Neck Lift and Lower Facelift - Beverly Hills, CA
I had a turkey neck and beginning jowls forming. ...
Then i started to look better
A month later
Dr Torkian is an intelligent, tasteful practitioner who respected my wishes and listened to me as we discussed the kind of outcome I wanted. In Beverly Hills it seems to me that women wear their facelifts - or any of their facial work as a badge of honor- it's simply a different aesthetic from my own. For me, it was important that I look as if I had had not a single thing done to me. I wanted to look elegant and utterly like myself, just without the horrible turkey neck I was developing. He did not suggest a bunch of extra procedures, and in fact was very specific about what he would do in my specific lift. He explained that certain aspects of the procedure (like the sewing together of the platysma muscle, something I assumed he would do) were not necessary, but other things, like a touch of lipo under the chin, were. He did both neck and lower face, smoothing out the slight jowls that were forming and ensuring that there was a natural look to the results. We discussed stitch placement, the pros and cons of where the incisions might go - everything important. I blew up like a balloon right after surgery, but his confidence in the success of this outcome kept me soothed and indeed at the end of two weeks I was looking pretty good. It has now been almost a month and I am pretty thrilled. I look about 10 years younger and there is no sign of surgery!!!!!! And by the way, the day of my surgery, he texted me his cell number and told me to call if I had ANY issues. I did not. He saw me two days later and again 10 days after that. My surgery was utterly issue-free. He did a wonderful job. He only does faces by the way, and I think that is incredibly important. Right before I left town, he did some botox on me that I had requested and then told me it was on the house. He's a great guy! Everyone who works at the Laskey clinic - everyone I dealt with in his office was lovely, helpful and genuinely happy for me.
