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

I had my children at a very early age, which in turn after time caused my breasts to sag. Also I felt that I did not have enough time to enjoy my body before the changes that occured due to child birth. I felt I deserved to do this for myself. I have wanted this procedure done for quit some time and I finally could financially afford to do so.

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

They were surprised but, they were very supportive. My son came with me the day of my surgery. All of my family asked about what the surgery entailed. They also ask how I am doing on a regular basis. My daughter-in-law was very complimentary on how good my breasts look.

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

After I asked 1800mySurgeon for information on a surgeon for my specific needs they emailed me and called me with information on board certified plastic surgeons to choose from. They sent me detailed information on Dr. Sadove. I then called the Doctor's office to set up a consultation and decided from there. 1800mySurgeon also followed up to see if I had made a decision or if I needed them to further help me find another choice.

Can you describe your surgery and recovery?

When I arrived just had a few papers to sign then was taken back to a prep room. The anesthesiologist talked to me about what he would be doing and gave me something to make me feel comfortable. The doctor came in and talked to me and marked me for surgery. Then I was taken to the operating room given anesthesia and before I knew it I was in the recovery room. I have been back for post op checks as scheduled and recovering well.

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

Make sure you get a board certified plastic surgeon. I would tell them that 1800mySurgeon helped me find my surgeon. Also I would tell them that I was very satisfied with the surgeon that I chose. Another thing that I would tell them is to have the procedure done in the winter. I think cooler weather would be better for recovery.

How do you feel about your result?

I am really satisfied. My breasts are much more lifted than before. The only thing that I wasn't expecting is the time it takes for the incisions to heal.
