I was over looking top heavy from my d cup on my 105 pound, 5ft frame. I made the decision to have my implants out and couldn't be happier. Dr. Cohen was awesome and gave me the self assurance I needed and his staff were just as amazing. The location is gorgeous, clean and out of all the places I've been for surgery, it was no question that this was the place for me! more
I've always been a A cup and wanted fuller breasts to even out my back side, fill out a bikini top. I have 2 kids that I breastfed but am lucky enough to not have a lot of sagging. This is probably more due to the extra weight I've put on over the years. I am 5'2" , 146lbs. I lost 10 lbs prior to the surgery. Losing weight felt great but being more active feels even better.
Let me... more
Had breast augmentation done in August 2008. On day of appointment (at Laurel Regional) Dr Person was 45 minutes late. When he finally arrived his WHOLE family was waiting in the waiting room with my husband. They were leaving on vacation directly after. When I came to I never saw Dr Person he had already left. Had horrible time healing. When I finally was finally able to do my follow up with... more
I've been thinking about breast augmentation on and off since I was 18 and finally decided to go through with it. I had a consult with Dr. Chang in January. Dr. Chang recommended under the muscle silicone moderate plus, and between 250cc and 350cc based on my body size. I decided on 300cc but spent a lot of time on RealSelf looking at pictures and eventually went back into the office to try... more
So I'll start off with my stats: 5'5" 125lbs. My PS is Dr. Cohen at Belecara. I've already had my pre-op and went over everything. The staff there is amazing and very thorough. I was first going to go with 250cc cause I wanted something natural but "noticeable and not noticeable" at the same time. We did the 3D image and I decided to go with the 275cc. When I went to my pre-op I was able to... more
Today is the day for my surgery. I have been waiting for a while to do this for ME. Don't feel guilty, ladies. Especially if you are a mother who's body was transformed my having children. Spend a lot of time with your sizers. The longer you walk around with them like they are part of your body, they tend to start looking smaller. I went to a board certified plastic surgeon with a... more
Dr. Markmann is a fantastic Doctor/Surgeon. During our consultations and pre-op, he was very professional and had a great attitude, and a very calm, laid-back nature about him which I really liked. The surgery went well, he answers phone calls immediately, and he was always very helpful with answering my questions.
I only have one issue, and this was post-surgery. When I showed up for my... more
I've been wanting implants since I was 16 years old and learned my mother had them. I just thought puberty was being slow with me. I've always been a 32 AA except for when I'm nursing and then I'm a 34 B. I went and tried on different sized implants and thought I want 400 CCs but after showing pictures of me with the sizers to friends and family I dec to go up to 450. I chose cohesive... more
He was so professional, patient and answered every question I had ( i asked a million). He called to check on me after surgery. The surgery didn't hurt at all. His work is so amazing. Everything looks so natural and perfect. The best decision ever. Pick him. He's an artist. I can't stop looking in the mirror!
3 days have passed and I'm feeling better. Took the wrapping off my breat and they... more
I am one day post opp. I was a 32 A and wanted to at least go to a C cup and have fuller breasts. Because I have a small frame 5'5, 125 lbs my doctor reccomended 280 CC's. I also do not have children yet and wanted to take that into consideration since my breasts will grow even more one day. Not 100 percent sure how I feel about them yet. They look very natural which is great but wondering if... more
I am impressed with everyone and everything Belecara has to offer. From the first day I entered, I was greeted by friendly faces and knowledgeable doctors. Dr. Cohen was not the first doc I talked with about having my augmentation but he was the last doctor I knew I would be talking to. After talking to him I felt completely comfortable and confident that I would be getting the look I forever... more
My first surgery from Dr. Benjamin was in 1992 when he reconstructed my badly damaged hand that was lacerated from an accident. The outcome was amazing! In 2005, I decided to have breast augmentation. I was so pleased with the results that, when my daughter wanted her breast done, I brought her to Dr. Benjamin in 2007. Again, he did an AMAZING job. The most recent procedure in our family was... more
I wanted shape, but not huge implants. I ended up getting 275cc's. I let my dr decide which to use during the surgery- he had all sizes there. I didn't have to pre-order them. I have a smaller frame, but wanted to have shape. So far, so good! It was a great experience overall, now in the healing process!
Because I remembered to take my pain med (Vicodin) before I went to sleep, my sleep... more
After having and breastfeeding two kids I felt like my breast had lost all of their volume. I knew that I wanted a breast augmentation following my first son but waiting until I was done having kids. I wanted to fill in what I had lost and go slightly bigger. The goal was to have natural looking breasts for my size. I defiantly feel like that was achieved! They are exactly what I wanted;... more
Dr. Vela performed a Breast Augmentation on me a few weeks ago, and I couldn't be happier with the results! I have always been hesitant about the surgery; however, Dr. Vela answered all my questions and concerns and made me feel so comfortable about my decision to get surgery. I wouldn't go to any other surgeon! Dr. Vela and his office staff are the best. The environment is very pleasant and... more
Dr. Schuster and his staff were professional, friendly and accommodating. The scheduling coordinator worked with me getting the financing and scheduling to meet my busy schedule. Dr. Schuster responded more then once to my concerns after the surgery and on a weekend. The whole experience was wonderful. more
I wanted to have breast augmentation to look and feel better. I spent many years buying padded bras that didn't fit properly and being afraid to wear a bathing suit. I chose Dr. Schreiber because he was patient, thorough and reassuring during the initial consultation. I was nervous about the surgical procedure itself but I would say that it was definitely worth it. more
It's been almost 2 weeks, I'm so happy that I went through with it finally, wish that I had it done 20 years ago. I can't say enough about my surgeon, not only is he highly qualified, but a true artist in his profession. It's very important to be informed as a patient, but doing the research will take time, but not doing so is far worse. My journey led me to Dr. Fady Sinno, who is one of... more
I a petite 32 year old mom of a 7 year old and a 21 month old. Before kids I had perky full B cups and was very happy with what I had. But after getting pregnant with baby #1 I ballooned up to a D cup with pregnancy and breastfeeding. Needless to say the bigger they are the harder they fall! after nursing #1 for 14 months, I shrunk down to a shriveled A cup. Now 7 years later and one more... more
