Excited to have my face and neck rejuvenated!
Oh the nerves are ticking.
I will post daily if I can. Probably a video diary too.
My goals are to take away the heaviness in my eyes, defeat and tighten up the neck so I can have a jawline.
You know like JLo lol now I'm dreaming!!
Dreaming is good!

My motivation for getting a facelift was to look as young as I felt internally. I workout and keep in shape but gravity was affecting my face and neck and the eye area. I felt my experience with Dr. Spies was exceptional. My doctor exceeded my expectations and made me look amazing with a much more youthful appearance. I think Dr. Spies is the best in the valley. He was highly recommended... more
I wanted to look as young as I felt. My chin and eyes were sagging. I checked about Lifestyle lift and DON'T do it! Horrible results that don't last! Im EXTREMELY HAPPY with Dr. Shapiro's results! He is a true master in his work! I HIGHLY recommend him!! I wish I had done it sooner! And he is very reasonability priced. His lifts will last 15 years! The procedure isn't painful either; just... more
I am 59 and just went thru a divorce. I was married for 40 years most of which was not good. I am adjusting to single life and felt like I owed it to myself to do something special.
I first saw Dr. David Yao on the internet. I had already determined I liked the way he looked. Very kind face. The more I investigated the more I liked. A+ rating all the way around. I had a consultation... more
Plastic surgery was something I never would have considered. It was out of the question for me, until I found myself repeatedly waking up and looking in the mirror in the morning, and disliking more and more the impact my significant weight loss had on my face, combined with the natural signs of aging after 50. Feeling optimistic and hopeful about a new life ahead of me, I decided to do... more
Two weeks ago I underwent a minimal incision facelift, neck lift, fat transfer and laser treatment with Dr. Repta. To say I'm happy with my results is an understatement, I am thrilled!! My entire experience was so much more positive and easier than I ever imagined it would be. From my consultation through my procedure and now at two weeks post-op has been a really smooth ride. I never... more
I am a 49 yr old female who had had some bad previous surgeries. I had a couple mid face lifts and one that left me with a smile that showed my gum line. I was very depressed and reclusive at that time with results that looked like I had surgery.
I found Dr. Daniel Shapiro and knew this would be my chance to look normal again. As soon as I had my pre op appt I knew he was the right Dr. He... more
I heard about Dr. Spies by word of mouth in 2008. I had a brow-lift in 2009. Facelift, tummy tuck and liposuction in 2010. I am very happy with all the procedures that was done by Dr. Spies. He is the best in his field. I would not trust another. I am over sixty years old, & look mid-forties. As an older person weight loss does not always help, this is where Dr. Spies comes in. I am planning... more
I had saved for many, many years to have plastic surgery done. I received at least 20 referrals for surgeons in the Valley...NO shortage of Plastic Surgeons here in Scottsdale..lol!!
I called Mayo Clinic for referrals. They raved about Dr Maffi, telling me he taught their residents.
After investigating referrals, and speaking to others who have had "work" done, a consistent theme approached..... more
I had a Facelift, a Browlift, an Upper and Lower Blepharoplasty, Fat transfer in the nasal fold and the jaw line and the chin. I was 53 years old or I still am at the moment and I was looking fat and saggy.
What I did is I looked at a lot of other doctors' work as well as Dr. Shapiro's, and I've been looking for seven years, and so I've actually been following his work on different women... more
I never thought I would do anything like this. I am very glad I did. I look in the mirror and see a familiar face instead of the old lady I was seeing beforehand. I am 62 years old and had very bad sun damage. What I am happiest about is the very natural look I retain, not that odd over-done plastic surgery one often sees.
I would like to add that Dr. Ward's suggestions and counsel were... more
I liked the anesthesiologist and the surgical nurse/s.
Sometimes while talking to me in person, the doctor was focused and sometimes he was distracted. On the phone, before my first surgery, he was distracted, I could hear a lot of noise behind him sometimes, and although I'd emailed questions to him before he called me, he would ask me to remember them off the top of my head as though... more
I went to Dr. Henderson for two separate facial surgeries. The first was for a neck and jaw lift. The second was for a brow lift and upper and lower lid lift. I did these two surgeries a year apart.The reason I did the surgeries separately was because of the cost. more
I was looking older than my age due to significant turkey neck and jowls. I consulted Dr. Henderson and she suggested a facelift and a chin implant to add definition to my jawline. I will admit that the first few days after the procedure were quite uncomfortable and I got a little alarmed when one of my ears was quite numb. IIt has only been five weeks since my procedure, so I am still getting... more
I had the usual sagging in the lower face due to age (76) and the surgery corrected that and also gave me a "new neck"!!! I traveled to Mt six weeks later and no one realized that I had had this done. They just said. "You look wonderful--You never change!" That was good enough for me. The reasults are so natural looking---just BETTER.
I had the surgery on June 18th. Three months out now and... more
The no neck look was creeping up. An older sibling had little neck.
A god-send to have this done.
Friends only notice that I've lost weight, which I haven't, actually. Working on that:)
But they think I look great Yea! Worth every penny, and the time spent healing. A friend said that she knew someone who went back to work in a week. That would be pushing it. I had the time to heal... more
As a design creative and a self-described perfectionist, I devoted a great deal of research into the difficult task of finding exactly the right physician for my procedure - including consultations with several surgeons. My doctor's passion for beauty/artistry combined with his outstanding surgical perfection and unparalleled reputation, made my decision an easy one. He instilled real... more
I was amazed at the transformation-neck, cheeks, forehead, and eyes! Everything was back to where it was 20 years ago (yes, I did compare with old pictures). And to not need turtlenecks anymore! I am just so pleased by my results. I look better that he made me look with the computer imaging! A few months later and there are no scars visible. I am enjoying attention that I didn’t get... more
The wait time is only because he spends all the time needed with each of his clients. Well worth it!
Even though I look 10-15 years younger (no more jowls, no bags under the eyes, beautiful chin line, etc.), everyone just thought I had a very restful summer. No one can tell I had a facelift, I have no give-away scars, and I can tie my hair back tightly without a sign, even... more
Sun damage, wrinkles and leather saggy skin. Hollowed, baggy cheeks and eyes. Fear of bad plastic surgery!!
I am an Arizona native and my skin shows it. My greatest fear is finding the wrong surgeon after the fact. I've seen too many bad scars, gobbler necks and gaunt-looking old women with smooth cheeks. Dr. Holden discussed a facelift and eyelid surgery. His solution to... more
