Although my decision to have breast augmentation was the best *decision* I've ever made, going with Rick Silverman was by far the best choice EVER!
I've known Rick for several years so when the opportunity to finally get my BA done, he was the obvious choice. I went to see him for a consult but left a bit disappointed after I was told the cost of the surgery. Def. more than what I had planned to spend. So then my search for other surgeons began and once I found someone who I thought had the ideal price, it all went downhill from there. I will be sure to write a review about my experience with this particular provider.
In any case, I found myself calling Rick's office almost in tears after the many disappointments and being talked down to by the other surgeon's practice. His assistant welcomed me with opened arms and reassured me that things would be okay. They worked out a feasible way to meet the payments, were extremely flexible with the surgery date, were very very open to pre-op and post op visits whenever I felt like going in and asking questions, etc. They were quick and responsive when it came to email/mailing of documents also.
Dr. Silverman himself is very down to earth and real. Im in the bodybuilding and fitness industry and he knew exactly the kind of results I wanted. He was also very cautious as to not go overboard with the implant size (yes, I was suffering a mild case of "boobie greed"). His post-op pain therapy has also been incredible. I've felt hardly any pain...just some discomfort at the incision site and a bit of soreness from the swelling. I remember the other surgeon saying I would need some sort of "pain pump" with tubes inserted into my boobs and stuff and now that I look back I think he was NUTS!
I am feeling great and healing extremely well and fast. I highly recommend Dr. Silverman as he's one of a kind in a world of many! I hope he reads this because he's completely changed my life!
