2 out of 5 stars Mentor Breast Implants
I have poland's syndrome, faught like hell for insurance's help to pay. Overall, I feel like a guinea pig and used for medical scamming. She accidentally repeated the mistake in the revision of a revision: I am currenly two months post op and breast is the same as prior her correction. I understand its a hard defect to correct, but damn, surgery is extremely stressful and communicate with me if its above your skill level comfort zone. I have no idea of what's next. I saw another surgeon from same facility who offered to fix denting under local anesthesia for $200.00. What does that mean? I am so scared for my breast and officially scared of surgeons. I hate harboring these feelings of disappointment in my doctor and possesing low self-esteem from this whole experience most of all.

Dr Heinrich is actually out of St Paul MN. Her and her staff are all beyond what words can describe. She is professional, kind, explains things well. Her staff have all been super nice and helpful. They make you feel welcome and at ease. Being a larger gal still, I was worried about being judged still about the weight but I saw no signs of that from anybody! My post op appointment the PA and Nurse were just all out there and fun to deal with and just made me laugh. Even my boyfriend has said over and over how impressed he is with Dr Heinrich and all her studenst/PA's she had with her in the hospital. When things got very scarey in the hospital the day after surgery they seemed on top of it and did everything they could to get me out of danger. Again, my boyfriend was impressed with how well they handled it. They have given me a new and better chance at a longer and better quality of life. I have not had to deal with billing so I didn't rank. NEW ADDITION... Since last seeing my abdominal specialist on the 12th of February ( now the 21st) I have not heard back from Heirichs office for a follow up. I have called the appointment desk and made a follow up appt for early April. Hopefully it was a simple mistake by the person taking the message that I was not called back for a follow up.
