5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift

51 Years Old, Ready for a Breast Lift - No Implants. Ottawa, ON

Dr Silverman, in ottawa did a great job, very calm, patient and professional. I'm a 51 year old 130 pound, 5"3, mother of one, never breast feed. I'm currently a 36C and just wanted a lift. This is my first day post op, still sore, swelling gone down a bit. Bandages still on and wearing a bra. Have a appointment to see him Friday for a check up on how they look. Will provide photo's soon...

My Girls Will Be 4 This June - Ottawa, ON

I had a BA done and my girls will be 4 this June. Dr Silvermen does amazing work. I'm one of his trans female patients. When looking for a surgeon who would do the surgery for me I did my homework and he is by far the best but then ive only had one BA. I highly recommend Dr Silvermen to anyone who who wants Nautreal looking breast. His bedside manners is amazing and he really cares about what...

29 Yo, No Kids, Breast Lift After Weight Loss - Ottawa, ON

Two years ago, I was 5'7, 225 lbs with DD breasts. I am now 160 lbs with a C cup. I've never been perky, but now I feel quite droopy! Especially when I lie on my side and my boobs just sort of flatten together. So, post-divorce and with some profit coming in from the sale of the house, I decided to treat myself to a breast lift, hoping to stay around a C. I noted the following as the...

43 Years Old - Much-needed Breast Lift - Ottawa, ON

My husband had passed away after a lengthy battle with cancer. Throughout his illness I did not properly take care of myself. My weight fluctuated a great deal which took a toll on my breasts. They resembled partially deflated balloons. I could not envision moving forward in life with my breasts in such condition. I decided that it was time to do something for myself, so I scheduled an...

New boobs, happier mama..

I am 43 yrs old, 5"6 145 . I came to my Dr as I wanted a breast lift. My Dr said that I would have a better result with an implant to get the upper pole fullness with a mastoplexy. We agreed on over the muscle as I have my muscle high on the chest wall and am very broad through the rib cage. On July 15th, I underwent surgery for lipo on my back, flanks and underarm and had 395 Natrelle ...

5 months PO TT 6 weeks PO Breast Lift

I 36 yrs 127lbs and 5'2". First kid at 19 and I gained 75lbs, after that you could imagine my body was never the same. I had 3 other kids and maintained a non preg body weight of approx 125lbs. My tummy remained fairly flat but totally saggy (the dreaded pooch), however it was well camouflaged by 32FF Boobs. With 32FF boobs and my small frame whenever I dress up I am treated like...

I Finally Have my New Boobs :)))) - Ottawa, ON

I have been wanting new and awesome boobs since my first born 13 years ago. I did my research and always found it very motivating. I had my surgery on Dec 22 2015 and feel great today only 2 weeks after. I strongly push anybody who's doubting it to just do it. No regrets. Make sure you pick a Surgeon you are absolutely comforatble with. I went with Dr Silverman who came highly recommended in...

33, No Kids, over 100 Lbs Weight Loss - Ottawa, ON

Just booked a few days ago and it hasn't really sunk in yet. I almost don't want to go out in a bathing suit this summer because next summer I'll have the flat stomach I deserve! The last of the old me (the one who weighed 258 lbs) will be gone! Less than 4 months to prepare and I know the time will fly. I'll be working my butt off in the meantime because I'm soon to be making loan payments...

475cc High Projection Silicone - Ottawa, ON

I've put off posting a review for some time now however I did write one about 3 months after initial surgery and just never posted it. Here it is; I've always wanted large breast and felt like less of a woman with the tiny ones I had (had an 34A before).I thought about it since I was a teenager and my mom and aunts all have large breast so I really associated this with womanhood. At the...
