My Face & Life is Ruined, False Information from Doctor & His Assistant - Bethesda, MD

Paralysed,not feminine & looks bad, assymetry, all saving $ is gone

I look very horrible but now I'm disable too! I spent so much money & time on this, I didn't money be the factor in the surgery, now every day I wake up, I hope it's all a bad dream but it's not. I cant even cry because of paralysis, i can't eat only liquid so I lost a lot of muscle too. What a nightmare! I can't laugh, my skin suffers a lot, cant sleep or move fast.

Worst decision in my life

Painful & paralysis in 3 week after cheek lift. I lost so much time & saving to fet a droopy older paralyzed face. I was going to get a normal cheek lift but I got some other thing! Preop appointment wmax. 10 minutes! I was shocked. My lips are in a very bad shape, i feel my face is falling down, very scary. Don't do this procedure

still paralyzed, assymetric & horizontal cheeks with hollow above & below

I look like an ape because my nose & above mouth is swollen. I also look older & less feminine. 10 minutes preop appointment was a red flag.

Temples look very hollow & horrible due to cheek lift

I hate my face

Midface lift creates an unnatural look

Midface lift creates an unnatural look. As much as I try to stay positive to keep my sanity, when I see the reflection of my face in glass or steel surfaces, I freak out & remember all the money & time wasted to look horrible & be paralyzed. (I don't look in mirror at all) This trip cost me 13K but doctor didn't spend more than 10 minutes with me to hear what I want & explain what he's gonna do with my face! Make sure you know what you get yourself into because after its done, there are so much regret ($ time face)

Please don't do this surgery, it takes years to recover

Ive read many forums & message board & many people have said it took them years even 7 years to recover,they never looked nicer, they said their face aged very unnatural years after the procedure... Why my doctor did to me. When i was in my teens, i hadn't much volume in my cheeks but i looked very nice & youthful, soft & smooth cheeks. This is a nightmare

My scary face looks more normal but still dysfunctional face

Swelling is less which means volume disappearing. Face is dysfunctional, can't chew smile or cry. Burning sensation in face & temple & scalp. Doesn't feel is gonna get better. I have a square face now (not pleasant) but Im scared when swelling in lower cheeks is gone I would look scary again (cheeks are horizontal & vertical length is half of the normal cheek)

Abnormal droopy face after cheek lift

I still have dysfunctional face. It hurts that I paid money to make myself look and feel worse. I can't even do normal activities I used to do, smiling and chewing hurts, can't run ride a bike, bite a sandwich, asymmetric face. Doctors are protected nit patients

Hollow lower cheeks and droopiness

I basically paid this doctor to cut my face open, to get scarred for life and to not be able to do any physical activity and make myself look like a monsters. Thx dr Richards

I only meet the doctor for 5-10 minutes, everyone dishonest about recovery and what surgery can do. Wrong procedure and he says he didn't lift my tissue and I might not like the results after surgery is done!
