Show More Most of my experience during this year of recovery was full of confusion and anguish due to my doctor not taking the time to fully explain what I can expect in the outcome. Like a scar in outer corners of eyelids. I really like Dr. Rose, he's very sweet and showed sincere compasion at the worst of times - emergency surgery to replace breast implant due to hematoma/seroma (after performing a closed capsulectomy), and was truly sorry for the way my capsule hardened so much. That's just the way my body seals off the foreign object, not his fault. ******* In the end I just couldn't live with the hardness of my breasts, and he just let me go. I felt like he didn't care, there was nothing more he could or would do. He truly expected me to live like this and said they look good (totally disregarding my comment about the aching pain from the capsular contracture). I don't agree with his perception of what looks good, a natural look, etc. (Update 1 year after initial surgery: I had a different doctor redo and am so relieved the nightmare is over.) ******* I'm not happy with the lower lid surgery results. When I asked if Botox would help the wrinkles under my eyes, I feel like he should have recommended I try it or fillers before recommending the lower lid surgery. I didn't need it. I know that now and totally regret doing it. It was by far the most difficult part of my recovery from all 3 procedures I had. There are so many risks with this surgery, which I now know about from this site. It's not worth the risks, and most doctors state this surgery is strictly to remove fat, not wrinkles. I was led to believe the skin would be tightened slightly, and an incision placed only under the lash line. After researching I thought he was doing what is called a skin pinch. I later learned fat was removed. Another doctor that examined me months later explained the details of a standard bleph, and that muscle is typically cut as well. The white scars extending from outer corners of each lid are extremely difficult to accept since I was never told I would have them. (Update 1 year after surgery: My wrinkles appear deeper now due to fat being removed. The first thing I see when I look in the mirror every day is the creases in outer corners, the white scars are the 2nd. I am extremely disappointed in my choice to do this surgery and even more so that it was recommended by Dr. Rose.) ******** I am however pleased with the upper lid surgery. He was conservative, which gives you the most natural result. Although white, the scars are hidden perfectly in my crease. ******** I think if all goes well and as expected, Dr. Rose is a good choice. However everyone heals differently and it's important to know that, and to fully understand all the details while making your decision to have plastic surgery. I feel that Dr. Rose rushed through my consultations, didn't feel it was necessary to explain everything. Expects his patients to just trust him and has a confidence about him that leaves you to do just that.

Show More I just have to share my wonderful experience with Dr. Rose! I was so nervous to have surgery but he put all my fears to rest and made me feel at ease. I had no reason to be nervous because the results of my surgery turned out beautifully! Dr. Rose always saw me personally at all my follow up visits and I didn't have to wait long at my appointments to see him. He is a kind, gentle, and wonderful surgeon and amazing person. Thank you Dr. Rose and for taking such great care of me before, during and after surgery. I am forever grateful for what you did for me! :)
