Have had numerous surgeries with Dr. Sweis and have extremely pleased with my results! I noticed I had a double chin and sagging joeels that made me feel very self conscious and I decided I wanted to do something about it. Recently I had a rhinoplasty, mid facelift and neck lift and was thrilled with the improvements from before to after.
Dr. Sweis examined my suture sites, and was... more
30 years ago Dr Hanna gave me a face and eye lift. Last year a dear friend of mine had HER face lift done also by Dr Hanna. When I saw how wonderful she looked and scrutinized MY mirror image...I KNEW it was time to return and recapture that fresh look again. I HATED my jowls and neck, wrinkles around my eyes and the tired look. Being in the public eye as a 40 year Polynesian dancer and a 20... more
Dr. Hanna is a miracle worker! I looked to old. Now I look so much younger – I look like I feel. He gained my trust when I visited for dysport (via Groupon special). There was no hard sell. His many years of extensive experience enabled him to give me a natural look, tailored to my face. The knowledgeable nurses warmly answered all of my questions (they’d had the surgery themselves)... more
When I reached my late 40s I wanted to rejuvenate my face and look refreshed and younger. My forehead, eyes and entire facial area seemed to have sagged a bit. I had read about various procedures and gone to some informational seminars by board-certified plastic surgeons, and was ready to consult with one. I saw Dr. Laurie Casas listed in Chicago Magazine's "Top Doctors" list and selected her... more
63 years old with recent 85 lb weight loss over the last 3 years...weight stable.
So...I wanted to look as pretty as I felt. Laurie was able to look at pictures of me in my 30's and help me look the same...but better. Nothing overdone, nothing artificial. We then used voluma for checkbones and laser for scar reduction under my chin. Incredible results. more
I initially visited Dr. Mustoe because I had incurred deep indentations or soft tissue damage on either side of my eight-year old chin implant when it became infected during dental implant surgery. I had spent a year on antibiotics combating infections, facial swelling and finally, seeping boils on either side of my chin implant. When my boils dried up, I visited two local plastic surgeons... more
I'm scheduled to have a full face/neck lift, upper and lower eyes, a browplexy and fat grafting around my mouth.
I'm getting more scared as the time gets closer. Reviewing all the posts on real self is very helpful and supportive, but so overwhelming. I saw six different PS before deciding to go with dr. Epstein. I hope I made the right decision.
This picture clearly shows my drooping... more
Dr Jeffrey Weinzweig and his staff are beyond wonderful!
I met Dr Weinzweig five years ago. That was my lucky day!!!
It was obvious from the start, that he was everything a fine surgeon should be--kind, compassionate, patient and very talented.
Eight months ago, after much thought, I decided to have a face lift and upper eyelid lift. I wanted to undergo this surgery to make me feel better... more
Dr. Geldner removed the gel which was injected into my face few years ago. Then he did the face lift. My face looks awesome.
I had couple procedures done to remove the gel before but unfortunately the results were not good. My daughter recommended Dr. Geldner.
We met and discussed procedures and medication. Then he did the procedure. He and his staff are wonderful. I recommend him. more
I felt compelled to write about my experience with Dr. Byun, so those who are looking to get any procedures done can make an informed decision.
First, Dr. Byun advertises himself as a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, which is one of the biggest reasons why I chose him. Unfortunately for me, I found out AFTER the surgery that his certification expired in 2012. I don’t know if he has renewed... more
54 years old—buying myself a facelift for 55!
I’m a healthy, in-shape 54 year old. Lost 50lbs 5 years ago, no sugar for 6 years, no alcohol for 16. I swim 150 laps every week & enjoy water aerobics 3x/week. I have taken very good care of my face; started moisturizing my face/neck 2x/day since the age of 12. Most mistake me for at least 10-15 younger than my age. My only downfall is... more
Now I love my neck. I had surgery 2 months ago and I am so thrilled with the results. Chicago plastic surgeon Clark Schierle, MD, PhD did an amazing job. I was very nervous about having a facelift but Dr Schierle was very patient and kind. He understood my worry. His staff and the staff a the surgical center made sure that I was as comfortable as possible. I had bandages on for a day. The... more
Getting geared up and preparing for my procedures (facelift, brow lift, blephs, neck lift, and fat transfers). Shopping for my first week low sodium foods, taking my arnica and Vitamin C, and just trying to stay calm and picture the after, and not the during. Will post before pics soon so I can be followed the whole way through.
Five days out until surgery. I stumbled upon an article... more
Dr. Mustoe is a great plastic surgeon with decent experience. I had a facelift and I was not happy with. I consulted Dr Mustoe and he did a revision. His work is perfectly done and he corrected all the defects in the first facelift. He was very professional. He has broad experience in face-lifting. I am very happy with his work and I highly recommend him. more
Well I had some hanging skin under my chin and jawline and I just couldn't take it anymore so I went to Dr. Galiano which is the doctor I had my breast augmentation from for a consultation to discuss the procedure. I weighed the risks verses the outcome and decided that I would go ahead with the surgery although I am pretty young to have this done more
After the surgery it was very painful and I had to stay at a hotel. It would of been better if I could of stood at a hospital or go home for the night. But otherwise I was treated very good by the doctor and the staff before and after my surgery The outcome of my surgery was disappointing. I really don't know what to say about the procedure than what I have said.
Dr Ross really is a... more

I had a Rhytidectomy, commonly known as a face lift. It was a very positive experience due to Dr. David Shifrin. He is both extremely skilled and very compassionate to your needs and concerns. He never rushed me when asking questions before surgery and after surgery he kept in contact with me so that I never felt alone with my concerns and thoughts. Due to his expertise, the bruising was... more
I was approaching a key birthday and, while many told me I looked younger than my age, I was unhappy that sagging muscles made me look tired all of the time. I had a neck lift, face lift and lower eye surgery 7 weeks ago and found it to be a remarkably painless process. The worst part of the recovery for me was sleeping propped up on pillows, instead of on my side, for multiple days after the... more
