Are you a patient of Kenneth C. Shestak, MD?
I am a 23 year old female, about 5'7", 130 lbs, very active and currently wearing a 34B bra size. I've been obsessively reading reviews on this site ever since I scheduled my BA surgery date, and thought it was about time I started giving back! My pre-op appointment is on May 16th and I have scheduled the surgery for Thursday, June 12th. My doctor will be Dr. Shestak in Pittsburgh, PA. I...

This is a fantastic doctor who has a great team and really good bedside manner. I cannot say enough good things about him. Now be prepared - he often has plenty of residents and trainees with him and he has a habit of talking to them and not directly to you when you're being examined. It may feel a bit awkward to go around topless in front of so many people, but remember that he's teaching them and that this whole team will be around to help you. Take advantage of your time with him - if you have a question, do not be afraid to ask him. He will take the time to answer your questions and explain things to you, but you have to be the one to ask the questions in the first place. He knows what he's doing and is very good at it, so he's thinking about the whole picture and not necessarily the specific details that are worrying you. Come to your appointments prepared with your questions so that you can make the most of your appointment time. The initial appointments were not what I expected from descriptions from other friends who have had similar work done by other surgeons - you first meet with his PA and then him and his team. There was no discussion of the size of the implants or showing pictures of his before/after results; Dr. Shestak just asked me what cup size I hoped to be, asked some lifestyle questions, told me how some things would be difficult to fix thanks to my natural body shape (thanks, Grandma) and that was that. I pretty much left the whole thing in his hands (very hard for me to do given I'm a Type A control freak), but I felt confident that he knew best and would do good work. I'm very happy with my results and recommend him to anyone considering plastic surgery.

When You first meet with him, he is a little off putting and impersonal. As you go along he does get friendlier and more personable, almost as if yhe more time you invest in yourself, the more he invests. His PAs, Autumn and Colleen, always calls me back and worked hard to get my surgery approved. He was highly recommended by a friend of mine, who used to work for him. She didn't like him much but said I would have "Breasts only comparable to those God would create!" He answered any questions I had was up front about everything he did. No complaints.
Growing up, I always wanted BOOBS. I just had to have 'em... Be careful what you wish for! :-) By the time I was in 7th grade, I was a full C-cup. Then they got bigger... and bigger. I'm currently a 34E and HATE them! I've thought about having a breast reduction off and on for several years but thought I was too young for such a "drastic" surgery. Was not being able to...
