I wouldn't recommend! After a breast reduction and lift one breast is a full cup size bigger than the other and he is not willing to fix it saying "it's within the normal range"...when they don't make a bra with one cup a D and the other a DD that is not normal! He then made it seem like the unevenness was all on me, meaning he claimed no responsibility, he even pointed out all the flaws on my face to show that I am not perfect so my breasts wouldn't be either! Seeing another dr to fix!

I have had a procedure done by Dr. Ganske and just recently have decided to have another. I have never felt so confidant as I have since Ive had the work done..

My first meeting with Dr Ganske was about his evaluating me regarding the need for breast reduction surgery and about my evaluation of him as the surgeon of my choosing. I was at ease with his physical assessment, encouraged by his knowledge and experience of the procedure, and confident that he would perform the surgery quite skillfully. Two weeks later the procedure was performed; I am now 5 weeks post op and most appreciative of Dr Ganske's wonderful technique and excellence of practice.
