Thrilled with the new Ta-Ta's!!! - New York

I have been unhappy my boobs since I was a teen. When other girls were developing, I was still in a training bra. I am 5"10, 150# and was a small B cup. My breasts were very small and not in proportion to my height/weight. I always felt awkward about my size and was even teased. Some guys laughed at my "mosquito bites". Well, I recently turned 40 and decided to finally get a BA.....wanted to do it since I was 20 but was scared and could not afford such an expensive procedure. I went to 3 plastic surgeons over the years and never felt 100% comfortable to make such a big decision. Then I met Dr. E and knew he was the right one for me!!!!! I decided to get 304 cc , he used the dual plane technique. I now wear a size 36 C/D and fill out my bikini perfectly!!!

Dr. E offer "24 hour Rapid Recovery"....At first I was highly skeptical, but after reading dozens of positive reviews from his satisfied patients I chose him to do my surgery. I AM STILL AMAZED at how little pain there was. I took no pain killers, only ibuprofen. I was able to lift my arms above my head in the recovery room. I even went out to dinner the same evening after my surgery!!! Dr. E is one in amillion....I highly recommend him to anyone considering a BA!!!!

You look great! Thank you for posting your experience here on RealSelf.

this site is great.... It's so nice to be able to relate my experience and hear other stories too:)

I am currently 4 months post op and feel great! My breasts are no longer sore, they feel soft and are dropping and fluffing nicely. This whole experience has been life changing for me. I used to be SO insecure and hated the way I looked. Now I have confidence when wearing a bikini......IT'S A WONDERFUL FEELING!!!! No more padded bras for me. I suggest every woman unhappy with their breast size take the plunge and do it, but only after extensive research. Dr. E chose moderate profile Allergan silicone implants for me. I definitely made the right decision choosing him as my surgeon. THE RESULTS ARE SOOOO NATURAL! I did not want to look like a plastic,fake barbie doll. He explained to me that in most cases, larger,high profile implants tend to create complications later down the road. He also informed me that 1 in 4 woman will need a revision after surgery due to double bubble,capsular contraction,excessive tissue stretching,etc. But his revision rates are much lower than the norm.due to his technique. The dual plane method does not stretch breast tissue to extremes. He took precise measurements before surgery and assured me he creates the most natural results. He is a wonderful doctor and I could not be happier! Good luck to all ladies considering surgery.
Look great!

my implants are Natrelle Style 15 for those who would like to know ;-))

Love your look Kooberry!!! They look so natural! Still waiting for mine to drop but so happy I made the decision. When do you think yours finally were done dropping?
Thanks diva! I understand what you mean about being worried. I also was nervous about how my co-workers and friends/family would react. I actually found a PS who specialized in giving the most "natural" results, so not many people have actually noticed I had anything done!! lol I did not want the plastic,fake "Pamela Anderson Baywatch" look. Honestly,it's only noticable I have bigger breasts in a bathing clothes it's not obvious. I suggest you see several different doctors before going through with it. My PS was board certified, which means he specializes in BA and also he had dozens of great reviews from patients so I had confidence he was the right one for me. I hope you have confidence to make the right decision, just follow your heart and you'll be fine;) Good luck!
Hello, Kooberry! Congratulations on your new look. You look absolutely amazing. I've been doing tons of research as I'm considering breast augmentation. I'm a 34 B and am thinking 34 D. I'm 5" 2 and fluctuate between 110-115. I would honestly get the surgery done tomorrow, but I'm torn about what co-workers, family, friends will say. When you returned to your normal activities, how did you handle the looks, comments, etc? I know that shouldn't hold me back from doing what I want, but, unfortunately, it has so far. Thanks for any advice you can give.

oh, I forgot to mention how wonderful Dr. E and his staff were towards me throughout the whole experience. I never felt like a dollar sign. Dr. Epstein never rushed me and was extremely caring and answered all of my questions professionally. He even called me the same night of my surgery to make sure I was feeling OK...and sent me a beautiful bouquet of flowers too!!!!! A truly kind hearted doctor that goes out of his way to make his patients feel special.

Hey there. All is well. Had my 3 month checkup and my PS was really pleased. He decided to take pics and I don't have to see him for another year. You were right. The implant we chose makes them look so natural. I'm happy with mine and love to dress them up. Look out summer here we come!!!
cool girl would like this
Thanks boob envy. Research (google) rapid recovery for more info. Actually, not many doctors offer this incredible procedure! My PS Dr. Mark Epstein was absolutely AMAZING...go to his website for details.  I took no pain pills after my BA and actually went out to dinner the same evening after my surgery. MIND BLOWING is an understatement!!!

Dr. Epstein used the dual plane technique on me. He was very thorough and took time to explain the entire procedure to me. I felt safe and assured that he would do an excellent job. I did extensive research, he has so many positive reviews from patients that had a wonderful experience, which was the main reason I chose him to do my surgery. I just knew he was the right doctor for me. I definetely recommend him and suggest any one considering an augmentation to do research. It is very important to find a doctor that is board certified!!! I feel so pretty now and actually get great compliments. Before I was teased for being flat now I am told I have beautiful breasts. Every woman deserves to feel sexy. Now when I look in the mirror I feel like a real woman....THANKS DR. E!!!!
