Truly Disappointed on So Many Levels - Columbus, OH

At first I thought this guy and his nurse bobby ...

At first I thought this guy and his nurse bobby walked on water. But I have since changed my mind. My experience had so many levels of disappointment I just can't list them all right now. But I will give you one example and that is this: I asked for a breast lift and aug (to be fuller). I said I didn't want to be any bigger that a full C. They brought me ONE implant and insisted that was the size I needed to get the look I want. Bobby Assured me they would be between a full C and small D and where they would sit on my chest exactly how I wanted them. They also promised that my right breast would have some tissue removed in order to finally have symmetry. Well folks guess what size I am? Not only am I a size DDD, he didn't take out tissue from the right breast at all. So one is still bigger than the other and I have a horrible time trying to find bras. It protrudes from my bra all the time and it pushes
My shirts over to the left side. I look so FAT. Not saying I'm a thin person, I'm a thick girl but now the boobs make me look 50lbs heavier. He also assured me during recovery that I didn't need to bind my breast so they wouldn't move while they healed. And I trusted him. Only to end up with horrible scars all around my areoles caused from what I believe to be from just the sheer weight of these ginormous melons. I look like I need a breast reduction. When I said something to the nurse,bobby, about 1 still being bigger than the other she said " yeah but most women have one breast bigger than the other" really? That's your response ? And when I told dr.D. how unhappy I was and how I felt that I still needed a breast lift becuz they are so huge and look nothing like I asked for or was told they would look like. He said to me," I've never had any other complaints from my any of my other patients and most women use bras to lift their breasts". Really? He also said " well, compared to what you looked like before, I think u look pretty good". It broke my heart. And it's been almost 2 years since my surgery and I only have maybe 10% sensation in my nipples. At this point, I think it's safe to say the nerve damage is permanent. My nipples barely get erect. It's horrible. And I have to live with this everyday. I even went to get another dr.s opinion to see if my expectations were too high and he didn't even want to know the name of the surgeon That did this to me because he was so disgusted. After 2 years I still am upset and feel wronged. And dr.D won't take responsibility to fix them without me having to pay for the surgical center and anesthesia and new implants which were 800$ Each!. Keep in mind, the first hour of both a surgical center and anesthesia are much higher than the additional hours AND he was "done" with an hour to spare. Plenty of time to have done a more thorough job. He didn't even apologize. And like I said before that's just one of many disappointments I've experienced from my entire surgery and the outcome and just overall experience. I have 3 more years on the loan I took for this. Thinking how great this would be, I hardly have another 3000-5000$ to shell out so he can fix his mistakes and even if I did, how could I trust him again? Would you? So, If you need reconstruction on your breasts, ( and i consider a breast lift to be reconstruction) I would not recommend dr.D. (Or his nurse, bobby) I will eventually share all of my story but this is all I can stomach for tonight. And it pains me to share my experience and give him a bad review because I really liked and trusted the guy. I am truly saddened over it all. But if there had been any kind of negative review on dr.D before my surgery, I could have avoided all of this as I would have gone to a more experienced surgeon. And that is why I'm sharing.
