I am approximately one week post op. I was off meds by the 3rd day, I didn't suffer from the extreme nausea after these procedures because the anesthesiologist added something to my sedation meds to help ward off nausea, God bless him.
My reaction to my first look at my breasts at three days was almost near panic. I expected the Frankenstein appearance but not the shape. They looked like... more
I was always fond of my breasts but after 2 C sections I was hell bent on a tummy tuck and decided to consider a lift at the same time. At first I was discouraged by the fact that there weren't many photos online without a lift AND implants which I knew I didn't want. I was also very freaked out by the scarring. I even canceled the apt. for the lift. But when I saw Dr. Farbod again and he... more
This will be my second surgery with Dr. Stoker. The first surgery was TT and panniculectomy in Feburary of this year. Click here to read my review. This time are four separate procedures, although all related and all upper body. I can't believe I'm having another plastic surgery. I can't even believe I have a plastic surgeon, for that matter.I've lost 150 pounds in the past 10 years,... more
I am super nervous/excited. Tomorrow I am going in to get a benelli lift and a bit of lipo on my abdomen and hips. I have been working out like crazy and just can't seem to get rid of my "pooch" after baby. My baby is a little over a year. I plan to post before and after pics to help anyone out that is thinking of having the same thing. It helped me a lot to look at all the other people on... more
I am a 48 year old woman and have always had very large breasts. With my age I have seen my breasts drop lower and lower every year. I had been afraid of having a breast lift due to the scaring and also of the time it would take to heal. I looked all over the internet, talked to friends and any other woman I came across asking about great doctors. Came across Dr. Rahban, made an appointment... more
I heard about Dr Corbin from my friends who has Breast surgery with Dr Corbin who look amazing,so I went for consultation. My breast were very deformed and hung very low. After having my surgery breast lift and augmentation with Dr Corbin, WOW you can't see any scars at all and I have never look better even when I was a teenager. My husband is so happy I had these procedures and says I look... more
In Nov. 2012, I had Dr. Steven Teitelbaum performed a breast lift procedure on me. The reason for the breast lift is because I had lost about 100 pounds and everything went south. After researching and getting two other consulations from Board Certified Plastic Suregons, Dr. Teitelbaum was the ONLY doctor who gave me hope that my breast lift would NOT decrease my breast size. Since I am 55... more
I am unsatisfied with result..I got this procedure done for self confidence only to be more embarrassed after it ...I feel worse then before I got it done. I wish I would have done more research...I want to get my breast redone if possible.After my precedure right away everyone had noticed how flat I look and how high they were.. some even made a comment about them looking squished...I had ask... more
I recently had a breast lift and I am currently 10 days post op. My doctor told me I should now take the Steri strips off the incision and begin using a triple antibiotic for 7 days followed by the scar gel. Needless to say, viewing the incision for the first time was not easy and I am worried it could have possibly been too early to remove the steri strips. I do not want to increase scarring.. more
I DID the surgery and WOW! No more neck and shoulder pain and I feel so much better.My breasts went from a G-H to a nice perky c-d. I am very happy with their shape and the lift! It was a difficult recovery but one I would do again to feel like this. more
I have had saggy breasts since I was in my 20s. In recent years I gained and lost a significant amount of weight, making my breasts look even worse. I had lost over 40 pounds, but still felt very self conscious due to my breasts. I felt I was too young to settle for this so I started investigating my options. The thought of surgery scared me, but after about a year I decided to meet with... more
My breasts look like they belong on two different people. Always small, after two babies and nursing for a year each, they are two distinctly different sizes. I'm embarrassed to wear a bathing suit and clothing just looks bad. Bras don't fit. I'm having a lift and augmentation. Still not sure of the size but leaning towards a C cup. I'm barely an A on one side now and a very small A on the... more
I was initially referred to Dr. Verbin by my gynecologist. She said that he did the best tummy tuck she had ever seen. That spoke volumes to me because who sees more tummies than an OBGYN? However I went in for a consultation regarding how extremely unhappy I was with the outcome of two previous botched surgery from a breast lift. The "anchor scars" that come with a breast lift were hideous... more

Today marks exactly 4 weeks before my surgery... and I have yet to decide if I actually want a reduction or not! The boobs will definitely be lifted, and Dr. Downey has decided on a lollipop lift with a small, 2cm incision at the base. Granted, I am 24 and a 32DD... but I have heard reports that once the breast is reshaped and lifted it will actually look much smaller anyway.... more

Great surgeon, great staff, great results
After having three kids, two of which are twins and 18 years later, I felt like I needed a lift and so did my breast! Having said that, I went in for a consultation and came out with a breast reduction and lift. Life as I know it now is "perky" and I'm loving every minute of it! I feel and look 20 years younger... more
My breasts grew in very fast when I hit puberty and as such the skin stretched, leaving my breasts a little on the saggy side and not so round. Long story short (yes this is short) I went to Dr. Petti for a lift; she also recommended putting in subglandular implants to make them more round. I trusted her opinion so I decided to go through with it.
After the surgery, I was left with MASSIVE... more
I am biased i guess, as i work with Dr. Stevens and know how important our patients and their care is to him and all of us.
After having my implants in for 14 years and reaching menopause and seeing how my breasts changed, felt fuller and i felt a bit more top heavy, i wanted to go smaller with the implants and wanted to be perkier and needed a lift. I am so happy, i love my new smaller... more
I had always been a double "D" and had always had a problem with the size. I could never find any pretty bras and at the end of each day I always went to bed with a back ache. sleeping face down was never an option. after having a child and breast feeding, my breast were never the same. I desperately needed a breast lift, but i was scared of the scars. I looked around, but could not... more
After having four children and breastfeeding each one of them, my breasts deflated from a full C cup to an A cup... the A cup consisting of skin ONLY. All of my breast tissue was gone. What a horrible mess I was left with!
I did not want to live the rest of my life with these breasts, but was so afraid of undergoing surgery. I finally made the decision to get it done... I needed both a... more
