Dr. Robert E. Levine This Doctor Needs To Take Surgery Classes Beverly Hills, California
Since I was undergoing this necessary surgery, we agreed on some minor cosmetic improvements. These, too, were a disaster. Without advising me, Dr. Levine had a 2" cut made in my abdomen and he removed fat strips and placed them under my eyes. I had no unusual under-eye hollows, but I now have 2 different sized pillowy fat pouches under each eye -- worse than what people pay a plastic surgeon to remove! Thus, I emerged with a new deformity. Worse yet, they are difficult to remove since after 3 weeks they have integrated with a patient's own blood supply and tissues.
It made no sense for Dr. Levine to place fat strips under my eyes. First off, there was a stem cell fat graft surgeon who joined him in this surgery so he should have used minute amounts of liposuctioned fat for the delicate under-eye area. Fat strips are used for creating volume for places like re-shaping abs or the buttocks. In addition, the deep depression=like holes at the end of my eyes where possibly fat strips could have been used, were entirely ignored.
I also emerged with other complications and problems following his surgery. My right pupil is larger and does not dilate. The shape and size of my eyes are less symmetrical. The right eyebrow ended up higher, as did the space between the eye and the eyebrow. His surgery was a disaster, but, even worse, my eyes cannot tolerate more surgeries. I paid Dr. Levine $10,000 and ended up with more pain, more problems, and absolutely more aesthetically deformed.
