Did you get any procedure(s) done by this doctor?   Yes
Date of your procedure(s):   October 25, 2005
Procedure(s) I had done:   None


In 2005 Dr. Newen over dissected my left breast pocket which left my breast sitting noticeably lower than the right which resulted in it bottoming out immediately after surgery. In addition to this, he made the left breast noticeably larger than the right (I had several PS’s confirm these two issues). I made mention of these issues at all of my post-op appointments and even sent him a letter appealing to his sense of pride in his work and asking him to fix the problem. He dismissed my concerns every time I spoke to him and refused to acknowledge that there was even an issue with my breasts. He told me that “this is the best you are going to look.” I am now saving up so I can have my breasts fixed by another PS.
