Dr. Wilson is Amazing

My experience with him was wonderful. I had a breast reduction at Martin Army Community Hospital and he was my surgeon. He has a great bedside manner. He wanted me to stay overnight for observation and he would come and check on me through out the day. I would definitely recommend him and I would be happy to see him in the future if need be.

48 Y/o Mom in Desperate Need of Mommy Makeover After 90lb Weight Loss

I have been considered "morbidly obese" since the birth of my son (1999). The first time I had a doctor tell me that, I was SHOCKED? Me? I knew I had gained weight but morbidly obese? Then came the, "who is THAT lady in the pictures with MY family?" question I asked everytime I "allowed" someone to take a picture of me with my husband and/or kids. So, I did what I think MOST women do...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

22 Years Young Breast Augmentation 500cc silicone w/ Lipo on Flanks, lower Abdomen, Hips and Utter Thighs. Columbus

I have always had a athletic build but due to emergency surgeries I have kind of "lost" it. Mainly in my abdomen and utter thighs, such a nightmare! I know some people who went to Dr. Palaga years ago so I decided I would do the same. I am a little nervous after seeing some of the others results on here but his look book is amazing and opposite of what I have seen. I would love to know of...

5'5" 125 lbs HP Silicone 425cc's..1 year post op

Hey everyone! Been lurking for the past couple weeks since locking in my surgery date. I will be getting a Breast Lift with an implant on 08/27/14. My PS and staff have suggested between 400cc and 450cc (closer to the 450 end), below the muscle, silicone to get my desired look. I would really like to be a small D. I don't want to get into the DD range since I think it would look too big...
