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

I considered plastic surgey because I felt very uncomfortable with myself. My clothes never fit right and I was embarassed to go to the beach. It all started this summer when I didn't want to put a bathing suit on. I felt very uncomfortable going to the beach with my new boyfriend. I thought having this surgey would defintlely boost my self-confidience in every way. I can buy all sorts of shirts now without worrying about falling out the shirt. I was very nervous about this whole prodecure. I was worrying about what people were going to say at work, and all around me. In the end they all supported my descision and they have been very nice. The doctor was very nice and made me feel comfortable. I think if you are thinking about this prodecure you should go for it. I am very happy with my results.

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

My friends were very happy. They have been wanting this prodecure for a long time. All of my freinds are very small. All of them said they would defintely do the prodecure. They gave me tons of support throughout the whole procedure. My mom was one of the most understanding people. My mom shared stories of when she was my age. She was even smaller then me. She said 20 years ago she would have done the same thing. She understood what I was going through. She was totally thrilled with my results. She didn't want me to go through what she went through. I used to cry to her all the time that "it wasn't fair", especially when you see that people younger then you have a bigger chest.

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

When I called 1800mySurgeon I was very happy. They kept calling and making sure everything was going O.K. They kept following through with everything. They wanted to make sure that I was satisfied. I felt confident going through 1800mySurgeon. I had called other surgeons and none of them called back and made me feel comfortable like they did at 1800mySurgeon. They were on top of things and were very organized. The patient coordinator worked with my every step of the way. I told her what I was looking for and she recommened some Board Certified Plastic Surgeons who were very experienced. She made me feel very comfortable about this situation and not embrassed.

Can you describe your surgery and recovery?

My surgey went very well. I did not have a good first day because of the anesthesia. The next day I was in a lot of pain as well. I took medications and it helped a little. It was very hard to move and walk for the first 3-5 days, but I knew it was all worth it. The surgey took about an hour. I was very nervous but it was all worth it. I'm still very sore and still in some pain, but as the days go on I'm getting better.

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

My advice is to be 100% sure this is what you want to do. I was a little scared after I got it done. I felt like people knew and it got me nervous. You have to be very strong when it comes to this. People can be very cruel and mean. In my personal experience I told everyone I was getting it done. I didn't want to go back to work and have people staring at me. I let it out before people started talking. It made a big difference in my life. I am 100% more condfident in my clothes now. I couldn't wait to go shopping for a bathing suit. At this point it's been almost a month and I'm getting better with everything. I'm still not healed but I still feel better about eveything. I can't wait to see how they look when their healed. This surgery will give you so much more confidence in yourself.

How do you feel about your result?

My results are amazing. I'm a very short person and they fit my body perfectly. Right now my breasts are still in the process of healing but I'm still very satisfied of what I see right now. They look very natural on my body. Even in T-shirts it looks very good. Now I don't have to worry about my top anymore. I can't wait until summertime, by then they will be healed. I'm just exicted about buying new clothes and a new life!
