MY PERSONAL REVIEW
 

 

I had saline breast implants in 2005.I have had 3 subsequent revisions with this doctor and the results haven't changed that much. After you have a procedure done, you wait six months or up to a year to see the results. There is a lot of waiting involved, unless you are lucky and everything goes right for you from the get go. Otherwise you have a revision, and then another, and another and then wait another 6 months to a year or longer in between each. I found this doctor to have poor bedside manner at times. Before one of the revisions I asked a question and was told "don't be negative" in harsh tones.It was not the first or last time I was spoken to this way. I went for second opinions and both doctors told me that less than 5% percent of women have the particular problem I am having. Yet he insisted that it happens much more often. If that is true, then I can only assume that it happens a lot in his patients due to technique. They always want to blame it on your body, and you really can't do much about it. Before you go in you sign all kinds of papers releasing them of any liability. My question is how is the patient ever protected? I was given no advice to help heal except for waiting timelines which then got extended further as things were not progressing. I have been waiting nearly four years now. It has been very stressful. The doctor doesn't explain things well, lacks compassion, and is inconsistent from one appointment to the next. If you send an email, it generally take up to 2 weeks before you hear anything back, if you get a response at all. I would choose someone else if you are considering plasic surgery... Lacking the artistry part!
