A Life Changing Breast Implant Revision With Dr. Glenn Lyle - Raleigh-Durham, NC

I am a 31 year old wife, mother of 2, and fitness...

I am a 31 year old wife, mother of 2, and fitness enthusiast. I had my inicial Breast Augmentation done 9 years ago in Pittsburgh, PA. I was very young at the time, and did not do the proper research in choosing a skilled Plastic Surgeon. I had over the muscle, saline implants, that were terrifyingly over-filled. I had rock hard, round, rippled, bowling balls on my chest. I became accustomed to living a life camouflaging my breasts, and conforming to a lifestyle in absolute discomfort. I am a very petite woman, so having large D-Cup breasts was incredibly disproportianate to my frame. To say that I hated the way that I looked would be a understatement. I actually convinced myself that this would be the consequences of my actions for the rest of my life. My trust and faith in Plastic Surgeons was diminished by this botched Breast Augmentation I received 9 years ago. After living many years this way, I finally realized I couldn't do it anymore. This decision was not something I came upon lightly. My children are my number one priority, and it felt selfish for me to move forward with this. But at the same time, I was completely miserable in my body. I am a very active woman, I place a huge importance on personal wellness, and living a life of discomfort was becoming a horrific burden on me.
After doing significant research on Plastic Surgeons in the Raleigh area, I kept coming back to Raleigh Plastic Surgery Center. Dr. Glenn Lyle. With trembling hands, I called and scheduled my consultation with Dr. Lyle. From that moment on, my life was honestly changed forever.
I was beyond terrified walking into his office that morning, but as I entered I was immediately greeted by a smiling face, and a calming environment. I was never scared of the thought of a potential surgery, I was mortified at the image of having to reveal my breasts to a Doctor, knowing that they were horribly deformed. After filling out the necessary paperwork, Catherine, Dr. Lyle's nurse, took me to the consultation room and chatted with me for a bit. She made me feel a lot more comfortable, it was like talking with a very understanding girlfriend. As I changed into the gown, I began to cry. I insisted to my husband that I go alone, I felt that it was important for me to face this on my own, and we agreed that once I decided upon a Doctor, he would then meet with him.
Dr. Lyle entered the exam room with a calming presence. Maybe he sensed my apprehension, or he simply saw my eyes that were filled with tears. Typically one should be filled with quite the opposite in emotions when faced with the possibility of receiving a elective, positive procedure. However, for me this was out of necessity.
Dr. Lyle sat down in the exam room first. He talked to me about ME, MY LIFE, NOT why I was there. This spoke volumes about the type of Doctor that he is. He didn't rush in and hustle me through a consultation simply to move onto the next. Dr. Lyle made me feel completely comfortable in his presence before even moving onto examin me.
I was humiliated by the appearance of my breasts, but the simple gesture of Dr. Lyle sitting to talk with me prior to the exam made a huge difference in how I felt about him looking at me. I didn't even like my own husband seeing me naked, let alone a stranger. As he stood up to begin the official consultation, he talked to me the entire time. In him doing this, it helped ease my nerves.
Dr. Lyle's vast experience, impressive credentials, and incredible knowledge in Breast Augmentation Revision was absolutely refelected in the consultation. He explained in great detail what the course of action would be to correct my Breasts, with MY aesthetic goals being in the forefront of the surgical plan. He was honest, compassionate, knowledgeable, and very respectful. After completing the consultation, he came BACK in the room to ask me again if I had any more questions. He recognized that all of this was very overwhelming, and sometimes after giving it a few minutes to ponder, patients may have more questions. This blew me away! I was so impressed!
I was given ALL of my pricing written out and described. There were NO hidden costs. Dr. Lyle insisted that my husband come in and meet with him as well so that he had the chance to be a part of the decision making process as well. I was not pressured or rushed into scheduling a surgery date, I was encouraged to discuss it and think it over.
After meeting with Dr. Lyle I knew immediately that he was the Doctor for me.
Raleigh-Durham Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Lyle has restored my faith and trust in Plastic Surgeons. Everything from the consultation, to the morning of surgery, to the after care has been nothing short of phenomenal! Dr. Lyle's immense knowledge in Breast Augmentation Revision is 100% reflective in his artistic proficiency. I knew that my particular case was very complex, but he took the time to explain everything to me in great detail, and knew precisely how to help me achieve the results that I wanted. He expressed compassion for my situation, and truly cares about me as his patient. Dr. Lyle has exceeded any and all expectations that I could have had. He went above and beyond for me throughout this emotional journey of my revision. He called me from a concert with his son to answer my questions of concern postoperatively, went into the surgical center on a Saturday morning to see me after a rough night of painful swelling, and expressed immense patience with me through it all! The results Dr. Lyle has given me through my Revisions has been life changing. I went from a woman who couldn't stand looking in the mirror, or wearing a bikini, to a woman with a restored self confidence, and newfound appreciation for living life to the fullest. Dr. Lyle's entire team of impressive nurses and anesthesiologist, are among the best I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. I feel so incredibly fortunate to have found such a highly skilled, knowledgeable, and honest surgeon. What Dr. Lyle has done for me I am forever grateful to him for. He has transformed what I was convinced to be a forever deformed consequence of poor decision making, into unimaginably beautiful results! I feel better than I ever thought possible, and I have Dr. Lyle to Thank for that. His commitment to his patience doesn't end after the surgery either. He has continued to follow up with me throughout my healing process. If you are looking for a expert in the field of Plastic Surgery, Dr. Lyle is it!
