VERY COMFORTING

dr. Higdon was an excellent choice for my breast surgery. I was experiencing massive amounts of pain most times I seen him and he was nothing but very nice and reassuring that my issue could be fixed. After 3 years battling my breast issue it is finally fixed and I am thrilled!

VERY BAD EXPERIENCE

He did a terrible job of placing implants!!! One is like a big grape fruit and another one is like an orange!!! I am paying a price of selecting him!!! Both breasts are apart!!! It's really shame that he is practicing in Vanderbilt!!!He has no clue of a woman's breasts shape are where exactly they need to be!!! They need to be on the chest not under the arms and armpits!!!
