Dr. Riccardelli was a friendly doctor. I have 6 children and had a large weightloss and therefore was in need of a lift & augmentation. I used to be a DD, and wanted to return to that size. He advised me to only go to a size "D" with the augmentation with no real explanation as to why I couldn't return to a size "DD". Also, I was told I would have an upside down "T" incision, which is more like a "W". My left breast appears to be slightly smaller than the right breast. I've never had plastic surgery before, but overall I am not happy with the results achieved. I am not drooping anymore, but I can't say that I'm happy with the overall results. Because of the "W" scar, I cannot wear low cut tops, unless I wear a bra because the "cleveage" area is wider apart than I think it should be, allowing the exposure of the scar. I wanted to have future procedures, but do not know if it will be with this doctor.
