5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift
I have been very aware of the unusual shape and unevenness in my breasts since I developed and I have spent many agonizing years doing everything I can to cover myself up and blend in. Even staying in bad relationships because I was too insecure and self loathing to believe I deserved better. I can now walk by a mirror and not want to cover up and cry. I owe my new outlook on myself and my...
I had this surgery performed because I was very insecure about how small my breasts were. I didn't feel like a woman. I felt like I grew up, but my body never did. I'm SO HAPPY I did this. I still tell everyone I know it's the best investment I have ever made! I am SO confident now!

Plastic Surgery was a big step for me. I recognized I wanted to go to a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon but how would I choose the right person. When I began my search, I was working outside of the USA. I emailed inquiries to many physicians throughout the USA and received mostly automated responses of "Please call our office at ..." That was until I discovered Dr. Y. He and his office staff responded immediately to my emails, answered all of my questions, set up appointment times, and kept in contact with me until I arrived for my appointment. It was simply amazing. He is personable and realistic in his approach. I never felt rushed during appointments. Preoperatively, we choose the appropriate size for my breast implants. He offered his expert advice but also took into consideration my thoughts. He patiently waited in the room until all of my questions/concerns were addressed. With each appointment, his patient approach never changed and I considered myself very fortunate to have discovered this talented professional. Four weeks from my surgical date, my breasts look natural and beautiful. Twenty four hours following the surgery, I used the prescription analgesics he prescribed to control the pain but after the first day, I was easily able to control the pain with Ibuprofen. My pencil thin scar is approximately 2 cm in length and even at this point it is barely noticeable. Without hesitation, I recommend Dr. Y and his wonderful office staff for all of your plastic surgery needs. I would go to no other and will return to his office for all of my future plastic surgical procedures.
5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
After having let myself go, I finally lost the 80 pounds I had gained over 15 years. My body looked great with clothes on, but has soon as they came off, there was nothing to be excited about. It didn't matter what I did, I could not get rid of my 'apron', and sagging breasts.I decided to have a full tummy tuck, a breast lift combined with a reduction, and implants (both surgeries were...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Removal
I had implants 10 years ago and it didn't turn out the way I wanted them. Dr Y was able to take them out and reshape my breasts so I feel normal and sexy again. All my clothes fit me now and I am excited for summer to come and wear a lot less clothes.
5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision
I wasn't happy with my first doctor at all! I was just a number to him and his staff. I wanted to look better and feel better about myself.
5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
I had a vertical C-section scar that was ugly, embarassing and surrounded by uneven pockets of fat.
5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction
There were no cons only pros. I did it because of the shoulder, neck and headache pain I was in and had been since a young adult. My insurance finally said they would pay for it and I went for it. Not even a second thought. I would do it again in a heart beat.

Teenage women (those under 18 years old) account for about 2 to 3% of all patients presenting to plastic surgeons offices to discuss cosmetic surgery. Personally, I have seen an increase in inquiries as well as consultations from teenage patients. Some of the more common reasons young women come in for cosmetic surgery is for breast augmentation, liposuction, and rhinoplasty. This is controversial. The issues involved include maturity, decision-making ability, safety, and legal aspects...
Start by looking in the right places. 1. First and foremost (did I mention this is important), narrow your search by only looking at board certified plastic surgeons. It is unfortunate, but there are individuals whom are misleading and you need to ask two
