It was with my old plastic surgeon and he just didn’t seem like he didn’t listen
to the concerns I had and he brushed them off. I told him that I wanted certain reconstructions done, and he refused and that his work was fine. I felt he just wasn’t mindful of my needs and lacked caring. And your third experience? I just felt like another number. Like the doctor wanted to just get me in, get me through and get me out.
So how did you find Dr. DuBou and Louisville Plastics even with all the research you had done?
Actually he was a referral from Crystal. I learned in this process that websites are good for getting information about a doctor, but the face-to-face office visit is so very important. With Dr. DuBou – it was like speaking with a realistic person. Learning that Dr. DuBou repairs hands showed me how accurate and detailed and advanced he is as a surgeon. By the time we were finished with our consultation I knew he would pay very close attention to my surgery. He was very professional and extra caring. He makes you feel safe.
Tell me about the decisions behind your choice to increase your breast size in your procedure with Louisville Plastics and Dr. DuBou.
I was a size C and I wanted to be a full D. Since overcoming my anorexia ten years ago, I was more developed and had a normal, healthy and fuller body. So I wanted proportional balance and wanted to look good in clothes.
