My entire life I flet that I wasn't living up to what I should be, looking up to other girls while growing up in the 80's and 90's there was so much around me that comforted my insecurities. In high school, I had very low self esteem which carried over to college and then after....I think that a lot of my insecurities had ended several relationships. I was tired of feeling like a teenage boy when i was on the beach in a bikini. I was tired of wearing bras so padded that I was running out of choices in stores, I was so tired of being so flat chested.... After I had my son, I thought it would change, and nope, did not. Then I had my daughter, after gaining over 80 pounds with her, the largest my cup size got was a B. I nursed her for 25 months and then back down they went.... Throughout this entire time I had always had the thought in the back of my mind that I would like to have a breast augmentation.... I searched online looking for the perfect physician, sent emails asking personal questions since I did have a 2 yr old at home with me, most of the responses were very straight forward and lacked personality and compassion, then I received an email from Dr. David Berman, it was sincere, it showed compassion in life, in children and in the quality of life, so I finally called.... It was the best decision I had ever made! I went in for my consultation and was overwhelmed with the information as well as people so caring and willing to help for me to make the right decision. Cheryl, Dr. Berman's office manager, greeted my husband and I in the exam room, she really put my mind at ease with her kind words and letting us know she knew people whom she cared about deeply who had been through surgery with Dr. Berman. Then I got to meet Dr. Berman, he talked me through everything, I was so nervous to shed my top in front of a perfect stranger, but he truly put my mind at ease and made sure to make me feel as comfortable as possible. Much to my suprise, he advised me that I was a AA cup....not even fitting into an A cup....so, after sitting through the very informative session and having Dr. Berman answer all of my questions, as well as my husband's, I was ready....(I believe that I was ready and knew my decision since he had told me the size I was...which was looming over me while continuing to talk to him about the procedures..) I left there that day, scheduled for my augmentation 10 days later!
The Big day was fast upon me, I went out and bought some bras and a couple of bathing suits, not to mention a few low cut shirts....I was more than anxious, more than ecstatic, but extremely nervous at that. Dr. Berman reassured me that everything would be fine....I remember takimg the meds and then waking up in recovery....It was fabulous! The first few days were a little off, somewhat like after having a child, you don't remember that much about them, but you'd do it again! :o) I was and am so certainly satisfied with the outcome! I am so excited and know that in the hands of Dr. Berman, I can't be in any better place! Dr. Berman has proved to be an amazing physician as well as person in general. I would do this over and over and have since gone back to Dr. Berman for a couple of procedures, nothing as invasive as my augmentation, but I sincerely believe in all of Dr. Berman's abilities, I've referred him to more than half of my friends and a few of them have taken me up on the offer and LOVE their outcomes as well! Dr. Berman and his entire office are the best in the area, I'm so satisfied and have made a link for life! Thank you Dr. Berman, Thank you Cheryl, you guys are awesome!!!!
