Botched Breast Reduction

If I could give a negative 10 I would. I hope Dr. Winder reads this. It's been 21 years ago since I let him perform a breast reduction. One of the biggest mistakes of my life. Wished there was social networking around back then. He cut a muscle during the operation that supplied the blood flow to the top of my breast. I needed another 2 operations and skin grafts to fix the damage he caused. He tore my nipple scabs off leaving me with NO skin. Had he left them I would've healed and not needed the skin graft. About a year later he decided to do cosmetic tattoing and blend the color and make me an aerola. He didn't cleanse my skin and shot bacteria into me and the next day I looked like someone took a baseball bat to my skin. I had cellulitis and adema and was badly infected. For some reason this man decided to tattoo my nipple salmon colored when my other one was brown. So for many years I had an orange mishaped nipple and a normal brown one. This man should have his license stripped!!!!! I was stupid and 17 and the whole time he told me it was my body and I just had bad circulation. Years later I went to see another plastic surgeon and he explained exactly what had happened to me. Shame on you Winder for being a terrible and heartless doctor for such a young patient. I'm sure you remember me and I'm not the naive young woman any longer. Thanks to your botched operation I decided to go into helping women that need cosmetic tattooing and re-create nipples for them. Please if you're considering using this man, please don't!

Five Stars

I had a couple procedures by Doctor Winder in 2007 and just because he doesn't swing from the chandeliers doesn't mean he isn't good at what he does. I love Dr. Winder and I am not sure that he is still practicing but I would love to go back to him.

Why I had Dr. Winder do my facelift.

I have had multiple surgeries with Dr. Winder. He is one of my favorite people. Not only can he perform any plastic/cosmetic surgery you may want, the man can reconstruct a smashed head or reattach or severed limb. That's the Dr. I want doing my facelift. Some people may confuse his bed side manner with gruffness, while I see him as truly professional, competent and hilarious at times.

Horrible bedside manner

Dr. Winder had an awful bedside manner. He was extremely rude. He almost refused to suture my lip because he believed a physician could easily do it. I would never recommend him. He also came into the room without washing his hands.

Good Doc. but need to adjust desk staff

I really like Doc. Winder and have been treated for Lower Bleph, Botox and once for Restyln. He does a great job on these things but can sometimes seem a bit grumpy. His medical assistance are mostly pretty nice and helpful although some of them appear to be in training. BUT, the desk staff appears to have a chip on their shoulders and come off rude and to be quite honest Snotty! It turns me off and I don't want to spend my money at an office with that kind of attitude when I can get the same service at the same prices elsewhere.
