I searched for almost a year for just the right doctor, attended seminars, saw several well known and highly recommended plastic surgeons. I chose a doctor who only does faces as he gets to work only on his patients face.
I had a full endoscopy face lift, eyelids, neck surgery and laser on a few spots ( under my eyes and forhead). Took 8 hours and full anesthesia. He took lots lof before pictures, showed me a computer image of what I should look like when he is done and gave me a whole,series of vitamins and pills, creams to start taking 2 weeks prior to surgery. This would decrease swelling, infections and blood flow, He saw me everyday for the first week at his office and next 2 weeks, 3 times a week. My experieince was a good one and although I had pain for a few days, swelling for 2 months, it was worth it and I got the results I had hoped for.
