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

I have thought about having this surgery for years after breast feeding my son 21 years ago. I am almost 45 years old. I have MS and was scared to death as to what it would do to my condition. I am small framed and recently lost 20 pounds that I did not have to lose, but of course most of it came from what was left of my breast. I was so unpleased with my body and I wanted to do this for myself.

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

My friends and family were behind me the whole way, scared for me but very supportive. Their other concern was the cost and if it would make my condition flair up.

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

The 1800mySurgeon staff was very helpful. I had researched the internet and found Dr. Solomon's name on my own. Then 1800mySurgeon contacted me with the name of a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and it was Dr. Solomon. That's when I was sure I wanted to go see him.

Can you describe your surgery and recovery?

First of all, Dr. Solomon was very straightforward with me, which I liked. He told me all the pros and cons of the procedure and that he was not sure how it would affect my MS. He would not perform the surgery until he cleared it with my other doctors. I had it done on Friday and I spent the next weekend at the car racing track. On Monday, I went to Dorney Park for the day and I felt fine.

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

Make sure you're doing it for yourself. If you're ready for it, you will know it. I am now a nice full C. My only regret is that I waited so long.

How do you feel about your result?

I am so pleased with the results. The whole procedure went way better than I ever thought possible. The doctor checks to see how your doing and his assistants follow up. You're not left to suffer on your own. I think that Dr. Solomon did a fabulous job and I feel fine. I would recomend him to anyone thinking of having this work done, don't put it off.
