Dr Lyle Back / Plactic Surgeon / Extreme scars

1 Cherry Hill, NJ, United States Review updated:
Contact information:

After completing a year of chemotherapy I decided to treat myself to a face lift for a fresh start. The scars on the back of my neck were so horrible it took two additional z type scar reductions to look somewhat normal. This was so embarrassing I could hardly go out of the house. Dr Back claim that I changed my hairstyle (I am a male!!!) He messed up, then he lies.

Not to mention the severe complications I had in his surgi center. I had to go back in an hour later to have the incisions reopened because of swelling. Then he sent me home to another state with a friend after all the hours I was sedated.

This guy needs to find a new occupation.

    I agree with the complaint. Lyle Back is terrible. I agree that he does lie to clients, at least he lied to me.

    One year ago (3/11) I had plastic surgery – lipo to flanks, abdomen, inner thigh, hip area and buttocks (unconsented) performed by Dr. Lyle Back of Cherry Hill, NJ. Immediately I noticed irregularities – too much fat taken out on left side of body (flanks, butt and inner thigh) compared to right. Also, Dr. Back did something to my butt wherein he created a new/unnatural butt crease which caused my butt to drop and sag. This was never discussed with me nor did I consent to him doing this. Additionally, since the surgery I have an extremely difficult time sitting on hard surfaces – note that the incisions for my butt bleed out for over a month – 3-5 weeks longer than the other surgical sites. I also have daily pain at the lymph area next to the surgical site at the right inner thigh site.

    I never consented to have any fat removed from my buttocks. I previously had lipo 8 years ago and wanted only to have a little fat removed from the inner thigh, however, Dr. Back told me that the areas I have done before should all be touched up. Those areas were the inner and outer thigh, hips, flanks and abdomen. I consented to those areas - not my butt!!

    I have talked to Dr. Back on several occasions about my concerns. He kept telling me that it could take a year to see the final result. I am not at all happy with the results. My body is completely uneven and my butt is not repairable without extensive scarring. I have sought the opinion of 4 other PS in South Jersey and Philadelphia, all of which note the defects and state that lipo can take care of the abdomen and flanks, however, my butt is deformed. One dr mentioned fat grafting to fill in buttocks crease and the others felt it might make things worse. They all stated he should not have touched my buttocks as this sagging and dropping was likely to happen. I never expected anything to happen to my butt as I did not consent to work being done on my butt.

    I have been trying to work with him to correct the problem areas. We had a meeting in which he said he would do the revision lipo and fat grafting to the butt (at the time I was considering fat grafting until I was told it could make it worse than what it is) for no charge to me. Note the only paperwork I have states that for revisions, anesthesia and facility will be charged and dr’s fees may or may not be charged. He now wants to charge me $4200 to fix his mistakes. I paid $7000 already and did not get the benefit of any good work. Now he wants additional money to fix his gross negligence?

    Not only was the liposuction disastrous, leaving me with a deformed buttocks which cannot be fixed, along with the need for additional lipo to my abs and flanks, but Dr. Back’s treatment in the handling of my complaint was just plain egregious. Initially he verbally offered to fix all my problems at no to little cost. After our meeting he had his office manager, Kathleen, call me back with a quote of over $4, 200. He lied to me. He ruined my butt. Additionally, I still have dark scars in the pubic area which he failed top place high enough not to be seen in a bathing suit. Letting Dr. Back perform my plastic surgery was a huge mistake! Don't let it happen to you!

    December 20, 2016, Lyle Back performed a rhytidectomy at Sono Bello Body Contouring Center, 676 E Swedesford Rd #250, Wayne, PA 19087. Last several months I have been extremely depressed behind the entire Sono Bello, catastrophic. The only things that I wish to discuss are the several hypertrophic scars result from the facelift, plus I lost sixty percent of my hearing. Currently, I am taking injections for the keloids. The results are not good.

    I had breast augmentation July 4th of this year and Dr Back did a wonderful job. His staff are wonderful and it was a great experience. I'm glad I finally did it.
