I first had breast implants done in New York City...

I first had breast implants done in New York City in the early 80's. In the early 90's I had to have my left breast implant removed and replaced. Early 2001, I had liposuction as well as a tummy tuck.

Here's where the good/bad and finally perfection accrued.(May 18, 2015)

My first breast implants were done In 1984, at first I was pleased months later I started to feel lumps, which are formed known as capsules. In the early 90's. Now living in Hong Kong as I presently still am, I returned to New York. As my left breast seem to have doubled, it was recommended by a top doctor in Hong Kong that I return to New York to have surgery. I did, little to my surprise since the right breast was fine, the doctor chose to replace only the left Implant. By this time it was about 13 years after the first surgery. Once I woke up I was informed that my left breast implant was a little larger then the right. I trusted and never would have expected the nightmares to come. (First, I was told I had saline, never I had silicon)

I also, had liposuction as well as a tummy tuck with the same doctor. I was released, from his in house surgery ward and released to return back to Hong Kong. Way to early within a week, I catch a terrible infection that left and I still have a horrible scare.

Again, I had to return to New York due to the Dog ears, which I understand can be a common problem. However, should be without any problem repairable upon the next surgery. Didn't happen and I had a horrible, horrible scare, one full dog ear and one small one. The scare wasn't even straight.

Everything turned around this pass May 2015, after numerous, attempts to schedule an appointment in New York with the same doctor. Which I was promised via a phone conversation with both the doctor and his right hand office staff.

I could no longer, handle the pain and a growing fear, I was keeping to myself. From the pain in my right breast, the left one was hard they look weird.

I was visiting my mother early February I was in pain, however, I was still foolish enough to feel embarrassed to even consider another surgeon even with my health at risk.

While In Florida, I happen to see Dr. Pedro Soler in a commercial. At first I was like omg, advertising on t.v. For services how tacky. Well. I can bite my tongue. I returned to Hong Kong and my right breast continued to burn. I counselled a surgeon here in Hong Kong and I wasn't comfortable with approach. This also, being a Hong Kong's top surgeon and one I have known for years.

I finally called Dr. Soler's office and explain my problem to his nurse. I had my sister follow up with other conversations to explain I would be flying in from Hong Kong and briefly explain as best as possible my problem.

I flew into Tampa on Tuesday evening 12th of May meet with Dr. Soler on the 13th. Immediately, I felt I was In good hands. However, considering I felt this way before I was still beyond scared.

My surgery was scheduled for the 18th May. On Monday. I was sure he would not be there upon my arrival, I was sure he would be late, I assumed he had a wild weekend. Good looking as he is and smooth.

Wrong, wrong wrong... His bedside manners amazing. His approach in making me feel comfortable speaking to me prior, to the surgery, to having me relax by allowing my sister to sit with me while I was being prepared for my surgery.

Dr. Soler, removed/replaced both my implants. Fabulous liposuction on my stomach, the dog ear major on my left side gone and the minor one in my right side gone.

My self confidence has been restored,everyday I look better and better. Of course I listened and still listen to Dr. Soler. As I live in Hong Kong, we set a date In order for us to Skype and he could see and put any anxiety to rest .

I would/didn't never thought I would feel the way I do now. It's amazing to see a Doctor who takes such pride in his work.

I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Pedro Soler, to my friends and fa. In making recommendation one needs to be sure of who we recommend . He's just great.

Simply, put a great person I am honoured to call my doctor.
