Not a Complete Disappointment But... - Tampa, FL

- 24 Nov 2012
First I would like to say I was not prepared for the pain the first night. I know now that the padding that should have been applied under my chin before being wrapped like a mummy was not applied. It felt like having my throat slit with a fishing line sawing back and forth. The postop visit the next day, I was told I was doing fine. However, as the surgical tech, not even a nurse, removed the dressing and discarded it, it was never noted that there was no drainage on the right side and I learned later that THERE SHOULD HAVE BEEN!
The drain area they leave open behind your ear had closed off not allowing the blood to drain out, and as a result I developed an enormous hematoma that coverd the right side of my face and neck. Old blood had to be drained off several times using a syringe. It took about 3 months for the bruising to go away. There was no way of concealing it and I had to go back to work! Final results are certainly an improvement but jowls are returning and I'm only 6 months out. I'm not real confident in how long all of this will last.
My Doctor: Jason L. Swerdloff, MD
Appropriate attention to first postop dressing change and amount of drainage was totally lacking. I believe that had it been noted the drainage opening had close off that I would not have developed the hematoma.
