Bad Decision. Los Angeles, CA

Honestly, I've thought long and hard about whether to write this review or not. I've been back and forth for years, but I've finally decided to write it. I had surgery 3 summers ago with Dr. Diamond. I'm not even going to say how much this surgery cost, but the price tag was outrageous. And that was fine with me because I believed I was getting one of the best plastic surgeons for my money. Unfortunately, that was not the case. Dr. Diamond also used a second ENT doctor to perform the surgery with him. What that meant on my end was even more $. Which again, was fine, because my result was guaranteed to be perfect. Well, my nose is still crooked and pretty close to where I started. Not at all what I would have expected. I also don't have any improvement in breathing and if anything my breathing is worse.

So, what's the worst thing that can happen when you have bad plastic surgery? A bad outcome right? Not the case here. In addition to the bad rhinoplasty, I was left with a quarter size gouge on my forehead. It looked as though someone had taken a small scoop out of my forehead. The wound was deep, red and very noticeable. My forehead had nothing to do with the surgery. Years later I'm left with a large SCAR on my forehead that Dr. Diamond could never explain. If that's not horrifying, I don't know what is. I've spent my own time and money trying to treat the scar myself after Dr. Diamond unsuccessfully had a woman try to camouflage it with permanent makeup. So far, I've easily spent $2000 on the scar and it is only slightly better. It is likely that I will need to have the scar tissue cut out and have the scar surgically revised by another plastic surgeon. Again, this scar was pure negligence. I have not received any sort of reimbursement for any of the treatments I've had performed. Not surprising.

It pains me to write this review because Dr. Diamond and his staff are perfectly "nice" people. I did like them and trust them in the beginning. But I've lost so much time, confidence, and money due to this surgery that I'm not comfortable keeping it to myself. Everyone I know asked about the scar, and a woman I know in a professional setting sat me down and seriously wondered if my husband was beating me. Can you even imagine? The emotional toll has been so great. I wish I had never used this surgeon. I hope other people benefit from this review and I certify that everything in it is the 100% truth.
