Dr. Morris Ritz / Plastic Surgery

1 Melbourne, Victoria, Australia Review updated:

Dr. Ritz should not be practising. he really hurt a friend of mine. He doesn't care about women's consent and is an ambitious, greedy snake in the grass who should be a used car salesmana and not a plastic surgeon

    Dr. Morris Ritz is very possibly a sociopath. He presents a image of a person who is very sweet and compassionate but he does very sick things that are way out of most peoples idea of "normal". He is extremely sneaky and manipulative. He gets away with things that most doctors wouldn't. He doesn't care who he harms in the process of this and his behavour is extremely damaging. Please be very careful because this man will do anything to cover his tracks and lie and deceive- he does NOT care what authority he lies to- He will defile your medical file, alter it, remove entire procedures and say they never occured. We must help each other because he has done this to more than one, more than two, more than three women- and surprise, surprise!_ there's noone who has enough evidence- because Dr. Ritz has destroyed the evidence and women are left looking like fools while Dr. Ritz blames their "sanity" for his own sickness. DR. RITZ IS A VERY DISTURBED AND CLEVER MAN- A bad combination!

    Dr. Morris Ritz has been very difficult for women to come out about because of his dangerous personality disorder. He lies to his lawyers, his lies on women's files, he lies to authorities, and no doubt he lies to himself, the last being the most dangerous thing of all. He confines his abuses to things that are really very WEIRD, in fact so WEIRD- like doing to someone's face what "he" thinks they need without asking- and all the other sick and perverted stuff he does, which is so abnormal that he convinces himself it really wasn't anything. But he obviously does know he's done wrong, other wise he wouldn't spend all the time he does covering his tracks, altering files, and basically not caring what he does to others as long as he survives. And there are more and more women who will come out about this man's abuse of them !! He is truly a very disturbed human being. Stay away from Dr. Morris RItz from The Melbourne Institute of Plastic Surgery

    Dr. Morris Ritz plastic surgeon was the subject of a very good piece of investigative journalism on sixty minutes on Sunday night. A mother of five who had been obsessed with Make Over TV shows, where lots of procedures are done at the same time, asked Dr. RItz if it would be possible for him to do the same for her. He said yes, and she underwent an 8 hour operation that included lipsuction, breast augmentation and a variety of other procedures. When she woke from the anaesthetic, the nurse was holding her breast which was turning black. Dr. RItz poked it with a needle and said it would be fine. That was the last this woman ever saw of her doctor. Another doctor put her into emergency at a different hospital and day by day, the surgeons there had to cut away pieces of both her breasts to prevent a life threatening infection from spreading. She was extremleey brave and showed the audience her body. She says she feels like a freak. In the public chat room afterwards, a large number of women chatted online about Dr. Morris RItz. One was a nurse who had worked for him and said he was the most negligent surgeon she'd ever known, and considered reporting him. Others reported finding Dr. RItz to be rude and arrogant and never available for any kind of after care which he always left to his nures. Others reported that he underplayed the extent and pain of real recovery from procedures. Another woman, who was, . in the end 'Happy" with results was nevertheless very traumatised by the doctor who did procedures on her that he neverj discussed with her in advance. He also made bogus entries in her medical file, as to conversations about these non-consensual surgeries, to cover his tracks. This man is suffering from some kind of VERY serious mental illness of personality disorder. He is a pathological liar, and blames his victims, his patients, his nurses, for all his mistakes---- STAY AWAY FROM THIS MAN

    I saw a segment on Dr. Ritz on sixty minutes Australia called The Beauty Trap. It was on 27th August channel 9 and it was very distressing, the way he treated (or did not treat!) his patient, Kerry Mullins.

    Dr. Morris Ritz, plastic surgeon from Melbourne Australia, who is a part owner of the Melbourne Institute of Plastic Surgery and The Stonnington Day Surgery is a liar. He lies to our medical boards, he alters womens files when he is has done something "wrong", he mutilates their bodies (see Sixtyminutes and the story about Kerry Mullins. A friend of mine wrote to Dr. Ritz's surgery after that segment aired, and received a response telling her that the story was "biased". Yes, well, we are not stupid- lots of tabloid television is "biased", however any one, and especially any woman who saw Kerry Muillins KNEW she was telling the truth and wanted to help other women. The email to my friend also said that Kerry Mullins was offered help from them, but chose instead to go to the public system, Oh Please- Even his own PR or finance manager can't get his facts right- It was ANOTHER doctor at Dr. RItz's OWN surgery who "raced" Kerry Mullins to the public system, so that she didn't die!! And when is potentially dying, most intelligent people know that they MUST go to the public system. He emailed my friend that the "Melbourne Institute of Plastic Surgery" "prides itself" on its follow up and patient care- that seems to be yet another "Corporate" motto on Dr. RItz's own website- I guess they teach all the staff to "speak the speak" ... Why don't men like Dr. MOrris Ritz and all the other excessively wealthy plastic/cosmetic surgeons just come out and ADMIT that they are running BIG BUSINESS and business ethics are not the same as medical ethics. Business ethics highlight "advantages" and play down risks. That's not the ethics of medicine!!

    Morris RItz is a very dangerous plastic surgeon. Google Kerry Mullins and find out why. And she is not the only woman to have her life wrecked by this Australian Plastic Surgeon who does what he wants to women, when he wants, and should not be practising at all... He also thinks that his money will stop Australian women from protecting each other... Ergo, he has clearly now spent a lot of money trying to clear the TRUTH ABOUT HIM FROM THE WEB--- Look closely, and you will see that none of the positive stuff online about him, or the stuff he has supposedly "written" is by him-- He has just paid someone --- obviously a lot of money, When women tell the TRUTH about this slimy man, he belittles his patients and ex patients even more like the BULLY his is--- Money can't save you from US Dr. RItz, the more you try to silence the truth, the more we will fight, You stamp on a bird, something smaller than you-= Expect it to get angry, --=- Anyone thinking of using this surgeon, do a thorough THOROUGH INTERNET SEARCH AND LOOK FOR THE TRUTH,

    Yes. I have a picture of Dr. Morris Ritz. It's about 20 years old, which is pretty funny! I mean, you know... You'd think he might see the inherent risks in subjecting a potential customer to the real image of him as opposed to the one he still flaunts on his website...Yes, well, what can one expect from such a human being?

    Human beings make mistakes, and doctors are no different. They are all far from perfect. However, there is something seriously wrong with a system that awards a woman 'around about' four hundred thousand Australian dollars for a lost breast, when losing that breast had nothing whatsoever to do with her ill health. When a perfectly healthy young woman goes to a 'doctor' for advice about a breast lift, and that 'doctor' urges her to give up breast feeding and come back in a couple of weeks for a 'mum's makeover'- then there is something seriously wrong with that 'doctor'. He or she is no longer a health practitioner. I am not a medical doctor, but common sense tells me that you should not operate on a woman who has recently given up breast feeding. I mean, hello? How smart do you need to be? Her ducts would be open, for one thing. She would be feeling emotionally vulnerable as well. In addition, the woman had just given up smoking and the medication she was taking for that, added to her recent stopping of breast feeding, were deemed as two factors that were dangerous for her in this situation. And something the good doctor should have known. Now, we all make mistakes. But most people - when they make errors such as these- that have such devestating consequences on the lives of others- 'learn' something. But not Dr. Ritz. He went straight out and flogged himself on national tv as the macrolane (lunch time boob jab) king of Melbourne. He never stopped to ask himself if Kerry Mullins or any of her family and/or friends might see this segment. AND, he continues to advertise himself as some grand old king of breast surgery 'advice' all over the internet- I mean, the surgeon who was responsible for the tragic death of Lauren James due to liposuction complications, AT LEAST has publically vowed never to perform these operations again- despite having done thousands of them, very successfully, in the past...Actions make a person's character, and the fact that the Australian Medical Board does NOTHING to stop this man, is indicative of what a BACKWARD place we still are, in so many respects!

    Jason, what is YOUR problem? If your name is 'honest' then you are a man, yes? So what are you doing up here commenting on women's experience wiith this doctor? I mean, I am a male, and I wouldn't claim to know why someone might do these things, that yes - may appear 'odd' on the surface, but then who knows the full story? There is a huge power inbalance between male doctors and their female patients, and all kinds of things can occur in these power inbalances that might seem 'odd; to outsiders. I can't comment on anything to do with this type of thing, because my wife's experience was only to do with surgery. And it's not even that the surgery was so terrible- It simply took much longer to recover from than she was led to believe, and she was in a LOT more pain that she was led to believe would occur. In fact, she was in AGONY and so I took her to another doctor. And surprise, surprise- that doctor told us that Dr. Ritz should NOT have performed THIS number of procedures in one go- exactly what was said by the expert witnesses in the Kerry Mullins case. And so, maybe you should just write about your own experiences and leave women alone. Using the 'you are crazy' title, shows what a nasty little misogynist you are, so it's no wonder you support Dr. Ritz! I mean, why is it that so many men call women 'crazy' when they simply stand up for each other and for their friends, and for other women. Oh, and by the way, you say that you hope Dr Ritz can help Kerry Mullins- Kerry Mulins does NOT WANT Dr. Ritz's help for many good reasons! Kerry Mullins has m erely paved the way for other women to come out and comment and yes, lots of women are supporting Kerry Mullins. I am glad you had a great experience with Dr. Morris Ritz as obvioulsy he has a lot of experience, and no doubt therefore, many happy patients. But that does not mean that anyone who has a negative experience is lying or setting up multiple profile- not at all. If a man with this kind of money and power lies to medical boards, as I would completely believe- then why shouldn't women support each other via what you call 'social media'? And good on sites like these for given some power of voice for the protection of women. You should stick to writing about your own experience and quit demeaning women, you jerk! I am furious with this creep for what pain my wife went through and all the time she had to take off and the money we lost because of it- All because she trusted a very experienced and highly qualified doctor who minimised the pain and the length of recovery and 'could' easily have put her in the same position as Ms. Mullins. You should know that medical insurers are loathed to ever pay out and settle out of court/. They will not do it unless they know they will lose. And you can't sue and win in medical negligence simply because you get an infection. That is part of medicine. Kerry Mullins won because multiple expert witnesses (ie: Other pleastic surgeons)- testified that Dr. Ritz put her under enormous risk by doing an eight hour operation of multiple procedures each of which should have been done in isolation. If you think that is a man who cares about women, then you should think again. I mean, the fact is that other doctors and surgeons were horrified because no good doctor would put any patient under one operation that long- unless it was to save a life! This man put a perfectly healthy woman under a ninei hour operation and she came out very sick. She is deformed and suffered depression and my wife is not deformed but she did suffer depression/ And you - who ever you are- are just a JERK for 1. Even 'suggesting' that Kerry Mullins would want Dr. RItz's help and 2. For demeaning the other women for sharing their experiences. And what is your motivation for writing MULTIPLE comments about one doctor? You havne't been harmed by him, so WHY??? Is he paying you, or do you have some kind of homosexual crush on him? I mean, one comment to defend him - maybe= but you are taking a very unhealthy interest in what is essentially women's business and commenting on issues YOU know nothing about. And creating nasty titles for your pathetic comments. You are a loser! LEAVE WOMEN ALONE TO COMMUNICATE WITH ONE ANOTHER AND DON'T USE NASTY VERBAL COMMENTS TO DEMEAN VULNERABLE WOMEN WHO HAVE SUFFERED AT THE HANDS OF DR MORRIS RITZ- A VERY RICH AND POWERFUL OWNER OF A PRIVATE COMPANY THAT TURNS OVER MONEY LIKE A MULTINATIONAL AND NOT A MEDICAL PRACTISE- Can't you use your brain and figure out for yourself that if someone was defaming and lying about Dr. Morris Ritz, he would have ample money to sue them. Maybe he doens't because you can't sue someone for defamation if they are telling the truth?? Think about THAT

    @Marc61 Thanks, Marc61, I'm sorry to hear about your wife's horrible experience. He likes to overdo it with his patients and I was one of them. I wish I'd never gone to see him. Thank you for your protective stance towards women. I now have to have a procedure done one at a time with a decent surgeon, cause I'm cash poor and he made me look worse after the 4th surgery he talked me into. God bless you, Barbara

    Dr. Morris Ritz is not to be trusted. He did four! yes four surgeries on me. Before the 4th, I looked 45, after the 4th in which he said I needed fat in my forehead, I thought I knew what he was talking. He did things around my mouth and made it worse. The fat was supposed to give me a smooth forehead but now it's lumpy. The mini facelift consisted of chains of cones holding things up, only a large percentage of the cones did not dissolve, and the addition of fat made everything stand out. I was pretty three years ago in 2015, but now I look unattractive with scars on either side of my mouth made worse and a lumpy stumpy forehead. This has led to me avoiding people. I feel like a freak and I trusted that man!

    I'm one of Dr. Morris Ritz's lab rats. Is there anyone out there who would like to join me in a class action suit against him? Shine Lawyers is the best one to approach. Please contact me through this site. We had a class action suit for Premarin in North America, so there is no reason why we can't have one against the plastic surgeon.
