MY PERSONAL REVIEW
 

 

I met Dr. Magilke when he was an Ear Nose throat specialist. when he changed his practice to facial plastic surgery I spoke to him about my jowls and sagging neck. He said a facelift would take care of these problem areas. I didn't expect to look 30 again but was willing to go through the surgery and spend nearly $10,000 to look better. Unfortunately, a month or two after surgery it was clear that there was no improvement in my neck or jowls. Dr. Magilke told me to give it a few more months and once the healing process was complete I'd see the true results. Several more months past and still no improvement. My family and friends were dumbfounded that I had a facelift and looked exactly the same as before the surgery. After numerous complaints to his office Dr. Magilke agreed to do another procedure. He said all I needed was a mini-lift. The second surgery was a complete waste. More time off from work and NO results. Worse yet, the surgeries left me with large permanent scars around my ears as well as disfigured earlobes. I can no longer wear earrings because they do not sit properly in my ears. I can't wear my hair pulled back or behind my ears because the scars are obvious. I am writing this review in hopes of saving others from a similar devastating experience. Choosing Dr. Magilke is a decision I will regret for the rest of my life.
