5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision
I had my first BA when I was 19 yr old. I was a 34 AA. I barely had any breast tissue and went under the muscle with 400cc saline (silicone wasnt allowed for 1st timers back then). When I healed I notice when I flexed I had a huge crease in the middle of my chest on both breast but being 19 I didn't think any of it. After having my first child at 25 I notice when my breast milk came in I could...
5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
Just scheduled my tummy tuck for April 7th. I've wanted a tummy tuck ever since I had my first kid and realized that my stomach was not 'snapping back' like everyone else's seemed to be. Decided to wait until after I had my second baby, but by this time, money was tight so surgery was not realistic. My belly got even worse after the second child and I developed a hernia. I've had more...

Hello All, First off, thanks Realself for creating a community where women (and men!) can share PS experiences with each other. This site has been/is super helpful in the journey to replace and lift my 14.5 year old implants and I hope my journey can help others. Let's see...where to start: I had my first breast aug. in Oct. 2000 at the age of 24 years old. I was a mother of a breast-fed...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants
I had visited 5 other doctors for consultations before I visited dr smith. My consultation was almost an hour! He was so kind, thoughtful and insightful. I knew immediately upon leaving that he was the surgeon for me. His staff (especially his patient care coordinator Katrina) were all so nice and welcoming. I never felt pressured or rushed and I was given the attention I wanted. Dr smith and...
5 out of 5 stars Sientra Breast Implants
I'll be turning 30 here shortly and with that, I am getting a breast augmentation finally! I am 5'0 and weigh 104lbs and am hoping to have 425cc or 450cc (whatever my skin can handle) silicone- submuscular. I have been wanting this for myself for a long time, but have always been either too scared or felt selfish for spending that kind of money on myself. I went to a consultation in October...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Removal
Started out 3 small B. Wanted small Implants and ended up with 400 cc way to big for my body. After 10 years of a love hate/relationship I finally had them Removed today. I had CC in my left breast for over 5 years, some days I had shooting/burning pains other days it was fine. The muscle was squeezing the Implant up high and misshaping the breast. Dr Andrew smith and the entire...
5 out of 5 stars Mentor Breast Implants
Subfascial 235cc's Mentor mod + memory gel , 45 Years Old, 5'3" 115lbs, Breastfed 1 Child. Irvine, CA
I've always had a small chest. Was never too self conscious about it, but there's definitely been times when I wished I was bit fuller. I'm an active person, who likes to exercise. Needless to say, that made my body look a bit boyish, especially when dropping bodyfat. I had the fortune to get asked by my friend, who works for Mentor if I'd like to be a demo patient for one of her Dr clients....
5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
Great consultation. They have a 3D computerized version, along with sizers you can try on; and they offer gummy bear implants. They actually offer all brands. Dr. Smith is super friendly and very knowledgeable. I opted for silicone breast implants and was able to negotiate a reasonable price.. but they are in the OC afterall.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction
I didn't originally have plastic surgery by choice. I was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 39. I had a bilateral mastectomy and Dr. Smith did the breast reconstruction. The results are amazing! My new breasts are beautiful! The shape is much nicer than my original breasts. I told him that I didn't want to be too big and he listened and I got the result that I wanted. I really...
