Finally Getting Breast Augmentation Via Fat in Indiana - Carmel, IN

So finally after going on and off about implants I decided it wasn't for me. I decided that fat transfer is a better choice, because it is all natural. I chose Dr Van Natta because he seems like the best doctor in Indiana and most experienced in breast augmentation. After meeting him today, I am confident that he is the right doctor for me. His patient care coordinator is also super nice and...

30 Years Old, No Kids Small Breast Augmentation, Long and Detailedreview - Indianapolis, IN

195cc/215cc Silicone gel Dr. VanNatta, Indiana So I spent A LOT of time lurking on this site so it only seems right that I write a review of my experience. I so greatly appreciated the detailed reviews that were similar to what I was hoping for. To start I have wanted boobs since I was old enough to know what boobs were. My breasts stopped growing sometime in middle school and I ended up...

37 Yo Mom Who Breastfed 3 Babies and Lost my Boobs. I Am 5'6", 155lbs, Athletic. Carmel, IN

After nursing 3 babies, my formerly awesome natural breasts (34 C/D), completely lost their shape and one breast was a full cup size larger than the other. This made me self-conscious and no matter what I do in the gym, it would never help. I went in for my consultation with Dr. VanNatta (I had consulted others) and I was instantly sold. First, his coordinator Michelle, is AWESOME. Dr....

Sweat Bothered - Carmel, IN

The procedure was very easy to tolorate feeling virtually no pain sensation after the numbing injections. They were simple as well as Lisa was a pro with her needle. It took about an hour and a half to do both arms and I am already sweat free. I iced that evening and had a good amount of swelling, but not too uncomfortable. The next day still swollen and armpits were numb but comfortable...

Abdominoplasty, Hernia Repair

I've been a Real Self reader for a few months. I couldn't bring myself to share until after my procedure. This site has been very helpful in my preparation for surgery and now post. I am 5'2, 145lbs and very active and healthy. I've had three babies (4, 6 & 8) and couldn't manage to reduce the projection of my abs. I had a huge diastasis and an umbilical hernia. I went for my first consult...

So Happy with my Results! - Carmel, IN

I am 23 years old and figured now is the best time to have a breast augmentation. I was a 34 AA pre op and now I am a 34 D (Victoria secret) I couldn't be happier with my results! They fit my body perfectly! I couldn't believe how easy the recovery was. I was out running errands a few hours after surgery. Such a self esteem boost!

I'm 32 yo and had 2 c sections. My tummy is ugly and I'm ready for a TT - Indianapolis, IN

Here are some 3 & 4 weeks PO photos. I'm much smaller than pre-op but still very swollen. I have a large area near incision that is bulged out (which I hate) but I'm trying to be patient. I also have some fluid above my BB that I'm hoping will go away soon. I'm 1 yr post op and still happy I had the TT. I've gained a little weight which now goes to my arms and back where it used to...

Fabulous Mommy Makeover! -Indianapolis, IN

After having two children, breast feeding for close to two years in total and gaining over 70lbs with my first child, my body was a mess. I lost all the pregnancy weight and was back down to a size 8-10 pre surgery. However, my breasts were far less than perky and I had a tummy bulge that would not go away! My "mommy makeover" included a breast reduction and lift, tummy tuck and liposuction...

Amazing! - Indianapolis, IN

I had silicone implants put in by Dr. Van Natta and he's amazing! It only took him about 30 minutes to do the procedure and it wasn't that painful. I was out that night with friends, taking only ibuprofen, and was back to work the next day. It was so worth the money. Love this doctor and will certainly use him again in the future.
