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.
