I originally visited another doctor here in Austin, but I had also heard of Dr. Buckingham through word of mouth. After looking on the internet, I decided to come in and see what he had to say. Dr. Buckingham was very present during the consultation. And he thought I could do with fewer procedures than the other doctor I’d gone to for a consultation before him thought. He noticed some things about my face that I also had noticed, but that no one else notices. He had a really good eye and he paid a lot of attention to me. I had rapport with him. Everyone I've dealt with at his practice has been very kind, efficient and just wonderful. I had a lower facelift, neck tightening, and fat transfers and I thought the surgery wasn't going to be a big deal but it was. The recovery is a long process and before you do it you don’t think about the numbness and the difficulty sleeping. The first four weeks were kind of touch and go, and I thought I was going to end up swollen for the rest of my life, but just when you start thinking it’s never going to go away, all of sudden it does and it’s incredible. It all comes together and looks really, really good. I feel great now, and my face looks good. I was worried that I wasn't going to look like myself after the surgery because of all the swelling, but I look still look like myself. Once the swelling went down nobody could tell. People didn't go “Oh my God, what happened to you?” They just said that I looked really good. Dr. Buckingham was great throughout the whole procedure. I love him! He even sent me flowers a week or two after my surgery. I thought it was a nice touch to get this beautiful box of flowers. I even thought my husband had sent them, but it was actually from Dr. Buckingham’s office. It was a very nice touch.
