Waiting on my Revision Surgery - London, GB

Well... Almost a year after a disastrous Vaser...

Well... Almost a year after a disastrous Vaser procedure, I am lying in a bed waiting for the revision. I'm due to have Mid-Def to smooth out the hills and valleys that is my current silhouette.

I've been lying here for almost 3 hours as the surgeon is running late. However. he has fit me in late notice so I'm trying not to complain even though I could have done a full day's work. I'm more worried that he will be tired and rush my procedure and I'll be just as miserable next year., but at the same time... I don't want to postpone. Why did I ever start this journey ???? Wish me luck all... I can't go through this a 3rd time.

Should be getting used to the disappointment

The doctor finally arrived... he marked me up, but then the anaesthetic left and I am exactly where I was, but even more devastated, and less 2 days pay, with cancelled plans for the next 3 weeks, and add a fallout with my boyfriend. And as I lied to everyone but him and made alternative arrangements i.e. sold concert tickets etc. it is difficult to just reschedule things.

I so regret ever considering Lipo. The physical, emotional and mental ups and downs are definitely taking their toll. Slightly chubby but normal... is far better than chubby and deformed.

Don't upset the Doctor

Lesson to all... even if you are being honest and trying to be objective... it's not good to post negative things about your would be surgeon. I was really hoping to come back and change my review and say how wonderful Dr Hamlet was, but unfortunately he never gave me that chance.

A few months after my abandoned surgery, I booked a consultation, hoping to get the revision done as per the previous plans. But all of a sudden Lipo was not right for me... even though I had been booked in, marked up and ready for the procedure a few months prior. And his attitude to me had totally changed. I could tell he just didn't want to do it and was looking for excuses. He advised me to have a consultation with Ricardo Frati to see if I would be better with a Tummy Tuck, but even then he didn't know if he would be willing to operate on me. I left his consultation in tears and in shock, as I was really hoping that he would be the one to fix me.... but instead he was cold and showed a complete lack of empathy.
Dr Grant Hamlet

April 2016 - I really hope I get to change these ratings, this is not for the procedure itself, as that has not happened.... but right now I think that there has been a fair amount of indifference and lack of empathy with regards to how I have been treated. Having to hound for any form of response after being let down so badly... is not acceptable. Then to get a date over 2 months after the original booked date... really not what I would call good practice. September 2016 - Can't change my review of Dr Grant Hamlet, as he did not show any compassion to me, no remorse or apologies for my cancelled appointment, or empathy of how it could feel to have physically, mentally and emotionally prepared yourself for a procedure to be cancelled at the last minute. Then months later to be cold and unsympathetic again, is really not what I would expect. I cannot review his work, as he never worked on me... but the change in his manner was very disappointing. However, Carolinn his assistant was an absolute angel and tried her best to comfort me when I was distressed. I cannot speak highly enough of her as she seemed to care and show compassion when her boss didn't.
