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

I had 2 children at a very young age and nursed the last one for several years. My breasts were not the same. They had lost almost all of the tissue and it just wasn't the same anymore. Every time I looked in the mirror I was quite disappointed. I just wanted to look better in clothes as well as feel confident nude in front of the mirror as well as my husband. I am very pleased with the results!

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

My husband was worried about the risks and complications of the surgery as well as the fact that I will possibly have to go through it again in 10 years.

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

1800mySurgeon did all the work. 1800mySurgeon was able to help me narrow it down to a board-certified surgeon in my area that was qualified. They also keep track of consumers.

Can you describe your surgery and recovery?

I had breast augmentation, 475 cc in both breasts. My incision was under the breast. The first week was very painful and uncomfortable. I thought it would never end or just keep getting worse. After 2 weeks I felt much better. I was able to drive and move around freely, still with limited activity.

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

Make sure you have someone that is going to be with you to wait on you hand and foot. It is not something that you take lightly. This is a major surgery with major risks. Choose your surgeon wisely.

How do you feel about your result?

I feel I made the right choice. I am still in the healing process, but I am sure I will be pleased with the end results.
