Let me start off by saying I have quite a history with breast implants. I know what it's like to have saline implants as well as the memory silicone gel implants. When I was 19 years old I decided that I wanted a boob job. I come from a pretty large family and off all of my sisters I was the only one with no boobs ( barely and A cup). So I seriously started thinking about getting breast implant. However at the age of 21,I decided to take the plunge on go for it. My first set of implants were 350cc saline implants nice shape for my size for my body at that point in my life, but considering that I'm 5'9 I always knew I could carry more so I've always wanted to be bigger.
Than I decided about 4 years later I would increase the size and go bigger and I did. I stayed with saline and I choose 650cc they were nice no doubt but than one of them popped 6 years later. At that point I no longer felt comfortable with saline, so this is when i first heard of the cohesive silicone memory gel. I figured since I had to go under the knife again to get my saline implant fixed i might as well change profile and go with 750cc round mod plus implants. Omg the mods looked horribly on me. At this point I became frustrated they were way to wide on the side and flat in the front they made me look weight heavy. I was like I can't live like this I look tall and skinny with these wide flat ugly boobs I've got to do something about this. I did'nt want to go through another surgery but I knew something had to be done either I just stick it out and live like this or change it once again.
So I thought this would be the answer I went back to my previous docter that place the mods and me and he recommended I go with the 590cc ultra profile with and internal bra So I said ok if I downsize a little bit it will take some (just a little bit of the side boob away and a little bigger in the front) I should be happy right. Wrong I've made another mistake on size and profile from the morning I woke up from surgery I knew was not going to be happy with those tiny 590 ultra high profile. I kept them for 6 months debating what I was going to do. I still had to wear patted push bras while still looking flat chested with my 590cc. I was so depressed I had decided that I was going to just take my implants out and live without them, but my husband was so supported of it all he told me honey you won't be happy without your implants and going back to being flat chested, there has got to be docter out there that can give you the results you want to achieve. I finally agreed with him.
So, I started researching doctors I had no idea where to start. I wanted a plastic surgeon near by but it had never occurred to me to go out of state. As I was looking online I stumbled across this Real Self site. I started browsing over different posts and reviews of different doctors here and I even sign up to the site myself. I started asking a few doctors questions just to see what kind of response I got. I would look on several of the doctors sites here and look an before and after photos of patients they had previously operated on. One docter in particular stood out to me. So I decided I'm going to call and set up a consultation. When I call his secretary told me he was'nt in and to leave my name and number and he'd call me back so I said ok, not really thinking much of it.
Doctors are so busy most off the time I did'nt think he'd call me back. (But 2 hrs later he did) we talk for a while and I explained to him what I had been through with my current implants and I noticed on his site that he has experience with revision surgery) and this is why I wanted to schedule a consultation with him to see if anything could be done to help me. My husband and I drove 2 hrs away (out of state) to the consultation). The consultation was quick I had my consultation and pre op all in the same day. I knew right than and there I wanted Dr. Schreiber to perform my surgery. He was so kind and down to earth and his staff was really nice. I had all my bloodwork done by my primary care docter and two weeks later my husband and I paid the docter and the hospital where my surgery was going to be performed.
I had my surgery this morning and everything went very smoothly. I am very happy at the moment, I got 800cc high profile cohesive round memory gel. They are absolutely beautiful. I was afraid that I would come out of surgery and they would look like torpedoes on my chest, but not at all. I also thought they would be pushed way up to my collar bone but the are not . My nipples are perfected centered and the breast are round just like I wanted them to be. I have lots of cleavage loving them so much. It's been a long time since I felt this way about my chest. I can't stop starting at them in the mirror. I have no pain at all it's been 9 and half hrs since my surgery and I feel great other than a little throat pain. My throat is little dry I keep drinking water to moisturizer it abit.

My Doctor: Jeffrey E. Schreiber, MD, FACS
I found Dr. Schneider here on Real Self, he is and awesome, wonderful, nice, and very down to earth docter. His staff made me feel right at home. He really goes out of his way to make you feel comfortable. He answered all my questions. And he does'nt rush you.Which is definietly a blessing! Dr. Schneider is a true artist and I am very happy with my results.He gave me my confidence back. I couldn't be happier. I feel like a million bucks. The only regret I have is I wish I had found Dr. Schneider sooner he would have saved me alot of heart ache and pain.Thank you Dr.Schneider for giving me light at the end off the tunnel!
