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.
