42 Years Old, Mother of 4, Mommy Makeover - Minneapolis, MN

I had a breast augmentation revision swapping out 375cc saline for 485cc silicone and lipo on my flanks and thighs.

I do not have pre op pictures, but today is day 5 post op and I was finally able to take off the compression garment to shower and...

No Regrets - Minneapolis, MN

The only reason I decided to have BA was because before I had children I had really nice firm perky 32 B breasts, but afte having 3 Children they were deflated. I am 100% happy with the procedure the only con is the reovery process not because its so painful because for me it wasn't, but more so because you will be extremely anxious for them to start feeling like your own (with no...

Best Mommy Makeover Experience! - Minneapolis, MN

Dr. G came highly recommended to me by a good friend. Once I meet him and his staff I knew exactly what she was talking about, I felt very comfortable and at ease.

After having two children I wanted to look like I did 6 years...

I love my breasts now they are very...

Wow Was It Ever Worth It! - Minneapolis, MN

I had always been an A cup, but around 35 I had to start buying the "less than A" bras. I realized that at the same time, my regular exercise wasn't keeping the rest of me the same size. The aging process was really going fast! When I was 40, I decided to get breast implants. I went with 375cc and am a full C now. I have had them for 4 years now--even though they feel like my...
