Dr. Weisberg is a masterful surgeon whose work is more akin to artistry. His staff is so warm, caring and kind you easily forget you are in a surgical practice. I am SO HAPPY I chose them for my needs and highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for the best! They were highly recommended to me by a number of people I know and I am so happy I took their advice

Staff was pleasant and nice. Doctor was knowledgeable but did the procedure different than expected and now I cannot get it fixed. Very sad upon waking up. I am not thrilled with the $14k results because of it and it was not worth the cost. A follow up was not scheduled at 6 months, no post ops were taken and the explanation was it was 'progressive'. I do see results but they could've been better. Dr Verne did give me a cell # I could reach him at and did call the first night. However I did develop an issue the following week and of course he was on vacation. Not his fault and it was worked out - I was sent to an on call doc in a different town. But it was not nearly as nice of a facility. Bad timing on both of our parts :) The initial intake that was done was very unprofessional an there happened to be a 'trainee'. Every other employee was highly professional and appeared organized. This woman looked like she could flip burgers for a living. Sorry. After the most embarrassing moments (photos)..then the camera breaks..then you come back for your pre op and they have to do photos again!? I'm scheduling an appt to see what we can do about this and I do trust his skill as a surgeon. I will update as we go from here.

Walking into the facility was not like a normal doctors office. They offered coffee, water and a relaxing setting. When greated they where very nice and made you feel like you are the queen. Dr. Weisberg was a little intimidating at first but he does ask you questions about you. He tries to make you feel comfortable, but he still seems to have that serious feel when you talk to him. I hope this is good thing and that he really does care for his patient. This will be my first surgery so I am super nervous.

When I originally had the BA with a surgeon in Massachusetts it was the most exstreemly painful experience of my life. Although I was an A cup and asked to be a B cup I ended up with a D cup. No wonder I was in so much pain! Because the original BA was so incredibly painful I always dreamed of explant but never seriously contemplated it because I no longer trusted plastic surgeons. Then I found Dr. Verne Weisberg of Portland Maine on Realself. The office/waiting room is more like a spa environment with the surgery facility consisting of the upmost state of the art medical equipment. Right from day one at the consultation he has been compassionate, kind, and understanding of my needs and concerns. He is by far the most talented PS and has changed my life immensely for the better. At the consultation with Dr. Weisberg I expressed my concerns and anxiety over the pain involved with explanting. Although I trusted Dr. Weisberg and his staff and they assured me I would leave with no pain, I still had a lot of anxiety due to the bad experience with the previous surgeon in Massachusetts who wrongfully put way too big implants in me (which was the cause of the extreme pain). For that reason Dr. Weisberg gave me 3 scripts, 1 for anxiety, and 2 for pain. Other than taking 2 of each the morning of surgery (as prescribed) and because I've been icing them every 20 minutes (also prescribed and thanks to mom for administering it!), I haven't had to use much of the prescribed pain medicine. Not only was the surgery practically painless (during and after) as promised by Dr. Weisberg, he and his staff were incredibly compassionate and made the entire experience stress free. Dr. Weisberg began the surgery by guiding me through a calming meditation. He was also very gentle and kind during the surgery. A couple of times when I felt pain he immediately injected more local and reminded me to think of a happy time in my life. Now you may think WOW that's over and above what any other surgeon would do for his patient but there's more. After Dr. Weisberg stitched me up and told me the surgery was complete I was so overwhelmed with relief that my worst fears of excruciating pain never came to fruition that I began to cry. He then, while I lied there on the operating table, walked around to the back of my head and began gently rubbing my temples while speaking softly telling me everything was going to be ok. He also gave me a head massage! What am amazing man/surgeon!!!! I went home feeling loved, cared for, and in no pain! That evening Dr. Weisberg called me to see how I was doing. Again, another example of the extra step he takes to make sure his patients are happy and healthy. I slept through the night that evening without any medication painfree and I feel amazing today! I also received a phone call from Dr. Weisberg's nurse today asking how I was doing. Again, another example of the loving care he and his staff provide. I want to take this opportunity to thank the most loving, caring and talented surgeon, Dr. Verne Weisberg and his amazing staff! I anticipate that my health and energy will continue to improve in the days and months to come. And thanks to Dr. Weisberg I have a new lease on life! I went into Dr. Weisberg's office scared, untrusting, and a nerortic mess and left calm, happy, looking forward to my new life, and with a complementary 30 day supply of Dr. Weisberg's vitamins. I would highly recommend Dr. Weisberg to all my friends and family with all the confidence in the world!

Hey lovely ladies. I am scheduled to have surgery on July 22nd in Portland Maine with Dr. Weisberg.

Right now i'm a 36/A and I would like to be a full C....
