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

Being in my mid 40's, I thought it's time to have my breasts put back in the right place. I'd been considering it for sometime but never had the courage to go ahead and do it. I read a lot about breast lifts on the internet and made up my mind to go ahead with the procedure. At my consultation it was suggested that I have an augmentation as well - purely to "fill out" the sagginess. The liposuction across my back completed the look that I was hoping for.

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

I didn't really tell anyone until after the procedure, my boyfriend was delighted - he knew from the start and was there for me during my recovery period. Now my friends are all "good for you". They realized that it was something that I needed to do to boost my own self-esteem and were happy for me.

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

1800mySurgeon put me in touch with the surgeon that carried out my procedures. They encouraged me to get a second opinion if I wasn't happy - which I was, very! The surgeon recommended by 1800mySurgeon was excellent and very professional, his staff are amazing.

Can you describe your surgery and recovery?

I can't really describe the surgery except that it took quite some time and the results - to date - are great. I am three weeks into recovering - sometimes I have a lot of pain but most of the time it's just discomfort. Every day gets easier or should I say less uncomfortable. I'm looking forward to wearing those vest type tops without huge bra straps showing.

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

Make sure that you are having the procedure for the right reasons - don't let anyone force you into having something done that you are not happy with. Make sure that you have plenty of time to recover before you have to get back into the every day normal swing of things.

How do you feel about your result?

The results aren't yet complete but to date I feel great about the surgery, they look great and they stay in place - perfect! I am definitely glad that I went ahead with the procedure and am looking forward to the finished product in a few weeks.
