I'm leaving my personal sentiments out and only making factual statements in this review of the facelift procedure that Dr. Yaremchuk performed on 9/23/14. Initially the jowling Dr. Yaremchuk left me with one month prior looked as if it had been completely corrected w/o any new nerve injuries (he injured my L. buccal nerve and R. marginal mandibular with the previous operation, injuries which... more
Extraordinary doctor! Dr. Y. performed 2 procedures in year 2000 and in 2010 Half lift. I look at least 20 years younger and very natural. I find very important to maintain my skin after surgery by attending medical spas and perform non invasive procedures. After all, plastic surgeon is not a GOD, but dr. Y. comes close…
Outstanding doctor. Very happy with the outcome.The doctor... more
LOVE my results!!! I am 54 years old and was not happy with my jowls and turkey neck. People always told me I didn't look my age but I was not happy. Dr. Russo has done surgery for me before and I trusted him to do a good job for me this time. I am thrilled with the results! People think I am 40! Dr. Russo is so supportive and gave me all the info and support I needed before and after the... more
I decided to do face lift when I turned 50. I had sagging jaw line (jowls) and frown lines. Face lift is the best thing I have done for myself. I look ten years younger and loving my face. Not to mention I am taking much better photos. The results were amazing! I get compliments all the time. I would do it again in a heartbeat. The recovery was not bad. I was never in pain and I was fully... more
As I recently have been interested in seeking a new job, I realized that keeping physically fit would not address my aging face/neck which were not in sync with my body. As an educated person, I believe one needs to do their homework and research not only the credentials of a surgeon but references and second, third and fourth opinions. I was quite nervous and had four consults with highly... more

(Where I live) to compare price etc. I decided on Dr Samaha and his team based on his expertise and... more
I had a facelift last Friday. So far everything has gone well, as well as expected. I was very nervous going in but the nurses and my doctor took good care of me and prepared me for everything. When I got home I took the prescribed pain pill and sleeping pill and made it thru the first night. Day 1 post-op went by slowly but with a lot of ice packs and pain med I made it thru. Day 2... more

I was seventy-years-old and very unhappy with my saggy neck and, to a lesser degree, my face. I spoke to two plastic surgeons and each of them offered a variety of set menus to choose from.
Doctor Del Vecchio was entirely different. He looked closely and carefully at my face saying, “You’ve lost a lot of weight.” True: six pounds a... more
I turned 44 in November of this year and had a facelift last week. I am so grateful to the women on this board who shared their experiences that I wanted to share mine for anyone considering a facelift.
Background: When I turned 40 no one could believe I was *actually* 40 because I looked so young. Two years later I got serious about losing those "last ten pounds" and when I did... more
It has been 3 weeks since I had a facelift and chin implant. This is my second facelift in eight years. I decided to get surgery to tighten up my neck and jaw line.
The first few days were tough. I couldn't eat because it hurt to chew. My ears were swollen and felt numb. I slept sitting up in bed with many pillows to keep from bruising. There wasn't much pain just discomfort.
I had... more

First night was uneventful. Woke up at 2:30 am with moderate pain, took pain meds, back to sleep and... more
