Thoughts on the face dental?

I recently spoke to some people who had surgery with Dr. Lee at The Face Dental. Please be careful. He has left patients on read when they told him about problems they were having after surgery with him. He gave some patients tmj and over shaved someone's jaw line causing them to get implants. After a male patient asked for revision because Dr. Lee's surgery caused him to have a lock jaw, Dr. Lee told him he can get a revision for half the price of the first surgery... not even a free revision even though it was his fault for that. Dr. Lee even went against the surgical plan talked about during consultation and increased the millimeters during the surgery. He said he would move a certain amount of millimeters for double jaw surgery with a patient but after speaking with another surgeon, the patient found out he moved 4 millimeters more than said. Another girl had double jaw surgery with him and she had jaw problems before but Dr. Lee did not mention it during the consultation or even was not knowledgeable on how to fix it but he still operated on her. She had to get a revision later because of his mistake as it caused more problems. Many patients are planning to get revisions to fix the problem Dr. Lee caused and they have to spend double the price that they paid before. I know bad surgeries can happen at surgery clinics but at a clinic that specialized in only oral and maxillofacial surgery, problems from double jaw and face contouring surgery should not be happening. I just want to warn other people if you are thinking of Dr. Lee. It's at your own risk.

I’m sure some of what you said is true but the part about giving someone TMJ is not dr lee’s fault it’s actually a risk of orthoganathic surgery some people who never had it prior to the surgery can develop it after

Does TMJ cause jaw lock too? I just thought it was ridiculous to have to pay a revision fee to get surgery again when most surgeons in the US do it for free.

Haiiiiii. I haven't had surgery with Dr. Lee before but I was considering him for genioplasty/cheekbones and maybe double jaw. TFD was one clinic that I was thinking about going to along with EverM and EU.
I searched on this forum for people who have had surgeries with him and reached out to past Korean patients on whatsapp and there many mix reactions. People have told me through PM that they were unsatisfied with their face afterward and that some developed problems. I don't know the links but people have posted about TFD on here before.

I had surgery with him and I had to get a revision because I was not able to close my mouth. The nurse has been very rude to me and when I asked to stay in the hospital a bit more.. he refused. I almost died when trying to get back home, I was not able to breath. Worst experience in my life. I don’t recommend getting twojaw in Korea.

Yes I agree I see a lot of unsatisfied people on that forum some who are not happy; which I can understand. But these doctors are not god .I see on realself a lot of satisfied people also.when you are traveling halfway across the world for surgery it makes it even more difficult to fix any problem when you have returned home. Asian culture is also a lot different to Western culture.

Literally had my surgery 3 days ago at TFD....... I love the result even tho I’m super swollen right now
I wish I’d met dr Lee earlier so I didn’t have to go thru several procedures until he fixed my face
