I have met with two surgeons, Dr. Michael Self and...
Found the perfect surgeon for my procedure. Dr. Steven Warnock!!
This decision has been really hard. I met 3 board certified plastic surgeons and have decided to go with Dr. Steven Warnock. He is very thorough, honest about expectations, and was involved through the entire consult measuring and recommending implant sizes. He answered all of our questions without hesitation and was not negative about other surgeons. He was very confident and upfront about his credentials.
As you can see from my previous posts, I initially met Dr. Self based on a very enthusiastic recommendation from my hair dresser. I’m convinced she could sell anyone anything so I have to approach anyone recommended by her with that in mind. I absolutely loved Dr. Self. He spent time explaining everything to us. I was ready to cancel my other appointment and sign right then. I started looking online and really couldn’t find a ton of information on him either good or bad. I couldn’t really find anyone else who had even heard of him. I decided to meet at least one more surgeon.
Next we met Dr. Pledger based on a recommendation from the wife of a guy I work with. She loves Dr. Pledger. I read some mixed reviews on him but was encouraged that he was well known. He was also very thorough, and honest about expectations. I still felt more comfortable with Dr. Self but my husband thought Dr. Pledger was the best choice. It was really confusing and frustrating because I doubted my instinct. Regardless, I called Dr. Pledgers office and scheduled my surgery.
I woke up the next day feeling like I should see one more person. I read excellent reviews about Dr. Warnock on this site. I don’t know anyone who has had a procedure done by him but felt like meeting him would help me make my decision between Dr. Self and Dr. Pledger.
Dr. Warnock was really great. He was so nice, and was very engaging. He did a breast examination prior to talking to me about surgery. He was very thorough when going through my medical history. He explained the recovery process and was very honest about what to expect. With anything he recommended he gave me different options of outcomes. He spent over 2 hours with us measuring and going through implant sizes based on my shape. My husband and I both knew he was the perfect surgeon to do my procedure. I knew I would sign up and pay in full that day. His nurse came in after giving us time to talk about it and to my surprise quoted me about $1,500 less than the other two surgeons. We paid in full, scheduled my surgery and I am so excited and relieved to have met him.
I can’t wait until June 20th!! Actually, I can't wait until 6 weeks after June 20th!!
2 weeks po with before and afters
So far I am pleased. I wish I could see the final result overall. I love Dr. Warnock. He has a great sense of humor and answers any of my questions. I would recommend my friends or family to him.
