We don’t always think about questioning the skill and expertise of our plastic surgeons. We tend to let all of our fears rest at knowing we are in the hands of a professional. But this is not always the case.
Even the celebrities that we so commonly idolize and expect perfection from are subject to an unprofessional surgeon’s hand. There have been times when the supposed expertise of a surgeon has left a patient with nothing less than a horror story.
Here is one patient’s recollection of her own plastic surgery horror story.
My nose was shortened and scooped out from a previous surgery about four years ago. I did a lot of research to find a doctor that came highly recommended. A week after the surgery I got an infection. I called his staff on Monday when I first realized something wasn’t right and got brushed off until that Wednesday. The nurse that still is working there shockingly told me it was normal swelling and that I shouldn’t worry. I called again later on Monday to get the same response. Finally, Wednesday came. I went in to my doctors office and was told that I had a bad infection.
It’s been over three months since my surgery. My nose looks like a train wreck. I have a bump at the top of the graft where it looks like the graft warped and the cartilage is about to break through my skin. My nose looks like it’s way too big for my face and my nostrils are a disaster. My doctor is maintaining that his work was perfect but the infection did all of this to my nose.
This can happen to patients, but the good news is this: we can help you repair the damage that an unprofessional doctor has inflicted. Our doctors are board certified and specially trained in all of the procedures they perform.
