In first facelift, the Dr. walked into the pre-surgery consultation and glared at me as if he hated me. Previous consultations had been normal and pleasant. He'd been recommended & I thought it was just a mood. In that surgery, he anchored my face downward, and I looked much worse than before.
In 2nd facelift, 9 mos. later, he left right side looser, and still did not lift my mouth as he'd promised numerous times. (I've now learned, a mouth lift is usually not part of a facelift.) And my face is too hollow and narrow, giving me an old appearance.
Since being discharged by Dr. Gutek because I didn't immediately accept his proposal of a third facelift, my nightmare continues. I can never forget his extreme mood swings, or that he was in a seething rage before my first surgery and anchored my face downward. His constant cynical lying and contempt, and my resultant appearance, haunt me more because I honestly feel I was the victim of a crime by someone with a personality disorder. My previously happy-looking face is more like a death mask. When in public I can never forget to try to "smile," so I can look a little more like myself, but I'll never feel like myself again.
