My breast reduction surgery was in 2017 and it is now April 2020 and I still experience daily pain, paresthesia, and daily sadness and depression over how my breasts look. They are completely lopsided, misshapen, and my scars are so jagged it looks like a person cut me ragged with a dull knife. I have nerve damage that causes me to fluctuate between numbness, pain, and sever itching that can't be stopped, and tenderness from having a high sensitivity level (sometimes wearing a t-shirt causes me horrible discomfort). Because of the shape of my breasts I am no longer able to wear bras that have cup shapes, and because of the pain and sensitivity I cannot wear any elastic that rubs or squeezes on my scars. Dr. Alfaro was also not friendly or comforting toward me in anyway during my consultations, and during my follow up exams he dismissed my excruciating pain, anxiety, and concerns by offering to perform a second procedure in his office for $500 cash.

This so called doctor left me totally maimed after what was supposed to be a breast reduction and a lift. My left incision is not in the crease beneath my breast, but in my upper abdomen. My right incision is way to high. My nipples are uneven, different sizes and shapes. I have ugly folds of skin between my breasts that stick out and feel terrible. I could go on and on......

He was very rude to my sister who has scarring from a scald as a child. He coldly told her he couldn't do anything for her.
