5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Very Happy! Centerville, OH

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.

43 Y/o with 4 Kids Never Breastfed - Yellow Springs, OH

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...

Girls are here...

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...

62 Years Old, Had This Back in 1990, but Jaw-line Was Getting "Jowl-y".... - Centerville, OH

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...

50 Year Old Female, Panniculectomy Following Massive Weightloss. Dayton, OH

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...

50 Years Old and Have Wanted This for So Long, Finally Got the Courage - Dayton, OH

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...

Sexy and I Know It...somewhere in Here! - Dayton, OH

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...

58 Yrs Old, 5’4”, 215 Lbs, 42H/I, Surgery 16 Jan 2015 - Kettering, Ohio

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...
