5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
Loved dr.rigano. Did a great job. He was so welcoming, kind, and caring. Wouldn't go to any other surgeon. He told me step by step what was going to happen. I was able to call when I had questions. Very happy with the outcome. It's been over 1 year now and I am still satisfied with the results. I recommend him for anyone.
5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants
I just had my initial consultation for breast augmentation with Dr. Rigano in Yellow Springs, Ohio. He may be the nicest person I have ever met! His demeanor makes you feel completely comfortable and since he's been doing this for over 25 years he ends of answering questions you didn't even think to ask! He works with you ton determine what size and type of implant works best with your frame...
5 out of 5 stars Mentor Breast Implants
I have enjoyed reading everybody's story for months. It is helped me tremendously. I never planned on sharing my story but I had such an awesome experience I just had to share!! I have wanted this done for as long as I can remember. I have to kids. I breast-fed my daughter which left my breast very deformed looking. My right breast was a 34aa and my left was a 34a. I actually was...
5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover
I am in pretty good shape.. I walk more than 13 miles 6days a week and work out about 3-4 times a week and could never get rid of that big mommy pouch :( ! I had dreamed for many years of having something done but never took it to serious until recently... I wanted my self esteem back! One of my friends had a BA done and they looked amazing so I got some info from her and upon meeting Dr...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
Hi everyone. I'm scheduled for BA/TT 29 Mar. My second preop is 19 Mar. My PS is recommending subglandular but after reading reviews I'm torn. I'm active duty military and just finished a 1yr deployment in Afghanistan where I lost 30lbs. I'm excited. Has anyone went the subglandular route? If so I'd love to hear your thoughts... Preop went great. Decided on 300cc below muscle. Nervous but...
5 out of 5 stars Chin Liposuction
I was having abdominoplasty to get rid of an apron of skin that had a large horizontal scar under it, the result of a lot of surgeries on my ovaries and bladder years ago. So, as I was having a TT anyhow, I decided to also tighten up my jaw line which was starting to get some pockets of fat on each side. The surgeon just went in the tiny scar from the first time I had chin liposuction, in...
I was referred to Dr. Rigano by my bariatric surgeon. I had a history of rashes, yeast infections, and torn skin resulting from a 150 lb. weight loss following RNY gastric bypass surgery. I also have 3 acquaintances who have been treated by Dr. Rigano for various plastic surgeries. Dr. Rigano is extremely personable and makes you feel comfortable immediately. He is very direct regarding what...
I really didn't think my situation was bad enough that insurance would approve it. I wear a 34J I am 5"1" and now weigh 155. When I first started looking into it I weighed 172. Believe or not when the PS told me that he thought that Anthem BCBS of Ohio would approve me if gave me the motivation to lose weight because I thought finally I could lose weight and not look top heavy if I could...
4 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover
35, 5'2, 115lbs, 3 nursed/c-sectioned babies later.... I've known I would have this done for 11 years, when I was done having children. 32/34D and 100 lbs before kids. Blew up to EE/FF during pregnancy and now a VERY empty 32/34B, stretch marks, wrinkly skin, with a pooch I can't get rid of. Had several consults, finally settled on Dr. Rigano. He spent 2 hours with me the first visit and...
1 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction
My perspective is very similar to other ladies here, but also a little different because of my age. Like many I have wanted a reduction for years. Back in the day insurance was more restrictive, far more policies had exclusions than now and so I never even bothering talking to a PS about it. Seven or so years ago I called and was told that I was too overweight for insurance approval. Last...
