I underwent a Breast lift 10 years ago that gave...
I made the decision to go with a different doctor yet again. One well-known plastic surgeon actually told me my case was too complicated and I probably shouldn't do anything, but I knew I couldn't live like that so it wasn't an option for me. After several consultations, I decided on Dr. Tehrani. We went with silicone gel implants and thankfully time healed my muscles enough so that the implants could be placed under them. We also used Strattice to help support my thinned out skin. I was immediately happy with the look and shape of my new breasts! What a huge difference! Unfortunately my joy was short-lived. In the months following surgery I had complications that arose from the Strattice. My wounds kept reopening and draining, and pieces of Strattice were actually oozing out of me. My Doctor kept cutting away the Strattice that my body wasn't incorporating, but after 6 months of draining from several open spots, and a hardening capsule on one side, we've made the decision to schedule a 5th surgery to remove any traces of the Strattice, which my body simply does not like. I feel its my only option at this point. Thank goodness I finally found a wonderful plastic surgeon whom I trust completely. He has welcomed my issues with open arms and the kind of warmth and caring that I've never seen in a plastic surgeon. He has never brushed me off, or minimized my concerns. He has stayed late for me, and he's gotten on the phone to talk with me when I was content to just leave a message for his nurse. During visits I always get his full attention, and I never feel rushed. He made me feel like I was his utmost priority from day 1, and that is priceless!

As a little cheer me up bonus in the face of all these complications, I've decided to go a little bigger in implant size. Something closer to the way I looked before kids.
Just a note about the incisions...
Scheduled my Revision for 8/7/14
I love Dr. Tehrani! I went to several doctors with great reputations but Dr. Tehrani was miles above the competition. He understood the gravity of my situation since I had so many prior surgeries and he relayed to me realistic expectations, which I really appreciated. He has taken my perception of a plastic surgeon to a whole other level with the way he genuinely cared for me after surgery. Its easy for someone to love their plastic surgeon when they get a fabulous result on the first try, but the real meat and potatoes of a doctor lies in the not-so-glamourous cases. When complications arise, and the unforeseen happens, does he place blame? Does he feed you lies that it will correct itself or go away in time? Does he make you wait in his waiting room endlessly while tending to new consultations and then rush through or push you out the door? Does he treat you like you are to blame? I experienced these things from my first Plastic Surgeon 10 years ago, and I know the drill quite well. Dr. Tehrani did NONE of these things when I had complications. In fact he was totally the opposite of my first plastic surgeon! Dr. Tehrani was wonderful! He welcomed me and my barrage of problems with open arms, and treated me like his number one priority. I never waited more than 10 minutes in the waiting room. His staff would squeeze an appointment in for me no matter how booked he was, and he gave me his undivided attention at every single follow-up. He stayed positive when I felt like giving up, and he kept introducing new strategies to help my body heal. More than anything, he gave me honesty and genuinely cared about me through every obstacle. I have the utmost faith in him as a plastic surgeon that he would never steer me wrong because he is the opposite of all those arrogant, so-called infallible doctors out there. He is REAL, genuine, and a truly gifted artist. I know I am in the best of hands with him and I wouldn't trust my body or my face to anyone else.
