Amazing exeprience from start to finish! (28yrs, 5ft4in, 96lb) -- Sientra 250cc Smooth, Round, Moderate Profile - Boston, MA

Hello ladies, First, I really can't believe that I'm writing as I'm waiting for my surgery to happen. My story is kinda complicated one, so I won't go too much into details. 6 months ago I started considering BA since opportunity for it arose, and I have had small breast since I was a 14 years...

Very Happy with Results. Only Two Sessions. - Newton Center, MA

I got this Groupon some time ago, and it was about to expire, so I had to use it. As I wrote in my title, I really wish I went through the last session. The only reason I decided to stop after my second session is because it was my first time, and I wasn't sure how painful it could be. How... READ MORE

"Not worth it" with Dr Bentkover -- Juvederm UltraPlus (Lips) - Worcester, MA

Today I got Juvaderm UltraPlus (1 syringe) in my lips, and Radiesse (1 syringe -- 0.5 on each side) in my nasolabial folds. I will be taking pictures in the next few days as well as a month after these procedures, and I will post them eventually along with my thoughts. I will try to be as much... READ MORE

There is Improvement in Appearance, but Not Completely So (Yet) -- Juvederm Ultra - Wellesley, MA

I saw Dr Kapadia on March 31st for the first time. I went to see him because I was concerned with my bruising and swelling from the previous procedure. In my previous procedure I got 1 syringe of Juvederm Ultra Plus by Dr Bentkover. Apart from bruising/swelling and immediately visible... READ MORE

I Got the Lips That I Have Always Wanted! Dr. Darrow Nailed It! Boston, MA

This was my third attempt to get the lips I have always wanted. I would lie if I told you that I wasn't scared of bruising or bad results. Being Dr. Darrow's patient for almost 2 years, I would also say that I was very comfortable trying this again. He did amazing job! Anyway, I didn't prepare... READ MORE

Upper Blepharoplasty with Dr. Darrow - Boston, MA

I finally get to the point of writing this review. Tomorrow I will have upper blepharoplasty done by Dr. Darrow under local anesthesia. I didn't prepare as much as I did for my breast augmentation surgery, but I stayed away from ibuprofen and alcohol (I don't drink anyway), and I ate healthy... READ MORE

Radiesse 1 Syringe (Nasolabial Folds -- 0.5 Each) - Worcester, MA

I have decided to make a separate reviews for two procedures that I got on the same day. I got Juvederm UltraPlus in my lips, and Radiesse in my nasolabial folds. The procedure itself wasn't as bad, and I saw results instantly. I didn't have any bruising or swelling for the first 3 days. None... READ MORE

Questions from Nikki_2014

I'm having a BA in a week. I feel mild pain in my left breast where my cysts are. Is that an issue?

I have been told that I have two small cysts in my left breasts. I have PCOS. Because of this hormone imbalance, my breasts gets very tender and swollen around my period.  READ MORE

Bruising/swelling and lumps after Juvederm lip injection. Should I be worried? (Photo)

First and foremost, thank you so much for reading and responding. 3 days ago I got 1 syringe of Juvederm UltraPlus in my lips. This is my first time getting lip injections, so... READ MORE

Pressure and lump 3 days after Radiesse. Is this a normal reaction or should I be worried about it?

3 days ago I got Radiesse in my nasolabial folds, and I had no bruising or swelling whatsoever. That made me happy since that was my first filler ever. But yesterday, on my... READ MORE

Can anybody explain why lumps are formed during and after Juvederm lip injections?

Can anybody explain why lumps are formed during and after Juvederm lip injections? I know there are many factors that can cause that, like how fast the product is injected, the... READ MORE

I'm confused and devastated. It seems that I failed again in choosing the right injector. Or is it just my bad luck? (Boston)

Can you PLEASE share your opinions in what is the BEST approach in choosing a skilled facial injector? I'm confused with all those certifications, professional medical... READ MORE

Sorry I didn't respond to this earlier! What did you end up getting? How do you feel? READ COMMENT

It depends. Larger breasts that are saggy, yes, I agree -- makes you look older. Extra large implants look unnatural. Not good either. Yes. I looked like a teen. That is why I got this surgery done. Although my breasts will change if... READ COMMENT

Thank you. Scars take a long time to fade. Try to be patient. My scars are still visible even after 2 years. Just takes time for our skin to recover. But either way, it looks good. It doesn't bother me much. READ COMMENT

Exactly. Very swollen. Your pecs were lifted from your ribcage. Major injury. Of course you will be swollen. And it will take some time to calm down. So, don't worry, really. I don't know how long it takes, I can't remember, but I can... READ COMMENT

Relax. You are swollen. They shrink once they settle down. Don't worry. Focus on recovery. Trust me... READ COMMENT
