Breast Reduction Gone Awry! - Denver, CO

Recently had a reduction that did not go well. I came from out of state because I was assured over and over they could get me from a 32DDD to a 32B or thereabouts and using the vertical scar method. I had the surgery and everything seemed to go well. A week after surgery I was cleaning the surgical bra and put on an old bra just for support and it fit fine. I had a meltdown. Even with swelling they weren't much smaller. So Dr. Huang graciously had me back in to remove more the deal was it was done without any anesthesia in the back office. I was awake for the whole thing. I started screaming part way (good thing my arms were strapped down) and I think that caused them to rush because now two months out I'm a D and one is definitely bigger than the other. I'm incredibly disappointed and have been told I have to wait many months before they'll consider doing anything and even then she suggested doing it in the back room again. I wanted to vomit - feeling my skin separate the first time was enough. My husband and I had to use all of our savings to afford this surgery and I it was only to get halfway to the assured end result. The only plus so far is the hospital was nice and the scars look okay - but overall if I would have known I don't think I would have done it. We'll see what they want to charge to correct it and if we can afford to travel halfway across the country again...

Personally, seems pleasant enough. Don't think she listened to what I asked for very well though - and haven't felt reassured that she'll be able to correct it.
