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
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
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
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
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
My surgery was around 8 hours. I am now 3 weeks post op. Nose and face still swollen, but bruises are gone. You really will need to be off work for at least 2 full weeks if not longer. I still look like if someone punch me in the nose - swelling. What concerns me however is my right eye. Since the surgery I can NOT fully close right eye, my lower lid is droopy, eye watering causing me blurred... more
Pro:I only had a bit of pain on day one after the surgery.
Cons: Way too long to heal. Still have bruising and sweling on one side of my face as well as my neck is a mess and looks rope-like.
I wanted to look much younger than 68. It is too early to say what the results will be but I am very optimistic that I will look much younger.
I wish that I had known that it would potentially take... more
Surgery was 7 months ago, still healing and look fresh and younger. Still have some cranial muscle spasms from neck being tightened but will discuss with doc next week. I'm pleased with results but still need to heal.. more
I wanted to correct sagging cheeks and loose skin. I try everything thermage, thread lift ect. But nothing worked like Dr. Man Natural Face Lift it gave me what I was looking for without wasting time and money. I got what I wanted a beautiful face that looks young and natural. I would not trust anyone else.
After the surgery I was glad to spend three days relaxing and being taken care of... more
As a professional artist, I am so pleased with the sophisticated SMAS and neck rejuvenation face-lift Dr. Reddy so delicately performed with such artistic skills. I look in the mirror and see a youthful beautiful face, which reflects how I feel with my active lifestyle. Dr. Reddy's friendly staff and nurses are so personal and professional. I am so pleased and happy with the surgical... more
I went to a great plastic surgeon and have had in the past other procedures and quite familar with the swelling. A face lift can have 3-6 months of swelling and a good solution is to have your doctor to prescribe prednisone and cephalexin 500 mg. You shpuld take every opportunity to ice pack up to first 3 mos. Additionally, wear your wraps is very important at night when you sleep and even a... more
My husband is 9 yrs younger than I and as a photographer, he had been doing a lot of shoots with much younger and beauftiful models. My self esteem was withering along with my facial skin! It's been 3mo. since procedures, & he told me last week I look the best ever, and younger than 10 yrs ago (and I am 62.) Yes, it was worth it.
I had a breast lift w/implants 18 mo. ago at Strax,... more
My wife had a face lift and a neck lift and I had a neck lift at the beginning of this year. Both of us are extremely pleased with every aspect of the experience starting with the administrative staff, medical staff, and especially the doctors. This is a truly professional and caring organization in every sense of the word. more
