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 made a quick decision to do the complete facelift, upper eyelid,etc.
I was a bit overwhelmed by it all as it involved 4 hour trip to Melville and holidays.
But dr. M and the staff was there for me. The procedure although several hours seemed like no time at all. Instantly, the eye lift procedure made it easier for me to read. And now I can wear eyeliner without it smudged all over!. ... more
Facelift, Upper & Lower Eyelids, Fractional Laser 1/2 lower face,
Botox on Forehead. At 63 I possessed jowls, a turkey sagging neckline,
bags under and above my eyes, as well as a badly furrowed forehead. All
this after keeping myself relatively thin and exercising like crazy. [I
am not lying!] But the worse of all was that I could not stand to look
at my face in the mirror. Enter Dr.... more
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 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
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
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
For my 50th birthday, I've had a perfectly done facelift. I disappeared from my daily life for two weeks and a half, and was afraid people might tell me I had changed. Actually, since I had my facelift, I look less tired, more radiant, younger but I stlli look myself, I'm just me ten years younger. I feel so happy everyday when I look at myself in the mirror and I don't know how to thank Dr... more
He did a poor job on a face lift, under eye puffiness and eye lift. I asked him to fix it but he refused. In less then a few months one of the eyes were already sagging and still had puffiness. The facelift started sagging within a year. I tried to get him to fix only the eyes but he wouldn't call me back. more
I'm 51, even though I've been told I look good for my age, I was starting to look tired around my eyes and getting frown-like marionette lines around my mouth. It was VERY important to me that I look natural. I wanted to achieve an overall fresher, younger appearance but without any visible obvious telltale signs of work. I’ve heard that many Los Angeles celebrities use NYC surgeons who are... more
It's a terrible thing for a woman (especially a vain one)to lose her looks. The feeling of being "invisible" to men is devastating and a constant reminder of how old we are getting. I had been told years ago by someone ten years older than I at the time that 62 was a real turning point for her and that everything that had "held up" now definitely could no longer... more
I had a lower face/neck lift last month. The surgery required two incisions, one behind my ear and one in front of it. I was under general anesthesia and had no idea what was going on but my husband said it took 3+ hours. I came out of it and woke up bandaged like a mummy with gauze and tape around my entire head. This surprised me a little but was to keep me from ripping the fresh incisions... more
