I am a 17 year old teen mom to a wonderful 1 year old son. i breastfed my son as long as he wanted too with no regrets. I am just unsatisfied with the outcome of my breasts. I have to wear a 36D bra, with no padding or else my nipple will fly out. When I don't wear a bra, my breast sag with areoles point down. I couldn't be more embarrassed. I do want more child in the future, but I am just... more
Dr Joe continues to amazes me! I had breast augmentation 5 years ago, the lift still makes me smile everyday! Not only is Dr Joe a talented and thorough Dr, he is a wonderful person! His bedside manner is kind, warm and understanding. He takes pride in his work and cares how I feel about it as well.

With aging and gaining weight, my breast had become very large (Double E’s) and I had a large amount of sagging. I had implants and a lot of natural tissue. My breast were also very asymmetrical prior to implants 10 years earlier. I wanted to return to a size D, which would require a breast reduction, lift and implant replacements. It was a complicated surgery due to the uneven amount... more
I approached Dr. Mesna for a liposuction but ultimately decided to add a lift to the procedure. Dr. Mesna was very patient with me and took the time to answer all questions. He was very personable, with great bed side manners. I ended up changing my mind a few time before I settled on the final procedures - cost was a huge factor for me. I believe Dr. Mesna's fees are reasonable for the... more
I had gastric bypass surgery 10 yrs ago and lost 150lbs. Dr Gervais removed 7lbs of skin in 2007 from my midsection, and I love my flat tummy. Now for the rest of me, my breasts sag so bad my teenage daughter refers to them as my boob belt! I will be getting breast and arm lift on the 10th, and on the 17th skin removed vertically by extension of gastric bypass scar, and de-bulking of thighs in... more
I had moderate to severe ptosis due to weight loss. I had a breast lift and moderate augmentation to edit the shape of my breast. Dr. Tholen uses wonderful modern surgical equipment, so my procedure allowed me to be in and out in one day and the anesthesia did not make me nauseous, which it usually does. I am healing well due to the excellent instructions and follow up care Dr. Tholen provided. more

I can't believe it, but I am now scheduled for my breast lift with augmentation for July 9! I have been thinking about it for the past year, and needed to convince my hubby that this was something I really wanted as he didn't think it was necessary. I knew I couldn't go ahead with it w/o his support, as he is the only person that knows about it. Unfortunately I cannot share this with my... more
I'm having a mommy makeover on Friday! I am mom of four beautiful children and my body needs help. I work out religiously. I'm a runner, but you'd never know it to look out my saggy and lack of tone body. I am 5'4", 123 lbs., I wear a 32/34D in most bras. I am having saline implants 390ccs each. I'm pretty sure I'll be happy with that size as I'm not really... more
