Very kind staff who helped talk me off the ledge when I was inquiring about this procedure. I did the implant draining in office and have yet to remove the shells (which I worried about), but the nurses were great and reassuring. When I met with Dr. Haws she was awesome and the only PS to tell me I could do implant removal and not put implants back and/or do a lift. She told me she thought I would look great after removal whereas many other surgeons insisted I would need to replace my implants AND have a lift to have any hopes of looking normal. The kindness and helpfulness of the staff was amazing. I’m so happy I decided to remove implants as it’s the best thing for me at this point in my life. I’m also glad I didn’t proceed with a lift yet and waited the advised 6-12 months to see if it’s necessary.
Superior infection control practices, highly professional and competent medical staff, excellent pain control, surgical results far exceeded expectations.
Dr. Rudderman is extremely kind and knowledgeable as is his staff. I never felt rushed at my appointments - felt like they had all the time in the world to answer my questions. His offices are amazing as was the surgery center. I would highly recommend him :)
The information provided during my pre-op visit and the packet covered all the facets of the surgery including detailed directions to selected facility. Also received patient assistance regarding payment options and was given an estimate which was very close to actual expense. The staff made me feel comfortable discussing the surgery and with examination. I couldn't be more pleased with the results.
Dr. Lee thoroughly explained the procedure to me and patiently answered all of my questions. Dr. Lee ensured me that the procedure I was considering was one of the less complicated and that helped to ease my nervousness. Dr. Lee discussed realistic post-surgery results and options with me. After I made the appointment to have the procedure, both Dr. Lee and Nurse Lauren encouraged me to contact them if I had any questions or concerns before surgery. The open line of communication made me feel that I would be in the hands of caring professionals. I was impressed with the level of organization and professionalism of all at BPS. Post-surgery, I had minimal to no pain and experienced no complications. I am very happy with the post-surgery results! This was something that I had wanted to do for years but, I was nervous about having surgery. Dr. Lee ensured me that the procedure was one of the less complicated procedures and that he had performed many. Dr. Lee and the nurses and staff at BPS made me feel that I was in the hands of caring, capable, professionals.
Dr. Naidu kept me informed as to the entire procedure from the time I met her right through my check up after surgery. She was very knowledgeable. Her bedside manner was amazing. Surgery was swift and everything went well. She was kind and gentle. I highly recommend her. She was by my side from beginning to the end, continuously responding to all my concerns.
First after over a year of several meetings with Dr. Bash I felt so comfortable and certain about my decision to remove vs. replace my implants. Additionally, Dr. Bash and staff are so incredibly professional, knowledgeable and fun that it made this experience that much more memorable. I do not regret my decision one bit and love the way my body is healing and responding post surgery. I have a pretty high pain tolerance but I literally had no pain or nausea. I didn't even need ibuprofen. This was so easy and simple and I know my body is very appreciative as it's healing very well.
The knowledgeable and caring staff was able to answer questions. Dr. Riolo is compassionate and understanding. Overall experience was refreshing!
Every person I saw, from receptionist, to the doctor made me know I have come to the RIGHT place!
I had my implants removed after 10+ years of being sick and no other doctor could figure out what was wrong with me. My health was failing, I hurt all the time, and I was unable to keep weight on. I had sleep issues, headaches, kidney problems, stomach issues, joint pains so bad that there were days I could hardly walk. My body was failing me and there were no answers as to why. Dr. Whitfield was great. He listened to my concerns and answered all my questions. He did an amazing job at removing the implants and was able to get all of the capsules as well via an enbloc procedure. Although I have scars they are very minimal and are actually far less visible than previous scars from prior surgery. I have my health back and feel like I have a new quality of life. I am a mother of 4, have 2 grand babies, and my own business. I can now focus on what is important and enjoy each day instead of just making it through a day on good days or spending many days in bed or on the couch. Thank you Dr. Whitfield.
The staff was amazing. Dr. Whitfield constantly in contact with me. He was so compassionate.
I had over a month trying to get someone to address my problem and he was quick on taking care of it and very understanding and made me feel at ease.....I will be coming back to him for other procedures in the future
The doctor and all the staff listened to me and cared about my individual issues. The surgery went perfectly and I am thrilled with the results. I am also very pleased with my follow ups. This was a very positive experience and I know I made the right decision on which surgeon was best for me. I feel better!!!! I am no longer in pain!!!! I have my life back! And I really like the way my breasts look. They look better than even before I had breast implants put in in 2002.
Dr. Maxwell is simply the best. From my implant surgery 13 years ago to this explant with lift my experience was without question amazing. Dr. Maxwell is skilled beyond measure. Shes both kind and direct so there is no confusion or doubt. Both my surgeries were life changing. This explant with lift even more so. Dr. Maxwell did an excellent job and it was more than worth it. The entire staff are also the best of the best. They take their time to answer all questions and provide the necessary information. With their knowledge and professional attitude I was well prepared by the day of surgery. From the moment I checked in the surgical staff embraced me with their efficiency. They swiftly led me through all preparations. Dr. Hunter the anesthesiologist was excellent as well. Although it was stressful by the time everyone finished preparing me and wheeled me in I was completely calm. If you live in Tucson Dr. Maxwell, staff, and beautiful office with surgical suite is the place to go.
The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. I actually traveled from Hawaii and they accommodated me the whole time. Dr D’Amore was very friendly and gave me a clear picture in my mind of how I would look after. It was important to me to have an experienced surgeon who knows what he’s doing for the enbloc/removal. He exceeded my expectations and I’m so happy with my results. My results were amazing. Dr. D'Amore is a true artist.
Dr. John Diaz is very professional, an artist with his surgery, and kind hearted. He thoroughly explains the process of surgery in all aspects, and genuinely cares about his patients. His staff is also warm hearted and makes your feel so comfortable and beautiful! Kim Ngo is also an amazing nurse and explains everything a patient needs to know. Gina is also very professional. Lisa is lovely and warm always answers any questions you might have. I have to say the entire staff is amazing! Dr. John Diaz gave me the most beautiful breast I could have ever imagined. They look so natural and lovely and I am healing fast and so pleased! He is a true artist!
Dr. Rudderman was highly knowledgeable while kindly listening to all my thoughts/feelings. Dr. Rudderman is committed to studying why so many women are having symptoms of breast implant illness and not treating us all the same. His clinic nurse was kind, gentle, and supportive as well.
