I live in UK. I had butt implant surgery by Dr G. of Aventura cosmetic centre in 2009. I noticed a few weeks after that there was a dent under the implant on the RHS and the LHS looked boxy and flat. I emailed the surgery (you can not talk to the Dr. directly and have to go through the patient coordinator which is frustrating in its self). I was told to wait and with time the result will improve. I sent them pictures in 2010 and the surgeon acknowledged there was a problem and agreed to fix it but I didn't have the funds to travel to Miami at the time, flights, hotel, and to pay for someone to come with me to look after me.

I have been trying to contact them again since last month. After several emails and phone calls, I have had no response.

I have contacted several lawyers to sue Dr G. But appearently the statuate of limitation is 2 years and legally I cant do anything.

I feel that Dr Gershenbaum intentionally delayed the matter by acknowledging that there is a problem but insisted that it takes time for the implants to settle. Which made sense at the time but now I am left disfigured, disappointed and frustrated.

Please DO NOT use aventura for your surgery as you will be left alone after they have taken your money.
