I wouldn't do it again

I took my daughter for a revision of a scar that resulted from a fall when she was a just a toddler that left a punctured deeply depressed scar on her forehead. Even though it was small it was quite noticeable because of its depth. My daughter who is now in her late teens was ready to get the scar fixed and Dr. Branham’s credentials seem to fit the bill, especially based on all the amazing pictures of revised scars – before/after pictures on his website. To make the long story short, after Dr. Branham’s revision, the little scar is no longer as deep but still is just as noticeable because it is at least twice as wide but still recessed. What used to be one pitted scar, looks like two pitted scars – albeit shallower. In my research, I came upon a textbook in plastic surgery and a couple of things mentioned is to make sure the incision will result in a no-tension closure so that the endings do not end up with “dog ears” and that the stitches not be so tight that they leave “railroad tracks”. Both of these occurred in the surgery scar that Dr. Branham created. In fact, right after the surgery when my daughter removed the bandage that night to change it, my heart fell to my stomach when I saw the kind of work that was done. I saw the very tight tension in the middle (so tight in fact that it looks like it would tear the skin) and I could see the gaping ends (i.e., dog ears). In listening to Dr. Branham, you get the impression that he really knows what he is talking about and I believe he does --- but the knowledge unfortunately did not translate to hand skills – at least not in my daughter’s case. The dermabrasion helped but definitely not enough. It is still a noticeably depressed and irregular scar. He knows I am disappointed and he admitted then that his expertise is more on rhinoplasty. I wished he admitted this to me before he took on my daughter’s case. For readers, do your due diligence. Ask for references – previous clients who had similar type of surgery, get two or three or those and ask to see their before and after pictures. And just as importantly, listen to your gut feeling – it’s a very fleeting feeling so pay close attention to it. Don’t rely solely on credentials (though those are very important but not enough) and what’s on the website. Ask lots of questions. Don’t assume that the pictures on the website are the doctor’s patients. That I still don’t know as I never asked – for it was too late for us. It is one of the most distressing experiences of my life.

Dr. Branham seemed very knowledgeable but personally my gut feeling was off. His personal health appearance was an issue for me and he didn't seem trustworthy.

Excellent doctor

Very professional and caring. Took the time to listen to my complex issues regarding my revision rhinoplasty. Surgery went very well and had less bruising and overall a better experience than when I had my first rhinoplasty.
