I have been wanting a breast lift and augmentation for 15 years but decided to wait until I had completed my family. I saw an ad for Club Image which offers payment plans and knew immediately I wanted a consultation. The consultation was amazing! Jodie spend hours with me trying on breast impant sizes and measuring /taking pictures. I immediately scheduled surgery for 2 weeks later. They offer a rapid recovery technique which was very appealing to me as they don't prescribe pain meds as a norm and recovery is supposed to be 48 hrs. I generally have a high pain tolerance but found this procedure to be ALOT more painful then I had anticipated. I had to break down and ask for pain killers . It felt like I had been kicked in the chest by a horse. The incisions aren't painful but the pressure and built up air/fluid in the chest is as well as the tighness. I wish that I had done a little more research as to what recovery entails so I could have been a little better prepared. I am currently 5 days post op and am feeling a little less pressure and heaviness in my chest today. The days prior were extremely difficult to even get out of bed. I will continue to update and share pictures throughout my recovery process.Updated on 29 Aug 2017:I'm feeling better than I was last week. I've started doing my log rolls and that seems to help the skin tightness. The swelling has decreased some what and I am having less soreness in the morning when I wake up. Sleeping is still a little uncomfortable and I hope that subsides soon. I went and bought a better supportive sports bra and that seems to help as well. I'm also hoping I start seeing some improvement in the stitch puckering.Updated on 4 Sep 2017:I am feeling MUCH better. My skin doesn't feel tight , the zingers are lessening. When I wake up in the morning I am not as stiff. I do however feel alot of movement in my left breast when I move still and my right breast still seems significantly more swollen and the nipple is lower than the left. I am very happy with my results so far. I can't wait until my breast soften up. Also wondering when the puckering if the stitches will go away.Updated on 18 Sep 2017:I am feeling tons better. I went to my 3 week appointment and they where amazing at how nicely I am healing. So yay for that! I was just advised to start massaging. I hope that helps them to become softer because at this point they are still quite form. So very happy this far! More

I had breast augmentation with a lift 6 days ago. Fi rst of all, Dr Moore, Shawna, Jenny and Christina are all absolutely fantastic. Excellent customer service and bedside manner. Shawna, the nurse, has gone above and beyond to make sure I'm educated and comfortable. She's amazing! Jenny and Christina are so sweet and very helpful. Dr Moore is informative and to the point, and so far, everything looks great and is healing well. My only complaints are that a few of the other staff members were not very friendly to my husband or myself, and one day I kept getting hung up on when I had questions. I have had more nerve pain than expected which can come with the territory as each person heals differently, so I wish that could have been dealt with differently. But overall, I'm impressed with Dr Moore and those three fantastic staff members. ? More

Dr.Moore did my breast augmentation and I am THRULLED with my results. However I am only one week post op, my size is perfect. Exactly the look I was going for. My recovery has been so easy and I was back to work in 4 days. .AND I'M A HAIRSTYLIST. (Given I am still taking it easy and not lifting over 10 lbs) I have full mobility and no pain aside from having a sore back at the end of the day from carrying around my extra weight; ).. I have only taken pain medication at night to help me sleep and literally NOTHING else. My mind is blown that my breast augmention has been literally pain free. I do feel very tight in my Muscles and heavier of course but nothing else! The swelling is going down nice and evenly on both sides and I haven't experienced any bruising at all. THE staff at just the right curves are very friendly and professional and have made me feel so comfortable. They remember me when I call and are helpful whenever I have questions or concerns (even if they might silly). DR.Moore has been a great doctor and fulfilled all of my wants and needs in my augmention. I won't lie, I didn't feel a little worried about how little he was involved when helping me pick a size, but aside from that he was very knowledgeable on the different implant choices and the looks they would give. I remember being very nervous going into anesthesia and he was very gentle and kind to me and even comfortably rubbed my arm as they hooked up my IV. Despite some of the reviews I had read, I am very happy that I chosen Dr.Moore and his method and I would recommend him to all of my friends. My mother is even going to see him at the end of this month for her breasts! Something she has NEVER thought about. All because she has witnessed what an incredible experience I have had. The only reason I can't give a 5 star rating is because I do wish he spent a little more time with me in the consultation just to help me feel more secure with my decision, and I was also hoping I would have my first post op appointment with him but it was with his nurse. (Who is also amazing) but I'm sure you all can understand that I would like the surgeon to check me out. However I'm sure he will be at my 3 week post op! Yay! I love my new girls! More

Like Them. Salt Lake City, UT - I really like mine a lot. I went in that morning and I went to a baseball game that night. They were tight for a week or two but I can honestly say it was never really painful (besides when you lay on them) and I was not groggy after the procedure like i am with all the other times i have been put out. I usually wake up vomiting but I had no issues with that at all. They don't feel super... More

I am 35 years old, 5'10" and 135 lbs. I've always been a B cup but during both pregnancies, breast size increased to an F. Unfortunately this meant that subsequently the girls were more like old socks with the old breast tissue hanging at the bottom. I decided to take the plunge and undergo breast augmentation. As a professional, I wanted to have as little down time as possible so opted to go with a rapid recovery procedure. I'm post-op day 2 and cannot understand this concept. I was told most women go out to dinner the day of their procedure. I was discharged without a compression bra and only recommendation of ibuprofen 800 mg TID. I learned after the surgery that in order to get the "lift" the breasts would have to remained taped in this weird cone shape for 3 weeks. The first 24 hours were brutal. Not only would I never go anywhere with the funnels on my chest, the pain was extraordinary. I followed up the next day and learned thinner people tend to have more pain. Fortunately I was given some pain medication, which helped somewhat, and also a compression bra that changed the appearance of the funnels to more like the 1950s triangle cone bra. I was reassured the taping was normal. Now today is post-op day 2 and I had more difficulty getting out of bed bc of pain than I did the first morning. I'm hopeful that this will improve as it is really difficult and makes getting around a challenge. I suspect that I am simply not one that rapidly recovers. More

When doing research I could not find anything negative about Dr. Moore or many reviews at all. I just had my procedure done 3 days ago and I am extremely impressed this far. I was literally home, took a 1 hour nap and then was up showering then went shopping. I haven't taken anything but Motron for pain. All I feel is like a sore muscle. If you follow there instructions on stretching and no lifting over 10Ibs you'll be nearly pain free. I was a little disappointed in some of the conversations we overheard while in the office. Was somewhat unprofessional however overall I give my experience a 9 out of 10. Very impressed so far. Will give a follow up in a week. More
