Rating Feedback for Dr. Bayati (1687285)
'Dr. Bayati and her staff do not make you feel comfortable and are so unhelpful. She is very quick to leave the room during your visits, and after the surgery it seems they are not all that interested in your satisfaction, but rather more interested in covering their butts. I was starting to develop capsular contraction just 2 weeks after surgery and they never said anything. My breast were hard from the beginning and I asked why my breasts were so hard about 4 months in and her assistant told me saline were just naturally that way. About 10 months in I said I believed I had developed CC when Dr. Bayati finally said, yes I had. I asked about massaging them, and she told me that massaging doesn't work and plastic surgeons tell their patients to do that to keep them busy. Breast augmentation surgery is an emotional roller coaster and you will have questions. Go to a PS who shows compassion and also trains their staff to show compassion as well. I would never recommend Dr. Bayati.'
Capsular contracture is a known risk of breast implant surgery, as noted in all
informed consent documentation that is provided to patients prior to the
procedure. And to the extent massage may help, it is important not to start too
soon as that can cause post-operative hemorrhage. That said, there are no good
studies proving the effectiveness of massage to prevent contracture. Here is my
routine office practice and follow-up protocol. There is a routine 2 days, one
week, 2 week, 1 month, 3 month, 6 month and one year follow-up for breast
augmentation patients who do NOT exhibit any of the signs that you describe.
Someone who has a problem with contracture, would be seen even more regularly.
I have searched my records a patient who might have fit your clinical
description. They were all seen at more frequent intervals as described above.
Given that you described your situation anonymously, I cannot add any
details about your case. And even if I could, I would be foreclosed from doing
so publicly because of state and federal privacy laws.
I would welcome the opportunity to work with you to obtain the best possible
result. Please contact our office at your earliest convenience and make an
in-office appointment, so that your concerns can be addressed with a valid
