There'a few thingsI want to say here. I have as of yet had any experience with lifestlyes, however I have had a complete face lift with implants, the whole ball of wax. I did all my homeworked and picked one of the so called "Best of the Best" In Sacramento,
I am not afearid to mention his nam as Anything I say or write is the truth. His namei DR K and is in Sacramnto california.
Mu surgery cost a grand total of 14 thouand +. He scewed up on one of the cheek implants and it started worng it's way out through my face. I was in Mexico and mind you it was around 4 monthsafter the surgery. A Mexican doctor told me to get back to the states ASAP and get it out of my face.
I did but I was charged for te remova and left with a nice big indentation on on side of my face and I had to pay for the emoval.
To top it off The Nice Doctor tol me after post-op that I looked like person who had aid's.
I have since called his office re replacing th implant as it drives m nuys emotioally and physically. He never takes the call only the rcetionest. I have been contiouly referred to another Doc to have Sculptura injections, The latest I was told by her, that due to scar tissue I couldn't have the implant replaced. WRONG!
I have been to three other surgeons who have all said it could be replaced no problem.BUT I DON'T NEED IT MY CHEEK BONES ARE VERY STRONG and SHOULD HAVE NOT HAD IMPLANTS TO BEGIN WITH but do the hollowness from the removal of the bad one I nedd to either remoe th other implabt and have a central face lift or just leave it in as it is so subtle, the lift would prettey much put it all back to where is should be.
When I asked one doctor why did he put them in, the reply was "MONEY."When I told one doctor I Had to pay him to remove the bad implant he just shook his head,
I was consious during the facelift and I will never forget when he was pounding away at my left cheek hearing him say "God I am so tired." I mumbled not now.
I had numbness for a longtime, no problem, that is normal after the surgery. No pain while healing. Swelling and bruising yes but expected.
Have I continued to age? Of course, a face lift doesn't stop the process. Will you feel better afterwards? If it's done right you'll feel like a million dollars if not, you'll hate yoursef for being so stupid forever. If you not among the rich and famous, with an unlimited bank account, you can't aford a mistake from doctor with poor ethics. YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN!
What I am trying to say that no matter what you have done there are risk. The difference froma good doctor and a bad one is a good one will do his best to mak the scew up better and not charge you. They won't make hurtfull statements.
Also no mater what you sigh you have the right to sue. I didn't know this until it was to late. I d I had I would have settled this in a court room in a New York minute.
I trusted this doctor he had everything in order and he also prides himself as being an advocate against domestic violence against women. I always remember seeing that plaue on his wall as I walked aout after he had verbally ripped my soul out after telling me I looked like I had Aids. Words never heal bruises do.
I am looking at 6000 more dollars to have his screw up fixed,Goes he care? Of course not.
No matter how tell you do your home work there are risk. I quarantee you tho if anything sounds to good to be true it's usually false.
Actually I am, looking at having the wotk done in Mexico for a fraction of the cost here from a doctor I have known and trust for sometime now. She has been doing my fillers for a very long time. Trying to cover up the Expensive Americans doctors screw-up at a fraction of the cost for fillers here. My Botox injections cost so little here it would blow you awy at just how much the states are really ripping us off.
However where ever you go make damm sure you know al about whom you are dealing with before you hav anything done. I thought I had all bases covered, but evedently I
didn't dig deep if so wouldn't be here warning all of you. BECAREFUL!!!!!!
