Breast Augmentation (Swapping out Older Saline Implants for Silicone) - Carmichael, CA

If you are looking to have a breast augmentation; I would encourage you to look elsewhere other than Dr. Semlacher. He is arrogant, apathetic, has poor communication skills, does not take the time to really understand his patients needs and desires.
I recently went to him and had a suboptimal result which should have been apparent during the procedure. He then offered up some alternatives to fix the problem. Instead of taking responsibility for his shortcomings he said I could gain weight (since it was my fault I have always been thin), get alloderm (pig skin) and/or he could do fat injections into the breast. I denied these alternatives. He went back in to place a different implant style and asked the entire staff which implant looked best instead of using his own judgement/expertise to make the decision, isn't he the Plastic Surgeon?
Again, poor communication with another suboptimal result second time around. Do not waste your time or money.

Sorry to hear you are disappointed with your results. How long ago did you have your first breast aug? What seemed to be the issue with the first surgery? Are you able to tell if you prefer the silicone over saline? Will you wait and seek another revision? Hang in there!
