The Perfect Surgeon

My name is Nancy, and I am 22 years old. When I was about 13 I started to realize that with getting more mature my body was not changing the way it was supposed to be, or the way I saw other girls my age maturing. For the next 7 years of my life I suffered with trying to hide the fact that my right breast was at least three sizes smaller than my left breast. I almost just starting telling myself, “I need to accept this. There is no way I could ever afford to do any surgical procedure to fix my problem, and even then I could never have normal breasts like every other woman out there.”

But something changed all this when settlement money came to me in the result of a horrific car accident I was in two years before. Ok I thought, this is finally my time to have something done that I had hoped for my entire teen to adult years. The search was on for the perfect surgeon to change my entire life. I had many references ranging from Sacramento to Stockton and my search began in Sacramento. I was so excited I couldn’t wait for my first consultation, only to find out the news from three doctors telling me no matter what procedure I had done, my breasts will never look the same, but were willing to perform the augmentation anyways. My heart sank in my chest and thoughts came to me that I was destined to have this abnormality for the rest of my life, with knowing I had one doctor left on my list.

The suffering ended in August of 2007 when I walked into the facilities of Dr. Silverton. The first thing he told me was, “We can help you”. He explained to me how I would need a lift on my left breast to compensate for the years of gravity working against me, and an implant on the right side so everything will be completely even. Everything Dr. Silverton and his office told me sounded amazing. He even had a terrific payment plan if needed and a discount to anyone who will pay in advance of any procedure. They gave me every piece of information to make my procedure as relaxing as possible.

On September 17, 2007, I went into this surgery confident and 100% ready. I ended up getting 250cc in my right breast placed under the muscle, and a lift on my left. My recovery was a breeze, in under 1 week I was back at work as a hairstylist. Taking it easy of course in that time, I went to my two follow up appointments to find out that everything looked GREAT! It was only about 6 months after that my implant had completely dropped into its place and things look amazing.

This experience with Dr. Silverton was truly life changing. My confidence that was never there before was now at 110%. I am now buying any swimsuit I want, any bra I want and any clothes I want.

I could never thank Dr. Silverton and his team enough. I can only say that any procedure I decide to have or need in the future will be done by Dr. Silverton.

Beautiful Outcome

Dear Dr. Silverton and Staff,

I was thrilled to discover Dr. Silverton. He has incredible passion for his work, which is evident in the results. Words cannot even describe how I feel about the beautiful outcome of my surgery. The results exceeded all my expectations. From the beginning, he was responsive to all my concerns. He turned the process into something fun and memorable. It was comforting to know he was genuinely interested in achieving the best results possible, but not afraid to explain the limitations. The overall experience was professional and confidence inspiring from the first visit to the final post-op. The patient care was exceptional. I would have total confidence in recommending Dr. Silverton to anyone considering cosmetic procedures.

Dr. Silverton never overpromised but definitely over delivered. I am amazed at his precision and eye for detail. And the kindness and caring of his entire staff contributed to results that were beyond my expectations. A large part of the procedure was cleaning up unprofessional and sloppy results left by a less skilled plastic surgeon.

I cannot express enough my heartfelt gratitude for the excellent care provided. Each staff member from reception to payments contributed to a wonderfully positive experience. Their attentiveness and passion assured me that I was receiving terrific care throughout the entire procedure.

Sincerely,
Pam

First Experience With Cosmetic Surgery

I am writing this article to tell you about my first experience with cosmetic surgery….A Full Tummy Tuck

I was 23 years old when I had this amazing procedure done. One may ask “Why would you need a tummy tuck at 23?” and my reply to this is: I was once seen in the public eye as a beautiful individual (exteriorly). I was a Tall, Tan, Green-eyed girl with a Bangin Body. (I felt like a million bucks everywhere I went.) Then at the age of 16, I conceived and delivered a beautiful little girl. During the long nine months I gained 100 pounds, had stretch marks covering my whole body, and my million dollar image had diminished!!!

img-testimonialI became very self conscious of my body. Over the course of a year I went to the gym and was able to lose 45 pounds, losing the weight helped boost my self esteem but I still had these nasty looking, saggy stretch marks.

That’s when I decided “I NEED A TUMMY TUCK!”

As a make-up artist for MAC Cosmetics and a local hair dresser, I saw several beautiful woman each day. I begun to ask some of the woman that looked like they may have had some body work done who their doctor was, and woman after woman would tell me Dr. Silverton.

As I became more serious about actually going under the knife, I found that these woman were willing to show me the amazing work that Dr. Silverton did. I was convinced he was going to be my new doctor!

Finally I made my consultation at Dr. Silverton’s office. The staff was very polite and made me feel very comfortable. As I sat in the room waiting for the doc to come in I have to admit that I was a little nervous. One: because he’s a more “mature” man and Two: because I had to be naked in front of him…Yikes!

After a minute of talking with him “Naked”…LoL…I felt at ease. Doctor Silverton was very professional and very knowledgeable about what I was wanting done. A few months later I was in the operating room.

The day of my surgery the nurses were so nice and nurturing to me and my crazy nerves! I was lying on the table one minute and the next minute I was waking up in recovery to my family. It seemed like a breeze until the next day.

The next day I was in a lot of pain (keep in mind I have a low pain tolerance and am unable to take Vicodin). I recommend that you have a care taker 24/7 for the first week because I was unable to stand up or even walk on my own, couldn’t go to the bathroom on my own, and definitely was not in the right mind to know which meds to take let alone at the right time.

The second week you will be fine on your own.

Three weeks later I was feeling back to normal and was able to continue my everyday life without any hesitations.

It has now been three years since my procedure. I have lost a total of sixty five pounds and I haven’t felt this good in eight years. Although I am very satisfied with the end results of my tummy tuck, I do recommend losing all the weight you want to lose before actually going through with the surgery.

I am now back in Dr. Silverton’s office for breast augmentation/ lift. I am excited to finally see the two procedures together on my body. I’ll let you know how that turns out!
