Recovery Experience from Ohio
Patient Traveling from Ohio
After researching for months I stumbled upon Dr. Tebbetts book, The Best Breast 2; several people recommended reading this book “before” having breast augmentation. I did just that! After all the research I had done I thought I knew quite a bit about augmentation, that was until I read the book published by Dr. Tebbetts. This book gave me a whole new insight on everything from choosing the implant all the way to recovery. Once I read this book I knew I couldn’t settle for any less than the man himself who wrote the book, it just made that much sense, so much sense I was willing to travel from Ohio to Texas!
I will admit that the 24 Hour Recovery® still had me a little skeptical, I assumed this was a best case scenario recovery, not a typical recovery.
I called and scheduled my augmentation for Friday, Feb. 26. In the meantime I was in contact with the office several times and they were excellent at answering any questions I had and was extremely attentive.
Terrye is very knowledgable and prompt! She was a dream when it came to getting answers and getting them promptly.
On Wednesday I flew from Ohio to Texas and on Thursday I had my consult with Dr. Tebbetts. This was my first encounter with the doctor and he was everything I was expecting and more. He is extremely caring, compassionate, a straight forward kind of guy with a sense of humor. I instantly felt safe and secure!
Dr. Tebbetts did his measuring and assured me that I would be in great hands. The next day I reported to his office at my scheduled time and was taken back just a few minutes later. My IV was started, I was given something to relax me and I was taken across to the surgery suite…that’s all I remember until I woke up in the recovery room.
After waking up in recovery I was asked to lift my arms over my head, without bending my elbows…what a breeze! I couldn’t believe it, I could do it! I was taken back to my hotel room where I took a two hour nap as advised. After waking I ate the meal my boyfriend had picked up for me and took a Motrin. After eating I took a shower which included washing my own hair and I felt so great I even shaved my legs and all. I dryed and straightened my hair, did my makeup, got dressed and headed to the mall. I walked and shopped the mall for a few hours and the only reason I went back to my room was because things were closing. I was truly amazed, their 24 hour recovery was not a best case scenario as I had presumed, it was real, it was happening to me.
The next day I returned to the office for a 24 hour check-up and all was well. That day I took my 5 year old to the World Aquarium (less than 24 hours after surgery) and then to the Forth Worth Zoo and then to downtown Fort Worth where we spent hours; eating, shopping and going to the rodeos. All this only 24 hours after surgery and I felt great.
Monday I made the trip home and I’ve been doing wonderful. I have even been lucky enough to not have any swelling or water weight gain that a lot of gals complain about. In fact, I’ve not had any of the problems that these poor girls who go through a “traditional” augmentation complain about. I would not have done this any other way!
Dr. Tebbetts is real, he is knowledgable and cares about his patients, that’s why he has developed this technique and it’s why you should use him. His staff and his wife rate just as high! No disappointments! My boyfriend who is as skeptical as they come was extremely pleased with not only with the staff and the procedure, but with my recovery and the outcome.
