Awful. The doctor graduated from a good school and had lots of impressive credentials that I let myself be wowed by. Unfortunately plastic surgery is not a well developed credential of his. I am extremely unhappy with the results. He inserted the cannulla into untreated areas, casuing me a great deal of pain on the operating table. I believe that he damaged my muscle tissue as well due to the swelling and burning pain I am feeling. I will be seeing another physician to have this evaluated.
The nurse was wearing plain clothes and lots of jewelry in the "operating" room. Very unprofessional both in demeanour, appearance, and attitude. I took two codeine and two valium, as directed one hour in advance of the procedure. I have a memory of the doctor flashing the signed agreement in front of me and showing me a change he had made to it directly prior to the procedure. Would have been nice had he seen fit to do so when I was not drugged up.
Overall I have experienced a great deal of pain and discomfort as a result of this procedure. I paid a great deal and after all that I underwent I am extremely unhappy particularly in light of the fact that I seem to be developing long-term complications as a result of his treatment.
I had Smart Lipo on my abdomen 3.5 weeks ago. The (3X board certified, but not in plastic surgery) doctor told me it would be easy--no sweat; but that was not true. He did not return my calls over the weekend and I became grossly swollen. There are several very noticeable uneven areas and now a lump that I think is a hernia has developed over my belly button. Also he missed some spots. It was a very expensive procedure and fixing it will be costly as well. Do I have options?
