I agree with the PP about going to more than one Doc for a consult. I almost got implants a few years ago, I was really close. I visited 3 of the most highly recommended Docs in my area. I was really glad I did, because the #1 doc on my list turned out to be not a good fit for me. I am fairly petite and he wanted to Pamela Anderson me. The last doc I visited was a female and her suggestions and advice were more in tune with what I wanted.
I ultimately decided against the implants as my mom had breast cancer. After all my research I found out that as a daughter of a breast cancer survivor, getting implants is not such a great idea (they mess up mammograms, self exams, etc.) Turns out it was a great decision for me. FI hates implants and I have already had a "lump" scare. So please do lots or research and give yourself plenty of time to recover. I'm not against implants, they just aren't for me. Besides my mom went up a few sizes when she had her reconstruction and I think it helped w/ her mental healing.
