I Almost Lost my Life Not Worth It...seek Better Doctor in Oahu - Kahului, HI

I regret going to Dr. Yu. I almost lost my life. ...

I regret going to Dr. Yu. I almost lost my life. My lungs to collapsed due to breast implants. I was rushed to emergency. After couple of days of surgery I told the staff and Doctor I was coughing and couldn't breath, they just ignored me. Until I went to had xray done on other Clinic, Doctor found out I had
collapsed lungs for over a weak. They rushed me to emergency. I spent 2 days in ICU 8 days additional days in hospital room. I'm still out patient continue dealing with the complications. My right boobs is bigger and higher than the left. I told them to use same size but obviously didn't follow what I preferred. And until now I still feeling numbness underneath my right breast. I am afraid to go back to his clinic. I have lost my trust.


What a shame so sorry to hear this. I am not quite sure what has happened within the last year but he has changed not sure why, I also am a client or was should I say up until recently for many years. The staff & Dr. Yu has become arrogant, rushes through procedures & when you complain about something that is not done right he acts as if you are ignorant & that's what its supposed to look like he would say BUT he sure likes your money that's a fact & he is not inexpensive, so many things he could have done to correct certain issues which would take this whole page to write as I also had breast implants put in by him, I now have scars which he said would go away, never did Put it this way last time I went which was this year I left in pain and in tears he handed me ice in a zip lock baggy & walked out of the room, I had to go to another Dr to resolve my issue, I did not even get a call to ask what happened. I was a good client but you are right, there are Dr's that take their jobs serious. I would suggest to people to make sure you ask a lot of questions, get your concerns answered & in writing & if you decide to see this Dr. Please make sure he does not brush off your concerns as that is exactly what he did to me. I still have a scar on my face from a blood clot left unattended I had to email a photo to him of it he said that's not a blood clot of course it was the weekend & he does not work weekends, sure enough when I went in during his working days yep it was a blood clot he had to drain so now I am scarred but I trusted him! I hope you feel better soon & he takes care of your situation. He should of called me personally to resolve these issues this to me looking back shows lack of empathy.

Wow. That's a traumatic experience to go through. Sounds like someone dropped the ball during your procedure. :( Good luck in your follow up and take care of yourself in the meantime. I would be in touch with the board of medicine in your state for sure to find out my options.

I truly believe that they have used too much anesthesia, cause my lungs to collapsed. I can still feel numbness below my breast where the insertion was. My right breast is way bigger and higher the the left.
