About 4 years ago, when I turned 50, non-invasive laser treatments no longer produced the results I was looking for. I looked tired and older than my years. This had a significant impact on my sense of well-being and self-confidence. It was time to "go under the knife."
After months of careful deliberation, I decided to go for facial rejuvenation - upper/lower eyelid surgery, traditional brow lift (my forehead is high), full face lift. To be honest, after reading stories about how quickly others had healed, I expected to do the same. The truth is that my healing took longer.
I felt like I looked like an alien for at least 2 months after the surgery and it was about 6 months before I thought I looked "normal." Having said this, let me explain that I would go through it all over again! The results are so amazing, words cannot express my delight and satisfaction.
My face went from looking tired, worn out and frumpy to what you see in my pic, which is a couple of months old. And remember, my face was done about 4 years ago. Talk about a fantastic investment! It's true that when you look good, you feel good. My goal wasn't to look 30 again, but to look healthy & vibrant for my age (54). I accomplished this thanks to an artistic, skillful and gifted board-certified plastic surgeon.
