I was very happy to find a female physician with an all female staff. I was very comfortable from the initial consultation through my after care. All of my questions were answered until I was 100% comfortable scheduling my procedure. The pain management was also explained very well and that was a large concern for me. I am 100% happy with the out come! I woke up smiling in the recovery... more
5 days Pre-Op!!! Nervous, but so excited. Can't believe its so close to surgery day. I have never had boobs bigger than an A cup, even when breast feeding! I have contemplated this since I was 18 years old when I figured out I was never going to blossom any more than that. I'm nervous about final results but feel ready!!!
I forgot to mention i am doing 325cc's round, smooth, mod plus... more
I had always had a small chest (size A cup), and even though I am 5'8 I had always been ok with it. Prior to becoming pregnant with my first child my weight was at 155, I then got up to 230 and my cup size changed to an E. After I quit breast feeding my cup went to a B, but I was left with loose skin and sagging tissue. I decided then, once I was done having children, that I was going to work... more
I am 28 yrs old active with no children. After a miscarriage 4 years ago my breast had expanded so quickly I was left with empty "bags" instead of breast. One of the most depressing parts about it was how nice my cleavage was prior to the miscarriage.
After years of research and waiting I finally have the time to go ahead and proceed with a breast augmentation. I decided to add a... more
Before I had children, my breasts were a comfortable 32D. Now after 3 children they have left me, and I would be at a small 32A if not a 32AA. (Depends on bra brand) I have been researching breast augmentation surgery for the last 3 years now, but it wasn't until 3 weeks ago that I really had that moment where I absolutely KNEW I was getting it done. I made a few consultation appointments. 3... more
I'll post more soon, including pics. I am 6 hours post-op, propped up in bed and in some discomfort, so I'll keep it short.
Reading reviews, Q&A, etc on this site was very helpful to me, so thought I'd return the favor.
Here are the basics: 34AA pre-op, 5'8", 120 pounds, slim build. I have pretty much wanted implants since my early 20's. It took me that long to finally go through with it.... more
I went to two consults, one in my home town and another in Ohio. I have chosen to have my BA done by Dr Donaldson in Columbus OH, that is a 3 1/2 hour drive so I have made arrangements for a sitter and a driver. I have family there so no need for a hotel. The surgical center does offer one night free in a hotel for those driving over 50 miles.
Dr Donaldson suggest a mini lift done through the... more

After baby #1 I worked out and got my body back in shape around 2007-2009..I was still early 20's so my boobs were not too bad but had shrunk back so a small c. After baby #2 breastfead... more
Im new and this will be mu first blog.
Im 30 years old with one child (2yrs old) and for many years i have wanted to change my breast but felt i didnt have a good enough reason. But after the birth of my son the urge has become more and more apparent. At the moment i THINK i am a size 32 C/D. I say this because i am actually not sure of my breast size. My breast have become very deflated and... more

Implant size: 350cc's
Before breast measurement: 30A

Before my procedure I was nearly flat-chested. I had gained a lot of weight, then lost it all very quickly. I lost a total of 46 lbs after healing from a knee injury. My breasts looked like I had nursed a child! At only age 26 I couldn't... more
Dr Chris is simply one of a kind. She truly cares about her patients and they're well being both physically and emotionally. I feel privileged that I got to be her patient and her staff is no different. I would recommend the Sullivan centre to anyone thinking about plastic surgery. Breast augmentation is a major surgery. You will need a Doctor with an exceptional staff to get through the... more
I am very pleased with my decision to have a breast enhancement. I was a very small A with all the volume in the bottom of my breast (below the nipple) and felt very self-conscious, especially in bathing suits. I have a petite frame 5'1 107 lbs so I didn't want to go too large, but I wanted my clothes to fit better and to fell confident in a bathing suit.
I went to several consultations... more
I finally took the plunge after feeling flat for the past 20 years. My nipples no longer are introverted either. I'm amazed the difference in size without any stretch marks or loss of sensation. I have an athletic body with low body fat and have been concerned about the size at times but I think my surgeon really knew how to match the cc and shape to the picture I showed her for my goal. I can... more
Hey ya'll! Wednesday I had my first consultation. It was everything Ih
had hoped for and more. I have been wanting beast implants for about 8 years. I'm 22, barely an A cup. I'm glad I waited so I can get the silicon gel implants. I have always been jealous of all my friends and even my younger sisters friends cause they had boobs and I didn't. But I will soon! My surgery date is scheduled... more
The staff was very informative throughout the process. All my questions were answered and they were all very friendly. Surgery day went very smooth and I was very comfortable. The staff called periodically after the procedure to check up on me and in between follow ups. The results are good, they are very balanced and feel more natural than I was expecting as I opted for silicone over saline... more
I have wanted breast implants since I was 18 and I have finally decided to do it. I am 31, mother of 3. Currently 34A or small B. Getting 350CC saline under the muscle. My first appointment went really well. Dr answered all questions before I even asked him. I felt very comfortable with him. I also know another person who went to him that I am somewhat close to. I have a couple other people... more
I've taken a long time to decide whether to do this or not. I've spent days and months reading and asking friends and reading websites which have all helped. 2 weeks ago I finally felt comfortable about going for the augmentation and have chosen a surgeon with a good track record and one I felt comfortable with when I had my consultation. I've got another consultation with another surgeon just... more
My family is blessed with beautiful, well endowed women, all except me. For years I was told that "my boobies would come when I have childeren" That didn't happen for me. I had spent my youth wishing and stuffing and praying for things to change. As I aged, I traded tissues for "falsies" Always concerned that one would fall out, much too much worry had been placed on looking "normal". At 44 I... more
I had always dealt with abnormal shaped and asymmetrical breasts. I am now the mother of 3 and it was time to finally take care of this for myself. After consultation with Dr. T, I went with silicone unders (550cc and 600cc - to deal with my asymmetry). I felt great even on the way home from surgery. Being able to go into any store and find bras, ones that do not need to hold their shape on... more
I am 6 days postop and my follow up appointment isn't until tomorrow (monday). My concern once I got home was that my PS used to completely different size implants. I told him I wanted to be a small D. When I got home I realized that one breast looked larger than the other. After looking at my paperwork, I saw that he used 325cc on the left and 450cc on the right.
I called the office... more
