MICHAEL B. STEVENS / Plastic Surgery-Breast Augmentation

1 Visalia, CA, United States Review updated:

After 2 surgeries one breast is hard, dented, has a huge bump on the top, and pops out over tops. The other is loose, bottoming out, lower, and has ripples all around because it was over-dissected. One breast protrudes so much that you can tell - even when I wear a sweatshirt - that it has more projection (about a half inch - obvious across the room!). The other rolls off my chest when I lay down. I can't lay on my back (one breast rolls off my chest and the other doesn't move). I can't lay on my stomach b/c I'm afraid that all the support on the loose breast will tear and the contracted breast hurts. I can only lay on one side. I have to wear an ultr-supportive underwire bra at all times. The doctor just delayed all repairs for "a couple of years - it might fix itself." Do not put yourself through this. He does not respond to patient complaints. Fix it "free" surgeries end up costing almost as much as originals (I was asked for my credit card the day before - I almost fainted hearing the price, but was not about to argue before going under). Second surgery (to fix the first) was so much worse than the first. I will never go back again, but now have to pay about $20, 000 to fix all of the problems he caused, take on lots of scars, and of course, no guarantees. These surgeries are about as botched as you can get - I have almost every boob job problem except for synmastic (thank heavens I did not go through with surgery #3). DO NOT GO HERE UNLESS YOU WANT TO BE DISFIGURED!!!

    Micheal B. Steven is a Conceited, and veiling person; negligent so called Doctor. His website states that he is a well qualified for conduct cosmetic surgeon. At this time I scheduled an appointment with him I was ignorant on educating myself about the research that needs to be done to find a Honest, and caring doctor that most importantly had no law suit against him. I wanted to have rhinoplasty and was so excited. He made it seem as if it was nothing. He did not inform me of any of the complication that may occur after the procedure and on June 30, 2006 after my surgery I went home a happy person. However, after the first week my nose being to bleed, I attempted to contact Michael and he was in Europe…Good for him. Oh, and did I mention that his “assistant” I have no idea what type of medical education she has most likely none, anyone she lost reception as it was the 4th of july and there on call nurse said the bleeding was normal……….I almost dead due to the amount of blood loss I had and almost went into cardiac arrest………..after I recovered for this complication I visited Michael and he was not empathetic I felt so horrible when I saw him he is a person with no feeling. My nose is not set in place and will never look the same again...Do not let him make money on you and not take care of you……Negligent define that person and his so called practice in Visalia and in BH…..I am sure he rarely has client’s there….That’s why on the day of my surgery had had about three other girls ungoing surgery, just out and two of us preparing for it…..do not let him pump you out on an assembly line…..get a doctor that gives you all the information without having to ask (of course ask questions)…….and get several opinions for several doctors and one that you really feel comfortable with ask to look at their work for the particular procedure you want done and understand how to take care of yourself after the produce and the possible complication that could happen when under the knife. Good Luck…Remember this guy = no good.

    Dr. Stevens is a great plastic surgeon! I asked Dr. Stevens about all your reviews I had seen under all your different names all over the internet before I even had surgery with him. He wouldn’t tell me your name even though he said it was already a matter of public record but he said you were a lawyer that tried unsuccessfully to sue him and are now trying to hurt him by putting these anonymous dishonest reviews all over the internet for several years. I asked about all your complaints and he said you already had misshaped breasts with dents and ripples and contractures and over dissection before you even came to see Dr Stevens and that he had the pictures to prove it. Why aren’t you at least honest about having bad surgery before you came to Dr. Stevens instead of letting people think he caused your problems? All he did was change your implants which didn’t require cutting so that it was impossible for him to cause the over dissection or shredding you claim and that the piece of plastic you say he left was actually left by the first surgery not by him and you never even had an infection as you say you did. His office is modern and clean. His surgery center is spotless and you could eat off the floor. I asked his office manager and she said she gave you numerous copies of your records any time you asked and I believe her. Why can’t you just be honest and tell the truth. Don’t lawyers tell the truth? Dr. Stevens is too much of a gentleman to do it but I told him he should report you to what ever agency looks into lawyer misconduct. You should be ashamed-use your talents to help others and don’t make false accusations that hurt people and ruin the credibility of the doctor rating systems on the internet for everyone else. And I really love the results he gave me, soft, natural beautiful breasts and no scars!

    I had my plastic surgery done with Dr. Stevens and he did great. He was informative, straightforward and kind. He was also very attentive the day of as I had a hard time with the pain/recovery immediately after and kept me under his watch until I was ready to go home. Great Doctor!

    The nasty comments toward "Dr." Stevens surgery victims is a trademark cruelty of him and his staff and were most likely posted directly by them. I can't tell you how many times I have seen that phony "Brendah" review about how great he is. By the way, if he had disclosed all the information you say he did about these dissatisfied patients, he would have been in total violation of doctor/patient confidentiality. On that basis alone, you have admitted he cannot be trusted.

    I was curious about complaints made on this Dr. so I decided to check them out. I had breast aug. with him and I have absolutely nothing to complain about. With any surgery there is always a risk and everyone is different. You will not know what the outcome will be or any problems that may occur until they go inside. This is my only cosmetic procedure done and I couldn't be happier! My breast are perfect, soft and very natural looking. No visible scars. Also the bedside manner was great & check up appt. was fine. I'm sorry your experience was bad, but mine was great and I would see him again for other procedures in the future.

    I has a breast augmentation and rhinoplasty from Dr. Stevens, and 10 years later, I am STILL happy with the results. He listens well, and is a caring doctor. I believe those complaints were fake, too, because is am amazing surgeon!
