Worst Eyelid Surgery Ever - Doctor David Schlessinger from Woodbury, NY

I don't know How Even Start A very Nice Doctor...

I don't know How Even Start
A very Nice Doctor Recommend Him, Me & My Husband went to see him, He is The Type of Person that seems very Narcissistic, Yelling and Cursing The Employers in front of Patients. Anyway I was so in Rush to Get My Droopy Eyelid, He sent an Eye Drops for 2 weeks I took it and Then I was Back those Drops fixed nothing, He examined me and Schedule the surgery, everytime me and my husband went to see him always treating bad the employers and cursing them, always made us wait to finally come in rush to give us information and then leave so quick, he was the type of doctor that was extremely dry and cold, i don't know how to explain, but like i said a very nice doctor we know for long time recommend him and said his was was very good, I was tired to be fighting with my Droopy Eyelid, Some Days they were really irritated and i always was looking like tired and it was bother me to see sometimes, it was medical, rainy days my left droopy eye was blurry. Anyway he made my surgery but before he told me he only need to remove the skin excess and that's it, My eyes will be both even, Hopefully you can see the Pics Before & After, When I woke up of the surgery is was gone, He sent somebody to tell me need to see him in a couples of days, after 7 days we went to see him, he examined me again and then i had to be back again around 10 days to remove the stitches, Obviously He did that while he was yelling one of his employer again, I came home and go to see to the mirror and saw He Left some Stitches which was pulling off my skin, and Then I went back to see him after a month for next check in on my left eye, still Droopy, Very Depressed I was after a Month realize still My Eye was Droopy and Big, it past 7 months already and I still have a Droopy Eyelid and It's worse than Before cause Now My Left Droopy Eyelid is Bigger, He just had to reduce the eyelid and actually created me more lid on my eye, He was bigger the fat skin excess, It's ridiculous, and Last thing I think is Crazy, My Husband told me He Double Charge us for The Surgery Twice. Please Be Careful with This Type of Doctors thinking the are the best, Seems like He can Help u but Actually he can Hurt you even more with their surgeries.Before and After Pics.Where I am Wearing The Blue Contacts is After

If he won't make this right, I think you can file a complaint here http://www.op.nysed.gov/opd/ Let us know what happens, good Luck! ~ SS

OMG, ok now with that pic I see why you are upset! What does the doctor say? I think they say to wait for 6 months to heal before a revision, and ptosis revisions are difficult, but this is unacceptable. I am so sorry you are dealing with this :( XO ~ SS

Thank you for the updated picture! Wow your blue contacts really made you look different. I am sorry we doubted you -now it is obvious. I hope you can find someone to help you. You still are beautiful though :(

Cindy is this has truly happened to you I'm really sorry and hope you get this corrected.. However the before and after pictures to me and others I believe are totally different people. You say you have contacts on but even your eyes look completely different, it's like I'm hoping that you're not using two different pictures to sabotage this doctor.

I wondered that too -sorry but usually blue contacts do not cover brown eyes that well.

This is the same person in all the pictures. Look at the tiny mole next to the left eyebrow. What a thing to say to someone.

I'm so sorry this happened to you and to think that this was done by an oculoplastic surgeon - I've always heard that they were the best to do eyelid surgery. This doctor sounds very rude and unprofessional. I hope you can get the eye corrected - there should be good help in NY for you. And if it's any consolation, youhave beautiful eyes. Thanks for letting the rest of us know to avoid him.

He needs to be deregistered and locked away with keys concreted. ABSOLUTELY disgusting. Hope you get a successful revision soon.

Hi, Thank you for your Comment, I went to his Places but according to him, he done nothing wrong, it's clearly you can't talk to this Doctor, He is very Narcissist and He won't admit he done something wrong. I also don't want put myself again in that situation, I am Suffering alot with This eyelid but I am so Afraid of Plastic Surgeon and I want nothing to do with Any Surgery.

your eyes are very beautiful but according to you the left ptosi seem to be worst than before....I have 3 procedures in 1 operation the 31 of may and my surgeon was wrong on all of 3, more than 2 month a stay close home and I go only at work, I'm depressed and disperate like you to think in more surgery but I have to do to return in a normal life, I want my face back.My surgeon treat me like a crazy and I have to pay another surgeon outside Italy that will see me on the end of September,i'm in a nightmare , I'm worry about have a new wrong revision.The plastic surgery can give you a new life but often can destroy it Prova un nuovo browser con traduzione automatica.Scarica Google ChromeIgnora Traduttore inglese italiano francese Rileva lingua italiano inglese spagnolo ho paura di avere nuovi interventi sbagliati

yes, i am sorry, i know what you exactly mean, it's horrible live with ptosis, i was very depressed before but not anymore, i am trying to be more positive about it, i definitely don't want anymore surgeries, now i am thinking about botox injections cause it seems like elevate the muscles on the eyes area, these doctors are just money and fix nothing , ptosis continue there, what i do its apply make up and alot white eyeliner to give the illusion of bigger eyes, good luck
