My Breasts Are Uneven and Have a Implant in my Shoulder/ my Eyes Looks Like a Monster It is Hollow and Scary - Sacramento, CA

Horrible! And now that I have an implant in my shoulder which is very painful my dr. makes my appts. for early in the morning or 6 weeks out. Be prepared to get forgotten once your procedure is over. I have spent over 35 thousand dollars there you would think I would be treated a little nicerIf you plan on having surgery with Dr. Green be prepared to have lots of money for redo's. And be prepared for very early wakeup appointments when he doesnt want to see you and appointment scheduled a least 6 weeks out to hopefully get rid of you.
Currently I have an implant lodged up in my shoulder blade. Dr. Green was aware of the problem. I was told in order to have it uncapsuled it would be another 1600 dollars on top of the 11, 000,00. yep thats 11 thousand.that I already paid.That's just for one procedure. I have paid Dr. Green and the plastic surgery center over over 35 thousand dollars. You think I would be treated a little nicer! Now they won't see me or they make my appointment for 8:30 in the morning!! I would strongly advise seeing someone with a more time to see you in the event you have issues like I have.

If your looking for facial plastic surgery I would advise Dr. Sykes in Roseville
Body contouring Dr. Kaufman and Clark. I have seen and heard from a few of my friends that they are great!

Do not make the same mistake I did and trust the one who says trust me.

Thank you for sharing your story on RealSelf despite your disappointment. Just curious, what type of lift and what type/size implants implants did you get? Hoping you can get the results you want soon. Take care!

Too much fat removed and breast implant lodged up in my shoulder area

Here are some photos. I guess I should say that Dr. Green did try to do a fat graph to my lower lids which made them a bit better, but now it seems it has all gone away. I am left with the ugliest eyes. I wish I would have never done it.
Omg I'm sorry to hear ! I hope you're able to get things resolved soon :-(((

After a really in depth meeting with Dr. Green I do see that there was nothing he could do, it was my skin. And my bodies reacti

Today the 14th of jan I had a meeting with Dr. Green. His professionalism is staggering. He met with me in spite of me writing all these bad things about him. With his sleeves rolled up so to speak in earnest of how to attack the problems I believe I am having to get to a happy medium. I am truly impressed. After discussing these issues for about an hour., plastic surgeon time is pretty expensive, we came out with a plan. I feel like an absolute ogar. My breast would always reject the implant that is not his fault, but he is willing to fix it for me. My eyes was not his fault either it just the way the fat and skin fall on this part of my face, but he has taken his time to help fix the problem to the best of his ability. I feel so terrible. I highly doubt that any other plastic surgeon would ever go this far to help you get the satisfied result that Dr. Green has with me. I do thank him for his patience along with the staff of the plastic surgery center, and do humbly stand corrected. I did not say anything in the post or past reviews that was false, it was more my perception of the way the procedure was to turn out. That is why it is so important that before you have plastic surgery you have the proper expectations. I learned this very valuable lesson. I am going to have the implants removed and the breast lifted again and Dr. Green in his generosity has agreed to wave his fees all I am being charged are OR fees. This is a very gracious offer. And as far as the eyes we both believe that they do not look so badly that we can live with the result now and be happy. This is the final result in discussion I will post pictures of my new breasts w/o implants after I have them I just know they are going to be beautiful!!
Hi there! I am happy that you got yout issues solved with Dr. Green. Sometimes, we are really hard on ourselves, and we are our worst critic. Your eyes look great to me. I don't see anything wrong with them. =) Sorry about your implants. I just did mine two weeks ago. I told myself, if I come across any problems (bottom out, capsular, etc), I will just remove them and accept the fact that my body doesn't like foreign object in there. Best wishes to you!

I agree with you. I pray that you have a great experience and you get the breast and the image that you have in your head. You will my situation was rare, of course! But I am looking forward to having smaller breasts that look good I have full confidence that Dr, Green will do a great job. If anything to get rid of me. :)
