First breast lift and Breast Aug-less than decent results

Areola areas are now the size of my whole breasts....

areola areas are now the size of my whole breasts. suture string popped through areola area several times. Associate felt so bad for results offered to redo w/o dr fee, couldnt believe Dr. L did the work. Patronized me the whole time! Very self conscious and always wear a bra to sleep, need to have everything redone.

I had to go and have an additional procedure done...

I had to go and have an additional procedure done as the areola area was sutured way too tight that under my bra you could see puckering...so he cut the suture! (went from one bad problem to the next) throughout the years, BLUE SUTURE string has popped through the areola areas and has been a nightmare! This has truly hindered my self esteem! He initially told me it would take a four years for it to settle down...right after the statue of limitations! Very disappointing and hurtful, tried to correspond with him and discuss... I may post his responses as you will then understand how hurt and upset I am. After payment was received and surgery was done...so was I.....I
felt treatment was VERY DIFFERENT!

I am putting it out there that although I had less...

I am putting it out there that although I had less than great results with Dr. Leigh, he has taken the time to write several emails to me, viewed my photos, and is willing to "fix my areola area" once things heal completely from the (second surgery) that he didn't perform. I am beyond grateful and although it will be an expensive ordeal as I will have to fly there and find somewhere to stay while healing he did offer to take care of things with the exception of the anesthesia bill. I tuly respect and appreciate this and again it shows what kind of Dr and human being he is. Again, medicine is not a perfect science and although I have had a very very difficult time, because of his communication with me, and the way he has reached out, I truly respect and appreciate him. Thank you Dr. Leigh! I will keep you all updated so you can see the after results...everyone deserves a second chance and I intend to give it to him.

Attempt a corrective nipple surgery? Its been 9 months..If so who can fix this?

After two bad results with implants and lifts I am scared mentally and physically to go through anymore surgery....I was told by both Dr.s there was an issue with blood flow, one dr. blames one and the other blames the other. PLEASE advise me. several plastic surgeons said the nipple may not even take, I am truly devastated. I DONT have confidence in the surgeon who performed my procedures 9 months ago, nor do I trust him. I have been massaging the area 2x a day to get it to soften however there is still scar tissue there. PLEASE can someone HELP me I truly dont know who or where to turn. I am 53 in good health (thank g-d) have NEVER smoked or had any alcohol issues....PLEASE I need advice of someone who will be honest with me. (I live in Az) implants were suppose to be 425

Second surgery was performed by Dr. William Leighton

9 months ago I had my second set of implants and lift done by Dr. William Leighton of Scottsdale Az. I felt it only fair to make that known as my loss of nipple was from the second surgery not the first. Dr. Leighton did offer to fix things but at this point I am not certain what I will do. The devastating photos are from the second surgery.
Edina Plastic Surgeon

Please note this procedure was done 14 years ago. Since this posting, he has followed up with me and taken time to inquire how I am doing. I respect him for that. I also want to put it out there that when I requested my file his office staff was very professional and assisted me promptly.
