MY PERSONAL REVIEW
 

 

one of the strangest encounters with a plastic surgeon I've ever had! I went in for a 2nd consult. I have poor results from abdomen lipo and am still deciding if I want tummy tuck or to try laser lipo which tightens skin. I'm definitely once bitten twice shy right.
He starts out the consult by talking to me about my nose, which we'd also discussed at my first consult but not the reason for this 2nd consult. I let him know that I probably wouldn't be using him for my rhino. He was visibly upset. He stated that he does many revision rhino's and that I could "go to LA for revision rhino and then [he] could fix it"!!! He also falsely stated that he "doesn't advertise and [all his] business is word of mouth." Well, he does advertise. I found him from an online ad!!If you've been on any of these plastic surgery websites, he's on all of them www.smithsurgery.com
At the end, he starts talking to me about intuition and faith and god. I started getting the impression that I made him feel uncomfortable and he's trying to tell me something. I ask him about my nose thinking perhaps I've made a mistake and need to see more before and after pics (which they refused to show me when I arrived).
His office assistant, Cameron, shoed me out of the office saying she'd call me, which she never did.
I don't know exactly what I said or did to offend this business so much.... I sent a card applogizing if I offended him.
About a week later, I got a letter from him stating that his "management team" had decided that they don't want to take me on as a patient! There was no reason stated.

Of course, I'm shocked and offended. His before and after pics are very good and so of course I wish he'd reconsider....However, everything happens for a reason. He and his office staff were not exactly helpful and had a lack of professionalism that appears to be unrivaled in Las Vegas.
Even the dr whom I got poor results with didn't treat me like that!!

Like I said, his before and after pics are above average...but mind your p's and q's, because fickle is probably his middle name.
