I was very disappointed with what the previous surgeon had done.

I have been asked to give a little more detail about the process. I went to Dr. Kessler after having gone to two different surgeons for breast augmentation. The first time (in 1998), I was given saline, overfilled. Within a year I went to see that doctor because the implants were so hard an looked so unnatural. He looked at me and the implants and said everything was "fine." He said there was no capsular contraction, they were just hard because they were overfilled, so everything was "ok." I just gave in, and suffered with them for many years.

In 2005 I went to a doctor in Santa Monica (Teitelbaum) and told him about my disappointment with the first implants. He said there was probably capsular contraction, and planned to put in silicone implants. He charged me for the new implants, AND for removing capsular contraction. Well, he performed the surgery and then told me there was NO capsular contraction, that the implants were just so hard because they were overfilled. BUT, he never refunded the extra money he had charged for the capsular contraction. Dr. Teitelbaum left me with very, very uneven implants, and the right implant was hard, not nearly as soft as the left one was. But there was no capsular contraction.

Finally, this past year I went to see Dr. Kessler, to see if he could give me a result that was adequate. I had chosen to see Dr, Kessler about it because I had gotten to know him over the previous two years. I had been going to him for botox, and I found him to be very focused and kind.

We met several times before the surgery, and each time he focused on details that were important to both of us.

The recovery went super well. I did not have pain anywhere in the breasts. They look terrific, and for the first time in my adult life I have cleavage and breasts that look natural!!!

Dr. Kessler had a challenge in correcting the problems with my previous augmentation. But not only did he successfully correct the other doctor's errors, he had tremendously creative ideas on how to give me cleavage that I had never before had. Dr. Kessler is not only approachable and caring, he immerses himself in the creative process of it. He clearly loves, and thrives on, what he does.
