Dr. Morris Ritz, from the Melbourne Institute of Plastic Surgery is responsible for one of the worst cases of Medical Malpractice in Australian Plastic/Cosmetic Surgery. A young mother of five went to him for a simple breast lift and he sold her a massive makeover. Only two weeks after this woman had ceased smoking and breast-feeding, Dr. Ritz put her under a very LONG operation, and performed multiple procedures, which resulted in such a severe infection that she had to undergo multiple additional operations in an emergency hospital.
She is now MINUS A BREAST, and severely disfigured in other ways. Her upper body has a massive cavity. Expert witnesses testified that Dr. Ritz should have performed each procedure separately. There were also increased risks with the medication she was taking to stop smoking that Dr. Ritz should have known about, and it was also deemed that he should have known that she was at increased with having just stopped breast feeding.
However, while Australian women were still ignorant of all of this, Dr. Ritz went on National Television promoting himself and his surgery (Yes- he is one of the OWNERS of his own extraordinarily wealthy day surgery, the Stonnington Day Surgery and THe Melbourne Institute of Plastic Surgery) as the Australian pioneers of Macrolane- the lunch time boob jab.
In addition, while another doctor who was implicated in the death of a patient as a result of liposuction complications, has expressed sorrow and vowed never to perform another liposuction- Dr. Ritz, in contrast has filled the internet with information about him being a breast surgeon one can "trust"- and as one of the great breast augmentation experts etc..., promoting himself in advice forums etc... in an attempt to cover the truth about his history with women's breasts.
This is a RIP OFF because A: He is very expensive and B: He is attempting to cover the truth and C: Has not done the right thing by consumers/patients by vowing NOT to practise this form of surgery. This is what the public should EXPECT - The 'other' doctor at the liposuction scandle has more integrity and much more honesty. He is not filling the web with articles and promotions about how great he is at liposuction. What RIGHT does Dr. Morris RItz, Melbourne Plastic Surgeon from Australia HAVE to RIP OFF WOMEN LIKE THIS- For full details on the whole, horrible TRUTH google Morris Ritz sixty minutes Kerry Mullins The Beauty Trap or if the link gets you through, go directly to http://sixtyminutes.ninemsn.com.au/7952219/the-beauty-trap
