Just after surgery
My jpg pics won't load.
Help! Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?
Saturday morning 2/21/15
Still very early on.
Just wanted to say that all this swelling that I have right now and the Juvederm that I had injected into nasolabial folds, and marionette lines really make it look as though these areas are really plumped out and smooth.. It will take about 3 months to see the true result. But, I know that Dr Harley did a very good job.
He and staff are just outstanding in so many ways. They are well qualified, caring and available to each of their patients. I urge anyone who may be considering a procedure to please at the very least consider a consult with Dr Harley.
Dr Harley told me that he removed a large amount of fat under my chin. No more turkey neck. Dr Harley doesn't use Lipo on the neck to prevent lumps and bumps.
I'm just so pleased even though I still have a lot of healing to do.
For those who may be wondering about local sedation, I'm telling you the honest truth. When I arrived, after signing consents and addressing any questions I may have had, Dr Harley administered my oral medication in another 10-15 minutes Kelly and Dr Harley came and got me and assisted me to the surgical suit. Immediately both Kelly and Dr Harley started talking to me to relax me and Dr Harley was placing sterile drapes over me. I don't remember what we were talking about. I do remember Dr Harley saying I may feel a little pinch but I didn't feel anything and don't remember anything until Dr Harley woke me up.. I didn't feel anything, I didn't smell anything, I didn't know anything at all!
It was just so easy. The next day when I returned to have the drain removed there was no pain at all.. Now I have NO TOLERANCE FOR PAIN! I'm just telling you this is the way to go for the procedures that I had!
I had made a promise that I would let everyone know the absolute truth about everything so I felt obligated to write this note. Still no real pain just soreness.
I appreciate each and every one of you and consider you friends. Please stay in touch. Ask any questions you would like to I will answer them truthfully.

BTW, My Children don't know I had this Surgery!!!!!
Want that be a HOOT!!!
I'm back from visiting Family and my Best Friend!
After spending 4-5 days with her we went on to visit oldest Son and family.
When he saw me he said "Mom you look so good, you look so much healthier, you look better than you have in years" (I had some very major surgery in 2009, in fact I ended up having 5 surgeries, nothing to do with PS). He said you look better than you have since having all that surgery. You look like you've finally gotten over all of that". Your so pretty again, like my Mom! I'm so glad your finally better! WOW! I couldn't have ask for more than that. I didn't have the heart to tell him that it was Dr Harley that made his Mom look like his Mom again! My older grandchildren echoed his words as well! They made me feel really good.
Yes, I would do it again in a minute! Yes, it was worth every penny! Yes, Dr David Harley is a miracle worker!
I will be posting my official Before and After pictures sometime after the 29th of APRIL. Please stay in touch and I' ll be glad to answer any questions.
Love you my friends, I feel as if you have gone through this wonderful transformation with me. Thanks for your support!
Doing fine and very happy with Dr Harley"s wonderful work!
I had my initial consultation with Dr Harley today. I found him to be warm, friendly, calming and caring. I already knew from all my research and all of the reviews on this site that Dr Harley is extremely well qualified. He was very reassuring and answered all of my questions and my husbands questions as well. I will be having "The Biltmore Lift", upper eye lid surgery, Lip Augmentation, and some injectables! WOW! I've gotta be a real mess to need all this! My sweetheart of a husband is so supportive and encouraging. He says "I'm beautiful to him just as I am" (obligatory statement, I'm sure) but, I should do what makes me feel better about myself. So, after meeting Dr Harley and Juanita we decided to go ahead and schedule my procedures for February 19, 2015. I'm so excited! One month from today! The time can't pass quickly enough for me!
