Procedure(s) I had done:   None


I underwent a revision facelift, upper and lower blephroplasties with Dr. Eppley in 2001. The injurious results were immediate, severe and have, over the course of 6 years, progressed to a life threatening condition.

In spite of pre operative communication with Dr. Eppley during which he assured me he understood my concerns and all research material we reviewed together, he performed my operation in a manner in which I never would have consented. Dr. Eppley violated every aspect of trust upon which I based choosing him for my surgery.

Dr. Eppley refused to see me when the seriousness of my condition continued to progress after several months. I have irrefutable written evidence that his office staff discussed my case with another patient in the most slanderous manner.

The operative report falsely indicates the name of a board certified anesthesiologist whom, upon my written inquiry, responded that he was not present for my surgery. Medical records falsely state that a nurse was present when I awoke from anesthesia. In truth, I awoke unattended, unable to breathe or move. This is the closest I ever came to dying. My medical record for this post operative period are blank, and then resume 15 minutes later.

A full account, complete with numerous photos, diagnostic results and medical records indicating this surgery caused my inability to breathe, swallow, close my jaw and extend my neck can be viewed on my website:

I would never recommend Dr. Eppley to anyone needing plastic surgery as my experience with him was extremely negative and directly responsible for the destruction of my former good health.
