Monarch Med Spa - Do not go here for breast enhancements
Breast Augmentation Enhancement Silicone Implants - Complaint
KING OF PRUSSIA, PENNSYLVANIA -- My wife had her procedure in the summer of 2011. After mothering 4 children she was quite depleted up front and wanted this for herself.
She used a Dr. through Monarch Med Spa near King of Prussia and they supposedly went over all the possible complications and results and she was forced to sign a form saying she can't give any bad feedback about her experience. Well I didn't sign anything and people need to know what can go wrong. She chose silicone implants.
The doc prefers to go in just under the nipple, not under the breast, which my wife preferred but wasn't told at all about the complication that followed. The scar under the nipple can somehow grow and attach the whole way into the implant area so that when her muscles tense at all her nipple bottom pulls / sucks in like an invisible finger is poking the tissue. Not right.
The forewarned "encapsulation" of tissue around the implant did happen and causes the area to be harder than desired and didn't allow the implant to lower as it was supposed to. This causes the nipple to be lower and not appear quite right.
We did all the physical therapy we were instructed to do. Guys, you have to help and this isn't fun or sexy at all pushing and pressing hard in certain ways as the tissue heals to help prevent scar tissue build up and proper setting. It was quite a turn off to have to man handle the new breasts and cause my wife much pain and discomfort, several times daily.
We went back with complaints and the doc went in for a little outpatient surgery the next week to try and clean up the scar tissue that pulls the nipple in. The office did this free of charge to try and get us to be satisfied customers. I took off work to take her for the procedure where he made another incision under the original and pulled out much scar strand and cut off. Weeks later the nipple still inverts, pulls in with muscle contraction only slightly less and now can you not only feel the original scar ( like a thin shoelace stuck under the flat scar) but now there are two.
He says this is super rare to happen and he's only ever had this happen once or twice ever depending on how different bodies heal.
I don't feel this way at all. I feel for $8000 there should be no complaints or flaws. I feel he didn't do something right and am sure they did not go over this possible complication.
