66 Yr Old Great Grandmother of 5 So Goodby Wrinkled Neck and Jowls!!! - Atlanta

I woke up one day a couple of years and wondered...

I woke up one day a couple of years and wondered what happen to that youthful women that use to look back at me in the mirror, when did the neck start to wrinkle and when did my jowls develop a pooch on the side of my face or should I say a jowl, time to make this happen! March 17th I am so ready. After meeting with Dr. Harley I knew the Biltmore Lift was for me, He did not try to upsell me to try to talk me into procedures I did not need, he let me make my decision on if I want my eyes done or not, which I am not going to do. His office is quaint and very clean and furnish beautifully, my husband could not believe it. He spent about 20 minutes with me and came right to the point he specializes in just the neck and lower face and eyes which makes him an expert which I really like. Juanita works there and is so personable. It is so refreshing to go to a doctor who talks with you and not at you and believe I interviewed a lot of them here in Atlanta. Will post pictures soon of what I look like now.

My first photo

This is what this wrinkle neck looks like now in 6 weeks this should be a lot firmer. I know Dr. Harley has his work caught out for him. I tried to take a side view in 22nd picture of my jowls

Full face

Still thinking about my eyes

full face before surgery

I am not a selfie expert but I am sure I will learn

More pictures see why U need this

I can't wait to get this neck done I try not to look at it everyday I have to keep busy so what am I doing taking pictures at work not good right

Wondering about my eyes

I am sitting her this evening reading all the great reviews on this site and looking at my horrible pictures and wondering do I get my eyes done???? Need your help ladies what do you think

Ok now I am impressed

I left a message for Dr. Harley today and ask Juanita to ask him to call me after 3pm today, sure enough he called me from his car and we had a great conversation about doing my lower eyes which I am going to do because I have full trust in his expertise. But Ladies what PS nowdays go out of their way to call a patient on their way from their cell phone. I am so glad I found Dr. Harley on this website so if you have not been happy with doctors you have interviewed for your procedure you need to contact Dr. Harley.

24 more days to go

Countdown to march 17

After 6 long weeks of waiting and then hoping I did not get cancelled my husband and I will be finally leaving Atlanta in a hour or so, I try not to think about tomorrow or else I will be nervous not sure how good I will sleep this evening but I am sure I will get enough sleep in the next couple of days to catch up, I will keep you all posted if I can get my husband to take pictures the first day he is really not into that but he is a great support mechanism for me. My daughter called me yesterday and said I still have time to back out and of course my son still sees me as I always was him mom who he loves.

Almost 7 weeks pos op

Hi my girls well it will be 7 weeks this week since my wonderful doctor Harley shaved years off of my face I will be 67 in 2 weeks and this is the best decision I have ever made just for me U had a lower face and neck lift nothing on my eyes he was so honest and told me I didn't need them done. After the 4th week my discoloration on my lower face seen to take a long time to heal in my case my lines were so deep under my cheeks he had to put a syrnge and a half of juverderm in which I know caused the discoloration lines I am still somewhat right in front of my ears and under my chin I never had any pain with this procedure at all when I go back to see him on June 8 I will have some noted for my crows feet. Ladies do not hesitate to do this for yourself and please see 1st Harley u will not be disappointed

6 month update

I am about to pass my 6 months so I thought I better post some updated pictures from my results of my lower face lift and neck lift by Dr Harley U cannot thank him enough for his artistic skills please ladies make sure u do ur research before letting anyone do work on you I am so glad I found Dr Harley
As of now I still have a small amount of tightness under my chin and tiny bit of discoloration which fades day by day I have feeling in the side of my face now I do get tight once in awhile but since I live in the South where temps have been in the high 90's expect that my scar has almost disappeared in front of my ears and under my chin. I did have filler put in as I can see from my before pictures I had deep crevices in the side of my face U do want to get a microdermision on my face but I feel my skin is not quite ready for it at my 7th month I will do it
I wanted to get these pictures up so I could see the results I know that was important for me to see the 6 month and 1 yr results and even after that Good Luck to all of u be sure to use Dr H
Asheville Facial Plastic Surgeon

I had the pleasure of meeting with Dr.Harley of Ashville,NC today to schedule my neck and lower face lift. Thanks to all the lovely women who posted on this site, I already knew what he was going to do before he said it. He did not try to upsell me which was very important to me as I have had other meetings with other doctors who tried to do this with me. His wonderful staff was great so I an really looking forward to this on March 17
