5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants

Still Perfect! | 1 Year PICS

Things have seem to move so quickly these last few weeks. I swear I just had my consultation yesterday and now I have 13 days to go until surgery : / I have been stressing and stressing over what size I should go. So far I have at least 2 sizes in mind (before it was like 5!). The sizes I am debating are between 375cc and 400cc. I know it's not a huge difference but hear me out.....

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Chicago, IL

My husband doesn't want me to get breast implants. I just had my nipples reduced in size as a compromise, but I still want to get implants. I'm a 34AA, I breast fed two babies for a year each, while breast feeding my boobs got to a size large C/small D. If I get them done when he's out of town do you think he'll know? He's never been a "boob guy" in the bedroom. Thanks for all your comments...

New to This... Just Had a Reduction 1/27/12...Ebony - Chicago, IL

Let me start off by saying this is the best thing that has possibly happened to me besides the birth of my daughter. I'm 22 yrs old, I stand about 5'4 weighing 148. I have had big boobs since I started teething, lbs. Being big breasted has always been a challenge. Even though I am an attractive young lady I feel that I attract guys for the wrong reason, my large unwanted twins....

5 out of 5 stars Mini Tummy Tuck

Recovery is a Biatch! - Chicago, IL

5'5", 125lbs. Had MTT w/muscle repair via c-section scar, hernia repair. 2 big pregnancies so my muscles were shot. Always worked out and ate healthy. Never had to lose weight. So swollen 8 days post op, I look 5 months preg. Can't see it has been worth it so far, assume that'll change. So painful. I'm pleased with the flatness of my tummy but now I'm worried my scar is turning into a...

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Dr. Schierle - Chicago, IL

I cannot say enough positive things about my experience with Dr. Clark Shierle. I am a nurse and despite all of my experience in healthcare, Dr. Schierle is the most brilliant, talented, compassionate, patient, and caring doctor I have met. I was interested in rhinoplasty and possibly a breast augmentation, but was very hesitant to pursue either. I visited one plastic surgeon in another...

Breast Lift no Implants

Hello all! First I just wanted to thank everyone who has listed an experience or photos on here, they have helped me SO much in the months leading up to this as I did research. Thank you, thank you, thank you. This is a scary and daunting decision sometimes, even though it's what I want, so I appreciate you sharing and I wanted to share in return. Details: I am 5' 9", 155lbs, 27 years old. I...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

- Chicago, IL

I always had small, slightly tubular breasts with fuller butt and thighs - essentially my fat goes anywhere aside from my breasts :( (4'11.5 and 104lbs) and decided it was time for a change. After consulting 2 docs, I decided on the second. I had a small bwd of about 10.5, and 34a breasts, & we initially settled for 350cc. My advice, however, is to go bigger and not fear round breasts!! I...

Lighter and More Free Than Ever! Chicago, IL

I feel so much lighter since the surgery and have spent years and years with chronic neck and back pain. It is awesome not to have to wear two sports bras and I am able to exercise pain-free and run and not feel like everyone is looking at me. It is truly amazing. The recovery was easier than I expected and did not rely on pain pills as much as I thought I would.

54 Years Young and Can't Wait!! - Chicago, IL
