Breast lift and implants :)

I am going back to dr Manuel for my breast. My husband and I will travel 6 hours in car -how fun- ....I have lost tons of weight in past and breast fed 2 kids. Currently wear a 38b. I've been pretty worried bout the implant size. My friends keep telling me to go bigger. I asked for reccomendation with implant from my dr and he suggested biggest I go is 400cc implant. :) I'm pretty nervous...

Dr Manuel and his staff are fantastic. I couldn't be more happy. I will return down the road again if I ever get another procedure. Dr Manuel is very professional and knowledgable. He made me feel confident and that everything will be ok:). His staff are friendly. Just a all over great experience

52 Year Old That Has Some Livin Left to Do..... - Anchorage, AK

So far my consult was fast, but so efficient at the same time. He asked me why I want a tummy tuck. I said, I got some living left to do. My Pre-Op coming in one week.

38, So Excited and Nervous for Implant Removal and Lift! Anchorage, AK

*** post op I am extremely happy with Dr Manuels work!! He is very attentive, very kind, listened to what I wanted, never tried to persuade me to keep the implants, and so far I'm happy with results and I have a lot of hearing left to do before I see final results! I've only heard good reviews about Dr Manuel. I was very happy with my consultation with him, he was very downto earth, and unlike so many plastic surgeons he didn't ever suggest I get different implants or leave them alone. He completely understood and actually told me he thinks the surgery will be life changing for me. When I told him I am close to forty and am just really uncomfortable and tired of them, he actually understood and he felt they were too big for me too..... When you get them in they convince you your great broad shoulders and frame need huge boobs.... I think they're ridiculous.... I went from a full B to a DD!! I want to be a B again! :0)

45 Y/o Mom of 3, Ready to Say Goodbye to Padded Bras. Anchorage, AK

Dr. Manuel & his staff are amazing. My whole experience was excellent. Dr Manuel is a man of few words, but very efficient & professional. All the staff are so welcoming & knowledgeable. I had my surgery at the Alaska Surgery Center in Anchorage & the staff & nurses were awesome. As soon as I woke up in recovery the nurses were on top of my pain management & making sure I was comfortable.

My Tummy Tuck Surgery - Anchorage, AK

Dr. Manuel is amazing! He was confident, kind, gental, and made me feel absolutely comfertable in expressing my concerns. I also had a post op visit with he's associate Dr Cole and she was just incredible! She showed so much compassion and care while I was getting my stitches out that I didn't feel a thing! For a physician to sit and hold my hand while explaining what to expect in my next few visits made me feel so cares for. i have nothing but great thing to say about this practice!

33 Yrs Old, 4 Kids, 3 C-sections.....found my RX for a Tighter Future - Anchorage, AK

At this point I am just counting the days to my TT and BA to take care of what the gym and weight loss has not. Normal fears > scars, implant sizing, recovery..... Maintained 50 lb weight loss for over two years after my last baby (12 yr old, 8 yr old, 4 yr old, and 2.5 yr old) and still feel like I need some extra help to love my body again. Main areas of concern: belly button to c-section...
