Dr. Virden achieved an amazing outcome for me with a breast lift and augmentation. He explained what the realistic goals and risks were and I am very happy with the results. He has a great genuine presence and a friendly staff. I recommend Dr. Virden highly. More

I had a great experience with Dr Virden and his staff. I had recently lost 100 lbs and had heard good things about Dr Virden. So I came from Sacramento to Reno to have my consultation. From the time I walked into the door I was treated great by the staff, they are very friendly and prompt. I loved Dr Virden from the moment I met him. He answered all my questions before I even could ask. I had 3 procedures done about 1 month later, an abdominoplasty extended, a breast lift, and fat transfer to the buttocks. I'm about 6 weeks post surgery and could not be any happier with the results. I will definitely be going back to him for any future surgeries and would recommend him to my family and friends. More

Natural and Free of Implants - Reno, NV - Here on Realself and also from a cousin. - - Six years ago I was researching breast implant surgery. It seems odd to me now that I am researching removal after always thinking that implants were the answer. After having my children, I had imagined that implants were in my future. I had breastfed 2 children and had become very engorged with the first one (E cup from a B cup). After deciding that I was not going to have anymore children, I began my research to finally get the breasts that I believed would "complete" me. I would finally feel beautiful and not self-conscious. Right! All that I have felt is self-conscious! My droopy B's were filled with 450 Mentor MemoryGel Silicone implants over the muscle. I chose this size because I thought that if they were just "filled up" I would no longer feel the need for a breast lift. It worked that way for a while and I did think that I was happy at first. After a little time passed though, I started feeling very self-conscious and even paranoid. It felt like my breasts were the first thing to walk in the room and everyone just knew that I had them done! I couldn't hide them or even downsize the way that they looked. I felt out of proportion. At the time I as 132 pounds and I am 5'9" tall. I cut my hair and that made things even worse! I hadn't realized how much I was trying to hide until I didn't have the advantage of the hair to help cover my chest. I wanted them out 3 years ago, but just kept trying to get used to them.So why did I decided to get serious about it now? I want to live a long life! And guess what? I decided to have another baby!. He is 3 1/2 months old now. My breastfeeding experience was a nightmare. I became extremely engorged and ended up spending a night in the hospital. He would cry and fight me when I tried to breastfeed.I pumped for a while and finally gave up on the whole thing, as I pumped a whopping 1/2 ounce per breast. It was a very emotional time for me- I had successfully breastfed my other children with no problems and it came naturally..... because I was natural.Since having implants, I have had some odd skin issues. I break out in hives on occasion, or sometimes in what looks like eczema. The "eczema" appears for a few days to up to 6 months at a time. I have periods of itching all over, as if I have something crawling under my skin. I used to think it was just dry skin, but it only happens when I am tired or laying down. I have felt very fortunate that I don't have any other issues, but I do feel like a ticking time bomb. Who knows what is going on in there?I am ready to feel natural again. I want these out. I don't want something in my body that could cause me harm. I have a baby to live for. My husband supports my decision. In fact, he never wanted me to get them to begin with. As I prepared to go into surgery, he told me that we could just get up and walk out; I didn't need to do it. I wanted it. Live and learn. I do worry about how he will look at me afterward. He has gotten used to the way I look with the implants- and he does like them. I just think that I will feel so much better in so many ways. I am scheduled for a consultation on Feb. 6th. That's the first step to get the ball rolling! More

Wow - Reno, NV - Dr. Virden exceeded my expectations! I had a fat transfer and breast lift. I never thought having a plastic surgery would make me feel so good. Dr. Virden is very kind, realistic, listens to the patient and is a artful surgeon. My breasts look very natural and I couldn't be happier! His staff is amazing, very knowledgable and discreet. I just can't say enough about Dr. Virden and his staff. - - After breast feeding my breast were saggy and asymmetrical, a full cup size difference. I always had to were a push-up bra and could never find a bra or bathing suit that fit both breasts. More
