I too was tramatized by Peter Driscoll, about a month ago I received breast implants and a breast lift. During the surgery I awoke multiple times, on one occasion I started to suffocate becasue the oxygen mask came off and the blue plastic they put over your face was what I was trying to breath through. Then another time I awoke and I felt them stitching me together and I told them it hurt and all they told me was we are almost done just hold on. They told me that while they were sewing my nipple back on. I still feel the pain til this day, I wake up in the middle of the night with nightmares of being helpless on the surgery room table and feeling that needle go in and out. I ended up with a bacterial infection following the surgery, and when I told the doctor of what happened with me waking up he put the blame on me. He took no responsibility for the failure to keep me under with anesthesia. That just shows he was too cheap to afford a real anesthesiologist and expects to be able to perform surgery while monitoring his patients vital signs. I would suggest to get your medical records from them to see what they put in the surgery notes and see if they too did lie in them like they lied in mine.

My wife, who recieved a breast augmentation by Dr. Driscoll is a doctor herself. She spent 2 years doing research and went to 34 different consultations before she met Dr. Driscoll. It was very apparent that going through the belly button for her implant was her only choice, based on all the glowing reviews on the internet, and the show Doctor 90210 with Dr. Robert Ray. It was very clear that the TUBA or breast aug. thru the bellybutton was much less painful, quicker recovery, NO SCAR, and much less complications. We live in Houston and the only doctor doing the TUBA was Dr. Driscoll in Austin texas. We acutually did a consult in with Robert Ray, but he was a little odd?? The bottom line we would have gone anywhere, but chose Dr. Driscoll. He trained at the same facility as Dr. Ray in Beverly Hills, but he was very warm, patient, imformative and had 5-6 hundred pics of before and afters to show us. I found him very honest and sincere. He was rated in America's Top Docs and has been on many shows like Dr. Phil, Tyra, Montel, and BBC. He is board certified in Facial Plastics through the ABO-HNS and board certified in Cosmetic Surgery through the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, and has even patened his own instruments for the TUBA. I read the court case that someone mentioned, and whats really funny is that he was the one who sued the State of Louisiana and WON!
Talk about doctor bashing??? Whats even funnier, is that Plastic sureons during their training only get to do cosmetic surgery 25% of the time. The other 75% of that 2 years is spent on hand, burn, and reconstructive surgery; whereas with a cosmetic surgery fellowship is 100% cosmetic surgery. Yes, by this point I think you can tell my wife, unlike the last reviewer, did her research and knows what she is talking about. We have referred 7 friends to Dr. Driscoll and all have had the same great results. The only down side is that he is very much in demand, so you may have to wait a little before you get to see him!! Lastly, on his web site the videos are a must see, they are very accurate. My wife did'nt need any pain medicine and was back to work the next day. We highly recommend this doctor!!

This doctor does not know what he is doing, he performed my initial BA and 9 months later I had a deflation, he charged my another $4800 on top of the $7050 I had already paid him. During the second surgery to remove and replace the deflated implant, the new implant was placed above the muscle while the other side was below the muscle. $9000, a new doctor and 3 months of not being able to lift my little boy I am now repaired. In hind-sight I should have done my homework a little better and I wouldn't have used him. He is not a board certified plastic surgeon, he only has one year formal training on the breasts, and doesn't seem to care that he damaged my body with his incompetence.
