I was displeased with my breast size. We did the 3D Vectra imaging and Dr. Waldorf concluded that 220 or 255cc silicone implants would give me my desired results. Everything went extremely smoothly on the day of my surgery ... I was back to normal activity within 1-2 weeks. Overall it was an excellent experience!Learn More
From the very first visit, all my experiences with Dr. Waldorf have been great. I was always self-conscious of my small chest but never as much as after having 2 kids & nursing each of them for 1 year. I had no cleavage at all & finding a swimsuit that could conceal this was very difficult. I went from 32A to 32C which fits my body perfectly & looks very natural. The surgery & my recovery went very smooth & I'm very happy with the result.Learn More
