Breast Implants and Breast Augmentation Stories from our Visitors

If you have already read Nicole's Story, you have a pretty good idea what this section of the website is all about. After several women emailed their breast augmentation stories to us, we thought it would be great to have women share their full-length recovery stories after their breast implant surgeries for everyone's benefit. Thankfully, many women have contributed, some in more detail than others.

Here are the stories of our visitors. Many names have been changed for privacy. Where appropriate, there is detail in parentheses so you can decide if you are interested. Click on a name to read.

Breast Augmentation in Denver, CO


In 1998, I knew I wanted to have a Boob job. New at this whole thing and so excited I jumped into it with out doing research like I do now. So I go to this Doctor who I will leave un-named in Colorado and rushed right into surgery. I refuse to slander anyone who can not defend themselves. Even thought the photos clearly show how a good thing can go bad I will not post his name on any boards any where at any time. At first I was real happy with the results and even referred some people to him. I had a chest which I had clearly never had before didn't know anyone who had done so what was I going to compare it to.

I got tear dropped or anatomical shaped implants. Filled with saline 315 cc's Implants were textured; all of this was Doctors recommended by the Doctor. The size was fine, placement was bad and I hated the way they felt.

The surgery was horrible the pain was more then I ever thought it would be. I couldn't move for 4 days and sleeping was impossible. I wondered if it was ever going to be worth it. I didn't bruise I just hurt all over. I had given birth to 3 kids at this time with out drugs and this was far worse.

This is what I looked like, well with clothes and an underwire bra that would push those suckers together It wasn't bad or at least I though. As I said I had referred some of my friends and family to this same Doctor (and we still talk today) One of them lucked out and has had no problems as of yet. The other had problems right away. So she followed the yellow brick road right to the Wizard!!! She had such good things to say I figured I would go and see what he had to say… Well I left feeling more deformed then I thought I was, but hey the man was honest and as I know now that is one of THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS coming from a cosmetic surgeon. Remember none of them claim to be GOD and can only do what your own body will allow. I knew leaving his office I just had to have him fix me best he could.

I will share his name, as I have nothing but good to say about him. I found out I would qualify for a silicone study, I had severe ripples and plenty of scar tissue. So this was not a typical RE-DO for size or anything like that. I really trusted in this Doctor, and liked the fact I would be able to get silicone. With such little breast tissue to begin with I could always feel and see the implants clearly with the saline. Which until all the problems got pointed out to me was all I was concerned about.

I made an appointment a couple of weeks later, I was lucky I got him before he started getting booked weeks or even months out. I was so worried about the pain and discomfort I had suffered before and I was to head to the beach a week later I just needed to heal fast this time. The wizard gave me a whole vitamin plan to take for a full 2 weeks prior to THE DAY, the pain was nothing!!! I mean I cleaned house and played with my dog the next day. The only thing that went bad was this lousy Colorado weather snowed us all in for days and I had to remove my own stitches. I thought I was catching a plane to Florida and even the airport closed. Not the Doctors fault (remember I told you he is not GOD!)

So I ended up with breasts that are much closer together (yes, I would have liked more cleavage) but the other doctor already made the pockets so we had to work with what we had. They feel wonderful and natural. The scars are barely visible (with the 1st surgery they were really bad) I am much happier with the outcome now. When I wear a bra they look great. I hardly ever have to wear one though the stay right where the good Doctor put them. LOL I like the bounce I have now with the silicone. This time I got smooth round implants filled to 400 cc's I needed a wider implant to fill that gap.

I must say if you are considering altering your body in any way. NEVER, NEVER rush into anything. Do your research, spend the extra money and go to as many consults as you need. What's a consult fee compared to a revision fee???

Ok so KUDOS to the Doctor… Thanks so much!. My husband thinks I am now a Plastic Surgery Junkie because now I got my lips done At New you Plastic Surgery

Not only is the Doctor great his entire staff is wonderful, knowledgeable and willing to take the time to answer any questions or address any concerns you have.
