I went with Dr. Hulsey in Bowling Green, KY. Total cost was around $5,000. This covered follow-ups and the consultation as well. This was 4+ years ago. I am extremely pleased to this day. We went with as large as I could go with what he had to work with as far as breast tissue and skin. Even though I had breast fed two babies 10 1/2 months each, you could almost count my ribs through my breast. The cost wasn't as much of an issue as was my self confidence and security or insecurity. I was the one that had to see myself when the clothes came off behind closed doors. My muscles were very sore for 2-3 weeks, but I was mobile. My husband and I slept in different beds for the first week or so because he was afraid he might roll over and hurt me. He would have to help me out of bed in the mornings also. You don't realize how much you use your chest muscles when you are getting out of bed! I would do it all over again in a heartbeat. Hope you find as much success!!

about how much does it cost in total?
was recovery hard and long or were you able to get up and do your thing right away?
After 4 kids and breastfeeding i feel it would help my self confidence to get my boobs done and i think it would please my husband though its not just for him its for me to.
i'm just nervous/scared to get it done and about the cost
any help is appreciated
Not who you asked,but my surgery at Dr. Schantz was like total $6000.,I think. Something like that.Something to keep in mind is extra cost incase of complications...they do sometimes arise and costs additional to your inital breast surgery. I got back to doing my regular stuff in like a week or so...some things may take a little longer,like heavy lifting,and that kind of thing.The website I posted above has SO much info on it about BAs and will bw helpful in finding a doctor,what to expect and pretty much any other questions you may have.

Probably should not get in on this.Have you seen the blonde on TV shows recently?Ms.California?She is really pretty and has a great shape.But,as for me, really, this old man always thinks the real thing is the best.Understand ,if you are unbalanced,maybe help would equalize up the clothing.But still prefer the real thing.
By the way,California had augmentation.What can you do with artificial ones?
You know,I can understand what you're saying,but sometimes women have breast that are not exactly the same size on both sides.A Breast Augmentation can help make them even.Then there are women who have had breast cancer,and once they get healthy,maybe they want breast again.Have you thought of this? These kinds of issues can really weigh on a woman's mind.Since you're a man these issues probably wouldn't enter your mind.There's more than one reason for a woman to want breast augmentation,not that there's ANYTHING wrong with making herself feel better about herself just having bigger breast.It's good you're happy with the 'real' boobs.Ours are real,too.They're REALLY on our bodies and they're really BIG!!!BTW most men come to really appreciate the augmented breast once they get to touch/feel them.I know my husband was Always decent before my BA,however my boobs get alot more attention NOW.He cant feel the implant at all-they're just bigger and in his/my opinion better.

Wow, it was very serendipitous to stumble onto this sight...I just e-mailed Waldman/Schantz today to ask some questions prior to scheduling a consult for breast augmentation. Any of Dr. Schantz's patients have Mentor 'gummy bear' implants? If so I am curious to hear if you are pleased with them, and what kind of incision/profile you have. I just finished breastfeeding my second child for 18 months in December and my boobs are a wreck! I went from a small but perky B down to an A, maybe a very small B. Any info anyone would like to share would be greatly appreciated!!:)

I had my first BA in 1994, then I went larger in 2001. Don't even think twice about it. DO IT! It is absolutely the best thing I have ever done for myself. I was always about an A or maybe a B, but I am now a D and in some bras a double D. I love it, and so does my husband. It boosted my self confidence 1000 times over what I ever had before. My clothes all look so much better on me. It feels so good to feel out my tops, to have cleavage etc. Andrew Moore in Lex. did mine, but Dr. Schantz is good also as my friend went to him. Like I said, just do it. You won't regret it. Every day you wait is a day you could be enjoying your new boobies! Also, to anyone who doesn't know, you can finance then now, thru Doctorssayyes.net . Steven Schantz is the doctor in this area they will send you to. I know someone who financed thru them and their payment was only 150.00 a month.

I was at Dr. Schantz's office on the 21st of May...He told me "that company you went through went out of business"...being Doctorssayyes.net . Just check and see if they're still in business. My payment was $174.00 an month-my last payment is in June!! Yeah!! I agreee with you about feeling better about myself and looking better in my clothes.I had this done strictly for me,and I dont regret it one bit.
There are MANY companies available though.Best advice I can give you is DO YOUR RESEARCH,no matter who you choose to have perform surgery on you.
Prospective patient....I think you'll really like Dr.Schantz when you meet him.He is a really patient,informative guy who like I said in a former post,kinda beomes your friend. He listens to you and gives excellent advice,take sall the time you need to have all questions asked and never makes you feel like he's trying to rush you out the door.His main goal is to make sure you're happy with your results.Good luck!!

My mom used Dr Hulsey in bowling green for a breast reduction , it looks terrible, even 10 yrs later the scars are so terrible. They are still purple, look like veins, she cant even wear tank tops he cut so far back toward her arm pit. I had to have a cyst cut out of the top of my head by him as well and he left an exposed nerve. He has terrible bedside manner in my opinion and does terrible work.His nurse that used to work there has even told us that we would never believe the things she has seen there.So please be careful if you are even thinking about using him. I am sure many people may give him a good review , but do u really want to take the chance to be one of them that has to give him a bad one. Both my mother and I have spent alot of time and money trying to see if a dr could fix the mess he made.

Actually,no they dont,well ofcourse they can sag,if they're put over the chest muscle.When they are put under the muscle,the muscle will help hold the implant in place...Most of the time they are more perkier and stay where they belong.Also,if they're not so grotestly huge,they wont sag.The weight large implants probably would stretch the skin quiet a bit,but if you use common sense when you choose the implant size and fill,they should still look fine as you age.How many older ladies with real boobs do you see sag? My point exactly.The boobs with implants stand up more.

This is exactly what I menat by do your research.You are the one who has to live with the results of someone else's work.Make sure you see former patients;even ask to speak with former patients.If they're decent at all,they'll have photos to see and patients you can talk with.I hope so much you and your mother can find the help you need to fix your problems.

Hello Happy,
You sound just like me! I am 5'10, 170 also and interested in DD breasts. I really think they look fantastic on chicks in a bikini sprawled out across the hood of a car in photos online, but I am going into grad school to become a doctor and my concern is not being able to look modest and conservative during times when I want to. Do you find that you have any trouble finding clothing that somewhat doesnt draw attention directly to your chest? I am doing my research for the surgery now and am nervous. I would greatly appreciate any info any of you that have had the proceedure already could give me!
I can only say to you that I am a man. I can immediately see if they are made of silicone.
It's a real turn off....I'm sorry but that is my
reaction. Can't help it. Some women, but very few need to do something with their breasts.
don't under estimate the fact that "not perfect" is often very attractive! "Perfect" is for no-one to be. Perfect in this sense is an artificial standard created by God knows who...lack of self-confidence is a very big market for many.
Stay natural, eat healthy food (instead) and do excercise. The rest then comes by itself for most.
Body fixation is contracted by very many not knowing themselves that that is what they are really suffering from.

As I stated before,it might not be about trying to be perfect,as you say.I moight have to do with a birth defect,asymetry of breast,which can weigh heavily on a woman's mind(and dont lie,men can see THAT a mile way!), breast cancer,or it could be that some women just want bigger boobs. I doubt very seriously that the women having BA really care if certain men like it or not.Most women I know who've had it done do it for THEMSELVES,not for a man,anyways.I think if a woman has had cancer,or severre asymetry would definetly know what they have/are sufferinf from.If a woman wants this doen to feel better about herself,then no man is going to make her feel bad for doing so.I personally had it done for a reason I stated above,and my husband happens to like them.He tells me he cant feel the implant(mine are saline) and I am MUCH happier with them. It has nothing to do with self esteem either,I had great self esteem before the BA,and though more men/women look at me(men appreciate;never had a guy tell me they were ugly or looked bad yet!,SOME women with jealousy,some women with curiousity)I dont think my self confidence has moved at all,in either direction.I dont flaunt my breast either.Im not that kind of person.As I said,I did it for ME.You,being a man,have the right to your opinion,but I'd say you are in the minority.Ofcourse,no one thinks Tiple Ds or Fs or GG are attractive on anyone's body,but a C or D cup can make many women look more porportionate.

You have my full sympathy - and as you say (and which I also did)- there are very good reasons too to do something with breasts (and other body parts to of course - being attributable to desease or accident or a birth defect. Initially that was the focus for the plastic surgery. But then it developed and became a big "industry". I guess wildly when I say that maybe as much as 60-75 % of the surgeries in this field is in fact "unnecessary".....bu t amongst them the mental reasons may be strong enough for the person
to have it done after all. it is not easy to be a human these days - but we make up some difficulties for ourselves too...that are not quite real. Just look at many actors.....and "celebrities" with breast surgeries of the unnecessary kinds. some of them insanely unnecessary too. Everyone decides for herself. Being a man I can only stay on the sideline and watch - with or without a personal opinion. You just follow your own conviction of what is the right thing for you to do.
Good luck!

I can say, speaking as a breast man, I don't care for them. The newer ones, and the tear drops look ok, but I can spot fake ones 9 out of 10. And it's a total turnoff. I can see a woman who is a knockout in every other way, and if she's got fake ones, it's an automatic downer. I've seen some that look really great, but they're still a downer, because they feel like nerf balls. Soft on the outside, hard in the middle. I can see it if you are mismatched, or have cosmetic issues, but as long as your natural breast are proportional, I'd leave them be. I've always cared more about proper proportion than actual breast size.

I drove over 4 hours just to get Dr.Schantz to do my tummy tuck. I wouldnt trade my results for anything. He talked to me and treated me like he had known me my whole life. I had a dehiscence on one side (my fault) and he got me right in and took care of me. I had his cellphone # just for reasons like this, and was more than glad to instruct me what to do from his home. I dont think you will be unhappy if you go there, and if you are he will fix it..

I am 35 5'2" 105 pounds. And no, petite women like me usually aren't blessed with large breasts. I've always been self conscious about being small, but even more so now that I have lost a huge amount of what breast tissue I did have from breastfeeding my youngest for 18 months and I have almost nothing left. I am an extremely intelligent, attractive and independent woman but I've always felt a little less like a woman because of the size of my breasts. I had very nice full C's while I was breast feeding and I liked having them. Why would you begrudge a woman that wants to do something for herself? If you really thought a woman was a 'knockout in every other way' but you weren't interested in her because she chose to have a breast augmentation then I would say you are being harsh and judgemental. If you are willing to skip over a potential partner for something as simple as that, then you aren't someone I would want to be with anyway. You are completely entitled to your own opinion, but maybe you should try to be a bit more open minded.:)
