Full Face and Neck 3 Months Ago and On the Fence? - Tustin, CA

OK, since I didn't want to take narcotics, I...

OK, since I didn't want to take narcotics, I thought I could get by with just Ibuprofen for this procedure. I mean, how bad could it be, right?

WRONG! It hurt like hell. However, Dr. Plechas was supercool, patient, and spent a lot of time on me! He clearly knows what he is doing.

Dr. said it could take up to six months to see complete results, so I will try to be patient. I do see a little improvement in my undereye area and lids - nothing drastic, but nice.

I am REALLY hoping hoping hoping to see a little tightening in my jowl-area (it is currently not bad, but it bugs me).

For me, 2.8K is a LOT of do-re-mi for me to spend on anything, so I want to be SATISFIED. I will not hesitate to contact Dr. P. for a jowl touch-up (hopefully gratis, if I am not pleased with final results).

Will keep y'all posted!

Hi, so far no change since posting. Pretty disappointed because it has been nearly 4 months and I see nothing by way of tightening in the jaw/jowl area. TBD!

Oh, that's not good. Although most community members mention it takes 3 months to see full results some mention it can take up to six, as you said TBD. Please keep us updated. 




Hi capted, 

Based on the community it seems promising that you are seeing results already. I'm glad your doctor told you it would be a bit before you saw immediate results. I'm know it's only been just short of a month, but how's everything going? 




It's been 5+months since full face/neck and I...

It's been 5+months since full face/neck and I gotta say: I am bummed. A lotta money for squat. Dr. spent so much time with me, we were both enthusiastic about seeing results.

I need to see what others think about my contacting Dr. and requesting that he revisit at least my jowls (gratis, I hope).

Any advice/opinions?
Capted did you do pics before and after? I wonder if you could do photoshop like another woman (Tellyjan) did on this site to see if there is a difference but you don't see it?

I will rate him excellent once I am pleased with my results! :)
