Dr. Van Raalte did an amazing job on my breast augmentation. They look perfect! His staff helped chooose the perfect size for my body to look natural. They definitely knew their stuff and spent lots of time with me making such an important decision!! I must say listen to them though... they recommended 500 cc for me and I was scared to go too big so I went with the 475... they obviously know what they are talking about because now I wish I had listened and done the 500 cc. Not that it would have made much of a difference, but you get used to the new size and although I LOVE mine I admit I could've gone slightly larger ;) I also had my umbilical hernia repaired at the same time - he did a great job with that also ... however I wish I had chosen not to use mesh to repair the hernia as the scar tissue that formed on the mesh is visable since I have a thin stomach with not much fat tissue to conceal it. Just want to make sure other thin girls having umbilical hernia repair think about the visibility of the scar tissue that will form on the mesh!
