Amazing Breast Augmentation experience – After years of contemplating breast augmentation surgery, I decided to finally go for it. I met with Alix and Dr. Walden and went over exactly what I wanted, which was relatively small implants (200cc), as I am pretty athletic and didn't want anything drastic, but just something. That was exactly what I got and I am so happy! My experience was amazing. From the availability of scheduling, Lara being super friendly, answering all my questions and just so accomodating in regard to scheduling, as well as my whole surgical experience. I arrived to the surgery center and the nurses were so kind to me.. I had never had surgery at before, so this was the first time I was going to "go under". My anesthesiologist, Dr. David Silver was also AMAZING. I told him that my mother reacts to general anesthesia by vomiting and he said that he would give me something to prevent that (which obviously worked). I did not feel him insert my IV, and before the procedure, as I lay on the table, he was at the head and told me everything going on, what I would feel, the coldness of the IV solution, etc.. I felt so safe.. I also had a vision (which might not be true, but I think it was) as the anesthesia was kicking in, I recall Dr. Walden sitting next to me (waiting for me to be out) singing softly the words of the country music song playing on the radio...that put me at tremendous ease and the next thing I knew was I was waking up. I had almost no pain as I only took pain meds the first day, and probably didn't need them. The hardest part was getting Alix to release me back to the gym (as I was asking that same week)!! :) I had my surgery on a Friday and was back to work on Monday, but answering work emails as soon as I returned home from surgery.. I would refer all to Dr. Walden. She and her staff are fun, available and make you feel as if you have known them for a long time. And, of course, Dr. Walden is a very gifted surgeon..
