Rebekah Discusses Her Experience with Dr. Mobley*

I initially decided to get my enhancement when the FDA approved the silicone in 2008. I didn't have the money. On my deployment, I was making a little bit extra. I was able to do some research in all my copious amounts of free time. Not a whole lot. I'm very particular about what I wanted. I had been searching, actually for a couple of years at that point. I wasn't even sure if I was going to do it in Florida. While I was in Iraq I had to get a job. I was laid off while I was gone. I was unsure. It was either Virginia or Florida. I had family here, so I figured it was a safe bet to look in this area. I had been looking through a lot of different websites with their photographs. I tried to match a before and after that looked like me before and what I wanted to look like after without being all torpedo tube-ish. I also wanted to be natural. The first doctor I spoke to was actually in Hawaii, in 2008. I just didn't feel comfortable with him. He really didn't put me at ease. I put it off for a while. I wanted it to be as natural looking as possible and not completely obvious. I was really interested in a result that was going to be as little enhanced as possible. I had stumbled on his website online in Iraq. I ended up emailing the nurses and asked them if they would be willing to do a consult by email, initially, to see. I had to go into my little, tiny room and find one of the two other females there to help me take a picture with my cellphone and sneak it into the computer and upload it so that nobody else could find it and then send it out and email it in and see if I was going to be able to get a spot in. Once I heard back from the nurses, they were very, very helpful. They gave me feedback on the photographs that I sent. Dr. Mobley was able to tell me that he felt really confident he'd be able to achieve the look that I was getting, that I was hoping to get. Then, it was just up to me getting back to the country. It was probably about 4 months, well, 3 or 4 months before I actually got to the doctor's office, because I was still on my deployment and I had to get back. I had everything scheduled for that date that I would be for sure in Florida. My first visit to the office was, I think about a week before I had my actual surgery, where I met Dr. Mobley and we tried out all the different sizes, because we had to figure out what fit in size. We went with the implants that I had chose. I was very happy. I ended up looking through many websites. I had been looking at many different websites for a couple of years. I had tried to figure out how to navigate through where the photographs were. Some people had categories by different sizes, from one size to the enhanced size. Some people did it by body weight, age, etc. I basically was looking for someone who had photographs that were described well and categorized easily so that you could go find what you were looking for. I was able to go onto, I don't really think I went to his site initially by name. It was that I think I found the photographs on his site to be the most helpful. I was able to navigate through and find the results that looked like what I wanted. Then, he also had been certified and proficient with the silicone implants, is what I ended up getting. I wanted to find a doctor that had done a lot of silicone implants, that the results looked natural and non-fake porn star or Hollywood. I didn't want it to be obvious in clothing. I felt really confident that his... The photographs. I was really drawn to the photographs. I went back and forth and looked through several different photographs. I ended up going back to his website the most often. I found a patient photograph on the site of a female woman who was near my age who had a before similar to what I was and her after was beautiful. I kind of, I was very worried about that actually. I think that was the biggest thing that paused on my, is that I, you know, from everything I read was that you just enhanced what was already there. The shape that you have is what you end up just making a bigger shape of what shape you have already. In order to get the look that I wanted, I thought there was going to be a little bit of trouble with it. I really honed in on the look that I had before, which isn't very common. Then, the result after. There had been several other sites that had women who had a before look that I had. Their after look was, I don't know, I just didn't like it. I'm not sure if they liked it. I didn't want to look like that. Basically, it was the photographs. Then, all of his credentials and education and experience was very helpful. I looked up all the different certifications and boards that he was a part of. I was impressed with all of it. Perfect. Talk about the consultation. The first time you met and how you got sized. Talk about that initial consultation and then we'll talk about the surgery. Initially, I spoke with the nurses. They told me to go into the room where I waite
