I had a revisional facelift to even out some scar tissue and also wanted a mild upper bleph for a bit of extra skin making my upper eyes hooded. Mr. Waterhouse persuaded me that an endow brow would be better and that he would only elevate the outer third of my brows. I told him my brows were high enough but he convinced me that it would be much better as I wouldn't get the bunching of an upper bleph.
I ended up with assymetrical cheeks. I also ended up with eyebrows extremely high, completely assymetrical (as though two different surgeons took part) and the mid and inner part of the brow elevated too. I was devastated. I went back to discuss and he got angry and basically didn't want to know. He wanted to charge me for trying Botox to correct the brows and he got me to sign another disclaimer with added type saying 'I will not harm or sue my surgeon'. This extra line was in a different font and took a good 15 minutes to appear for signing. He glared at me and said "well if you're going to blame me". I've since had NHS help to correct the problem but it's still not right and probably never will be again. Not only did he carry out something that we had not agreed to, but his attitude afterwards was appalling. I haven't finished with him yet - he should be struck off despite all his good marketing. Be warned - don't go anywhere near him.
