I read a lot of great reviews and had a consult with Dr. Charles Lee. I felt a little rushed but later thought he was just busy. After just inquiring about getting breast enhancements, I walked out of there with a lot less money and an appointment for surgery to have silicone implants and a nose job. I felt pressured from Dr. Lee to have several procedures done, also from his assistants (they... more
I always wanted big breast and I finally had the money for them. I went in and reserved the day got them done but the only thing I hate is the fact that I have to sleep on my back I hate hate hate sleeping on my back :( and I also hate the fact that I can't do nothing on my own specially work out :/ ... Well is been so good so far but we'll see the outcome wish me luck!!!
Ugh my back is... more
I have been wanting a BA since I found out they existed, but haven't really been in the position ($$$!) to consider going through with it, until NOW! Words cannot express how giddy I am about all of this so far, and I haven't even had my first consult yet :-p I am probably currently 32AA or 34A but have never been properly measured due to embarrassment and the fact that I basically use bras... more
Everything in life happens for a reason...as is the case of my meeting Dr. Jarrah-Nejad...it was pure serendipity. I had recently lost weight and was interested in getting a breast augmentation done. I began my journey they way most people do...I asked my friends who they went to for their breast augmentations. I went to a number of consultations but never quite connected with any of the... more
I'm finally doing it: starting the wheels in motion and taking control of my future!
I've always been super small, and around seventh grade I completely stopped growing. I'm about 5'7" and have stayed between 105-108 lbs and about 10% body fat over the past thirteen years. I'm also Asian, so my ribcage is super tiny and my overall frame is pretty small compared to non-Asian girls around my... more
I had a lumpectomy & radiation on one breast many years ago, leaving it scared and smaller than the other. I finally had surgery to fix it, but the breast is now hard and discolored. Also, I now have a scar on the good breast from my nipple to my chest. I am very unhappy and I'm wondering if anyone else has had this experience. I would love to hear from anyone who has had a similar experience... more
I cannot believe this is actually going to happen! I have wanted bigger boobs for more than 20 years – actually, maybe more like 30 years! I remember wearing a bathing suit under my clothes at 7 years old so I’d have something to stuff with toilet paper. But the boobs never came – just not in my genes. I’ve been a 32A to 34B my whole life. After breastfeeding four kids (first when I... more
I don't know if they are still settling. I hope they come more together as they have a bit. I am 3 months post op and I don't know if I will need a revision I was wishing not to but I guess I have to wait it out more. I have a friend who said they looked weird and didn't looks good until 6 or 7 months. more
New mommy and 7 months post partum, I started to notice less volume in breasts. Was a nice perky 32B, and just wanted more fullness. Was scared of the recovery time and also pain, but none were a major issue post operation. No bruising, little pain, and I was very mobile. The results are exactly what I wanted.
I healed quickly and did not endure the pain I thought would be associated... more
I wanted to have the density back in my natural B-C cup. I had the skin but it was saggy and flat. I just wanted them "filled" up again naturally. Not like cantaloupes on my chest. I am very active so I just wanted the skin filled no larger. I surely didn't want the "high round" look. I love my results from Dr. Teitelbaum Cohesive gel "gummy bear" implant. The fact they don't need... more
I say it was not worth (not exactly sure what I paid in 90's) it because of my present situation. I had breast implants done sometime around 1996... Cannot say exactly because Dr. Leslie Stephens, in BH, who did the surgery miraculously lost my chart! I loved my breast implants and wish I had done the SALINE implants and had a better understanding of the risk! It is now Jan 2014 and I am... more
Dr. Kim is an amazing Plastic Surgeon!
I had a breast augmentation by him back in August. I could not be more thrilled with my results. Dr. Kim spent an hour with me at my initial consultation and answered all my questions. He really put my mind at ease. The surgery and recovery were easier than I thought it would be. What I really loved is that after my surgery he continued to follow up... more
So I've started seriously considering getting implants in the last month or so. I'm 5'6" about 135lbs, athletic, 34B( I don't fill it out completely) and 23. I've very comfortable with my body, especially since I discovered the gym and started getting my squat on :) but I think breast implants would be incredible! My boyfriend and I discussed it and he is very supportive although I don't think... more
I am getting a breast augmentation on December 17th, 2013. I am getting between 500 and 550 ccs. I am not sure which one. I am getting saline through the belly button approach. I am 19 years old. I am 5'5. I weigh between 100 and 105 pounds. My doctor is Dr. David E Kim in Beverly Hills California.
Here are some before pictures. (For some reason a lot of people ask me if my boobs are real) So... more
My doctor has been lovely and attentive. My experience with her has been really great overall. However, the pain has been excruciating. Much more so than what most people experience, I believe. One reason I chose to get implants was that I am somewhat pigeon chested from a very athletic childhood. I have always had a very prominent, muscled clavicle and rib cage in relation to my actual breast... more
Finally decided to get BA done after 20yrs. When I was 13yrs old, I was riding my bike and got hit by a car, flew off my bike, and landed straight on my chest. It flattened and compressed my chest and ribs, especially my right side, leaving it somewhat disfigured. I never thought about it after. I accepted my flat chest for years. Covering it w/ padding or wearing no bra at all. I did love my... more
1. Make sure your PS has experience with AA skin.
A. My PS asked me about keloids not hyperpigmentation. Well I developed scaring under the breast fold 3 months later.
B. I used shea butter, cocoa butter, skin lightening with 2% hydroquinone, and bio-oil. I don't wear underwire bras. 11 months later scars are still there.
2. Ask to see pictures before/after pictures of AA patients.
I've had boobs since grade 3, but I swear they hadn't grown since then. I had lost about 39 lbs over the last few years and told myself my present to myself would be new boobs. I re-gained 10 lbs, but plan to re-drop those pounds soon and went ahead with my present!
Finally at almost 32 years old, I left Canada and flew to Beverly Hills for the long awaited procedure. I had consults... more
I had always had small breasts. I should of done something years ago, but got the courage only last year. My breasts were sagging and small looked like spaniels ears, it is true, I was very ashamed of my breasts and rarely ever had been taking bra off even when I was alone.
I was afraid of any surgeries, but I went and did it and it didn't even hurt that much, I took pain killer first day... more
