Jess’ Breast Augmentation Story
After having children, Jess, mother of two beautiful kids, made the decision to seek out a plastic surgeon to perform a breast augmentation procedure. “I nursed both of my children for a whole year each,” Jess explained. “Nobody tells you the effects it has on you physically. You breastfeed because it’s the best for your child, but even after my first, I noticed a vast difference in my chest.” Jess wanted to wait until she had more children before electing to have body recontouring surgery. “After my second child, I knew I was finished having babies and decided to do something for me.”
How Did Jess Choose Dr. Bartell for Her Procedure?
Once Jess had made up her mind about seeking a plastic surgeon, she turned to the internet to find the right one for her. Using Google, Jess came across Dr. Tom Bartell. Visiting his website, she discovered that Dr. Bartell performs no-scar breast surgery, motivating her to dig even deeper into his background. After reviewing the content on Dr. Bartell’s website, Jess scheduled an appointment with for her free consultation.
What Was Jess’ First Impression of Dr. Bartell?
“When I first arrived at Dr. Bartell’s office I was surprised at how little like a doctor’s office it looked and felt,” Jess explained. “His staff was extremely welcoming, and the office itself was even very homey, and I instantly felt at ease.” Jess continues, explaining that when Dr. Bartell entered the office he was “very friendly and made me feel comfortable and at ease.” Jess continues, explaining that when Dr. Bartell entered the office he was “very friendly and made me feel comfortable and at ease right away.”
Jess had originally planned for a babysitter to watch her two small children, but that had fallen through, and she had to bring them along to the consultation. “I was nervous, but everyone at the office just rolled with it. My children were as welcome as I was, and the receptionist even brought paper and crayons to color with. The entire staff of Dr. Bartell’s office are very accommodating and the atmosphere is so relaxing that you feel extremely welcome.”
Jess’ initial consultation with Dr. Bartell was to discuss the breast augmentation procedure she was interested in having. Jess recounts that she had only expected to talk about the surgery itself, but instead, she was provided much more than just that.
“When I first met with Dr. Bartell he came walking into the room with a book full of before and after photos, which I thought was simply fantastic. You could see the patient’s body before and after the surgery, compare and contrast on your own so you knew exactly what similar breast size was going to look like instead of just trying to picture it in your mind.”
Jess was even given samples of the different sized silicone implants to look at and compare, something Dr. Bartell does for every patient interested in breast augmentation surgery. “Dr. Bartell listened closely to exactly what I wanted, and questioned me about my lifestyle so he would be able to confidently show me the size that was going to work best for me. His expertise and many years of experience made me feel at ease and confident in his work.”
What Impressed Jess the Most?
“Dr. Bartell just has this ease about him, this confidence. He makes you feel comfortable right when you walk into the door. He will answer all of your questions, no matter how many you have,” Jess smiles, “and no matter what time of day you ask them.”
She truly enjoyed talking to Dr. Bartell as an equal instead of having that feeling of doctor lecturing a patient. They discussed his background and even his hobby of flying airplanes, something that greatly interested Jess’ young daughter. Jess loved that all of their personalities just clicked. “You can sit and talk with Dr. Bartell for hours. The fact that he has the ability to put you at ease, to make you feel comfortable with your surgery, is HUGE.”
Would Jess Recommend Dr. Bartell?
“Definitely!” Jess exclaims. “I’ve already recommended him to many people, my sister included. She wants to have the same thing done, a breast augmentation, after she is done having children.” Jess’ sister was actually her support person that was in charge of taking her to and from the surgery appointment, so she was able to see the office and meet the staff, and she was impressed with everything and everyone she saw. “She was even amazed after the surgery, at how well I was recovering,” said Jess. “She walked right up to Dr. Bartell and said, ‘you can’t retire before you do my surgery!'”
Jess Is Healing Well and Happy With Her Decision
Before the surgery, Jess recounts how she had been self-conscious and never wore certain types of clothing, such as low cut tops or bikinis. Some of her friends would even tease her about dressing so conservatively, as she just wasn’t comfortable in that kind of clothing, especially after nursing her two children. “I’m looking forward to the different things I can wear now,” Jess said with a happy smile. “I don’t ever have to worry about finding a swimsuit that gives me an extra boost or lift, or covers something up anymore. I can finally just be in the moment now instead of worrying about how I look. I’m so happy now.”
