One of these days I'm gonna be fine af but until then, I'll be sitting on here with these deflated boobs. :(( I look forward to hearing your stories and seeing your journey. I have no current date set for surgery so I will be reading and gaining knowledge through your stories and your experiences. Cheers! more
I have always been very insecure about my breasts and always wanted a breast enlargement since I was about 17, I finally got enough confidence to do something about it and went to an appointment with MYA. Once I made my decision, everything went quite quickly and I was already having the procedure. I recovered quickly and live my new breasts. Very happy I finally had them done. I don't regret... more
I started researching breast augmentation in 2012, so I have been wanting this for a few years now, but I honestly never thought I'd follow through with it. (I was afraid of the anesthesia, even though I'd had it when I was little). I'm 5'3" and I was always slim growing up, BUT in 2010 I weighed 175lbs (as opposed to 120 now!). My weight gain was primarily due to anti-depressants, so I... more
Dr. Tantillo is simply the best! When booking my appointment for a consultation I was 50/50 about going forward with the procedure, the second I met with him I knew this was something I wanted to do. He was informative, made me feel comfortable with the procedure and answered all my questions thoroughly. My main concern was having natural results and Dr. Tantillo exceeded my expectations! I... more
For 20 years I have wanted implants, but never wanted to ruin my little boobies, because they were kinda pretty. fast forward to 39 years old, mid life, and breast fed 2 kids. I am a small A cup with a large nipple. I've decided that life is too short not to try having the boobs I dreamed about. I am also fighting to stay youthful, and I feel the need to treat myself after having 2 kids! ha!... more
I went for a consultation about 6 months ago and was going to treat myself for my 30th birthday which is January 2016. My plastic surgeons office called this week saying they had a last minute opening in 2 weeks and asked if I wanted the appointment! The dates worked perfectly and I am having my BA in 2 weeks!
When i went for my initial consult a few months back i spoke with Dr. Seckel... more
I loved Dr heins professionalism, experience, honesty and over all procedure was great! Everything came out exactly as we had discussed and couldn't be happier! i had lost a lot of weight and going from an almost D cup to an A cup my breast were very deflated and saggy I had contemplated a lift and an augmentation but after discussing it with dr hein we had gone with the under the muscle... more
I am so thrilled that I had my Breast Augmentation on April 7, 2015. I had been thinking about doing this for more than a decade. As a registered nurse, I carefully researched the plastic surgeons in my area, and I felt confident about the work of Dr. Seckel. At my initial consultation, he made me feel at ease. He helped me to set realistic goals for my procedure (looking natural is... more
I am extremely pleased with my experience with Dr. Seckel & his staff. From my first consultation, to the day of the operation, all of my questions were answered and my mind was at ease. I had done a fair amount of research regarding breast augmentation prior to my surgery and Dr. Seckel knows his stuff and his experience most definitely shows. He is such a kind man who wants to ensure you are... more
I've been on this site for awhile and Ive been reading about people's BA journey. I figured it's time I contribute!
First let me start off by staying that like many of you on realself, I have struggled with whether to undergo surgery voluntarily or not. I've never been under for anything other than my wisdom tooth (yes I only have 1) so this was very scary decision for me. I've never taken... more
Hi ladies :-) I've wanted larger breasts for as long as I can remember. I feel like mine never really fully developed. Anyways, I am 5'6 3/4, 141lbs, and probably a small B cup without padding, but wear a 34C with padding regularly. Since I am financially able I decided to take the plunge! I've researched different doctors and decided on Dr. Seckel in Concord, MA. When I called to book a... more
So, about 4 years ago I had a mini TT, from Dr. E. She did an excellent job, could not be happier with the results, worth every penny. At the same time, I also considered a BA, but of course did not have the money for both. Having 2 c-sections, my stomach bothered me more. So, fast forward a few years, gravity is taking its toll. I had a consultation with Dr. E about a week ago. My BW is 14... more
I always wanted my breast back to the way they were prior to breastfeeding my daughter. They were perky, plump, and feminine. After I had breastfed my daughter I noticed my totally deflated breasts. I hated seeing them in the shower, getting dressed, etc. I researched BA for many years I always made an excuse why I couldn't do it "right now". I turned fourty two years ago and decided that it... more
Growing up I have always been small chested and it ran in my family as well. With that being said I decided to get a breast augmentation. I ended up going with the "gummy bear" or highly cohesive implants since I have been waiting for the FDA to approve this type of implants for years. I am thrilled with my decision! At first I had my doubts but I am glad I went through with it.
The only cons... more
I have always wanted bigger and perkier breasts. Before my ba I was pretty asymmetrical with my left breast larger and drooping more than right. A few years ago I had a consult with a boston plastic surgeon who suggested a peri areola lift with implant. He frowned on any implant in any woman above 250cc. So I sat on that for a few years and the sagging of my breasts progressed. I was referred... more
Hello there! I am a 25 year old graduate student who has been wanting to get a breast augmentation since high school. I've gone back and forth on this decision, never really making any concrete plans. I sometimes struggle with the concept of elective surgery, as both of my parents have had cancer. I was always taught to put health first, and cutting into a perfectly healthy body didn't fit... more
I had breast augmentation and circumferential liposuction of my abdomen with Dr. Darrow about 6 weeks ago. I cannot believe the results. look amazing and couldn't be happier! I had researched and met with 4 Boston area Plastic surgeons and Dr. Darrow was the second one I met with and I should have just stopped right there when I found him. I met with the 2 others I had appointments with and... more
Having cosmetic surgery can be a very intimate, sensitive subject yet Dr. Doherty has a way to keep you totally at ease. He explains his recommendations and answers any questions, double checking to make sure you understand. He is totally approachable, easy to talk to and has a great sense of humor. It's so refreshing to have a down to earth doctor that can still be a perfectionist. As a... more
I was really unhappy with the deflation look breastfeeding left me with. Dr. Seckel did an AMAZING job to bring them back to life! He was very informative, kind and helpful through the whole process. He was also very realistic with the outcome, and guided me in the right direction, talking me out of a bigger size, and I am so thankful for that! I am just a few weeks post op and I already... more
I was so nervous with the initial consultation and Dr. Christopher Davidson and his nurse were so great...and very funny. They made me feel so comfortable and answered all of my questions. Dr. Davidson was very responsive and attentive after the surgery and was always available to answer my questions. My breasts are perfect and I am so happy with the result! more
