I had massive weight loss and needed to fill out my empty breasts. I went in knowing an approximate size I wanted but he tried to convince me the cc's I was choosing would be larger than I needed to fill in the excess skin. He suggested me go 150cc less than I chose. Im glad I followed my gut because even though I chose larger implants than he suggested, I still have excess skin that needs to be filled in.
I saw him the morning after surgery and asked when Id need to come back in and was told I only needed to come back in if I had a problem. wth? How do I know if I was healing right? That left me very uncomfortable and I eneded up having another surgeon do my follow up care.... for free!!!!! Im satisfied with my results but I am not thrilled or even truely happy. I hate the way my breasts look from the side righ now because of the excess flessh.
On the positive note, I have to say Deborah and the rest of the office staff are incredible and so kind. Ive never been to an office that was staffed so wonderfully. I emailed, called and corresponded with Deborah many times before and after and not once did she appear frustrated or inconvenienced by my questions.. and I know I was a pain asking a million questions!!
Dr. Gonce has great facilities and overall the work he did is amazing compared to what I started out with. Even thought the sizing is not perfect, the art work is very nice. My breasts are once again show stoppers and appear very very similar to my natural breasts before the massive weight loss.
