Beware of This Doctor

I asked for a little neck lift. Minor skin pulling up. He did lypo, when I didn't need it, damaged a nerve, leaving me with a crooked smile, a huge, ugly scar under my chin, which wasn't mentioned at all before-hand, and a horrible baggy, unever, rumply neck (which was beautiful before and normal), with a giant deppression under my chin, a blob of fat on one side, and he sliced bits of my ears...

Great. Pretty sloggy for the first 4 weeks, incisions a bit tender. But fine. Then, weeks 5 and 6, real turning points where you start to really feel like yourself again. Strong, healthy and normal. READ COMMENT

Thanks. My Doctor is on holiday and unreacheable. That's why I'm asking here. READ COMMENT
