I had to several biopsies on my left breast so I needed to have reconstruction work to even them out and also I got them lifted ..... I woke up from my surgery after making it very clear I did not want to be anything bigger than a C and he made me close to a E .....after he had several complaints from me he finally realized he made a mistake because they were falling underneath my armpits ....he double charged me yes he made me pay for it and I still have having issues and never got a lift !!
