"I got a breast augmentation from the “Boob God” January 21, 2022. At 2 weeks post op I reached out to my coordinator, Karina Ruiz, to ask about the pain and discomfort I was still experiencing. She told me it was normal and to wait until 6 weeks post op at least for the pain to be gone. At 4 and a half weeks I reached out again because the pain became unbearable and my right areola was sinking in more and more. Karina once again told me to wait until 6 weeks because I was “still in the early healing stages”. I made an appointment to come in at 6 weeks just to be told by Hochstein that he doesn’t see anything wrong. He told me it was impossible for me to have an infection. I voiced my concerns because my younger sister was suppose to get her boobs done by him too on April 1st and I didn’t want go through the same thing, to which Hochstein responded with “then let’s pay not do it”. Luckily I got my deposit for her back but I expected more compassion and empathy from someone that refers to ...
himself as the “Boob God”. I suffered for two more weeks then these bruise like red markings appeared on my left breast. At this point my left boob is visibly more swollen, my incisions are red, and I’m still in excruciating pain. I emailed Karina pictures and she said I still had no signs of infection. I went to urgent care because my physical therapist told me she believes I have an infection and didn’t want me to sit around waiting when something is clearly wrong. I was prescribed topical and oral antibiotics for 10 days because I indeed did have an infection. The antibiotics brought down the swelling in my left boob so you can now clearly see that it’s deformed. The topical antibiotics were able to help my right areola come back out. I emailed Karina again after finishing my antibiotics on April 23 with pictures of the bruises getting worse, pleading with her to be examined to make sure everything’s okay, to which she responded with “There was no infection. It was always a bruise. This bruising is not from the surgery but there must have been some recent trauma in the last month that has caused it so my suggestion is to limit activity so they can heal” and to wait until 6 months post op. I’ve been in bed for 18+ hours a day for months so it’s impossible for me to cause trauma to one boobs and not know. My mom took off work on April 26 so she could take me to Hochstein’s office and demand that I be seen. He finally came in and told me all the things I’ve been telling him I’m concerned about: the skin is getting very thin, this is very dangerous, somethings gone terribly wrong. At first he recommended that I have them both removed because he doesn’t know what’s wrong, then he says “it looks like you’re trying to develop a contracture”. He then told me I had to get both implants removed immediately because if I wait a couple more days the implant would burst through my chest skin, all within 3 minutes of the examination. He said to wait at least 2 months after the explant to put new ones in since my implants are lifetime guaranteed. He then emailed me 2 weeks after my explant to say he isn’t comfortable redoing my implants and I won’t be getting a refund. I’ve been a fitness model since 2018. Getting boobs was going to triple my income, at the very least. I haven’t been able to work or really workout since I got the implants. I paid $7300 for the “safest and most comfortable care” but I ended up with boobs that don’t even look like they should be next to each other. I need more surgery to fix the damages but I’ve lost over $50K the last 4 months from not working and have another 6 months to go. I took a star away for the lack of bed side manners and accountability, false advertisement, and horrendous results. The mental and physical damage will take months to years, and lot of money to fix.
