Dr. Jonov performed a surgery on me in 2007 with devastating results.
He took out my lower wisdom teeth in which both teeth were impacted. They were close to the nerves, so I told him if the teeth were too difficult to get out, to stop the surgery as I didn't want to risk nerve damage. Guess what happened? Well, BOTH sides of my face, from lower jaw to lips are 100% numb due to him severing the Aveolar nerves. I can stick a needle in my chin and lips and not feel it. I had to relearn how to say words such as "physician" "Face," anything with an F sound in them as you need to feel your lower lip to say certain words. I also can't feel a kiss. My lip and chin feel like there are weights on them, kind of like after anesthesia from the dentist wears off. I was in such a deep depression from this. I went back to him after the surgery, crying, and he was so cruel and uncaring. He snapped at me for being upset. I should have sued, but I had a daughter who had a medical illness and had to focus on her for the next 3 years. I regret not suing the living daylights out of him. And now what is he doing? Plastic Surgery? Please be aware - he is NOT a board certified plastic surgeon! There is a big difference between being Board Certified in Plastic Surgery (something you want) vs. simply being Board Certified by the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery.

Please be careful when you choose your plastic surgery. You must choose someone who is Board Certified in Plastic Surgery and a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Also - best to have an MD Anesthesiologist. It may cost a little more, but it's much safer.
