Breast Augmentation Gone Wrong - Munster, IN

My wife had a breast augmentation done by this Dr. The Dr. talked her into trying to resize her left areola during the procedure against her wishes. When the procedure had been completed and she returned for a follow up visit, Dr. F accidentally cut out the permanent stitch for the areola. Consequently her areola is now the same size as it was previously except now it looks like someone carved her up. The scarring is very noticeable and she does not like to look at her breasts in the light because of it. He knew he had made a mistake when he cut out the stitch because he instantly told her he did not need to see her again. My wife does not want to go back to him and deal with the physical pain associated with having her areola cut into again and she knows it will never look natural again. Dr. F could have been honest about what he did and should have made every effort to correct the problem.

40 Something Chicago Girl, Not Going Down Without a Fight! - Munster, IN

Dr. Frank has been my secret weapon for years! Well, not so secret since all of my friends and family go to him too. I'm so thrilled with my results, so why not share? I've used botox as a preventative measure for the past 5 years, and I can say people are shocked when I tell them my real age. Advice to women out there waiting for the right time, don't wait till the creases and frown lines form, go running to Dr. Frank. He can be your hidden little secret too, and NO you won't walk out looking like a dear in headlights! Thank You Dr. Frank you are truly the best!

For years, cohesive gel implants were the like the holy grail of implants. We'd talk about the wonders they could perform and pray for the day in the distant future when they'd finally receive FDA approval. From capsular contracture, to rippling, to deflation -we (plastic surgeons and a few devoted patients) waited for the day when all these problems would be things of the past and we would live in a world of cohesive gel bliss. So its been a year now, and the world quite honestly...
