Run away from Dr. Drehsen

I had a face lift,fat transfer,and nose job by Dr. Drehsen. I'm not very happy with my poor results and he's lacker of interest on handling my concerns, He's response was DON'T OBESSES YES right after spending almost 30.000 on my face I expected I was getting the best WRONG.Face lift was ok no problems . The fat transfer he has very little knowledge on the subject , DONT WAIST TIME AND MONEY what is holding him back is He acts like he already knows everything about it there for he will not learn anymore. If you need fat transfer I fould a wonderful expert on fat graft that put Dr. D to shame in many ways caring, professional and he actually listen to yours need and wants and try to help get the look you want he's in Baltimore Dr. Ricardo Rodrigues he fixed the mess that Dr. D did on my face check pictures. The results for my nose absolutely unacceptable ,I made the mistake to get a revision from him and turn out worse then the first one, so more money,time out etc… to fix my nose .He all so performed a lip lift because after the face lift my mouth was weird, he sad was the only way to fix my mouth but it didn't do a thing to change the appearance of it, this was the same time as my nose revision,He did NOT lift enough and lips not centered with the nose again more surgery more $$$$ I was all so paid to get a fat transfer, when I woke up from anesthesia I went to the bathroom i looked in the mirror could NOT believe my eyes he did NOT do my fat transfer at that time i was very upset , but work out for the best because I have learned a lot about fat graft it has to be harvest, prepare and re injected in a exactly way to be a successful so they will survive. When I asked him he had no answer for me, i had two consults about it i paid for it and all just crazy. He give me my money back. I'm embarrass to say how much I had to spend to fix Dr. D wonderful Refresher face lift, and I truly hope this helps you to make the right choice, It's been a loooong painful for me ,after he's face lift I had two more surgery in less then one year and still more to go.I really think should be some laws changed so plastic surgeons will take more responsabilities on what they create

Dr. D its like this You have surgery results are great, good if its no good he doesn't owned up, admit or try to help to find a solution he left me hanging IT'S NOT OK !!!!! and ITS NOT OK that I had to spend so much money to fix he's mistakes and never mind the pain, time cooped up in the house recovering .The recovering for the refresher lift is very long I looked like a monster for 7 months. I got one of the most dangerous infection don't remember the name from he's office after stitches removal it took 4 bottles of antibiotics to clear up.They recommended a nurse to care for me at my house she was absolutely heartless , I wonder how someone like that becomes a nurse, I pay her and send her out the door. Things I observed while in he's care: They like $$$$ thats all the matters.only one staff there showed they care and compassion Stephanie she's a sweet heart.Its very hard to communicate with Dr and get questions answerd.The hospital hard to find , it did not help that the pacient coordinator give me wrong address ,the nurses are very rough my arms and body all screeched from finger nails,my rib was out of place thank god my husband is a chiropractor and fix me up is the worst pain ever!!! When coming out of anesthesia the nurses communicate from long distance so they have to shout it was terrible I could go on and on … I wanted to write this review for a while now but I hate writing a bad review but I owed to you out there looking to look better I'm Waiting for a day that laws will protect us from Drs like this one.

Hollow eyes

I forgot to mention about my eyes, Dr. Drehsen recommended removing the fat under my eyes, I didn't agree it, but trusted his judgment . I didn't really have any fat or bags !!! BIG MISTAKE. I DO NOT regret I love my results now just wish was right the first time.
