Butt Sagging Like a Grandma - Sugar Land, TX

Dr Nguyen mislead me to think that butt implants...

Dr Nguyen mislead me to think that butt implants would make my butt look lifted. I asked him over and over if he was sure it wouldn't sag, since it was over the muscle. He said that the muscle fascia would keep it from sagging. The truth is he doesn't have the knowledge to putt butt implants under the muscle. He refuses to do anything to fix it and refuses to acknowledge that my results are not desirable. He has offered to remove them, but that would leave me looking worse because my skin got stretched out. I wasted $6000. Now I'll have to save up another $6000 and find a more experienced Dr to fix this mess. Don't even mention the recovery time, I was suffering and draining for 3 months. He just wants money and if he messes you up, he won't try to fix it, he will just try to get rid of you. I was told not to come back anymore for follow ups. My modeling career is pretty much ruined.


I am writing with the permission of this patient to comment and clarify some comments made. First, I am truly sorry that my patient is not satisfied with the cosmetic outcome of her surgery. I take this very seriously. However, I have posted the before and after photo to demonstrate that her buttocks are fuller, lifted, perkier, and appropriately contoured. I truly cannot see where I can improve on the results. The patient is a very fit woman so fat grafting to the buttocks was not an option. We discussed in detail the option of using an implant and all of the risks prior to surgery. She had a safe surgery and all standards of care have been met or surpassed. As far as office visits and follow up, I have made my office extremely available to Ms. B. We have met on 19 office visits to discuss the surgery. I give all my surgery patients my cell phone number, so I am always available to my surgery patients at all times for any concerns as I have been for Ms. B. Finally, the reason why I did not offer to do any more surgery on this patient's buttocks is that there is not any other surgery that I feel I can perform safely that would further improve her outcome. I am always looking out for the safety of patients at all times. I think this lovely young woman has great physical attributes. Sometimes less is more when it comes to cosmetic surgery. I am still always available and in communication with Ms. B. Dr. Nguyen

There is no way I have been there 19 times to discuss the surgery. The only reason I had the surgery is because I was told it would make my butt look more lifted. Dr Nguyen physically lifted my butt up when he said it would be more lifted. When I was choosing a size I placed the implant in a much higher position on my body because I never envisioned it going to the bottom of my butt. I asked him before the surgery if it would sag and he said no. I have 4 docs saying I have ptosis and I have to go under the muscle. My time and money was wasted. I was lied to about what results I could expect. I was also told it would feel like well toned muscle and it feels like rocks. I can't even run anymore because it bounces up and down. Dr Nguyen told me why don't I go to another surgeon to get it put under the muscle? Dr Nguyen claims that my butt looks good, and that tells me that he doesn't know what a butt is supposed to look like. If this is a good result then why would I rather have my butt back to how it was before?
Why did you give this doctor 5 stars then?

Is this the butt of a 30 year old or 60 year old

I'd rather switch butts with my 60 year old mom and I could have saved 6k


Dr Nguyen you keep lying. If I was in your office 19 times you know it's because I went to you for a nose job and fillers etc. I have been in your office 2 times to complain about the results of my butt. It's like talking to a brick wall because you have no sympathy. I'm sharing my experience to try to help someone make an informed decision. You are lying when you say I was aware of the risks because you flat out told me it was impossible for it to sag because it was under the fascia. I was aware of the possibility of a seroma and my stitches splitting, which you may be counting those office visits into your 19 times you've seen me. And I didn't complain about the stitches splitting or the seroma because I was aware of those risks. I'm complaining about the sagging because I did my research and saw that another plastic surgeon didn't recommend going over the muscle, so I asked you if it was possible for it to sag and you told me no. I trusted you! If you told me there was a possibility I was ready to back out of the surgery. You never told me there was a possibility of that happening. You said it was impossible because you are putting it under the fascia and not just under the skin. Honestly I think you owe me a refund because you wasted my time and money promising me results that you couldn't deliver. And you have no sympathy for my situation. Imagine you went to a doctor to get something improved and you asked the doctor if you might be deformed and were told no and trusted the doc then you ended up being deformed and the doc said you look great and you were aware of the risks, but many other docs agree that you were deformed. I had a person tell me that I should tell you I didn't pay to have a grandma butt. I have been spending tons of money and time on working out and then you want to take credit for the after photo, but look at how my results were before I started obsessively working out. And no matter how much I work out I can never completely lift up sagging implants. I'm not an unreasonable person, but I don't expect to be lied to by my doctor.

Results and then results plus working out

Working out helped some, but it can't fix the problem. I can feel the implants pressing down and there is no muscle supporting the weight.


I understand you may not be happy with your results as an individual but I think you look gorgeous. You don't look old it looks beautiful at least in the picture.

I really need to post a picture of the side view for you to get an understanding of just how odd it looks on my body. It has the wrong shape and too much projection. I'd recommend getting a fat transplant or the smallest size implants with a fat transplant on the top and sides of the implant. It doesn't look anatomically correct, especially from a three quarter view. I have read some surgeons recommend oval shaped implants because it looks more natural. Anyways, I still hate the results and this surgery was a massive failure and Dr Nguyen didn't do a good job of setting my expectations and giving me an aesthetically pleasing outcome. I think he should have told me to go smaller and have fat transplanted above it. I don't really like that I got it over the muscle because the fascia allows it to bounce, it's feels like a sack with rocks hanging. If I try to jog it looks like I have puppies fighting in my sweatpants, it's painfully bouncy. : / try doing really heavy squats and deadlifts like for years instead of this operation, seriously...
i thought the pic u have up was a wish pic. In all honesty i think you butt looks incredible, thats the exact look im after, as i want to create a gluteal crease aswell which i have very little of. It proberbly will sag in a few years time though, but for the time being it looks amazing!!

Plastic surgery is not always pretty

I hired a trainer from November-May and worked out a ton, but I still hate the way it looks. I got made fun of by strangers at the gym and pool.


I don't think any docs in the US offer this, I don't think it's FDA approved.
I know that when people have plastic surgery procedures done, it's so hard on them mentally when it doesn't come out the way they wanted. But there is NO outcome that should ever make you feel like taking your life. You are beautiful inside and out regardless of how your procedure comes out, and you need to tell yourself that and truly believe it. The people talking about you at the pool are ignorant and immature for acting that way. I would NOT go back to that surgeon even if he offered to fix it at no cost because chances are if you don't like what he did the first time, you certainly won't like it the 2nd time either. Go to someone who knows this procedure well. Look at the before and after pics and talk to some of their patients. Dig a little deeper and find reviews and the background of the Dr. But don't dwell on it even though I know that is probably impossible. And don't EVER allow the thought of taking your life be the solution to this. It's not worth it. It is something that CAN be fixed-it just may take a bit of time, but it can be done. But taking you life is final and cant be fixed once its done. Don't allow yourself to get to that point. If you need someone just to vent to, or talk to you can private message me anytime. I know I don't know you, and you don't know me- but that doesn't matter. Sometimes just talking to someone helps so much. I am happy to help if I can :) Good luck with everything and I hope you get things taken care of so you can be happy with your body and happy to be alive. God Bless!

I don't think anything is worth taking your life. Things will get better. I'm not completely happy with my results so I'm saving money again and going a 2nd time. Honestly if I were you I wouldn't want the original Dr to fix it. He may make it worse. I would find a reputable board certified surgeon to do your revision. I hope things get better for you. I will send prayers your way. Goodluck!

Going to a better doc for a revision

I think I'm going to go to a doctor who actually knows what he is doing in California. I wish I would have gotten it done right the first time. Lesson learned. The cost is $12,000 plus I already wasted thousands for Dr Nguyen to turn me into a cartoon character. I'm ready to get this fixed and move on with my life. The moral of the story is don't go to a doc that doesn't have tons of before and after pics of the surgery you want. I'm the only before and after pic he has and my results look obviously fake. I found a different doc this time who has plenty before and after pics showing he really is capable of achieving a natural looking sexy perky butt. I do not recommend Dr Nguyen because he wasted my time and money.


Can you tell me please size and shape or youre implants?

I can say you either should have had a butt lift, or implants under the muscle why why choose not to. Have you seen the video where the lady can flip the implants with her hand?

Yes and I brought it up with Dr Nguyen and he said here was under the skin and mine would be under the fascia and it would be enough to hold it up, which was a lie but I trusted him.
