Age 61 - Very Happy with Advanced Lift and Upper-eyelid-lift RESULTS NATURAL LOOKING - Cincinnati, OH

At age 61 I wanted a refreshed and natural looking results. I meet with several surgeons in the Cincinnati area and did much online research and choose Dr. Mendelsohn. I had the Advanced Lift and ablepharoplasty-upper-eyelid-lift. I was a bit nervous because of the horror stories I came across during my research, and the fact that I would be awake during the procedure.

I had a consult with Mark and Dr. Mendelsohn and felt very comfortable with the procedure and felt they set realistic expectations. Dr. Mendelsohn called me the night before my procedure and answered all my questions and he made me feel extremely comfortable. On the day of my procedure, I was extremely nervous…after all I was getting work done on MY FACE! I kept thinking, “what if he takes off too much skin and my eyes won’t close”, etc. My mind was working overtime! My thoughts were racing, that I was thinking I couldn’t believe I was have this done awake. I have issues going to the dentist, much less having this type of procedure awake. But I was greeted by my nurse at the surgery center, she gave me a cocktail of meds which calmed my nerves. We talked about the whole process from beginning to end and we discussed all of the medications I needed to take and proper care after my surgery. She took such good care of me I'm so great full she was my nurse. I can tell you she loves what she does and she's absolutely excellent at it.

About an hour and half later it was done, and my husband was called back to help me to the car. I was ecstatic that it was over, and that I was awake most of the time. I’m not much for taking pain medication, but did take it the first 2 days. I went for a follow-up the next morning (all was good), and then had my stitches removed the next week.

The healing process was not bad, discomfort yes but not painful like I had expected. I expected worse but in reality the swelling wasn’t too bad and bruising was minimal. I followed directions to detail and was able to go out in public within 5-7 days.

Bottom line, I’m very happy with my results and would highly recommend Dr. Mendelsohn.
