Eyes Wide Shut: New Jersey Woman Is Suing Plastic Surgeon After Procedure Leaves Her Unable To Close Her Eyes!!
You. Can’t. See. Me….can you??
Bad plastic surgery doesn’t just happen to Sly Stallone: a NJ woman says an eyelid procedure gone wrong is the reason she can no longer close her eyes. Marilyn Leisz is suing Dr. Paul Parker for negligence for her eyes-stuck-wide-open surgery. “All the favorite things I used to, like tennis, racquetball, swimming, horseback riding, bike riding, skeet shooting, gardening, I can’t do those things,” Leisz told CBS.
Leisz admits that she had had several plastic surgery operations prior to the eyelid operation. She said she went to Parker, a Bergen County plastic surgeon, to correct bumps on her eyelids from a cosmetic procedure performed by another doctor. But the married mother of two claims she wasn’t warned of the risks, and was told later by another doctor that she wasn’t a good candidate for this surgery because she had had too many other procedures. Now, she can’t fully close her eyes, even when she sleeps: “…To blink I really have to really squeeze my eyes to…fully close my eyes.” She has to use gel at night, and a vaporizer so she doesn’t scratch her eyes; she is losing her eyesight as well.
In the pantlheon of botched plastic surgery procedures, this is definitely up there with four breasted lady. But maybe this is some sort of existential crisis made real—after all, some might say that hell is being in a room with other people without ever blinking.
This is f*cked up, but maybe this will teach her to be happy with who she is and stop chasing a new look with the knife!
Is there anything about yourself that you want to change so bad that you will risk plastic surgery going wrong??
