33 Yr Old, Very Small 34A, No Kids, Finally Went for It!! - New York City, NY - She's awesome. - - Without making this too long winded- I had been wanting implants since I was about 15. I had a very slight constriction and I was always unhappy with the size and shape of my breasts. My 34A never looked like the other girls' 34A's. I felt guilty for a long time even to consider plastic surgery, but as I got older i had more confidence in what I wanted, and cared less about why I shouldn't do something, especially if it was going to make ME happy, and make ME feel better. Do not let anyone make this decision for you! After a few years of research and a few consults with surgeons, I came across Dr.Khuthaila here on RealSelf. I had a good feeling about her, and decided to meet with her. As soon as I got into her office, I felt at ease. She had the different sizes, brands, and types of implants I could try on, and she listened to what I wanted, while offering me her personal and professional opinion as to what would look good on my body. Her assistant, Alexandra, was great also. Super smiley and very patient to reply to all my 200 emails as promptly as she did. I must've asked a thousand questions. Leaving her office, I felt really good, and more certain than ever that this is what I wanted to do, and SHE was the surgeon I wanted to do it. I decided on 350cc, smooth round. Im glad I didn't go any smaller, because of course, now I know i could have gone bigger and they still would have looked amazing. Going into surgery I was nervous but mostly very very excited. I had never gone under before, and I was worried about anesthesia, but everyone was so great and calm and patient with me, that I just kind of gave in and gave up. Next thing I remember was waking up. I had VERY little pain. Sure, I was sore, but I was preparing for the absolute worst. I know everyone is different, but I think the way Dr.K practices, she definitely minimizes the pain and recovery time. I had no leaks, no tubes, no surgical chest wrap, nothing. I wasn't even on prescription pain killers! I took Motrin. Its been a little over two months now, and I couldn't be happier with the girls. I immediately felt like they were mine after surgery. I am 100% certain I made one of best decisions of my life doing this. I feel great, I am able to wear things and just have confidence that I have never had before. As I stated before: never let anyone influence your decision to have cosmetic surgery in a negative way. It is a very personal decision and 9/10 times, its worth it. I am still dropping, softening, and taking it easy with them since It has not even been 4 months yet. But I feel like I've had them forever. Please consider Dr.Khuthaila if you are thinking of getting this procedure done.
Loving my New Breasts!! - I couldn't recommend Dr. Khuthalia more! From the moment I met her she made me feel at ease and answered all my questions. Both her and her office manager are there supporting you before, during and after! My shape is amazing and they look so natural!!! I am 5 6, 135 lbs. I wore a 34b before (small 34b) and I had 300 cc silicone placed under the muscle. 7 weeks post op I'm wearing a Victoria's Secret 32d. It's crazy how instantly you get used to your new breasts and feel like they've always been yours. Tip: if you like your small chest you will LOVE them big! - - Getting a BA was one of the best decisions I've made in my adult life! What an instant confidence booster! I did a lot of research and met with 3 NYC doctors until I decided to go with my surgeon. She was absolutely amazing and completely understand my wants and concerns. Seriously no regrets, except maybe I would have gone a little bigger. I am 5 6, 135 lbs. I wore a 34b before (small 34b) and I had 300 cc silicone placed under the muscle. 7 weeks post op I'm wearing a Victoria's Secret 32d. It's crazy how instantly you get used to your new breasts and feel like they've always been yours. My number one concern prior to surgery was my fear of other people's judgement if/when they discovered I had a surgery done for vanity, and it's crazy how post surgery I could care less and others could truly care less about me having had surgery. Most friends are happy for me/envious! Even my anti-plastic surgery mom is happy for me as she sees how happy I am. Tip: if you like your small chest you will LOVE them big!
Felt Immediately at Ease, Comfortable, and Excited - Manhattan, NY - It can be very overwhelming looking for a plastic surgeon. You want a surgeon who treats you like a person, and not a number. I was looking for a surgeon who understood how much I value my body, and finding the perfect look for me to suit my size and frame. I was so lucky to come across Dr. Dana Khuthaila, I found her profile online and was impressed with her portfolio. My first impression of her office was that it was clean, and had very friendly staff. During my consultation, Dr. Dana Khuthaila asked me many questions about why I was there, and what I was looking for. I had a few concerns about the breast procedure- would I be able to breastfeed if I had children? (YES!), would I still have feeling in my nipples? (YES), would they look natural looking (YES!), and would I be able to live life normally after the procedure? (YES). I got gel implants with 350 CC, I went from size A to a size D. The size I got looks natural to my body size, and I can still wear almost all of my clothes with the exception of my bras. I can sleep on my stomach (which I thought I could never do again!) and I can still have an active lifestyle. They feel very natural, and I feel so much more confident about myself after my surgery. They were swollen for the first few weeks (and I will warn you, they look much larger than what you thought you got when you wake up from surgery) but it will reduce and look normal again I promise! While in recovery, Dr. Dana was available day or night, and would call regularly to check in on me. I have had a few post- op consultations since then and I have not had any problems with them. The surgery itself took place at a beautiful facility with knowledgeable staff and had me knocked out before I entered the surgery area (as I get a little nervous). I was so happy to find a doctor like Dr. Dana who truly listened, and made me feel comfortable at every stage. She is a lovely person, and a great doctor!
I LOVE Dr Khuthaila. She is one of the very few doctors that will not only do an amazing and meticulous job, but will take her time to explain the procedure and answer all questions along the way, and do it with the integrity of a true professional and with the best interest of the patient in mind first and foremost. I saw many plastic surgeons before I found her, at the recommendation of a very close friend, and once you meet her, you will immediately understand why her patients love her so much. She's treated me and my mom, I've recommended her to friends and will keep going back to her. She is 5 star all around. As an added bonus, her gorgeous office overlooks Central Park and is close to wonderful restaurants and the nice shops on 5th and Madison. Thank you Dr Khuthaila!!!
