I Would Do It Again - Birmingham, MI

I have always had a tummy bulge, even as a teenager. I am 52, 5' 4", 138 pounds with an athletic build. I did my belly - lower and just above belly button area and my sides in the back just below my waist line. I see a really nice difference with one treatment on my belly; the back side is not really as noticeable. My doctor told me at my age and with my life long belly I would have some...

Saline Implant Removal After 18 Years, No Replacement, No Lift. Birmingham, MI

First off I want to thank everyone who has been posting to the site. It was your comments, and you're courage to share, that help me through this process. 18 years ago I made the decision to have saline implants. At that point in time I was very very small, nearly flat chested, with virtually no breast tissue. The implants were put behind the muscle wall. All in all I was very happy, although...

ThemiTight at Two Months out - Birmingham, MI

It has only been two months and when I went to the Doctor today, he told me they haven't been seeing good results till after four months.

Well we took pictures today, two months out and he wasn't expecting much change but he emailed me the pictures and was very impressed for...

Saline Implant Removal After 1 Year - Bloomfield Hills, MI

A year after my BA, I developed a capsullar contracture on the right breast, the left breast was sagging. My right breast was about one inch higher than my left. I did not notice it immediately but had been experiencing some pulling pain on my right side that reached my underarm. I also had a swollen lymph node on the same side. It was time for my mammogram and I asked them to perform an...

Ready to Run Au Naturel After 24 Years! - Birmingham, MI

(probably won't post pics - don't have any before photos. Perhaps some afters down the road. sorry.) I had my implants put in at the age of 19. I did not develop "normal" breasts as a young girl - at least not like any I had seen before... I went for consultations and was super happy at the prospect of having a lift. Then my doc talked me into size D implants as well - he swore I wouldn't...

Out with the Old - Birmignham, MI

I was an A cup before and wanted bigger breast. I requested a full B cup to my plastic surgeon, I also needed a nipple crescent lift due to nipple positioning asymmetry. Long story short, I wake up from the anesthesia with huge DD-DDD implants and no nipple crescent lift done despite having paid for it. Ended up with way bigger implants than request and a nipple about 1 inch lower than the...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

So, So Happy I Did It! - Birmingham, MI

I'd been living very unhappily with my asymmetrical breasts. I was afraid to wear tight fitting clothing or God forbid, a bikini. I wanted to find a doctor that had a good aesthetic eye, good bedside manner and experience. I'd previously been to a doctor that really didn't want to spend any time with me.

The Next Stage of Life at 37- Explant and recovery

I am currently a 38 D, exactly what I asked for 8 years ago. Sub Muscular, smooth, round, high profile Mentors filled to 480cc saline. I was a 40AA before the procedure due to three babies and long term pumping for each one as my nipples were flat and wouldn't detach. My PS told me I wasn't a AA even though I wouldn't fit into a B cup on a 40 band, which is what he said I was. Try finding a...
