NJ woman says plastic surgeon left her unable to blink

The Record, March 24, 2011
A Paramus, NJ plastic surgeon's negligence in performing cosmetic eye surgery has left a Bloomingdale woman unable to blink, an attorney for the patient alleged in state civil court Wednesday. Marilyn Leisz, the plaintiff, was not informed of the risks involved with surgery to remove excess skin from her eyelids, her attorney Roy Konray of Rahway told jurors seated before state Superior Court Judge Ralph L. DeLuccia Jr. in Paterson during opening statements in Leisz's medical malpractice case. What's more, defendant Paul Parker, MD, should have known not to perform the procedure on her at all because there was no excess skin left to remove from her eyelids, the attorney argued. Leisz is suing the doctor for negligence and is seeking unspecified monetary damages.

I can image how she must feel. You attempt to look your best to continue in a job market and a society where youth and pleasant features are valued and find that the very person who should be helping you caused undo stress and even physical harm. Shouldn't disfigurement by a surgeon be treated the same as having acid splashed on your face. In this case it is even worse because there was a trust and a belief that he would cause no harm. Horray for her for standing up knowing that she would be critizi.ed for seeking a surgical option to maintain a youthful appearance
