Dr. B is very friendly and listens. He come off a bit phoney at times because he is so overly friendly, but I cannot imagine him being rude. His office staff all seem to have a chip or two on their shoulders, expecially the ones who show you into the examination rooms - Now they can be rude. I have had Breast Augementation with him, I left the size pretty much up to him and I went from an A to a C, the size is perfect, I', 5'5", 127lbs. I do have one major complaint, that one breast has healed with almost no scar, yet the the other breast has a very bad scar. He then offered to fix the bad scar but has the nerve to charge me to fix it. For this reason I cannot recommend and won't tell who did my Breast Augmentation although many have asked who did mine because they do look very good in general.
I had breast implant surgery at Dr. Bhattacharya in 2006. When I initially called the office for an appointment, the first thing the receptionist said when I told her that I was interested in breast implants was that he didn't do large breasts a la Pam Anderson (or a similar celebrity). I thought it was odd that a receptionist would make that sort of comment, but I proceeded on to the consultation. I didn't want extremely large breasts anyway. I was an "A" cup and was interested in a "C" cup. When I consulted with the doctor, he told me that we would decide the size together. He did all sorts of measurements and stated that the breasts had to fit my frame. I am almost 5'7" and 130 lbs. Anyway, when I asked him about the size he put me off. On the day of the surgery again I asked him about the size and he still would not commit. I ended up as a "B" and probably wouldn't have gone through the surgery if I had known the outcome. My left breast looks great, my right breast is too small and the implant never dropped. When I went in for my one post-op visit, he grabbed at my right breast, which caused pain, and then made a comment about scar tissue that had been left from a biopsy I had done a few years earlier. I had no idea there was any scar tissue but bottom line the implant never dropped. My breasts do look better than they did before but I am still angry that the doctor didn't ask me what size I wanted to be and took it upon himself to decide. I regard him as a very capable technician but paternalistic and treating women as if they can't make their own decisions. The funny thing is that my first post-op visit, the nurse was telling me how another patient had come back that same day, also post-op, and told the doctor that she wished he had given her bigger implants. So I guess this is his approach - keeping the implants small and not letting his patients decide. Just be forewarned!
I felt that dr. b was talking to me not down at me when i went foor my procedure because i had many questions. he took his time and made sure i fully understood everything before i left his office. the office was also not high pressure other offices wanted me to sign before i left but his office said to go and think of any other questions that someone would call to follow up or that i may call and ask any questions
