Breast Implant Removal, Breast Implant Revision

Dr Peters possesses the qualities that in retrospect I think all women should be looking for in a surgeon tasked to perform such major surgery such as BA. Things can go wrong so it is imperative that you choose a highly competent surgeon who is engaged and passionate about the industry like Dr Peters is. For this reason, I would have no hesitation referring any loved ones to Dr Peters for a BA. Professional, empathetic, friendly, patient, understanding, skilful, knowledgable, passionate about the industry, down to earth, non-judgemental and good-natured are just a few of the qualities that left me with full confidence that he was the surgeon to perform my BA revision. My initial surgery left me with lopsided, laterally overhanging (side), wide, wide apart, waterfall deformed breasts (nipples looking down). My revision not only required the entire removal and replacement with the correct type, size and width implants to achieve the results I wanted, Dr Peters also needed to correct my breast pockets which were both over and under-dissected in many different places and also correct the huge width between my breasts. I've since read on this site and many others that the cleavage gap seems to be an extremely difficult area to operate on, that requires a surgeon of great experience and skill to even attempt to repair. All in all, my case was an extremely difficult procedure that required an immense level of skill, current and up to date knowledge about the current advances in BA surgery, a careful approach and attention to detail. I am so incredibly happy with my results, not only did Dr Peters correct all the mistakes made previously, he went over and above my greatest expectations by producing (if I may say so) such a beautiful result, that was told to me previously was "impossible to achieve" due to my own flawed anatomy. Dr Peters restored my confidence and overall happiness and for that, I couldn't be more grateful and thankful. My recovery: zero bruising, zero bleeding, next to no pain (I didn't even finish a third of my painkillers), no archaic drains, excellent support and a general sense of content, knowing I made the right choice this time around. When selecting your surgeon: 1. Like Dr Peters, ensure they have current knowledge about the industry and what is CURRENT BEST PRACTICE 2. Observe if they take the time to actually listen to you rather than talk over you or wait for you to stop talking (the difference here btw my first surgeon and Dr Peters was really obvious). 3. Dr Peters ability to explain complex medical concepts to a layperson like me was INVALUABLE. Don't let someone confuse you with medical jargon 4. High cost DOES NOT necessarily mean quality. I resent the fact that I paid pretty much the same amount for the poor work done first round that I paid Dr Peters to perform his magic. 5.Forget all the above and see Dr Matthew Peters.
