HORRIFIC Job..... TWICE - New York, NY

I had rhinoplasty right before the winter semester...

I had rhinoplasty right before the winter semester ended in grad school. During the consultation, I inquired about all possible side effects. My eyes swelling shut was not mentioned, nor was a decrease in my ability to breathe, and a change in my voice.
My eyes became swollen to the point where I couldn't see my computer screen to finish typing my final papers and I had to call the professor to request an extension and submitting documentation that in fact I had surgery (as if I wanted my professor to know I had surgery.... siiiigh). Another side effect was my voice changed SEVERELY because my septum became deviateed. I went back to him 5 months later and told him I perform.... (I now own a performing arts school) why didn't he mention I stood the chance of messing with my bread and butter??? I could no longer sing soprano post-surgery w/ Dr. Freund. My range dropped to alto and tenor... Siiiigh.

Third complaint.... My bridge implant is completely crooked.... I went to one of those malpractice lawyers and he said I might not win teh case because I'm still attractive.... WHAT? In other words, because I can put myself together, a jury may think "Oh please, what does she have to complain about? She's not ugly... She didn't even need surgery".... Sigh.
Fourth complaint: I brought SEVVVVERAL pics for him to see... And he completely did his own thing. You know how everyone w/ rhinoplasty seems to have that lil triangle-shape on the inner portion of their nose? I sooo didn't want that and told him.... What does he give me? A cookie-cutter nose that ignores every single picture I brought to him.

Fifth complaint: I went back in May at the end of the next semester for him to fix the shape (this time I was awake during the process... OUCH! YIKES!! and Oh My GODDDD!). Again, he ignored the pics I brought and pretty much kept a similar shape. Getting surgery is not about what is easy for teh doctor or what shape he's used to performing; it's about giving the patient what they want, even if they wanted to look like Jermaine Jackson (eek).

It is now 2014 and I am still seeking my 3 surgery... This time to correct the problem initiated by Dr. Freund. I'm getting the bridge put in a straight line and hopefully get the septum "undeviated". I thought to go back to him a 3rd time til he gets it right but ehhh, if he was so inattentive to my specific concerns before, why would he change now?? Horrible. Thoroughly horrible experience w/ Mr. Freund.

I had rhinoplasty right before the winter semester ended in grad school. During the consultation, I inquired about all possible side effects. My eyes swelling shut was not mentioned, nor was a decrease in my ability to breathe, and a change in my voice. (A fellow performer told me after my surgery this is the reason why Barbara Streisand never got her nose done). My eyes became swollen to the point where I couldn't see my computer screen to finish typing my final papers and I had to call a professor to request an extension and submitting documentation that in fact I had surgery (as if I wanted my professor to know I had a nose job.... siiiigh). Another side effect was my voice changed SEVERELY because my septum became deviated. I went back to him 5 months later about my new deeper/ raspier voice.... (I now own a performing arts school but traveled internationally back then performing). Whyyyy didn't he mention I stood the chance of messing with my bread and butter??? I could no longer sing soprano post-surgery w/ Dr. Freund. My range dropped to alto and tenor... Siiiigh. Third complaint.... My bridge implant is completely crooked.... I went to one of those malpractice lawyers and he said I might not win the case because I'm still attractive.... WHAT? In other words, because I can put myself together, a jury may think "Oh please, what does she have to complain about? She's not ugly... She probably didn't even need surgery".... Sigh.

A cookie-cutter nose that ignores every single picture I brought to him. Fifth complaint: I went back in May at the end of the next semester for him to fix the shape (this time I was awake during the process... OUCH! YIKES!! and Oh My GODDDD!... That hurt!!!). Again, he ignored the pics I brought and pretty much kept a similar shape. Getting surgery is not about what is easy for the doctor or what shape he's used to performing; it's about giving the patient what they want, even if they wanted to look like Jermaine Jackson (eeks). It is now 2014 and I am still seeking my 3rd surgery... This time to correct the problems initiated by Dr. Freund. I'm getting the bridge put in a straight line and hopefully get the septum "undeviated" so I can breathe without these meds I've had to take as a result. I thought to go back to him a 3rd time til he gets it right but ehhh, if he was so inattentive to my specific concerns before, why would he change now?? Horrible. Thoroughly horrible experience w/ Mr. Freund.
