I regret ever letting this "Doctor" touch me. I went to Body by Ravi expecting to fulfill my dream of getting a breast augmentation and instead was maimed and cast away. At first Christina Krepps, one of the ladies there, patient coordinatior I believe, was so nice to me. Very patient with me because I couldn't decide on a size, and I thought that was very thoughtful of her. I relied on her a lot during the consultation until after the surgery. Fast forward to the surgery day. 1. The anesthesiologist was LATE and I was wide awake as they rolled me to the operating room where they asked me to heave myself on the operating table. My drip bag was dry because I was dehydrated and instead of giving me another one to ensure I was hydrated they shot the anesthesia into my IV and it burned at first so the lady stopped and then said, "its gonna burn since you don't have any fluids in the your drip bag" and shot me anyway! Immediately after the surgery upon looking in the mirror I noticed my right breast was NOT right. I brought this to their attention THAT DAY. I called and told them that the shape was odd and not round at all. They said "theyre swollen, don't worry". I know swollen and misshapen are two different things and my right breast was misshapen. At my first follow up and every follow up afterwards I told Ravi my concerns and that I was having pain and extremely uncomfortable when not wearing a bra and he blew it off EVERY TIME. He told me I was being a perfectionist and that theres always a chance that the breasts are misaligned and "most women don't care because at least their breasts are bigger". I was shocked at this statement and immediately burst into tears because I would have NEVER gone to Ravi if he disclaimed that my "perfectly symmetrical breasts" (his exact words describing me) might become wopped and lopsided. As I stood there crying and sobbing Ravi stood said okay and walked out leaving me exposed when he opened the door. It really added insult to injury. Noone ever came back and checked to see if I was okay and I left the office. I explained to Angela the receptionist (I'm not sure if she still works there as whenever I call I speak to Carla or Natalie) my concerns because we bonded over the fact that we got breast augs so close together. She said "well did you want them bigger or did you want them round?". I was SHOCKED that she said this. I felt like I was at some back alley surgery center where a knockoff "doctor" was performing surgeries willy nilly and without license. FINALLY at my 6 month check up Ravi admitted he made a mistake and made the pocket for my right breast entirely too high causing the top of the breast to be flat and angled and having the implant sit really high on my chest. Ravi said "don't worry you cant see it when you have a shirt on". Im telling you it was shock after shock dealing with these people. I couldn't believe such unprofessionalism at a PLASTIC SURGERY CENTER. Instead of offering to fix his mistake free of charge he was charging ME. I told him I was not expecting to have to pay for 2 breast augs in the span of a year, therefore, I would not be able to do that as soon as they were requiring me to. The breast is extremely uncomfortable, its flat on the top instead of round like my left breast. After going to several other surgeons to get their opinion about my situation I was informed that he in fact maimed me and that is was unethical for him to charge me to fix his mistake seeing as I clearly did all the aftercare correctly because there was no problem with my left breast. Also, I asked Dr. Ravi for a natural but large appearance and instead of giving me the options of the different profiles so that I could decide he felt as though he could make the decision for me. To give me the high profile option giving my breasts the appearance of torpedos. I am not a doctor so I need guidance and to be given all my options and I was not. After months of calling crying begging for help because of the pain in my right breast caused from him misplacing the implant the office finally obliged, still at cost to me. I wanted to get it taken care of as soon as possible because the pain is close to unbearable when not wearing a bra. But the office gave me so many hoops to jump through, as I have since moved 2.5 hrs away to Austin and cant come to the office for unnecessary trips like how they forced me to the first time when I still lived an hour away. I cant believe I even considered letting "Dr. " Ravi touch me again. Now I am forced to get a remove and replace (take out the old pornstar looking implants and put in medium profile natural looking implants) AND a pocket adjustment from another more skilled surgeon. Costs that would have been saved if I would not have gone to Ravi in the first place. Beware. They will maim you and once they have their money from you they will be rude to you and yell at you over the phone if you dare to ask questions about YOUR BODY.

This is a terrible plastic surgeon I wouldn't refer anybody to him, I went to him to get a tummy tuck & lipo, on my abdomen and my sides but when I woke up from surgery & my abdomen was a litte flatter but ny sides hadn't been touched . So I had the nurse to call him , I asked him what happened why is my sides not done and he said that he couldn't do them both but he told me before in a consultation that he could do them both so he said that he'll do them at a later date. So a few months pass and I went back because I wanted him to finish what he started he then told me that I love had to do was pay for the anesthesia so then I said okay well let me go ahead and get a few more things done and we can just do it all together so is admin quoted me a price so I told her okay it was a little more expensive than I expected so let me save for it so when I saved for it and when I went back less than a year afrer saving what his previous admin quoted me, he had a new admin so I went back and to get another consultation on what was previously not done and what I wanted to have done this time so after the consultation when I called back the price had double from what his old Admin told me so I was like well thats unfair it's less than a year and you should honor what I was I was quoted & he refused to honor it then he lied and said that he did do my whole tummy tuck and lipo what he know he didn't so I'm getting a lawyer to sue him because he did not do the job and he said he was going. So for your own good PLEASE GO TO SOMEONE That honors their quotes & doesnt LIE about what he has & has not performed
