Breast Aug. Saline with Dr. Freiman - Coral Gables, FL

Flying in to get my surgery with him Aug 29 and...

Flying in to get my surgery with him Aug 29 and 30th. Have been looking forward to leaving a review here on the website for a while now. I do know that he has no bad record or disciplinary history. We obviously cannot say that for the anesthesiologist that he had. Still looking forward to my consultation and surgery! Will be updating for pictures of my before and after!

update

So my anesthesiologist is going to be Dr. Vincent Conte ME #49751. He has years of experience and is board certified. Putting together an itinerary right now. By the way, I have been told the staff nurse charged $150 per day. I am broken out in hives all over my face. I have not had hives in all my 24 years. I do not know what happened. Its bothering me because I am already nervous for surgery. I guess I never thought about my nerves to be honest. I only focused on the money for my boobs and having them. I thought I am way too tough from the things I have endured but it doesnt mean I am not going to totally want my mom right by my side. I suggest anyone traveling to bring somebody with you. Time to stick this out.

My before pictures

I am 5'1 36B in the band but the cups are always loose. My skin is pretty stretchy already from my son.. So I hope that is a plus for my implants somehow? Haha.

Boobies.

I had a great experience. Not only with Dr. Freiman but my driver Nelly as well. I highly recomend if you are coming from out of state to ask for her. She even brought me soup to eat after surgery and an ice cold gatorade. She brought me breakfast as well on the way to my follow up. She gave me the best pep talk on the way to surgery. She was a real friend. I am urgin anyone that needs a driver for Miami to ask your coordinator at Coral Gables for Nelly. I am pretty sure she is the only driver for them anyways. I hope my mom decides to come out to Coral Gables because I am going to have another excuse to be back in Miami! My hotel was beautiful. I stayed at "Crowne Plaza" Coming from Las Vegas where nobody says hello or smiles it was so nice to have that. The room service was absolutely delicious. They have alot to choose from. My bed and big screen tv were just what i needed to relax in. One boob is 425cc and the other is 450cc high profile. Dr. Freiman has been attentive with all my concerns and questions. So excited for them to heal.

What to expect at Coral Gables.

I fully trusted Dr. Freiman, not Coral Gables. It was not fair the level if disorganization I experienced. Then again, you get what you pay for. Its like drive-thru breast augmentation. Not a sit down, look over the menu type of setting. Its loud with all the Cuban ladies reminding me of my grandma, disorganized with like4 doctors performing 3 surgeries a day. You wait alot. Like if they give you a specific time. Plan on that meaning an hour wait. Or switchig your surgery from 6am to 11am. True story. Either way, Nelly was good, Dr. Freiman is professional and attentive when I thogught something was wrong. And I love my results.

3 weeks post op!!!

My scarson my nipples are almost invisible. The bruising is almost gone. Left boobie nipple is purple from a bruise. I tried on bras at VS for fun while shopping for a new sports bra and I fit into 32DD there.

Dr. Freiman knows what hes talking about. Trust him ladies and gents.

Gosh. I dont even know if anyone reads my update anymore but I really feel the need to express my positive results.
So first of all ladies.. My nipple incision is virually undetectable unless one of my girlfriends comes up 5 inches away from my boobs. Even then I see the look on their face whichis just plain old disbelief!! Dr. Freiman saved my boobs! No joke. Lol. If i were to have stayes in my hometown of Las Vegas for the augmentation I was about to go with a doctor that reccomended only 350-375ccs HIGH or MODERATE he says (my choice). He was so higly talked about here. Dr. Freiman had no second thoughts what so ever and told me bluntly that will not be big enough to achieve the "Miami" look. At first I had thought I wanted a surgeon that just asked me what I wanted. But if you think about it I was not the one in medical school perfecting my skills on breast augmentation was I? So I showed him the look I wanted and again, as he guessd I would, that look meant 425-450ccs high profile. I mean shit... I doubt anyone read all of that but I needed to vent. Everyday I wake up they are more beautiful as they heal. It has not even been a whole month yet. I still wear my sports bra to male sure they keep droping nicely I massage them plenty, which makes them so squishy! I bought nice cream for them from my farmer's market containing: pumpkin butter, shea, coconut oil, avocado oil, hemp, chamomile, and candula. Here is my almost 4 week post op photos!

I'm getting a BA with him in 2 weeks. Pretty nervous but glad I am reading so many good reviews about him! I'm worried I'm not going big enough... Are you happy with your size? I'm a 34 B..not full either. I really want to be a full D or DD. He suggested 500 cc's.

Thanks for the review! I agree with you on the office. I really like my surgery coordinator but it does seem very relaxed but loud if that makes sense. I do think Dr. Freiman does great work and I'm surprised he is still there. Yes, I came to Miami because my sis loves here and to get a more competitive cost. Glad you like your results. You look great!

The shape of your breast look very natural. Im thinking about going with saline but worried about rippling and hardness. Are they soft? Any rippling? Thanks
  • Reply
I had Dr. Freiman do my surgery and I was a small saggy A Cup.. I went with Saline 420cc your question about soft yes mine are soft and feel so great almost my own even this quickly after.. Rippling please be careful with this you need enough breast tissue to cover the implant so girls who are small to start and then go big big this occurs.. If you are small to start go as big as the tissue will cover and maybe it's not your final look but you let those implants heal and stretch that tissue out so you can later go bigger and it will cover the bigger implant then you do not have to worry about rippling... Good luck.. My scar is almost invisible, my outcome is better then I thought..

Thanks for your reply. Well I am a 34b. When I breastfed I went up to a D so I know my boobs have enough tissue to stretch. And I just want around 325cc which is not that big. I just hope I dont get rippling. :-) again yours look perfect!!

hello!! your breasts are beautiful and im happy for you!! i had a simular exp. and nelly was my driver also. every thing went exceptionally well with my surgery EXCEPT for nelly!! omg, she was so sweet and helpful when we were riding together. But that evening when i was finally in my right mind i recollected the money i gave her. She charged me 40 for picking me up, and 40 for bringing me back after surgery. thats 80. she told me my meds were 80 also. and that the gatorade and soup were expensive. Being under anestesia you DONT REALLY realize wtf is going on. i looked at my med receipt and it was only 45.00 why did she lie to me? and my soup and gatorade was probaly 7.00 all together. i called her back FURIOUS and all she said was shes NOT giving my $$ back and i need to catch a cab to my follow up appt...i couldnt belive it. She so took advantage of me

that really sucks. At some point I was going to be flat broke. And I respected that she still helped me out for no pay. I understand how she makes her living. Maybe she thought the meds were 80 because to be honest, I took a taxi to get my meds before I ever called her and my antibiotic, muscle relaxed, pain pill, and nausea pill all together was 94 bucks. :-(

did they say anything about getting a new anesthesiologist in? Just curious, because I'm flying in this winter. :) Thanks! I have Dr. Frieman also.

  • Reply
YES. My anesthesiologist will be Dr. Vincent Conte ME#49751

Janae.. They told me my anesthesiologist would be Vincent. It was literally 2 minutes before my surgery and a nice woman walks in and introduced herself as my anesthesiologist. I went with my gut. I am fine. I feel like money signs to Coral Gables. But then again, this was NOT surprising. The lady gave me a comfortable feeling and was really funny and easing my anxiety. :/

Thank you for taking the time to write about your journey on RealSelf! We love lurkers but it's even more fun to be able to check in on different members via their review. :) Will you have anyone accompanying you on your trip...perhaps to help you the first few days of your recovery? How long will you be in FL? Looking forward to your photos!
