Jawline and Under Chin Not Fixed -Robinson Township, PA

I am 6 months postop and my jawline looks like nothing was done/fat under chin still flabby. Also,I have dents on both sides of my face.
I had my eyes done as well,but have circles under the eyes along with hard cysts on upper lids I waited along time to get this surgery/ didn't have wrinkles, just upper eyelid sagging,under eye circles and sagging jawline
I paid cash up front for a facelift eyes(upper and lower) under chin lipo and tummy tuck. He kept changing my dates for facelift from June until finally it was done in Sept. I didn't realize until the night before that I would be in a twilight sleep. The surgery took 9 hrs which the drugs had worn off and I could feel all the needle injections I even chipped a tooth enduring the pain! All that for these awful results .He was supposed to inject fat under my eyes but said I was bleeding too much so it was never done. I have been so depressed. I went back to him about the problems with the chin and jaw, the cysts on my eyelids and dents in my face
He said that the facelift was fine and if I wanted a neck lift it would cost 4000 more and that he would fix the other problems at that time.
I feel like he should fix my face first and after reading about neck lifts,don't think I'm up for more problems!
Just want my jawline and double chin fixed It sucks that I went through all this and have the same issue I had before, only now I have dents in my face as a bonus!

I would like a list of doctors from the Phoenix, Mesa, Scottsdale area from patients that have been seen by them. I am seriously considering having a facelift this year and would like information and feedback on experiences that others have had. Thank you, Nesmine

Hi Nesmine, I had a LSL in Phoenix 6 mos ago and am going back at the end of the month for a possible revision as it has all gone away. Dr. Desvigne appeared qaulified....I saw another PS in Phoenix listed here as a top 5star doc over 40 5star reviews. His name is Dr. Remus Repta. He was quiet and thoughtful, pulled his chair over to me to look at the pics they asked me to bring, brought me a glass of iced water when I complained of a dry mouth. He explained why I did not get what I paid for and recommended a full face lift. He did not try to sell me anything, I was very impressed with this doctor and hope I can find a way to have him do the work I need. (Oh and he is very handsome!) Hope this helps! And good luck!

Just to be fair I need to tell you that my tummy tuck turned out ok. Not crazy about the navel but tummy is flat .
Our practice philosophy welcomes all feedback. We are constantly looking to improve our practice and our relationship with patients. Unfortunately, for a variety of reasons the surgical outcome does not meet the patient's expectations. When this occurs, our goal is to provide complete patient satisfaction which requires repeated doctor-patient interaction and communication. When it is determined the patient requires revision surgery we take into consideration all options available and through effective communication, a treatment plan is then outlined to obtain the most optimal results through revision surgery. Most revision surgery is performed at no additional cost; however, if there are additional procedures to be performed which were not performed in the primary surgery there may be an additional fee. We welcome any of our patients who are dissatisfied with the results to consult with us and formulate a treatment plan to achieve satisfaction. We encourage you to call us and set up an appointment to discuss any post operative concerns. Best of luck to all of our patients and all patients undergoing cosmetic surgery!

I went back more than once for lasering after the procedure and did ask about finishing the work on my face that wasn't done due to the long amount of time the facelift took.(the doc said) I was told that I would later have fat injections to fill the hollows out underneath my eyes. After the swelling went down in my face I noticed indentations on both sides of my face. I was told by staff that those dents were from the sutures and needed to be filled. I asked to have this fixed every time I went in for the lasering but never heard anything back from the doc. I finally decided that he didn't care if I was happy with my results and just didn't continue to go back anymore.
