Did you get any procedure(s) done by this doctor?   Yes
Date of your procedure(s):   February 7, 2008
Procedure(s) I had done:   None


I had a sliding genioplasty. I had a very weak chin- particularly noticeable in profile. Dr. Cheney was the only surgeon who was against chin implants, a procedure that I was uncomfortable about. He had a good reputation and seemed very confident about this procedure (the details are truly gruesome).
For the first 2 years or so i was very satisfied with the results but wished there was a way to make my chin a little more pronounced. During these post SG appointments I was also considering a mini face lift. So glad i never had the chance. An acquaintance had been dissatisfied with her results. Also, there were certain intangible signs of something being "off". I did a lot of research and discovered that Cheney had been disciplined a couple of times and put on probation due to (I read this) a drinking problem when working with patients. The end of this story is that appox. 2 years ago he lost his license. I have to say that i felt very sorry for him. He was known to spend a month every year in a poor, 3rd world country doing reconstuctive surgery on children with cleft palette- for free. The guy obviously had a good heart...
