I had Breast Augmentation surgery Feb 2013. I must say that I was thoroughly pleased with the quality of work from Dr. Schlesinger. In Feb 2014, about 2 days after my 1 year mark, I took an APFT for the army, which I had done several prior to my incident. My right breast became encapsulated due to me straining my pectoral muscle. My breast became hard, and had raised higher in my chest. Pain... more
I'm 29 and 4 years ago, I got 350 cc saline implants. First of all, Do Not get Saline. I don't care if they look better, they just feel super fake, two water balloons to be exact.
But beside that, my main problem was the way it looked... so imagine two water balloons shaped very weird and no cleavage at all since they were very much apart, almost down to my armpits.
I got a revision on June... more
My first BA was performed 12 yrs ago. I had two kids and breast fed both, searched for help to put my breast back to a womanly shape, technology was not as good as it is now so I wasn't able to have much access to reviews and other peoples comments. My consultation went well and the surgeon seemed experienced and caring. Wish I could view comments back then, Anyway I had a BA with a lift in... more
I had my first implants done in FL on 7/2013 I complained about pain in my left breast after only a week and the doctor kept telling me it was nerves and it would go away just keep massaging also said that's why my left was not dropping. I didn't believe it I felt like something was wrong and he didn't want to own up to it but what do you do. So I kept going back and telling him over and over... more
Flew to Cali from Hawaii for a breast augmentation with a very popular Beverly Hills surgeon. It was my first cosmetic procedure so I did my research. My original surgeon was very experienced (or so I thought!), appeared in multiple tv shows (including Dr Oz), and had several credentials. Long story short, it was a horrible experience. I was bedridden for a week and the incisions didn't heal... more
Within a few years of getting breast implants I regretted having the surgery. The left breast is and always has been taught and painful during intimacy. I have to "protect" it from compression and movement.
I have had the implants for 40 years and within that time frame I spoke to a couple of doctors about their removal however, neither doctor could help me. Removing and replacing... more
Extremely happy w/ my new breasts! I now have breasts that look & feel super natural and "full looking" in all the right places. I went from looking like someone who had implants done to someone who just looks great.
My surgery was a breeze. Very little post op pain, very little swelling too. No narcotics needed...amazingly, just extra strength Tylenol did the trick. So not... more
I just had a breast revision on 11/9/2012, due to a capsular contracture on left breast. Day 4 and I feel great! They look great!
Always had scar tissue build up on left breast. PS would squeeze the heck out of popping it, making it feel nice a soft again...till it got firm again. Got tired of doing this over and over again.
Had saline implants from 2000. Decided to switch them to... more
Feb.29th 2012 I had my breast aug. I was very happy with them due to my breast were uneven from nursing my three little boys. Once my breast healed I noticed my left was a little smaller then my right and it bothered me so much because i really wanted my breast as even as possible. Talked to dr over the months and he asked I wait for my 3 month post op. I did & I was still sure I wanted to... more
I recently had Dr. Schlesinger replace my 8 year old saline implants with high profile silicone implants of the same size. I am thrilled with the results! They are the perfect size for my body frame and feel totally natural, with very minimal scarring. I am comfortable in my clothes and out of my clothes. more
