Procedure(s) I had done:   None


I had a forehead lift, liposuction, and a lower bleopharoplasty. The forehead lift had to be redone. After the first one, he told me how good I looked. I told him that I could not tell a difference. He then examined my scalp and told me the endotynes he used had fallen.

He literally told me that I could push up my forehead. I told him I did pay for a forehead lift to have to do that. I still don't know what he meant.

He agreed to redo the surgery. Unfortunately, I still cannot tell a difference. He told me there would be incisions on the side and top of my scalp. He only did one new incision and did little to decreae the creases in my forehead. Also, he left two indentions in my scalp because of the way he sewed up the incisions.

The lower eyelid surgery shows little improvement and left visible scars.

I went back for help, and he essentially told me to get a second opinion, which I did, and from his colleague. His colleague agreed with everything I wrote here.

The thing is...it's not negligence. For example, he sewed up my scalp in a way that isn't wrong...it's just not the best way.

The lipo went fine, but my other procedures with Hultman were a BIG waste of time and money.
