Breast Lift W Implants - East Brunswick, NJ

So I finally decided to go for a consultation,...

So I finally decided to go for a consultation, After 2 kids [breastfeeding both] and losing weight, my bubbs are saggy and deflated. I used to be a 36C but cannot fill my bras out anymore. I always wanted implants and was told I needed a lift too [I knew this already] so I am scheduled for surgery on 9/27/13 and CANNOT wait! So excited. Can't wait to feel sexy again!

4 Weeks Post Op - Lift w Implants

I pushed my surgery back but finally did it in January. Absolutely love my results. Wanted to post my update, scars are minimal and everything looks even. Went with Natrelle 421 Mod plus Implants. They feel great and anyone thinking of using Dr. Herbstman should go for it. I felt comfortable and couldn't be happier - only regret is not doing it sooner.

The Dr and staff were super informative and very sweet. I know a few people who have had great experience with them! So far, I highly recommend him.

Thanks for your update. How did you figure out the size? I am in that process right now. Also what sports bras worked well for recovery? Can you tell me more about the recover process? Thank you!

Thanks!! I read so many reviews on this website and thought a 500cc look was what I wanted. So I told my Dr that, he measured my chest and said we will be in the 400 range to accommodate the lift and maximize the space. I was fine with it and when I tried on sizers, I thought a 420 would be perfect.. The recovery was much easier than I imagined, I got lots of rest for the first two days, slept propped up with pillows and my hubby did most of everything, I didn't need pain pills but used the muscle relaxers and by day 3, Tylenol only. I was able to do things by day 4. I bought another front clasp bra - which looks very much like a surgical bra, they felt the most comfortable. Have you had your consultation?

Thanks for the response to my questions. Yes I have been to my doctor here in Staten Island. He just did my face, neck and eye lift 2 months ago. I am all set to do my boobs April 1st. I am looking at silicone high profile under the muscle. March 17 th I go for sizing and pre surgery pictures. I am 5 7" weight is 175 ...I was 335....that is why my boobs are so deflated. I wear 38 D now but they are padded and I know you can go down a size with a lift so I want to wind up with 38 DD which fits my size. During my lift My doctor has a small revision to fix under my chin so that will add to my recovery too. I am excited and nervous at the same time which I'm sure you understand. My fiancé will be with me for 3 days. He took care of me last year for my tummy tuck and helped me for 3 days with my face and neck....god bless him! I have a recliner chair for rest and sleep. It knows me well by now! Lol thank you again for your update and for helping me. Hugs barb
