There is that thing about aging gracefully.....well, I just couldn't do it. So I researched several plastic surgeons in the San Francisco area. Lucky for me, I found Dr. Corey Maas. It was very obvious after
my consultation with him that he was by far the most informed about different procedures and not
only mentioned the pros but cons, if there were any. I had been so nervous, and somehow... more
...and have decided to have a face/neck lift and endoscopic brow lift. After the consultation and my post in the Q&A section it's definitely what I need in order to get a complete and balanced result. The doctor is one who I have known for 15 years, he specializes in faces, and he did my upper eyelids when I was 40 as well as beautiful work on two of my friends. I'm nervous but so excited! ... more
After losing more than 160 pounds, and keeping it off 10 years, I felt wonderful - except when I looked in the mirror. My face looked like melted candle wax, and when someone thought I was my best friend's mother (for the second time in 2 months), I burst into tears.
It wasn't just vanity - I also needed to be job hunting, and although I was young enough for the health IT world, the truth... more
Hi, I’m Laurie, 54 years old, 5’ 2” and 145 lbs with 5 children (1 c-section). I live just north of San Francisco and have planned for many years to seek out plastic surgery when I felt the time was right. I really thought that (with a little travel) I would have many different options available to me when I decided to move forward with my plan to have a mini-facelift followed by a... more
I'm 63 years old and have always maintained a young-looking, lean, fit and trim body; but over the last decade I was noticing my face was really looking old and tired. I'd been thinking about a facelift for several years so my face would match the rest of my body and look like I feel. I met Dr. Elyassnia when he performed my trigger finger release through my health plan, and subsequently... more
I'm 100% pleased with my facelift from Steven Struck. From the consult to the surgery to the post-op follow up, the entire process has been better than I even imagined.
At 2 1/2 weeks I went to a party and a friend walked up and said, "You've lost weight! You look amazing! What diet did you do?"
Later that night a friend said, "You look more beautiful than EVER." And the other friend standing... more
I had a lower facelift, chin implant with scar revision and neck lift procedures. One year prior, I had upper and lower blepharoplasty, rhinoplasty and a brow-lift. Both surgeries by Dr. Chiu-Collins went very smoothly and the results left me looking very refreshed and not "done." I am extremely pleased by the results (which look even better over time) and can't say enough about the care and... more
I thought I would stay young forever, but one day looking in the mirror I wondered who that old woman was looking back at me!! I just couldn't put it off any longer, my best friend had her facelift with Dr. Delgado and I knew I didn't want to see anyone else. Her results were so natural and what I wanted! The surgery was so much easier than I expected, Dr. Delgado explained what he suggested I... more
Like doctor's work.
MD is professional and patient person.
I'd like to come back, but for me it's expensive at this point.
Had facelift, but I'd like to get rid of wrinkle around mouth. Because of product price, I'll think about doing juvederm instead of other product which Dr Hui recommended.
Thank you. Tamila. more
I finally decided it was time to do something about my aging face, I looked like I was in my late fifties on the outside, but felt 40 on the inside. I met with two other surgeons and decided on Dr. Chang after seeing her before and after photos and well as the result of one of my friends who had a facelift with her. I felt very comfortable with my whole experience, she is extremely... more
I am a 56 yr old female nurse who had been shopping around for a plastic surgeon for the past 7 years. I live in San Francisco and although I had researched for plastic surgeons in the bay area, I could not find one that I was comfortable with and was reasonably priced for the work I wanted performed. I had previously had a couple of corrective plastic surgery procedures, I was not impressed... more
The best kept secret of the San Francisco East Bay is plastic surgeon Elizabeth S. Lee, MD whose offices are in Berkeley and Lafayette: www.artfulsurgery.com. Dr. Lee performed my face-lift. The results are remarkable; it’s as if the clock has been turned back 20 years. Rather than calling it a "face-lift," I prefer to call it a "restoration." My face has been restored to how I perceive... more
This was my very first experience with any kind of cosmetic surgery and I honestly don't think I would have had the courage to move forward without the absolute (and well deserved!) trust and confidence I developed in Dr. Evan Ransom and his assistant Dee Roby. At 62 years of age, I finally had to accept the reality that my face was significantly sagging, my neck made me look older than... more
I am 57 years old, my face was sagging, I was bothered by signs of aging, including a double chin, the corners of my mouth were moving downwards, making my face look unhappy. My eyelids were droopy.
I talked to four plastic surgeons, and I decided to go with Dr. Korman. I was not disappointed. He was without question better than the other three plastic surgeons in my geographical area, as I... more
I had everything done by Dr. Barnett. I was 55, sagging, looking old. I have a youthful body, so it was time to do something. Dr. Barnett was referred to me by a number of people. All said he was the very best. They were right. I had my neck, face, eye, and forehead done. I looked basically the same, but toned and youthful. I did not look like someone else. I see that often, where the... more
My lower face, including neck was really starting to go south. (sag) I'm very active and on the thinner side and had lost a lot of fat in my face and checks. This was adding to my face looking longer and hallow. I was hallow in my temples, my checks had lost their sculpted definition and appeared flat from the profile and I was developing jowls. I had seen Dr. Commons for liposuction and knew... more
I'm very happy with the results of my facelift, neck lift and blepharoplasty. The surgery and recovery were easier than I expected. The ambiance in the clinic is beautiful, the nurses and anesthesiologist are lovely and competent. I was treated like royalty, and very happy I chose Dr. Kaplan. I'm going to go to him again next year for more procedures. more
I decided to treat myself to a facelift as a personal gift to myself. I wanted to look the way I feel, vibrant and young at heart, so I had a lower face lift with fat injections around my cheeks and under my eyes. Long story short, it has been just under a year, and it is remarkable how great I look and, surprisingly, I look even better from one week to the next! The swell of compliments... more
I went for a surgery in 2012 and plan to do more procedures soon. Dr.Delgado is an artist, but he uses scalpel instead of a brash in order to create beautiful bodies and faces. Thank you Dr.Delgado. more
Face and necklace by dr. Joseph Mele in Walnut Creek California. A+.... excellent results... beautiful... I'm very very pleased...highly recommend him. typical aging situation. I noticed in the mirror that my face was showing its age around March 2013; and decided that I needed to consider a facelift and A neck tightening as well. After researching on realself.com i soon found board certified... more
