Think twice about cosmetic procedure with him

I went to Dr. Falcon at the recommendation of a friend who had worked with him in the OR. I lost a significant amount of weight and while I trained a lot during the weight loss, I had a belly apron and hanging mons. At my initial consultation for an abdominoplasty, I found him and his staff to be very friendly and relatable. I ended up scheduling my procedure that day. I met with him once more before the day of the surgery and everything seemed fine; I wasn't feeling nervous. I liked that I'd have a pain pump on me for the first days and wouldn't have to rely on pain pills as much. The surgery happened with no problems and while my overnight stay was probably unnecessary, I stayed and was released early the next day. My bruising and pain was minimal. I had two drainage tubes and a dressing. This is the last time anything was normal. Even immediately after the surgery and having some swelling, I didn't look right. My incision line was fine but really low and I looked pregnant. I stayed that way for months. I had MANY seromas after the surgery, most requiring aspiration in office, one requiring an ulstrasound guided drainage tube insertion and one requiring a surgical removal, which was by far the 2nd biggest disaster because Dr. Falcon stated "I didn't like drainage tubes" (Who does!) so he didn't place one after the surgery and I ended up developing another HUGE seroma that drained for weeks into a mess of gauze. I nearly went broke from buying all the gauze. After all of this, I looked awful. I looked and felt worse than when I went in. The physical recovery was nothing compared to the emotional toll this took on me. He completely downplayed the severity of these complications and side effects. Everything was a "wait and see" and nothing aggressive was done to resolve these issues. But it was suggested I put a copy of Reader's Digest in my binder to help flatten me! I'm not kidding!!! He offered to do a "revision" at "no cost". I couldn't go through with it. My body was ruined. In a state of desperation, I went to another surgeon and paid him in full to revise me as much as possible. Guess what? Not one problem. I don't look like I have paid over $12,000 in abdominoplasty service but I don't look pregnant anymore. Dr. Falcon may be an expert with certain procedures, but I would think twice about any cosmetic surgery. Plus the wait time to see him is ridiculous because so many people are scheduled at the same time. Believe me, I had 15+ appointments over the course of 6 months and nothing was ever quick.

The most honest review you will read!

I had met Dr Falcon almost 25 yrs ago when he did my breast reduction surgery. He did an excellent job on them. Then, almost 30 yrs later I had to have a cyst removed by him. Its true, you do wait for a very long time to see him ( over and hour) but he did a great job on my surgery. His staff treated me very well also. I don't expect any Dr. to be my buddy or treat me like a personal friend. They ALL make me very nervous regardless. To me, as long as he knows what he is doing and does a good job, answers all my questions and treats me with respect, how much more can I ask for. I think that's all any of can hope for with any Dr. Remember, they are human too and not Gods! I am now considering surgery again and I will call him. Hope this helps all of you on the fence.
