5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

So Happy I Did It! - Rapid City, SD

I had debated for several years whether or not to have this done. Ever since I noticed a sore back, neck and shoulder pain, and that I was getting exhausted doing the dishes or standing, I knew something had to be done, but I wasn't sure what. I also knew that my breasts were HUGE and I had the most difficult time finding a bra that 1) fit 2) was comfortable and 3) had enough support. In...

30 Wanting Some Fullness and Perk Back - Rapid City, SD

So-always wanted bigger boobs...BUT after babies felt like I NEEDED them :-) I was a deflated b and wanted some fullness in the top. I ended up going with the 550CC gummy bear sientra implants AND it was best choice! Under breast incision. No complications AT ALL! Would do it over again in a heartbeat!

3 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation Rapid City, SD

Overall I'm happy with my choice however I feel I could have gotten better results elsewhere. At the time of my surgery I was 22 years old. I was a 34 A pre op. Post op I am a 34 C. I always wanted to have the procedure done and it's been an amazing relief to finally feel more feminine and confident.

All for Me - Rapid City, SD

Dr. Snyder at Black Hills Plastic Surgery did an amazing job. Her and the staff gave me all the information I needed to make the best decision for myself and helped me to understand all my options. They knew that it was important for me to feel comfortable running and exercising, so a reasonable size was important. I also wanted to look healthy and realistic. With their help I chose the...

560cc Silicone Round Smooth

I've always been unimpressed with my breast size. Finally decided to do something about it when I turned 37. Dr Snyder was amazing as was her staff. The nurses were excellent in helping me to make a decision about size. I still worried that I was going too big but I was reassured that I had picked a size that was very complimentary to my body type. Went with a subglandular placement as I had...

My only regret - I didn't do it sooner

Dr. Mary Snyder is the best!! I would recommend her to any woman who needs this done. She made me feel so good about myself and made me my breasts look like a 16 year old...I am 61! Needless to say no more back and headaches from carry around those extra pounds. Thanks again Dr Mary and everyone in your office and the Black Hills Surgery Center. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.

34G to (Hopefully) 34D or 34C

Currently a 34G, 28 years old and tired of the neck and back pain. I am nervous about what my breasts will look like after the procedure, but so very excited to finally not have this massive weight on my chest anymore! I was a DD in high school and have never been small chested, but I am an active adult and want a chest that doesn't get in my way anymore! When I look at pictures of other...

28, Two C-Sections and Weight Loss.

I honestly have no idea what to expect, I am nervous! I will also be having a brachioplasty (arm reduction?) at the same time, a breast reduction in December (I'm currently a 34-G) and a thigh reduction in January to remove the loose skin. Nervous but excited and hoping to finally feel more comfortable in my own skin. I am having some major fear and anxiety about my surgery. I have barely...
