Eye Face Institute - Botched lower lid surgery
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.
