I have suffered from migraines for nearly 30 years, getting worse and worse each year. In 2014 I had 65 migraines - resulting in lost days from work, missed weddings, dates with friends, Mothers day with my kids, working out- so much!
Found Dr Guyuron, a leading expert in migraine surgery and facial surgeries. He will perform the migraine surgery, along with brow lift, and lower lift,... more
Pictures coming soon! Scheduled for a short-scar facelift, endoscopic brow lift, autologous fat transfer, full face fractionated CO2 laser resurfacing, and labiaplasty on 11/19/14 (estimated total surgery time is 6 hours). I had a neck lift and full face 35% TCA peel 3.5 years ago, at age 41. I look forward to sharing my story as so many before me have done; I am grateful for Real Self and... more
I am a internist from the Youngstown area and had developed significant age appropriate facial creases and age spots. Crows feet and aging skin. I had a face lift with Dr. Guyuron about 11 or 12 years ago and was absolutely thrilled with the results. When the time came for a second procedure, my only concern was knowing I could have Dr. Guyuron perform the procedure. This procedure was... more
Surgery is scheduled for July 10. I am excited but also very nervous/scared. I sure could use any support that anyone has to offer. I still not sure if I want to do the hairline browlift or endo browlift my Dr said I could decide the day of the surgery. I found my Dr through RealSelf/Make Me Heal he had two people on this site that had facelifts and there results were awesome. I will post... more
This is truly the greatest investment I have made. I feel great. I look great. I had zero pain during and after my surgery and the entire experience with Dr. Vanek and his staff has been the best ever. With my new look, I feel like I get more respect at work. I get so many compliments from my friends and family and have never been asked if I had cosmetic surgery. The difference is so subtle,... more
I had cut in by my ears and after it was all over I couldn't see any difference in my face before and after the surgery. After the surgery, I had a lot of pain that I could handle if the surgery would have made my face look younger than before the surgery. The Doctors Office didn't even check it out after it was all over. more
I wanted to look younger, more youthful... I now have slanted, cat-like eyes and terribly obvious surgery scars near my hairline. My surgery was nearly a year ago.
Each time I have voiced my concerns about the result of the surgery, she becomes defensive and sharp - and immediately changes the subject to my diet or exercising habits. Very bizarre behavior. more
I thought I could go in and get some fillers and botox maybe a peel and get out the door looking younger. Two PS said - you need a lower facelift. Still in shock. My neck isn't bad, only some slight laxity there - I could live with it. My cheeks have definitely deflated. I was hoping for a good filler. Looking to connect with people who have been there to see if it is worth it or not. I want... more
I'm very happy with the results of my face and neck lift. This was a traditional full facelift. I had a lot of problems to address so the results are dramatic yet very natural looking. I had very little swelling and no bruising after the surgery and the incisons were so well hidden that I could go out in public a day after the procedure.By the way, I'm a 54 yr. old male and as many of you... more
