Treatment Review

Think VERY, VERY Carefully Whether You Really Want to Do This

Breast Augmentation

24 Feb 2017, Created 2 months ago

I am writing this review in hopes of dissuading you from getting breast implants.

He personally called me on a Friday afternoon and asked many questions before asking me to come in for a... READ MORE

Jose Perez-Gurri, MD, FACS

5 out of 5 stars

I first had breast augmentation done with Dr. PG last year in the summer. I was happy with how everything had gone during surgery, but unfortunately ended up developing a complication which I realized after about three months. One of my breasts had "bottomed out" meaning I had inferior and lateral implant malposition (in medical terms). I communicated my concerns to the doctor who asked me to... READ MORE

Had IPL Today for Three Small Spots - West Springfield, MA

The whole area... READ MORE

It wasn't too terrible, I guess. Pain goes away for the most part after 3 months. READ COMMENT

It took about a week before I started driving. Only one of my breasts was revised so I did everything with the other hand. You definitely gotta take it easy. My doctor said no working of the pec muscle for 10 weeks so I've been avoiding... READ COMMENT
