I am 30 years old, 5'7", 113 lbs. I had a breast augmentation done by Dr. Orna Fisher February 2014. After having 3 kids, my breasts looked like emptied out sacks. I was a big 32 B before surgery and had 380 cc implants (subpectoral), so ended up at 32DD. I was told by Dr. Fisher that I did not need a breast lift. I proceeded with the surgery, and came out of it in such massive pain on my right breast, shoulder and bicep. Although Dr. Fisher was friendly about my complaint of pain over the next few weeks, she kept blaming my anatomy on the problem.

By May my implants had mostly dropped. The left one was clearly dis-figured. My right side still had the intense pain, and there was numbness all down my bicep. She had damaged a nerve. I went in to see Dr. Fisher about the dis-figuration and again the pain. I was told I should in-fact have had a lift and that she mis-measured me. Also, that my left breast needed a revision surgery. She could not tell me the reason why. She gave me some excuses that had to do with the implant perhaps slipping or possibly could have been the implant folding in on itself. I felt very uncomfortable with having this surgeon cut into me again when she didn't have a game-plan. She had no idea (or not one that she was willing to admit) as to why I needed a revision and what she was going to do.

I had a 2nd opinion by another surgeon in town who I know to be one of the best and who is a board-certified plastic surgeon. (That there was my number 1 mistake with the first go-around!!) The surgeon took his time measuring and taking pictures at my first appointment. He told me the reason for my dis-figured breast was because Dr. Fisher cut the pocket out wrong. He was very nice about saying this, but it was the problem, nonetheless. After several visits to this surgeon, I had a revision by him. He confirmed after doing my surgery that the pocket was in fact cut out incorrectly and also a band (I assume that meant a band of muscle) had not been cut, so it caused it further deformation.

I am currently 6 months out from my initial surgery, and still have a lot of pain and numbness on my right side. If I had ever dreamt of the pain, I would never have done this surgery. I also am still not happy with the results cosmetically. I now have big saggy breasts instead of small saggy breasts.

(I do not have pre-op pictures posted, as I still cannot get the doctor to give them to me)
