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

I considered having cosmetic surgery due to health reasons. However, I had to have it done because I either was going to suffer all my life walking around in pain, or get it done and relieve the pain. Therefore, I decided to have it done not only for health reasons but also for my own needs. For far too long, I've walked around in shame being angry with myself because I couldn't wear certain garments due to the size and shape of my breasts. Its one thing to have large breasts but when they sag on top of that, it's really not a good look. Now, I feel and look like a teenager again :-) I'm so happy I am able to get back into all the tank tops I use to wear when I was younger, I can wear them with or without a bra if I choose too. That's how wonder Dr. Eric Sadeh has made me look. I am one happy patient. I would recommend anyone who is interested in having the same procedure done to consider him. Honestly, at first I was scared, I didn't think I was going to look this good. But I'm glad I got over the fear, I did it and I'm so rejoiced. Thank you Dr. Eric Sadeh - you are the best =D

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

My family and friends were not at all happy with the decision the doctor and I had decided on. They all didn't want me to do it but I didn't do it for them, I did it for me. I felt it was the best decision made, I have never been so happy for a while now until the day I was schedule for my surgery. At that moment, I knew I was going to have something done. I've always talked about doing it after my second child. And at that very moment, I didn't care what anyone thought because at the end of the day, it's my body. I did it so I can feel whole again. I was tired of being ashamed of not being able to feel comfortable taking off my bra in bed with my husband because my breast were too large. I was tired of crying myself to sleep thinking about how I used to look. Now I don't have to worry about all those minor things. I am cured. Thank God!

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

1800mySurgeon was very helpful. They gave me plenty of options with doctors close to or in my area. They made courtesy calls to see if I've picked a doctor of my choice and if I did, they wanted to know, if I was happy with my consultation with the doctor of my choice. 1800mySurgeon wouldn't give up until they knew the patient was happy and if you weren't, they made sure they continued to look for a surgeon that would please you. Thank you 1800mySurgeon =D you're the best!

Can you describe your surgery and recovery?

Everything went well and I had no problems. The hospital that Dr. Eric Sadeh performed my surgery at was one of the best hospitals. The whole staff treated me with dignity and respect. They really made it their business to make me feel at home and they were very intensive to my needs. The surgery didn't even seem that long, I guess I really was under :-). When I woke up and there was my hubby and the nurse, I had a little pain but nothing I couldn't bare with. Thank you Eye, Ear and Throat hospital your the best =D

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

First do your research and decide if this is something you really gave thought to and it's your decision and no one else's. Once you've decided this is something you want to do then all I can tell you is go with your inner voice and go for it. Especially if it has to do with health, do it. Then again, if you are not having any complications, then don't do it. The after effect is not cool because you are not going to be able to sleep comfortable the way you would like. There is pain like I said but its not to the point where you can't deal with it. I'm recovering fine actually and I haven't had too many complaints besides not being able to sleep on my stomach :-( other than that I am ok.

How do you feel about your result?

All I'm going to say is that I am one happy camper. I can't stop showing them off to family and friends, I love to here their remarks because they're all positive and I feel good all over. I can't wait until the summer, so I can wear all the clothes I've been dying to get in for some time now :-) I'm so excited and thrilled. Dr. Eric Sadeh really worked his magic. I'm a new women and I'm so proud.
