After several years since my "deep tissue" face lift, I still have a lot of scar tissue on both sides of my nose and under my chin........ it was not a pleasant experience, nurse put a drainage tube in that had a hole in it, I was rushed out of the recovery room in the morning before I could even focus, (the nurse was ready to leave), and they neglected to call my husband after procedure which lasted at least an hour more than previously stated. He had to call them over and over until he got a call back. It also has not been a good recovery, short or long term............and still looking at the "results" everyday from surgery ...........and not in a good way. A lot of money lost, and lots of regrets..........my mirror reminds me daily that I chose the wrong doctor. Felt the need to share.
I am 46 and have been a patient of Dr. Kornstein since 1998—when I came to consult with him at age 27. Over the years he has performed about 7 surgeries on me as follows: upper blepharoplasty (eye job), liposuction of butt and tummy, fat transfer to face (my favorite and still going strong), silicone breast augmentation (gorgeous and never a problem, still loving them!), chin implant, endoscopic brow lift, nose (bespoke and befitting my face), and most recently the cutting-edge “J-Plasma” to my body for tightening after some additional lipo on inner thighs and tummy. With all this “work” done, one would think I may look “unnatural” or “too plastic.” Hardly! When people find out just what an “extreme makeover” I really am, they are absolutely shocked at how natural everything looks. Because I stayed with Dr. Kornstein all my life, and allowed him to be the gatekeeper of my procedures, I have avoided looking too done or being talked into things I don’t need. My earlier surgeries improved me aesthetically (and went far to help my self-esteem and confidence which therefore improved my life immeasurably). The later surgeries have been to maintain my totally youthful appearance, which I have helped along with diet and exercise and stress reduction. Dr. K. has always offered me elegant enhancements that were appropriate at the time. Dr. Kornstein operates from a set of basic artistic principles that value harmony and symmetry. Therefore his “eye” for what would be most beautiful to each person’s face and body is keen. But that is not enough: he is a “master craftsman,” meaning, he knows exactly what he’s doing in the Operating Room to execute to the end result. But further, he keeps up on the latest techniques and best-in-class technology (lasers, machines, and such) to enhance his work. He communicates, questions, listens: all the things you want so you’re both clear on what is ultimately wanted. Best: he leaves his ego at the door and just focuses on being the best and doing his best for his patients. Very lucky that he made such a difference in my early life and continues to keep me looking fresh and pretty.
I went for a breast reduction. I wanted small breasts. Scheduled the surgery. I also had a prior one 25 years before and was concerned about the scars widening under my breasts. He said don't worry. First..I woke up with HUGE breasts! I wore the same bras as before. He decided...I looked better since I had wide hips. WHO is he to decide!! Not only that, but I was right the scars under my breasts, were huge and he had to fix it ..under local...so just think how painful that was. In addition his office screwed up on my insurance and I had to pay for it all. He knew I was very unhappy but he said he liked them. NEVER EVER go to him unless you let him do what he wants not you!
