1 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision
Name is La Nique Please click on breast photo to enlarge so you will be able to see the botched breast, at least part of it. Here is how it went down. I was in capsulated. Fine I understand that can happen. He took out the implant and put another one in, which was the wrong size he had to redo it with a new implant, this created rippling. Took that size out and put another implant in, now I have a double bubble with the scar running right across the middle of my breast with the bottom half of implant hanging down. Bottom line, I had 4 surgeries on my left breast, simply when he tried to correct the first deformity, it created another and so on and so on. This is the KICKER!!!! I had my fourth surgery (he charged me $5,000 each time for a correction). My last surgery is being performed and I'm done, and I'm sitting in the recovery room, I look down at my breast and I see two half dollar size shape of puckered tethered skin. I look at the nurse and say, "what is this?" The nurse says OH MY GOD HE FORGOT TO SIT YOU UP. So the Dr.Bratner told me to wait for two hours while he does a liposuction on a patient. I waited. He took me back into the surgery room and performed yet another botched surgery on me. Like I said after all is said and Done I asked him please help me find a SPECIALIST that can CORRECT ME. Nothing...he walked away and I do believe he did not want another Dr. to see his botched surgery. I even laughed and said to him Dr. I look like Frankenstein's Bride....( I have a sense of humor) he smiled and let me leave with not even putting himself out to find someone for me that perhaps can eliminate the deformity at least a certain percentage. That is what infuriated me about his being so caviler. There are surgeries that can eliminate rippling and the Double Bubble. Surgery is not perfect, but to DISCOUNT a patient who is deformed and to at least not have the decorum, and empathy to take a seat and say I'm sorry how you feel and how this came out, but I will do everything I can to find a doctor who SPECIALIZES IN REVISON SURGERY....sure would have taken the Sting out watching him walk out of the room with a smile in the corner of his mouth when I said I look like Frankenstein's Bride Breast... can you recommend some one for me. Only to hear a NO. I live with the embarrassment as a single woman every time I decide to be intimate. Plus I cannot wear a bathing suite, lingerie, or any top if it is more then three inches from my breast bone. Everything has to be button up. To ad INSULT TO INJURY I read his notes of our surgery and he made a POINT to say she has a BOYFRIEND WHO IS YOUNGER THEN HER. Yes My boyfriend was several years younger then me, ( he guessed estimated) but we looked the same age, and what does that have to do with my surgery and his need to write that in a report. That is not professional to me. Why does he feel the need to write that in his report, is that an issue he has? What does that have to do with the price of apples....nothing. If you are reading this Dr. Bratner...you must at least pretend to care for your patient if you let them walk away deformed for the rest of their life. A kind word...please keep in contact and I will look for a REVISION SPECIALIST...anything to show you have empathy while I walk out of your door to spend my life apologizing for my Botched Breast. Compassion and concern you lacked, at least have a good bedside manner.
5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty
My sister referred me to him. Her friend had her nose done with him. Dr was great he explained what he would do for me. Doc says he can help give me some shape to my nose, remove the hump, also push up the tip..it has a long hang forward (when I smile I swear my nose can touch my lips!) and he will remove some of the tissue on the sides to make it not so wide. I also want it to look more symmetrical as it is uneven from the front view
