Worst Decision of my Life! - Honolulu, HI

Please save your money and go somewhere else! ...

Please save your money and go somewhere else! This guy is the worst doctor of all. I'm here to let everyone know my worst decision and worst experience ever under the care of a doctor. This doctor is careless, has the worst bedside manner and overall the results of my surgery were botched! They make you pay up front then they take you in for a preop. This doctor didn't even see me again after the initial (and only) consultation for mommy makeover. I asked to see him before the surgery on the day of preop but his staff told me he's not available. I had doubts in my mind and I should've went with my instincts not to do it with this surgeon... But because of scheduling and taking time off from work I had to keep my appointment and hope for the best. Went in for my surgery last June 2015.

After the surgery, I struggled with the results because the breasts or implants were sitting so low and then 4 weeks later, I've noticed the left breast was sitting lower than right. He told me he'll fix it and he guarantees his work. So he did Kenalog shot on right breast, made me come in for several ultrasound therapy on right breast (they claim will break down scar tissue of the breast to make them even).
Then came the scar tissues on my tummy tuck getting more hypertrophied. So he decided to inject kenalog to break down the scar. He did the injections for 2 sessions (6weeks apart). He injected more on the right side of my tummy. I texted him why he only did the right side. He said no I put more in the middle. During this time I was having pain on the right side of my tummy. I was getting concerned. I was having doubts not to come back for the second follow up after initial injection. But I still went hoping he'll fix it as he promised. But then again he injected on the right side again the second time. I already know this doctor is careless and he doesn't calculate the effects of what he's doing. After those shots, my tummy looked a lot worst! On the last follow up, I asked why my right pelvis now has this dent! He was getting flustered I could tell. After a year of knowing this doctor he called me "Ma'am" when I questioned the outcomes of what he did to my body! Does he not know my name by now? So please don't be fooled by his commercials and publicities! He is the worst doctor around! Very careless, uncalculative, doesn't know how to accept crticism when you question his work but rather he becomes defensive, he failed to communicate majority of the time I did my follow ups... He mostly didn't talk unless you ask him questions! After knowing him for a year, I never really felt that rapport and never felt that he really cared. I never felt comfortable around him because I felt I didn't fully trust him!

Overall a year later my surgery still not fixed. My left breast sits lower than right and my tummy now has an uneven dent on the right side. It's horrible! I consulted with several other plastic surgeons. I am determined to get this fixed under someone who knows what they're doing.

So please save yourself the trouble and learn from my mistakes with this surgeon. Go with the real board certified plastic surgeon who actually knows what they're doing. Who will listen to your concerns and explain to you thoroughly the possible results and outcome. And most importantly will genuinely care for you and make sure you get the best results!
Honolulu Facial Plastic Surgeon

Worst bedside manner, careless, not genuinely caring, poor surgical artistry and skills in plastic surgery. After trying to correct my hypertrophied tummy scar tissue with 2 sessions of Kenalog shots, my tummy looked a lot worst! He never talked to me about the possible results or effects of his "corrective" actions which made my results even worst after the shots. From day one the breasts/implants were sitting low and eventually became uneven (left breast lower than right).
