I wake up everyday, look myself in the mirror and am filled with nothing but REGRET and disappointment when I see my botched breast augmentation done by Dr Feldman. I waited 10 good years to get this procedure, did so much research on it and held out until I found a doctor "I could trust" to STILL end up in this position and it genuinely hurts. Dr feldman has the gift of gab, and won me over by talking to me for over an hour when I came in for my initial consult. I felt he had a passion for his work and cared about his patients but I was TOTALLY wrong. He butchered & over-dissected my right breast pocket, then filled it up with 770cc implants when I told him that the biggest i was comfortable going was 650. He took my physical safety, my personal preferences and my trust and threw it in the garbage for what he 'felt looked better'. I am now unable to workout without anxiety because my right implant LITERALLY flips VERTICALLY in my chest wall because the pocket he over-dissected is no longer holding it in place, and because of the weight of the implants not being supported by a pocket, my right boob has fallen so low and the incision can be seen when i stand straight up. Not only that, the right implant appears a whole cup size larger because it is not in place and i literally feel the implant floating around my chest wall.
The massive weight compresses my nipple so MUCH tht it is constantly sore and erect. I am still in significant pain where he over-cut my chest muscle to accommodate these implants bcz the stitches he placed to correct his mistake during my initial procedure did not hold. As I type this now 1 year and 2 months later I am STILL having pain and soreness on that nipple, and the side he over-cut, the implants flip in my chest and rest in my armpit even when im standing up. These great reviews are what led me to Dr feldman. His great bedside manner AFTER I came to him when the implant pocked gave out only (1 1/2 months after my procedure )was the TOTAL opposite of what I initially saw at my consult. He was condescending, sarcastic, demeaning, he even rolled his eyes at me and told me I was hard to please. The way they look was concerning but my major point to him was the weight, pain, and implants FLIPPING VERTICALLY in my chest even when applying lotion to my chest, and sinking into my armpit. He was so dismissive, and told me "he didnt know what would happen if he tried to fix it and It would cost me". I choose this doctor bcz he was inexpensive, &It was the biggest mistake I made. He even denied my implants flipping in my chest and i had to literally stand in front of him and rub my chest as if i was putting lotion on just so he would see it happen. THEN he laid me down and manually FLIPPED them back in place. It was humiliating. 4 visits later, he FINALLY agreed to "try" and fix his mistake but at that point I wouldn't trust this man with my toenail let alone allow him to hurt me even more. He even charged me almost what the entire procedure initially cost me to CORRECT the mistake HE MADE on that breast.
I was EXTREMELY meticulous post-op and followed his instructions to a T. This was no fault of my own and he didn't care. I can say that i was ok with my breasts for 1 1/2 post op. Since then, I have been so sad and filled with guilt for choosing a surgeon based on price and him talking to me for a long time at my consult. Ive been to 3 doctors for consult to fix what he did to me and they are who told me it was an over-dissected pocket and that this big of an implant should never have been placed in me on my 1st surgery, from an A-cup with tubular breasts. In clothes its noticeable, and without clothes the difference is humiliating. I cant believe I was bothched. I feel so awkward being touched intimately (because they always flip and it would freak someone out), even being hugged that right boob slides deep into my armpit, it just makes me so sad that I trusted this doctor.
