I first went to Athenix to get Botox injection to help one side of my face look more symmetricall as the other side of my face. that is when I met Dr Kevin Cireci....Not really ever knowing the true underlining condition I Had he took on look at me and gave me a diagnosis which is something many doctors before him couldn't pinpoint. He told me of a surgery that could help make my face look more symmetrical also would pin back my ears and create an ear lobe on the right side in which I didn't have one due to the under development of the right side of my face. Being a mother who is the soul income of my family ( 2 kids myself and my husband) I wish I could do the surgery but knew that there is no way I could've afford it. I told him I would think about it but knew inside thinking about it would be dreaming about it so I left and waiting for my botox to kick in. The good doctor that he is...he didn't want to over due the botox. so I went back in after 2 weeks thinking yah I still need more botox. still wasn't satisfied.... which the botox was just masking the condition not permanently fixing it. So as I sat there waiting for the nurse and The Dr. they both walk in. he sits down and asks me again ..Have you thought about the surgery? My words to him was...I've been thinking about it my whole life...but God's honest truth I can't afford it...so here is where my life changed....he told me I am willing to donate you my services.... in exchange I would like to do a story on you and your condition on the local news.... Shocked .. didn't know what to say...what was I going to say..no?. haha. ofcourse not . as hard as it is to put yourself out there. that was a small price I hadeto pay In this amazing gift I was going to get in return....ofcourse I said yes. I can tell from the look in his eyes. this wasn't a fame thing for him or something for publicity even. this man truly wanted to help me I felt the connection right away. from Day one. Dr Cirisi made me comfortable about this whole thing. I never second guessed this or him. Meeting Dr Cirisi has been life changing. not only has he Given me this Amazing gift. He has restored my confidence. He has made me feel better about myself. He has made me look at myself in a different light....Not only was he my Dr ...I don't like to say he's just a Plastic Surgeon...he is God's helper ..His experience and abilities are amazing. who would've ever thought you can have an earlobe created. or have a tissue from your leg used as a sling in your face to make your smile and face more symmetrical. he is Truly an amazing Dr. and I HIGHLY recommend anyone to go to him. He answers ALL my questions very thoroughly very professional. I can feel he cares alot about his patients and the outcome of the procedure...I will forever be greatful to him....not to mention the staff at Athenix are also amazing. all the girls and nurses and receptionists where extremely helpful and kind. This will always be my home away from home. and Dr Kevin Cireci will always have a very special place in my heart.
