I researched on the web several testimonials and reviews/ratings before scheduling a free consultation with 2 plastic surgeons in the Mpls area. The first consultation which I will not name, was completely sub-par to Dr. Joe G's consultation and experience. I knew right away that Dr. Joe was the surgeon of my choice and I strongly believed he was the most qualified, personable and... more
Finally figured it was time for me. This was not an easy decision, but once I read his book, it all see,Ed pretty clear. Lucky I picked Dr. Joe because his office staff is all so friendly and engaging. He is kind, gentle, not pushy and is an expert in BA. My surgery went smooth. I look back on this as a really great decision, almost necessary! more
I have always had small breasts, and ever since I can remember, it bothered me. Finally, just before my 34th birthday, I decided it was time to take the plunge. I went back and forth for years prior to that, because I have never been any larger than a very small B, and I am a very active person. I enjoy working out, and I was worried that the negative aspects I hear other women speak of when... more
I just wanted to write in and say that I absolutely love my boobs and especially my cleavage! Dr Joe did an amazing job and it looks so natural!
So many people compliment me on how great I look and how perfect my boobs are - and they don't even ask if I've had them done!
I kept them a natural size 300HP Silicone which took me from a 32A to 32D(34C) more
I have been waiting twenty years to have my breast Augmentation. I have had two children and nursed them both. Dr. Joe and his team were amazing to work with and far exceeded my expectations. Everyone involved in this process made me feel comfortable and were always willing to answer all of my questions. I had minimal pain following the procedure and was able to do most everything for... more
After working hard to lose the weight I gained with my second pregnancy, I found myself not even filling an A cup and STILL unhappy with how I looked in swimsuits and dresses. I felt like I had worked so hard and couldn't enjoy the results. I wanted the surgery, but I was worried about how others would react or that it would be a botched procedure. Instead everything was perfect! Dr. Joe was... more
I went for multiple consultations in the Mpls area before going with Dr. Joe. He and his team were the most informative and prioritized my desires above all else! I never felt pressured to go for the more expensive silicone. Instead, Dr. Joe wanted to make sure that he had as much information prior to the surgery to ensure he delivered exactly the image in my head. I had no idea the results... more
I am 2 days away from my dual plane BA. I am having so many feelings. I'm excited and yet nervous. I want everything to go as planned. I picked up my meds and things at the pharmacy and am starting to get things ready. Since I am having the dual plane I won't be lifting my arms above my head much so I have lowered items I normally reach for (such as clothing on a higher rack and my shampoo... more
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've always been in shape but always lacked a chest. After nursing 3 babies for over a year each i wanted to finally have breasts. I did not want a large augmented look so I was hoping for 250-300cc's since I'm pretty petite (114lbs) I ended up with 265 on one side and 286 on the other. Dr leigh gave me exactly what I asked for as far as shape and I literally could not be happier.
I'm now... more
Getting a breast augmentation was the best thing I have ever done for myself. Dr. wilke was amazing. He listened to what I wanted and helped me find a size that balances out my figure. I would do it again In a heart beat! Pain and all. We did 450 CCs on left and 400 CCs on right using the aerola incision . I am 5'1 and 125lbs 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
Dr Smith did more than an amazing job on my implants! I was an A cup (and that was being generous, my bras were all padding and no boob) and I had been ashamed of my strangely conical tiny boobs since I was sixteen and realized they were just never going to grow beyond what they started out with when I was eleven. I never went swimming because bathing suits just looked stupid on my lack of a... 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
My breasts extremely differed in sizes and this is why I decided to go through with breast implants. Dr. Tholen was recommended to me by a coworker. The pros were that I would be able to wear a shirt without having to worry about the size different. The cons was that I was nervous about how the surgery would turn out and but I was thoroughly impressed with Dr. Tholen's work and I'm extremely... more
Hi. I am 32 year woman who is very into health and fitness. I was a size A cup and always somewhat self concious of this. After being on the fence of having a breast augmention for many years, I decided to go for it. I cannot tell you how estatic I am with the results and wish I would have done it years before! Dr. Joe and his staff were amazing, professional, caring - everything you could... more
I was very interested in getting breast augmentation and almost got them at 24 but decided to wait. When I was 31 I researched doctors and found Dr. Joe to be so highly recommenced and qualified; I set up an appointment with him. Knowing he has so much experience, actually created special augmentation surgery techniques and teaches these procedures at medical schools, I knew he was the right... more
I am very pleased with the results of my breast enhancement and the entire experience that I had with MPS. I chose Dr. Tholen to be my surgeon based on his excellent credentials, professionalism, extensive experience, and clinical expertise. Dr. Tholen's practice is structured and based upon current research and technology and his explanation of his practice and procedures is thorough and... more
