5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants

Don't Even Bother with Saline--silicone Implants Are Unbelievable--absolutely No Regrets.

First of all, let me clarify--the amount I spent ($10,000) was for TWO sets of implants and two surgeries. $5,000 each. The reason I put the $10,000 was to point out the problem with going with too small an implant the first time and also getting saline the first time. I had 280ccs saline over the muscle the first time--I was a saggy, deflated B before and ended up a full 36C/sometimes D....

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

20 Years Post Breast Augmentation

Dr. Friedman performed breast augmentation surgery on me 20 years ago. I have not had any complications or need for revision. Prior to surgery I did not have any breasts to speak of and after breast feeding 3 children, what little I did have was embarrassing. I was very self conscious and after surgery I had a much better self image and am very thankful for Dr. Friedman and his expertise,...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Confident and Calming - Bethesda, MD

When I first met with Dr.Friedman I wasn't sure about wanting the procedure. However, he was so confident (without being cocky) and calm that he made me feel like it would be easy. He reminded me, without flat out saying it, that this is his job and he knows how to do it and do it well. I'm more than happy with the results. The recovery time was minimal and was only truly painful for a few...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Experience with Dr. Roger Friedman-Plastic Surgery Institute of Washington -

Dr. Friedman was the last plastic surgeon I interviewed for a breast reduction and lift. When I walked into his office I immediately felt comfortable. His staff was friendly, courteous and helpful. Dr. Friedman sat with my husband and I and answered all of our questions. He was best at explaining the procedure and recovery time and I left feeling very comfortable and confident about the...
