This surgeon seems like the perfect doctor before you get on the operating table. I had a revision facelift and thoroughly researched the possible techniques that could be used in my case. Dr. Eppley agreed to perform the procedures accordingly, right down to the use of conscious sedation and local anesthesia only. I traveled 1,000 miles from home, alone, to have this surgery because he presented himself as the most "knowledgeable" regarding my case. (5 surgeons in my area offered to do my surgery for the same fee, but were not as "personable" as he. Most likely, they were also not as deceptive.) Trouble began before the operation, as he said he could not do my operation without general anesthesia. This was just as I was being taken into the OR. From there, everything was a downward spiral to a hellish result that left me unable to lift my head, close my jaw, breathe or swallow normally. I walked into Dr. Eppley's OR in perfect health and left suffering with disabling complications that have progressed to life threatening seriousness.
