MY PERSONAL REVIEW
 

 

He ruined my face, put my boobs in the wrong place and scammed my insurance company for thousands$$$!!

He sheered off the end of my nose!
AND...apparently he cauterized a major blood supply to the end of my nose

He also broke the bone in the bridge of my nose in the wrong place (other subsequent doctors have told me so) which caused the side of my nose to now be visibly collapsed.

I went back for my 5 day check-up and he asked his assistant/bimbo he was screwing: "where is her cast" apparently he forgot to put a cast on my nose which, isn't that standard for my type of procedure? Where was he during my operation?
______________
I asked to be a bigger cup size for a second breast augmentation (first not by him) & now I'm a whole cup size smaller than before I stepped into his office! The implants are in the wrong place which makes my cleavage 1.5" off center. They are misshaped and deformed looking. One reason is because he severed my pectoral muscle! As he was taking my bandages off he kept saying: "Oooo they look like Playboy breasts". Please... I've got the before & after pictures to prove the botch!

He took my drains for my breasts out on the 5th day after my surgeries. As he did it it hurt like nothing I'd ever experienced. I was screaming bloody murder the entire building could hear me! Now... the whole left side of my torso is numb because of nerve damage.

He overcharged my insurance company $19,000 which included unnecessary tests by his cronies who were obviously in on scamming together.

Yes I did go back to him to explain my dissatisfaction. He didn't have the answers that made me feel confident that he could correct the mistakes. If he botched a 'virgin' nose, I'm not confident that he could fix it in a now more fragile state. I've learned through research and many reconstructive surgeons' consultations that fixing mistakes is exponentially more difficult.
He said there was nothing he would do to fix my breasts. I could tell that something was up when he exclaimed "this is why I'm never doing breasts again, It's not worth it". Hmmm... His reprimand still haunts him (check his record in Connecticut).

I've since spent over $30,000 on my nose alone trying to fix his mistakes. My nose is only slightly better after 3 surgeries because there was not much of a nose to work with for reconstruction. I haven't had any attempts at fixing my breasts. I think my spirit and pocket book are broken.

It is very traumatic to go through such surgeries. You get your hopes up. You save your money... and to come out disfigured.... I still won't have my picture taken or wear a bikini top.

I interviewed other surgeons before Dr. Ordon. In hindsight, he came off too smooth and talked a fast game, he seemed easy to trust.

I'm grateful I've had this platform to finally share my ordeal.
