MY PERSONAL REVIEW
 

 

Palma botched my rhinoplasty. In post-op, an incompetent nurse actually fractured the bridge of my nose when she unintentionally back-handed me in the face. Palma was informed but refused to attend to me as he was too busy packing for his vacation commencing the next day. He also performed procedures that he never discussed with me that have left me with permanent facial damage. The result is disastrous and when I confronted Palma about his negligence, he tried to convince me that I needed psych service. I have since seen far better surgeons to have the damage repaired and all have told me the damage is so extensive, there is nothing that can be done. Please, if you are considering any type of plastic or reconstructive surgery, run far from this butcher.
