The Center for Plastic Surgery was recommended to me by a friend of mine who goes to another doctor there. This doctor was booked so I scheduled an appointment for Botox and Juvederm with Dr. Flynn who had openings. Long story short...the day of my appointment he had to take a break between injecting my upper lip and lower lip with the Juvederm because I was going to pass out. While giving me a break, his nurse through away the syringe with the remainder of the Juvederm that he was going to inject in my lower lip. When he returned to the room, he was shocked that his nurse threw it away and told me that I would not be able to get my lower lip done. He told me that I did not need it anyway. He gave me a $125 discount for the amount that was thrown away. Well, it was very evident the following day that I did need my bottom lip injected for symmetry. I called the next working day to schedule and clearly explained that I would pay for the portion that was thrown away (the discounted portion). On the day of my appointment, Dr. Flynn refused to inject the amount which was thrown away unless I paid for another FULL SYRINGE. I attempted to explain that this was his responsibility but he became threatening and refused to hear me. When I then attempted to show him that the Botox he injected did not work, he stormed out of the room telling me, "I'm done talking with you." I cannot believe how immature and unprofessional this "surgeon" acted. Interesting enough, I received a phone call a half hour later from his receptionist stating that Dr. Flynn reconsidered and would give me a free syringe of Juvederm. Obviously I declined. I would never go back to this doctor and I hope that this message prevents someone from having a horrible experience as well. I should have known from my first interactions with him... I had to go to another doctor to "even out" my lips. Please carefully interview him prior to committing to any procedure. On a side, the other doctors at this facility are very good.

    Oh my gosh. If only I had researched Dr. Flynn before going to him. I paid for a Botox injection which had absolutley no effect. I have had it a couple times before with excellent results so I know it works on me. When I went for a follow up two weeks later with this quack, he told me he would not re-do the Botox but that he would give me a "good deal" on an eye lift. PLEASE...talk about a scam. This guy needs to get rid of the hair piece and stop trying to look like Bruce Jenner. Thank GOODNESS I did not go to him for anything permanent! Thank you for your post and I'm sorry you had a bad experience too!

    I have had the opposite of you ladies(?). Dr. Flynn has been a wonderful surgeon to me. Many Doctors do not spend enough time with their patients and rush in and out, don't explain what they want to do and the details of the procedure. Dr. Flynn did and has with me. From my experiance, you either feel comfortable with your Doctor or you don't. It is like many things, some people are good canidates for certain procedures and others are not. The Doctor only has your Palet to work with. However I agree, when someone needs a redo there should be some give and take. Try to make the patient happy. I know that with my breast implants (done by another doctor) at certain times of the month they are a bit uneven. I beleive this to be a natural process.Please be realistic...Sometimeswomen bring in Playboy pictures and expect to look like these perfect AIRBRUSHED models.
    As far as what the Doctor looks like. I believe "WHATEVER MAKES YOU FEEL HAPPY ABOUT YOURSELF."Who are WE to judge..We are there for the plastic surgery and try to make ourselves feel better...RIGHT????

    Hi
    I also had a horrible experience with Dr William Flynn.
    He performed a mini face lift that has caused me years of embarrassment. Seven years later I continue to struggle with the damage created.
    I spend an enormous amount of time researching procedures that will conceal his work. I do not have the finances to correct all these problems.

    Aside from that he also performed the wrong procedure on my ears which also created additional deformity.He refused to reimburse me fpr doing wrong procedure and I am left with a hard lesson.
    I feel so stupid for allowing him to do surgery on me.

    That's funny seems like none of you have the sense to do anyhting about it. I am going to kill my surgeon and anyone who steps in front of me. 2 months of pure torture and still no answer. No one has the right to ruin another persons life. These priestly healers. a.k.a. surgeons made the oath to Hippocrates to honor him and assits fellow man regardless of anything. Dont be surprised when you see me make headlines as the first sickhead to kill a surgeon for incompetency. I tore my pectoralis major tendon and part of my long head bicep. Bench pressing. 2 monts later still [censor]ed. This problem needs to be fixed asap and every doc I saw was like just wait a few months. Yeah no arm movement, strength, or symmetry. The [censor]ing tendons and myabe other things were torn. I make an appointment for an mri. I show up only for the clinic to tell me they cant do the mri. Finally I get an mri in another city. I do it and turns out that the mri was not at the right location along with it not being readable. The indians [censor]s that work there know nothing. You cant even understand them and when I told them my location of the injury they did a chest mri instead. I told the [censor] that I tore my pec near the arm pit and should/bicep. So in the end all the things that I did were significant enough for me to be offended and thats why I'm planning something big. Really big.. I plan to get rid of [censor]..People who get paid alot of money to [censor] other people over and continue doing so. Grow some balls and seek justice yourself. Just like the our ancestors did in the fertile crescent. Enjoy
