I had so much more than just a breast lift but I had to choose only one procedure...
I had a breast lift, breast implants, endoscopic brow lift, upper and lower lids, buccal cheek fat removed, complete rebuilt nose, lips, chin implant and lipo to my neck.
My Doctor: Michael Elam, MD
I was referred by another doctor, he said "...there is no one in the world that he would trust other than Dr. Elam. His breast implants are so natural you can't tell the difference between natural and implants...." I agree mine look and feel very natural. I flew across the country at the recommendation of another doctor who I trust. I am a nurse by training and wanted to see only the best and Dr. Elam is the best of the best. While in the waiting room and exam room for my first visit he was very busy. I could hear in the hallway patient after patient thanking him for his work (fixing other previous work done by other doctors) They were so incredibly happy. I had a consultation and he worked with me to discuss my goals (repair damage done over time, pregnancies, breastfeeding and weight loss, age related issues) He answered all my questions and was very patient kind and caring. Because of the distance I was traveling (from the East Coast) all procedures were done on the same day. When it came to size of my implants I left it to Dr. Elam as much as possible as he is does this everyday thousands of times over. I am a professional and said I wanted to be bigger but not crazy big and he used his experience and expertise and I am SO happy. I am very proportionate to my size and their shape is fantastic. He said “trust me when we are done you will be beautiful”… and he was right he made me beautiful…I hear it over and over. His whole staff were nothing but incredible. Shelley was AMAZING! There aren’t enough adjectives to describe how wonderful she is and the care she provided to me post surgery. Doug and Molly who I saw often were wonderful too. The care I received was first class at all times. The time care and compassion of these people can’t be matched. I healed quickly and upon return home it was amazing the response. I look at least 5-7 years younger (I am 41) I have received so many compliments and attention it is incredible. Simply amazing I can’t say it enough. I would do it all over again. I wish I had done it sooner. Wouldn’t change a thing and can’t wait to go back for my tummy tuck (four pregnancies have taken a toll on my tummy skin). Dr. Elam’s follow up is second to none. He calls, emails, communicates regularly. He has made himself available to see me when I am on the West Coast to track my progress. His team are among the most wonderful people. Incredible…. Simply stated they are the best of the best. There is NO other doctor I would rather see trust or consult than Dr. Elam.
