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

I turned 50 in January and I had been thinking about having a breast lift for years. Ever since I had my son, my breasts have been droopy, making me feel much older than I was, very self -conscious in a bathing suit and etc. I just never had the money or the time and I was also scared.  A friend of mine gave me some information and told me I should call 1800mySurgeon to make sure I would see a board certified plastic surgeon.

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

I only told two of my friends because I knew they would understand and be supportive. I would be embarassed to tell my family because they would probably say it was a waste of my money and it was vanity. But you know what, I worked hard for my money and I should be able to spend it the way I want. I have always spent my money on others and it felt good to do something for myself for a change. It certainly wasn't vanity because I didn't have any. All I know is, I won't be wearing a T-shirt in the pool anymore.

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

1800mySurgeon told me what I should watch out for and they gave me detailed information on my surgeon. They followed up with me after my initial consultation to see how it went and asked if I would like to see someone else.

Can you describe your surgery and recovery?

My surgery was just yesterday and it started about 12:30 p.m. Everyone was really, really nice. I was under anesthesia so I don't remember too much. I went to an after-care facility the first night so I wouldn't be alone. The next day I saw my doctor at his office and then I took a cab home. My doctor actually helped bring my belongings out to the cab so I wouldn't have to carry them. I just got home today and I am a little sore, but compared to childbirth it's a breeze.

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

I would say to someone considering a breast lift to talk to others who have had one and to call 1800mySurgeon.  They will walk you through the process at no cost to you. It doesn't get much better than that.

How do you feel about your result?

So far, good. Since it's only been a day so far, it may be a little too soon to tell, but from what I can see I think I will be very happy.
