MY PERSONAL REVIEW
 

 

I have not had work done by this surgeon but had 2 separate consulations with this Dr, spaced a couple of years apart. The first consultation he told me I would need a chin implant, along with the facelift. I went away and thought about it for a couple of years, and at the second consultation, intending to take the surgery forward, no mention was made of chin augmentation, and was told that "people with weak chins are less than happy with facelifts". I wondered why no mention was made of the chin augmentaion initially mentioned? He also tried to sell me a kind of "buy one, get the second cheaper" combo of breast augmentation and facelift. Considering that I have some health issues where even one surgery would be tricky and traumatic, I was a bit taken aback that he would suggest this. (I did ask about the breast surgery, he didn't broach the subject.)

I was also kind of shocked to hear him say, that women in porn go for over-sized breasts, and as I was doing escort work at the time, I should go quite big (that "out of proportion" look). I am small-framed, and large implants would look weird. When I asked about nipple desensitisation, he said that this is compensated for usually by the woman liking her breasts played with more. Also at the second consultation, mention was made of fat transfer, and when I asked if this was a permanent effect ie, no maintenance top-ups, I was assured that it was!! I also felt the second consultation was kind of rushed. Surgery is not a decision to rush into, especially a double surgery. I have now been put off ever having surgery, as this surgeon is supposed to be one of the best but something just didn't ring true at the consulation phase.
