I had thought about getting breast implants since I was in my early 20's. It was a big decision for me, and took many years of contemplation before I was ready. Finally, at 39 years old I was ready emotionally and financially and started to ask around for referrals from woman who had the surgery done.
Over the years I have been to 5-6 consultations at different cosmetic surgeon's offices around the northwest. I never had a preference for a male or female doctor, but it just so happened that all of the docs I saw were male. While they were polite enough, and I'm sure skilled, they all seemed to protray a kind of 'blase' attitude towards me and the procedure. I just attributed this to the fact that they have done so many breast augmentations that they were bored talking about it. At each consultation, I spent about 20 min with the surgeon himself. I didn't know anything different. I have a friend who had her breast augmentation done over ten years ago. They still look amazing, and I asked her where she got them done. She referred me to Dr. Aysel Sanderson in Kirkland. She raved about Dr. Sanderson, so I made an appt.
When I went in for the consultation, it was a completey different experience!! She spent so much one-on-one time with me. I was so impressed with this. She was informative, caring, honest, and genuinely passionate about her work! I could tell that she cared deeply about me, how my results would effect me, and really dove deep to find out what my concerns were, and what I really wanted! I have worked in healthcare for over fifteen years, and I can appreciate the value of how she treats her patients. Truly a class act. I had the surgery done in May.
I am EXTREMELY happy with the results! And something else that suprised me...everytime I return to the office for a post op, she spends just as much quality time with me as she did on that first consultation. She is calm and receptive and you never get the feeling that she is rusing off to another patient. She gives you her full attention. Two times I have mentioned her name to other healthcare professionals in the area, they always say the same thing, "Oh, yes, Dr. Sanderson is very well respected in the field." To me that just confirms my feeling that she is an amazing doctor. I feel so incredibly lucky to have found her. And I am so happy I waited until now to have the procedure done, it was worth the wait! I highly recommend her, and have the utmost trust in her.
