Great Results! 18 Years removed, January 3, 2014, 9:39 am
PROCEDURES: SwiftLift w/ extensions, platysma band correction, Co2 lower lids, and silicone filler.
After 8 years of research and consultation, I decided with Dr. Vincent to correct the aging aspects of my face and neck. In Nov 2013 I had the following procedures: Swift Lift w/ extensions, platysma band correction under chin and center neck, Co2 lower lids, and small amt. of silicone filler to right side of nose. Everything went great! I’m a perfectionist and I told Dr. Vincent that I heard he was also a perfectionist. He replied, ‘I try to be’. So, 5 weeks post op and scrutinizing the individual procedures, all is perfect and then some. Just before surgery I mentioned that one ear was lower by 1/8+ inch then the other, Dr. Vincent said, ‘your right-glad you pointed it out’. Well, the other day I noticed my sunglasses straight across my face, my ears are the same now. One last comment about my ears, I mentioned to Dr. V that my ear lobes are prefect and that I want to keep them that way. There the same -THANKS DOC! My nose correction (called revision) -- A well-known Plastic Surgeon in Ogden UT preformed Rhinoplasty 18 yrs ago but did not do a symmetrical procedure. Dr. V suggested filling the small indention with FDA approved silicone. It turned out perfect. SwiftLift w/ extensions -- The incision behind my ear is all the way where the ear meets the head, I can’t see it. In the front of my ear we decided on the procedure referred to as ‘inside the ear’ incision, which is not actually inside the ear but cuts over (slightly inside) the center lobe portion. Although the center lobe took longer to heal, I’m so glad I was a candidate for this method. 6 weeks post op and you cannot find my incisions. When choosing a surgeon to perform cosmetic procedures be careful running to a plastic surgeon vs. a cosmetic surgeon thinking you’ll get a better job. If your face is ripped off in an auto accident go to a plastic surgeon but if you want artistic improvements to your body be watchful dismissing a skillful cosmetic surgeon. I finally decided on Dr. Vincent to perform my artistic facial surgery for his experience, extensive training in face and neck anatomy, artistic insight to the body, you can tell he loves what he does, and in my research - the price is very good. Just remember, he’ll do his part but half the work in pre and post op will be up to you. Get in shape, buy the Recovery Support Program, follow the instructions, and good luck. Thx again Doc!
