I am a 24 year old mother of 2 who has managed to lose over 70lbs all on my own. I have given myself the body I never dreamed I could have. Unfortunately though, when all the weight went, so did my breasts. After breast feeding 2 babies and dropping all my pre and post pregnancy weight, I had nothing left on my chest. After a year of maintaining my new sculpted body, I decided to reward myself with a breast augmentation.
I have never experienced any kind of surgery before, so when I decided to get a breast augmentation done, I knew I had to find nothing but the best for myself. I was terrified of the whole procedure and not really sure what I was getting myself into. Everything from deciding on the right size, the anaesthesia, recovery, all the way to choosing the right pain medication was stressful and uncharted territory for me.
I sent my pictures to Dr. Corbin, which he responded very quickly and suggested I would need a lift as well as the implants. With this requires a longer operation and more recovery, not something I had even considered. I was fortunate enough to have my first consultation with Dr. Corbin in Canada, where he explained the whole procedure to me. He informed me of all the possible risks, the healing process and answered all of my questions. I knew right away this was someone who was extremely knowledgeable and I trusted him to do the operation on me. Shortly after, I booked my appointment and my flight to California. I arrived in California on a Wednesday afternoon where I had my pre-operation appointment at the Brea Office. The staff there was so friendly and patient with me as I tried on several different sizes before finally deciding on 375cc implants. With Dr. Corbin’s expertise, he suggested using a smaller implant on my left side due to uneven breasts. I left the office feeling confident that I had made the right choice. My surgery was the next morning (Thursday). I arrived at the office where, again the staff went over the sizing I had chose, and made me feel so comfortable despite my fear of the fast approaching operation. Once in the operation room, Dr. Corbin and his staff had me feeling so calm and comfortable. After the operation, I have had very minimal swelling, no noticeable bruising and over the top results!
I am so thrilled with how my breasts have turned out. Everything from the placement, sizing and minimal scaring has been above and beyond my expectations. I truly appreciate that Dr. Corbin took into consideration my young age, and wanted to make sure I had very little/no scarring left on me. He also considered the fact that I had flown in to see him, and made sure to make my sutures dissolvable as I would not be able to return to his office to have them removed. The few remaining days I had in California for recovery went extremely well, with daily check ups from Dr. Corbin and his staff on how my recovery was going and again, answered all my questions that I had.
I want to send a HUGE thank you to Dr. Corbin and his staff for making this experience beyond satisfaction and more importantly giving me results that exceeded my already high expectations. I would recommend Dr. Corbin to anyone and everyone. Because of his expertise, I am so proud and confident to show who I am!
