Took my lab work in for my surgery date coming up....

Took my lab work in for my surgery date coming up... The excitement is building... just want to start my review, on my work yet to come.... IF anything like last time, I will be looking 10 to 15 years younger in no time at all..... The staff was pleasant & prompt.... in 2 weeks I will go in for my pre-op...

5/2004

here I am a week ago

Questions

wanting ultimate results, What other procedures along with a face lift , can get you the best and optimal results????

Pre -Op this week

Thursday is My pre-op, excitement building.....here is a before taken last night,,,

using for before photo

before Photo

today is the day for Pre-op

Going for my pre op, am going to discuss, all options for the best results....=) excitement building.. wish me luck.... to be continued......

Pre-Op done

Went in for my pre-op, Dr. Spent a Long time with me, explaining, the procedures, asked my concerns and,answered all and every question... I also had discussed, a Thigh lift for down the road.... I lost 63lbs and work out daily up to 3hrs a day... but only so much you can tighten....
My face, I am getting Endo-brow lift, fat grafted to be put into cheeks & lips, and smooth my face and eyes... possibly taking skin from eye lids if needed, after endo, and fat taken out from under eyes.. So with that said, took in my prescriptions, and have my Md orders what I need to get to eat drink & wear.... 9am 5/28 I go in for face....6/4 breast & arms.... I am Ready......=)

2nd surgery I am getting a breast lift, and arms lifted... at 0 cost...
Being a Loyal and return patient has it's benefits, Dr. Clark, is more than reasonable, and he does, drop his prices on returning and with multiple surgeries patients... well at least thats My experience....
I am going to have my face, resurfaced or laser treated, after all surgeries... to help get rid of sun damage..

before with makeup

makeup.... a before....

Face Lift, Cheek & Lip Aug..Endoscopic forehead, Breast Lift & Arm Lift

I had Not Put The correct amount for all Procedures I am doing, 5/28 face, 6/4, Breast and arms.... Arms I am getting done at 0cost..... Count down is On...9 days away......

called MD

Put in a call, I want MD to look at My Photos I think I need my lower eyes done, MDs ON RS agreed as well, when asked....

That 1 of my main concerns, Which seemed to not be addressed or I am missing something.... Regardless, want him to get rid of those ugly bags under my eyes especially my right eye.... Nauseous...

So waiting on a call back, want to have all ducks in a row...

Heard back =)

Okay-
MD called....
he gonna do lower eyes, at face time or body time for $1,500 more.... Yay....
So I will be a new person.....

Now, after that 3 week doing laser....
and later.... Looking into thighs....
some of You are steering me to GO for it.... so..... to be continued...
BUT..... Ready yo enjoy the Holiday weekend....
and be ready for my transformation....=)

Feeling Fine

After, talking with < Office and Dr.'s assistant , Myrna, who is absolutely amazing, Just Love her, She is so helpful, and puts your mind at ease....
I am set to take on my transformation, with much appreciation , of the length of time spent with me, and questions answered.... MY face will now consist of, Lower eyes, fat grafting to lips and cheeks endoscopic brow lift, lower face tightening, and laser 3/4 weeks later...... Upper eyes will have fat removed if not enough with endo.....

I believe with this I will have my dream of looking like I feel a reality.....
Now, to enjoy the next 5 days before, my transformation....=)

I feel so happy my results will be absolutely amazing!!!!!!!

Dr Clark A-Class MD

This is my 3rd surgery with Dr. Richard P. Clark.... May I say Artist, Amazing, Wonderful...
10years ago, he made my dreams come true, a Flat tummy, face turned back in time.... and It's been awesome...

All In ALL, DR Clark is the MD to make your dreams come true..

Day 3

Doing Great, don't look great but feel good...
Slept well, pain subsiding, and lips & eyes going down...
Honestly happy I am doing Thighs in Sept... need the time after next wed, surgery, 3 back too back, Ah, No Thanks... Plus I have to baby sit all summer for my G-kids, and how could I.. be a mummy,,,,, Coming along and loving my lips and eyes , but I can see how, my uppers will need some attention.....

Later

well it's 4pm, and I am feeling pretty darn good... Today the worst day Naw, not here, I must say Dr.Clark is a true professional, I can see My Lovely results through the swelling, I know I will be Thrilled, after I am healed...
This is a Huge jump for me, after losing My weight that bogged me down for 20 years.. Having multiple surgeries, is going to make this old fat ugly duckling,of 3 years ago, into a Beautiful swan , for My Love...& Mostly for me!!!! I hope to be a Gorgeous or as Gorgeous as I can be for the man I love....on our wedding day... 11-2015, is when we plan to wed, I should be looking my best after all procedures are accomplished.... & healed.....Friends think I am being vain, and a waste of money...But I worked hard for 3 years to get where I am today... turned My health around, and now its time to look the part ......
If Considering a Facelift do it... Search for the right fit in surgeons, and commit... You won't be sorry...

Day #3

Feeling, better, but didn't sleep well, Not the pain, vicodin, doing the trick think it just wired me up...

Head getting itchy so healing YAY, shower on Sunday,,,,,
Face swelling coming down, but, looking at upper eyes think, he may need to revise them and take some skin off...after surgery he said he wanted to be sure I could close my eyes, so for me to wait... and see if needed, later....However, to get the look I want- Don't want to have that saggy skin,on upper eyes.... so far looks like it needs to go.... debating on nose too... Darn Fiancee had to ask if I was....having my nose done.....PLEASE> ( OPINIONS PLEASE ) Yay or Nay...
Lips still duckie and hurt so jello and diet 7up, do eat crackers with broth, and gonna make a berry protein smoothy today to drink... can't stand hot foods yet but lost 3lbs so I am happy..... the more the better.... I must admit, staying in the house gets old, Had to go breathe fresh air outside.... My Yorkies, are all cuddled up with me, they think I'm sick, it seems...
My Oldest daughter cant look at me... says it makes her sad???? Okay, guess, seeing Mom all bruised up....

Then ..... next week, Breast & Arms...& ???? maybe nose, after opinions....and revision of eyes if needed....

Needless, to say, I am so Happy and Looking forward to look the best I can for the Wonderful Man I am going to marry....He is Truly a Gift, from above.....

Day #4 AHHHHH a shower

Oh Boy did it feel good to get in the shower, get the bandages off, and clean up..
Feel like a new person...Keeping, My lips nice and supple still.... they drive me nuts if I don't... sleep better, just sitting up, & propped up, not so much...
making smoothies, with berries, spinach & yogurt & whey protein powder...

Feel Like a Human today, may not look like it, but sure better.....

Day #5.... Better & Better

Feel Wonderful today... I took a shower, straightened up the house, went in got My staples Out... Had to put makeup on, due to the fact , I look Like I went a few Rounds in the ring with Muhammad Ali- Even drove myself, I Love to Drive, and do well, So wasn't worried, However, My Friend at The office said that was a No No, 10 days... Opps..Then I went shopping at the grocery for my next go around on Wed... Still, swollen a lot, and MD said I'll have the slat eye look for a while have stitch there for a while... Other than That, doing Fine... Starting to take shape....

Day #6 Just keeps on getting better

Feeling Great #2 surgeries down and feeling fine, still, ducky baby ducky, bruised, and swelling down, eyes widening up, so all okay so far.....Know I am going to be on cloud 9 when done.....
Don't think twice Go To Dr. Richard Clark!!!!! he's a life changer!!!!

Loving My results, however will get a new photo this weekend my bday

Day 18

Look better each day, But when I have my 3rd surgery 9/24 I will need upper eyes done, My right eye has a big over hang of skin, and is quiet, irritating.MD wanted to be sure I could close my eyes, and I sure can, and more... Rather have been safe than sorry... However, The 1 eye is very bothersome, gonna be a long 3 months... No Kidding.... Other wise THRILLED.... My Birthday Picture

almost 3 weeks

Had a Follow up appointment today...
He happy with my face but, says my concerns on my eyes, he says I have to close them???? and my face will change more... after 6 months we will decide then...but my lips 1 side larger than the other???? Hmmmm, I have another follow, up on thursday, and will ask about.... Since I am having more done in Sept.. If needed this can be fixed then, if I am still lop sided some what, my lips before were lop sided as I look back at my before photos...so Hopefully He & his artistic abilities, will, get them to be better....
My Friend went in with me, and has Signed up, for a tummy tuck, thighs & butt lift.... she is EXCITED....
I can't rave enough about DR. Clark... he is AMAZING, just no other words, to explain him, but AMAZING ARTIST.... =) I am so Happy I did my homework, and went with him back in 04.... When I am done I will have a body By Clark, & Thrilled & proud to say Just that....I will post 3 week photo tomorrow....

3 weeks and feeling Good

Here is Me, so far after 3 weeks !!!!!! Loving every minute.... Better & better each day!!!!!

week 3

Had my after care appointment yesterday, got my stitches out of my eyes, AHHHH, also picked up some paint on solution, to grow, my eye lashes...=) have seen it works... laser to come 5 more weeks before I can do that...
Have my consult for bottom 1/2 Aug 20th....

Almost a month!!!!

Wow, approaching a month....
Okay, still edema, in face, but feels more like me again... I am tender in areas, IE, head , and cheeks, which is normal... My Md said 8 weeks for edema, and swelling to be way down, and before I can do laser, I have decides to wait til after summer is over to do laser, since have 1 possibly 2 more surgeries to go... still think right eye will need attention, upper lid, but he wants to wait 6 months to see, and if We agree, it needs attention, can do right in office with a local, Snip N go, I love it... Thinking on my nose, the tip of it as kinda bulbous,?????? Maybe... all the surgery is addicting, as readily available...My transformation, is Priceless.
Yesterday I ran into a man I knew in my 17-21 when I ran a small business, he saw me, and said, How I haven't changes a bit... boy he had... Thats what we wanna hear, not WOW you are over done!!!! happy, yes, I am.... =)

Week 4+

Been so busy with Life, I haven't had time to up date, I will get a picture posted on Wednesday for week 5...
My face is alot less swollen lips, have come down a Considerable amount... bottom, lip is still, lope sided...and upper okay...will see, in Sept when I have my bottom 1/2 done, if more fat needs to be added, as well as my upper eye lids, I think they need just some skin taken out, as they swell, and it is bothersome..But MD says wait 6 months as I previously posted... I still do feel, Edema in my face, but all is looking good and I am over joyed with my results... Each week I am Happier....Life changing having these, surgeries done...

Week #5

Week 5~
coming along nicely, still some edema, in my face, and lips continue to change as well... I hope I don't lose much more..
Stitches healing nicely, Itch at times but thats just healing.... My eyes, look much better, but still, believe I need Right eye addressed... But I must wait...
I have a MD appointment today and 3 weeks from now I do My After photos..
anyone considering a FL, In The Sacramento Area, seek Dr Richard P.Clark, He is absolutely amazing ....
I look natural and Not over done... He has tuned back the hands of time... and i am forever grateful & Happy with My results which are still changing daily..... Here is My week 5 updated photo

Eye bothering me

here are photos of that eye that I think needs attention...

My Eye

Woke up again this AM, with My right eye lid swollen and hanging down...???? I know it's from sleeping so hard on that side, But My Right side of my face isn't numb anymore left, another story, so right healing faster... Left eye is Fabulous but this right eye is So annoying... I go back To My MD, next week, Thursday, I am going to show this photo and explain this to him, So Happy with everything, but this..... I am starting to get awesome comments, now that all is settling.. I can smile finally, now that my lips have gone down, and all my expressions are coming back... My daughter even commented, how , much better I am coming along.... The healing process, is slow, so it seems, But so worth the wait... Just part of the process...
DR. Clark is a Master at the art of Plastic surgery, and I am so Fortunate to have him as My MD... don't think twice, Go To DR. Clark

July 4th Fun....

I felt Good enough to take some 5 1/2 week photos to show the improvements...Each day brings something new... Your face relaxes with time, and The real You will shine through... LOVE My results...

Week 6.....

Already week 6, wow, swelling, almost gone, I think is all gone, I go to MD tomorrow, gonna ask again about My eye lids, I know, I am OCDing on them , LOL...
I am loving my results and, ever changing results.... My sweetie, & Kids say, I look like me again, but much younger.... Just what the Doctor ordered..... Here are some fun pic's I took to celebrate my 6 weeks...

Before & Afters

Here is my before and afters of weight loss

more After losing weight Photos from my photoshoot

after losing the weight, I entered a contest & won, These are some of the photos from that!!!!

My eye, gets a new, look

Went in on Thursday, to be checked out, and asked about my upper eyes, He asked, want it done today??? then in Sept @ 4months if Not til Nove @6months will do both upper eyes.... But to keep me quiet, LOL, he did a lil cut where, that darn, flap of skin, I have been nagging about was..... LOL, now I look like I ran into Rocky.... hahah, the things we will do for beauty, I am 1 of the first to say sign me up!!!!

moving along to week 7......

Each waking day is a new, New Improvements, Less, swelling, more feeling in my face, where, it was adjusted back to where it used to be.... My cheeks are AMAZING, I had forgotten, what nice cheek bones I had, except when I see my children..
I bought some new mac makeup, and was amazed, how flawless, my skin and face looks.... The scars are invisible, and have been for weeks.. My lips I have to admit I am sad, they are going although, I can smile again with teeth and look more natural, like before...But I do HOPE, I will end up, with fuller lips, than before. Thinking, if my lips go all the way back like before, may ask to have him add more fat In my next surgery, I also may have have another touch up, in Nov to do upper eyes, if they not done in sept.... So a work in progress, which is fine with me... I still am going to do laser, this winter.... after 3rd surgery.... I have been using the eye lash system to grow, them... May I say AMAZING, 3 weeks and I see a huge improvement already with NO complications.....

a frightful before

Here is a Photo the night before my FL.... Yikes!

hello, Been MIA, summer been Crazy, working baby sitting, remodeling homes....
My last up date which was 2 weeks ago, My MD, fixed my right eye as It was driving me crazy, slow healing, and I love that eye, as it is healing, HOWEVER, now my left looks way out of place, and weird... FIgures.... I am assuming when we do lower body he will address, my eye lids and do both eyes to look a like, I will be sure to find out if not then when we will... the 1 he fixed, is The way I was hoping my eyes would look after FL... Everything else is healing Great, have all feeling back in face, incisions are invisible now, cheeks look fabulous, and lips, I must say Wish they had stayed more... almost gone now... MAY, have him inject more fat into when I do lower body.... do want a lip... I noticed my lips are un even Naturally.... 1 side bigger than the other , so wondering if he can fix them surgically! gonna ask.... Hubby, hates the "vanity' part , of this process.. what can you say but... I wanna look how I feel.... I am Happy with results and HOPE to be even happier once, Final results are achieved.... a definite, work in progress!!!!!

What are you using on your incision lines/scars in front of ears? Mine are all healed up but a little red (not much though)...I have heard pure avocado oil, jojoba oil, vit e capsules....I have tried all three intermittently and also behind the ears. My left ear front is healed now (just a little red), behind there is clear and no scabs...the right side front of ear is very nice, no redness, but the back still has a line of scabbing (for the second time) and I am leaving it alone except to cleanse with q tip soap and water twice a day, apply avocado oil, and that is it to soften and protect. I just want to avoid scarring as much as possible so looking for suggestions. PS is vague about that. Thanks!

I love transformations like yours, they are so inspiring! And you did the full package, too - weight loss, bust lift, brachioplasty (arm lift), and whole entire face! Wow. You look ten years younger already! Best of luck in your healing, and keep us posted!

You look great. I will be following your next journey,i will stay tuned. ;)

I think you look wonderful. But, I can say that having my eyes done, both upper and lower, were the Best thing I did. My uppers had a lot of skin and were fatty right under the brow. Taking that skin and fat out made a world of difference. My eyes are so much more open, I can actually see better. Also, that was the easiest of my procedures to heal. That seemed like a piece of cake. Let us see your final results.
  • Reply
Thank You so Much, I sure will,when I get them achieved...I still am having another surgery in October....
  • Reply
K, .....In doing your right eye lid is there anything else besides removing skin that he did to raise that brow to a higher position? Your brow lift raised them both evenly so just wondering what additional was done. You have been on quite a transformational journey that not every one could handle in terms of discipline, persistence and vision.....congrats, grace
  • Reply
No Just the eye brow lift... it looks like 1 raised higher after the eye was done so assuming other will as well, hoping... Thanks so much Grace, It's a Journey thats for sure, buy this time next year, hope to be pretty much done, and healed....=)

It's so easy to find bits n pieces that just need that little "tweak" to be just perfect, be careful, it's pretty addictive this plastic surgery stuff. I think you look fantastic. Well maybe your other eye could match lol. You are a legend.
  • Reply
LOL Klaus, ya, I know it is and can be very addicting.... Ya, The other eye, for sure...I Look like Quasi, Motto, =) need it done soon, In Very soon!

Hang in there,you'll get to perfection real soon.. Sounds like you are having a busy summer,WOW! I need to do remodeling on home next.
