MY PERSONAL REVIEW
 

 

Dr. Lindr gave me a breast lift and augmentation. He miscalculated the size, and I ended up with breasts nearly twice the size we expected. Additionally, he left terrible scars, assymetry in the shape of my breast and size of my nipples (one of which is the size of the bottom of a beer can). Dr. Lidner has great advertising and is very confident and charismatic, however my personal experience indicated a terrible lack of surgical skill. The size of my breasts has caused me terrible pain and embarrassment (not to mention the nipple that is so huge no bra or bathing suit will contain. I am also left with many inches of raised and painful scars so that I cannot wear a normal underwire bra without painful abbrasion. Additonally, soon I will have to pay over $12,000 dollars to have this terrible mess corrected so that I am not continually physically uncomfortable. To his credit, Dr. Lidner refunded me half the cost of my procedure, but this can never compensate the pain, embarrassment, time and money this has cost me. Dr. Lidner has a very glamerous persona, but I highly suggest finding someone who is less about show and more about results. I am ashamed I was so vain as to get this procedure in the first place, but that still does not mean I deserved such terrible results.
