Well, maybe not the oldest, but close. I got them in 1981 at the age of 21 from another surgeon (not sure Dr. Chappell was even born then?), so they were almost 33 years old. They had ruptured and I experienced capsular contraction later in their lifespan so I was very self-conscious of their shape and location, especially the right one which was painful too. After removal and replacement with... more
It is 17 years after my initial breast augmentation and they still look awesome! Two children later, I breast feed, worked out, did everything and they still look great. The only reason I am having them done again is to go bigger this time. Best decision 17 years ago and look forward to the next one! Dr. Widder is very thorough and talks you through your decision and the process.
I had 525... more
I wanted to get an expert opinion on what I should do. I got 300cc silicone implants placed under the muscle 3 years ago. About a year after the procedure I noticed that the implant was sitting lower than it should and when flexed created a ripple. I've read previous reviews on this and am asking the surgeon to convert to a split muscle technique. I hope he knows about this. My other concern... more
In 30 days I will be going in for an implant exchange, I'm very excited! I love my surgeon and have had amazing results. Some may think the size I want is too big but I get lean since I decided to compete. I want a fuller look on stage and this size is likely going to be exactly what I want. Plus I am not a huge fan of saline, you see ripples on me.it's 28 days now! Hurry up!! more

My second revision in two years was really ugly. (the first revision gave me symmastia, the second revision gave me pain and was not "pretty") I stress the first two revisions were NOT by Dr Schreiber, but by "top rated" board certified, experienced plastic surgeons. I was also in pain for one year until Dr Schreiber finally did the revision correctly.
Just in... more
I sought breast augmentation surgery because I have lived my life with very small breasts. I missed the curves I had during and after my pregnancies.
I am interested in getting a breast revision to switch to silicone gel. I am tall and thin and have modest 350cc HP saline implants. I would like to stay in the same size range, but decrease the projection a bit as well as widen the diameter... more
