Did you get any procedure(s) done by this doctor?   Yes
Date of your procedure(s):   October 9, 2007
Procedure(s) I had done:   None


I was pleased with pre-op and thought Dr. Franco was very nice. However I was not informed as to how extensive the surgery would be. I was left with a scar under my chin over an inch long from lipo that is ugly and I still have excess fat. The jowels are good so far. I have been in touch with their office several times as to a nasty infection behind my left ear.. now healed, and protruding sutures in front of my ears and behind (of which my husband removed). Each time I had a tech call me back with little support and never have I seen the MD since.
I had been instructed to start using the Mederma cream prior to wound healing which is contraindicated. I'm a nurse myself and luckily educated enough to take care of the infection with antibiotics and TAO. I'm disappointed with the MD and wouldn't recommend him. I plan to have a consult with another plastic surgeon to have my chin revised.
