5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

37 Year Old with Symmastia After 3 Previous Breast Surgeries

I had previously had primary breast augmentation surgery followed by 2 revision surgeries before going to Dr. Edwards. Because of the large sized implants that were placed at my last revision surgery, I developed symmastia. At my first appointment with Dr. Edwards, he identified the issue immediately and then spent a quality amount of time explaining to me the problem and how he would repair...

Amazing doctor and experience!

I could write a novel of good things to say about Dr. Edwards and his team. (I'll write a short one instead.). I went to Dr. Edwards four years ago for a consultation and knew then that he had to be my surgeon. (whenever that time was going to come.) I was only 20 at the time and he told me he thinks it would be best that I wait a couple of years and I am so thankful I did. Four years later I...

It's important to choose a surgeon that takes time to really understand your needs. Dr. Edwards far exceeded all my expectations!

600cc Ultra High Profile Under the Muscle-2 Days Pre-op So Nervous

I have decided on 600 cc's vs the 650 the surgeon recommended. I think that's high enough to not have size regret, yet just a touch smaller than the size that my mind thought was huge. I have everything prepared for after the surgery. Pillows, all of my medications are filled, the refrigerator is filled with food that is easy to prepare for my teenager. I have a lot of comfortable clothes the...

19, 5'8, Weigh 130, 400 Cc Silicone - Las Vegas, NV

I know I'm young, but I've been wanting boobs for so long now. I have all the support I need, I am simply here to share my story and maybe help anyone out that has questions for me.

After battling infertility, endometriosis, having 9 surgeries in 10 years, several kidney stones, loss of several children and feeling like I'm not even fit to be a woman , I finally decided it was time to do something for myself.
