5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift

Breast Lift - No augmentation - Atlanta, GA

I wanted this done for ME! Even as a teen, I never had "perky" breast. Then after 2 pregnancies and lots of stretching, I became even more troubled by the appearance of my breast. Dr. Woods explained the pros and cons and told me I was the perfect candidate for this procedure. One week later, I feel and look great! I was asked to list more details of treatment and pros and cons. The...

Five weeks post op! - Atlanta, GA

So my surgery is about 3 weeks away. I can't believe it's really going to happen. What a strange mix of fear and excitement! I can remember being an adolescent and wearing big t-shirts over my bathing suit (even in the water) to cover my stomach. And it has bothered me ever since. I'm 5'6" and currently weigh about 162 lbs. And I'm 44 years old. My weight most of my adult life was about 135....

34 J to a Full C - Atlanta, GA

2 weeks post operation and I could not be happier. I was having trouble cleaning, cooking, and just living. Within 48 hours my back, neck and shoulder pain was gone. I was walking more upright! I had close to 8 pounds removed. I am swollen and I am still in recovery but I am so glad that I did this.

Glad I'm Not Superstitious! Friday the 13th Ready or Not! - Atlanta, GA

Hi...I finally decided to join this wonderful forum after a few weeks of reading it religiously! I live the the Atlanta, GA area and have had years of back pain. My insurance denied me for the 3rd time (over 15 years of trying) because my back pain is "due to an old injury, not my breast size". I had my pain specialist, my orthopedic dr, my primary care physician, my physical and massage...

Breast Reduction & Lift - Atlanta, GA

I was approved for breast reduction 25 years ago and chickened out! I am so glad I went ahead with it this time. Best thing I've ever done for myself! I was always very heavy for my frame and very miserable. I am thrilled with my results and outcome! Went from a Double D+ to a small C cup. Great!

Extended Abdominoplasty + Extended Mastopexy Dual Procedure Post WLS - Atlanta, GA

I had my consultation with Dr Joseph Woods yesterday. He's the chief of plastic surgery at Piedmont Hospital here in Atlanta. He came very highly recommended by ladies here on Real Self as well as my personal friends. I have to say I was quite nervous (and excited) because it's not everyday that you go to a doctor and say "can you do something about all this junk hanging off my body?" ...

60 Plus & Fabulous - Atlanta, GA

I was married, had two children, worked and took care of my family and although most of my life I was skinny, I had a protruding tummy and always wanted a tummy tuck but would not do it because it seemed vain and a waste of money. In addition, friends and family discouraged me from doing a dangerous procedure that was unnecessary because I was already “cute” and did not need to mess with my ...
