My neck was bothering me the most and Dr. Potparic advised me that a mini face lift with the neck lift would be the ideal. Following his recommendation that is what we did. My results are excellent, I look much younger and I do not have that "plastic Surgery" look. Everyone thinks I am about 10 years younger
than I really am!!
I had the worse turkey neck and it was bothering me very much.... more
The motivation for having my face lift was trying to look as good on the outside as I felt on the inside. My neck was beginning to look 80 years old, and I wasn't fond of my well earned wrinkles. Friends and family thought I looked beautiful the way I was, but I wanted to regain a firm fresh look. more
At 67years old I was in need of a face lift and upper and lower eyes. The bags under my eyes were horrible and my eyelids were really bad Dr Thomason was the third PS I had a consult with. He was kind, soft spoken and understood what I wanted. I knew he was the PS I wanted to work on my face and I was right. Dr Thomason is an excellent PS. I had my procedure done in his office under local... more
I am a 70 year old woman who had rhinoplasty as a teenager, breast reduction as a 40-something, and am planning for a neck lift, facelift, and upper and lower bleph. I was happy with the results of the previous surgeries, and remember wishing I had done them earlier. Why am I doing this now? Because I want to see the self I know in the mirror.
I am traveling to FL from Baltimore for the... more
In 2013~ I was recommended to Dr. Westine for an upper eye lid surgery. I loved the results and my experience with his office in Delray. When I decided to have my lower face and neck lift~ I again returned to Dr. Westine. My procedure was thoroughly explained to me and I felt him and his staff to be approachable and professional.
The results are amazing and Exceeded my Expectation. more
My motivation was easy. I was tired of watching the lines on my face multiply. I was ready to get rid of them. It's not an easy decision to have this work done. I was never in any pain just discomfort but each day you get better and better. The recovery time is 4-5 weeks but it is well worth it. The outcome for me was a younger looking face, beautiful skin and a very natural look. more
I had a neck lift, eyelid surgery and brow lift done. No one can tell that I had these procedures - it looks totally natural and I look at least 10 years younger. I had some (expected) discomfort but never any real pain. The entire experience was the best I could have ever hoped for. Every day that I look in the mirror I am delighted with the results. It was well worth the cost. more
Dr. John Westine is an amazing facial plastic surgeon. He does fabulous work and treats you like family. People say I look so natural and cannot see that I had any work done. However, I was told that I look 15 years younger. The staff as well as Dr. Westine are very caring, friendly and treat you with great respect. more
This may be difficult for many people to believe, as Dr. Westine is certainly charming and very good looking, but that does not make a good surgeon. Since my face lift I have never looked worse. I was married a little over a year after my face lift that included eye lid surgery and burning of the skin, I forget the proper term, to remove fine lines, which was Dr. Westine's suggestion. I look... more
Having a facelift with Dr. Michael Rodriguez was like a day at the spa. He is wonderful and very professional . His staff from top to bottom were all kind and most helpful. My facelift is just a week old and I can see a great difference. This facelift was done under local and I never felt a a thing or had pain number one. I highly recommend Dr. Rodriguez and his great office. They do many... more
The outcome....buyer beware! He has no bedside manner. Large scars at the front and rear of my ears. Hence, no hair growth where the scars are. He was very unsympathetic . I would not recommend him ever! Had hair loss and all he said was the "It should grow back". I would never recommend him to anyone! more
Dr. Westine is the GREATEST! If you want to have the BEST Plastic Surgeon in South Florida you have the opportunity with Dr. Westine. Not only is he truly the most gifted Surgeon but a truly gentle man with a "heart of gold". Very rare these days do you find a top Doctor who truly cares about each and everyone of his patience. I interviewed with a few Surgeons before I was lucky enough to... more

I first went to Dr. Reddy in 2001 for a breast re-augmentation. My first one was in 1990 by a different plastic surgeon. What a nightmare!! I really was not happy with the results. The recovery and process was not a pleasant experience. I sure didn’t like the way they looked either. Dr. Reddy redid them and I was thrilled, recovery was a breeze. They looked so... more
I was beginning to feel like I had a tired look. My skin was sagging a little around my jaw line and my neck needed some tightening. I knew I wanted a facelift. So then began the task of finding the right doctor. After much searching I found Dr. Schwartz . I made an appointment for a consultation. I immediately felt comfortable talking to him. He talked to me about what I wanted to have... more
I was having eyelid surgery to improve my droopy eyes and decided why not go ahead and get a facelift while I was at it. Big mistake. The facelift turned out to be more invasive and severe than I had thought or imagined it would be. Nothing went wrong really, but it was so intense. I just want anyone thinking about having this surgery to realize that half of the backs of your ears are cut... more
10 years ago I had gastric bypass. I was referred to Dr Albert by a friend. With the great results of that procedure, I contacted ONLY Dr Albert for my eye, face and necklift. The procedures went well, and 6 weeks after, everything looks great. His staff is friendly and his work is remarkable. I would go to no other surgeon. I hight recommend Dr Gregory Albert. more
I always knew that when the time came I'd have a face lift. Well.....the time has come :) I'm almost 58 and always looked younger than my age but last year I noticed I was getting jowls and my lids were getting heavy. My first thought was Mexico, it's so much cheaper there but what if there were complications??? I started my search right here where I live in Palm Beach County. The 1st... more
Hi Ladies. I have enjoyed all the reviews I have come across on RealSelf and it is time for me to start my own.:)
I am having a short scar FL plus a brow lift on 6/3/14, and I am apprehensive, nervous, and excited all at the same time.
I turned 48 last month, and basically up until 2011 had not had any PS work done..........not even botox. So......I am a late bloomer:)
My lovely husband... more
All of my life I have looked younger than my biological age. I still looked great at 60, but by age 65, naso-labial folds deepened; jowls began to develop; a prominent band appeared in my neck from a sagging muscle; the skin under my eyes was crepey; and I was tired-looking from droopy upper lids. Time for a change! If you remember "I Feel Bad About My Neck And Other Thoughts On Being a... more
I interviewed 6 top doctors in south Florida and was not satisfied with any of them. My hormone doc recommended Dr. Messa. I had a facelift and breast implant exchange and I am thrilled with the results. Both procedures were expertly and artistically done with the best possible look. Dr. Messa's entire operation is superb, from the anesthesiologist to the OR and recovery nursing team to... more
