Facelift Gone Bad

Sorry but no referral from me. Had facelift and ended up with one ear longer than the other and my pierced earrings went in different directions. Revisions are like pulling teeth - you'll get the yes we will fix it but after two/three tries I am done. He does that purposely to wear you down. Patel even told me the last time that I would have to wait 10 years to fix the ear properly. Funny I went to another surgeon who fixed it within two weeks. And he did it correctly. The invoice was sent to patel for reimbursement but nothing so far. Now he doesn't respond to emails. Also left scars on my cheek in front of ears. In other words scar management should be part of the package . Not here. Costing me more money to have the scars lasered. So essentially I am paying for something I already paid for.... IMHO he does what is easiest and fastest for him with little or no regard for patients. Ameteur results at best. I would seek more competent and professional doctor. Reading here how he has a habit of loosing files - seems to be common and I am wondering if that only happens to patients who point out his inadequacies. Word in social media is that he removes negative reviews - let's see
Hoffman Estates Plastic Surgeon

I would look for a more professional doctor who stands by his work and makes an honest attempt to repair what was not correctly done.
