At 65 years old, I was tired of looking in the mirror and seeing the lines and wrinkles that my mother had. I went to the office of Dr. Schreiber and was immediately impressed. I did not see any other surgeons and booked that day. I'm glad I did! My new look is younger and the wrinkles are gone. He is the BEST!!! more
I did not want a generic kind of plastic surgeon that had general experience. What I needed done on my face was considered major surgery, therefore I wanted a skilled surgeon but equally important, I wanted a surgeon who appreciated and was talented in the ‘art’ of the procedure. I did not want to look like a different person, I wanted to look like an ‘improved me’.
I learned of Dr... more
Over the years I have been reasonably happy with my body and my face, but over the last 2 years, I started avoiding mirrors. I just didn't like seeing myself looking sad or angry when I was actually in a good mood. It started with my neck and then the jowls started sagging, too. When a family member (with the same neck and jowls) got a FL done 3 years ago, I was impressed with the improvement... more
I didn't have an actual "turkey neck". But, when I saw pictures of myself, there was always more than 1 chin. I hated it! I'm 64 but certainly don't feel or act old. I wanted a new neck! I was amazed that the procedure had minimal pain. It's only been 2 weeks since my surgery, but I am very happy! more
Not long after my face lift that included upper/lower eye lid surgery I sent Dr. Basile a personal note that I wish to share with those searching for the "right" doctor to perform plastic surgery. It read:
"Dear Dr. Basile,
I want to let you know that I am most grateful for your pre- and post-operative care and moreover, feel very blessed to have had you and your team perform the... more
Had a face and neck lift. It couldn't have gone better. Dr. Ron Schuster was so patient with me and my fears. He was fast to respond to my many calls and questions. His staff is the greatest. So kind and caring. The surgery went well and the post op visits were always quick and loved the side entrance for privacy. more
I am an R.N. who gets to meet all Dr.'s and see their work in advance. I have considered facial plastic surgery for a while but had concerns. I met IRA PAPEL, M.D. and he allayed all of my concerns. I felt immediate comfort. I am now 8 weeks post-op and I am SO HAPPY with my results. Dr. Papel is a true professional, he's kind and considerate. He was accessible 7 days a week. The entire... more
Dr. Ira Papel – Outstanding Physician / Surgeon!
I first consulted with Dr. Ira Papel about what services he felt would benefit me the most as I expressed my wish to achieve a pleasing look to the eye without appearing artificial in any way. At that time, I was new to the field of aesthetics. After careful examination of my face, he suggested having services such as nasolabial fillers,... more
I've always had a bit of turkey gobbler, it's actually a running family joke among the women in my family (as we all seem to have inherited this wonderful gene). My gift to myself for my 40th birthday was to say goodbye to the gobbler! I had asked my plastic surgeon a few years back what could be done (I've been going to him for a few years for Botox twice a year), and he told me I was not... more
Dr. Papel was thoughtful in his approach, and excellent in the outcome. I had my eyes done at the same time (not included in price above since this website only allows for one procedure to be indicated.) I had researched many physicians in the Baltimore area and a meeting with him to discuss approach and seeing pictures of past results I found someone who would improve my appearance without... more
I am a 78-year old woman. I was dissatisfied with my droopy look and especially with my baggy neck, but I was afraid of the mask-like look of some plastic surgery I had seen. I talked with Dr. Schreiber, and he addressed all my concerns. It's only a few weeks after my surgery and the results are truly amazing. I can't believe my youthful look--with no artificial appearance. I'm sorry I waited... more
I'm really concerned of my DH reaction when I tell him I want F/L, neck,browlift and upper eyes done.
I'm 52. I have cystic acne scars on my cheeks chin, that I hope will be improved with the procedure along with getting rid of the lines and wrinkles. I look in the mirror and feel very depressed as the aging and volume loss has just increased how bad it looks. I also have one young child... more
This doctor transferred fat unevenly to my cheeks. One side was severely lopsided causing my mouth to be crooked. He caused ectropion of both eyes and removed too much skin from my upper eye lids. The lack of skin on my upper lids prevented me from being able to shut my eyes completely or keep them shut when I slept. He cut out my nasal labial folds leaving me with permanent facial scars... more
I have had a sagging area under my chin like a turkey gobble and bags under my eyes forever. The "Gobble" is hereditary (my Mom had it and my Brother has it too) but the eyes are just "age". Also dislike the marionette lines on the side of my mouth. I have had
Juvaderm over the years and also had some collagen injections and while the collagen helped, everything is temporary. I finally... more
Being an advocate of a good diet, yoga and exercise, I have always been slim and healthy. I have very few if any wrinkles, and I stay out of the sun. But by the time I was 40, I was already experiencing some sagging in the jawline, the skin under my chin was beginning to droop, and my brow seemed heavier. I was frustrated by these signs of aging when I did not feel old. I had undergone a... more
I had thought about it for a long time. I actually had him remove fat from my neck, a facelift, eyes and nose job. the works. i did it because cancer reminded me that life is short and i wanted me inside and outside to match. more
