MY PERSONAL REVIEW
 

 

The face lift did relatively little to improve my appearance. My sister actually thought I looked better before the surgery and my husband saw no change (he is a physician). My neck did noticably improve, but now it seems to be falling again only 2-3 years later. I had hoped for longer than that. The forehead-lift made me look "surprised" a concern of my before the surgery as I already had high eyebrows and was assured by him that brow height would not be affected. Not true. Not sure why he did that procedure anyway as i did not have wrinkles in my forehead...oddly I do now. My left eye has bothered me since the surgery, often gets swollen. Not sure why. He was very nice, seemed very professional, and has a great staff. I think he did his best, but I was quite disappointed in the result. Many friends, family knew I had the surgery and no one said anything about it after it was over cause they didn't want to hurt my feelings. Finally my sister and husband fessed up and told me the truth. When I directly asked friends, they said it looked like no difference at all or commented that my eye bones looked too pronounced. One honestly confessed that she thought I looked older. So I don't think it was just me being too picky. He kept telling me it would get better but it didn't. Nice man...so-so results. I don't look awful, but thats hardly a recommendation. Maybe others had better results, dont know. You might want to shop other doctors. Good luck.
