Melissa is a 28-year-old personal trainer who competes in cross-fit competitions. Melissa was previously a dedicated weightlifter and competed in the bodybuilding world. While Melissa is in really great shape, becoming so lean and muscular affected the size of her breasts. They became much smaller, and Melissa developed some loose skin from losing the fatty tissue.
“I just wanted to fill in what I had lost. In a sports bra my boobs were like pancakes. When you work out like I do, there’s always a fear of looking too masculine because of the muscle volume. I really thought that having larger breasts would not only help me look more feminine but also balance me out since I am curvy,” explained Melissa.
Melissa found Dr. Parker while researching her procedure on the Internet. She has lots of friends who have had breast augmentation surgery, but she wanted to do her own research and have her own experience. She looked at dozens of photos on Dr. Parker’s website and read through the patient’s stories. Melissa really liked what she saw. Dr. Parker was Melissa’s first consultation. She was so pleased with how Dr. Parker and his staff approached her surgery, and she felt completely confident in booking her procedure.
“My biggest fear was looking like a porn star. I didn’t want to look like that. Angela and Dr. Parker understood exactly what I was looking for and explained to me in detail how they were going to achieve it. I wanted breasts that would not only balance my body out but would look really natural,” said Melissa.
Melissa had silicone implants placed under the muscle which gives patients the most natural look. Because her job is so physical, she took two weeks off from work and eased back into her training schedule. Melissa went on to explain that she had a phenomenal experience at the Parker Center for Plastic Surgery. She has already recommended Dr. Parker to two friends, one who had a tummy tuck and another who is just beginning her research.
The post-operative lymphatic massages that were part of her recovery really surprised Melissa. Because of her tight muscles, she was a little hesitant to have the massages. Melissa was amazed at how good she felt afterwards and believes that the massages really helped in her speedy recovery.
“I love my results and would do it again in a heartbeat. My breasts are now perfect, exactly what I wanted. Dr. Parker completely understood what I wanted and now I’ve got them. I’m so much more confident. When your body is a big part of your job, it helps to be confident,” Melissa said.
Breast augmentation at the Parker Center is performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia and generally takes approximately one hour. Dr. Parker is a strong advocate of patient education and his patients generally spend an hour having a pre-op consultation.
