Dr. Ben Lee / Disabled me from life after bad abdominalplasy
Dr. Ben Lee is a doctor I chose to perform a mommy makeover which consists of a breast augmentation and an abdominalplasty at the same surgery. He seemed to be energetic full of life and a perfectionist.
He ill advised me on the augmentation by recommending a size to big for my structure. I told him I wanted it to look natural and not like I have had an augmentation done. That's not what I got. The initial surgery came out ok but too large as he led me to believe that by putting the implant under 2 muscles you loose more volume. The incision's are unbalanced. One is normal and small and unseen. The other one looks like a slash mark on my chest. The scar is not even up under my breast. The implants caused me so much discomfort and pain. I asked him about removing them and I had an apt. scheduled only to find out that they had charged me the price for putting me under anesthesia but they scheduled me for a local and he was not going to remove the capsule (the scar tissue that forms around the implant). I canceled my apt. and got my money back. He does not listen to patients.
The other surgery was an abdominalplasty where he removed too much excess skin and made my stomach like a tight drum. He also stitched my rectus muscles together which I did not need because I was already small in stature and only weighed 103 lbs. This tightness is so tight I cannot walk around very long. There is a constant tugging and tightness that it puts my body under constant stress. I started having breathing problems, shortness of breath because my diaphragm and organs are being squished. I am unsure how long I can survive like this. I am basically waiting to die so I can be out of my misery. I feel like he put the timer on and hurried thru the whole surgery to see how fast he could get it done. Also my lower abdomen incision is not even. It slants upward to the right about 1/4 to 1/2 inch higher then the other side. How does this happen? How come he is allowed to hurt people this way?
