Patient Praise:

“Dr Monasebian changed my life. I met with him a number of years ago to discuss liposuction on my very bulbous thighs and his work was amazing and transforming. He also suggested another area to consider very close to the thighs and guaranteed me it would be a very noticeable transformation and he was absolutely correct. I thank him in my mind, every day for changing my body to the body I had always dreamed of. Subsequently, I went back to him to evaluate the jiggly and flabby skin in my abdomen and his suggestion of a tummy tuck cured everything that was wrong with that area of my body as well. His work is fabulous and his bedside manner is even better. I am thrilled to call him ‘my plastic surgeon’.” —S.G.

    Slowly losing vision in the right eye.

    Also, I have been in chronic pain in my right eye, and I have been taping my eyes shut every single time I need to sleep, I am very stressed, and losing sleep due to the chronic pain, and the taping of the eyes.

    Also, taping when napping, and taping on the airplane, and being clever with sunglasses, when traveling is horrible.

    When I went back to Doctor Monasebian, after the surgery, for my first follow up and he removed the bandages, he immediately became nervous and jittery, and I said things don’t look and feel right. He was very rude, extra nervous, and I had not been to a 2nd, or 3rd follow up yet with him. So it wasn’t like I had been complaining, obviously he was already jumping the gun, because he knew he had already done something wrong. I even had a witness in the room for this follow up, my spouse.

    For the first surgery I was under general anesthesia, sleeping. For the second surgery I chose local anesthesia, awake, because he was supposedly correcting something, and since things didn’t go right for the first surgery, being under this local anesthesia I could watch what he was doing. Because I was awake, I was able to see that Doctor Monasebian did something very strange, he mashed down on my eyeball several times, and I thought, Im not a doctor, but this doesn’t seem normal. After checking with another plastic surgeon, I was informed that mashing down on the eyeball is not normal, and it is not something one must practice under any circumstances.

    After this surgery things were still not corrected, so I sought for advice from other plastic surgeon’s. One plastic surgeon had to pointe out to me, that I must tape my eyes shut, because Doctor Monasebian did not inform me, that my eyes were not closing properly, after his botched surgery. Thanks to this surgeon, I now know why my eyes were in chronic pain, and bloodshot all the time, because the doctor took off too much skin.

    Other problems that arose from the bad surgery.

    After surgery my eye was swollen like a baseball, and Doctor Monasebian said it was normal. Other surgeon’s said the eye will never swell like that, and obviously Doctor Monasebian didn’t know what he was doing.

    Right eye always dripping, Doctor Monasebian said that’s normal, other surgeon said, is he crazy?

    My eyes are still red and blood shot all throughout the day. Whenever I lay down on my right side, there is a sharp pain in my right eye.

    Soars and scabs around the eyes from taping them shut everyday.

    Another plastic surgeon evaluating the surgery said to me, “is Doctor Monasebian a real plastic surgeon?”
