Patient's Touching Surgical Story

It's rare when someone reveals themselves openly and honestly. Even more so when it's done publicly. Yet, this is exactly what one of Dr. Young's patients decided to do when she shared her story on an Internet site designed to give helpful information to those interested in breast implants.

"Anonymous" has been making news with her detailed account of why she decided to get breast implants at 49 years of age, and what her experiences were in selecting a surgeon, having the surgery, and her recovery experience. 

We're asked all the time, "What should I expect?", and it's a great question. Women wanting breast augmentation, whether they're 25 or 55 need answers that will help them make an informed decision that they will be happy with. It's something we strive to deliver to patients when they come to see Dr. Young for a consultation visit. Decisions go beyond selecting the right size, what recovery is like or when you can return to work, and some, in fact, wrestle with whether the procedure is "okay" to have at all.

I think "Anonymous" explains it well, and can serve as a good resource to anyone considering a breast augmentation or other cosmetic plastic surgery procedure. "Anonymous" gave an incredibly candid and frank account of her very personal and moving story of her decision to pursue Breast Augmentation following a battle with lymphoma. Her message is inspiring, and we thank her for sharing her heart-felt story with others.
