I had breast implants with Dr. C in 2008. He loves his work (although what man wouldn't want to be around boobs all day lol), but seriously takes his job as an art and helps 'sculpt' your body. I am very happy with the results...

When I went for my consultation at the beginning of this month Dr. Cummings spent over an hour and a half answering all of my questions. He got a good idea of the look I was going for and I feel confident he will deliver those results. He is extremely personable and makes you feel very comfortable, which I really liked. I will update more after surgery.

I am unhappy with my results from Dr. Cummings. He was fantastic at my consult and said he customizes his procedures on the table and doesn't discuss specifics about size, such as cc's and cup sizes, especially since cup sizes can vary a lot by person and bra. I was excited about the surgery and was confident he would do a good job, mostly because he seemed so confident. I should have had a red flag come up before hand when he never saw or touched my actual breasts until I was on the operating table about to be put under anesthesia. He saw the pre-op photos taken by someone in his office and discussed everything based on those. He came into the room before the surgery to make incision marks and get a final word on size. I asked him to give me the most he could fit. I am pleased with the size. (although I would have been okay with them a little larger too) However, I have had issues from the beginning that he assured me was normal healing and basically wanted to wait until 6 months to really see the final results. His speedy recovery methods made the recovery decent, however I find it odd that he only does 2 follow up appointments, one at one week post op and one at 6 months post op. Fine, whatever. So, I scheduled my 6 month follow up a little early because we were moving out of state. I addressed my concerns with him again, animation deformity and my right implant falling outward to my side. Basically he thought since he was able to improve the symmetry that all was good. He dismissed my concerns and sent me on my way. Well, here I am 2 more months later and still not happy. In fact, things are getting worse. I emailed my concerns along with more pictures and got a generic voicemail response that based on the pre-op pics everything looks fine. Well, everything isn't fine and my concerns were again dismissed. I think I need a revision, and I am incredibly upset about the money I spent only to require more surgery and to have him dismiss my concerns.

Dr. Cummings is very funny and nice. Pre-op visit went great! I did not feel rushed. He answered my questions for the majority but not completely on some questions. He would not commit to size or cc's. He is great if you are going to just increase size or first time BA with no issues. After surgery I did not see him at all. The nurses were great but I expected him to at least pop in to ask how I was before being sent home. I had issues with one breast swelling the nurse "Christi" was very helpful and Dr Cummings saw me and reassured me everything would be fine and it was! I am disappointed that the placent of the plant is low on my chest however he used existing pockets. I would have appreciated the expertise of the surgeon to tell me and make the necessary adjustments. It may have been because pocket adjustment may not have been his specialty or that he doesn't have the trained eye in this area. (This would saver from having to have a second revision). I currently have lateral displacement along with the pockets sitting to low. Otherwise they do look great and look very natural. I've consulted other surgeons that have told me if pockets were adjusted the placement of the implants would be higher my breasts would look larger with better projection. I feel the 510 cc look small which is probably due to the pocket.

He is amazing, intelligent and honest, hes board certifed with over 30 years experience. Staff is very friendly and take really good care of you.
I had a great experience with Dr Cummings. I already love my implants even though they are clearly not done dropping and fluffing. I felt very comfortable letting Dr Cummings operate on me. And I can't wait to see the finished outcome :)
