i have consulted with doctor bernadino 3 times in reference to revisional surgery to correct
a blepharoplasty performed by a cosmetic surgeon in guadalajara.
Although Dr Bernadino suggested it would be difficult to repair my upper eyelids to the heighth of normal asian anatomy at this time,that it would be best to repair the obviously
deformed lower lids.

Every day when i look at my eyes,i wish Doctor Bernadino could fix the upper lids to the height of normal asian anatomy....
I still have the huge dent in the middle of my eyebrows where the dermal fat graft is and last week,i went back to Doctor Moorwood who had filled the dent in 4 months ago successfully with restalyne to use up what was left as the dent was becoming evident once again and he used it up around and under the fat grafts making the dent more evident and then told me there was nothing he could do but he suggested botox....then told me to seek a second opinion....everyone means well.....I cant wait untill Doctor Bernadino fixes me,so i can get on with my life...

2 day is February 22nd 2013. I had my revision a look under eye surgery on the 19th of Februaryby DrCarlo Robert Bernadino.

I am not feeling any pain past the 2nd day and cant wait for the stitches to come out.i look pretty scary still,not black and blue so much now as green and yellow.and still very swollen.Doctor Bernadino called me to make sure everything was okay and to let me know if i had any questions to feel free to call.
really a nice person
ill update as time goes on

i had the stitches taken out yesterday
i still have a lot of swelling and on the sides of my eyes i have a wierd bump and a vertical line that makes my eyes look very odd.
doctor bernadino told me yesterday that everything will even out and i am hoping that is the case.
i will wait a few days before i take pictures so some of the swelling can come down

today is 3/3/2013
i am having a lot of problems with my right eye.it has only been 12 days out of lower eyelid revisional surgery with (i think) a canthopexy.
my right eye looks very strange and where he reattached the muscle it is very visible and stretches above my lower lid to the upper lid with a bump on both sides and scars.
i know the scars will fade with time.
meanwhile i wrote to Doctor Bernadino as to what to do to maybe make it better...or somehow stretch it out before it is too late

I had an appointment today with doctor Bernadino...

i had an appointment today with doctor Bernadino concerning the strange shape of my right eye and the bumps on either side of both of my eyes where the stitches were.
it has only been 3 weeks since the revisional surgery and he said that it should resolve itself within the next month.
I am still swelling and he also advised me to do tissue massage to help with the scar tissue .

Today is exactly 30 days after my revisional under...

today is exactly 30 days after my revisional under eye blepharoplasty and canthoplasty or canthoplexy(im still not sure which)with Doctor Carlo Bernadino.
I am still experiencing a lot of swelling but not as bad and my eyes still look a little strange ,bumps on both sides and the long scar on the right with the over corrected looking muscle ....im thinking with time it will get better and better and the scar will disappear and i will look wonderful.only time will tell...well here are my 1 mon th photos.it is hard to see what i am talking about with the flash and with makeup,but ill try....i no longer have the lumps under my eye though from my first surgery

I have an appointment with doctor bernidino today....

I have an appointment with doctor bernidino today. A follow up appointment. I still have the lumps on both sides of my eyes bumps underneath my eyes and a weird stretched out muscle on the right I especially. I am hoping that when I get there he will not just say do tissue massage and it will get better. I have to meet with my husband's family for Easter and I am embarrassed that it looks so strange once again. We will see what he says. My eyes look smaller it seems, and I still don't know exactly what it is he did. I will update this review when I get back after 4 o'clock this afternoon. Here is a picture of my 1 eye and the bump that it has and it did it is exactly the same on the other I also.

still have a lot of swelling on right eye
i am hoping it will go away
i am hoping for the best
it looks awful

trying to be patient and not so depressed

i hate what i have done to myself

Vantage Eye Center is a joke

i told Doctor Bernadino i would give him 6 months after the revision to see the results
and pray that the weird job he did would go away,so far it has not and my eyes look small and strange with an odd pinched look in the corners,and bags just in the corners of my eyes where the stitch was on both sides,when i went back to see him on my 3rd month,he yelled at me,told me it was my fault because i lead an active lifestyle and pretty much in a nutshell let me know that he was not responsible in any way and i was NOT to seek another revision....i was totally disgusted and upset but i am STILL trying to give the man the benefit of the doubt,i am trying to walk in HIS shoes.he is under a lot of stress,everyone makes mistakes,not everything turns out perfectly for everyone,i understand,i am human too.He works for a corporate company that probably regulates everything he does and perhaps he does not have the opportunity to rectify any procedures gone bad because of the center(Vantage Eye Center.this i dont know either.so i go see him,he does all of this,treats me like crap,then sends me a bill and charges my insurance company for(an encounter).
i am livid.this is the second one since after my surgery and i payed 4 grand out of pocket for this supposedly simple procedure.i call the billing department and she tells me that the post op visits arent covered by insurance..PAST 3 MONTHS????
WTF?this is a plastic surgeon no?i did not use insurance.
i trusted this guy and although i know he is busy and under the gun working for some big eye center it is NOT my fault and i should not have to pay the price for them being @#%$%$ up.now my 6 month post op is coming up,i dont know what to do.the center is a joke.the doctor is blameshifting and had the balls to yell at me and tell me it was MY fault????AND i am going to get charged an additional couple hundred dollars for a 2 minute post op visit???alls he would have had to do was explain his situation,an email,i would have understood.i am pretty smart and i am very compassionate.accidents happen.its not the end of the world,but
i dont know.pretty bad customer service and the center sucks...point blank...the Doctor?well i dont know...i really dont know what the dude is all about...will post 6 months pics soon

update

i am nearing my six month mark.
Dr Bernadino wrote me an apology letter stating that after his last meeting with
his employer Vantage Eye Center,that the policy of charging for post ops past 3 months be extended for a year post op.
He also assured me that if there were any problems with the initial surgery that a revision would be done free of charge.
I am going to see him next week.
and will update then

waiting for what??????

tried to make an appointment but could not get one untill the 28th of this month...
this doctor is very very busy...my 6 month review was on the 19th but i did not want to write my review before i had an appointment.
as it stands today,my review is not good.
the marks will be very low...
i will give them the benefit of the doubt and see what will be done and be a little more patient.

08/23/2013 with a lot of makeup on

will post side pictures showing fat pockets and pinching

6 month review

im not happy with the results and am definately not happy with Vantage Eye Center but i think Dr Bernadino is a nice guy and hopefully will do what he can.

6 month review

eyes have become very small and have skin bunching up on both sides of eyes
I went to see Dr Bernadino the day before yesterday for the 6 month post op..
He agreed that the size of my eyes was much smaller and told me that the skin that was nunching up causing the lumps could be corrected with another surgery scheduled on 9-23-2013....but he stated he did not want to chance trying to correct the size of my eyes or shoulkd i say the malposition of the lower lids because it may do more harm than good....i just wanted the rippling under my eyes from extra skin to go away originally.other than that i had beautiful eyes,a beautiful face....now i am afraid that this next surgery will make my eyes even smaller.....i am hoping not,but i am scared to death....here are before my first surgery with bernadino and now

forgot to add

Doctor Bernadino also suggested massage several times a day to somewhat help the scar tissue to stretch and that will help the smallness of my eyes.
it seems to be working already as a matter of fact.

Going to surgery in 1 hour to have Dr Carlo Bernadino do revision

My revisional surgery is at 12 pm.it is for a revision to the revision for under eye bleph.
I am a nervous wreck and dying for a cup of coffee,even called the surgical center to see if it would be ok since the last surgery i was not sedated and had only local anesthesia and was awake the entire time.
they said no....
i appreciate the doctor offering to do the revision free of charge but i am really worried that my eyes will be even smaller than they are already from the first revision.
He assured me in an email that the chances were slim to none....are my beautiful unique eyes forever gone now?
i like Dr Bernadino,i do...Im just nervous and afraid.....I will be out of surgery around 2pm and will update tonight and the rest of the recovery with photos...so bummed i am going to be going through recovery again.....i am hopeful and will try to be patient..
Please Dr B....dont let me down...restore my beautiful eyes

billing

so 5 MINUTES AFTER i gave a stellar review for Dr B
i recieve yet ANOTHER bill from VANTAGE EYE CENTER for a physicians visit
after i was told that post ops will now bw covered....for a year
they have billed my insurance already this going on the THIRD time....I like Dr B.but VANTAGE EYE CENTER is #$@^%$#

third day after revision 09/23/2012

pictures of third day after revision...notice the stitches on sides.
lots of bruising that will go away
great job,healing nicely

2 weeks after revision for revision

i went to see the doc yesterday for my 2 week post op
he had taken the stitches out on the prior monday
and on my way back to work i was vigorously rubbing my right eye and reopened
my incision
the doctor was kind enough to meet me at the other office,and although had a full caseload with many many patients,managed to fit me in and restitch my eye up using dis-solvable sutures.thus no 1 week pics....
i will probably have a visible scar,but not his fault..
he told me to massage daily to help break up the scar tissue....
my eyes seem a little larger,but will never be the same as they were before the revision.....
i miss being beautiful.
although my eyes do not look bad by themselves,because they are much smaller,the rest of my features look strange...my nose now seems abnormally wide,my face too long,i look so much different....
maybe it is standard procedure for a surgeon to sew up lower eyelids to smooth out the skin underneath the eyes and to prevent ectropion...i dont know,i am not a surgeon only a patient.....but for now and maybe for the rest of my life i will have to accept that i am no longer a beautiful woman.....

photos later

i have to go to a meeting but will post photos upon my return

2 weeks out photo

:]

photos from the doctors office before and after

i do not know what he did to cause my eyes to become so small and strange..
he does not tell me and let me know that he is done with me...
first he told me he did not do a canthopexy but in the records he said he did...i am asking him to own up and repair what he has done...these are photos from my records i picked up from his office.the first 2 are before he did the lower blepharoplasty for bags and the second 2are after,then another before and after..
it is not just a very small cosmetic difference,yes the bags under are gone but at what a cost.
how could a human being do such a thing and not feel responsible?
what recourse do i have?
i am so depressed and angry?
why he did not just let me know he was not ready to do this surgery or suggest i go to someone else..
how could something so simple go so wrong?
i am glad i recorded every appointment i had with him so that i would have all of my facts straight.
i am not out to hurt anyone or destroy them but i did not plan on having someone destroy me and just shrug his shoulders and tell me to go away either...and i paid him to do it..
no,im sorry or anything...unbelieveable

looking through photos from 9 months ago

i cant believe how pretty i was before i let Bernadino do my lower lid surgery....
i found a thumb drive that had hundreds of before photos on it....so bummed

help

also when i wrote him an email about it he asked me to refrain from emailing him again so i have not

shout out

just wanted to give a shout out to ,everyone following my blog....the inlaws,the steps,the exes and my friends

deposit

i also forgot to add that during the booking process i was hurried through after my second visit to the scheduling nurse who asked for a deposit IF i wanted to book a surgery,that was refundable if i changed my mind....i wrote out a check and was informed by my bank that it had been cashed the next day.
when i called to talk to the eye center about it,i was informed that this was their policy......so even though i had reservations from the beginning ,well,you know the story....

tarsal strip procedure???

i have been wracking my brain and researching what my doctor could have possibly done to my eyes during surgery and came upon some videos on youtube that ended up looking exactly like what he did to my eyes..it is called a tarsal strip procedure and it is done on elderly patients for droopy lower lids and ectropin
why he would do such a thing for someone young and attractive is beyond me....here is a pic before the stitches came out ,,,,sure looks like that is what he did.....what an injustice...no wonder he said it was not repairable .....and he still has not told me what he did exactly

12/12/2013

i have been in the process of seeing several other cosmetic and occuplastic surgeons to give me an idea of exactly what it was that my occuplastic surgeon had done,i had scheduled 2 prior after care appointments with him but cancelled because so far it has only been a waste of time as he had never been honest and forthright about what he had done and he never took responsibility.
I understand that accidents happen,he did the best he knew how,he did not expect this to turn out this way.but to destroy someones best asset cosmetically and shirk all responsibility is so very not cool....will update after the next consultation with yet another surgeon.

had my after care follow up with Dr Bernadino at Vantage eye center 12/19/2013

i had my follow up appointment with Dr Bernadino today at 9:40 am
I brought my husband as support and witness.
Dr Bernadino promised that he would finally explain what it was that he had done to my eyes to make them look so strange and freakish,sunken and hollow, if i came in person and that he did not feel comfortable explaining anything in his last email encounter.
Although at this point i absolutely did not want to see him in person,i wanted some resolution and explanation as to what may have caused such a bad result.
I would have accepted any honest answer so that i could convey it to someone else who could repair somewhat what he had done.
I recorded every visit and consultation i had with him so that i would not be in error as to what had been explained.
unfortunately,Dr Bernadino continued to deny any wrongdoing,would not accept any blame,blamed everything on everone else including my previous surgeon,told me he had done nothing to change my eye shape,completely denied he had shortened my lower lid at all.he also told me that i and my husband were fabricating bad results and he was not responsible.
He also stated that there was no change in the shape of my eyes whatsoever and still adding insult onto injury refused to explain any of the surgical procedure .
He adamantly and steadfastly denied shortening my lower lid in any way.
My husband,who is a man that does not lie or speak up for almost any reason stated that he felt terrible that he himself had vouched for this doctor and he felt responsible because he can see how badly the results turned out and then how badly i was treated AFTER my eyes were destroyed by this surgery.I was so proud of him,my husband.it took everything for him to say that.Dr Bernadino also stated that he knew all 400 something occuplastic surgeons and their children ....hopefully he will not also destroy my chances of having what was done repaired.
This man has costed me soon to be tens of thousands of dollars,my beautiful eyes,my self worth and destroyed my trust

now signs of ectropin

to add insult onto injury,i am also in addition to my eyes lloking terrible
have started to get ectropin.
thank you so much doctor for everything
posting side before and after bernadino and next week will post pics of ectropin as it progresses

what i am left to live with now

this photo was the last visit i had with my occuplastic surgeon in his office.
i took this photo myself...

1 year ago 02/19/2013

left and right eye.
doctor tells me these are successful surgeries.
thank you doctor.what a nice person you are

my drivers license right before surgery with Dr Bernadino

this is what i looked like right before Dr Carlo Rob Bernadino operated on my lower lids to reposition fat pads...he destroyed my eyes.cut my lids short,denied responsibility.he tells me he performed successful surgeries on me and he did nothing wrong.he has ruined me....i wish i could turn back time and never let him operate on me on february 19th 2013

before bernadino

right before,my drivers license

i need advice

is there anyone who can help me?

my eyes are ruined

my beautiful almond expressive one of a kind eyes have been destroyed by this surgery.how can something so simple go so wrong...and on top of ruining the shape of my eyes,this person lazered
every bit of fatty tissue from under my eyes and left me looking old and strange....wow,i was so beautiful and in a single hour this person has ruined me

for those of you that think that this doctors work was not that bad

these photos are from his office from before the lower lid work he took himself
they are of my whole face.
he laughed at me because i said it ruined my face
you be the judge

im sorry,first one is before and second one is from months after

preop postop

do not let this person touch your eyes

do not let this man touch your eyes if you are looking for an aesthetic outcome.
if it is something medical and you dont care what you look like go ahead

the reason why it looks so bad

i had a teardrop shaped inner canthal and my surgeon raised the canthal and that is what has completely ruined my eyes.i had to go to 3 other doctors just to find out what Dr Bernadino had done.had he been honest and owned up and at least told me the truth even though it looks bad,not knowing and having no answer is what really hurt me and infuriated me....now i am trying to find someone who is capable of fixing it.and he wouldnr even help me

my eyes hurt so bad

my eyes hurt so bad

it seems impossible to believe i ever looked like this 10 years ago and what a huge difference your eyes can make

look at the eyes i was so proud of.i could stop anyone in their tracks..
who would have thought such unique eyes could be just a distant memory now

i have been to see the most gifted and knowledgeable occuplastic surgeon.he has never seen a case like mine

after going to more than a dozen surgeons and specialists
i have found someone who could perhaps help me.
He is an expert in his field and basically just a really good honest talented man.
I totally trust him 100 percent.
He was completely baffled as to what Dr. Bernadino had done.
He had never in all of his years of occuplastic revisions seen anything like what has happened to me.It will cost me 11 thousand dollars to undergo surgery to see if he can repair the damage.
He was completely honest with me,because he had never seen this before it would be a very complicated procedure and i would have to be awake during the surgery to insure no muscle damage.He was asking me what this man had done and of course since Bernadino would not tell me i had no answer.
This is the only way i will have an answer and hopefully this very difficult surgery will be successful.
This is the last of my savings
I am devastated by what has happened to me and how i was treated.
I do not want to go through the rest of my life looking so strange and in pain.

I am going through the same thing. My eyes are much smaller than what they were and my PS tells me that they are perfectly fine. WOW. Please let me know how your corrective surgery turned out.

Devon54.I know it is disheartening.specially when you know how different you look to yourself.I know that surgeons are not perfect. Everyone makes mistakes.but doctors that flat out lie to your face as if it will make everything okay because they do not want to take responsibility are scum to me.I wish they just had the balls enough to say I am sorry, go to so and so , they will fix it.s*** happens. There are more talented doctors out there. Admitted

Find a good lawyer and sue the incompetent dr. What was your surgery initially for in Guadalajara? Was it an eyelid lift? Your still beautiful!
  • Reply
yes the initial surgery in Guadalajara was for an eyelift also,there was a little bumpiness left under the lower lids that i went to this occuplastic surgeon for.if he would have just repositioned the fat like he said he was going instead of playing experiment it would have been perfect

I don't think that anybody will ever get as hurt as you thru no fault of your own. This unscrupulous dr will continue to mutulate others if they are no held accountable. At the very least report him to the medical board and atty generals office.

I agree with Maria1957. It's not about hurting anyone. It's about justice and taking care of yourself. The money you receive - and you will certainly win your case -- can be used to pay for your revision.
  • Reply
Yes of course he will.he takes out and in the paper once a month at least.

I'm so sorry for what this man did to your eyes. I hope you can be compensated for the revision. Have you been able to find anyone to correct yet?

My last question on here this site made up their own question and posted it. No way I wrote bumpy empty butt. My butt isn't empty it's under my glut. I can't believe it now I don't even know if we should truse this site. Are they getting kick backs from drs maybe. Idk its weird. I wouldn't have asked if cellulaze would smooth our a lack of tissue either that's just stupid. So whoever asked my question or turned the question around up be ignorant and say empty bumpy butt is not even. Educated enough to try and change questuons around. My question. Is under the detailed area This blows my mind.

Sweets, what was the full name of Dr. Goldberg .. I'm checking around for other eye specialists to visit. Where is he located?
  • Reply
The doctors will never man up to their botched jobs and surgery without informed consent. They get away with it all the time. People think oculoplastic surgeon is eyelids expert?? Wrong! Some maybe because they received extensive training under a skill doctors for a long time while most just do a short internship and start operating on people with really no skills. Oculoplastic surgeons are mainly for eye tumors = disease of the eyes. They do not get much training in doing eyelids plastic surgery. Some are training themselves using patients and unfortunately the laws are protecting bad doctors.

you are right that is exactly what happened and yes,he did experiment on me AFTER he told me he was an EXPERT on asian eyes and that he has done many many cosmetic procedures with wonderful results.he had no idea what he was doing.i had informed him ahead of time that i was going to document this on real self,why he did not seek assistance with this surgery especially knowing this would be his debut review or at least let me know that i should go to someone else was ludicrous.i have to look at his full page ads in the local paper stating that he is an EXPERT in asian eyelid surgery.i would not be able to live with myself after ruining someones beauty or at least say im sorry and try to rectify the situation.look at what he did to the inner canthus,the canthal area is the most significantly asian area of the eyelid in an asian and he just lopped it off and pulled it up leaving me looking strange ,stole my beauty and left me with tiny wierd eyes that burn.im so sad.
  • Reply
yes,i figured that one out now. he sewed my lower lids up like he would for someone who had graves disease pulling up the medial canthal .looks so strange.why didnt he ask for help or be honest?

You need to mam up. If somebody doesn't do 5 heir job right they don't do their job right. That's why their are attorneys and Lawyers to protect or guess priest is the wrong word, because it's too late for that. So man up and do what you gotta do. I won't be taken advantage of more or treated like I'm silly. I see my face and feel silly when I look at it..I don't need to be made feel like I am too. I think fillers would help you, but how sad is that knowing every 1-2 yrs for the rest of our lives we may have to put 1000 in our face because of these negligent ppl. Makes me sick. One if my reasons for doing this waa thinking I wouldn't have to pay for as much botox and wouldn't take as long to pUT my makeup on, because the lil dry skin and lines under my eyes would be pulled out. Ha what a joke, but jokes on me. I already put 1000 more into my fave with fillers after the surgery and I put my make up on them step back n don't know who thosev eyes are in the mirror...joke is def on me. So yes, I'm seeking legal action. You don't screw up a women who needs her face to keep her house and pay her bills. I'm mad now and somebody will pay ..I'm tired of paying...1000 already this week waa enough. Ppl and sorry don't mean to be mean at all...but ppl like you that do nothing and five him chances and don't make him take responsibility are why they can still do this and will do it again today. He should be calling his surgeon friend FAR you and making you an apt. Again not being mean. I see this shit all the time with diff things. My dad had his knee ruined by a surgeon. Simple knee surgery turned into a year of pain, shortened muscles a hole in his bone and a full knee replacement that's why they pay malpractice insurance. They are human and make mistakes. Now when they act like asses and nnot humans after...that's another story. Without recourse they hurt the next person. My dad years later still has issues. Oh n swelling ...got checked he could have died from blood clots. Two are adhered to his veins causing bad circulation, my mom was a nurse thank god she knew it probably was because he was to get massage to help it...she wouldnt massage it..if she had thr clots would have broke free and caused a stroke perhaps. She sure others dI'd because of two bad days he had months ago. Scary stuff. Sorry off point...but not. Toughen up and do what u can. Life is sgort, and too short to let ppl take it away from us. I wanted better and do hit the gym..work my ass off..save up again..help my daughter with her wedding...financially and help her with school. Now I'm not working still and worried about costs for surgery again and will it even help or make me worse. I wanted to do a fitness competition. ...first one in my life. Was always told I need to compete. Now here I am....can't even focus on lifting. Yea that's not what I paid to have done to my life

in a perfect world a good person would feel responsible and do the right thing. I would do the right thing and in my job i take care of people and i am very good at it because i really really care. But i have discovered as the years go by that almost all people dont do the right thing ,and almost every person only cares about themselves at the core sadly enough. that is why the planet and eco system is in the shape it is in now. What can i do??it too took me a long time to save the money. I asked him for my money back and i asked him for help and he refused. I also asked him to tell me the truth on the exact procedure he performed on my eyes to make them look so strange and remove the beautiful epicanthal fold that made me look so exotic and beautiful....i know un expected results happen and i am forgiving and try to be understanding as crushed as i am... But i am extremely intelligent ,dont lie to me,i would not lie to you and what ever my shortcomings i am honest about it. That is why on top of really bad results,that i am livid and have absolutely no respect for the man. You burn me and lie to me,you burn everyone and lie to them... if he did call me today,apologize and helped me to find repair even though i would have to pay for it,i would be grateful and perhaps have a different view on what kind of surgeon and human being he is. I cannot see that happening.I can only hope. What do i do? Where do i go? Funny,when i first began this journey,i thought i would be done in 3 months and have the begin my goal of teaching environmentalism before it was too late. Never got my chance....

Do not let him touch your eyes again. Your are in cali aren't you. You need to find an eye revision specislist. He needs to refund you and then u can move on to search for the right person to help you.

you know,i have never ever asked a person for my money back in my life for any reason but with him i did and so did my husband who never ever i dont think spoke up to anyone like that before,but doc just yelled NO so what can i do. i do not want to short anyone in anyway ,but in the same respect,i do not have money set aside for revisions to a face that was beautiful to begin with and now has to be rebuilt because of this person responsible.it was quite the unforseen outcome. just because someone may be a cosmetic or occuplastic surgeon,it does NOT mean they got an A in art class.or even that they have any artistic abilility at all. perhaps when a person goes to someone who is going to touch their faces ,the doctor should be asked to draw a picture of a persons face or body or whatever. i CAN draw,sculpt,play musical instruments etc.....so does that mean that i am more qualified than some yahoo that graduated magna cum laude with honors with a medical degree...perhaps so, i think...i got depressed and havent watched what i ate since i realized a year after this revision that the results were going to stay this way..still mountain bike though but i really should though....i used to have a beautiful face and a beautiful body,now i have neither and another surgery i cant pay for and recovery time?.who have you been researching in cali?

I'm going to catch up with all your info. Gezz from the lil I read quick...ugh. Idk how you trust somebody twice. I just can't do it, but I'll be using up everything I saved in the last couple years to fix and the initial surgery I thought I would be back in full swing this week working again. I get too upset and anxiety. Last night slept 3 5 hrs n stI'll up at 2 am tonight. I have never been patient anyway, so to hear in have to wait 6 mths to fix Obv frick ups and look at it and be in the gym with mirrors so I don't let the rob me of that part of me too...and the body I need to model and work..ugh it's sick. I keep my head down and don't wanna see anybody or have them look at me. I as you do..just want fixed. We Def need prayers, mentally, financially and physically. My daughter has a wedding next june if not before. I can't let this ruin this one time event in our lives. Hard to focus as you know. I have a lil faith left that somebody knows what they are doing out there.....somewhere...

im not the type of person to sue anyone for any reason,im not a troublemaker and i am a very forgiving person. i dont want to hurt anyone,but in the same sense,i do not want to be harmed either. doctors have a Hippocratic oath(do no harm)intentional i am sure this outcome was not what he had anticipated ,nor did i. but i do know that it will not be possible to have my eyes look exactly like they were,at least have the inner canthal repaired or opened up somehow,probably with a graft and possibly a little skin incision under the medial canthat to allow the inner eye to drop a little so that the eye will appear a little larger and i will not look so strange. that is all that i can hope for at this point. my doc will not be open and honest with me but i am hoping the person that i am going to see will be able to help me by extracting the complete step by step surgery in order to repair this(they are friends) i am hoping that he could at least give me this

I am glad you finally got to the bottom of what he did. I hope you can find a good surgeon to fix this. I do hope you consult a good malpractice attorney too. Best wishes.
