Dr. Jon Wilensky performed my breast augmentation and after several painful complications, refuses to fix me or pay to have somebody fix me. San Diego, California
Dr. Jon Wilensky performed my breast augmentation in January of 2009. A few months after my surgery, I started to realize my implants didn't look or feel (internally) normal. They were far apart (as time goes on, they become further apart) and every time I laid on my back the implants would slip into the arm pit of the corresponding side. At first it was only about half of the implant that would fall into my arm pit, but as time progressed, it became the entire implant. As time went on, this started to become painful, as if it was straining a muscle. It's not just when I lay on my back; if I lay on my side, or bend over to pick something up, my implants will lay literally on my collerbone. They're all over the place and this makes it VERY uncomfortable when trying to sleep or lay down. After ignoring this for a couple of months, I finally decided to see a new doctor to get his opinion. He said that my pockets were way too big for the implants and that is why there kept slipping out. He said I would need a pocket revision. He also advised me of a breast deformity that I had called Tubulor Breast Deformity. Dr. Wilensky never mentioned this or gave me any indication that I in fact had this deformity. The new doctor said because of my deformity, he would have went about the surgery completely different which would have given me the result I needed. After speaking with him, I decided to make a phone appointment with Dr. Wilenksy. I explained to him the situation and after an irritated and defensive 15 minutes on the phone, he said he'd be willing to correct me and waive all charges, or contribute $2,000 to a new physician. I decided to drive down to San Diego from Riverside so he could look at me, assuming I would be scheduling a surgery date to fix me. After explaining my complications and the pain I was experiencing, he said he changed his mind and that he didn't want to do the surgery, however, he would still pay $2,000 to a new physician. During our meeting, in my opinion, Dr. Wilensky was arrogant, very defensive, immature, unprofessional, and down right rude. It wasn't the same doctor I knew before and I had never seen this side of him. As a doctor, I think he should have genuine concern for his patients, and if one tells him they're in pain because of something he did wrong, he should agree to either fix it, or pay in FULL to have somebody else do the revision. I still have not had the revision surgery, as I can't afford it, and am still dealing with the pain.
