He ruined my body! I had lipo of: abdomen, flanks, inner and outer thighs, inner knees, hips, and triceps done. He only took out a little over 1 liter for all those areas!! Several months later you could see how uneven my outer thighs and lower abs were. It was worse than before surgery. He scheduled no post op visits- not one. 8 years later I got the courage to have my body fixed and I went to Dr.Ashby! He fixed me! He did all the same areas accept the inner knees and triceps and took out 6.5 litres!!! He even Included absolutely free touchup. My outer thighs are completely even. I dropped from a size 12 to a size 5! He sculpted me and I look great!!! I had so many post op visits I can't even count. Dr Keiter told me that I was probably uneven Cuz I gained weight which I then informed him I weighed less then than before surgery! He said he could fix it for the cost of anesthesia! Ya right! Like I would let him work on me ever again! He shouldn't be practicing still. My lower abs are still a little uneven because of him. dr ashby did everything he could to fix dr keiters mistake- and they do look tons better. I wish I never met dr Keiter. Waste of money! It's like he didn't know what he was doing! So glad I found dr. Ashby!!!!

Do not use Dr. Keiter. He misled me and made me believe that my insurance company wouldn't approve the surgery when all they wanted was more information so they could approve it. Example: He refused to have me get a mammogram which I would have happily gotten (particularly since my regular doctor wanted me to have one.). His reasoning: He didn't want me to be exposed to X-Rays?
While trying to reason with him about the money, he slipped (while he was yelling at me) and said that if the insurance company had approved my surgery, he wouldn't have done it for me. (He was required as part of his contract with the insurance company to accept their patients unless he wasn't accepting ANY patients.)
He got me to pay more than twice what he would have received from the insurance company.
And then... the insurance company ended up approving it anyway. I had already paid him and so he was supposed to give my money back to me. He refuses because he says that my contract with him over-rides the contract with the insurance company. But I wouldn't have paid him anything if he had been honest.
If he wouldn't have misled me about the insurance issue, I wouldn't be out my money. If he would have refused the surgery out-right beforehand, I would have found another doctor.
How did the surgery go?
I still have pain. He left in two stitches. One caused me to get infected. The other one caused me continual pain. It had started to be covered up with skin when an acupuncturist found it (I went there to try to get pain relief.) The bottom edges of my breasts are flat - kind of shelf-like. I am hoping that this issue will go away in time. He did make me the correct size and I am happy about that.
