5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Worth Every Penny

I'm a 24 yo F that has always had small breasts. I was a 34 A (probably could have still been wearing training bras) and I had 365cc silicone implants placed. I'm now in a C cup and I could not be more pleased with the results! They are seriously perfect. Dr. Reath is amazing and is office/staff are wonderful. I wish I would have done this years ago. I would recommend him to anyone and...

Changing My Life

Since childhood I have struggled with my weight. At 15 years old, my love for food had me looking down at a scale of 220lbs. That was my wakeup call. In 6 months I lost 70lbs. Sadly I was still very unhappy with my body. The image I had in my head that pushed me to change my lifestyle, eat better, and workout was not the image staring back at me in the mirror. At 19 I had my son. With...

41 Yrs Old, and Wanted a Change - Knoxville, TN

I have never been happy with the size of my breasts. So in discussing it over with my husband he said if that's what you want to do then research it and do it. So that's just what I did. I read many reviews and found that I wanted to meet with Dr. Reath. After doing so I felt it was the right decision. His staff, especially Mandi is very kind and helpful. I had my surgery a month ago now...

This Old House........Knoxville, TN

The remodeling of this old house….. Here is my story. I am in my fifties and the mother of several grown children who underwent a full abdominoplasty, and a mastopexy with silicone implant placement 4 weeks ago. I had wanted to have the abdominoplasty for the last 40 years, and now seemed like a good time to proceed. My husband and I are in the medical profession so we did extensive r...

20 Years Old. No Kids. Silicone Breast Implants. Knoxville, TN

Most of the reviews i have read online about breast implants (and trust me, i read A LOT of reviews) were either from girls in their 40's getting lifts and implants due to aging or girls in their 20's getting implants due to having children. Well im not 40 and i do not have children. I was just a young girl with small boobs and terrible self confidence. It has always been in the back of my...

Breast Implants: How to Know When You're Going Too Big

A recent phenomenon that I have noticed is that women are choosing larger and larger breast implants when having breast augmentation. This is something that has gradually increased over the years that I have been doing breast surgery. And I am left with two questions: is there an upper limit in sight? And, how big is too big? About twenty years ago, the volume of implants that were usually chosen was less than 300 cc. And it was quite rare to go much above that or even into...

Why Social Media Should Stay Out Of The Operating Room

My office has had a lot of fun embracing social media. And, it has been educational, informative and fun for our patients as well. I say this because I am about to suggest a limit on social media as it applies to plastic surgery. Put simply: social media should stay out of the operating room. Recently I read a story about a plastic surgeon who, with the permission of the patient, was using Facebook, Twitter Instagram and Vine to essentially live-broadcast an operation. The...
