Kym's Breast Augmentation Testimonial

"I love my new breasts and would recommend Dr. Hedden"

I'm 23 years old and have wanted a breast augmentation for as long as I can remember. Last year I finally decided I would at least go in for consultation. I did a search and came across From there I was able to send an email asking all of my questions.

Within a couple of days I received an email from Dr. Hedden. I had asked him general questions about the procedure including the cost. He answered all my questions, even the dumb ones, including the price of the surgery. I was so happy with the price and the doctor's cooperation that I immediately scheduled my consultation.

When I got to the office, I felt very comfortable with the atmosphere. The nurse was in the room waiting for us when we got back. She asked me what I was thinking about having done and I told her I wanted a breast augmentation. She asked me if I knew what kind of incision I wanted and briefly went over the different types of incisions. I decided I wanted the crease incision (inframammory fold).

After she was certain all my questions were answered she took me to a room so I could try on sample implants. I tried on several and decided I was going to get 400cc. After I found a size, Dr. Hedden and his assistant came in and talked to me about what the nurse had written on my chart. He talked about the difference in having the implants placed over and under the muscle. He told me he thought under the muscle was the best option for me. He told me I was a small B and noted that my creases were not even. I showed him the size I was looking at and told him I wanted to be a full C and he said that would work out great.

She returned with my paperwork and gave me a price that was actually a little cheaper than the price I was quoted on the email. I was so excited that I could hardly sleep. I had a little over a month to wait. I called Dr. Hedden's office at least 50 times asking dumb questions. They never got mad and they always assured me that I could call them anytime.

Finally it was time for my 2-week check up. Everyone greeted me with a smile. Dr. Hedden came in and confirmed all my information and asked if there were any changes. I told him I now wanted to go to a D instead of a C. He said that would be no problem.

The following 2 weeks were the slowest days of my life. I went out and bought my sports bra and made plans for my friend to take care of me for a few days.

They called me back on time and took me to a room where I took off my clothes and put on a robe. They asked me if anything had changed and I told them I wanted to go bigger. She brought in some sample implants so I could decide for the last time which size I wanted. After I decided she took the before pictures and had me get on the bed. Dr. Hedden asked me again if I had any questions and I said that I wanted to change the size again. He told me he already had me down as 450cc and I said that was fine.

Next thing I know I'm in the recovery room and feel like my back is on fire. My breasts didn't hurt at all but my back was killing me. I was hurting so bad and all I wanted was to go home.

I got home, got in bed and could hardly breathe from the pain. I took my pain medicine and a muscle relaxer and went to sleep. I woke up about every 3-4 hours hurting and needing more medicine. After the first 8 hours I started feeling better each time I would wake up.

I got up the next morning and went back to Dr. Hedden's office for my check-up. I felt so much better. He said I looked great and scheduled me to come back in 2 weeks.

Within the next few days I was driving and moving around on my own. My surgery was on a Tuesday and the following Monday I went back to work. I was doing and feeling great. When I left work that day I got into a car accident. The seatbelt hurt my breast and it scared me to death. I called Dr. Hedden and his nurse told me to go to the Emergency Room and get an X-ray. They wrapped me up and told me to see Dr. Hedden the next morning. I called him the next day and he was very busy but made time for me. I got a rental car and was heading to his office when I got into another car wreck. I got my brother to call 911 and immediately called Dr. Hedden's office. I made it to their office and they gave me a short massage to calm me down. Dr. Hedden came in and assured me that I was ok. I was so thankful to him for kindness. He really went out of his way to take care of me. Everything was going fine.

A few days after my follow-up appointment I noticed some pain and a strange uncomfortable feeling in my left breast. I called Dr. Hedden's office and they assured me that it was ok and a few weeks later it went away and I had beautiful breasts. I got measured and I was a 36 D. Every day they look better and better and I couldn't be more satisfied. I love my new breasts and I would recommend Dr. Hedden to anyone who wants to get a breast augmentation.
