When Karen, 57, had her 30-year-old silicone breast implants removed, she expected a lift to her decollete - not her health.
Many women crave a fuller, perkier bust - but feel limited by their choices. "There's a presumption that all breast augmentation is the same - that it's a big, round implant... or nothing. That's simply not the case," says Dr. Justin Heller, Santa Clarita's 2019 winner for "Best Plastic Surgeon." In fact, when you work with a specialist, options abound! Here are three.
She Lost 157 Pounds & Gained a New Perspective on Life
When you work with people significantly younger than you, it can feel awkward at best and even chip away at your spirit - especially when your age becomes the topic of conversation.
Sonia, 34, knew what it was like to feel good in her body. A fitness trainer by trade, she helps other women feel strong and confident - but after nursing her two young children, she didn't feel that way about herself anymore.
The season's juiciest beauty news.
"I never thought I'd get rid of the poochy pouch of fat on my lower stomach," says Ana, 37, of Valencia. "It became prominent after my pregnancy, but as I've gotten older and my hormones have changed, it slowly got bigger. It made me feel unattractive. I hated it, which is why pictures of me over the last decade have me posing with my arms crossed across my belly in at least half of them!"
When Susan, 69, had a hysterectomy years ago, her body recovered - but her self esteem didn't. "I was very unhappy with what happened to my midsection," says the Valencia resident. "No matter what I did, I had a 'muffin top.' My stomach wouldn't go flat."
Shelly of Santa Clarita never really wanted breast surgery, but after three pregnancies, three breastfeeding infants and three "baby weight" losses, she had... three.

Laura, 57, has a message for women and men of every age. "When it comes to how you feel about yourself, how you feel when you look in the mirror, do what you need to do to build your confidence. Don't do it for your husband, or for society, or for anyone else. Do it for you - get it done! Plastic surgery... anything. Just do it. The mirror is unforgiving. Life is better when you feel good about yourself and how you look."
Victoria, 39, had a breast augmentation at Heller Plastic Surgery nearly four months ago, but when you ask her about it, this change was a much longer time coming. "I always knew that I would get this done; it was a matter of when," says the Westside resident. "I never hated my breasts or anything - but at an A cup, I really wanted to have a bigger chest so that my body looked more proportional."
"I look like me, only younger! If you compared the 'me' of today with a photo from a decade ago, we'd look the same. Dr. Heller is really a blessing."

Amy* had been thinking about getting a lower face lift and a fat transfer to her hands for a long time. "At 55 years old, my frustration with some elements of my appearance were very obvious and present to me. It was always in the back of my mind," says the Valencia resident.

Your muffin top. That pocket of "chunk" on the inside of your knee. The saddlebags that make clothes cling in all the wrong ways. What stubborn fat have you grabbed, pinched or cursed at, knowing that diet and exercise wouldn't do much - if anything - to send it packing?
Sometimes, too much of a good thing - isn't. And that goes double when you're talking about something as intimate as breast size. "I went from a B cup to a DD, to a G, back down to about a C," summarizes Helena, 48, of Valencia.
