I had facelift, neck and upper , lower eyelids with Dr. Frank Rieger in
Tampa, Florida on May 17,2015. I am very pleased with the results. Dr Rieger and his staff are wonderful. I chose Dr. Rieger after much reschearch, he has a reputation of being meticulous, skilled and kind. I found him to be all of these. My recovery was quite easy .. No pain just discomfort and minimal brusing. Thanks... more
My face seemed tired and starting to droop everywhere. When I visited Dr Halpern, who was recommended by a dear friend, I told him that I understood that he was an expert and I wanted him to do whatever it was that I needed. I did not want to look like anyone but myself only less droopy. I put myself totally in his hands and he worked miracles. I have spent the last 18 years with a... more
I would describe Dr. Holcomb as a person who pays a lot of attention to detail. He was patient and accommodating about my demands. I’m very persistent and a perfectionist but he was very understanding about what I wanted. I had a laser-assisted facelift but the recovery pain was very minimal. There was some bruising, but he’s got a great laser machine that within a few days, he used that... more
I have been saving for years to do a facelift. I am ready - Weight loss of nearly 70 lbs. contributed to sagging and loose skin on face. Also wrinkles. Will have fat injections around eyes and cheek and mouth, neck and face lift. I am very comfortable with the doc and facilities of where I am going.
Only 10 days before it is my turn. Had a check up with my opthomologist to tell him what... more
I am so happy I had the surgery performed by Dr. C. I definitely look at least 15 years younger than I did prior to the surgery. What a boost to my self-confidence and self-esteem. And I had a lot of these attributes prior. I enjoy using the Image Lift products, love putting on my make-up and saying to myself "boy do you look good! Ladies, I say if you can afford it, go for it. You will... more
My wife and I actually attended a seminar back in 2012 with Dr. Holcomb. We liked what we saw at the seminar and he seemed very personable. Last year my wife had a cosmetic procedure with him and so did three of her friends. I liked the office environment and the results they had so I came for a complete facelift and blepharoplasty on February 18. My results are fantastic. I saw my daughter,... more
I had a full face lift and I love my new look !! It was the best thing I have ever spent money on the result are perfect I now look 10 years younger at the age of 50 ! Would I do it ever again for sure. The pain level was about 5 on a scale from 1 to 10 after 4 months I still feel some numbing in my face but I'm in love with my face and my husband of 32 years loves it also !!! more
Aging 'gracefully' is easier said and done, particularly when is happen to you. I have always taken good care of my appearance and definitely took pride in looking my best. I was lucky in that despite submitting my skin to extreme tanning practices in my youth, I still looked younger 'for my age' up to my 50's.
The big shocking occurrence was hitting 60...For some unexpected reason; my body... more
I'm going for a lower face-lift to take care of my jowls and banding on my neck. I had a full face lift 21 years ago and this is way overdue. I'm super nervous because I'm alone for this. I've hired a nurse to take me home from surgery and stay with me over the first night. After that I'm on my own. I have a neighbor who has volunteered but I don't feel comfortable with him seeing me... more
I have considered a facelift since my late 40's. I always said that I did not have the time or money, but fear was the real reason. I was fascinated by photos of bad surgeries. I knew that the correct surgeon was the key factor to a natural and younger look after a facelift.
I began a 5 year search for a competent surgeon. I once asked a beautiful lady doctor to recommended her... more
Never got a lift at all. What I did get were many friends and doctors telling me to get my money back. Because it is going to cost more than $25,000 to fix all the issues I have now from the work he did.
Tes he was nice and courtious, yes I got his cell phone. What I wasn't expecting ws to need another 10's of thousnds of dollars to repair the damage he created from the procedure of jowls... more
He asked what I was looking for, and I told him my primary goal was to get rid of my jowls and tighten my jawline and neck. I'm just under 8 weeks from my surgery, and I can state unequivocally that he did everything exactly as I desired. I feel like a refreshed version of myself without the hanging jowls that made me look tired and probably grumpy, which I'm not! It's so nice to look in the... more
I had a Mini Facelift and Neck Lift along with a Mid Face Suture Lift ! I am so very happy with the results ! I was awake for the whole surgery and it was done in office and it took a little over 4 hours. I still need to have my lower eyes done and I am also thinking about a lateral Brow Lift. Just before these picture were taken I had my upper lids done along with the tip of my nose and it... more
I am 62 yrs old and tired of seeing my mom in the mirror, hated my profile due to the wrinkles and jowels. Well I did it had upper eyes and Mid Face lift. Today is day 4 swelling is down much better. My neck is what is the most uncomfortable, took the "pain pills for couple of days but now just the anitinflamatory and ex strenght tylenol. I am worried about two things... My neck tightness... more
I went for three consultations before I ended up with Dr. Holcomb. I had seen results of other people at Dr. Holcomb’s office and felt he was the best compared to the other two doctors. There’s a list of things that I could’ve had done, but what I liked about him is he decided to do what worked best for me at the time. I am 59 going on 60 and this facelift procedure literally... more
Dr. Holcomb is amazing – I felt very comfortable with him he always let me know upfront what was going on and what was best for me. He’s VERY honest. I’d recommend Dr. Holcomb to ANYONE. The whole experience was fabulous!!!
So I went to Dr. Holcomb for a partial facelift, necklift; I had my eyelids done and injections in my lips. Dr. Holcomb and his staff were very... more
I was unhappy with my "tired face" and lines on my cheeks. Dr Rieger recommended a facelift. It has been 2 months and I am so happy (especially with the lack of lines in my cheeks now). My eyes are much wider and brighter. The key is that it looks natural. I look refreshed (not pulled and pinched). GREAT JOB! I highly recommend him. more
I had the above three procedures, a total of eight hours of surgery. The first three days (as predicted by the surgeon) were awful, made me wonder if I did the right thing. I had terrible bruising and swelling. However, by week two, much of it had gone down. By two and a half weeks, I was "presentable," if you didn't look too closely. I'm now at six weeks and am extremely... more
To improve my self image, and to soften the looks of aging.
The procedure went well and took about 90 minutes.It was completely painless and done under local anestetic. I felt some slight discomfort for the first 2-3 days and having my head wrapped felt somewhat strange (around my head and under my chin). However, tylenol and cold compresses took care of the discomfort. After just 2... more
I had a facelift done one week ago today. I am already starting to see a younger me. I had it all done, plus one ear pinned back to match the other. Very little bruising and the incisions are already fading around my eyes. Most of the stitches are out. I've been back 3 times since I had it done. I considered myself a pretty girl of 51, but looked tired with bags under my eyes, crows feet,... more
