Dr. Morris Ritz is a Melbourne Plastic/Cosmetic surgeon who has all the extra years training in plastic/reconstructive surgery which leads many people to think that he is safe. HOWEVER, he is not. I experienced him as very blase- he seemed to have an oversupply of patients. I think he is greedy and insincere. I found out recently, by reading an article in our newsppapers that he caused a young mother of five to lose her breast. She also developed permanent scaring and severe depression. She was encouraged to stop breast feeding her youngest so that she could have the surgery!! She developed severe depression that has never gone away. This was described by a leading lawyer as the worst case of plastic/cosmetic malpractice she had ever seen. I matched the article to Dr. Morris Ritz when I saw his name listed at the Supreme Court of VIctoria as a trial. Everything the woman said was true--- He doesn't explain the things that might go wrong; He makes it all sound more simple than it is; he underestimates for you the pain you'll be in afterwards, and in my case he said I'd be back at work in a couple of weeks which was FAR FAR from the truth. He wasn't there for this poor woman afterwards, and a NURSE had to summon another doctor to send her to the emergency department of another hospital. Thankfully, I was not disfigured as this woman was, but I was in SO MUCH PAIN and was NOT TOLD about this in advance. He just wants to make it all sound so easy and doesn't tell you the facts, or the possible things that might go wrong--- WHY??? BECAUSE HE WANTS YOUR MONEY !!! BEWARE !!!
