At the advice of an agent, at 23 years I had a breast aug done with implants that were way too big for my frame (500's). They were placed over the muscle, which fall over time due to the weight of the implant and nothing to aid in suspending them. In approximately Aug. 2002, I went to Dr. Kemsley requesting that he do a breast reduction to remove the significant amount of skin that was created by the heavy implants, essentially to do a breast reduction. I additionally requested that he replace the implants with smaller (250) implants and put them under the muscle for the support. At a follow up visit to this Dr. I asked if they had been placed under the muscle as I requested and I was told "yes". Long story short, my breasts started to sag again.. I had gone to another Dr. who after examining me, told me that they were in fact NOT placed under the muscle as I had requested, the new Dr. also told me that to placed them under the muscle would have been more difficult and that in all probability, this Dr. took the short cut and did not place them under the muscle. I called his office to try and speak with him explaining to the assistant that I was told the implants had been placed under the muscle as I requested. She put me on hold for a few minutes and came back on the line rudely arguing that I did not request the implants to be placed under the muscle and that the Dr. would be happy to redo them at the added price of another $9000.00!!! I felt that I was deceived and did not get what I asked for. This Dr. refused to honor what I asked for or re-do them as I requested, unless I paid him another approximate $9000.00!!!!!
