I am 5'9" 135lbs 27yr old mom of two. I decided to get 400cc textured mentor silicone implants done transaxillary. I am currently just over 2 weeks post op. I am beyond happy with my results other than my incisions. My dr. Said it doesn't happen often but my incisions have split and they are disgusting! He said they should heal on their own but I have to be extra careful of my arm movement.... more
The entire experience was amazing. I had never been under anestisia or had any major surgery so I was going in without any clue how my body would react, but I was very well informed and prepared by Dr. Kunkel.
Consultation- I was explained absolutely everything in terms i could understand. His office provides 3D vector imaging which is AMAZING!! This is a huge bonus. This takes your exact... more
I had breast implants but they started getting hard which caused them to not look even. I also wanted to get larger implants. I liked the size I looked with a bra on, but I wanted that fullness when not wearing a bra. Dr. Kunkel listened to everything I said & he gave me exactly what I wanted! Very happy! There were no surprises. He told me I wouldn't like the drains & I didn't . My surgery... more
Dr. Whetstone did a great job explaining the procedure, he has a very good bedside manner which made me feel at east. I am asian, very thin skin, little to no breast tissue or fat around my chest, and I had a fibroadenoma the size of a grapefruit. I am an RN and was well aware of complications and my risks of looking unnatural due to my body type, and fibroadenoma. However I researched for... more
I was referred to Dr. Camp by a previous patient. I wanted breast implants and consulted about a possible lift. He spent 2 hours with me and we talked about all the possibilities. After a thorough physical exam he advised breast implants to fill breast cavity and no lift. He feels I will get my desired outcome without the additional surgery/scars that a lift would add. I was scared and had so... more
I'm 25 and I had been living a double life you could say. Ever since I was in junior high I have been padding my bras to hide the fact that I was a late bloomer. Well now I knew I just wasn't a bloomer at all... So eventually I found chicken cutlets, pretty much a slab of silicone that I slide into my bras. Just to go swimming I had to take them out and place them in my swim top and pray... more
I have 2 kids and breast fed them so I was not happy with the changes in my breast. They had no fullness or cleavage. I had been thinking about getting implants for awhile and my husband offered to pay for them as a birthday present this year. My experience has been great and I am so happy with my results so far. I started as a 34 B and am now a 34C (full C). They are very proportional to... more
After having a daughter prematurely & using an industrial strength pump on the breasts it was time for a redo. I debated for a yr & a half & finally went through with it. I was tired of the rock hard, scar tissue, & capsular contraction. I've been in quite a bit of pain & feel like an elephant is on my chest.
I'll post before and after photos as I go a long. Today is post op day 3 and I have... more
So tomorrow is my consultation. Wow. I am feel like I have already waited so long for this moment.
I specifically remember, as an 11year old girl, waking up Christmas morning and feeling the first small handful of my breasts. I was so thrilled. I just knew I was in my way to becoming a woman. All I had to do was wait until they grew large enough for a bra. Unfortunately, that day never came.... more
I had never though about getting breast implants until after I had a baby and breast fed for awhile. My boobs looked like deflated balloons with stretch marks! I was still the same size as I was pre-pregnancy, 34B, but they looked completely different. I went to see Dr. Lavine in Fort Worth in April. Everyone was so kind and understanding. It was not at all awkward like I thought it would... more

I once had boobs....Then I weighed 225 pounds, and something kicked in around my senior year of high school and I lost 75 pounds!! The healthy way, eat right, eat less, and EXCERCISE!!! Sorry I don't have a get skinny quick scheme that has lasting results. Lol. So since the summer after high school I have been obsessing over having boobs. Nothing... more
I am so excited about my upcoming surgery! I had my final Preop with my doctor and it is just so awesome. I really, really like him. He takes time to listen and explain everything...plus, I got his name from RealSelf!
I am 5'5", 140 pounds. I have an active life being in the school system and with three boys. I am doing this surgery on my spring break and hoping to be able to attend... more
The day of the surgery was seamless. After checking in and being admitted, Dr. Habash took some measurements, introduced me to my anesthesiologist and informed me about all post-op procedures. The procedure took about two and a half hours. After the surgery I woke up in the recovery room and was greeted by my husband, my mother and of course Dr. Habash. He assured me that I would start to feel... more
I am a wife, a mom, and work a full time job. I am sure my story begins like so many other women out there. I had really never had a 'problem' with my breasts, and didn't mind the size/ shape of them. After I stopped breast feeding, I was pretty much back to my pre pregnancy body, but there are things that are out of your control when it comes to your body after pregnancy and breastfeeding.... more
So I'm a 28yr old mother of 2 who never really developed. Ive been thinking about breast implants since I was 14. I even took up a "boob fund" in high school. Its been a constant struggle as a woman to always need a padded bra, inserts for bikinis, and never ever being able to wear anything backless. I don't need to tell you all about the blows to self confidence and the jealousy towards big... more
Hello! I have really enjoyed reading reviews on here for the last couple of months. So, now that I have scheduled my BA, I thought I would share my story. :-)
I am 38yrs old with two teen daughters (that I breastfed). I have said since they were toddlers that I wanted to get a "boob job" to fix what breast feeding did to me. When I turned 30 I got a tattoo and decided that I would get... more
Hi everyone I am in need of some opinions!
I am 18, almost 19 and have been considering breast implants for quite sometime. I am a 32A/Small B currently, 5'2'', and 111 pounds. I have met with my plastic surgeon and discussed lots of sizes and I went with putting in a 500cc behind the muscle. He told me that it will lose 25cc so I will be a 475cc. I liked the size when I tried it on. He... more
I am 5'5, 135 lbs and 31 years old. I am a mother of two boys and have married 6 years. I'm a very modest person and have always been very insecure about my breast! I didn't even breast feed my babies, just not something I wanted to do. So I can't blame my little boobs on that. I'm a 32A and barely that!! They are nice but just too small. I've wanted breast implants for... more
Aging causes sagging witch is not pretty! I had a breast lift, implants and a mini-tuck.
I wanted to mention that I had almost NO bruising at all. I had slight (very slight) bruising on my right hip. I truly believe that was the result of Dr. R's skill. more
After nursing 2 children, i wanted to get my breast look back, but didnt want to be 'cartoon' looking either. I am very happy with my results after BA surgery. Love the results and have not had any issues. The doctor and staff were excellent. I look so natural and just have such great confidence to be in a bathing suit again! more
