Bad experience with tummy tuck and breast lift / augmentation in the same operation

Bad experience with tummy tuck and breast lift / augmentation in the same operation

Mcas

Terrible experience
I had a tummy tuck and breast lift /augmentation in the same 5 hour operation .
Drains were removed early resulting in fluid gushing out of the wound . Two inches of my scar opened up . 17 weeks later I am being treated for my open tummy wound .
Breast stitches didn’t desolve so my body rejected around 10 of them . 17 weeks later I have large open wounds around my nipple .
I received 1600 compensation from ‘New Look Holiday ’ they are Dr O. Txxxxn agents.

Hello Mcas, thank for the review. Are you ok or at least better now?? Have you contacted the doctor / clinic?
Sorry but we can't publish the exact name of the doctor because he is not active on our web and we are really trying to be fair on both sides (unfair competition, defamation, etc.). You can share the specific information through personal message.

It is so unfair as I see you post positive comments about Dr Txxxx.
I am not better , I need plastic surgery to correct horrible scars , I also still have open wounds , this is not normal after 18 weeks .

I understand you, Mcas, but we really need to be unbiased about it. If somebody looks for info about tummy tuck / breast lift or augmentation they will see your review and can ask you through personal message. It is really important to see that complications can occure and only a proffesional can tell if it's a surgeon's fault, some kind of predisposition or just a bad luck and we can't be the judge of that. I understand that you try to warn others and you are warning them thanks to your review. I hope you are in a care of a doctor right now? What should you do next? Wait for it to heal or do you need surgery to repair it now?

Why do you only publish good reviews . This is not unbiased.
I am waiting to heal.

I have had professionals looking after me since 2 weeks after surgery, they have advised me that the surgeon removed my drains to quickly and that outdated material was used to suture , this is why it didn’t desolve.

hiya, the pictures really seem as a horror but stay calm, this is really something that could happen to anybody. Had you had any operation before this surgery? Each body reacts in a different way, I could have everything perfectly healed in 2 weeks having the same doctor, treatment and conditions as you, but your recovery could last much longer and be more complicated.
I have seen several of cases as yours, and they all healed nicely. I do not know what your surgeon told you once he found out about it??? (as I supposed you are not in the country you were operated in, right? ). This could be the point why you are disappointed that the contact with the surgeon is limited based on the distance between you and him.

What are the current doctor recommendations? Is it a plastic surgeon, too?

Take care a please share the info with us, as the others need to know there is not 100% sure it will be easy.

New look holiday gave me 1600 Euro compensation .
They just wanted me to shut up, they didn’t care about me .
I disagree with what you are saying as my surgeon here in the uk has told me that there was malpractice on Dr T*** behalf.. my tummy was still full of fluid when he removed the drains. I literally gushed with fluid after 2 weeks it was horrific.
18 weeks after surgery I am still having sutures removed , they never dissolved .. hence my body won’t heal.

Mcas, I do not want to fight with you neither doubt your situation. Sincerely.
I did want to support you only as I read and talked to few women in a very similar situation.

The thing with doctors is a bit tricky, though. The local ones never support those abroad (they do not want to support medical turism, why should they? Firstly they loose patients who are price sensitive, secondly the medical turism works great if there is no complication, because then if a patient is thousands miles away they cannot check them in person and this is why troubles occur from time to time).

As you wrote "Breast stitches didn’t desolve so my body rejected around 10 of them.." it seems that your body fought with the double surgery at time from the very first moment. Combined surgery is another reason which increases the ratio of complications.

The agency think I cannot judge:)...I feel for you, Mcas

Hi I just wanted to update you , my breast is still open and I am awaiting New surgery .

Mcas

Ontop of all these problems my breasts are a strange square shape, the implants are high in my breast and under my nipple has drooped .
I am hoping the implants will drop into the lower half a little more ... if not I will have to have my breasts operated on again.
I am devistated by the whole experience.
New look holiday took weeks to reply to my emails .. left me alone to cope with their mistakes .

let it all heal, I know it must be frustrating and you expected a nice result for sure, but it all can come once your body recover.
follow your doctor's instructions and be patient - there is nothing more to do, unfortunately.
the shape of your breast is not finel neither, they say it takes up to 3months to settle down...let me know please

Did you talk to the surgeon or only to the agency?

Reply to Miš_
Mcas

I only talked through the agency , they took weeks to reply to questions if they bothered at all.
The last few questions I asked them they ignored.

It is nearly 5 months since my operation, does that mean this is the final shape of my breast ?

We are sharing here only information, Mcas couldn' t expect solving her situation via online forum - this is just about empathy and sharing info. I thought Mcas could help that I really talked to very happy patients, both very unhappy patients and yes, they healed...sooner or later. everybody undergoing surgery is at risk with possible complications, Robin1956.
The rate of complications itself depends on so many factors ( BMI, smoker, general healing process - do I recover fast and well? Do I usually suffer from bruises, keloid scars?, do I follow precisely postop care....and off course to the skills and proffesionalism of the doctor - evaluating the surgery as a good option, combination of 3 operations?? (isn't it itself crazy - doing breast lift, augmentation and tummy tuck all at once?? This needs a super intensive recovery and health care afterwards. Doing this abroad is tricky and risky, for the only reason you cannot talk to the doctor, if there is something wrong. This is not an easy operation.

This is it, do not judge, I hope Mcas understood my point, that I didn't want to hurt anyone, I just wanted to be emphatic to her and encourage to solve the unhappy situation.

I am awaiting skin graft operations .
Still not healed . A British breast surgeon has said my breast tissue was over stretched . And that I should not have had so many procedures in one operation .
New look holidays were only interested in my money not my health .
They have compensated me and now refuse to acknowledge any of my emails .
Terrible people horrific situaltion

Hi Mcas, sorry to bother you with that again, but you really can't publish the surgeron's name here, but you can send it to Vayda through personal message, ok?
Did you talk about the complications with the doctor or just with the agency?

Only the agency

Mcas, maybe it would be good to try talking directly to the surgeon without the agency. What do you think about it? He can answer some questions about the shape of your breast as well.

Hi still no reply to my email.
I also sent a polite message to new look holiday , they are ignoring me too .
This is what happens when you have surgery abroad, I cannot go and see them about my issues and they can ignore my questions .
So the problems all end up on the NHS .
I would never advise people to have surgery abroad .

Hi Mcas, sorry to hear that. Yes, there are definitely ups and downs about having a plastic surgery abroad. We have an interesting article about it here: https://www.estheticon.com/news/medical-tourism-is-trade-off
Did you try a phone call or just an email?

I emailed .
I’m not calling them . They have all my contact details and continue to totally ignore me .
I had 3 surgeries with them that day ... I have complications and no support , can you not see why I want to name and Shame ?

When they wanted my business , my time and my money the called me incessantly, replied to emails immediately... the persuaded me to have the breast augmentation after seeing my photos , I only wanted the tummy tuck .. it was them who upsaled me into breast operations .
Now they ignore me .

Please don’t be naive. They want British women’s money . But when things go wrong they offer compensation then ignore their clients.
It says in your discussion about travel tourism that 5-10% of operations have complications . Well both my tummy tuck and my breast operation has had terrible complications .. what does this say about the surgeon ?
