Third Time Trying... - Clearwater, FL

I went to Dr. Drehsen to fix what two other doctors didn't. I thought he was a little high$$$$ but was assured he was the best. Told the staff and doctor what I wanted out of the tummy tuck from the get go......
Day of surgery I again voiced my concerns that the surgery do what I wanted done & was told everything would be done right.
Went back for my checkups and voiced my concerns and was told to let the swelling go down & if I still had concerns we would talk to the doctor.....
Six months later still not happy and finally talked to the doctor (by the way I had fillers in my lips & cheeks that day) the only thing I got out of it was that he could take the fat(at this time he is pinching my lips just injected with fillers!!!!) & inject them into my lips. I really did not understand what was going on..... Except maybe a way to make more money off of me!!!


I called the office afterwords and told the very nice woman who I always talked to that I was not happy & if I saw my before & afters I would not use him as my doctor. She looked at my pictures & talked to me about my concerns, at this time trying to get me to agree that I looked better. I do look better but I am not fixed the way I should have been !!!!! Keep in mind this is the third surgeon who has worked on me & they were told this from the begining!!!!!!! She reminded me that I am not in my thirtys anymore, really????? I don't see what that has to do with anything seeing has how I had been shown pictures of women my age & older!!!!! Didn't see any problems with their pictures......


I am a year out & still do not look right. The doggie ears (what they called them) are still there & I look lopsided.... I do not have a waist & my hips look nothing alike.
Needless to say I would not recommened him to anyone!!!!!!
Don't know how much more I could have said or done to keep this from happening!!!!!!!
I recieved NO offer to fix this at all!!!!!!!!
Be very carefull it is their jobs (the staff) to pacify you & they are very good at it.....
