Well after much thought and a lot of homework. I finally scheduled my surgery for June 11th! I'm so excited to share my journey with everyone. I have contemplated doing this for so long and I finally got up the courage when I realized that the longer I wait the more I sag! I want to say thank you to everyone who has posted reviews and especially photos, you have all been such an inspiration... more
I wanted to remove sagging skin from my neck and face. I am very happy with some of the results so far, but every day as the swelling goes down I notice more positive changes. My neck already looks really good.I cant wait until all the swelling has gone to see the final results.I probably will have other work done and definetelly will have Dr Franco do them. more
After years of fillers and a waste-of-time-and-money Ultherapy treatment last year (I have a review of that fiasco, click here) I am having a face lift! Nek lift, lower and mid face and upper lids to be exact. I am going with my beloved PS Dr. Leonard Hochstein who did my breast lift/reduction a few years back (click here to see my review, "New Boobs This September"). Surgery is 1 week... more
I am sitting here reading reviews and I just have to comment. My experience seems so different from most of the reviews. I had face, not brow lift, neck, eyelid and had muscle between brow cut. After 2 months i finally feel a little normal but my face is numb, under chin, forehead, eyebrows, earlobes. I think that covers it. I am not a wimp I am in great shape and I am 58. This procedure... more
I'm 42 years old and had a facelift procedure done this Spring. The droopiness around the corners of my mouth and in the cheeks along with the turkey neck were my main concerns. I wanted to target these specific areas and went to Dr. Salomon for this purpose after checking out a few doctors in Miami.
Ok, I know I have a high pain threshold but I didn't think I will feel so little pain after... more
I remember how excited, scared and nervous I was before surgery. Dr. Pascual was a doll, but I just couldn't get rid of the thought that something might go wrong. I was under for several hours and felt so weird after waking up. Healing took a couple of months, I still have some pain every now and then, but my face isn't as tender as it was before. The result is amazing taking into account how... 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
I was unhappy with my old tired 60 years olf face , drooping eyes lids and sagging jowls. So after a lot of reseach, I decided to have a facelift, eye lift and necklift 4 months ago in Nov 2012. My Plastic surgeon is Dr. Adam Rubinstein in Aventura. My face is now so beautiful, I look 20 years younger. I and my husband absolutely loves my new face. I feel like we are having "second honeymoon"... more

I went under a face -neck lift and upper and lower eye lid surgery with Dr Rodriguez in Dr Spera office.
I am not happy with the results. Far to be a long last result as a face lift promises, 7-12 years. Instead, this face lifts last 1 year only. After my surgery, I had to wait six months to get a revision because the Jaws and chin was not lifted at all. Also I went under a review for my eye... more
On Sept 12th 9 days ago I had a Face/Neck Lift along with a Blepharoplasty (both lids).
I was anxious prior to surgery, because I had form images in my mind of this "Great Deal of Pain" I would need to endured to see myself looking more refreshed.
To my total amazement no "Pain" what so ever. I did no have to use the prescribed pain medication I was given not even Tylenol!
For those... 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 had a bad brow lift and chin implant from another plastic surgeon 3 years ago. The brow lift left me with that awful deer in the headlights look and a big white scar across my forehead and the chin implant was terrible so I took it out but it left me with saggy skin in my neck.
The procedures I had were a reverse brow lift and mid-face lift and it has made such a difference. The reverse... more
