Botched lower lid surgery

Eye Face Institute - Botched lower lid surgery
Eye Face Institute - Botched lower lid surgery
I went to see dr. Gill at the beginning of the year to have fat removed from under eye after failed fat transfer done elsewhere. he suggested retraction surgery as he stated I needed it in lower eyelids. I asked him many time if he was certain I needed that and he said I really did and he would do this to his family as he saw me as a family member. I trusted him and had scleral graft in lower lid with fat reposition. after a month my right eye was puffy and I told him it did no look good. he told me to come in and put steroid in my right eye that melted all my natural fat. its been 7 months and I am still losing fat all over my face it looks awful. I went back and he put 2 fillers in lower right eyelid- I soon started noticing that now I did have retraction as my eyes hurt and itched every morning and had to put ointment and eye drops all day long. he said he would fix my eyes with hard palate graft and that there would be no complications I trusted him again and now he completely ruined my eyes. left eye he lifted too much after lateral canthoplasty and right eye is not even. he lifted the inside corner of the lower lid too much that it does not look even at all. I look like a complete freak and when I contactated him he said they look fine and will improve, its been two months and no improvement on the contrary they look worst. I have cut all ties with him as I don't trust him to ever touch my eyes again. I am very depressed the way my eyes now look as they look very different from each other, one looking smaller than the other and not symmetrical at alli I look like a freak. please be very careful when hiring him to touch your eyes as he will try to sell you things you don't need and you will end up in the mess that I am in. I don't know if my eyes are even fixable now as I have been reading online and I don't see anyone having the issue I have at all. I don't really know how he got my eyes to look so destroyed when he is an eye doctor and that's the only reason I went to see him. my eyes have lost so much volume due to him also putting steroids in it. As time its moving I am now developing ectropion which is a condition where your lower eyelid separates from your eye. I will need to go see an specialist asap to see what can be done about this all as I get headaches on the daily basis and my vision is greatly getting affected as its blurry and not very clear. please believe me when I tell you to keep away I also believed all the comments and review about him and this happened to me. I can provide you with pictures of the before and after and your will see what I am talking about. This a nightmare that I did not deserve to be in just for trusting that he would leave me looking and feeling good. keep away from him. I was a beautiful person before all of this and now I have to wear glasses to hide myself from this horrible nightmare. I paid $7000 to get botched.

Botched Surgery

Hello people be careful when having surgery with Dr. Gill! I trusted him and believed and ruined my eyes! He only had to remove fat from previous fat transfer done elsewhere and I ended up with 2 botched surgeries that first one gave me retraction and second one gave me retraction, and uneven eyelids! My eyes are red all day long and hurt a lot ! I now have to live with his mistake and try to get the money to see if I can get this fixed and I can have a normal life again ! It is not fair that you trust a doctor, and he ruins you and moves on! The bad reviews on the internet always get deleted so please be careful ! I can send pictures of the horror that I now have to live with! He did not give me a refund as I asked for! Do not trust him as he will just ruin your life and will have not only physical issues With your eyes but most importantly they will hurt and be dry all the time !

I went to see dr harmeet Gill for repositioning of fat transfer done elsewhere! He stated I needed lower lid retraction surgery as my lower eyelids would go down with time and I would develop dry eyes problem if I didnt do it! I went 3 times to see him to make sure that I really needed it and to make sure I was not gonna have any complications and he assured me and my family that there was 0 chances of complications ! I trusted him as he is board certified eyelid surgeon. He charged me over $6300 and 1 month later after surgery I developed the retraction I did not have before ! Eyes had a lot of issues and they teared a lot and also hurt! And he also put cortisone injection to help with swelling after fat transfer and destroyed eye as I lost all my natural fat! I trusted dr Gill as he said he would do the same procedure to his family and he had mostly good reviews! He offered to do a revision and I was so stupid to trust him again and thats where things got out of control he has left my 2 eyes looking different in shape ! I have an ugly fold in right eye in the lash line! And the lid is very high and the contour is not there anymore ! It looks deformed! pulled very high so it looks slanted and went I went to see him a week ago he told me and my sister he would remove a stitch and eye would look normal and its not true it still looks the same! Right lower is higher than left lid and I look horrible ! Left lid is showing signs of Ectropion which I asked if there was any risks and he said no! I think I might have mild Ectropion in righ eye as it hurts a lot ! I am very distraught over this and I wish I never went to do anything with him ! He has butchered me! Please get a real doctor as I know have to try to see it there is a way to at least make my eyes look normal again! I can send pictures if you want ! I have asked for a refund to look for a new surgeon to do revision but he has declined !

User's recommendation: Please stay away from this doctor! I wish I did.
