I was very unhappy with my face. I had a saggy neck and baggy jowls. I looked older than I really was (53).
I have looked at all the results of some and most of them are very good. I noticed that some of the younger people did not, get the results they may have wanted. I don't think this procedure is for people that young. Your result are not substantial.
I have nothing but great things to say for my Doctor and his staff. Everyone was helpful and friendly and I felt like part of the family when I had my last visit. I had my procedure in 10/09.
Did I have post operative pain??...Yes, it is surgery!!! Yes, there was brusing and swelling and I was sore. But with the medication they gave me, I was comfortable.
It did take longer than I anticipated to heal as much as I wanted to but it takes however much time it takes to heal. Everyone is a little different.
If you are unhappy with your face, look into it. I did and I have absolutely no regrets and when you see my picture, you will know why.
