Dr Alan Kingdon. Stepping into this "doctor's"...
- 23 Jan 2013
Dr Alan Kingdon. Stepping into this "doctor's" office is a move I regret every second of every minute of every day. Literally. My life has completely been turned upside down and my looks will never be restored. My social life, confidence and basic love of life have been replaced by alternating feelings of rage, guilt and regret. I NEVER leave my house unless I have to anymore.
I once enjoyed an extremely fulfilling social life. I was actually almost overconfident regarding my appearance. But after a death in my family and subsequent depression I suddenly gained weight very rapidly. Betraying my lifestyle of health and fitness I sought results through cosmetic surgery. My very sharp and pronounced chin looked great at my normal body weight. But during this period of weight gain it did look a bit too sharp and unsightly. The doctor said he could take out the fat around the neck.. The "double chin" area. And also make the chin "appear" less upturned.
How many nights I've laid awake wishing I could be Sitting in that "doctor"'s chair.. again.. In my fantasies I would just run out there and then. Before he all but sucked out my chin and cheeks completely. "Nothing drastic" I kept reminding him. As a surgeon, it should be obvious that "less is more" and only fractions of a millimetre are all that are needed to alter the natural flowing angles and contours of one's face.
Dr. Alan Kingdon, like a toddler with sharp objects does not have this realisation. He eagerly went to work and took out the chin from every Which angle. It is now all but sucked out completely. And terrible gouges/scars under the chin as well as extreme saggy-ness where the fat was removed that cannot possibly be the result of 2 years of ageing.
After a total of 1 email expressing my dissatisfaction, and being allowed zero conversations with the doctor himself despite my many attempts (though thoroughly humiliated and yelled at by his clinical director Wendy) his office has blocked my emails and does not accept my phone calls. He did inform me in his Very brief and conclusive letter that the changes I've noticed hv nothing to do with the procedure and are the natural effects of ageing. (2-3yrs in the pix) Pls see for yourselves and let me know.
Due to lack of response or interest on the part of the doctor or his clinic, I have no choice but to inform everyone this way. Below photos are alternating before, after, before, after...
Rating is zero. If there is a lower rating. Pls inform me. I chose this doctor without doing the proper research. This was a huge mistake on my part. If this review can save anyone else then at least I have that.
