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

I was not happy with my large implants and wanted to go to a smaller implant - but wasn't ready for the scarring which occurs with a lift. I also was not happy with the "turkey waddle" under my chin. I thought finding a board-certified plastic surgeon that would deliver the phenomenal results I expected would be difficult.

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

My family supported both surgeries, especially the breast implant revision surgery (switching out the larger implants for much smaller implants).

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

I found 1800mySurgeon through my very finicky, very computer literate boyfriend. He recommended the site. I sent my "wants" into 1800mySurgeon, and they sent me my first recommendation. The first recommendation was a fabulous Doctor, but I definitely wanted to get two or three opinions/quotes.

Can you describe your surgery and recovery?

My surgery went smooth. No problems. Everyone was very nice and helpful. The professionalism and knowledge of Dr. Ambe's staff and Dr. Ambe himself is definitely at the top of the scale - if not THE TOP!

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

If you are considering a face lift, or anything with the breasts, I would advise you to see at least one or two Doctors. Do not "bargain hunt" when it comes to plastic surgery. If you want the best, don't waste your time, just go to Dr. Ambe. I guarantee that you will have to look no further than him. He is the best around - and believe me, I have seen my share of Doctors.

How do you feel about your result?

I'm so thrilled with my face lift! It looks completely natural (no pulling or "cat face" look). Guess what? No turkey waddle anymore! The breast implant revision was better than I expected. I did not want to have a "breast lift" yet. I was going from 600 cc to 375 cc - I should have needed a breast lift. Dr. Ambe did such an incredible job - with NO breast lift. When I do decide to eventually have my breast lift, I will be going straight to Dr. Ambe.
