PS performed a full anchor BL, mind you I'm 5'5" ht., 111 lbs, don't have children was a b cup before BL and after and I don't have sun dammaged skin.
NEVER mentioned it during the consultaion that I would be left horizontal scars, only said she was doing a vertical scar. Left breast now droops 4 months after procedure, which means she OBVIOUSLY undercorrected. A total rip off.
Plastic surgeons have proven to me, from her performance that they are out for a quick buck. When I mention the horizontal scars in the subsequent follow-up visits, she totally minimizes my concerns. And, that, is what hurts the most!
First PS sent me to a dermatologist ($180) for a...

She became very dodgy after my complaint and called me in June 2010 to state she didn't think she could help me and would refund her surgical fee if I signed a waiver that would prevent me from complaining publicly about her results (in print or online). I have her lawyers waiver still with me, and can send copies of it to anyone, which I didn't sign or mail back. You can view my results on realself under the heading "What is the best option for a breast lift revision?" and read what the PS commented/recommended. I'm not deluded or an alarmist, but I knew she did a terrible job.
Fastforward one year later from original breast lift: I had revision BL surgery for the still ptotic left breast and scar revision in the right breast. I am still in the healing phase so I won't know the full results for another 1-3 months. I have now spent $20,000, between the 1st surgery and the 2nd, but I'm not out of the dark yet. 2nd PS is now injecting scars with Kenalog (which 1st PS should have been doing from the start once the inframmary scars were turning hypertrophic.) I just had my first V-beam laser treatment today ($450) to reduce the redness and visible capillaries that are a result of the Kenalog injection + revisional surgery.
Dismissed my concerns. Poor outcome which obviously were a result of extremely poor planning. Little communication before surgery. Would not recommend her to my worst enemy. My only mistake was choosing her as my PS. I urge anyone to please type "What is the best option for a breast lift revision?" in the custom search right here on realself.com to view my results from the first surgery which was posted last year and read what the surgeons on realself commented/recommended. I don't have pre-1st surgery pics to upload, they can only be scanned and then uploaded, which I will try to figure out how to do shortly.
