Dr. Basu and his staff are AWESOME!
I have waited 16 years to replace my saline implants. My implants were very hard, very round and definitely not natural looking. My first experience was extremely painful and I did not want to go thru that again. I am thin and was afraid that no matter what I did, it wouldn't look good. He listened to what I had to say and the look that I was trying to... more
I regret not doing a thorough research on silicone breast sizes the first time around back in Dec. 2013. My BWD is 13.5, I'm 5 2 tall & weigh 160 & my age is 42. I love my surgeon who did both surgeries but I now know I failed to communicate my desired outcome the first time around. I should have taken pictures & asked more questions. My doctor choose a range starting at 400cc HP but I chose... more
Dr. Vitenas and each member of his staff have made me feel at ease from the beginning and continue to do so. I was born with a tubular breast on my right side and my breasts were uneven. I had a breast augmentation in 2005 from another surgeon who placed saline implants above the muscle and put them in through my navel. I was pleased, but over time they began to harden and the right one... more
At the age of 22 I underwent my first breast augmentation surgery. At the time, I did not think to address my naturally very laterally breast. So, once an implant was added, my breasts were larger and even more lateral, forcing me to wear a bra and only certain bathing suit tops to really look "good". After 6 years, my implants had dropped pretty significantly, one much more than the other and... more
I had 225cc HP over the muscle implants put in April 5 last year and noticed a hardening on my right side this April, a year later. I had had a horrible staph infection in November near the nipple on the same side. Went to my PS this April to discuss the hardening and he confirmed capsular contracture (the top of the implant was bubbling up under the skin) and he only wanted to replace that... more

I have decided to exchange my large DDD's for smaller ones. I am so excited since I've made this decision and put down my deposit for my surgery. I am going to have them drained 2 days before my surgery. Although I pretty much know what size I'd like to be I'm thinking that having them drained may give me a little more visual insight. I don't particularly want to have deflated boobs but it's... more
I've had breast implants for 18 yrs now & am getting them redone this week w/ the new "gummy bear" implants. I'm also having a 2nd lower blepharoplasty done as well (9 yrs after one that turned out great & life changing in a VERY positive way but aging & heredity is not on my eyes side & effecting my confidence majorly. Although I should know what to expect, I'm very nervous! My implants were... more
I had my first breast augmentation 8 years ago after breast feeding my daughter. The decided to go with saline implants because that was what type of implants all my friends had. As the years have gone on I noticed more and more rippling and I could feel the implant and it bothered me daily. I was finally ready to switch from saline to silicone and knew as soon as I stepped into Dr. Basu's... more
I absolutely love my results! About 9 years ago I had a breast augmentation with saline implants. After having 2 kids, it seemed like my tissue became loose and sagged off of my implant (gross!). Dr Basu came to my rescue!! In the consultation, even though I felt hideous, he was like "it's ok, you've had 2 kids, this happens". He just made me feel really comfortable and took the time to... more
I was diagnosed with CC (capsular contracture) on my left side at 4 months post op and I am now 1 year and 2 months post op. I plan on getting revision by the end of the year which includes a capsulectomy (removing the capsule), implanting strattice, and replacing implant with a new one. I am dying to find others who had had this type of procedure done with the strattice as I... more
I had a breast lift and implants 10 years ago. They were too large so went back 6 months later and had reduced a little. 6 years ago my left implant started to pull up my middle sternum skin. i went in they put mesh to correct, however just a few years it happen again. I went in a few days ago (march 27,2013) when he unwrapped the dressing the implant was the same way to close to the sternum... more
I was very sad and depress for the past 3 years. I had breast augmentation surgery with poor results. My breast were saggy, lopside and deformed. Losing your body identity and also your self esteem is one of the worst things that can happen to you. I wanted to feel better. I wanted an improvement in the shape of my breasts. I wanted to feel complete again. more
18 years or so ago I had saline implants put in over the muscle, inframammary. I went from a B cup to a D with 350 & 300 cc implants. They looked so natural, I had to show my scar several times so people would believe me. About 6 months ago I decided to lose some weight Ive been piling on over the years. I began working out and almost immediately I noticed one of my breasts was misshapen... more
I had Saline implants that were 13 yrs old, feeling very firm and not moving much at all. I exchanged them for the Silicone Gel implants. I am so happy that I did!! Pros - they are so soft, natural looking and feeling. It am pleased with the outcome and feel that I made the right decision now for my body to change out the old implants. I was glad that Dr. Vitenas assisted me with the best size... more
Dr. Kutty and his team are fantastic! My implants had been in place for 24 yrs and simply were not pretty anymore. I was impressed at my consultation that Dr. Kutty was adamant that I remove the old implants, regardless if I chose him as my surgeon or another doctor.
Dr. Kutty spent ample time with my husband and I listening to our concerns and my desires. After a rather lengthy... more
I had my silicone implants removed about two years ago by Dr. Basu and replaced with saline implants. He also did a breast lift at the same time. He didn't listen to me when I said I wanted smaller implants. The scars from the breast lift are horrible and one of my breasts is square on the bottom. Very disappointed. I will be having the implants removed.Here are photos that illustrate the... more
