55 Years Old - Troy, MI

My motivation was simple, i wanted to look as young in the mirror as i feel i am on the inside. I am married and mother of two children. I had the neck firming procedure done 6 months ago. I purposely waited to submit a review to make sure i was happy after the healing and swelling was compete. Dr. Kelly did my procedure and i really liked him. I did not feel pressured to commit, and he was very patient and answered all my questions. I will say after all the swelling goes away and this does take weeks my jawline probably doesn't look quite as tight, but i still love how i look. I have no more gowles and no turkey neck. As for all of the negative reviews about pain i will say the first 3 or 4 days are no picnic but take your pain meds and rest, i did not find it unbearable. I went back to work on the 8th day, i also included the PRP to my procedure and had no bruising on my face whatsoever. I am not at all sorry, im actually so glad i did this, i continue to be so happy with how i look. No one believes i am as old as i am! I love the change Dr. Kelly gave me and the staff at the Troy location were very nice.

Thank you for sharing your experience on RealSelf! I removed the incorrect Dr. Kelly from your review (my apologies), but it doesn't appear that your Dr. Kelly is on the site, so I can't link to him. Folks searching for him should be able to find this review, though. Could you feel anything during your surgery?

I had my life style procedure done 6 months ago. I purposely waited because i wanted to make sure I would be happy with it after the healing was complete. Dr. Kelly did my procedure, he was very patient and answered all of my questions, he has a great bedside manner and i never felt pressured in any way to go through with my procedure. I do love the results, in the beginning your neck feels very tight but it is not in anyway unbearable. I did not have any infections or negative side effects. I will say after all the swelling goes away and this does take weeks my jawline does not look as firm as it did at the 6week checkup but i am still very happy, there is a part of me that worries what it will look like a year out, i am hoping it doesn't change any more than it has. I can tell you i have no more gowles, no more turkey neck and virtually no scares around my ears or chin. I would definitely recommend Dr. Kelly and the Troy office for anyone wanting to look younger and feel better when they look in the mirror. As for what i have read in reviews about the excruciating pain, the first 3 to 4 days are no picnic but again not unbearable, just take your pain meds and rest. I went back to work 8 days later, i included the PRP with my procedure and had no bruising whatsoever on my face. Im very happy and honestly love the change Dr. Kelly gave me. From my experience i will tell you i believe you will be very happy you took the leap!
