I am beyond impressed with Dr. Gervais and the entire staff. I have been interested in getting breast augmentation for over 10 years and I am so happy I finally did. I was nervous the day of surgery but it that was short lived. Dr. Gervais, anesthesiologist, and nursing staff made me feel very comfortable. At this point I wonder why I waited so long to have this procedure. My experience post... more
I am excited beyond words, because my BA is scheduled for May 12th, 2015!!! A little about me first off; I am a 32-year old, single gal who has never had children. I am 5'4", 142lbs, and what I would consider very athletic. My area of expertise is heavy weight lifting (e.g. currently squatting 5x5 @ 190lbs, deadlifting 1x5 @ 240lbs), with a little low-impact cardio mixed in for good measure... more
I gained and lost 50 lbs and breastfed babies 4 times. After my fourth my husband asked if there was something I wanted, like a push present. I said boobs!!! After some convincing he said yes:) I chose dr tholen at minneapolis plastic surgery because he is a board certified surgeon with great reviews
I'm currently 6 weeks post op with 650 hp silicone Implants. I can finally say I love them.... more
After having 2 kids and losing weight, I had very little breast tissue. I decided to get implants to improve my overall self esteem. Overall, everything went well and to date, I have not had any complications. I look and feel better in clothes and no longer have to buy padded bras to give the appearance of having breasts. The only issue I have had is adjusting to the size as they are ended... more
I am 28 yrs old (was a 34A or small B), 5'3'', 120lbs practicing law in Minnesota, but I love traveling to warm climates with my guy and spending weekends in the summer on the water. I wanted to wear swimsuits w/o pads and sexy dresses, but I also did not want to look unnatural or for my bust to distract from my professional work in the office or in a courtroom. I am also quite risk averse, so... more
I've never been very blessed with boobs (I was usually about a 34A), but after nursing 3 kids, there was nothing left! I'd always thought about getting a BA, and now that we were done having kids, I decided it was the right time. After much research, we decided on Dr. Tholen. As he seemed very experienced and had great reviews. I booked a consult and surgery on the same day, as we were coming... more
I decided to get breast implants mostly due to the fact that over the last few years I have lost a lot of volume in my breast tissue. I didn't have much to begin with, and now was starting to feel like I need more to fill out my clothes, swim suits. I am only 30 and have never had kids..... and I wanted to look that way! more
I am very excited for my new boobs! I have wanted them since I was a teenager. My breasts are A/B with slight constriction.
My PS is using local anesthetic and nitrous gas. Anyone have experience with this? Seems a lot of the side effects I'm reading about are related to general anesthesia. The nurse even told me I should eat a big meal before the surgery!
Also wondering how long it will be... more
I have always loved and wanted nice perky big but not too big breasts! In high school and before babies I had a nice full B cup. Smaller than I liked, but they could be pushed up nicely in bras, I felt feminine in swim suits. They obviously got huge with both pregnancies and I just loved it! They went back to normal size after my first daughter, she nursed for 9 months. After my second... more
I recently got breast implants and reconstructive surgery on my nipples, I have 4 children and nursed them all during that stage of my life. One of my children wouldn't nurse from me but, I was determined that she get my milk so I pumped and fed her 10+ times a day for 3 months. Well, this resulted in depleting me down to a breast size of Triple A and my nipple were extremely stretched out... more
5'8 105lbs went from 32a to 32dd VS! Love my new boobs!! I've had my babies so now I decided to do something for myself. Researched Dr's and different implants for a few months, went to one consult, and booked my surgery that day! I was super nervous day of surgery but everything went great! Anesthesia makes me a little moody so I was balling when I woke up, (totally don't remember that tho)... more
I've thought about having this done for about 10 years, after pregnancy and breastfeeding changed my shape dramatically. I've cancelled the surgery two times, got totally freaked out. But I seriously can't stand my breasts anymore. With clothes, fine, naked or in a swimsuit or sports bra, forget about it. Very depressing. So depressing in fact I'm not posting my side profile, I look like an... more
After nearly three years total worth of nursing, my 34D breasts had pancaked. Once scooped up into a bra, I could sort of fill one out... but without a bra they were starting to look like pastry bags. Dr. Joe described the Dual Plane method whereby the existing breast tissue is free to rise up atop the implant and sit in perky position. I had the Dual Plane procedure done on a Friday and was... more
Since I was in high school I desired boobs since I was barely able to fill out a 32 AA. I saved for years knowing that I wanted to get one done. Finally when I was 24 I pulled the trigger and started looking for a doctor. A lot of my friends had them done, so I received referrals from them and went to all the doctors they went to. Finally I decided on Dr. Joe. I chose him because out of all... more
I am 35 years old and had always had small breasts my entire life. On top of that my Left breast was about 2-3 inches lower than my right and they were never round. I called them droopy boobs. Dr. Joe, Fixed them Perfect! I love them. I had a Dual Pane Breast Augmentation-With Saline implants. I wouldn't Change a thing! Seriously Painless- I went shopping the day after surgery, and was not... more
I've been wanting to have a breast augmentation since I was 15 years old. My also-flat-best friend and I made a pact that we would save up and get boobs when we turned 18. Well 18 came and went and it wasn't an option at the time with getting through school. Finally at 26 years old, the BFF broke and got hers done. I waited a bit to follow her experience and see if she survived the ordeal. She... more
I have always wished to get breast implants ever since I was younger. I have very small breasts. I am leaning towards silicone 375cc and inframmatory incision. I want a small incision obviously and I know that saline will provide that. I've just seen some rippled saline jobs that scare me. I'm honestly up in the air still tho. I have another consultation to go to before I actually pay in full... more
I had my first child at 17. I am now 32, and have birthed and nursed 6 children. When you are giving and giving of yourself and your body for 14 years, you start to lose yourself and your confidence. You start to feel like a machine, and you feel less and less like a woman.
My breasts were sad and deflated, kind of like my body image. I tried to be comfortable with my chest, but I knew deep... more
I'm a 5'9", 145 lb woman who has been stuck with 34B breasts since I was 18. I had children when I was 20 and 21; breastfeeding left my breasts hallow and not nearly as exciting as I wanted them to be. Recently, my husband and I have had some issues conceiving and it has left us both exhausted. I decided that it was time to put up or shut up and thought that some nice, big boobies would be... more
My obsession with boobs started at the age that I should've been growing them myself. My childhood best friend had a C cup in elementary school, so naturally I felt insecure. As I grew older and watched pretty much everyone around me get their boobs, I felt like a freak because I had nothing. So, needless to say, I have been researching and wanting my breasts done since then!
I am now 29 and... more
