Share your story about why you considered and ultimately had cosmetic surgery.

I have always been unhappy with the size of my breasts. I keep myself in good shape, even after having 3 children, but there was nothing I could do about the size of my breasts without surgery. I am 38 years old and finally decided that I was going to have the surgery done.

How did your friends and family feel about your decision to have a procedure?

My friends and family had mixed feelings about me having the procedure. Most were happy and excited for me, but a few thought I was being foolish. They thought I looked good the way I was and didn't think I should risk undergoing surgery.

How did 1800MySurgeon help you through the process of finding a qualified plastic surgeon?

1800mySurgeon helped me find a qualified surgeon that I felt confident using. It saved me a lot of time researching all the surgeons in my area. After 1800mySurgeon gave me the referral, I checked the doctor out online and was reasured by all the good things I read about him.

Can you describe your surgery and recovery?

I had a transumbilical breast augmentation (TUBA method), which means the doctor went through my belly button to place the implants. There is no visible scar! I was amazing. I had some pain the next two days, but not as much as I've heard from other people who have had breast enlargement. My surgery was on a Wednesday and I went back to work on Friday. I still had some pain & couldn't lift anything, but I could still do my job.

What advice would you give to another person considering your same procedure?

If you are considering breast enlargement, definitely consider the TUBA procedure. Besides not leaving a visible scar, there is less chance of infection & quicker recovery. There are very few doctors that do the procedure well, (it takes a very skilled surgeon), so let 1800mySurgeon help you find one!

How do you feel about your result?

I feel wonderful after having the surgery done. I feel much more confident in my appearance. I no longer struggle to find clothes that look OK and don't make me look too flat chested. I don't even try clothes on anymore in the store because I know everything will look great!
