Disfigured - Melbourne - Melbourne, FL

I received the wrong type implants in two...

I received the wrong type implants in two different sizes and my $7,000.00 contract with the doctor has become $7,550.00 due to the surgery center billing me on top of it. The office continually ignores my calls and emails. Beware!!! Find another doctor. I will have to go through this whole procedure again to fix my breasts. More time off work, more money, bigger scars and the pain of surgery again. Joy joy. I am filing a lawsuit against the doctor and his clinic & writing the medical board.

Inverted nipple & more bills from this botched surgery

It just keeps getting worse!! The nipple on the substantially smaller breast has now become inverted. I have received yet ANOTHER bill from the surgery center, this time for $350.00. Still no word or response from the Doctor(?) or his staff.

Painful Pancake Breast

The substantially smaller breast with the inverted nipple has now started to catch the skin under my breast and stick. It is painful.

Castellon still not reponding.

Calling and emailing the office daily... NO RESPONSE WHATSOEVER.
Melbourne Plastic Surgeon

Terrible. Promised everything and didn't actually listen to a word I said. I have two completely different sized breasts with nipples that now point in two different directions. Not the look I was going for, and you probably aren't either. Find another plastic surgeon, this one is the worst!

Yes, I have been hoping that he would do the right thing and refund my money so I could have my breasts fixed, but apparently he is only in it for the money. I am preparing my complaint with my lawyer. Thank you!

That is horrible! I had a similar issue with my surgeon and know how it feels to just have your emails and calls ignored! So much for compassion and patient care. Please keep us posted on how everything turns out and I would love the name of your attorney as most won't take PS cases.

Sorry to hear that you have this issue, I too was given different size implants to try to correct the asymmetry at first it was barely noticeable but after the swelling was going, it became more noticeable specially when I', naked. I planned to go back the dr to let him fix it but he was having staff issue so I got a 2nd opinion and thought she new how to fix it more than what he said. If I would use the first dr. his fee would be free but since I am using a new dr I will pay for her. I go in thursday dec. 12. Take a deep breath know that dr. use different sizes. I really think he put the smaller implant in the wrong breast but he say no..My original surgery was $8000 for full tummy tuck, lbreast lift and implants now I will pay another $4000..I thought I was saving by waiting until we moved to south america but i guess not

Thank you for sharing your story on RealSelf despite your disappointment. Was your doctor attempting to correct some asymmetry with 2 different sized implants? I hear of this often. Did you notice the asymmetry right away? Hoping you can find a solution soon. Keep us posted!
