Excellent Doctor - Rutherford, NJ

I found Dr. Samuel Rhee in Rutherford, NJ at the Malo Clinic, and he was THE BEST decision EVER! He took his time with me, answered all my questions, and I had quite a few prior to the surgery and my inquiries were always answered quickly. The day of the surgery, he & his staff were exemplar and again asked if I had any questions! I live in NY and interviewed NY surgeons who are Board Certified, as is Dr. Rhee, but, for the same procedure, the next lowest price was $4,000 more than what I was charged by Dr. Rhee. I know everyone's different after surgery, but, I never had to take pain medication, I only had very mild discomfort and the day after surgery, the office called to see how I was doing. I take off my gauze today, minus the Steri-Strips, so, I'll see how my breast skin looks minus the implants. I go back for follow-up on Sept. 4 to see if I'll need to have a breast-lift or fat transfer, I hope not, but maybe I'll have an idea of if I will need to after the bandages come off today.

Going to Remove My Chin Implant After 9 Years

I had a small, silicone chin implant with wings put in (inside the mouth) 9 years ago. I am scheduled for removal on Wednesday. I am a little nervous, but also a little excited. I never liked having a receding chin, but I also don't like the blocky appearance of an implant. Coupled with a nose that is a little large (just my opinion), it doesn't seem to minimize it - it just makes me look less...

Removing Implants After 12 Years - Rutherford, NJ

I have 450cc of silicone in each breast and after 12 years, I'm finally removing them, not to be replaced. I'm going back to an A/B from a full C cup. I've been wanting to do this for approx. 3 yrs., and now have a date of 8.22.13. My surgeon has warned me about the shock of the removal, so, I'm sort of ready, but, I guess I won't know until after the bandages, etc. have been removed. ...
