5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift

No Scar! I Love It! - Bakersfield, CA

He is known as the BEST OF BAKERSFIELD and everyone who goes to him knows why! Dr Shah did my breast lift a few years ago. He did such a beautiful job. It has been 4 years and the scar is totally invisible. I am so happy with the results. I liked to do it because i needed to have some more fullness...he was able to do the surgery, have a really nice look, and make the scar go away. The office is also so nice.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Removal

Im All In and Ready to Be Me Again! - Bakersfield, CA

My journey with implants has been a roller coaster. I originally got them because my hubby dissed my post weight loss boob appearance and I told him if it bugged him so much PAY FOR NEW ones! He is relentlessly cheap and I was very surprised when he did. So on 10/26/06, I had Mentor 450ccs high profile (big mistake! get the lift and BA if so inclined! skip those HPs) implanted sub...

Highly Recommend! - Bakersfield, CA

This office is over and above professionalism! My experience was great, the scheduling was very timely and my results are amazing! Everyone there is extremely friendly and knowledgable. It is very obvious they take their training very seriously. I would highly recommend Beautologie to anyone who is considering any type of procedure. The quality of care I received was second to none. I...

4 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Mommy Makeover 5yrs Post Op -REVISION SCHEDULED- Bakersfield, CA

I am still disappointed with my results. I spent $15,000 to have my body back and the results have left me still unhappy. I have two different breast and a bulge over my incision line. I recently went back to Dr. Shah in Bakersfield and he thinks everything is great an that I'm being over critical. Tell me what you think? I have added more pics of my horrible MM for everyone to see and how...

TT & BBL - Bakersfield, CA

Hello all. I am a 35 year old mother of three. I am 5'2" and about 120-123 pounds, depending on the day. I was 105 pounds before children and the multiple pregnancies destroyed my stomach and figure. I now have a small pooch and hanging skin on the lower abdomen and stretch marks from belly button down. Also have puckering around the belly button. When I look in the mirror, I feel...

Get my Boobs Back That I Had Before Children - Bakersfield, CA

I am suppose to get 450cc HP saline. Now im thinking I want a moderate plus silicone implant. I am hoping for less projection with the mod plus profile. I have been looking at a lot of pictures and mod plus seems to have the look im going for in the most part in pictures. I want less projection and more of a natural look. I am 5 foot 3 and 120 pounds. I am 22 with two children i breastfed...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

It's Been over 9 Months Since my Reduction and I Waited for Today for a LONG Time! - Bakersfield, CA

I realize I can't have perfect breasts, but my wish was to come close. I wanted to be smaller (was DD/DDD) and the reduction took away a lot of my neck pain. BUT.. right side 1 cup bigger than left, aerolas did not match, and too much fat on the sides. Today was my correction. The pictures I'm putting up now were taken last night. This was definitely a little more painful than the reduction...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Was DDD. Bra Straps Cut into Me, Shoulders and Neck Hurt, Could Never Wear a Halter Bra Because They Were Too Heavy -Bakersfield

Just as I said above, they were too heavy. And for being 5'2", made my body look way out of proportion. I had implants 9 years ago, and with weight going up and down (mostly up), they got bigger, heavier, and the areolas, which were already huge, got 'huger'. The doctor that did my reduction is the same that did my implants. 9 weeks post-op now. And even though everyone tells me it will get...

5 out of 5 stars Restylane

Tiny Chicken Lips to Pouty Lips - Bakersfield, CA

I'm 28 and have really thin lips. When I smile all you pretty much see are teeth and gums lol I had been wanting pouty lips for a very long time but was always fearful of the dramatic change and worried what people would say. Well, I put my worries aside and decided to go for it :) I had 2ccs of Restylane I wanted dramatic haha. I got what I wanted. My lips got swollen. I was embarrassed to...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Should've Fixed the "Girls" Sooner! Bakersfield, CA

I was always "blessed" with a shapely figure and an hourglass which included a 36D bust. However, after three children suckling, I lost most of the tissue in them. Unfortunately, I waited until I was over 50 to do something to remedy the situation. I had had a successful tummy tuck in 2005 through a fabulous doctor here in my town and decided to have him augment my breasts when he had to...
