I had breast reduction revision done in March 2011. The first words out of surgery I remember are, "I took more out of the right breast than I thought I would." Turns out she totally screwed up and I can't find padding to make me look even so I can't wear tight clothing. I've asked for all the money back but she refuses; however, she did say she would do the exact same surgery again IN HER OFFICE under vicodin and valium (not in the hospital under general anesthesia like the first time), and after a repeat visit of me asking for my money back (I wasn't even being mean to her - I was in tears actually) she said, "That isn't going to happen. It's done. Get over it. At least you don't have cancer." What is worse is that I have chronic nerve pain now that she says is not uncommon and can last 3-5 years. Why didn't she warn me if it isn't uncommon? I'm sleeping propped up every night because if I lie flat it aches really bad all the next day. It has been 9 months and I'm in near-constant pain, and out over $7000 (including hosptial costs). I had really liked her in the consultations and she had kept telling me I would love the results - well I don't. She isn't as charming after she messed up!
