One of my 14 yr old saline implants had recently ruptured and left me lopsided, so I was looking to replace both with silicone implants. Between my old doctor's file and great consultations with Dr. Windle, we were able to find just the perfect replacement size! The new silicone implants feel much more natural and are much better placed than my previous implants. My recovery was so much... more
Sixteen years ago after having my first child I had 240cc saline Meghan over the muscle implants placed. I have been very happy with the results all these years. I have had and breastfed 3 kids since. Would like to fill up extra tissue and change to sientra cohesive gell. Wanted unders for obvious reasons but Dr suggests going over again. After much research and turmoil I have decided to... more
I had a BA with another renowned surgeon in Seattle but sadly my results were not what I was looking for and I ended up waiting a few years to get them fixed. 7 years later I decided to get another BA with a full lift. After consulting with my original surgeon I opted for another one (Dr. Salemy) who happened to work with my first Dr. The pre-op, consultation, surgery and post op went great.... more
I am 31 years old. 5'7", 130lbs, 10% body fat (very little natural breast tissue). In March, I went in for an implant exchange. I had saline high profile 420cc (approximately) submuscular. I was unhappy with my shape, and also wanted to go a bit bigger. The shape I was looking to have was to have more side boob. I truly hated the way my breasts looked from the side. My original implants were... more
I had a breast augmentation done over 20 years ago and found out my silicone implants were ruptured. I was very anxious about the entire removal and replacement process. Dr. Stridde and his staff were amazing. Everyone was kind, patient and very caring. My procedure went very well and I am very happy with the results. I decided to go with shaped (pear) implants and what a difference. No more... more
I was pretty flat chested before getting my under the muscle 507cc textured silicone breast implants. Before surgery the doctor told me my nipples were even. After surgery my left is lower. My right breast looks quite a bit larger and lays completely different than my other one. I hate looking at myself.
Sagging left breast, left nipple is much lower. Right breast Isuzu larger in size.
I will be very happy if u can recommand me..
I had tubular breasts revision before 2 years
I dont have a picture of my breasts before the operation
my left side was A cup, but very saggy
and the right was much more little
my doctor used 385cc and 325CC silicone imlants, moderate profile, benelli lift
I know its much better now than what I had, but I am not happy with th result
Do you... more
I got breast implants a year and a half ago. Click my profile to check out my original review! Silicone, under muscle, 400ccs.
I love my implants, but from the beginning I knew the size was off. My doctor and I didn't account enough for the asymmetry I started with, and it's noticeable enough to me that I don't like to go braless (which is a shame, because they are perky enough to do so!).... more
Dr. Mary Peters was wonderful. From the first consultation meeting to the surgery and post op. I have had implants that were to large for my body for 6 years and finally decided to have them either removed or downsized. I am a personal trainer and am very active and the extra weight was really a drag and they made me look larger than I am in all the clothing i wore. I was worried about having... more
In November of 2011 and I began searching for a plastic surgeon to replace a ruptured implant from an augmentation that I had done by an out of state doctor in 2006. I had researched and met with numerous local surgeons, but in my opinion, none of them had the combination of credentials, ethics, skill, bedside manner and communication skills of Dr.Salemy. I came to him in need of breast... more
Thank you for inviting me to share my agonizing journey since the beginning; I am at the stage of "shopping" for a capable surgeon, experienced in removing old generation ruptured- leaking-hardened- silicone implants that were done along with a vertical mastopexy to remedy ptosis.
I am in my 50's and I want an immediate capsulectomy/ explantation of my ugly 30-year old... more
I had to change the implants that I hated so much before. Wrong shape, wrong size and horrible scar!!!
I had my breasts done a few years back. My consultation was with a very well respected Dr. I was only with him for about 30 minutes durning my consultation but boy could he sell!! I signed up...$10,000. He said he wanted to "fill up my chest." I looked at least 15 pounds heavier... more
I had very old breast implants that needed to be removed. One was completely ruptured and the other was very hard and painful. After seeing a few different doctors and being told that I also needed a lift, I was reluctant to move forward with a surgery that I desperately needed to do.
Once I found Dr. Rand, I was ready to have the surgery. He was very understanding with regard to my lift... more
Better self esteem! After having five prior surgeries because of capsular contracture, I was fortunate to find Dr. G. He removed all the scar tissue, replaced saline implants with silicone and I couldn’t be happier. If only I would have had Dr. G as my first surgeon, I would have saved so much time, money and heartache.
While I was in, I also opted for a mini... more
First augmentation in 1987 (silicone 220cc)
Saline implant after children-2002.(350cc) Personally never cared for the feel of saline implants. Deflation Feb. 2011.
March 2011-Mentor Memory Gel.(550cc) LOVE THEM!! They feel and look and move like they are part of my body.
I have had breast implants for 24 years.
At 19 I had 220 cc silicone gel implants.
In 2002 I... more
I usually do not write reviews but feel absolutely compelled to do so following my experience with Dr. R.
Unfortunately my care with Dr. R was not for primary augmentation but for re-augmentation/reconstruction after two failed surgeries for symmastia and deformities as a result of my primary augmentation.
I resolved, obviously too late, that the required “fix” exceeded the... more
I came to see Dr. S after having a Breast Augmentation from another Seattle plastic surgeon. The breast augementation from the prior surgeon was severly flawed. I had lost confidence in this surgeon, who took a cavelier attitude toward my results, dismissing my concerns and offering no solutions to my severely disfigured physique.
The breast augementation was severly flawed, with my... more
I needed a refill. I had originally wanted a lift and to be small busted (as I've been large chested no matter what weight I am since age 11) but I had no sag. Just empty skin and breast tissue from purposely dropping body fat percentage (for athletic reasons). I went with 380CC of saline under the muscle. Absolutely love it. It was done at the same time as my abdominoplasty so they used... more
Why I did it: I had a breast augmentation in 2004 when I was 18. I specifically remember asking the doctor to make me a small C but I believe the doctor took it upon himself to make me larger (I recently saw my post-op sheet from the first doctor and he had put in 395 cc round implants, filling one breast to 410 cc and the other to 400 cc) and after gaining some weight my bra size was a DD.... more
