Fat Transfer to Top and Bottom of Feet - New York, NY

I received fat transfer to my feet not for cosmetic purposes but because I had destroyed the fat in my feet with multiple steroid injections I received for Morton's Neuroma. MN is an inflammation of the nerve between the toes which often occurs to women over 40 who run or wear high heels.... READ MORE

After Two Weeks, Noticeable Difference - Followed by No Difference Dubai, AE

I was extremely skeptical about Thermage CPT, assumed I would not get any visible result and was going to settle for a result of buying myself another year of not aging as much. In part, I believed this would be the outcome because I was doing it in Dubai where the doctor was not going to use... READ MORE


I am 53. Normal weight (130 at 5'6") Problem areas: My jaw line has gone soft with age and my brows have dropped to the point where I look grim or stern when my face is relaxed and not animated. I don't want to get a brow lift because I fear that the subtle amount that I want lifted would wind... READ MORE

Fat Transfer to Lower Lip, Philtrum, Side of Nose, and Mental Crease - New York, NY

I have a very long upper lip. Although I'd like to get an upper and corner lip lift, I wasn't ready to shell out the 25K that one famous doctor wanted to do the 3 procedures he recommended I need. (Corner, upper lip lift and V-Y Plasty on lower lip.) I decided to try a preliminary step of... READ MORE

Lip Lift. Washington, DC

I have a 22mm upper lip which is not only aging, but is not attractive. I have had 4 consults. 1) Dr Haworth 2) Dr Rodriguez 3) Dr Stephen Baker and a 4th who would not do it. I felt the most comfortable with Dr Baker. The fact that he does a lot of reconstructive surgery around the mouth, is... READ MORE

Questions from Becoming Stronger

How could a doctor make my face more proportional and, if possible, attractive? (photos)

I have already seen multiple top revision rhinoplasty surgeons who said that my dream of having a nose that was not so short and over-rotated is not possible. So any thoughts... READ MORE

Can a bullhorn lip lift be executed successfully when the patient has a shortened, over rotated nose? (Photo)

I have a shortened, upturned nose, thanks to 2 rhinoplasties. (Note: I had 2 consultations with revision rhinoplasty specialists who said the tip could not be de-rotated.)... READ MORE

I am in DC. Haworth's prices are more than I'd like to spend so I am trying to determine if a corner lip lift is truly a procedure that requires lots of experience and a particular set of unique skills, or if the procedure is pretty... READ COMMENT

I did not. I am going to wait until I have my final result to decide if I leave my lips alone, have a second lip lift at some point, and or get a corner lip lift. READ COMMENT

I am seeing Baker tomorrow to take another look at my result and to look at a pimple I have near the nostril base and advise what I need to do about it. I may bring up the corner lip lift. But at this point I am not sure Baker is the... READ COMMENT

Sure. It's basically one bump on me. I have it covered with makeup. Tomorrow I am going for a post op with Baker and will ask him if this is a pimple or something else. I will post photo tonight. READ COMMENT

Understandable that you are frustrated. I was told that the first 6 months are about healing and the second 6 months are about the scar becoming less visible. It can be hard to have patience when the surgery was done on the front of... READ COMMENT
