From positive to negative, not everyone is happy with results of surgery. After a double mastectomy and reconstruction, I am one who is not happy with the implants. I contacted the company and said I am familiar with what they should look like. What was supposed to be a teardrop silhouette according to the dr. looks more like a couple of partially filled baggies under the surface. Dr. Shastri's solution..wear a push-up bra to take out the unsightly wrinkles. They should not have been put in and I will not go back to him.

Awesome doctor. I went to him for reconstruction after a double mastectomy. He took his time and explained everything to me. However, due to several infections, which he addressed immediately, I choose not to reconstruct. He was very understanding. I would recommend him.

I have had many cosmetic surgeries from Dr. Shastri and I look as natural as the first time I walked in his door - only younger and better! You never have to worry about having a surgery that looks like you had surgery!
