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 was approaching 50 and unhappy with how my facial and neck skin were sagging. I was avoiding pictures because I didn't like the "folds" when I would smile. I had a face and neck lift as well as a laser procedure and I am so glad I did! I look 20 years younger! The recovery time was relatively quick considering all that was done. I took 3 weeks off of work, but probably could have gone back... more
My husband sat me down one night, and after telling me how much he sees me do for others both at home and at the office, he wondered if I'd like to do something just for me. He handed me some information that he had been waiting for from Dr. Raymond Lee’s Newport Beach Office, and sat me down for a serious talk about something I had grumbled about since we met . . . my facial profile. He... 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
Dr. Timothy R. Miller was referred to my by my son's dermatologist, Dr. Green. The mirror was showing me that no amount of drugstore products would restore my falling cheeks, smooth my wrinkles or lift my jowls. My mother had a facelift at about my age so for me it is normal. I was most impressed by Dr. Miller's double board certification in plastic and facial plastic surgery. I had always... 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
My facelift was not satisfactory. My neck is still loose and hanging and my jowls are still loose. I went to see Dr. Sikorski and she got upset with me and agreed to do a revision for $4,900. I expected her to stand behind her work and do it for almost nothing, since she did not do a good enough job in the first place. Do Not go to her, she is unethical. more
Don't have room to express everything here, but the long and the short of it is, so glad to have taken the plunge and had the procedure! It has made a huge difference in my outlook and my self image. I was feeling older than my years, and now I feel like I feel on the inside (as everyone says). Ask me any questions you would like, because I asked many questions on this site, and it helped... 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 had Dr. Nitta perform a forehead lift on me at 40 so it was natural that I had her do my face lift at 56 because the forehead still looks perfect. She did an amazing job on my face and neck. It's hard to find a surgeon who is good at men's faces and who enjoys the challenge. She does! She's an incredible surgeon in so many ways. more
I had considered having a facelift for 2-3 years but never saw results that really inspired me to go through with it. While spending the summer in southern CA, I made a new friend that raved about Dr Miller. She and friends of hers were beautiful examples of the skill of Dr. Miller. After meeting with him, I felt I had found the right doctor. He and his staff are very warm and caring. ... more
I had just retired and wanted my fatigued looking face to more closely match my youthful energy level. Of specific concern were my droopy eyelids, puffy under-eye area, jowly jawline, and sagging neck. After careful consideration of the options Dr. Kessler presented, I opted for a face and neck lift, endoscopic brow lift and upper eyelids. I could not have been more satisfied with the... more
At my age, I needed to do something to halt the normal aging process. My neck has been bad for years but lately my face started sagging and jowls appeared. I hated looking at myself in the mirror. The reflection no longer looked like me. So, I discussed my displeasure with my husband and he encouraged me to “go for it.” I made appointments with several doctors in my area. I knew I had to... 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
After 15 years of sagging neckline and 5 years of jowl development I decided it was time to get my jawline back! I live in Los Angeles, so the options are limitless. I opted not to choose a Lifestyle lift, due to inconsistentcies in results and comments. I looked for experts in neck specialization and interviewed a Dr in Beverly Hills and one in Newport Beach. Both were dynamic and had... more
I was referred to Dr. Sadati by Dr. Henry Bikhazi for a lower facelift. I am very pleased with the results of my facelift and with Dr. Sadati. He is an artist and sincerely cares about his patients. I have received many compliments from others who simply say I look great. The best compliment was from my ex-husband who said I looked like 40! Thank you so much Dr. Sadati! more
I never thought I would be the type of person to get a facelift. I always considered myself attractive but did not dwell on my appearance. I raised three kids and recently became a grandmother. One day last year I was at the hair salon and looked at myself in the mirror -- I hardly recognized the woman looking back at me. My jowls and neck looked like they belonged on my grandmother.
I began... more
I was 63 years old when I finally decided it was time to have my face refreshed and stop looking so tired all of the time.
My hairdresser, who I trust, recommended Dr. Ambe. It was the best recommendation I ever received. From start to finish I have been extremely happy with the outcome of my surgery, as well as the care provided by Dr. Ambe and his staff. He gave me such a natural look... more

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
