1 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Horrible experience

I'm very unhappy with the results of my breast reduction, I also wonder if I got a crap job because my insurance paid. I watched and did my homework before having my reduction months ago and did not get anywhere close to what I watched on those videos. I'm not sure how you screw up the areola size when they cut it out, they are horrible. I have pretty much 4 breast because I guess my insurance...

1 out of 5 stars Breast Lift

36yrs Went in for Breast Lift/reduction. but Came out with lots of Reduction no shape breast.- Saint Louis Park, MN

When i first met with him it all sounded good. He explained his yrs of experience and all the different surgery he has done. With all the years of experience i had no dout. He talked abt giving me a youthful breast.We talk about me getting a full D. Base on my body size. All my questions was answer , he talk abt rising the breast as a way to deal with the sagging.on the day of surgery after getting pre by the Rn. He came in and mark me up. This is seconds b4 surgery. At this time every thing felt rush. He was not the same person i talk to weeks ago. Try to show him my wish picture and what am looking for, but he just cut me off. At this time its seconds b4 surgery. The most i think he was in the room was 80-90 seconds. Less than 2min. As he is walking out he than made a comment abt the insurance payment and walk out. I did not had time to ask what he mean cus he's gone and they are taking me in the OR. All i heard was something abt him doing some much in order for the insurane to pay. And he walked off to srub. Next thing i know am in the recovery area. And i knew some was not right just by the look of the Rn. I looked at my chest and was looking for my breast. Its like he remove almost all my breast. I feel so deform. I came out with something different than what i was told or what i wanted. Today i look at my chest and am feeling like tomboy.since my surgery no one has call to check on me. I was only given pain meds. No wound pads was give to change the bloody ABD's. I had to by it myself. I will meet him next week. Hopefully we can do some form of correction. Cus with what i came out with i cant live with it. Am aready depress. Will add pictures soon

Thanks Turns out I had a hematoma and a...

Waited 15 Years for This and Couldn't Be Happier - Minneapolis, MN

I thought Dr Mr Lovaas was great. he was the only PS I consulted but his to the point, factual and overall experience made the decision a no brainer for me. he knew exactly what size to make my breasts in order to have them be proportionate to my body. He assured me over and over again, that I will have the body that I always wanted. I will no longer have a hidden waist, I will look great in a...

39 Years Old, 2 Kids - willmar surgery center, MN

Finally had my procedure last week, and so far loving the outcome!! Worst part of it all for me was the surgical bra I was sent home in was so uncomfortable, but I'm sure anything would have been uncomfortable;) my stitches are healing well and I had no drainage bags when I went home! Very little bleeding or drainage! First week I pretty much laid around and took my meds, I'm starting to...

Full TT W/MR, Lipo and Fat Grafting on Both Breasts - Minneapolis, MN

I went to 3 different PS consults and went with my 2nd choice and not my 1st choice for 2 reasons: 1st because my #1 choices price w/out lipo was $8500. 2nd: he would have had to charge me more $ for the fat grafting which was done for free by my PS because his partner is the PS who did my original reduction and my PS felt bad and corrected it for free. He also did the lipo because it contours the body better after the TT which sounded good to me. My PS that did my breast reduction was on leave and couldn't do my surgery until September which is why I saw her partner and decided to go with him. I read reviews for all the PS and Dr. Lovaas was at 3/5 to 4/5 stars on most sites all due to his bedside manner. I agree it could be better but I didn't and still don't think bedside manner is a huge deal if the PS knows what they are doing and explains things to you. His background speaks for itself and he has been doing plastic surgery for many years. He also has a fine art degree from Yale and uses that to "sculpt the body" which makes sense and impressed me. I like him because he is straight to the point and doesn't screw around. I'd recommend him to others that don't care about the bedside manner.
