Finally Scheduled Consults for my Droopy Uppers, Puffy Lowers and Ptosis Repair - Tucson, AZ

I wanted to share my consultation experiences as I begin this journey. I need "total" facial rejuvenation, however my eyes bother me most, but need more than just cosmetic work. I also have functional issues that involve work that many facial plastic surgeons don't usually do so likely need... READ MORE

Been Wanting to Try This for a While, Glad I Finally Did! - Tucson, AZ

Got a great deal on three treatments of the Dermapen by the person who did my botox and filler (only done that once), so I thought why not? Dermapen is a type of microneedling device, but not a roller. I heard about skin needling (Collagen Induction Therapy - CIT) years ago and the science... READ MORE

Questions from StillSouthern

What would be appropriate for these aging baggy eyelids? The right eye is usually lower than the left. (Photo)

60 years old, have thought about eyelid surgery for about 15 years. This pic doesn't show it, but the right eye is usually lower than the left, maybe ptosis? Recently had Botox... READ MORE

Is eyelid ptosis a weak muscle problem and can that muscle be strengthened with exercise?

My understanding of ptosis is that the problem is lax muscle(s) and the correction is a tightening of that muscle, is that correct? I know there are eyelid and face exercises... READ MORE

Is there a downside to having eyes done first and facelift at a later date?

I originally planned for upper and lower bleph with ptosis repair, and maybe lipo, etc under chin area; probably fat transfer too, but seems a facelift is automatically rec'd... READ MORE

Are these appropriate credentials for a doctor for upper lower bleph with ptosis? Other face work? I can find no adverse info.

Considering a consult for eye work (qualified for facelift also?) with this doctor. The following is listed on their website (not "exactly" the ones seen on here) - American... READ MORE

How long does it take to heal from ptosis surgery? What are complications? (photos)

I have read where since it involves layers that it could take many months for the eyes to take their final shape? What are potential problems? I know it will vary, looking for... READ MORE

Can a Facelift correct this droopy mouth and marionette lines? I have lots of sag and volume loss. (photo)

Is long lasting correction possible? There are so many options (opinions?), I will only be able to do this once, so I'm looking for the best information to get the best outcome... READ MORE

Does firm thick skin not get as dramatic improvement from facelift as thin damaged skin would??

I have well cared for, sun protected, non smoking skin. I mentioned that while I don't want to look like someone else, dramatic improvement would be good. The doctor said I... READ MORE

Is there an ideal BMI for Brazilian Butt Lift?

I think I've read less than 30? Does this vary depending on how your weight is distributed? For instance, My BMI is almost 31 right now (5'6", 190), but I'm just big around my... READ MORE

I posted this in the doctor Q&A but got no replies... I'm sure I'm not the only one who has read the horror stories here, and it makes you realize how important choosing... READ MORE

He seems like a very good doctor. READ COMMENT

I have lost less than 10 lbs and see a noticable improvement in my chin/neck...pre surgery. READ COMMENT

Sharing, you have nerve damage in your butt area now? Do you know how much was removed? My doctor said very little fat would be removed (from abdomen). I've seen pics of her fat grafting sites and they are basically invisible..? And... READ COMMENT

Sounds like an excellent plan ;) Your incision is healing up nicely. Sorry you're not sleeping real well, maybe tylenol and chamomile tea? (has worked for me in the past) Thanks for the updates, I really enjoy them :) READ COMMENT

Look at those curves! You look great! READ COMMENT
