Mid Facelift is a Disaster - Long Island, NY
on 2 Aug 2013
I am so sorry for all that you have gone through and are dealing with. It is so not fair and so not right. Please know you are not alone. There are way too many of us out there, it is sickening. I am now talking with 13 people that have suffered and continue to suffer with their aftermath; all by the hands of the same doctor. I wish we chose a talented, caring, honest, ethical, surgeon. One that puts their patients first and does no harm. Regrets! Thank you for sharing your story. I can relate to what you are saying regarding no pre-op appointment, the day of my surgery he asked me,"What are we doing today?" Like he had no clue. By writing this review, you are helping so many people. Today is a bad day for me. Today is the day I was operated on, two years ago. Like you, I have nerve damage as well, under my right eye. This day will always mark the day that my worst nightmare came true. Thank you again for being strong enough to post your review. I know it was hard, but knowing that you are helping others is such a good feeling. Thank you for doing that. It is obvious you care about people too. You are a good person. I wish you peace and healing.

Hi Badmidfacelift: I am so very sorry for your experience. This is just awful. He should have never said those words to you, "Sweetheart, stop it! I just ripped all the muscles off the bones of your face." That was not comforting in anyway! That is just so very cruel! I'm sure this scared you even more. This goes to show you what an uncaring person he really is. I am so sorry you had to go through that trauma. This is just so devastating. It is disturbing that he went into your mouth and cut through your gum line without your consent. You should have been told this way in advance and NOT after surgery. I bet you wouldn't have opted for that in a million years. But he said is was non-invasive and you trusted him. I am talking with two other women that suffer the same exact damage as you. Doctors have mentioned that this is what is causing their nerve damage, the cutting of the inside of the mouth. I am so sorry he did this to you. I am sick to hear that you are having trouble eating after this surgery. Getting food stuck in your mouth is just so not right. It is awful. I hope the physical therapy to your face has helped you. How long have you been in therapy for? This information may help others with nerve damage/ paralysis and are trying to help themselves. I didn't have a facelift, but I have the same damage you describe to your eyes. The whites that you have that are now showing is called 'scleral show' This is because he took way too much skin from your lower lids; now your lower lids are pulled down because they cannot support the weight. Asymmetry of the eyes is so upsetting, I feel your pain, I have that too. Thank you so much for having the courage to tell your story. You should be commended. You are doing a public service. You are helping many people that are researching for a competent, trusting, honest, ethical doctor. I wish you nothing but peace and healing. I understand your devastation and pain. Again, thank you for sharing.

Dr Jacono SUCKS!! WARNING to all!

Just because a doctor calls himself a "Top Doctor" or a "Rhinoplasty Specialist" doesn't make it true. You and I and so many others are proof of that.
