The evidence of aging obvious in my face and neck...

The evidence of aging obvious in my face and neck really bothered me, I hoped that the procedure would make me more attractive and enhance my self image.
Truly a wonderful experience, ABSOUTELY...

I am a generally a happy person, enjoying my work, family and community life immensely. I see blessings everywhere. But as I grew older, I would look in the mirror and see a face and neck that just did not match the spirit that lives within. The face was haggard with loose hanging flesh and a constant sad expression. The face felt old and tugged at my satisfaction with my appearance. I finally decided to check into cosmetic surgery to see if it would be a realistic, reasonable option for improving my appearance. I knew pretty much nothing about cosmetic surgery, but common sense told me that the most important factor would be selecting an excellent surgeon, someone very knowledgeable, skilled, and experienced. I called the office of one of my family doctors, a trusted man who has cared for my family for many years. Knowing that this doctor sometimes teaches medical students and has connections with physicians that do cosmetic surgery, I left a message with his staff. I asked the doctor to give me that name of the surgeon he would recommend if I was his wife looking for someone to do a face lift. Three days later, someone from his office called me. She told me that the doctor has called a number of colleagues to see what their recommendations would be and the name most frequently given was that of Dr. N. The selection of the physician was made easy for me by a doctor that I know well and trust!
My experience with Dr. N and his staff has been exceptional from the first appointment. The doctor listened carefully as I explained what I hoped to improve about my appearance. He offered his recommendations for improvement, carefully providing information about what he could do, what the surgery and recovery would be like and what results I could expect. I found him and his staff to be down-to- earth, personable, warm, compassionate, responsive and very positive. His kind and reassuring approach alleviated my anxiety about the procedure.
After the surgery he was made himself available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to discuss concerns or, if the need arose, see me to check on any concerns reported. The day of surgery went exactly as he said it would. I was well sedated and had no awareness of the procedure. I needed some pain medication for a couple of days, but the pain was not severe. I was pleasantly surprised that I did not have as much swelling or bruising as I had anticipated. By the fourth day I was bored and ready to get out of the house. The entire experience was much easier than I suspect most people would predict.
I continue to be stunned with the results of the surgery. I have experienced much more improvement in my appearance than I had hoped for and am quite pleased to report that the image I now see in the mirror is a much better match for the spirit that lives within. I am complimented daily by friends, family and coworkers about the improvement in my appearance- everyone agrees that I look much younger and am much more attractive than I was before the surgery. I could not be more pleased with the experience or final results. Dr. N is an competent, talented surgeon and a kind, caring person. I highly recommend him to anyone considering facial cosmetic surgery.
My feelings about Dr. Nayak have not changed a bit...
