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

I wanted to have a reduction from a previous breast augmentation. They were too large and I was starting to have back problems frequently from the additional weight. I have recently changed my lifestyle quite a bit to include lots of exercise. I want to be able to expand into marathons this coming year and was not able to commit to that due to my physical limitations.

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

My family was supportive about my decision and helped me along the way. My husband was by far the most supportive as he lives with the pain and complaining that Ii had daily. He and I had discussed it for about 6-9 months prior to making the decision to go to a consultation.

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

My initial request to 1800mySurgeon was answered almost immediately through a phone call. I heard back early the next day after entering my information. I was greeted by a wonderful lady who asked me a few questions in order to recommend a surgeon for my needs.

Can you describe your surgery and recovery?

I went to two consultations prior to making my final decision. The doctor was wonderful along with his staff. I was treated with the utmost respect during each interaction and even through to the aftercare visits. My appointments were on time but not rushed. They were flexible with my work schedule. I felt Dr. Green truly took time to do whatever necessary for the best possible outcome. I know that because of how well I was taken care of it made a big difference in how i felt after the surgery. I was back to work in 5 days. Due to the extensive amount of work that Dr. Green did, I felt that I may have had to be out for two weeks for recovery which was not the case. I was extremely pleased from the point of my first phone call until now which is only three weeks after surgery. Thanks to Dr. Green and his entire staff for taking great care of me.

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

Be sure to take the time to have consults with a few doctors even though the fees are typically 75.00. I knew listening to Dr. Green and his level of confidence that he was the one for me. I would encourage anyone having the procedure to make it happen. I already see a difference not only in how I look but how I feel.

How do you feel about your result?

I feel much more confident in how I look as a result. I also have already noticed the back pain lighten up and it has only been 3 weeks since the day of surgery.
