Recovery Experience from New York

Dear Terrye,

I want to send belated but sincere holiday wishes to you and Dr. Tebbetts, with a great big thank you to you and your whole team for an amazing transformational surgery experience thus far. I enjoy consulting your magnificent book nearly daily as my guide for continued recovery. That brilliant book is worth its weight in gold–each time I pick it up, I find new wisdom contained within.

I am feeling really well, having enjoyed a true 24 hour recovery, as well as a fabulous time in Dallas/Fort Worth. Thank you for accommodating my advance request to schedule a surgery date during time off from work that would allow for travel and sight-seeing, too. Not sure how I’d feel afterwards, I was amazed to really feel like going out and doing things right from the evening following surgery. My husband and I loved exploring the area each day we were there, including going to Northpark Mall the evening of surgery. We actually succeeded in leaving home for a “vacation” in Dallas/Fort Worth, and returned home with no one the wiser! We even saw old friends while there who never realized I was 48 hours post surgery!

I regard my decision for BA to be a deeply personal and private choice, representing fulfillment of my desire for a “normal” appearance-one substantially unchanged to most people because of the amount of padding I had always previously worn. The only people to whom I have chosen to disclose my BA are my husband, my two daughters, my physician and a close friend.

From the start of this journey my husband has been such a tremendous support and helper for me, providing a nice role reversal/rebalancing in our relationship. We are both EXTREMELY pleased with my results already. Whatever “dropping and fluffing” happens will just be icing on the cake! Over the weekend my husband and I saw the movie “Burlesque”. For the first time I was able to feel joy instead of shame, realizing, “Hey, I’ve got a pair of breasts, too!”

It is absolutely liberating for me to be able to wear clothes I already own without having to put on my padded bra “armor” (which was actually less natural than BA, in my opinion). Thus far since my BA I have gone braless or worn a camisole and my shape is already amazing. Believe me, I would never have dared going braless before, without drawing stares at my notably “concave” appearance. It is now fun to contemplate future shopping adventures! Having womanly proportional breasts unleashes in me a sense of liberation and confidence that I can’t find words to adequately express (rare for me!). BA truly is a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual experience that I profoundly appreciate in unexpected ways. I expect that you know better than I do, just how important your work is in helping women to achieve transformation that allows their inner and external self images to match up.

All along I have believed that my BA process would unfold if and how it was supposed to, with my responsibility being just to do my part–“Nothing ventured, nothing gained”. As I waited pre-op I intentionally chilled out, praying and meditating on that belief. I was very happy and relieved when it all went so extremely well. I hope that my process of physical recovery continues as it has to date. I am following your instructions closely and doing everything possible in hopes of avoiding problems over time.

My gratitude for your work is immeasurable! I want to encourage you to always remember that each woman you treat is uniquely special, and that you are helping her to fulfill a precious dream. Your work is deeply personal, important and you set glorious standards for it. Both you, Terrye, and you, Dr. Tebbetts, inspired my husband’s and my confidence by being fully present with us. Considering that you see thousands of patients, this is an invaluable quality that you bring to your work. You helped us to know that I was in capable, caring hands.

So I hope you will continue to do what you do so well and to also leave a legacy beyond your selves, among providers of this care. I thank you and your team from the bottom of my heart!
