I wanted a breast lift because I'd recently had my 12-year-old saline implants removed. My breasts were pretty deflated so I wanted to get them lifted back up.
Dr Horndeski has a great office staff. They are -super- prompt at answering questions, and everyone in the office was nice. I traveled from out of town to have surgery after reading so many rave reviews on here.
Surgery went fine, the worst part was the nurse who put in the IV had to poke me a few times to get it to finally go. The anesthesiologist was very nice too. One minute I was there, and then I was gone. When I woke again I was ushered out quickly, I'd have rather laid there for a few more hours to sleep!! (Esp with that warm post-surgery blanket they give you.)
The only meds I took were the antibiotic and anti-nausea pills. I was sore but not really in pain. It felt like I'd done way too many push-ups, so it was tolerable.
So the results... I'm not sure yet. My boobs look -huge-, so I'm hoping it's some swelling that's causing it. If not, I'll have wished that I'd gotten a reduction at the same time. For those of you wanting upper-pole fullness, I totally have it! If it stays like this people are going to be swearing I have implants in there, that's how full they look. I also think that they look like I've already bottomed-out, which is disappointing.
Things I wish I knew beforehand: I found out at the pre-op consultation that Dr Horndeski said he's only been doing these UBL's for about a year.. so the jury's still out on what happens in the long run. Also when he quoted me his fee, I didn't realize it included the facility & anesthesiologist's fees.
I know I need to be patient and give things time to settle.
I'll post some pics soon

I'm feeling a little better about the look now. I'm still disappointed that they aren't smaller. I feel like I look like I did before I had my implants removed - on the one hand that's good because at least I've achieved the look 'naturally', OTOH not good when I was aiming for smaller. I am completely perplexed how they "filled" in my breast area, I didn't think I had that much tissue back there.
Today when I looked at my side profile, I can tell they're already drooping a little lower. Not too surprising when I'm lugging an "F" breast size, but only one week post-surgery.
$10,000 later and I look like I did 4 months ago... meh.
4 weeks later & I'm feeling better about myself...
