Disaster Surgery Performed by Dr M. Vincent Makhlouf - Desplanes, IL

Dr M. Vincent Makhlouf did this disaster surgery,...

Dr M. Vincent Makhlouf did this disaster surgery, at Holly Family Hospital on August 5th, 2011. Like they say, a pictures says more than 1000 words. He left me deformed. He thinks he did nothing wrong, but my opinion and the opinion of all the doctors that have seen me, its that he has done malpractice. Be careful before you have a procedure done by him. I paid him to do this!

Chicago Plastic Surgeon

This is the horrific surgery Dr. M Vincent Makhlof performed on me on august 5th 2011, at Holly Family hospital in Desplaines, Illinois. He thinks he did nothing wrong! This doctor has given me the biggest pain and deformation I ever thought I would have in my whole life! He should feel ashamed of such horrible job. A plastic surgeon should improve an appearance not deform, as he has done to me.

I understand where you are coming , unfortunately I went through something similar but for rhinoplasty , I now have a crooked nosed that tilts to the right . In order for me to fix the mistake he made I would have to pay all over again .

the saddest part is, when I look him up, all I see if 5 stars. YOU need to put a review on those sites. YOU need to show your photos.. Because others cannot be warned if you dont.

How could this happen? How could it have been avoided if he had creditials ? Did you ever see his work? I'm so sorry for you. I'm currently looking for a dr. I think I have one but I wonder how do I know??

Queenbmama~ unfortunately credentials do not guarantee that this sort of thing won't happen. In fact credentialed people tend to protect each other when it does. I know you didn't ask me; but I would say that I'm not sure how you know who is a good doctor. In fact I am thinking that the only protection is to have a legal contract and/or consent form that advocates for one's own rights and protections, not the doctors.

Hi sizzorgirl I believe the doctor had posted on this thread but maybe it has been removed. That seems to be an acknowledgement that he operated on her. Also you have had some bad results you were concerned about on your profile so it does happen and I think that is the point about being board certified doesn't guarantee you will be okay. Obviously we don't know the details of this, but it's pretty shocking and must be very painful; she didn't do it to herself, that's for sure!

I feel that the only real protection is to not have risky procedures done at all. A consent form is for the doctor's protection, and even legal protection doesn't guarantee a doctor won't be negligent. If a procedure needs to be done, I would bring a loved one in to consultations, record consultations, get a copy of records that plots out the operation in written detail, and make sure to find a doctor you like personally and feel you can trust your life with. Doctors can give their online reputations a makeover, and photos they show you may not be long-term photos. The doctors and their boards seem to mislead people (including the media) that certain credentials are some kind of lock-down of wisdom, ethics, and protections. I am aware of many patients whose bodies and health were destroyed due to board certified doctors.
