I am writing this testimonial to help and give faith to others that may have been through a bad experience with plastic surgery and most important for those that want to avoid a horrible and costly experience with plastic surgery. Under a previous plastic surgeon, I had breast implants put in through the armpit (surgeon's preferred and recommended method), but I now know that is a area with a huge amount of bacteria. I immediately developed a large and painful hematoma.
I was told nothing needed to be done about it, but I now also know that the preferred course of action is to drain or remove the hematoma because that can lead to further complications like capsule contracture. I dealt with the painful and hard impalnt until two years later, the implant was rock hard and distorted. This was horribly painful and awful. The implant was removed and along with the scar tissue.
Two days later that new implant was fully deflated and the third surgery was performed to replace the leaking implant. This was all while I was trying to work my first job out of college. Well, I dealt with the smaller implant that looked nothing like the other until seven years later when that same implant developed a slow leak. South Florida has many plastic surgeons to choose from and I met with six surgeons total. I wrote down the plan that each surgeon gave me and they were very different. I was still not satisfied and very scared of having the same bad things happen again.
To my luck, I found Dr. Hilton Becker in Boca Raton, FL. This was an 1 and 45 minutes away, but after the experience I had I would come from anywhere to have Dr. Becker perform my surgery. After meeting with Dr. Becker and his team, I knew it would be okay and maybe I could look better than before. I was amazed at the vastly different techinques used and the surgery preparation explanation is very reassuring in nature. No hands even touch the impant (Dr. Becker's patented process/design), drains are used and this greatly reduces the risk of infection and down to no powder on the gloves used in the operating room. I choose the adjustable saline implant (Dr. Becker's patented design) because I had no idea what the other surgeon did and I wanted the chance to adjust the size for the best outcome.
Of course, all went as planned and I look way better than before and I could not be more pleased with the overall experience. The follow up care is amazing. The supporting staff of Janet, Sandy, Jen and Shelly are exceptional. They are precise and perfect like their leader, Dr. Becker.
Oh and the skin care line is exceptional. I was very skeptical in trying anything because I have been battling acne since the age of 9 with oral and topical medications. The glycolic acid wash is the best way to remove all the dead skin cells from the use of the Retin-A and the chemical free moisturizer is a must have for everyone. Yes, the skin care line is developed by Dr. Becker and he never stops with his advancements and achievements in the world of plastic surgery. Don't just take my word, google him. He is world renowed for a reason.
