I WOULD RECOMMEND HER BUT only if you are either very informed or have an extensive list of questions. Not very warm or talkative. She mostly, only answered questions asked. Doesn't volunteer much info. She never discussed the drains with me. I'd never even heard of them. So they were a complete surprise. Dissolving stitches. I'm VERY grateful to have them but she didn't tell me she was using them so I was unnecessarily scared of having them removed when I went to her office because of very painful experiences I'd read about. I had no idea she had a different stitching technique. Her's doesn't look like an anchor or upside down T. It looks likes a lollipop. I realized this in the mirror when I got home from the 1st post-op visit because the bandages were removed. We discussed & I wanted the "lollipop stitch" but I also expected to have a horizontal stitch underneath that sort of tighten everything up. I'm HAPPY to have less stitches/scarring but I'm curious about how it will end up looking because I have large folds underneath that she assured me will disappear over the next few months. I TRUST HER. I don't mind it very much but it would have been nice to be informed before hand. The folds were not actually addressed until my 2nd post-op visit. The office nearly forgot to tell me about getting blood work done. I ended up getting it the day before surgery which isn't ideal because I needed to adhere to smoking, drinking & pain meds restrictions up to a week before surgery. She & her staff are very professional & courteous. Her staff is warm & friendly. My surgeon refused to discuss size. Stating that large breasted women have a distorted view of size. But she assured me that she'd leave me proportioned especially since I'm overweight with a belly. I trusted her. I'm still swollen but I've tried on bras. I'm currently a C cup. She wasn't there when I woke up, I don't know if that's customary.
