I'm writing this while I heal from my 2nd breast aug/lift and tummytuck scar revision.
Dr Ross's office is a joke. I had done my research and was looking for someone who could work with me to help me obtain to the best of thier ability the realistic results i desired. I wanted submuscular and he insisted subgladular was fine. I wanted to know about silicone and he said he wanted saline for me. I told the nurse I wanted "the smallest implants possible" and she came in with 300cc's. One of my nipples eded up a good 2 cm. lower than the other and when i woke up i had a 125 cc implant on the left and a 225 filled to 250 implant on the right. It looked ridiculous and felt like a rock strapped to my chest. I went in later and had him remove the extra 25 cc's to soften my breast a bit. even then, I was completely lopsided.
He used surgical staples to close up my abdominoplasty incision from hipbone to hipbone.the scar even went up in the center so no matter what type of bottoms i wore it would show in the center- and the scaring was absolutlely horrendous. when I went in to have the staples removed this guy who was the head surgical nurse yanked them out with such force I thought I was going to die. There was another nurse removing the staples on the other side of my body at the same time and while it was uncomfortable, she took her time with them being careful not to pull on the skin. The guy then had the audacity to say "It's not me- its you, honey" every time i said "ow" while he yanked away. I told him to just hand me the hemostats and that I would remove them myself as I am gentler with a smallmouth bass when removing a hook from its mouth. At one point they had me in the wrong room, so they led me and my drainage tube wrapped in a sheet through the receptionarea because they had construction going on. Classy.
Now I will have to write a glowing review on Dr. Samuel Logan who redid my work. I thought I would have to drive from MI to chicago to find a good PS when just the opposite is true.
