Had breast augmentation done on 05-01-15, and I am left searching for a doctor that can correct my surgery of removing my saline implants, performing a donut lift and possibly getting a mini tummy tuck as well. No longer in Arizona, but looking for a new surgeon in the Atlanta area to hopefully help me get get my confidence back.
I can only speak for myself, but my overall experience was not positive. My consultation had me excited, so I scheduled and payed for the surgery then and there. I received an email a couple of days later from Amber saying that they gave me the wrong price for the surgery and it would be an additional $1800 (for a nipple reduction aka donut lift) - I would not have scheduled or paid for anything had I known the real price, so I then decided to opt out of the donut lift and to just do a regular augmentation. Because the nipple reduction would have been only minimal. I received another email from Amber the day before the surgery asking for me to come in to talk to Dr Simmons, an hour and a half drive later I saw him for maybe 3 minutes and in that time he told me he would only place the implants over the muscle rather than under like I specifically asked for from the beginning, but I agreed because I felt pressured having already paid for the surgery. I was also told that my right breast was slightly smaller than my left so he would fill the saline to match the other, but once the swelling went down post op, my right breast is now much larger than the left. Between the -consultation, -pre-op, -day after post op and -one week post op, I was seen by Simmons for maybe a total of 10 minutes between ALL 4 appointments. The post op was by far the most disappointing part of it all though. I was greeted by a receptionist that spoke and looked us patients in condescending way, not to mention looking highly unprofessional with her lady bits popping out. I followed this receptionist to the exam room where Simmons already was and without shutting the door I was told to remove my top, and he handed me a mirror to look at them. I at this point assumed he would tell me things to watch out for or even what I should expect over the next few days, but nope I was told to try to get off the pain killers asap and that he would see me in another week. I suppose I had higher expectations, and thought there would have been a lot more information given to me VERBALLY about the procedure or what to expect, but this clearly did not happen. Please shop around for doctors and have several consultations, otherwise you may end up like me having 1 breast much larger than the other and searching for a surgeon to revise the augmentation only 11 months post op.
