Getting this surgery is the biggest regret of my life. I had surgery on my upper and lower eyelids. During my consultation, I expressed I did not want my almond shaped eyes to change. He promised me that they wouldn't and that I would have no scarring. The outcome was horrific!
I had huge round eyes, like saucers, with scarring above and below both eyes. He placed the incisions well above the natural crease of my eyes and flared them up to my eyebrows. This was extremely visible even a year after surgery. He left scars under my eyes that makeup cannot cover.
This incompetent doctor left fat pads in the corner of my eyes; he never removed them which was part of the surgery.
My eyes were no longer symmetrical. One eye was pulled down at the corner; this made my eye look "sad."
It was pulled so much that I couldn't keep the water out of my eye in the shower.
I went to two other plastic surgeons for second opinions. They agreed his work was really bad. One doctor thought the scarring left behind was "Peculiar." The doctor couldn't understand why Jacono left the fat pads in the corner of my eyes. He wanted to pick up my pulled eye to make it look natural.
All I wanted was to feel refreshed. Instead, I felt a lot of pain after surgery that lasted a long time.

My Doctor: Join to view doctor's name
I wish I chose a doctor that was recommended to me by someone I knew. Instead, I read Jacono's advertisement and saw that he called himself, "The Redo Doctor." This is true, I had to get my eyes redone by another plastic surgeon that came highly recommended to me by someone I know. I found that Dr. Jacono says anything you want to hear just to get your money. If you are dissatisfied after surgery, well now you're dealing with a different doctor. One that truly doesn't care about his patients, just his pockets. I would never recommend this Dr. Jacono to anyone. I learned my lesson, never chose a doctor that needs to advertise. Choose one that comes highly recommended by real people. The surgeon that fixed Jacono's botched job was able to cut out my scars and give me my almond shaped eyes back. This surgeon does not advertise. He doesn't have to. He's that good.
