As I matured, and lost my "baby fat" my breasts shrank to a 32C (my happy size), but the shape was never ideal. They sagged and the areola were always larger than I liked. Fast forward to me now, at 38, after having three children (last... READ MORE

38 Years Old- Small Amount of Lower Back Fat. Englewood, NJ

If you have an extra $1200 to spend and VERY realistic expectations you will be happy with this procedure. I did the top of my buttocks where I had some bulges that hung over my panty line and wouldn't go away no matter how much exercise I did.

Best for Botox Not for Other Things - New York, NY

I have been going to Dr. Brandt for 6 years. He is the best there is for Botox. He does it in areas I would never think to ask for and the whole effect is so natural no one would ever guess.

However, I saw him for pigmentation/dark spots several times and he was always pushing new (more expensive) lasers... READ MORE

Gemini Laser for Age Spots and Pigmentation on Olive-colored Skin - New York, NY

My dermatologist said Gemini was best for me because I have olive skin. He also prescribed tri-luma. Have been avoiding the sun for two years now. Use 50+ sunscreen, and wear hats. I know this...

When you are excited and anxious about a procedure, even thorough information can go into one ear and out the other. I'm so grateful to have these forums to reassure me that my concerns are normal, and where I can ask follow up... READ COMMENT

That's so exciting! I know it so much money, but figured it's better to do it right the first time around than go cheaper and risk getting more surgery to fix a mistake. Keep me updated! Good luck!!! READ COMMENT

Thanks for your words of encouragement. I think not looking in the mirror for a while is the best advice at this point. READ COMMENT
