66 Years Old Wanting to Match Outside Appearance with Inside - Gulf Shores, AL

Before I had surgery with Dr. Velargo, I was getting more and more depressed, and I did not want to leave home. I could easily sleep 10 hours a day, and I was close to the point of just not wanting to be here anymore. I'm 66 years old and healthy, but I looked old! So, I went to see Dr. Velargo, who is a very nice fellow. He took about 15 years off my face. He performed a facelift, neck lift, and upper and lower eyelid surgery. The recovery was a pretty easy process except for the head wrap I had to wear nightly for a few weeks afterwards. It was only uncomfortable as my beard started growing back. I grew my beard out for the first few weeks to help cover up the surgery. At my one month follow up I shaved and took pictures. The process was seamless with Dr. Velargo and the staff. I had no complications and he said I healed normally.

Dr. Velargo changed my life! Now I feel great, I'm happy, I'm not depressed, I don't want to stay home anymore, I sleep six or seven hours per night, and I am ready to go! It is hard for me to put into words the difference that this made in my life! I would like to say to anyone that is feeling the way I felt, that you are only here once, so if you don't think what you see in the mirror is who you really are on the inside, then see Dr. Velargo
