Eyelids resting on my eyelashes initiated my original visit. After consultation, I proceeded with the eyelids, a face lift, fat grafting, and a chemical peel. I am very pleased with the results. I love seeing the looks on my friends' faces and I don't mind showing my medicare card and getting second glances at the face that goes with it. more
I am a 58 year old female who has always looked younger than my age until 8 years ago when I turned 50 and menopause literally caused my face to melt almost over night. I have researched plastic surgeons in NJ and NY and have a consultation scheduled with Dr Dan Baker in NY in a few weeks. Very anxious!
I have been waiting 7 months for this appointment, I made it back in December 2013,... more
I have been through alot of procedures, 14 years ago I had a brow lift. 12 years ago, lower eye. 8 years ago Contour threadlift ( what a waste)./ sculptra injections left lumps, and had cortisone injections to decrease the lumps only with leaving me atrophied tissue, and big deep wrinkles.
I had been told I was not a candidate for facelift because my face is so thin, and thin skinned. ... more
Excellent staff, excellent doctor. Dr. Newman was patient and went through all the pros and cons of the surgery for me, MULTIPLE times. The surgery went without a problem. Recovery did not take as long as I expected, in a week the bruising and swelling greatly decreased. During my recovery, I saw Dr. Newman everyday after surgery for over a week, just for him to check on me, and he didn't... more
For all the anxiousness I had regarding the procedures I wanted to have done I was so surprised at how well everything went!
Dr. Ciardullo was patient and kind. He answered all the questions I had and included some I hadn’t thought of. He has a good background affiliated with cosmetic surgery and good credentials and is highly thought of in his profession. His assistant, Bobbi, is... more
I am so blessed the surgery is over. Recovery is going really well and today is lucky day 13 from surgery. I am getting stronger each day. I read so many stories on this site....thank you to everyone who takes the time to update us. I will share more as I learn more. I will attach pictures for you to see too. Have a good day!

In June of '12 I had a face-lift along with an eye-lift in anticipation of my son's wedding in the early Spring of this year, and I was more than pleased with the results and continue to be. These were not my first procedures with Dr. Ciardullo as I also had a tummy-tuck as well as a breast-lift on separate occasions. Again, I have been thrilled with the results. I am 56 yrs. old and people... more
I have had a rhinoplasty from Dr. Slupchynskyj. The procedure and subsequent after care is what made my final decision to have him do my face lift, or should I say "SlumpLift", a technique that he pioneered. I am no stranger to cosmetic surgery and have to say how absolutely amazed I am with my recovery. Seven days post op. I had my sutures and staples removed. Two days after that I was back... more
I had a mid facelift. It has been emotionally devastating. I don't recommend having any surgery. I am left with asymmetry all over my face. I feel extremely self conscious. One side of my face is higher than the other. My mouth turns up on one side. My lips are uneven- on side higher. I have an indentation on the side that is higher. When I talk I have strange lines that extend from my mouth.... more
I went to Dr. M. Verga thru a recommendation of a Plastic Surgery "Consultant". He seemed professional and seemed to listen to my concerns.... I liked the idea that he prided himself on the fact that he did NOT need to use drains on my face after surgery due to his training and experience... Good right??? Big mistake! He may be skilled to operate "quickly" and perhaps efficiently, but his... more

My last facelift was 2002 by Dr. Gallagher I was much younger than so it was a little different this time. This week she has performed a masterfull job. I am ecstatic.
Naturally it is only a week and I am still slightly swollen and bruised. It was most professtional and very thorough. It really builds your morale. If anyone would like to do this give her a call and go for a ... more
I was interested in cosmetic surgery because of my sagging jowl and lack of definition in my chin. Dr. Jacono returned these features perfectly with minimal pain and no post surgical problems at all. The surgery went well and as awful as I looked immediately following the surgery I was back at work with noticeable bruising on my chin after 12 days. Dr. Jacono saw me every 3 or 4 days post... more
2 weeks from today, I am so excited! Every morning I wake up and look in the mirror and smile, because I am finally going thru with it. Started taking arnica Montana (they said it has to build in your system) and vitamin c, drinking plenty of water, which is hard for me. I have been to 3other doctors before I chose Dr Capella. I instantly liked him. He didn't push me in any direction. ... more
I am 43 years old, I have extremely light, good skin but my lower face and neck are quite lose and droopy. I researched 4 Plastic Surgeons, 1 of whom I have for previous procedures and loved but Dr. Kassir uses muscle transfer as a filler and I really liked the idea of that since fat does has very mixed reviews and I have health issues so my PCP does not want me using any un natural fillers.... more
I had a face lift with laser resurfacing 8 weeks ago today. I explored the most recommended surgeons in NYC and decided to go with Dr. Rosenberg, as I felt he made a connection with me as a person/face and not "ho hum, another facelift" I am thrilled with the outcome, subtle but significant changes and I look like a better version of me--fully my goal and his. He spent a lot of time discussing... more
Mini lift and brow lift, fantastic just wonderful, my face looks much younger and natural, the procedure was to three weeks ago and the scar is already very thin this means that in a couple of months will be almost invisible, last year he made my nose cause of an error from another doctor here in europa where l live and now after a year my nose looks very nice, has been worth crossing the... more
It has been one year since Dr. Rosenberg operated to essentially reconstruct my face. I am thrilled with the result and could not recommend Dr. Rosenberg more highly. I had been thinking of plastic surgery for several years but was a believer in "aging gracefully". That is until a friend sent me a picture taken on a trip! I began asking around for referrals to plastic surgeons. My... more
Although I could write a detailed essay, I'll be brief: I had mini-facelift at age 56 and the results were amazing (to my surprise, although a 'neck lift' is not considered part of the "mini lift", my turkey neck disappeared!) Six years later, still looking 10 yrs younger, I began to see a bit of slippage caused by 'old mother gravity'. Before it got worse - off I went to see Dr. Prasad for a... more
I had my first (and what I thought would be my only) face lift 10 years ago when I was 53.
After months of researching the subject and deciding between the top doctors in New York City, I made a considered, careful choice of actual procedure and plastic surgeon.
Comparing before and after photographs, patient referrals and Castle Connolly listings, I felt comfortable and confident I... more
