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

For years I have felt unhappy with the size of my breasts. I would look for cute tops, but they just didn't look good on me. I would look around at other women and be envious of their breasts if they had more than me.

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

Two of my friends had already had it done themselves, which was a big help in considering the surgery. My other friends were very excited for me. My 7 year old daughter cried. (I guess she thought new breasts meant a new mommy). There were mixed feelings with the rest of my family.

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

I actually got in touch with 1800mySurgeon to check on another doctor's credentials. They asked if I would like another referral to another doctor for a second opinion. 1800mySurgeon was great, because at this time I was looking around for a plastic surgeon that was well qualified and that I felt comfortable with.

Can you describe your surgery and recovery?

The surgery was not scary for me at all. It was done in a very comfortable surgery center. The procedure took 90 minutes, with a 90 minute recovery as well. I am writing this 9 days later and I feel very well. Only minimal discomfort at this time. I only took the pain medications for 5 days.

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

Read up on the procedure first. Then start researching doctors. Please make sure that they are Certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery, and then go and meet with them. Don't feel that you have to take the first doctor you see. Consider the procedure, doctor, and price. I visited with 3 doctors before I found the one I was happy with. You will know when you've found the right doctor (including feeling comfortable with his staff and your whole surroundings).

How do you feel about your result?

I am so happy with Dr. Solomon and his staff. The procedure went very well. The recovery time is going much better than I actually expected. He did an absolute wonderful job on my breasts!! My friends look at them, and they are astonished by how well they look after just one week.
