5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Nursing Mother Needed Help...- Grand Rapids, MI

After nursing four children, my breast were pretty much "gone". I kept thinking "If I could only fill up all this sagging skin." I was pretty self conscience, especially in bathing suits and at the gym. I decided it was time to do some investigating into an augmentation. It is also really cool that you can see your "after" pictures before the actual surgery because of a 3D imaging he has in...

I was extremely nervous about procedure beforehand. I am 5'2, 119 pounds, and very active. I run, lift moderate weights, and just don't have time to sit around much. I think this site has helped at times, but made more nervous at others. My fears and concerns; first, mommy guilt...I felt selfish, then it was nerves about money and determining if i could afford to do it, next pain...some...

I've always been small chested- about 32 B and I hated it...

Breast Augmentation - Grand Rapids, MI

I had wanted to get a breast augmentation for several years and while I was on my deployment this last year I decided I was going for it. The staff at Dr. Bengtson's office helped me from day one and made me feel comfortable and confident about my procedure. My flights were delayed since I was coming up from New Mexico and I had to push the consoltation to the day of the surgery. I had to...

5 out of 5 stars CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting Grand Rapids, MI

I had to have two series of treatments to have the results I wanted. My fat was isolated and it didn't matter how much exercise I did....the fat wasn't budging. When the applicators were applied there is a bit of pain but it goes away quickly once the fat starts freezing. After the procedure my stomach and thighs had a bit of tingling for a couple of day's after but I had no pain. Great...
