I relocated to the Sacramento area from Palo Alto as I was deciding on facial cosmetic surgery. The surgeon at the practice where I had been a patient for a number of years receiving non surgical facial cosmetic therapies highly recommended Dr. Jonathan Sykes. When I contacted his office the staff were congenial and efficient in getting me a consultation appointment in a timely manner. This... more
After having a procedure performed by a different plastic surgeon, there were definitely areas which needed to be corrected. I had heard about Dr. Almonte and read the great reviews about his work and his caring philosophy. I made an appointment and felt so good about his approach, I immediately scheduled the corrective surgery. I am now 2 months post op and am thrilled with his work! I... more
This review is one that I wish I didn’t have to leave. =( I finally convinced myself, after months of embarrassment and emotional breakdown, to write about my horrifying experience that I had went through with Dr. Toft. I am writing this so I can help others avoid the horrible experiences that I went through. I apologize ahead of time for this long review but I want to make sure that... more
I was really tired of seeing pictures that were less than flattering. Catching glimpses in the mirror of my jawline, neck and undefined cheeks. My jawline was sagging on both sides and it was aging me and I really looked tired all the time. I realized injections just cant fix these areas of the face, neck and the famous turkey waddle.
I made the decision to began consulting with plastic... more
I was 57 years old. I wanted to look the way I felt inside and have my face match my fit body (which I worked so hard at)" "also I wanted to like looking in the mirror again!" I looks at many before and after photos of Dr. Kaniff's work. The computer generated image of how my outcome would look really helped me decided to go for it. I was scared from the minute I made my down payment. However,... more
Back in 2010 I began to become unhappy with my sagging neck. Wrinkles I expected with age, the sag, I did not. I got a consultation with Dr. Scott Green at that time, but decided to go with my girlfriends to Europe instead. Fast forward to 2014, and my neck was beginning to have the full on "turkey neck" look. Dr. Green saw me again, and during the consultation I decided to go for it and... more
My surgery is 1 week from today and I am really scared about how much pain I will be in and how I will end up looking. I'm also afraid of how bad the scars will look. I have a high hairline so I know the scars will be easily visible. I don't want to look different, you know like someone else, just rejuvenated. I just had cataract surgery and no longer need to where glasses. I'm hoping... more
To look like I did in my 40s, to put my face back to where it was before the aging process took place. the office staff at Dr. Kaczynski's office were so wonderful thru out the whole process they helped make this procedure perfect for me, and Dr. K's down to earth personality is so calming you know that the outcome will be just what you expected perfect. more
I turn 60 in about two weeks. I have been planning for face procedures for a couple of years. This is my 60th birthday present to myself. I wanted to look in the mirror and see the face I once knew. I took two weeks off from work. Because I have dry eye syndrome, I elected not to have my upper eyes done at this time.
The first thing I noticed was a pounding headache from the brow lift,... more
I was very pleased with my facelift by Dr. Sykes. I looked refreshed and younger but I didn't look like I'd had a facelift. The results were very natural looking. I would recommend Dr. Sykes to anyone who is looking for a natural, realistic outcome. I would recommend an outpatient facility that specializes in plastic surgery versus the UCD hospital. more
The advantages to a complete facelift are looking and a sense of feeling younger.
The disadvantages are of course the recovery from surgery there was a certain amount of discomfort for a few days.
I am a professional woman and began to feel that my clients would view me as old and lose confidence in my abilities. I wanted to keep working well into my 70's and this... more
Did not want to look like my husbands mother! So, do your research. Spend time visiting as many doctors as you need to until you feel you have found a fit. Ask to see before/after images of patients they have personally performed work on. Not just "office" or "Board of Plastic Surgeon" images. more
Pros: I want to look as good as I can for as long as I can, or at least while I am still in the workplace. I am 60 years old and told I look mid 40's. It's not about trying to look young-I just want to look as good as I can.
Of course the down side is the cost of the surgery but it's worth it--just have to plan for the expense and save. more
I am 8 weeks post op from a face lift. I have a line that runs from my earlobe all around my face (including the chin). It appears as though the line is filled with blood. Additionally, on my left jaw line there is a semi-hard mass which the doctor has injected with steroid twice. The hard mass is getting smaller. I am very uneven and I think I look very "strange".The doctor is... more
