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.
