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

I never thought that I would get a breast enlargement, but after having 2 children, my boobs practically deflated and I hated the way I looked in and out of clothes. So I decided to look into getting breast augmentation surgery.

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

My husband didn't seem to care either way, which helped me not feel pressured into getting it done. Other than that, my family seemed really supportive in my decision as long as I was.

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

1800mySurgeon helped tremendously! All the information I was looking for was available right away and if not, it was easily accessible. Plus, the 1800mySurgeon.com has a ton of information on different doctors which helped make my decision easier on deciding which one to choose.

Can you describe your surgery and recovery?

The surgery went well. I had a local anesthetic because it was cheaper and just as effective in my opinion. I did wake up once during the surgery but they immediately put me back to sleep. The pain level after surgery wasn't too bad, just when I tried to lift things that I shouldn't have been (like my 2 kids!) I have a 2 year old and a 10 month old, so it was really hard not lifting them too much but it was bad. I got the pain drip inserted for after the surgery but it was completely a waste of money in my opinion because one came out immediately and I couldn't tell the difference in pain from that one and the one that still had the tube in it with the pain medicine.

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

Take your time picking out a doctor and make sure to take a long look at all of their before and after photos of their patients because they are a good indication of what you are going to look like if you decide to get the procedure done. Also look at more than just one doctor. You're going to be spending lots of money so make sure you're getting what you pay for!

How do you feel about your result?

I'm pretty happy with the result. One of my boobs was a little droopier than the other to begin with and I was hoping it wouldn't look as bad after the surgery, but it's still droopy. And I don't care for how far apart they are. My real boobs weren't that far apart before so I don't know why these ones are. Other than that, I love them. I look a thousand times better in clothes now so I'm happy about that.
