I spoke to my PS several times but all he wasnt to do is cut. I dont know if I trust him to try to fix the problem HELP!
Seeking Plastic Surgeon for 2nd Opinion?
I am sorry to hear about the complication you experienced after breast reduction surgery. Unfortunately, these complications can occur and can be quite frustrating/stressful for both patient and plastic surgeon. At this point, there are both surgical and nonsurgical treatment options to be considered.
In regards to finding a plastic surgeon for 2nd opinion consultation, I would suggest starting with the American Society of Plastic Surgery and/or the Aesthetic Society of Plastic Surgery to obtain a list of well experienced board-certified plastic surgeons.
Then, I would suggest you visit a few surgeons whose practices concentrate him on breast surgery. Ask to see lots of examples of their work and preferably speak/see patients who have had similar procedures done. You will find, while doing your due diligence, that there are many different “specialties” who will offer their services to you; again, I strongly recommend you concentrate on surgeons certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
I hope this helps.
2nd Opinion; Looking for a Doctor in Los Angeles South Bay Area?
There are many options here to replace volume and get rid of calcified, dystrophic tissue. Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of breast surgeries each year. Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results. Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA
