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

After turning 60 years old, I decided that I wanted to make a change in my life.  I had been considering breast lift surgery for years and finally got the courage to actually do it.  It turned out to be the best thing I could have done for myself. 

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

When I told my best friend about my desire to have cosmetic surgery, she turned out to be very supportive.  Since she had several cosmetic procedures herself, she was able to give me advice and peace of mind. My family was also very supportive and helped during my recovery.

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

I actually live in Hawaii and wanted to have surgery in Los Angeles, because I wanted to be close to my family during my recovery.  I did not know of any plastic surgeons in L.A. and after doing research I found online.  They referred me to a few surgeons and through them I found my doctor.  Thanks for the referral!

Can you describe your surgery and recovery?

My surgery was overall very smooth.  I was most scared about the anesthesia, but even this was easier for me than I thought.  My surgeon and his staff were wonderful, everyone was so nice and caring which made the whole experience so relaxing.  I decided to stay overnight at an after-care facility and had a nurse with me.  This made me feel very safe.  I was in bed for 2 days resting, and felt better each and every day.

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

Do it!! In all honesty since my experience was so smooth, I would recommend anyone considering to make a change for themselves to have cosmetic surgery done.  The most important thing to remember is to do research, ask questions, get your friends and family involved and ask for help.  You are not alone.

How do you feel about your result?

I had my surgery last week.  I am very happy and recovering well.  My scars are fading quickly and even though I am still a little sore, I have been able to return to my daily activities after only 5 days.
