MY PERSONAL REVIEW
 

 

My face lift was done 2 years ago. Although I do look different and have somewhat fair results, it isn't lasting. The doctor told me it should last 10 years. Not so....not even 2 years. I already need my eyes done again and my double chin was never really smooth so it needs to be redone. The tummy tuck was nothing more than a cut from hip to hip, skin stretched together stitched and cut. Therefore I have one spot on my belly that is flat and the rest is very fat. He told me if I needed a "complete" tummy tuck he would do it, otherwise he would just do the cut. I paid for a complete,got a partial,....no refund! The brow lift let a big gap in my scalp. It seems as if the skin did not hold to the top side and is stretching down. No papers were given to me prior to the sugery to read the "contract". I even ask if I could sign papers prior to the surgery to save time and was told that was done the day of surgery. I went in for my surgery at 6am, scared, nervous, and not prepared to read a contract, so I was told to sign and pay. The contract did not have any clause for corrections. If you don't like what you get you have to pay for fixing it, even if it was his mistake. I think that is so wrong. I went in for a check up about 6 weeks after surgery and ask to have my tummy tuck done correctly, my under chin smoothed out and he wanted to charge me $5K to do this. He should have fixed it for nothing. He is a money hungry doctor who is so out of the loop, he doesn't study up on the latest techniques. His idea of a complete tummy tuck was tucking skin under the belly button together, cut it, and done. Then pulling skin above belly button up under breasts, cutting, and stitching it. No belly buttong involved. I only got the skin under the belly button done so my tummy around belly button, and above is so fat. I hate it. My pants slip down to the ridge he cut under my belly button. It's very uncomfortable. Would I go back to him? NO WAY! He charges to much for what he does not do and then he wants to charge to fix what he didn't do or didn't do right. I am very displeased. He is so out of the loop though he will never go to this website to read anything, but if I can save one person from paying out the nose for nothing I hope I can!
