Thanks! That's about an hour's drive away, better than a plane ride, (i hate flying!) have you had any surgeries done by him?
Welcome to the community.  I highly recommend going for at least 2-3 consults, prior to making any final decisions on a doctor.  The prep work is extremely important.

Let us know how everything is going and keep us up to date on each step.

Waiting on cal back...

I've decided I don't want to hop on a plane 6 times to use Dr.Khouri . I'm trying to make a consult appoint with Andrew Salzberg, has anyone had a fat transfer breast lift with him?

Good luck & definitely research around like the others said! Although I did not, it was only because I knew my PS being that he's friends with my parents (weird lol). I felt the most comfortable knowing that he was a family friend. But definitely do your research and good luck '!!

I totally agree with Kimmers25. Don't settle on the first PS. Take the time to research your PS and get a few consults. Remember, it is your body and you need to feel comfortable with whomever you choose.

Booked two consultations...(wish pic)

Made 2 consultation appointments today... One with Dr. Salzberg and one with Dr Schulman. I have to wait til next month for Schulman, I'm so damn nervous, I'm afraid I won't be able to make a decision... I've always been so iffy. I hope I like Salzberg, I really don't want to do 50 consultations and not like one or like them all. Has anyone had a lift with either doctors?

I just had a breast lift with Dr. Freund and my results are great. my scar is only around the areola and I have the breasts I always wanted. I would try consulting with him too if you have time.

Consult!

Today I scheduled my consult with Dr Salzberg, it's on the 14th @8am! A very good start to my 29th bday on the 15th!

Hi, I'm in the same position. I actually consulted 3 Doctors. I finally chose 1 and now I'm scheduled for surgery on the 12th February for just lift no implants plus tummy tuck. I'm nervous hoping results will be good. All the best hope you find the right doctor!!

First consult....

Went to see Dr Salzberg today, I absolutely LOVED him and his staff! His PA was great and I think the other woman was an assistant? She was awesome! I didn't feel pressured or like they were hard selling. Salzberg was very honest and realistic. I've always said "I don't want implants" but the fat transfer won't be enough and will end up sagging pretty early so I tried on some sizers, I said "give me the minimum" I ended up in a 450 cc and a 375 cc and freaking LOVED it, I had the assistant rolling when she said 450 ccs before seeing them, I said "please lord don't make me look like Wendy Williams!" She said we don't even have that size! The quote was for $9400, it's a 3000 more than I planned but I really like this office, doctor and staff... Is it dumb of me not to get another consult? My next one is for 2/5/14 with DR Schulman, I'd really like to make a decision before then because I want to schedule for mid feb early march...

Hi how are you. I definitely think you should go to more than one consultation. Just to be sure and see what other technics other dr do and have. I just had a lift w implant with dr Schulman. Love my results. Actually had bbl and lipo and lift. And everything looks great. And I've had a very bad experience with ps so finding dr Schulman was a god sent. So I think u should go see him and mayb one other dr and than make ur decision. This is something you want to be very sure about and not jump to the first dr u go to..unless he was a referral and you know he's great. But I wish you lots of luck on your journey. And you get the best results possible.

I have an appt on the 5th, maybe I won't cancel it... Lol
I don't think you should....lol

Made another appointment...

Made an appointment with Dr. Fruend (sp?) for 1/28, gonna see what he has to say, I'm still iffy about implants, it makes sense with the way the doctor explained it and the overall look I want, I freak out ever so often about my iud... Because there is a foreign object in me... I wonder what will happen when I dwell on augmented boobs? I've wanted this for atleast 15 years, I just turned 29, my children are 11 and 5, I'm done, but now that this is a reality and not just a fantasy, I'm nervous as hell, not about pain, or healing ( I was up the next day after both c sections, carrying my kids on my chest) just... What if I screw them up more? By being "greedy"? I won't post a face pic but I'm very pretty, am I tempting fate? Idk... Weird...

Hi, I've just started researching the last few weeks. Your pics look like mine, but I can't blame mine on kids although I would like kids one day unfortunately for me they just grew this way and I just hate looking in the mirror. I am thinking maybe Thailand is the way to go for a lift, I am open to implants but a little nervous. Anyway I'm hoping to get the surgery around September and would like to keep following your journey. Please keep us informed!!
  • Reply
Mine grew this way too, idk what happened! Lol, I'd be totally fine with them if they were gorgeous before, but that's not the case, I can blame the stretch marks on them tho! Lol, Thailand? I thought about DR or florida but I'm afraid to be so far away from home...
Hi Can't blame sag on kids - your pics look like mine! Especially the frontal leaning forward one - Oh my goodness I get so sad when I am naked in a mirror in that position. I can't afford a lift for a couple more years but I hope yours goes great! Please update when you can!

Styling and profiling....

I didn't know there was sooooo much work in getting new boobies! I didn't know what the hell a HP implant was! Lol, from what I've been reading, HPs are good for narrow chests, I don't want my boobs round and in my throat, I'm gonna discuss this in detail with DR Freund on Tuesday ... For the look I want I think I may look at moderate or MP +

Lol my husband does the exact same thing. He really insists that scars would be worse to look at. I have decided to do tummy tuck first and adapt with the change after that surgery. My surgeon rang me yesterday and he advised me not to do breast lift. His receptionist said my breasts aren't that bad and a lift may not fix the problem. So I'll wait maybe later I'll think of breasts and solutions. Tummy tuck is scheduled 10th of feb I hope I like the results. I suggest you do what will satisfy you and make you happy, all the best!!

Dr Fruend tomorrow!!!!

I have my consult with Dr Fruend in the morning...excited to see what he says... Still don't really want implants but well see what he says. I'd really like to do this the beginning of march or late February...I think I will ask about the tummy tuck... I called back Salzberg and it's about 3000 extra, so that's on top of the 9400. I saw he had a lawsuit in 2011, idk if this should concern me... I still really liked him, his staff and office... I was a little put off when I asked the PA about the brava bra system and she didn't seem to know what I was talking about...or when I asked her about the pain pump (not that I don't think I'll need one)

My breasts are asymmetrical and saggy as well. I breastfed my two kids each for about 12 months, but who am I kidding by boobs have never been perky lol. I haven't had a consult yet, but I am wanting to go with a reduction in the larger breast and a lift in both. I think I would be happy with big boobs (implants) but there is so much more risk and I would be just as happy with my smaller boobs so for me it wouldn't be worth it, but everyone is different!
  • Reply
I don't want gigantic boobies but I literally have nothing! Lol, I hardly fill a b now, I'd be completely flat chested and I'm scared because I have no volume they'll take on that box shape...
I have tomorrow with Dr. Racanelli and next Tuesday the 03rd with Dr. Parker , hope it's under my budget , wishing u good luck :)

Dr Schulman today!

Going to see Dr S today! This is my last doctor I am going to see, he's the last of 3 and I wonder what hell say or how I'll feel about him. I really really liked Salzberg sooo much ! My main focus is the boobies but I'm still contemplating a mini TT... I'll update after the appointment, it's at 3:15pm...

Dr Schulman...oh! Dr Schulman...

First off... I didn't have to wait long at all, which was great! I have no patience...lol...office was very cute and the staff was friendly...I really loved Dr. S' personality... He was honest and thorough as far as explaining what he could do (I didn't try on sizers) I'm sure he could do a wonderful job BUT he costs about 3gs more than I planned on paying...considering the area, I wonder if most of my fee is for rent, lol,very swank. I could probably pay the difference in two months but I wanna recuperating no later than 4/1.... What to do what to do? Salzberg is still my fav overall... A friend just recommended Michael Gartner... Has anyone used him before?

You will probably end up happiest with the implants. Ive seen too many reviews from those who have lifts then wanting/ getting implants. Might as well one stop shop lol. Good luck to you on whatever you choose!
  • Reply
Thanks for sharing your story. I had a similar situation with the implants. When I first went for consultation I wanted a tummy tuck and breast lift. I was a 34 big B or small C. Our breast look similar. The doctor explained to me that by the time they did the lift I would loose more breast tissue and end up with a smaller size than I already had. And in the future I would need a revision as I age and at that point they will become even smaller. I thought about it for a while and ended up getting 300 CC. I feel that they are perfect cause they go with my body. If I didn't tell people that I got implants no one will ever notice. I am only 2 weeks post opt so they are no where near where they are suppose to be but I love them. I think that if I wouldn't have ever gotten them I would have been depressed because I would have been flat chested. Do what your heart tells you to do ;-).

Thank you!! I'm glad you are happy with your decision. You are so right to go with what your heart tells you. Hope your recovery continues being a success!

Booked!!!!!!

For 3/21/2014!!!!! I can't believe I just typed that!!!!! Seriously! OMG! I'm so ecstatic I could cry! I went with Dr. Salzberg, I just loved him and his staff the most. I saw a Dr. Michael Gartner on the 18th and although I really liked him, his staff seemed ok, but he wanted to do my lift and implant or fat transfer as two surgeries... I could understand the logic of it but I just want to go under so many times since I'm sure I'll be getting a TT in the near future... This boobie transformation will cost about $9000, I'm sooooo hoping it'll be worth it... Anything to get my boobs off my stomach will be an improvement... Lol

Congrats on ur decision !! Were in the same boat. I'm getting a lift with 375cc sientra silicone gel implants. My surgery is march 17th. It seems so close yet so far away!! I wish u well and hope everything comes out wonderful!!
  • Reply
Doesn't it?? I've been wanting to do this for 15 years, and I keep telling myself, you waited this long... It's only a month away! You a few weeks! I'm a bundle of nerves! Lol
Girl honestly I wish it was tomm, lol. I was going to do it in 2006 but got a divorce instead. I think I'm more excited then nervous. I've never been put under bf so idk what that's like, but I'm not even worried about that part .……,YET! All I'm thinking about is a new bathing suit with an inch of padding or push-up !!!

Pre-op 2/25!!!!

Signed all my consents... Settled on 375 ccs in both, take breast tissue from larger boob, M+ profile, I'm toooo excited!!! Should I buy a particular bra for afterwards? How will I know what size to buy?

11 Comments

Yay!! Is the waiting driving u or what?! Lol . Everyone keeps saying the surgery is " so expensive". I see mine cost like a grand more than urs but that just depends on the brand and certain details. My husband doesn't care so why shld I right? Just saying, a handful of girls I know went to some dr in Baton Rouge, not sure which one, paid $3500 for saline implants, and were too whopped just saying. I've always believed you get what u pay for , plus the credentials, and reviews and everything is a + so oh well right?! I hope u aren't hearing the same crap. Good luck baby girl and I'm right hear with you!!

I have a co worker who got bug eyed over the price, and was like "oh I'm getting my whole body done in dr for $5000" I refuse to have something like this done far away from home, I was even turned off going to Florida! So NY it is! I'm just looking into bras right now, I was just about to call and ask then do they provide my first surgical bra or if I have to bring one in...
Yea I'm pretty sure they all do, mine was caluculated into the price. Mine is $54.50. They send u home in it. It either zips or clasps in the front. And girl the dang thing is ugly as sin. Lmao !! I'm too excited. The only time I had big ones was breast feeding, and they go down so dang quickly. Omg I'm not gonna know what or how to deal with them!!

Holy bejesus!

I can't believe I'm actually three weeks away... I think my heart skipped a beat just thinking about it... I decided to go with the 400ccs! I didn't want to be afraid I wish I went bigger, I'm a tall woman and even though I'm like 190 now, in about 2 months I'll miraculously will be 170, hopefully I can get just all weight in the stomach area (which is not much at all) I gained the weight to get my ass and thighs back but I lose weight ALL OVER boobs included, I barely fill a b cup now, this summer I was 160, you could imagine! Anyone know how I can keep my belly tight and keep my bottom half the same??? Lmfao

One week cigarette free....

I haven't had a ciagrette all week! I've smoked for 14 years and always thought is be an old lady who'd have a cigarette in her mouth and an oxygen tank! I'm so proud of myself! Since I'm doing 3 weeks of no smoking, which I thought I couldn't do a day... I'm quitting forever!!! I've been prepping all week... Picked up my prescriptions yesterday...in the last week I bought a few button down "granny gowns" I wear hair weaves sooooo.... I bought some curly hair I don't have to do anything to, since I can't raise my arms... I'll install that later this week... I have my lever 2000... I have a list and I think I should be ok... I smoke pot... Did anyone's PS tell them to stop??? I asked my PC about drugs and did they mean pot , she said they definitely meant drugs like heroin, cocaine, crack, etc... So? Any suggestions? I really don't want to give up both!!! lol,

Lmmfao yes indeed u are my kinda chick!! We just moved into the country and my internet won't be installed til next Monday the damn day of my surgery so I can't get on internet or check emails unless I drive fifteen miles into town:( um I think they say quit smoking and drinking and everything so u have the best chance at healing for surgery. If u don't wanna quit tokkin I'd say just slack off and limit urself. And cutting up, at least we know where the grass is greener...... Lmfao

Kind of have an attitude...

So I get an automated call asking me to confirm, my appointment for 3/21 @12:10. I call the office because my appointment time was 930. I was told that whoever was before me surgery is gonna go over 2 hours so I was pushed back... It's kind of like WTF? You know... I figured I'd go to bed Thursday at 11 wake up at 7, leave my house at 745 to be at the office 830. Now this throws me off... I have to sort of rearrange things...

I'm perfectly fine....

Title says it all... I'm A -OK, so ok, I'm standing in the kitchen with the family. (I smoked a joint with my neighbor upstairs) This was truly a great experience... Except for ,immediately upon waking up I had pain in my sternum, I took a perc, and that did nothing, so I was given some kind of pain shot and it got better. I originally told the nurse I needed two, meds do not work properly on me... The nurse says... " I can believe that, the anesthesiologist had a tough time keeping you under" I knew that was gonna happen... Everytime I've been under... I've literally jumped out of bed, ask my my things and signed myself out...so far so good... I took pics after he "marked" me and some in the post op bra provided by them... I feel like the right boob which was bigger is still bigger. He was supposed to remove tissue up even it with left then add implant..I really don't care about a slight difference, I can live with it.. I know it extremely early but I love em already... I can't wait to see my nipples, post op is Tuesday..

First shower!

So I took my first post op shower which was fine... My honey helped wash the super low parts and dry me off so I wouldn't have to bend. It's waaaay too early to tell but my right breast which was bigger than the left for the beginning is still bigger. I didn't expect then to be perfectly symmetrical... But I thought he was gonna take tissue from my right breast to even it up to my left then add the implant... I don't know... Is it just me or my nipples are downward? I know it's way too early but I'm just a nervous nelly...

2 Comments

Your doing good still no shower for me .....my doc said 4 days
  • Reply
You look great. And for the nipples facing downward. The surgeon explained to me the reason for this is so that when the implant drops and fluffs it will bring the nipple up into its proper location. If it is placed where it belongs then after the drop and fluff the nipple would be way up and it would look as if you had bottomed out. Mine haven't finished dropping and fluffing but the nipples are no longer facing down. They get better !!

They itch!

My boobs are itching... Well really most of my body but periodically... My first post op appt is on Tuesday.... I feel great so far, I took 2 percs at 230, not because I was in pain but because it was scheduled, I bought Tylenol to start that tomorrow...

4 Comments

Lol it may be the pain pills making you itch, I rubbed the bottom of my nose so much from itching it started to peel a lil. Super happy for you with no pain, I'm with you , I really don't have any either, amazing right! Do u have textured or smooth implants? Just wondering bc if they're textured the tissue grows on them so they really won't drop that much. I have textured and mine shldnt drop much after swelling, so I'll pray . So how are you enjoying them?
  • Reply
Awww! The shower felt great! I'm just a little worried about the shape of them....
How are you feeling? Any pain? I have none... Maybe a lil soreness here and there but not really... More like just remembering not to bend over, use my arms to get up etc...

Why don't I have a strap?

Has this happened to anyone else? When I woke up and looked down it was my first question and the nurse said the dr said I didn't need one... Won't it take forever for the babies to drop and fluff??

1 Comments

I have smooth round, I hope mine drop some... The right one still kind of looks like my old boob, the shape of it anyway....

Before today's shower...

Took a shower today... No pain... BUT I'm guessing because I haven't taken a perc all day, my body just went through some kind of withdrawal and just threw up...

2 Comments

So glad you are not in too much pain. The pics look great! My doctor said nipples wind up mid forearm height. I go in next Tuesday for mine. I picked mentor high profile and trying to get to DD. He is bringing all sizes into the room. Thanks for sharing your journey.
  • Reply
There's no pain whatsoever... Lol, I prepped my kids for this dramatic thing and it fell flat... Lol... Mine are moderate profile... Did you choose HP or did your doctor?

Post op was today...

Still no pain... Dr said I can lay on my side (thank god) I just should make sure I alternate sides... The doctor wants them to settle a little higher, to keep upper pole fullness, so he gave me a bra that's doubled... Like an underwire and sports bra in one. With the amount of sagging I had I thought I was going to need an anchor lift, seems I have an partial lollipop on my larger breast and the other one is just an aerola one (sp?) ? I'm not mad about it, less scars right? I'm just wondering... Does that mean he lifted enough? Should I have been more verbal about lifting as opposed to the size? Idk... I'm not upset about size... I just don't want to worry about another lift until I'm 40...

1 Comments

I picked the mentor high profile which means they puff out more with a front projection. I have a lot of skin and little breast tissue. I will have the lollipop scar from the lift. He said he would flap in my side fat. I pray it all works. Give yourself more time to see results.

One week post op!

I'm still feeling fine! They're just kind of tight sometimes... Like I can feel em in there... Idk... But no pain... Just kind of uncomfortable because they're still kind of hard...I DID manage to have sex the day after surgery...lol, could not help myself, lol, just told him don't lay on me and we were fine... Slept well... Lol.. Tmi?

Lol on the sex !! We did at three days after , but my chest tightened so much. Now we are good. The shape and size of urs is great. Idk about the lift , I told my dr to do what he had to do to get them to look right, that I was ok with scars. There are so many greats scar products these days. Do u have smooth or round? My will drop only a little bc I have textured implants. We must just still be healing bc mine get super tight in the morning if I'm really active the day bf. needless to say they were tight yesterday and again this morning.
  • Reply
Smooth or *textured*, I was typing to fast!!
They do tighten when I'm active...what do you do for swelling? I'd really like to get the slight swelling down... I think I have smooth... I'll ask tomorrow... They're taking out the sutures...

Sutures are out!!!!

And my boobs frighten me! Are they supposed to look like that??? Ewww! The smell!!! When they took the original strip off was horrible... Like behind a dirty ear... Lol, They put more steri strips on and after they fall off they said it's ok for them to be out... I was somewhat disappointed the DR did not come in to remove sutures (which I didn't think he would do) or even examine them... It was kind of off putting...the suture removal didn't hurt that bad... Only on a few...my nipples are really freaking me out... Cause I saw that pink... Oh my! Shouldn't have looked lol

Lol they were cut up , girl they are allowed to be scary!! Take you some vitamin A 8,000 iu. It makes u heal really quickly. As they start to heal they will look normal:) I guess that's why my dr puts the glue, now I have to worry about my body dissolving the stitches:/

My sister says I showered too much... Idk but I know it didn't look like this last week when she changed the strips... I think I'm gonna just walk into my ps tomorrow... The pic looks worse than it really is... It's like a skinned knee, I just don't know why it happened... The PA was tugging on stitches last week... It was oozing brown stuff (non smelly) it's what made me take them off... I'm gonna let them air out some before putting the bra back on...

You look great!!! Your recovery seems to be going very well. It's amazing how you endured the pain...I could not be without painkillers. Likewise I was itching like crazy every time I took a Percocet!!!! You will be looking hot in your bathing suit this summer!!! :)

Thanks! I'm a weirdo when it comes to pain meds... Giving birth to my son, being so sleepy, I must've told them I was numb because when they went to cut (csection) I felt the pain and my skin split open on the left, it took 16 tries to get that damn epidural to work... Even this go around the nurse said the anesth. Had a hard time keeping me under... I know you're not supposed to but I can freaking drive and do everything on the oxy... Scares the bejesus outta me... I shouldn't be able to function on narcotics like I drank a cup of tea! Lol
I'm already buying bathing suits all over the place... Going to the Caribbean in June... Excited!!!

I really liked Dr. Salzberg and his staff...

I really liked Dr. Salzberg and his staff, his PCC was the best! So far my breasts look very natural, I'm not sure if he lifted them enough but I'm def not all scarred up. I'm waiting for implant to D&F, that may put them where they belong. Overall, I'd recommend to another, might get mini TT if I decide to do it...

So far it's been going pretty good... I don't remember if I mentioned I started going back to the gym on the 1st. I only do cardio and leg exercises, I was told not to do upper body exercises... Which I miss dearly ???? I'm still rather concerned about my right boob looking better than my left. They actually both are beautiful, just a bit different. I'm waiting for the left to round out, I don't know where this indentation came from, it's been here from the beginning, even tho it's not as pronounced when just taking off the bra...I know I have to wait... They're just so different... Idk...

Should I...

Be able to kind of hold a pencil under my boob after a breast lift??? I'm pretty certain the answer is no... Either enough tissue wasn't taken out or the implants are too big? I didn't care to larger... I just didn't want to sag... THEN my breasts are beautiful but individually. I started really massaging my left boob hoping to get it to drop. My right one is so beautifully round, still dropping to do but I'm wondering will that make it appear saggy? I just don't know... It's kind of bumming me out cause I know I'll have to wait to a we where they go...

Hey love!!! I'm following your progress and see your concerns. Have your shared them with your ps? I can see that he cut around your nipples and repositioned them. What does your ps say?

Idk, do you think he moved ur nipples? My dr did my breast lift super tight and relocated my nipples. My boobs are taking forever to drop. Can u feel ur nipples? Still cant feel mine. Im praying ur outcome meets ur expectations girl;*}

5 weeks post op....

Soooo. Tues the 29th I have an appt... I'm dying to see what he says... They're beautiful, but different. I've been massaging the left on aggressively. It looks a little better... I'm worried my right boob will sag. I know I still have to wait so I'm not panicking. I mean, they're 1000% better than what I started out with... I just hope $9000 will last at least 10 years. Lol

You had the exact same thing done add me. I had a lollipop lift on one side and a purse string lift on the other. Also had a c section years ago for my son. My body burns through pain meds like a humming bird! I am two months out now and very happy. Your implants at first are placed a little higher. As they fall behind the nipple they will lift the nipple up. I would definitely give it at least two months before you panic. My doctor said that the one with the lollipop lift could take six months to drop. After two months I have seen a significant change though.

I'm ok I guess... Lol, massaging, anxious to see PS on Tuesday. I'm gonna insist he's there. I'm almost certain he's gonna have to go back in there. I don't know if the implants are too big or I wasn't pulled tight enough?
Idk girl, I was pulled tight to the max. They are soft now, they are just taking forever to drop tho. My appt is Tuesday too and I'm wondering about my fluid under my left. Let me know what they say.

So I'm freaking pissed...

I get a call this morning, notifying me that my appointment needs to be be rescheduled to see a PA. I said I wanted to see the doctor because I was concerned that I was still sagging. She said the PA could assist me with that and was Wednesday or Thursday better. The bitch just blew me off. Then I say well Wednesday is fine, she says 345, no can do, so she says Thursday at 845, I said 9 would be better, "we have another patient at 9" I'm guessing they didn't get HER fucking money yet so she'll get the appointment time she was given???? These people have me livid!!! THEN for a while I saw a little black thing in around my incision, my eyesight is shitty so I paid it no mind. I soaked on the tub last night because I sprained my back and happened to really look at them, asked my honey "do you see black?" Before he could answer I scraped at it with my pinky nail, it was a stitch! They have officially turned me off...

As for as them speaking to you, I'm sorry but they shld not be blowing you off. I wld be pissed too. And the stitches girl I had to clip one twice already, pulled two out the same lil opening , and I can feel another tip of one so don't panic there. I just went to my doc this morning and he's like they are going to drop a lot more, so just be patient and try massaging and pushing on the tops and push those babies down some. When u get there , give them a piece of ur mind, you paid good money and they can't blow you off to ur face. I don't promote attitude but honey they gave damn good reason.;) I'm still praying for you baby;)

6 weeks post op/PA appointment

Had an appt today... Went well I guess, I was in a a bad mood so I just didn't say anything... People have a habit of calling the police on me so I avoid confrontation, lol, she must've felt it cause she was smiling extra hard and trying to be pleasant... Have an appt in 3 weeks to actually SEE the doctor because obviously my right boob is larger and a totally different boob, so I'm more than likely looking at a revision... Which I'm sure I'm gonna have to pay for the anesthia...

I've been gone forever! 13 weeks 4 days...

My trip to the Caribbean went well! Suits looked fab! But I'm certain the girls are sagging...???? don't get me wrong they're 1000% better than before and I love them, I just know in a year, they'll be back on my stomach, saw Dr Salzberg 5/27, he said to wait til august and hell know if I need a revision... He knows I do... I guess technically your body can't possibly heal in 13 weeks, it may be swollen... I think it's a bunch of crock for me cause this boobs been like this since I woke up... Enough tissue obviously wasn't taken off... I'm more upset about prob having to pay anesthesiologist fee than actually being cut on again... Lol, will post pics in a few, I'm grilling...

However this is just my opinion. Anyway are you going to post me some vacay pix? PLEASE!! Lol I wanna see how you looked in a swim suit next to that water;•}

Dr. Salzberg was wonderful, his PCC was awesome! She's what really sealed the deal when I decided on choosing him as my doctor. He ONLY got the four stars because my second follow up appt I did not see him at all...I did not expect him to remove my sutures but I would've been happy if he glanced at them for 2 minutes... Other than that... The experience was wonderful!! Would recommend him to others... 2 weeks post op writing this... And everything is peachy so far... ***update*** 4/28/14 I now feel like a second rate citizen, I had an appt for 4/29, get a call, being rescheduled to see a PA. Now I just feel like my money was taken so I'm no longer allowed in a doctors presence, I'm somewhat turned off because I have real concerns about my breasts and a PA did not perform this surgery so why would she know why my right breasts appears to kind of sag now... I'm highly upset at the way I'm being treated....
