5 out of 5 stars Chin Surgery

Chin Implant / Chin Lipo - 7wks Post Op

Hello, I've had both a chin augmentation & neck lipo procedure performed about 7 weeks ago. And i just felt the need to write this for all those that are worried about nerve damage to help put their mind at ease. By my 3rd week I had trouble speaking, numbness, soreness & was absolutely unable to show my bottom teeth. I even had some strange pockets of movement in my chin when...

Tummy Tuck - Encino

I had been considering a tt for the last 2 1/2 yrs my youngest of three just turned 4. So far my results are incredible and my belly button is gorgeous. Surgery was one 1/16/09. I had a pain pump for 3 days but trust me, you will hurt! I mentally prepared myself and expected the worst so maybe that's why I didn't feel that it was so horrendous. I also had a breast lift and implants...

37, 5'5", 115 lbs, Two Breastfed Kids, Much Needed Lift and Volume. Encino, CA

After two pregnancies and 2.5 years of breastfeeding where I gained 3-4 cup sizes only to quickly deflate back down, in addition to having minimal body fat due to being a fitness instructor, my poor breasts were what I can only describe as fried eggs on nails. It was physically uncomfortable for me to wear a bra because I had no tissue, but going without one was not an option. I was so...

A Great Breast Improvement! - Encino, CA

I had lost my breast fullness after two children, and was referred to Dr. Bresnick by several of my friends. I had lipo with him several years ago with good results, but I wanted to test the waters and see several doctors. He was highly recommended by everyone I spoke to who was knowledgeable about plastic surgeons. I had met several other doctors before seeing him to discuss my breast...

2nd Breast Implant Revision! - Encino, CA

I had my original BA 28 years ago back home in Europe. All went well up untill about two years ago when I started scaring. For my first revision I chose a renowned Plastic surgery office in MDR last year in August. Two months post op I felt pain and a poking sensation in the left breast where the capsular contracture was more pronounced. I could feel a sharp edge around the lower portion of my...

Dr Bresnick Saved My Life - Encino, CA

Dr Bresnick is hands down the BEST doctor I have ever had the privilege of working with. I came to Dr Bresnick physically scarred, mentally exhausted and verging on being all together broken and he quite literally saved my life. Prior to meeting Dr Bresnick I had opted to do a fat transfer in an attempt to avoid a traditional BA and, in short, it was a huge mess. Without going too far into...

Explant and Lift Around the Corner - Los Angeles, CA

As a divorced. FT working mom of two young children, I'm jumping into explantation because I'm scared I'll never do it, if I don't take a small window of opportunity I've gotten. My implants seem to be leaking within the capsule or beyond and are 25-year-old "meme" textured silicone implants. The meme (french for "same" because they're supposed to feel soft and the same as natural breasts)...

37 Year Old Mom of 4, 5’5", 124lbs, 34A to ?? - Encino, CA

I cannot believe this is actually going to happen! I have wanted bigger boobs for more than 20 years – actually, maybe more like 30 years! I remember wearing a bathing suit under my clothes at 7 years old so I’d have something to stuff with toilet paper. But the boobs never came – just not in my genes. I’ve been a 32A to 34B my whole life. After breastfeeding four kids (first when I...

Tummy Tuck & Breast Lift - Los Angeles, CA

I have been wanting to do these procedures for years and years and finally got the courage to do it. Soooooo as all of you I started searching and reading about both TT and BL then had three consultations in my country and 3 in the USA. The last doctor I saw was Dr Bresnick and he was the one I was looking for!!!!! starting with phone calls to his office until the last day before leaving CA I...

Breast Augmentation Number 3 - Encino, CA

It's time for my third breast revision. My original augmentation, back in 2000 was saline over the muscle. They looked beautiful until slowly, they didn't due to encapsulation. I rushed into my next augmentation--I'm sad to say I fell for a surgeon who used car salesman tactics. He was great until he got my money. This time I wasn't getting my surgery until I found the perfect doctor. ...
