Ratings for Dr. W.L. Wuest
I gave a 1 because he has an incredible staff! They are helpful and always available if you have questions. My procedure was a failure. Initially, I came to him for a breast lift. He suggested implants with the lift to fill up the space in the upper breast that a lift can't remedy. I thought about it and decided to go with his recommendation. After the procedure, I was thrilled...for a couple of weeks. As my breasts began to drop, they began to sag. By 6 weeks post-op, they were in exactly the same place as when I started. Yes, they were fuller. Yes, my nipples looked better because of their new placement. But the fact is, I have NO lift. I went back to him to talk about my concerns. The staff member that took me to the exam room, looked at the pictures and said she thought I needed a revision to my lift. I met with Dr. Wuest, explained my concerns, and showed him that compared to my before and after pictures - my breasts were not lifted. He became very angry. He told me that there was nothing I could do because of the weight. I asked him if taking more skin off would help and he said no. He was very combative, rude, and made it clear that he did not think there was more he could do to fix them. I asked him if I could get a credit to go to another surgeon and he said no and walked out of the room. His staff member apologized and told me he "isn't good with people." I was devastated. After wanting a lift for almost 20 years, and going into debt to get it, it is very upsetting to look in the mirror and still see sagging breasts. I would never recommend this surgeon or ever go back to him.
Dr Wuest and his staff are very caring and kind. He completely repaired a friend's beautiful child who was injured in a very ruinous, high fall. He went out of his way to explain how to repair my child's scar done as railroad tracks from the local hospital. And this notebooks are filled with his excellent before and after work. Thanks Dr. Wuest!
Dr. Wuest did a wonderful job on my lift and implants. I like how he is straight to the point, and that's why I'm going back for my tummy tuck. I highly recommend him. The staff is awesome. Very nice ladies. I like how the staff are not like in the magazine adds, all blonde, young women. They are real beautiful women who are just like me. They are real!
I went to him for botox and I plan to go back for a facelift.. I was scared to death to get needle shots on my forehead, but he assured me that it wouldn't hurt! He was right, nothing to it! He was highly recommended by a friend who has been going to him for years! she has had several procedures done by Dr. Wuest, everything turned out great! She is very happy with him and so am I!!
Dr. Wuest did my implants in 1997. They were great. No complications and no problems with contractures. Dr. Wuest is to the point, honest, and even told me I shouldn't go the size I originally wanted to because I was to tiny and he would have to make a pocket that would increase complications and infections...and in the end not look that great for my size/frame. He was right of course. Now 13 years later, I am going back to him for an exchange to silicone. Even though they say the shelf life on implants are only 10 years, these would have lasted much longer. If I had not had two more kids who I breast fed, I wouldn't even being doing it now! He cautioned me again and told me the size he thought he could get them without complications and contractures...or extra cutting, which leads to potential problems. The man is a true surgeon!
Breast Augementation 6/8/07.. Dr. Wuest is not the flashy, all smiles, tell you what you want to hear doctor that most plastic surgeons seem to be. He is an awesome surgeon, period. His staff is great and his work speaks for itself. I highly recommend him and will definately use him again!!!
