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

I inherited small breasts. After 4 births not only were they small but they were embarrassing. It has always really mattered to me how I look. I workout and eat right and take good care of my skin but I had no control of my small breasts. With a recent divorce and my now being over 45, I decided it was time do something for me. Dr. Ptak has a fabulous reputation and was a wonderful Doctor.

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

I only told two of my closest friends and they were both very supportive. One helped me through the surgery by driving and being there for anything I might need. The other had the same surgery done several years ago and was great support.

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

1800MySurgeon helped by contacting me frequently through the decision process. They helped me find a very good surgeon and then helped me find financing. The patient coordinators at 1800mySurgeon answered questions and alleviated fears. They were very helpful.

Can you describe your surgery and recovery?

I had a very easy surgery. I have spoken to others that did not have such an easy recovery. No one was even aware that I had the surgery because I recovered so nicely. I had one breast slightly larger that the other, and even though Dr. Ptak worked to minimize this it still happened. He has already begun to make the necessary plans to do even more to lessen the difference. He gave suggestions and is continuing to work with me.

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

I believe it needs to be a decision based on self-esteem and money. If you can afford to correct image issues that affect the way you feel about yourself, you should search a qualified surgeon with the help of 1800mySurgeon, and do it!

How do you feel about your result?

I am very pleased! I feel better about myself and the way I look. I no longer have to worry about being embarrassed when I meet Mr. Right.
