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

I had a breast augmentation 16 years ago. At a 38D, gravity had taken over. My breasts were heavy and sagging. I felt like they made me look fat and very unattractive. Clothing choices were always a challenge too. There were lots of things I just couldn't wear. I could never seem to find a bra with enough support.

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

My boyfriend and my family were very supportive about my decision. They knew that this was something I've wanted to do for a long time.

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

The staff at 1800mySurgeon was very helpful and great about always following-up. They gave me all the information I needed and continuously followed up with me to make sure I was being taken care of.

Can you describe your surgery and recovery?

Everything went smoothly. The nurses and Doctors were all so friendly. They explained everything that was going to happen. I felt very comfortable. Afterward, the nurse was very good about explaining some things to expect. I was given the tools I needed to take care of myself. The only problem I encountered was that the anesthesia made me nauseated and I had a headache until the next day.

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

I would suggest that they have help at home to change bandages and to be prepared for what the scars look like the first several days. I wasn't prepared enough for this and it can be upsetting. It made me ill. Another thing was that the pain killers I was prescribed didn't work too well.

How do you feel about your result?

It's been less than a week and even though the scars look terrible and I've still got some discomfort, I am very excited. I can see that I'm going to love the results. I just need to be patient through the healing process.
