Horrible Experience!! - Queens, NY

I had a tummy tuck and fat grafted to my butt...

I had a tummy tuck and fat grafted to my butt about 2 years ago with Dr. Moreano. I will not be posting pictures, I am so disgusted with my body, I dont even want to look at myself in the mirror. I trusted him because he is a known surgeon, and celebrities have gone for procedures with him Nd of course why would you doubt a doctor's skill if he has celebrity clients under his belt. Little did I know, I was going to regret letting him perform this surgery on me!! This man has ruined my life, I dreamed being able to wear a bikini, I did this surgery because I wanted to look good and feel good about myself. Now its the complete opposite. I feel like he just took my money and saw me as a number, not as human being. If hes going to
Cater just to celebrities then he definitely should not perform surgeries, being a doctor is about making your patient comfortable, giving them confidence that your going to perform to the best of
Your ability. My stomach still looks the same, he did not perform a tummy tuck nor did he do any fat grafting. I wanted to get rid of my back rolls and have the stomach that I envisioned. I did not expect a flat stomach but I sure as hell did not ever expect to look nearly the same!!!! I went back to him expressing my concern. The only thing he said was " I can fix it in 6 months". REALLY??!!! After I already paid you 8,000 the least you could do is a revision and not charge me since he obviously has no skill in performing a tummy tick or lipo. If i paid thousands i expect to be satisfied!! Moreano is rude and arrogant, especially after taking your money!!
I went to see this poor excuse of a surgeon a few years ago. The tummy tuck with lipo and fat transfer to my butt was to be in total $10,000.00 Well, needless to say he only did the tummy tuck, which destroyed my body. The scar is horrendous and two years later I still have black and blues on my rib cage. My bellybutton is dark red around it and it is ugly. The scar he did for the tummy tuck is quite above the bikini line and it goes from hip to hip and in zigzag. on top of the pubic area it rises so far up I cannot hide it with a bikini underwear. Well, that is the first surgery, I had to return for the lipo and fat transfer, HE DOES NOT DO BOTH surgeries together, but he does not tell you that! So, unless I paid another $2,500.00 for the anesthesiologist he would not perform the surgery. Well, more money and based on him he removed the fat from the back and under my breasts to do the fat transfer. However, even after the surgery the rolls on my back were visible and my butt was the same one I entered the operating room with; he did nothing! Once you pay and he does the surgery he can care less if you drop dead. If you want to see his arrogant and presumptuous behavior you need to do what I did, that I showed up at his office with bloody bandages and he was highly upset, because I arrived at a time when his waiting room was filled. He kept questioning me as to why I did not show up after 3:00 or 4:00. When I asked him for my medical records he gave me the run around. I obtained some copies, but not all. I just had my medical doctor request them. I have been doing some background check on him and I am going to copy and paste it for you. Certifications & Licensure American Board of Otolaryngology Certified 2015 years in Otolaryngology NY State Medical License Active through 2013 Those are his licenses above, below you have his specialties and interests, but he is not Medically Board Certified as a Plastic Surgeon. I searched and was unable to locate his license in cosmetic surgery. Specialty & Clinical Interests Plastic Surgeon: Head & Neck Plastic Surgery Clinical Interests: Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Presently, I have found a lump on the scar that moves and it hurts and my abdomen has become extremely hard, so I am desperately hoping he did nothing to hurt me. My best friend saw my body and told me I should sue him, YES, ladies it is that bad. I am just hoping there is nothing wrong with me and if that is the case, I am taking a trip to Colombia to have reconstructive surgery and correct the abomination that bastard has done to my body. I detest looking at myself. All that money spent on a doctor that has no consideration of the people that put food on his table and let him live in luxury. I just hope the doctors here find nothing wrong with me health wise or I will see him in court. Be careful, he is only nice until he gets his hands on your money, after that he could care less!
Hello everyone, Thank you for your comments. I am feeling better, I have indeed considered taking this to a legal matter, its has been 2 years since this surgery, so I am hoping that wont be a problem. I have considered going for a revision with another recommended surgeon to correct what he couldnt obviously correct. But this time I will do my homework in choosing the best surgeon for me. I have decided to upload pictures to show everyone, this weekq. I just dont want another person to go what I did, and hopefully my story can help someone in making a better choice. Thank you everyone for your kind words, it really made me feel better.
I am so sorry to hear this. Praying that you are able to get some type of resolution.
