My surgery was 11 months ago. Facelift. My scaring behind my ears are so large that I've had severe hair loss around the ear and behind the ear. I also have nerves that still cause pain anytime I eat. Things haven't changed since all the after visits. My eyes do not close correctly and dry eye is an issue. My visits with Malcom were laughable. He had no sympathy and really tried to make a joke of it all. I'm so sorry I bought into his jolly personality. Trust me people its fake.
All done with local sedatives and no pain during or after, my facelift, eyes and mouth area are now significantly improved and natural looking.
I'm surgically battered from another plastic surgeon. I went to Lesavoy for a consultation aftewards. I showed photos of my body, and explained what happened, along with the operative report, consultation notes, etc. The surgery I'd had disabled me. The areas removed were not consented to, and basically ended my functional, quality life. I asked Lesavoy if he thought this was a good outcome for someone to do this outlandish thing to me, (I'm clearly maimed). His arrogant response was "Not if you didn't ask for it." I wonder how anyone would think it's okay to mutilate a body, disabling the person... If they did ask for it? Which I didn't... The other thing is, we talked about hormones. My period stopped after surgery. I wasn't anywhere near menopause, but the extreme breast reduction, (I went in for conservative lift and reduction), and the power-assisted liposuction, (that was supposed to be a tiny bit on the saddlebag to balance me from the breast surgery), was so super aggressive that most of the needed fat on my petite, muscular body was removed! Along with some muscle, and who knows what else. So Lesavoy, looking more at his red cowboy boots than at me, gets sidetracked with the hormonal thing. He was annoyed that I would suggest that changing one's entire metabolic system, (ya know, removing needed fat and muscle), would change hormonal balance. (Well, of course it does.) I get the feeling that plastic doctors don't like being challenged sbout the safety of liposuction in general, even though the assertions are true. So he pretty much wrote me off, and I came home and read about the woman whose ear he cut off in the lifestyle lift. I thought about how he teaches liposuction, and I worry for future generations. My friend and I call him "red cowboy boots" because he wouldn't actually look me in the eye or ackowledge my maimed body.
Dr. Lesavoy is a terrific surgeon and he's extremely ethical. If you don't need whatever you think you want, he just won't do it. You can count on him to tell you the truth. Dr. Lesavoy works quickly and expertly and does just beautiful work. I think that If I had any kind of medical problem, I think I'd turn to Dr. Lesavoy first because his medical knowledge is unsurpassed.
