Are you a patient of Paul Fortes, MD?
Dr. Fortes understood how to remove damaged submental skin I was trying to get rid of for a long time from another surgeon's overuse of Kenalog and he did succeed in that effort, however he wanted to treat adjacent iatrogenic lumps on either side of the scar with Kenalog. It was obvious to me, and others, that a true aesthetic result was still not achieved but he couldn't see it. I've yet to understand cosmetic surgeons who hold back on providing the best possible result when they're treating you after someone else's poor work. I gave him the benefit of the doubt and let him try my first Sculptra treatment to build up the left side of my jawline and face but what I really wanted was my lumpy chin scar corrected! So other than Dr. Fortes' unwarranted belief in Kenalog, to treat iatrogenic subcutanous lumps, I would say he's an excellent surgeon. But HE ended up pushing me out of his practice because of disagreement over lump removals! Fortunately, with the help of reviews from Real Self, I found the subcutaneous excisional work I needed and my next Sculptra treatments were received elsewhere; I ended up getting rid of two granulomas under the chin and beautifully symmetrical in the face which you can find out how in my other posts.
Dr. Fortes and his staff have made me feel very comfortable so far.
I sought out many different plastic surgeons and went to many consults before making my decision and I really liked Dr Fortes attitude and his realistic approach. I had a tummy tuck with Dr Fortes and he ROCKS!! He is very thorough when it comes to satisfying his patients and always lets you know up front what you can expect. I would definetely recommend him as a plastic surgeon because he really is an artist when it comes to body contouring and tummy tucks. Rock ON DR FORTES!!
