Facelift, Upper/lower Eyelid, Earlobe, Breast Reduction/laser Bra - Marina Del Rey, CA

I have always considered myself to be an...

I have always considered myself to be an attractive and certainly very confident woman. Except for about the last 10 years. I am 49. I had a radical hysterectomy and some complications. I put on a great deal of weight. I have recently lost 70 pounds which resulted in sagging, droopy skin. My relaxed face was a frown. So sick of people telling me to smile! My upper eyelids sagged so much that they laid on my eyelashes. I perpetually raised my forehead to compensate. I couldn't relax it. I actually found myself feeling embarrassed with people and very unattractive. I literally felt ugly. And so self-conscious!

And that doesn't even address my breasts. Having been asexual for 10 years and not expecting that to change anytime soon, my face was my priority. Even though I wore a 34 extra long bra! I had already undergone surgery once for a reduction/lift 21 years ago. But I was still a DD.

I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to do something about it. It made sense physically, financially, and emotionally to do my face and breasts at the same time. My sister-in-law was a patient of Dr. Stevens and had a facelift a few years ago, as well as a reduction/laser bra. Her results were so natural and beautiful that I wanted the same for myself.

My surgeries were seven weeks ago and the difference is AMAZING! My face looks young again. My eyes are bright and open and my puffy bags are gone. There's no sagging skin on my face to be found. And I smile.

I don't know how he worked his magic with my breasts. They're up where they belong. And round and pert. I never thought I would feel confident or attractive again.

I am so happy that I did this. Dr. Stevens is a genius! And my hero. I am a new woman inside and out.

Photo Journal

I had Mom snap some pictures throughout the process. And then there are the selfie's. Looks as though I was using a fisheye lens. Somewhat distorted, but I think you'll find that the healing goes much faster than anticipated. I should mention that Dr. Stevens insisted that I quit smoking... another amazing benefit after 32 years!

A very happy ending...

I will bring the story to a close. This photo was taken exactly one month after my surgery. While it is not a good headshot, I wanted you to see the end result. I had LimeLight facial treatment and fillers, and my complexion is flawless. I had so much sun damage from having grown up in Southern California and living in Baja. Cory was my aesthetician.

I hope my review has been helpful. It should be noted that I have never posted on the web. I am not even on Facebook. But I want to reach out to others who are considering surgery. Do your homework. Dr. Grant Stevens and his staff are truly amazing! It is simple to do this from out-of-town and well worth the travel. I literally cannot imagine anybody giving me better results than he. So, so happy!!! Thank you! :0)
Los Angeles Plastic Surgeon

He was confident and knowledgeable. I felt like I was in good hands. I am an out-of-state patient. He did not rush me and took time to explain to me what we could do. In layman's terms. He was a good listener. He was caring and sensitive to my awful feelings about myself. Let's face it, that consult could've been very awkward and uncomfortable for someone who felt like I did. He and his entire staff put me at ease. My hand was held through the whole process. Extraordinarily professional and friendly. Funny to boot. Recommend, recommend, recommend!
