Draper, UT | Breast Augmentation Recovery | Jerry Chidester, MD

A single patient's experience on Breast Augmentation recovery.


Speaker 1: So we have one of our awesome patients here. She was totally willing to talk on camera because she's awesome about her experience with breast augmentation, which was about three weeks ago.

Amanda: Yep.

Speaker 1: Can you tell us a little bit maybe what did you have done and how'd it go?

Amanda: So I did a breast augmentation with saline implants and it's something I've always wanted to do, but I finally came in and had a consult and it was so awesome, so wonderful. I pretty much pulled the trigger right away. I think I came in two weeks, got it done two weeks later, but I was a little nervous at first because I just wasn't sure what the recovery would be like. But honestly, everything went so smoothly and seamlessly and I was really nervous for surgery day, but then as soon as I got here in the morning, I was like, "Okay, this is good. This is great." Actually, after I woke up I was like, "I could just stay here the rest of the day and hang out." But the recovery was really good. It was really smooth. It was not even nearly as painful as I thought it would be, so that was a relief for me, I was a little nervous about that. I have two little kids at home, so I wasn't sure how that was going to go.

Speaker 1: And how's that been with handling your kids and your husband's helpful too, right?

Amanda: Yeah, he's great. I would say the first three or four days I just had to be really careful about what I did. I still am not lifting my children, they're a little too heavy. I probably should stop doing that anyways for my back but it was great.

Speaker 1: Good, good.

Amanda: Yeah, I would do it again.

Speaker 1: Awesome. Well, you've been awesome. You've been telling everybody on Instagram, you've been tagging all your friends, so funny. Every time I see you I'm like, "Oh, there she is tagging."

Amanda: I'm proud of it. I'm so happy, so happy with the results and I just want everyone to be able to be as happy as I am.

Speaker 1: Well, thank you. And we love that you're so happy and you bring us the greatest food. I thought I was a foodie surgeon, no. I DM her and just be like, "Hey, where should I go eat?" So if you really want to know food, she's the go-to, Amanda. So anyway, thank you so much...

Amanda: Thank you.

Speaker 1: ... for sharing your experience.

Amanda: Thank you.

Speaker 1: Of course.

Amanda: Anytime.

Speaker 1: Awesome.
