Explant/Lift Disaster - Sarasota, FL

Had my implants removed en bloc and was supposed to get a lift. She decided during surgery I only needed a partial lift. I'm not really sure what she did. I am in a lot of pain and discomfort. I believe the pictures speak for themselves. I am depressed and trying to deal with this. She has not been the least bit concerned with the results. Told me to give it a couple more months. I don't think that's going to change anything. She was very condescending whenever I asked questions. Said she may need to do some "minor" surgery in her office to try and fix all the folds/wrinkling. She never mentioned the shape of them, especially the left one. Dr. Barnett will never touch me again. If she didn't know how to do this surgery (as it appears) she should've referred me to someone else. I agonized over this decision for months, even canceling my original surgery date. But I trusted her and look where that got me. Her office was also supposed to file my insurance since I was having problems with my implants and sickness. Well, that never got done even though I've asked several times. I was always told Taryn would take care of it. When I went on Monday (my FINAL visit), I asked again. They acted like they didn't have a clue what I was talking about. However, Dr. Barnett did agree (once again) to file and thought they might actually pay since it was not purely cosmetic. Monica said she or Taryn would call me. So far no call. Not holding my breath. Needless to say, this whole experience has been the worst thing I've ever had to go through. The only thing holding me together at this point is my faith in God. Otherwise, I don't know what I'd do.

Hopeful

Have made some appointments with a couple of surgeons. Not rushing it but looking at my options (if any). I'm still very depressed and it is affecting my life even though I try not to. I have no one to talk to cause nobody can understand. Anyway, I will let y'all know what the drs say in a few weeks. Prayers appreciated.
