I am on day 3 after my stem cell facelift. I have ruined my face. I actually work as a patient coordinator for a corporation that processes stemcells. I was ...... let's say....encouraged greatly, to have this procedure done. They even paid for it. I have...had.. been blessed with a great face. The Dr. that they hired was rude and I actually never met him before the procedure. So, he had no idea what I wanted or most important...didn't want. As I was laying there...wide awake...I just kept saying that " I like my cheekbones please don't touch my cheeks in any way." The only thing I wanted was a tiny tiny tiny bit to fill my laugh lines. That's when he started jabbing into the area around my nose. Not shallow injections like I now know he should have been doing...but deep injections. I remember saying "Please Dr. I don't want to have big cheeks or a fat face. I only weigh 98lbs." He replied " You are injecting fat into your face.....you are going to have a FAT face." He laughed. It was at that point that I saw his needle going up towards my eye area and I stopped him. I wish that I could share pictures. If someone will tell me how, I will post them. My family cried when they saw me. My smile is now turned completely upside down due to the weight of the fat that he injected. My face has no contour around my nose....I look like a baloon, with a droopy sad smile. I have seen miracles with the use of adipose stem cells. Esp. with knees, shoulders, spines, diabetes. REALLY..it has been amazing to see the results and the smiles on the faces of the patients that have lived in pain for so many years and now have relief for the first time. Having said that.....I cannot recommend this for anyone that is considering altering their face in anyway. It's your face!!!!! Funny thing....this was my argument to my superiors when they were insisting that I needed to do this in order to speak to others about it and keep my job. They said.."You are going to be the face of ______!" I don't want to say the name of the Corp. that I work for. Well...hindsite is always so clear, isn't it. I would much rather have my face back, then that job..which I will probably lose now anyway due to the way I look. Please listen to that small voice inside you and JUST SAY NO!!! t
I would sooooo appreciate any suggestions. I am massaging the area as deeply as I can in hopes that the fat cells won't stick. I read something about ultrasound treatments...that it works if done within two weeks of procedure. I am fasting for 3 days, since I always lose weight in my face first and maybe I will lose some of the fat. HELP!!!! I don't even want to walk my dog outside. I look like a monster.
