terrible and awful results for filler and more - Beverly Hills, CA

I don't chose people I go to lightly usully but was traveling through LA and did only some quick research this time. Doing anything to your face can be scary. The worst however is when you feel you look scary with the finished products! Possibly Dr. Aharonov is good for giving someone a dimple or something like that but for the art of filler and turning back the hands of time there is just no way possible as I was left feeling swollen, unatural, disfigured and odd which never went away. It does not look natural or normal in the least and I was told probably best to wait at least 6 months to a year before trying to fix anything by a very famous doctor in the field that I then consulted with after. I now know of others from online message boards who have gone to Dr. Aharnov with similar disappointments and spent even more money. When I think of the money spent for this it makes me feel even worse. Also, I don't know how I missed it but after the fact I even read on yelp that someone wrote "this guy is a joke" and ther scary things. Do not risk yur face and be sure to see other people live and in person who have had work done by a doctr and not just in pictures! Good Luck to anyone reading and be careful!
This 'doctor' completely destroyed my life!! I went to correct hollowness in upper & lower eyelids & he injected an enormous amount of filler in the wrong area leaving me disfigured & in excruciating pain. He ignored me for 3 weeks after calling his office repeatedly telling them that I felt my nose was going to collapse - yes, he injected the side of my nose instead of the tear trough. I had to find specialists completely on my own to help me. I found a nurse & derm surgeon who helped open up my nasal passageway with dissolver from the huge clump of filler sitting right on it. Long story short, I was practically bedridden for 7 mths bc the pain around my eye was so agonizing, I could hardly open it without pain. I am now diagnosed with Trigeminal Neuralgia & vitrous detachment from the trauma he caused and taking antiseizure meds for the pain. Dr A says that's medicine and too bad that it happened to me. I can't believe how cold he can be especially since he caused this disaster. I used to be the most active & social person and now all I could do are basic menial tasks bc of the Neuralgia nevermind the mess my face still looks like.
He did my fillers for the last couple of years and he did a fantastic job with the first one..the second time i went back to him for a touch-up, just like you I had terrible results. It had been almost a year since I had the fillers for my under eye hollows and it seems like the restylane hasn't dissolved one bit...I'm debating whether to go to another ps to get it fixed (get more fillers) or get it dissolved, but fearing it might compound the problem :( On second thoughts, the latter is totally out of the question because of all the horror stories I've read in this website. So for now I'm patiently waiting it out, some say fillers last the longest under eye hollows or tear troughs..
I'm sorry you didn't get the results you expected, that is always a huge disappointment.  I'm surprised the other doctor you saw afterwards said to wait so long to correct it.  Do you think you will wait or look into dissolving it sooner?
