A terrible story from a real patient in the United States was published at the Complaints Board, I share this with you the so you are informed of what bad plastic surgeons can do.
Most plastic surgeons are good and professional but if you choose the wrong one you could end up living a nightmare. Make sure you always see a qualified surgeon for any procedure you want to get performed.
I have always wanted a tummy tuck, ever since my children were little. I was left with a lot of flab and scars from different surgeries. I was very ashamed of the way my body looked, so I saved my money and finally had enough for the surgery .I went to a Plastic Surgeon at the Sadler Clinic (Dr. Vin) and talked to him about the work I wanted done. I had a knot in my right breast caused from prier breast surgery, I wanted that fixed also. He was to take the hard tissue out and put an implant in there and replace the other implant. Now I have a knot in my left breast. Even I have enough sense to know if I’m taking out an implant that has tissue attached to weigh it and make sure that one breast isn’t bigger than the other!
The nurse that worked for Dr. Chaney told me her friend had the tummy tuck procedure done by the Dr at Sadler Clinic and he really messed her up. She proceeded to show me her tummy tuck that Dr. Chaney had done for her, it looked good! Needless to say I chose Dr. Chaney to do my surgery. I had the surgery and went home for a week, during this week my left implant was up on my shoulder .I had to borrow a strap to push it down.
I also ran fever, and my stomach felt like a water melon, you could feel the liquid sloshing around in their. Also I had a dark rectangular patch of skin on my stomach (it looked as if someone had dropped an iron on me and burned the skin). I went back for my weekly visit and he drew several vials of blood out of my stomach and gave a prescription for some silvadine for the dark part on my stomach.
On the second visit I told him I was still running fever and my stomach hadn’t gone down any, The next thing I know he was cutting out the dark part of my skin and blood was running out of the hole he cut in my stomach. I was in shock; I didn’t know what was going on .The nurse told me she was making arrangements for me to be put back in the hospital because He thought I had Staff infection.
I spent eight days in the hospital, receiving heavy antibiotics for the staff while Dr. Chaney goes on vacation, although he had another Dr. CHECKING ON ME .The other Dr. was very nice I was scared and he told me that surely Dr. Chaney wouldn’t leave me like this that he would fix it. He didn’t know him very well because he could act like he cared less, He hasn’t called to check on me or to set up a repairing surgery.
I called him several times because of bleeding. He told me to go to the emergency room, which I did and I am now being sued for that amount.
After I got out of the hospital I had to wear a wound vac for eight months and lost my job and my insurance. I have gone thru very bad depression and he has yet to even feel bad about messing some ones body up so bad. I went to Tennessee for Christmas and my daughter set me up to see the Doctor that she works for He sent me to see a friend of his that does this kind of work he had to rebreed the wound in order for it to heal, even he said that something like this had happened to one of his patients but he cared about his reputation as a plastic surgeon and he made sure after she healed he repaired the scaring so she would get what she paid for, and would give him a good name as a surgeon but he also said that Dr. that practice in large cities don’t care because most people don’t push the issue.
Dr. Chaney hasn’t even called to check on me and his nurse sent out specials he was running in his office and then tried to retract them, How do you think that made me feel?
My Dream turned into a NIGHTMARE
I want to file a suit against him even if I have to do it myself.
Scary, isn’t it?
