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 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
I am 42 and the Day I Met Dr. Krau his eye for beauty and precision turned my face into better than it was in the peak of my youth. It all happen so fast, Painless, Nearly Bruisless, and Scarless. And I really did not loose any sleep, over discomfort. I went in to a consultation with Dr. Krau & his wonderful staff on a Wednesday. Had previously scheduled the surgery for the immediate... 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
Trepidation about having a facelift? Absolutely! Vanity won out and I am extremely glad it did. Wanted to look better, tighten up some but not expecting to look 25. I came prepared to the procedure with a hat, scarf, sunnies and even considered a sheet to drape over myself just in case :). All admonitions by friends that had had the procedure, telling me how they were glad they had had it done... 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 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
