i finally had enough money for a facelift. i am 61 and wanted this very badly. i interviewed 7 surgeons and DR. SCOTT BRENMAN and he said somethings i wanted to hear. i wanted to have fat grafting and i believed him when he said it could possibly last for 3 years.i had a terrible feeling about his office manger..a real strong gut feeling. i rue the day i didn't leave because of just HER! i just feel sick about this..it cost me every $ i had..$15,400..the most expensive doctor i had seen. i prepared myself for my adventure and was loking forward to the surgery. my neck looked good, the full face that i wanted so badly went away in a few months and i saw that my eyes needed to be touched up. 10 days after the surgery after an appt. with him, i developed terrible terrible pain in my right inner ear down deep. i tried to get him all weekend and he did not call or write back..i made it to monday and went i called the office manager she just complained about not having heat in her home that day. finally she got him and he had no advice for my pain..thank god i was able to find help online. after the surgery i wanted to stay overnite to make sure i would be alright. he recommended one hospital over another and i was given very little help after the day of surgery. i would buzz for a nurse and no one would come. i was placed in a room with a lady with pneumonia. 2 months after the surgery, i was beginning to see the results. i saw that my face had lost alot of volume, my eyelids still had skin hanging down and there were puffs and lines at the top of my cheeks under my eyes. i just had my 5th checkup. when he walked in he didn't seem to know why i was there. i asked him why i never can get him and he said that he was always in surgery. i feel particularly bad because, he doesn't even know me...he only knows me through his office manager, the one i have to go through to get an answer from him...she does not like me and for all i know is jealous of me..she has a very strong attachment to this doctor. i do know that in 3-4 months (8.5 months post surgery) if he does not help me with completion of this surgery, i am stuck. all my money for this is gone. why should i go to talk to another plastic surgeon if all my money is gone. i had great hopes and i liked this man before the surgery...if there is anything wrong in an office..people or policies...leave. i am so sorry that i didn't. another office warned me about him..but, i thought it was just because they wanted me to go to them.....i am just sick...this is all i think about.

dear midge.. i wrote that after my last appt. my next appt. is july 29th which is 2 weeks short of 8 months. all of the above is the same. i now have one added feature which is a lump on my chin about the diameter of a quarter...i showed it to him and there was no answer.. i guess he has no motivation to help me since he has already been paid in full. at this point he can no longer say it hasn't been enough time. if he refuses to help me look better...the eyes..left extra skin on each upper eyelid and a raised area at the top of my cheeks under each eye...very aging, which is very aging and tired looking, the lump on my chin, my neck which is letting go and the lack of volume..it's almost like i need a new facelift altogether..i can't do anything until somehow, someday i have some more money. if he acts the way he did last time, i am going to just walk out. i am no good at confrontations..this whole experience had me very ill at times. i briefly spoke to another surgeon and he couldn't believe that dr. brenman said fat grafting could last 3 years. i could go on about other thing...basically it's having an unfinished result...he offered to help and the next appt. he said he never said that...he also told me i had a short incision facelift which i didn't...i should no where i was cut and he also told me he used a pre-existing scar to do my neck which he did not...there was no new incision...i have had this face for alot of years and i know where i have been cut or not! isn't this an amazing story!!! one last thing that happened and it was dragged out for months by "joanie"...the hospital had raised it's prices..they had me sign an aggreement for $15,400 and then tried to say.."oh, we didn't know they had raised their price so I SHOULD PAY IT! WHAT! that went on for months...i couldn't find much in the way of reviews on the computer..just a generic bar graph..which was positive. if anybody beside you is listening, please do not go to him..i just feel horrible that this happened. i was so excited for my upcoming adventure. thanks for writing and listening.please write if you any more questions of what i have learned from this.

well, this is a brief continuation pf my above plastic surgery experience. i had my going into the eight month check-up yesterday. i had to wait about 45 minutes in the examination room...why don't they just let you sit in the lobby, so at least you can converse with your friend..after all that has happened, i was SO nervous and about to cry. so i began ayuvedic breathing (yoga) to try to calm myself down..i was deep breathing for quite awhile. when he finally emerged through the door, i was very meek and admired his tan (isn't that bad for your skin dr.b? i showed him the lump on my chin, probably some remnant from the fat graftof course he said nothing about what it could be...i just made an appt. with the very nice dermatologist...dr. b. is not nice...i try to make light of things and he is very quiet (probably hates me). sometimes i think of something while he is talking and interrupt so i won't forget my though~~his eyes flash and his skin grows taut. well to my shock, he IS going to help me with the above mentioned issues..lateral browlift..lifts the eyes and hopefully gets rid of the puffs on my cheeks. he will then perform a second fat graft.....omg....i hope he didn't read my diary and is out to get me..tee hee...so my story will continue...he still refuses to answer a message..always have to go through joanie,,,,my tone of voice is not hers. my friend always takes me to the office. she treats him like a cabbage. she simply ignores him.till next time..wish me luck!

hello there, well, 8 months have gone by..two weeks ago, dr. brenman agreed to to do a lateral lift, fat graft and lips..although he did not write lip augmentation on the plan & did not do it. he and "joanie" said they knew nothing of it and did not do it!!i can can only wish that the fat graft stays..that makes the the most immediate improvement...but based on the first time effects i won't hold my breath. after this again denying he said something when he didn't (liP)...like i am making this up, i just can take this again! after this i must fine another ps. my very good primary doctor has a reference for me. stay tuned..there is more to come but my head is killing me from this lateral lift today.

well, i will sit down and write to you all a little bit today with ice paks on my head. i just wish i would have had someone like me to guide me through this mess. as i told you last night, dr. brenman never wrote 'lip augmentation' on the paper of things to be done...what did i know? i thought that was included under fat graft. well the surgery was over and there was no lip augmention with fat. of course today, he said (through dear joanie, i might add) that it would cost....$1800.00 in his office....WAT????????? yesterday. the mid-face revision was '$1400'...the other week i asked him how much future fat gafts in the offic would be ( so i would know)...he said "$1100.00. that would be in the office with harvesting of the fat...today "JOANIE" says it has to be done in the hospital.....my head is spinning...i almost lose it....and then he says $1800 for lips and $1100 for the whole face. you know they must think i am really stupid...but, you know what my students out there...i am not even close to stupid and as soon as i get these clips out in 13 days..it is adios to him forever...i really do hope whoever is reading all of this,,tell me if this has helped you! this adventure with scott a. brenman is not over yet, so stay tuned. in 3 weeks it is of to another ps for $400 lip (do you believe?) and later for the future..if i am still around and want to look nice...a new p.s quest...i still can't believe i paid sticker price, retail for this jerk...did i tell you how he didn't release me from the hospital till 10:00 the next night...SAID HE WAS IN SURGERY!!...but, came all dressed up....who has surgery at night anyway?? bye now, robin

maybe you can only type a few words...well, keep your eyes and ears open when considering plastic surgery..don't believe everything the doctor says or for that matter..the computer.

this doctor could not speak to a patient because, maybe he was too busy getting his nails manicured, his new muscles spray tanned and his perfect premature white coif fluffed and glistened.

Dr. Brenman screwed me up also. Had surgery two years ago and my neck has these bands and looks worse than before. Also, I now have a twitch otherwise called hemifacial spasm on the right side of my face. Dr. Brenman kept saying that it was because of a dental infection which is not true. He refused to do anything. Joanie called and said "he cannot help you, go to a neurologist." Well I did and had to have MRI at Jefferson. I have smooshed nerve (probably from him) and my Dr. wants me so see surgeon about it. I am scared to death. I sent Brenman copies of some of these reviews I have now seen and also about the hemifacial spasm. No response. Could care less. Boy did I make a mistake. I may now have to have surgery to correct this = I am scared to death. Don't ever go to him. He is not a nice person. Biggest mistake I ever made. I should have gone to Jefferson. When I get the money, I will have to have someone look at my neck. I am so disappointed and scared.!

Brenman botched a very simple lipo and I now need extensive fat grafting, which is not permanant by the way & he wants me to pay for it!!!
Basically it looks like i was bitten by a shark on my back! I am disfigured. Another PS told me he had barely touched my abs and over lipo'd my back. It looks weird. thin back, fat front. Brenman is a cold & heartless person and his office manager is the same. There were soo many signs that I ignored. Like the fact that the office is filthy. I was soo excited to get this procedure that I've been waiting for for 15 years that I was blind to soo many things. Even the receptionist has a nasty disposition, probably because they are tired of so many complaints. PLEASE STAY AWAY!! HE WILL TEMPT YOU WITH A LOWBALL PRICE ON LIPO & YOU WILL PAY 3x as MUCH TO CORRECT HIS MISTAKES.

this is just awful..this gives me the creepy crawlies...there are three of us telling about our horrible experience with him...there is no way to really know about him until you sign your life away to him...it just made me sick to hear what happened to you. your words are my words about him not knowing what he is doing, not caring, selfish and only interested in the money and his office manager from HELL. there are three of us now...i can have pictures of the bald spots he left and messed up right cheek, and chin lump...is there someway we can have a class action suit and sue him for malpractice? this is not objective this is plain to see...just terrible..so sorry, robin

BREAST AUGMENTATION W/ A LIFT 3RD REVISION IS THE BEST ONE & A FULL TUMMY TUCK.
I absolutely love Dr. Tracy Hankins and all of his staff that I have had experience with. I am grateful for this experience.The kindest, most professional staff Ive ever had the pleasure of meeting. Thank you so much dr. Hankins 4 the sexy, flat & rock hard abs that you gave me. I had a TT & muscle tightining & OMG! the results are AWESOME!! all of the stretch marks & extra saggy skin are gone. dr Hankin & all of his staff deserves more than A+ they are the best, the results speaks louder than my words. You are the best. I also got under the muscle HP silicon with a lift & OMG! I'm 30+ & they look like when I was 20 years old. Dr. Hankins & all of his staff treated me like a family & it made me feel so comfortable. I recommended him 2 my family,friend & everyone I know & to everyone thinking about getting a plastic surgery.
