In 2001, I found out I had an aggressive type of breast cancer (two, in fact) on my left breast. I had a mastectomy with reconstruction with a gel implant performed by Dr. Mary Gingrass. I had never met her before, so I basically took the word of my other doctors as far as a referral. We discussed what type to have done as well as the type of implant to use, and I trusted in her completely.... more
Well I thought that I had written my initial review already but I guess it didn't go through. I am very excited because I just met with my doctor today so the process is moving right along. I have been living with heavy breast since I was 15. I have the indented shoulders, raw skin underneath the breast and at the breast crease. I have the back pain, spasms and just the heavy weight of my... more

I am extremely pleased with my results and know that I will be glad that I had a breast... more
I've been needing to get this done for quite some time but now its time to stop being so chicken and go for it. All my life I've had big boobs and as I've gotten older gravity is taken its toll so its time for me to get these ladies rejuvenated!!! I'm so tired of the back problems and the spilling out the sides, ugh and the XL shirts so I went to see my PCP and he stated that he'd give me a... more
My surgery was just yesterday so I am not sure how I like the result (haven't seen them yet), but already feel so much lighter. My girls were 36G and that was from bras that were fitted 2 years ago and the underwire had stopped going between so probably was even larger. I wanted to go to a 36B but my surgeon said it was probably going to be a 36C so he didn't have to mess with the nerves or... more

My journey started with a trip to my Primay Care physician for a regular check up and she... more
