I was looking for a revision eyelid surgery to remove mild scarring on the upper lids. Plus a mini face lift. I was pretty naive and trusting having been recommended by a well known plastic surgery agent to this man. In the event I was 'sold' the full 'works'but knew not better and went ahead. I cannot speak for others but this was my experience.
My result were extremely artificial looking and obvious, and continue to be so some year on. At a slim and youthful 42 years old, on presentation, I certainly did not need an extensive deep plane lift and neck restoration plus extensive eye lid surgery. Eleven hours later, time on operating table, my natural beauty was gone forever, but their bank account was enriched by many thousand dollars.

I cannot speak for others but only from my own personal experience I found this practice to be all about skillful and professional self hype, rather than what is good for the patients long term interests. I went for a consultation re eyelid scar revision and lwr face lift! The procedures are not fully explained in the consultation, the severity is simply not mentioned and they give you a thick paper pamphlet to read,after the surgery! This appears to be a carefully constructed effort to cover all eventualities, other than keep stressing about the recovery period,I found it not that helpful. If, as in my case, the surgery was so extensive that a MAJOR recovery period, virtually one year, was to be expected it would have been better to have had that personally explained. I ended up being sold a full facial rejuvenation. Which I most certainly did not need and was lucky it is only my face that has been permanently altered and not my health. This is a very professional machine and it is easy to be sucked in.
