Not happy with eyelid surgery results
Self-verified patient of Dr. Brett J Snyder - Posted on May 20th, 2020
I had eyelid surgery with Dr. Brett Snyder in Feb. 2019 and was not pleased with results. My left eyelid was left with a droopy fold. He finally did a revision after I had been back several times. The revision took about 5 minutes in the surgery room. I developed an infection in the eyelid after the revision and was given antibiotics. At my follow up visit I complained to him that my eyelid still had a droopy fold and didn’t look any better. I asked if he planned to do another revision and he just shook his head no. In fact a friend told me the other day that my left lid needed to be re-done and she works in the cosmetic medical field. I’m saving my money to go elsewhere to get it corrected. Very disappointing - I thought this Center was supposed to be “the best”!! Maybe they are over rated.???
Two years of a horrible experience

Review of Dr Brett Snyder. Everyone I know including people who work at PVPS told me they would not trust their face to anyone but Brett Snyder. And so I trusted. I paid $20,000 for a chin lift, brow lift and laser around the eyes and mouth. It's two years later and I'm still trying to get things right, as my lips are full of wrinkles and my forehead is wavy. I also still have numbness in my throat and neck. Dr. Snyder did try fillers in my forehead and my lips but they didn't work. At this point I am beyond tired of going back to have him fix things because it's now been two years, and I think he thinks he's done his job. Instead of filling my forehead and lips full of fillers that won't last, he should have REDONE my forehead and lips. But no, that was never an option even though I asked. He gave me some talk-speak about having to go through general anesthetic again, blah blah blah. I REMEMBER HIS WORDS BEFORE SURGERY WHEN I PRAISED HIS REPUTATION/. "YOU'RE ONLY AS GOOD AS YOUR LAST SURGERY." Well if I'm his best, look out folks! So I went back in today, one last time to see what he was willing/able to do. I showed him a picture of my lips that I took in the mirror at home and his response: "they don't look that way in here, you were puckering." PUCKERING!!!! SO insulting. I was not puckering. Then I asked him if the numbness/neuropathy was every going to go away (it's been 2 years). His response: I don't know because no one has ever asked me that two years out. What????? He doesn't know because no one ever asked him? What kind of answer is that. He was clearly fed up with me, and me with him. He gave me very leveled "doctor respect," which is just a cover up for whatever it was he was really feeling. So, MY chin looks very good. I will go elsewhere for filler, especially if altering failing to get rid of the wrinkles and leaving me with a wavy forehead (which he no longer sees -- how convenient). One last thing that I never reviewed, but shared with them, was the comfortable, dirty environment where they keep people overnight. I'm told that my feed back caused them to fix this situation, but now that it has all turned to a steaming mess I'll share. They have you spend the night, but don't offer any food. I think now they are telling people to bring good. I was in a horribly uncomfortable recliner with dirty cup holders and floors, plaster coming off the walls. So beautiful and lush where the public can see, dirty and horrible the part that the public cannot see. I'm done with these guys who think they are the greatest, who mostly want to hawk producers and expensive surgeries. He does help third world children by mending cleft pallets, so that's one positive thing I can say about him. He is appropriately polite and friendly in an oh-so-doctorish way. I find him intimidating because he knows the medicine and can argue anything he likes in medical-ese, and it's pretty hard to go up against him. When he went through the records though, he didn't remember a lot of things, and said things were not done that showed up in the records as being done. These guys are resting on their Laurels, and I will never go back, after many years of going there.

In January, 2009, I was diagnosed with breast cancer; after making the decision to have a bilateral mastectomy, I needed to find a plastic surgeon for the breast reconstruction phase of this journey. I was given three recommendations to plastic surgeons; after doing some research, I crossed my fingers and chose Dr. Brett Snyder of Ponte Vedra, FL. From the first appointment (where we had SO many questions)to present day (I'm almost done!), Dr. Snyder and his staff have been extremely patient and kind, generous with their time, understanding and supportive. The first couple of weeks after the mastectomy/tissue expander implant surgery were "rough" - not knowing whether the physical aches/pains I was experiencing were "normal" coupled with a desire to NOT depend upon the pain meds sent my already over-extended emotions out of control. I contacted Dr. Snyder's answering service over a weekend; he called back right away and assured me that what I was feeling was normal and that I really WAS okay. Another time, I panicked and convinced myself I was retaining fluid around the tissue expanders; Dr. Snyder's staff went out of their way to get me into the office immediately to be checked. Of course, there was nothing PHYSICALLY wrong with me and although I was really embarassed for making such a big deal out of nothing, Dr. Snyder assured me that he'd "rather be safe than sorry" and everyone was very understanding. In my experience, the tissue expansion was the most physically difficult part of my breast cancer experience. However, I didn't go through it alone - Dr. Snyder and his staff were with me every week, empathetic to the discomfort I was experiencing while continually encouraging me toward the end-goal that would help me to STOP feeling like a cancer patient, raise my self-image and begin to see myself as a whole woman again. We were told that my "support team" would be vital to my recovery - I was truly one of the "lucky ones" when Dr. Snyder and staff became part of that support team.
