5 out of 5 stars Sientra Breast Implants
I felt confident from beginning to end that Dr. Talbert and his nurses understood my wants and expectations and exceeded all of those. They listened, helped me make informed decisions over implant style, companies, and sizes.
5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction
I was diagnosed with breast cancer in July 2013, underwent unilateral mastectomies and four rounds of chemotherapy. I planned to have breast reconstruction surgery from the time of my diagnosis. My surgeon, Dr. James Hagens, recommended Dr. Gary Talbert for my breast reconstruction. In November of 2013, Dr. Talbert performed the first surgery to insert tissue expanders. I had weekly visits for...

I am so pleased with the results of my breast reduction. I went from a DDD to a C. I am thrilled about the immediate physical benefits (neck and shoulder spasms were gone the day after my surgery). I am also ecstatic about how they look! During my consultation, Dr. Talbert listened to my concerns and answered all of my questions.Throughout my procedure and recovery, Dr. Talbert and his nurses...

I did a lot of research first and was recommended by a friend who is 7 years happy. I was very unimpressed with the other surgeons I spoke with and Dr. Talbert's staff was so helpful and had a lot of faith in him. Dr.Talbert is board certified for about 20 years, very knowledgeable, confident, and has many years of training and experience. He is big on nutrition, natural-looking breasts, and has very very low re-operation and infection rates. His main plastics interest is in breast augmentation and does over 120 of them each year. He's been working with many of the same nurses and the same outpatient surgical center for about 10 years. He is also an artist, so he loves to work with his hands and sees your breasts as something for him to sculpt. He isn't the kind of person who will baby you or tell you what you want to hear, so if you need that he may not be for you. He was very honest with me, treated me like an adult, and made me feel comfortable with leaving my boobs in his hands! He let me know what would or would not work for me and told me that when he got in there he would select the size from our discussed range (275-325cc) that looked the best on me. He was completely confident that he could give me exactly the look and size I wanted, and he did! He also has the various implant sizes in storage so he doesn't have to order your size, which is very handy if you're indecisive and so that he can give you the size that really fits. The consultation and follow-up appointments are included in the cost, which is a big relief because the silicone implants are not cheap. His goal is to make this procedure as comfortable as he can, so plenty of pain and nausea meds are available to you. He uses the Keller Funnel for silicone implants for a smaller incision and lower infection rates. I never felt sick, hardly had any pain, and absolutely love my results so far. I would definitely recommend him in a heartbeat! (My only complaint is that my PS didn't talk to me right after surgery and no one from his office or the surgical center called to check on me. No complications, but seems like that should be standard.)

When I looked for reviews for Dr. Talbert, there were many for breast augmentation, but none for breast reduction. I wanted to make sure that those seeking a reduction have some information on Dr. Talbert. I had my reduction 3 weeks ago, and I could not be more pleased with the result already. At my consultation, I felt that Dr. Talbert was a little gruffer in manner than necessary, but this is probably a result of dealing with people who have very unrealistic expectations. By the end of the consult, he had softened a bit, addressed my concerns, and I felt confident in his hands. He estimated that he would remove 400 g from one breast and 800 from the other, and his estimate was dead on (final report was 372 from one and 724 from the other). I was in a 30J, and although it is too soon to determine my new size, i am currently fitting into about a D cup. Because I was used to seeing myself so big, this felt tiny at first, but now that I have lived with them a few weeks, I think they are perfect. He is a very skilled surgeon, and this is evident from my result so far. I have had very little bruising or pain. My incisions are healing beautifully. I have spent a lot of time on realself.com and compared to photos I have seen, my new breasts look just spectacular! They are very even and symmetrical. It looks like my scars will be minimal. Follow up appointments with Dr. Talbert have been great. He is very supportive, and both he and his nurse practitioner, Monica, are very reassuring and good at what they do. I would definitely do this surgery with Dr. Talbert again if I had the chance.

Dr. Talbert met with me at my first consultation then I saw him again at surgery and every check up app afterwards. He made sure I was fine after surgery and was pleased with my results. He really cares that his patients are happy and got what they wanted!

Based on your pre-operative photos, I would recommend a lift prior to an augmentation. I generally perform this as a 2 stage operation. READ MORE
