5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Fantastic! - Santa Barbara, CA

The only small complaint I have is the recommendations for icing the face. One nurse said to ice for 4 days after surgery; another said to ice for 10 days after surgery. One nurse said not to eat solid foods for 10 days; another said no solid foods for a week. The doctor said I would know when to eat more chewy foods and I'm in agreement there. I'm now on day 4 and not quite ready to eat chicken. Still on smoothies etc. Also recommend to limit your salt intake. Soups are nice but loaded with sodium unless you make your own. I felt this surgery was quite simple with some discomforts. You have to sleep on your back for a week or so. I heard it helps reduce wrinkles so I may try to make this a habit. Dr. Soares is a very kind doctor who took ample time to explain. He is down to earth and even gave me his cell number in case I needed it. This has been a wonderful experience for me and I'm so grateful I found the right doctor to do the procedure. Thanks Doctor Soares and thank you Kristin, Barbara, Dawn and Angela and Frank! You're a great team!!
