Hi all, I had a bilateral in Feb this year with immediate reconstruction. Expanders were put in, the expansion process took about 4-5 months and at times were very painful. The expanders were not natural lookin at all and very hard and uncomfortable. For any of you going thru what I did and are awaiting your permanent implants, it is well worth it!! The procedure lasted only a couple of hours, minimal pain, most dicomfort was from anest. I had this done Fri and am only slightly sore, and they look wonderful!! I am so happy of the results, they dont look anything like the expanders, they look and feel so natural!! I cant wait until my steristrips come off so I can see the whole outcome. I know there have been some horror stories on here about this procedure so I wanted to share my very positive experience and hope it gives some of you hope. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org if anyone wants to talk about it. Take care all.
