Best Thing I Ever Did for Myself - Folsom, CA

I developed early at age 12. I alternated my entire life between a large C and small D. My breasts always sagged somewhat, as my tissue is very dense. In a nutshell, I was always embarrased by the sagging, even in my 20s. When I hit my mid-40s, for whatever reason, my breasts got even bigger (menopause, hormones?) I gained 15 pounds and voila!

Did your "parenthesis" go away completely or just soften? I love the result under my eyes, but didn't think it did as good a job on my folds around the mouth. My doc is conservative also, (never have to worry about looking like... READ COMMENT

Wow -- that's surprising regarding Botox. I've had numerous surgeons tell me that they have had problems with Botox under the eyes -- drooping eyes, temporary paralysis, etc. Botox is one of the most potent neuro-toxins from what I... READ COMMENT
