I had a Lifestyle Lift with Dr. Ishoo in Waltham, MA in Dec of 2007. As per the LSL “script”, this Dr. was most comforting and assuring prior to my “revolutionary procedure.” He called me when I wanted to cancel my surgery with concerns that he was not Board Certified to do facelifts, and assured me that he had more experience in his ENT internship than plastic surgeons.
He then assured me that the “cocktail” he would give me would make me sleep and that I wouldn’t feel anything. He told me he would make “two small incisions in front of my ears”, etc..NONE OF WHICH WAS TRUE.
Fact is, he didn’t seem concerned that I WAS AWAKE, sobbing and in pain throughout the first hour and 15 mins of my procedure. In fact, he seemed very aggravated by my crying and saying that I was in pain and that I was still awake when he said I would be asleep. I NEVER SAW HIM AT MY FOLLOW UP APPOINTMENT. There was an inexperienced tech.
