I went to Dr. Mentz four years ago to have a facelift, eye lift and liposuction. I had consulted with three plastic surgeons and I thought Dr. Mentz seemed very competent and caring, plus he was written up in one of the Houston magazines as the best plastic surgeon in Houston. I had a facelift 17 years previously and loved it. My surgeon did a great job. I also had liposuction 11 years previously and loved the results also. One of the reasons I chose Dr. Mentz over my other doctor was that Dr. Mentz said he would do everything at the same time. My other doctor wanted to do it in two surgeries. What a mistake!!! The other reviewers are right, in that you sit in the waiting room forever and you rarely see Dr. Mentz - after surgery, it is the physician's assistant. That was not my main concern. The day of my surgery, it was very, very late by the time he showed up. The real problem I have is the results. First of all, I had a bulge under my chin that looked horrible, he did not lift my jowls and my chin line looked awful. He had liposuctioned 18 pounds but my pant size did not go down. When I went in three days after the surgery he said everything looked great. After a few weeks, he was telling me how well everything was healing and how great it looked. I told him I was not satisfied with bulge under my chin, my jowls and my liposuction, plus my eyes were blood red because I had dry eye. He said he didn't know what caused bulge under my chin and didn't know why he didn't do my jowls and he didn't liposuction my butt because sometimes it sags. He said he could go in and do additional work but it would be $1,000 for the operating room and $1,500 to do the additional liposuction. This, after being out $30,000. He did do additional surgery and I still had the bulge under my chin. After he did the additional liposuction, I went from a size 12 to a size 6. Why didn't he do that the first time??? I told him I still was not happy and he went in a third time. I still am not happy with anything I have had done. It was a nightmare!!! Also, he took too much skin out from my lower lids, that I have suffered from dry eye ever since. My opthamologist said he needed correct my eyes, which he did do some work on them. It's been over four years and my eyes still get very dry because they don't close enough. I personally think he was running so late by the time he got to me and was in a hurry to finish and get home. From my experience, I would not recommend Dr. Mentz to anyone.
