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

I previously had breast implants, and my right breast had deflated by a fall I had taken. I knew I needed to replace it because I was so uneven for a matter of months, so I went online and came across 1800my Surgeon.com, I was very pleased with their staff and they found a board-certified plastic surgeon that lived closest to me. 1800mySurgeon arranged the consultation and that's where I met Dr. Sutkin. I liked him right off the bat, and also was very comfortable with him, and so was my husband (he came with me). We talked about the procedure and because of my age he suggested a little bit of a lift which was done around the nipple area. The day came for the surgery, I was so comfortable with my Doctor that I wasn't even nervous, and the staff at BASG were all wonderful and made sure that I was comfortable (which I was). The procedure only took 2 hours. I was down for that day but the next day I was better. By the third day, even better. The fourth day I was off pain medicine, and was doing light chores around the house. The sixth day I was back at work and doing fine. I love my new and improved breasts. Ladies, save your money, it's worth it. :) My Doctor has me on breast massage which is very easy to do, you might want your husband to even help you with that. It's very enjoyable. The massage helps aid in softening the implants. In three months, I will see my Doctor again. He is already pleased with the outcome as well as my husband and I, so be sure to use 1800mySurgeon.com. They are very informative and can give you a rough estimate on how much it might cost. I hope this will help you decide in the future to go for it. It's great, you're in good hands, trust me.

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

Not very many people I know I have gone through the procedure for breast implants. My sister knows and my mother knows, she was with me when I was recovering. My sister is cool with it and my mom didn't say, but she respects my decision and was amazed on my quick recovery. My husband is cool with it as well, but it really didn't matter to him.

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

My patient coordinator's name was Rosie. She's a very nice person. She asked me what kind of procedure I was interested in and asked my address so that she could find the nearest Surgeon facility by me. She called up the Surgeon's office and even set up the consultation. Great staff! Thanks again 1800mySurgeon.com.

Can you describe your surgery and recovery?

Piece of cake!!! I arrived at 8am, one hour before surgery for prep, put on one of those gowns, then a nurse put an IV and covered me with yummy warm blankets. My Doctor came in, we talked about the implants and he then drew with a marker on my breasts for his direction for insertion and we high fived each other and said he would see me in a few. Then my Anesthesiologist came in and gave me a shot to relax me, then shortly I was rolled into the operating room, with the nurse, Doctor and Anesthesiologist. He proceeded to have me take deep breaths that knocked me out. My husband was called, he greeted me and took me home. All in all, it took about 3 hours including prep time.

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

Knowing the experience of the surgery and what to expect and how it was a breeze to go through, I would definitely say to anyone considering breast implants to go for it. I would tell them to trust the surgeon and that it is a common procedure that he or she knows and to be excited about it. They will receive great results

How do you feel about your result?

I am beautiful again. I felt the Doctor was very personal and professional and did a very very good job. I love it, love it, love it. When the time comes for replacement again, I would definitely seek the same Surgeon and go through it again. The shape and fullness of my breasts are perfect. Yeeha!! Good job everyone.
