5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Removal

Implants making me sick. Many symptoms gone first day after explant, no lift or new implants! Dr. Feng is the best.

Dr. Feng uses ultrasound mapping performed by a radiologist, Dr. Kahn, at the Cleveland Clinic to locate and remove silicone granulomas and sends everything off to pathology. No one else even mentioned doing this. She has done 7,000-8,000 explants without re-implanting! She has her own, state of the art, surgery suite that only she operates in, with her personal anesthesiologist and highly qualified O.R. staff. She has a 0% infection rate. I feel like she is the most skilled at en bloc bilateral capsulectomy through the inframammary fold (best access to remove capsule intact) , excision of all granulomas clearly mapped out on your skin by Dr. Kahn during ultrasound, proper drains and holistic pain management. All without any lift. She is my best chance for renewed health and most experienced at explantation without exchange or lift. She continues to do ongoing research and is invested in your health and wellbeing, maintaining care for one year post op. She has testified before the FDA presenting data that should raise concern about breast implants. She continues to speak out about the truth. Now, 4 days post op, I can tell you that she is everything you could ask for. Read my full review under my profile for all of the details. Definitely the best in the industry for explantation. She takes it seriously, covers all bases, but is balanced and individualizes treatment to the patient, is not overkill taking more tissue than necessary or recklessly removing lymph nodes unless merited. Her price is even reasonable as she has her own top notch facility. When I priced a local doctor (with almost no experience with this), it was almost the same amount by the time you pay for extended Operating Room time, which has to be done at the hospital (can't be done at the surgery center, requires general anesthesia to do a total capsulectomy and is more invasive with more risks) pay extended time for anesthesia and the doctor's time, it came out to about the same amount. Research her website, print and read her own studies published in peer reviewed journals. She knows more about this procedure than Dr. Melmed or Dr. Kolb put together, in my opinion. She is worth the trip to Cleveland. She does a complete nutritional and whole body preparation, as well as follow up, for best possible outcome and support for your body to restore and heal quickly. I feel amazing after four days. Message me with any questions. I am happy to answer. For such a difficult decision, it is a relief to share that Dr. Feng and her staff make it the best it can be. I'm happy that I did it and I'm grateful that I chose Dr. Feng. I never had a negative feeling or hesitation once I met her and her staff. I felt nothing but excitement, feeling secure in her care and whatever the outcome. She really cares about the issues with breast implants and more importantly, about you.

Explanted after nearly 3 yrs and SO GLAD!!

Dr. Lu-Jean Feng is by far the best option for explanting!! She and her staff went above and beyond to make sure my experience was as comfortable and relaxing as possible. I really felt that they cared about my emotional and physical wellbeing and it was the best surgical experience I could ever have asked for. They pampered me as if I were in a spa! Thank you to Dr Feng and all of the wonderful nurses and the anesthesiologist that helped me through this time in my life!

56 with 25 Year Old Implants ~ Want Them Out!! LONG STORY - California, CA

I am so grateful to Dr. Lu-Jean Feng and her staff for the way they took care of me each step of the way. I had done my research on Dr. Feng and felt she was the best choice for me. I travelled from California to Ohio to have this procedure done, meeting Dr. Feng the afternoon before my surgery. As soon as I met with her, I knew I was in the right hands. She was kind, caring, compassionate, knowledgeable, thorough and holistic. She spent so much time with me, not rushed at all, getting to know my health background and lifestyle, describing the upcoming surgery and recovery, etc. I also appreciate that she works with Dr. Leonard Kahn at the Cleveland Clinic and had him complete a thorough ultrasound workup on me prior to meeting with her. I felt she took every step possible to thoroughly understood me and my body as a whole, instead of just going in and removing the implants and sending me on my way. Another draw to Dr. Feng's practice was that she has her own surgical suite and dedicated surgical staff. The anesthesiologists she employs are doctors and not nurse anesthesiologists. They report a 0% infection rate, which was another important factor in my decision. Additionally, she uses a 72-hour nerve block and a method of anesthesia, developed by her office, which is very easy to come out of. I awoke without nausea or grogginess, which had not been my prior experience. Additionally, Dr. Feng's pre- and post- surgery protocols were very specific and I followed them exactly as she described. She laid out a time line prior to surgery of what medications, supplements, and foods to avoid and provided pre- and post surgery support vitamins and supplements. Coming out of surgery, she sent me home with her huge signature salad consisting of a large variety of fresh veggies, fruits, and nuts, which was delicious and full of nutrients. In addition, she also included a large container of a wonderful vegetable soup. These foods were perfect for post surgery. I had a very rapid recovery, which I feel is in part because of all the pre- and post- guidelines that I followed. My surgery was on a Wednesday, drains were removed Friday and I flew home on Sunday. Things didn't end there, however. Dr. Feng's nurse, Megan, called me the following Monday to ensure I got home OK and answered the questions I had about post surgical care. I would have no hesitation to call if I had any questions, but the thoroughness and experience of this office already ensured that most of my possible questions have already been addressed, either verbally or in the paperwork that I was sent home with. Dr. Feng herself sent me my pre, intra and post surgery photos and responded quickly and thoroughly to a question I had posed in my response to her. One last thing that Dr. Feng's office does that sets her aside from the others is that she sends every thing that is removed from you during surgery off to biopsy. In my case, that was the implants, the scar tissue from the en bloc removal, and the scar line skin from under my breast fold as she went in through the same entry point. Making the decision to fly to Ohio for this procedure was worth every penny to me ~ you can't put a price on feeling secure and confident going into surgery that you have done everything you can to have ensured the best possible outcome. To paraphrase what my friend said when I described my experience with the Feng Clinic in it's entirety to her: "As strange as it seems when talking about something so invasive and serious, the whole thing almost sounds like a delightful experience." "Dr. Feng's clinic should be commended for turning something that could be so frightening and emotionally charged into a transformation where a brighter future is the main focus." Many grateful thanks from me to Dr. Feng and her team!

5 out of 5 stars Male Tummy Tuck

62 Y.o. Male with Ventral Hernia and Large Separation in Stomach Muscle - Cleveland, OH

Dr. Lu-Jean Feng spent over an hour with me during my consultation appointment. She reviewed every aspect of my health including nutrition, physical fitness, sleep habits, medications, bowel habits, etc... She was extremely thorough and genuinely interested in me as a person. I felt like I was in very competent hands. She took photographs of my protruding hernia and abdomen and suggested a full tummy tuck. She assured me I would have minimal pain and downtime and that she could provide me with a "six pack ab" look. She quoted me a price and told me it included all follow up visits no matter how many times I came back. She provided a very detailed food and medication list as well as surgery vitamins. I really felt like I had nothing to lose and a lot to gain. Her staff was also very impressive from the front desk staff who greeted me to the Director of Operations who scheduled my surgery, to the nursing staff who competently performed my pre-admission testing at a subsequent appointment. On my third visit, the day of surgery, I was comforted by the surgical nurses and the anesthesiologist. After surgery I received numerous phone calls at home from the clinic nurse, Megan. This was a 5-star experience from start to finish and I would highly recommend Dr. Feng and her entire staff to anyone considering any type of elective procedure.

WORTH IT! 37 Year Old En Bloc Removal of 6-year-old Silicone Gummy Sub Muscular Implants - Columbus, OH

Dr. Feng is amazing and her facility is state-of-art. Despite this fact--and her very impressive credentials (including Yale at the age of 16), she is extremely personable. She consulted with me for around 2 hours (give or take-- I lost track of time) in her very beautiful office. I was nervous about having surgery outside of of a hospital setting, but Dr. Feng explained having her own surgical center allows for greater regulation in controlling infection; she pointed out no ill patients come and go such as in a hospital setting. The Lu-Jean Feng clinic has a 0% infection rate. If going under is a concern, be comforted by the knowledge all of Dr. Feng's anesthesiologists are MD's. Dr. Malic attended during my surgery. He has great bedside manner; he had me imagine myself on a beautiful beach of my choice... right before going under. I was too nervous to think of one, but one of the RN's (Karla) blurted out "Hawaii." I went under imagining a beautiful horizon. Speaking of RN's, both Karla and Lindsey were simply fantastic. In fact, the entire staff was wonderful. After coming to, I was surprisingly alert; I was given Arnica pills. Although I was a bit out of it, I did not have the drowsy feeling that typically accommodates post-operative consciousness. After a couple of hours in recovery, I was sent home with a gigantic, delicious salad and tasty large cup of soup. A packet is sent to your home a couple of weeks before surgery. The packet includes information and vitamins that you begin taking immediately. There is also a list of foods, vitamins, and supplements to avoid. After surgery, you continue taking the vitamins you were sent, so it's paramount to bring them with you. I took no pain meds. The drains inside the breasts made the first night PAINFUL. You definitely need someone to help with the drains (a nurse will show you and your attendant how it is done). Silly me for not listening to the nurses, who told me to get large zip-loc bags and fill them with ice and place them on my breasts. The second night I wised up and kept ice on my chest. What a difference! I slept like a baby. On day 2 I had my drains removed. Once the drains were removed I was essentially pain-free with only a mild slight soreness felt when lifting my elbows away from body (which I wasn't supposed to be doing anyway.) If good health is your goal, Dr. Feng is the doctor for you. She removes implants en bloc, then sends your scar tissue out to pathology. She maintains an extremely positive and beautiful environment, and a holistic outlook on health. The fact she no longer does breast implants is proof of her passion for healthy living. Before I left, considering my forced full-hysterectomy last year, she gave me a book on healthy aging to educate myself on bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. I cannot stop singing her praises enough. If you are worried about deformity of breasts post-explantation, note that Dr. Feng repairs the muscle while she's in there and, if you desire more fullness but are hesitant of breast lift scars (I am), she offers stem cell replacement enhancement. One last observation: every employee was thrilled to be part of Dr. Feng's team. I am sure she inspires them to be their very best everyday. That's the type of vibe she has. I am so grateful to have found her (thanks, Real Self :)) and to have those toxic bags out of me! The chronic pain in the mid right portion of my abdomen and my upper right chest area disappeared after surgery. I feel SO much better already. I am team Feng, all the way.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

44 Yr. Old Implant Removal, Mastopexy/Lift and Tummy Tuck. Pepper Pike, OH

Dr. Feng is extremely professional and she truly cares about her patients. Her calm bedside manner placed me at ease from the moment I met her. Her beautiful surgical center is private, peaceful, and is state of the art. She spent a great deal of time with me as I had many questions, and wanted to view before/after photos. It helped me make my decision to remove my 20 yr. old implants along with my tummy repair. I feel amazing. My back pain is gone from my implants and I finally feel good in clothing again. I was hiding in baggy clothes for so long. I'm so thankful for Dr. Feng.

46 Years Old, 3 Kids, and Ready to Be FREE and SMALL! - Pepperpike, OH

Dr. Feng takes the time to really understand what you want to achieve with your surgery. She was such a fascinating woman in every aspect. She really cares about the patient and has your health as her number one objective. I feel so confident in my choice for a surgeon! I can't say enough about her friendly staff. They all were welcoming with smiles and actually called my husband and I by name. I felt very special and hope other ladies will consider her when looking for a plastic surgeon.
