Hairline Lowering, Brow Lift - Beverly Hills, CA

I just had my hairline lowering surgery 2 weeks...

I just had my hairline lowering surgery 2 weeks ago with dr. Aharonov. I traveled from VERY far away, all the way from a small country in Europe to get this surgery done and I came with my parents who were my caretakers for the time being, with them both taking time off of work to be there for me, which was pretty difficult cause my dad is a lawyer and is quite busy. And I can't really say that I am pleased and would do it again. I must say that even though I do like the results because my forehead looks a lot better than before, this is going to be an overall negative review. I admit that my forehead is better, in that it is not as big as it used to. But my hairline LITERALLY looks crooked. I don't know why this is, I'm guessing it's dr. Aharonov's negligence, but it is genuinely a lot lower on one side and higher on the other. But I am definitely planning on fixing that with some hair grafts, so I'm not stressing too much, and it does look a lot better than before, so it's not that bad. He also SUPPOSEDLY lifted my brows. Although, they look ABSOLUTELY NO DIFFERENT. The main problem with that is that I payed for a brow lift as well, but it seems to me I didn't get one. Or if he did perform it, it is still not noticeable at all. And while I did ask for a 'natural look', I didn't think that meant I'd look no different than I naturally do. But that's not even the problem that I have with him. The main problem that I have with him is that he is SO RUDE. He's nice to you when you come in for a consultation cause he's basically trying to buy you, he even went as far as to say 'I don't care about the money, I just wanna make sure I'm helping people' during our consult, which I thought was ridiculous coming from a plastic surgeon who basically makes money by exploiting people's insecurities (what a noble and generous job lol), but whatever.. I just have to say that I am SO DISAPPOINTED in how he treated me (and from what I've heard, several other patients as well) afterwards, when I came in for my stitches removal and a check up, he was so dismissive of all my questions and when he was taking the stitches out, he was SO ROUGH and it started bleeding, but he didn't even give me a tissue, so I had blood pouring down my face when I left his office, it was disgusting. It definitely taught me to be careful when picking out a surgeon, you really can't place your trust in just anyone. And if someone does decide to go with dr. Aharonov, make sure you DON'T GO TOO LOW. He showed me a few pics of his old patients and even he said he thought that some of them went too low and it really does look bizarre. Because this is a surgery you CAN'T FIX. If you go too low, you can't reverse it and get your skin back cause it's gone forever. I like the size of my forehead now, I feel like it's the perfect size, it's not too low or too high, it's just what I wanted. But it's still always better to go a little higher than too low, cause too low is just scary, in my opinion. I'm glad at least one good thing came out of this experience, the size of my forehead is just right. However, dr. Aharonov should definitely work on his bedside manners and how he treats his parents after he's taken their money, cause he made it pretty clear to me he just doesn't care after that point. I've had quite a few plastic surgeries in my life, and I've never met such a rude and arrogant surgeon. I've had two plastic surgeries last year on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills very close to where dr. Aharonov's office is, and that surgeon was a 100 times more polite and professional in how he treated me before AND after surgery, so I know it's not a case of European surgeons being nicer than American surgeons, it's simply a case of dr. Aharonov being a rude, disrespectful, dismissive surgeon.
