I inherited my mother's neck. It started really showing in my 50's. By the time I reached my 60's it looked like my jaw had just melted into my neck. AND I had turkey neck, too, just like Mom! I had a serious illness 6 years ago and was in treatment for a year, so I didn't want to do anything requiring surgery AT ALL, but my neck distressed me so much that I decided to do something about it while I was still young enough to recover well. So, I did a lot of research & selected Southlake's Dr. Bogdan because I preferred a Tarrant County Plastic Surgeon (closer to home). I want to give Dr Bogdan full credit for his honesty: after examining my neck, he said that he did not have the necessary equipment to handle my case, so he referred me to Dr. Ben Tittle in Dallas, saying that Dr. Tittle would be able to help me. So, I researched Dr. Tittle and was REAL impressed with what I read about him. So, I made an appointment & Dr. Tittle examined my neck & took my case. He is a really nice man: he put me at ease and then explained my neck structure and what he would do to change my neck. So, I took the leap & scheduled the surgery. The night before my surgery, I developed a 102 fever & phoned Dr Tittle; who told me that he would cancel the surgery because it was against my best interest to go ahead (and NOT to feel bad about it) & to see my Primary Care Doctor (Dr Demopulos at Medical City - also an awesome Doctor, who has taken wonderful care of me for over 20 years) the next day. I did so, the problem was cured & 2 weeks later I had my surgery. Dr Tittle inspired such trust in me that I was calm - even excited! - about the surgery. And, just a few days after, I was AMAZED!! at the change. A couple of weeks later, it was even better!! Dr Tittle said that it would take about 6-12 months to see the final version, but I look SO GOOD now, at 3 months!! Everyone who knows me says that I look incredible - like I'm 20 years younger. And here's more: my illness left me with a severe cosmetic issue that I was resigned to having the rest of my life. But, I was so impressed with Dr Tittle's work and have so much confidence in him that I decided to ask him if he could do something about it. He examined me & said that he could and would! So, I am scheduled for a remedial surgery soon.
