Dr. LaGrasso Ruined My Body - Florida, FL

If I keep this oath faithfully, may I enjoy my life and practice my art, respected by all humanity and in all times; but if I swerve from it or violate it, may the reverse be my life.
Above is a portion of the Hippocratic oath that every doctor takes once they become physicians... apparently Dr. LaGrasso doesn't feel that this applies to himself...

I was refered to Doctor Jeffrey LaGrasso from the Sleek MedSpa location in Boca Raton. After meeting with Dr. LaGrasso and hearing of his techniques and experiences in the field I decided to trust him to preform my first surgery in April of 2010. That surgery went well. I then decided to trust him and Sleek medspa with a much more invasive surgery... a breast lift and implant. Dr. LaGrasso assured my husband and myself that he was confident that he could achieve the results I wanted and that all would go well. We decided to move forward with my surgery. I went in for Surgery around November 2011. The surgery seemed to go well at first. On day three I was experiencing a lot of pain and puss around my bandages. I went to Hollywood and saw the doctor and he said I must be experiencing an allergy to the adhesive in the tape. I also noticed that my areolas were much differently shaped. Dr. LaGrasso assured me that all would be fine once I healed. After 3 months of waiting to heal I was not only left with 3/4 inch wide vertical scars on each breast, but I also still had very uneven egg shaped areolas and my right breast sat approximately 2.5 inches higher than my left. After going round and round with the staff and with Dr. LaGrasso, they decided to redo my surgery to correct the few issues that I had. I was however responsible for the fee of anesthesia again ($600) I went back in for a correction in May 2012. Dr. LaGrasso now added a secondary scar below each of my breasts (aprox. 4inches on under each). I was hopefully that all had been resolved this time... however I soon found out that it was not. As I sit here today my surgery is even more botched than before. I now have additional scars and I still have very uneven breasts. After a few moths I went back to Dr. LaGrasso and Sleek Medspa and sat with Jessica and my husband. I showed them my breasts and Dr. LaGrasso agreed that the surgery still wasn’t correct. He claimed I needed an additional. I asked him to refer me to another surgeon for a second opinion of what needed to be done to correct it. He refered me to Dr. Mark Pinsky, in Palm Beach Gardens, FL - Closer to my home. I went to Dr. Pinsky, paid the $50 office visit fee and showed him my horror. Needless to say he obviously told me I need yet another surgery to correct what Dr. LaGrasso attempted to do twice. Dr. Pinsky told me a lot about the unnecessary scars that Dr. LaGrasso had created on me and he also explained what was wrong as he photoed my breasts. He then showed me how completely off both of my breasts are in a computer program, my nipples aren't centered, they are two different shapes, they should’ve been made smaller, I have major scaring and most importantly my right breast is 1.5 inches higher than my left and floats around whenever I lay down causing me a huge PAIN. Dr. Pinsky priced my corrective surgery at nearly $9000.00. I left MANY, MANY messages for Dr. Lagrasso. All which were never ever returned. I called his personal cell phone 2x and on the second message he called me back and told me he wasn't with Sleek because they weren't paying him and that he had spoken with Dr. Pinsky regarding my breasts and he told me he would like to be present during surgery (he called it "scrub-in".)
Can you believe that Dr. LaGrasso actually wanted to LEARN from my new surgeon????

To date Dr. LaGrasso still claims hes not responsible. He claims that my fight should be with Sleek Medspa... but Sleek didn't do my surgery - DR. LAGRASSO DID!

Ladies and Gentleman BEWARE!!

Dr. LaGrasso is a great salesman but a poor surgeon ...
