I had been thinking about having a facelift, brow lift and upper eyelid surgery for a very long time but was too afraid to do anything about it. I would look into the mirror almost every morning and night gently pulling back the skin on my face and neck, wishing I could look like that again. Then, in February everything started to fall into place. I had a consultation with Dr. Robert Wald... more
I had a facelift, browlift, and upper eyelid surgery done by Dr. Sinclair. I am so very pleased with his expertise. He listened to my every little wish and went the extra mile to please me. For example, I had mentioned a slight dissatisfaction with my long earlobes and he made just the slightest change that makes all the difference in the world. I shall now stop wearing earrings that hide... more
I wanted to enhance my appearance, I was recommended by a very dear friend. She also was recommend by a friend of hers. So I made an appointment. Dr. Lee is very professional . I could not have been more comfortable, he was very easy to talk to and answered every question I had. I would highly recommended him. Thank you Dr. Lee for helping me feel good about me! You are a miracle worker.... more
I looked in the mirror one day and said, "what the ____happened to me?" My Sister who is an avid fan of the Dr. Oz show viewed Dr. Raffi Hovsepian on the show talking about his new procedure a less evasive liposuction that Dr. Hovsepian pioneered. "Shrinkwrap liposuction" When she shared that with me I decided to have a consult. I went for my mid section and Dr. Hovsepian was so personable I... more
At age 50, I could no longer bear the face in the mirror. Jowls, sagging skin, crepey loose neck and asymmetric fat deposits on the right hand side of my face. I had always planned to 'have work done' but what surprised me most about the whole experience was that my only discomfort would come from having to lie on my back to sleep which was eventually solved by placing a pillow under my knees... more
Four and a half months ago I had a mid-face lift and neck lift by Dr. Pearson. I came in for a consult with a lengthy list of questions that he went over with me with in full detail, never making me feel rushed. In addition to demonstrating in the mirror generally what I could expect, he also took pictures of my face in a few angles, brought them up on the computer screen enabling him to... more
The time had come for me to realize I had aged, gained weight and gotten depressed over it.
A couple of my friends went to see Dr. Timothy Neavin, a plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills. He made these women beautiful and I thought I would go see him as well. As my pictures will show, he brought years of youth back to my life. My mid life crisis, and depression, and lack of energy went away and... more
I want Doctor Chugay to be known for his miserable job he did on my face.
This is an open letter to whom it may concern. I will dedicate the rest of my life to make it public.
Doctor Chugay did a real bad job on my face and left me with a lot of permanent (Physical, emotional and financial) damage. The first full face operation was terrible; the second one (correcting the first one) was even... more
Like many of us, gaining and losing weight can break down the skin and create our faces to change. I needed to remove the fat pouch under my neck, take away my sagging eyelids and bring back my oval face I stead of round. It was totally worth it. What a difference a profile can make!!! I can wear eyeshadow and you can see it! more
I am in outside sales and meet clients; i had lost the experience of heads turning and getting 2nd looks. So i accepted this as a reality for about 12 years and a friend encouraged me to do something for myself. so pleased that i took that advice. the results are significant and i am very satisfied. it is very thought provoking the additional attention that you get when you look good. more
I was referred to Dr. Robin Yuan many years ago by someone who had shopped plastic surgeons, learned that Dr. Yuan was the best, and was extremely happy with his work.
Dr. Robin Yuan has now been my trusted plastic surgeon for many years, and I cannot tell you how many people have complimented me on how young I look for my age. Years ago he did a face lift, a mid face lift, eye work, laser... more
i am writing this review for those of you who made the mistake of getting permanent filler. i had permanent filler in December because everyone i knew had it done and looked great. The dr was a talented dr from Brazil (a real dr with a practice in Ribeiro Prieto) and sculpted such beautiful faces. i never got anything done other than restylane under my eyes and artefill once (results... more
Finally went ahead with the facelift, brow lift and upper/lower eyes and I couldn't be happier. Dr. E is amazing. I don't look freakish or pulled, just younger and refreshed. I feel great! As predicted there was swelling and bruising the first couple weeks but I was able (with heavy concealer) go back to work in 2 weeks after the procedure. Highly recommend Dr. E. more
I was looking like my 82-year old aunt. (a bit of an exaggeration, but the resemblance was uncanny!) Even my mother (83) noticed the resemblance. I wanted to have a more youthful appearance. I interviewed four surgeons. Each was a one-hour consultation. I asked a lot of questions of each and I got some very good information.
Prior to interviewing, I had watched videos of real facelift... more
I have always considered myself to be an attractive and certainly very confident woman. Except for about the last 10 years. I am 49. I had a radical hysterectomy and some complications. I put on a great deal of weight. I have recently lost 70 pounds which resulted in sagging, droopy skin. My relaxed face was a frown. So sick of people telling me to smile! My upper eyelids sagged so much that... more
Ok. This year I'm going to do it. I actually went to a cosmetic surgeon after the second incident of someone thinking I was grandma (2010), and the surgeon (bless her heart) said I didn't need one. Last year, I went again (to the surgeon who performed my upper and lower blepharplasty in 2007) and got a quote of $8300, but I don't think it included a neck lift.
Today I had an appointment with... more
If a picture is worth a thousand words then I could stop writing, but what the photos don’t show is Dr. Moelleken’s excellent bedside manner and what his magic has done for my self-esteem. I’ve never met a doctor with a better bedside manner. I just turned 50 and although I diet and exercise and maintain a general healthy lifestyle, the years were beginning to show—especially around... more
Actually the title says it all...I am a Public Affairs Manager for the southern CA electric utility that serves the majority of the OC. I cover 9 cities and plan to work for at least 8 to 10 more years or more if health and mental capacity allow me to. I felt I needed to look more refreshed...jowls had started to sag making me look unhappy/unfriendly unless I was smiling, my neck was... more

But i am feeling more anxious the closer it gets. I dont look forward to the bruising and swelling. i want it to go well with a smooth recovery. I pray for that and that i will be happy with the result.... more
First of all, thank you for all of these amazing posts. This is giving me the courage to go through with this, (and watching reruns of Dr. 90210). I need post surgical corrections, and also know that i can look better at the ripe age of 53. i have kept up with little procedures over the years to maintain myself, but had decided to take a break,and work on my insides instead.It has definitely... more
