Big Mistake!, May 28, 2013, 12:33 pm
Reviewer: miller1940

After a facelift with this doctor, I am left with visible scars and lumps above and below my eyes. He tried to fix the lower lids with an injection but made them worse. I still have nasal-labial lines and wrinkles in my neck. I looked better prior to the surgery. In my opinion, he is an incompetent and uncaring doctor.

Horrible Doctor and Staff, April 26, 2011, 6:58 pm
Reviewer: nyac05

I would never recommend Dr. Kisner to anyone who is considering cosmetic surgery. I have known Dr. Kisner for a number of years now and he ruined my lower lids, my abdomen and flanks. I have realistic goals and expectations and I know what good cosmetic surgery looks like and Dr. Kisner is not the greatest cosmetic surgeon. Let me honestly describe my plastic surgery experience with Dr. Kisner. I had liposuction of my abdomen and flanks a few years ago. I was not overweight; I just had localized areas of fat which needed work on. The results of the surgery are a disaster. He did a revision and made it look worse. I know the body changes over time, however I exercise and eat very healthy and I maintain the same normal weight year after year. I now have indents and depressions left from this botched surgery. When I go to the beach I do not feel comfortable taking my shirt off. A year ago I decided to get a lower lid blepharoplasty done since I had bulging fat and just a bit of loose skin under my lower lids. After doing plenty of research I was going to choose one of New York cities top cosmetic surgeons instead of Dr. Kisner. I had seen dr. Kisner a couple of times before I made a decision and my gut feeling was not to have him do the surgery, but at the end I decided to choose Dr. Kisner because I could not afford NY’s top surgeon and that was the only reason why I had him do my lower lids. I was assured by Dr. Kisner that the problem areas of the lower lids would be improved. It has been a year now and I am extremely dissatisfied with the outcome of the surgery. He took too much skin away on my left lower lid and the bulging fat that was there to begin with is still there now. My lower lids look horrible. At one of my post op appointments, in a poorly lit room, in one of the presidential suites at the Waldorf Astoria Towers I told him that I was not happy with the results. He offered a “quick fix” of injecting cortisone under my lower lids. When I told him that I didn’t feel comfortable with that he became extremely hostile and unpleasant towards me and told me to see another doctor. I then told him that money does not grow on trees and I couldn’t afford to see another surgeon. 12 months post op, I saw an occuloplastic surgeon and told him that Dr. Kisner wanted to inject cortisone under my lower lids and he began to laugh. I have written and federal expressed Dr. Kisner a letter 5 months ago and I never received a response back. In addition a couple of his staff members, particularly one by the name of Kathy was rude, unprofessional and unpleasant. When I told her that I was not happy with the surgery she obnoxiously responded by telling me it was a scalpel Dr. Kisner used and not a magic wand. What is very difficult for me is that it took me years to save up for the surgery and I should have listened to my gut feeling and decided to go with another surgeon, one that was very skillful and that had a pleasant staff. There is a fine line between being conservative, ultra conservative not skillful enough and Lazy. Also do not let his once a month posh presidential suite at the waldorf towers fool you. Throughout the years Dr. Kisner has proved to me that he is just a purely lazy, non caring and non skillful plastic surgeon. One of the worst cosmetic surgeons. I have lost all trust in this awful lazy surgeon. Anyway I don’t blame him, I blame myself for choosing Dr. Kisner to do the botched surgeries and I will never recommend him to anyone.

I Can't Imagine a More Rewarding Cosmetic Surgery Experience, March 12, 2010, 12:31 pm
Reviewer: loiswstern

I have interviewed many medical professionals and patients of Dr. Kisner. The words that repeatedly come back to me speak in terms of his "artistry" and his reputation as an "exceptionally nice person". I can attest to both! When I wrote my book, Sex, Lies and Cosmetic Surgery, I introduced each chapter with the image of a good fairy holding a magic wand. That is exactly how I felt after having cosmetic surgery with Dr. Kisner. Most every one of his patients expresses feel similar thoughts.

Yes, I do sometimes have to wait for my scheduled appointments, but I know this in advance and bring along a good book or chat with one of his friendly staff members. I understand that he has a very active practice and might just fall behind in his schedule, but know that when my turn comes, he will give me his full attention. Dr. Kisner is definitely worth the wait.
