"Been planning for implants very soon & have been using Noogleberry pump in preparation for surgery. Have gained a cup size. Is this good preparation for implant surgery?"


DR. POUSTI: I am surprised that you have achieved such a significant change in breast size with the use of the pump! There are no other measures that I am aware of that will help prepare you for your planned breast operation. Remember, when planning the operation to emphasize “safety first”; the use of “>breast implants that are too large for a patient’s frame may be problematic (and increase the need for further surgery in the short term).
