When I first decided to undergo a breast augmentation, I decided that I had to do my homework to get the right doctor, the right implant (type, size, shape, texture, etc), and right placement for me. I did A LOT of research before I started to form an opinion on what I thought I wanted to go with. I found the perfect implant option in anatomical cohesive silicone gel ("gummy bear") implants-...

42 Year-old Active Mom with Prior Breast Augmentation and Persistent Pain and Implant Movement - Gainesville, FL
I am an active mom, enjoy working out (running and light weights), bike riding with my kids, crafts, dancing and looking my best. I had a silicone breast implant procedure done back in June 2012 where the surgeon talked me into going "under the muscle" due to my activity level. From day one I had discomfort on my sides (laterally). The implants began to move more and eventually would slip...

The moment I was diagnosed with collapsed breast implants, I started searching high and low fo the best of plastic surgeons.

I am a 24 year old nurse and decided to get a breast augmentation last year with Dr. Richard Sadove in Gainesville, FL. I can honestly say it has been the best decision and investment of my life so far!

Saw a friend after her surgery, wanted to look younger too. l was so happy after having the surgery. Did not look fake, just refreshed and younger. My doctor did a marvelous job. Very compassionate and extremely cautious and concerned for the safety of my procedure. Great follow-up afterwards. Was very little discomdort or bruising after surgery.
2 out of 5 stars Acne Scars Treatment
He didn't give much information about the actual procedure. The dos & don't pre and post surgery- I had to initiate asking. Nor was he very informative about the cons of the surgery. All of my concerns he basically negated with a one to 2 sentence quick rebuttal, not belaying my fears at all. I ultimately went forward with the procedure as I thought it was my only option. I was unhappy with...

My style, skills There is no greater profession than to be a Plastic Surgeon. I am so blessed to have had the parents and teachers who made me who I am. First, we are human beings, next we are physicians, and then we are plastic surgery specialists.
My style is to listen to what you want.
