I went to Dr. Poulos for a breast revision in 2007. I was very clear with him as to what I wanted to get done. At the time, I had no scars whatsoever on my breasts because my first surgery was done via TUBA. After explaining to him that I underwent a TUBA procedure to avoid scars, Dr. Polous assured me that he will correct my breast asymmetry by making a very small half-moon incision... more
I previously had saline implants placed above the muscle 10 years ago. They needed to be replaced with silicone implants under the muscle. This procedure was long overdue. I had been putting it off because I was nervous about how they would turn out. I met with Dr. Canales and he went over many different options with me until I felt comfortable with the size and the shape of implant I wanted.... more
I had my 550 saline implants for 16 years. They encapsulated and were very painful. I wanted them out! Dr. Candles was absolutely wonderful. He took the time to listen to my concerns and offered logical suggestions that helped my to make the perfect decision for my body and satisfaction. I couldn't be happier! He was able to completely correct my encapsulation and even put in smaller... more
Dr. Heather Furnas has performed multiple procedures helping me return my body to its glory following two pregnancies. In this case, I had a breast implant revision including replacement with larger implants and a bilateral wedge lift and pocket revision to increase lateral support. I went from 550cc high profile silicone implants to 750cc high profile silicone implants, which fit my broad,... more
Describe my motivation, pros and cons, etc. ...well, I have quite the story! I became very ill and spent 5 yrs looking for a diagnosis of my illness. I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis & sent to an MS clinic. Fortunately, I didn't have MS but the dr. said my symptoms were from silicone poisoning and I needed my implants exchanged immediately. I went and had that surgery done in 2008. My... more
I had received my initial breast augmentation aprx. 15 yrs. ago from Dr. Canales. I knew from then that I could trust and would only trust, him and his staff with one of my most valuable possessions, myself. Both procedures went flawlessly. From pre-op through post-op, on both occasions were extremely thorough. Anything needed was willingly given and the end results were far better then... more
Dr. Horton is a fantastic surgeon. She performed a breast reconstruction and replaced implants. Through the pre-op process, some questionable cells were discovered. Dr. Horton was reassuring and helped me through that difficult time. I am happy to report that I am incredibly pleased with the results. Thank you for doing such a wonderful job in fixing things up! more
On 2012 I decided to replace my 25 year old implants. He didn't find my breasts to be a challenge, he agreed with the issues that needed to be fix but was super confident that it was something he could achieve without any problems. I also decided to get liposuction on my belly and flanks( I work out really hard, I'm about 5'5" and 118 lbs but after two kids I just cant loose the bulge of those... more
I am 600 cc and i want to do down t 400 cc my PS says i will have to do a lift, ugly. Did your skin contract back? How long did it take? Did they do the removal and then go back on a later date? I have heard of that? I would be willing to go to another PS out of my California area, maybe your Dr.
Thank your thoughtfulness in sharing your experience more
I had 550 cc saline but since I went in for a tummy tuck I decided to get my saline boobs re-done with 800cc silicone. I am happy with the silicone. They look better and there is way less rippling. Was it worth redoing them?? Probably not...but if I had to chose between silicone and saline I would go with silicone.
Also, ( and this is important) if you like the way FAKE boobs look then get... more
