I saw 2 other surgeons before meeting Dr Ortegon and his staff, and I am glad I did. He and is office staff are very accommodating pre and post operation. They use Vectra 3D to show a real view of what you'll look like post op which helped me realize what size I preferred. His work speaks for itself..I am very happy more
I had breast implant surgery performed by the absolute beat plastic surgeon dr. Jenneby. I took time when picking my plastic surgeon and as a psychologist im a great read of character. The staff is friendly, warning, and ensure that you understand everything. Dr. Jenneby is the same but so much more. He is friendly, attentive, detailed oriented and spends a great deal of time ensuring your... more
I was a 32A and always wanted larger breasts. I always felt less sexy than women that had larger breasts. My husband of 27 years has always been supportive of either decision; keep the cute, perky little breasts or get the more attractive, sexy, perfect larger breasts.
I one day woke up and said that I wanted to get a BA. He found this website and started researching surgeons in our area. We... more
Saline breast implants have ruined my life! I warn you, if you are thinking about getting them, OH MY GOSH, please don't.
Here is my story: At the young age of 21 in 2001 just one year after their approval, I decided to get the supposedly "safe" saline breast implants. Unfortunately, I was very naïve at the time and thought I could trust the fda and implant companies and my plastic surgeon,... more
I've been so thankful for all the reviews and feedback here, that I am going to go ahead and share my story as well- in hopes someone will find it useful! And so begins my Breast Book :)
CONSULTATION & RESEARCH:
First and foremost, I've been researching breast augmentation/implants for as long as I can remember, but always felt too scared to get them done. I would go back and forth with many... more
Ok, so from as far back as I can remember I have been asking my mom when I'd grow my "boobies". And every time she'd say later. When I was 16 she said 18, when I was 18 she said at 20 and so on lol. Well it wasn't till I was pregnant woth my son that I actually got some form of breast. I went from a 34a to a 34c and after I had my son, and was breastfeeding, I went up to a small D. I was so... more
I am a 21 Year Old, mother of one. My daughter was happily breastfed for two and a half years and although a wonderful experience, my breasts definitely took the toll. While pregnant and for the months following childbirth, I jumped from a perky small B cup to an engorged and stretch marked DD cup. Although I felt that this was a little too much for my tall, slender frame I wasn’t prepared... more
I am very pleases with my results and the entire process from initial consultation to after-care. Dr Greene and his staff were wonderful. He more than exceeded my expectations. Hope I continue to heal and progress nicely. I am a little over 1 month post op and feel great. Wish I had done this much sooner!

I'm currently looking for the best doctor to see for silicone implants. I have my mind set on silicone implants because I am petite, 108 and I read that silicone implants are best for small framed patients. I also am concern about the feel (I want the most natural feel I can get) and I know saline feel pretty hard... at least that's what I have heard from other people.
I'm naturally a small... more
I had my pre op appointment yesterday and I am scheduled to have my breast lift on the 30th of this month. I am feeling very nervous about the surgery and the results.
I am also nervous about being able to take care of my toddler after surgery. I know I won't be able to pick her up for a while but does anyone have any insight of how it is to take care of a toddler after surgery?
Booked my surgery today!!! Sept 18th!!! It seems so long from now but I'm sure it will fly by. I am getting saline implants, inframammory incision, under the muscle. Biggest stressor now is size. 325cc implant overfilled to either 350 or 375. Dr and hubby say 375. :-) go figure. Lol! And after reading so many posts I think I'm leaning towards the 375. Just scared to be too big, OR to small.... more

I have been reading so many stories on here and wanted to share my own thoughts. I love the support the girls have given each other when no one else want to hear me obsessing about boobs lol. My friends are supportive I suppose but don't really want to know about ccs or profile. That's all I've been thinking about lately.
I went on a couple of consults. One doc in this area I went to is... more
I question myself if I made the right decision since I am 60 yrs old. I have fibrocysistic breasts and have had some issues. I gave my surgeon all of my mammogram and ultrasound medical reports from the past 4 or 5 yrs. I have always had low self esteem about my small breasts due to remarks made to me.
I prayed and asked God to forgive me because I feel he may not be pleased with what I... more

Hi! I am new here. Surgery is set for December 27th. So nervous! I am 34 years old and have 3 kids. I am recently divorced and decided that it was time to repair the damage that has been done to my boobs by having 3 kids and losing weight. I am planning on saline implants under the muscle through the armpit. Still debating between 330cc or 350cc, scared about going too big.
I am 5'1" about... more
Greetings fellow boob-enthusiasts! I'm 33 years old, no kids, and no boobs. Just kidding -- I have boobs -- just not great ones. When I was in college I hit my heaviest weight of 200 pounds, which is almost 60 pounds more than I've weighed in over 10 years. I'm now 140-145 pounds at 5'8", and the boobs are rather deflated and sad looking. I've been to two consultations so far, and the... more
