SO I had alwayssss admired a bustier figure and saved for 6 months to get my BA done. I was 20 years old and this is before I had any education on how to pick a doctor or realized you get what you pay for. I heard Dr. Greenbergs ads on the radio and thought "oh wow he can afford advertising so he much be great" LOL at my former self. I was so freakin excited I should have paid more attention to all the red flags. I wanted bigger breasts over the muscle and inserted through the armpit. He said no. He said he only does under the muscle with and an incision under the breast. A doctor should be able to offer his patients more then 1 option. He only does one type of BA?? RED FLAG. We agreed on 500cc implants and I wanted this day I still want 700. I wish I was more assertive. I really knew what I wanted.
So the day of surgery I get there and everything runs smoothly until I wake up SCREAMING in pain. and the nurses go "Oh phew! We couldn't wake you up!" IM LIKE WHAT?! Apparently they gave me so much narcotic they couldn't wake me up and to top things off I couldn't urinate afterwards. I had a catheter in me for 2 WEEKS. I had to see a urologist and get put on prostate medicine to begin to uriniate on my own again. I was humiliated and in so much pain. I recovered from my surgery with ZERO pain meds because they were afraid of how I would react after they overdosed me on narcotics. It was truly a traumatic experience.

So here we are years later. My boobs are OK. They are saline and ripple when I bend over, they slide around in the pockets which are now too enlarged and look strange underneath my muscle. In clothes they look great but naked they only look good if Im standing up. Now that I live in Southern California and have access to the best suregons in the country Ive already picked out my new doctor for my BA revision and Im feel great about that. Beware of Dr. Greenberg, he took my money and shoved some plastic in me and that was basically it. I wouldn't send my worst enemy to him...well maybe I would lol. My revision surgery will include gummy implants, an internal bra and wrapping the implants in pig skin to keep them in place. And thats going to be more then double the cost of my first procedure, but this is what I mean by you get what you pay for!

but hey I dont regret getting my boobs done, I regret the doctor I chose!
Woodbury Plastic Surgeon

Business man with an interest in plastic surgery. I wouldn't go back to him if he wanted to work on me for free. I felt like a second class citizen when I was in his office. I don't even think he came into the recovery room. Ugh years later I still cringe to think I was dumb enough to let him work on me. I wish I would have sued for all the trauma that happened with the anesthesia.
