Share your story about why you considered and ultimately had cosmetic surgery.

My breast shape had changed and I was conscious of wearing clothes to disguise this. I tried various exercise regimes but to no avail. As a last resort I decided on surgery and after finding my surgeon it made the whole process easier. I did not feel pressured into having it done- he was always available for advice.

How did your friends and family feel about your decision to have a procedure?

My family and friends were very supportive but I researched everything before letting them know. I knew they would be concerned so I thought if I could give them more information it would help.

How did 1800MySurgeon help you through the process of finding a qualified plastic surgeon?

During my research I discovered this 1800mySurgeon site. I had pretty much decided who was going to do my surgery but I communicated with 1800mySurgeon to make sure I was making the correct decision.

Can you describe your surgery and recovery?

My surgery was, fortunately, uneventful. I was in the surgical center for approximately 3 hours. Dr. Gartner and the staff were so friendly, approachable and very professional. My post-op period has been easy and the follow up appointments have been regular which helps if you have any questions along the way. Pain was bearable but pain killers are at hand if required.

What advice would you give to another person considering your same procedure?

Do your homework! Contact 1800mySurgeon for advice about Plastic Surgeons, even if you already have one in mind. Make sure that the surgeon you visit is approachable and answers any questions you may have. Make your own decisions regarding type, size of implant, etc. Do not be forced into anything. Listen to the advice given.

How do you feel about your result?

I love my new shape. I feel a lot more confident. I can clothes shop without having to take my shape into consideration. I'm also more comfortable when bending over, etc. as I don't have to think about my breasts as they were.
