Two months ago i went to my PCM and explain to him all my discomfort including the fact... more

I was an early bloomer and had fairly full breasts by the age of 13. By the time that I graduated high school, I was wearing a size 36DD bra. I've always had a slight frame and so I looked like I might tip over. I did everything that I could to hide them. I wore compression sports bras and very loose fitting tops. I had a difficult time with athletics due to the amount of weight that I was... more
Whenever I need something I always look at "3" of whatever it is I need & then pick the best. I'll get 3 estimates for house & car repairs, plumbers and even doctors. "Take Shape" was the 1st place I went to out of my 3, to see about having my 44/46 G/H breast reducted because of neck & shoulder problems & a great deal of pain.
I had a consultation with Dr. Low & was surprised by his... more
My breast has that lift I was looking for. Dr. Shuster was patient, informative, and caring throughout the process. He also recommended that I do a revision one year out to remove more tissue. Great experience and I wish I had done it way sooner. The benefits and improved self-esteem outweighs the minimum scars acquired from the surgery. Over time it kind of felt like my breast grew back... more
I was a out of town patient, flighting in for a 5 day vacation with friends in family. Dr. Salama staff arranged for me to fit in a extremely booked schedule where I was able to take care of business and still enjoy my vacation! The staff was amazing they send me everything in advance to make sure my health was in good shape before i had my procedure. I met with the staff and Dr. Salama the... more
Dr. Messa did such an incredible job. I had very little pain if any at all from the breast reduction and after about a week, my tummy tuck results were apparent and I couldn't have been more pleased. The most uncomfortable part was the drains believe it or not, but they are removed within 7-10 days after, so it is a short amount of time to wait for the most amazing bodily transformation. more

My experience with Dr. Masri was EXCELLENT to say the least. I had a medically necessary breast reduction and liposuction on my back. I was experiencing back pain due to large breasts and I never thought that I could have surgery and my insurance would cover it. After calling a few cosmetic surgeons, I was referred to Dr. Masri's office. I went in for a free consultation and he told me... more

I have been considering having my breasts reduced for about 10 years now. I have always been told to wait until after I'd had my first child. My son will be 2 in 2 weeks and my surgery is scheduled 4 weeks from today. While I am super excited about getting rid of my 38 DDD's, I am a little worried about how my tummy will look afterward. Insurance is covering my breasts and I couldn't afford to... more

Hi everyone, I am very active in the BBL forum. I am scheduled for that procedure Feb 19 2013 with Dra Yily de los Santos. Ideally I would've liked to have gotten all the work done by one doc at one time, but I am choosing quality over quantity. While looking for the right BBL surgeon (this will be my first surgery ever), I fell in love with Dr Azurin's work. I think his breast work and TT's... more
I'm petite and I have chronic back, neck and shoulder pain that effects my work, especially with large breasts. The breast reduction surgery has reduced the size and weight...reducing the pressure from bra straps, etc. And as a bonus, it has also improved my posture at work! So happy I had the procedure. more
I've had extremely large breast since the age of 12 which essentially scarred my developing self- esteem. I was constantly compared to Dolly Parton by both my female and male peers since big breasts and breast implants were nit the rave for non-celebrities (lol)! This comparison made me feel very uncomfortable because on the flip-side, it seemed to invite the unwanted sexual advances and... more
