I’m a 40 Caucasian 32 D cup and I always had kind of sagged breast (may be to a less degree when I was young).
I was not looking for a bigger cup, I’m not OK with the idea of placing some balloons under my skin and carrying around more weight. I was not very keen of the scares left after a regular breast lifting procedure so the only solution to me was this kind of unique procedure - ultimate breast lifting.
As a cautious, sane person I was a little puzzled by with the idea that Dr. Gary Horndesk is the only person in the world that would do the procedure, and that it’s sound more like a marketing scam that a real, professional technique, but based on the reviews on this site and with a little bit or faith (or desperation) I went for it.
Now I’m two weeks after the procedure, per dr. instructions the final shaping takes about 1 month but I’m happy with the results so far.
My opinion about the doctor and his team:
Dr. Gary Horndesk is very professional, and has a lot of experience (he’s been doing the procedure for 10 years now).
He may not be the compassionate doctor that you need (but hey, is not we are sick looking for a cure, is more that we are going to him willingly to get cut and sew).
And he is not talkative. Be aware of that. I did not get any lengthy presentation on what the procedure is like, what to expect, etc, etc but more of a – do you have any questions?
Make sure you do your homework and prepare a list of questions to be asked.
What I asked – how exactly is done: (not a technical description) - so he will cut your nipples, fold some flesh under the muscle.
What I did not asked then but only after – the procedure is done using Ethibond, a permanent suture.
About the procedure: I think I have a medium to high pain tolerance but the pain immediately after the procedure and the following hours was pretty sharp. I never had any surgery, but I C section, and this was worst then I C-section.
And the worst part is that I got a depression right after the surgery. We all seen in movies how after a procedure the doctor is removing bandages and miracle – a beautiful shaped nose is ready to be taken to the streets.
It is not the case with this procedure – after the surgery I was left with two square shaped squashed pillows with no projection. And while the doctor and the assistant were happy with the results I started wondering, in my paranoia, if I made the biggest mistake of my life, and If I will be left looking like a monster just because I was so vain. And I was sure that the pain I had is not normal, but was because something went wrong. I’m writing all this so you will be aware about the post-surgery blue. It is real and it ain’t pretty.
Now two weeks after the surgery my breast are deflating I can see them shaping. More to come…

3 weeks update

They are deflating, getting closer to the final results. Perfect? No, but compared with what I started with... certainly much better. I can only think at all the pretty cloths I will be wearing this summer.

not so sure right now

10 mths after, the improvement is not that big, I want more upper body. I will talk with Elisa and the doctor this week to see what I can be done.

before after

not sure

quick phone conversation with the doctor

I was offered 3 options:
- full lifting with nipple and horizontal scar (extra charge)
- another mini UBL for more lifting (extra charge only 2k this time)
- nipple reduction in the office, with no charge.
I think I would go with 3rd option, I do not have the guts to take the risks of a new procedure, when you read all these horror stories...
I'm was also told by the doctor these are the normal results for a mini UBL, so while I'm happy nothing went horribly wrong I think I was oversold I I can't find any resemblance between my results and the results presented on his website.
