worst doctor ever

I had eye surgery by Dr. Shorr a few years ago.i came in to have a eyelid lift. He suggested forehead lift and fat injections under my eyes to correct non existing hollows. Cost was very high, but he came highly recommended. Results were bad. it took almost 2 years for me not to look surprised, but still eyebrows are too high. I ended up with a pouch under one eye from fat injections. When asked him to remove it, he quoted me another outrageous price. After a few years, had it removed by another surgeon, cost me about 5000.00 to fix DR. Schorr's botched surgery.

5 Months - 5 Years - 15 Years. Which one is it?

When it comes to cosmetic surgery, don't bother. I went for a consultation for my upper eyelids. He told me I needed a forehead lift and would not do the surgery unless I had one. He was considered a world renowned ocular plastic surgeon, so I trusted his opinion. I had two other consultations with general plastic surgeons and they did not say I needed a forehead lift in order for the upper eyelid lift to be successful. Bottom line- don't believe it. I had the brow/forehead lift and it dropped back to it's original position after 5 months. Before I made my decision I asked him about how long does a forehead lift last? He told me it would last about 5 years and said that he had one patient who he had done 15 years ago and she still looked good. After 5 months, he told me he would do it again but I would have to pay for all of his costs. I was livid. The only comment his brilliant billing manager said was, that he never guarantees how someone will heel. Then why did he tell me the forehead lift would last about five years? What does that mean? My healing process was O.K. and I looked good for about four months. All I can say is don't fall for the sales pitch. He told me he did a lot of repair work on patients other doctors have botched up. I would like to know what doctor fixes his patients work. Please understand I was not expecting perfection, but I was mislead. He didn't offer me the option of having a forehead lift at a later date. He pinned me against the wall. It was costly, painful and was not necessary.
