I have had bad experiences with popular plastic surgeons on Long Island. One VERY popular PS charged me 16k for two breast augmentations which both resulted in triangle shaped ugly breasts. Another VERY popular PS on Long Island did an okay job, and charged me 21k for another breast augmentation and lipo. Again, I was left waiting for the body I had paid for...
My 2010 surgery with popular PS #2 resulted in an okay result. He made my nipples smaller and although my breast shape was round and nice, my nipples were very LOW, scarred, large, and uneven. I hoped it wouldn't stay that way but.. it did. The lipo on my stomach was uneven too and I had a little bump left on my stomach. It wasn't what I expected, at all.
Motivated by that surgery, I started working out doing Crossfix 5x a week. I was in the best shape of my life.. 5'7 and 130 lbs....but still didn't have a washboard stomach!
Well.. after that I was pregnant and the pregnancy weight gain was nearly 100 lbs! I was left with sagging breasts that went from a 34D to a 38DD, nipples even more south, my tummy was saggy and that leftover lump from the lipo was still there.
FINALLY! I decided to try a surgeon off the beaten path. This summer I met Dr. K at one of his open house events. A friend told me about him so I figured I would meet. Although he is a little quirky, I liked that he had answers for me and was very confident about giving me the body I wanted this whole time! I liked that he wasn't a sales man like the other PS's on LI.
My mommy makeover cost me 1/3 the price I had been quoted at popular doctors in Garden City and Stonybrook. Although I wasn't looking for a deal, I was looking for a good surgeon who understood my needs and the price was just a bonus.
In July, I had a full mommy makeover with a tummy tuck, liposuction, and my breast reduction. I went from a 38DD to a full C and my nipples were made small, finally!
I look AMAZING and I am so happy with Dr. K and his staff Sandra and Kelly are so sweet. I never had to wait for an appointment. I never felt like I couldn't ask a million questions and Dr. K showed me I can have the body I wanted after all!
I can't recommend him enough. That's the problem with plastic surgery. It's easy to find the business men but it's hard to find the hidden gems!
After the surgery at Huntington Hospital, I went right home that night and felt quite well. Dr. K sent me flowers the next day and called me... the little things, you know?
Thank you thank you! I will post photos soon.
