TOO SEXY TO BE 62 ----- Major Complaint Was Skin Was Getting More and More Loose --- - Mount Pleasant, SC

Wow! I had no idea that I was going to experience...

Wow! I had no idea that I was going to experience as much swelling as I did post op... The machine that was used was Cynosure ---- found out today that the fractional part was set at what was an equivalent to 35% coverage of skin and the rest of the settings were set at levels used as if it were a fully ablative procedure... in other words, this was an aggressive treatment... thank you... would not have wanted it any other way... last week, which was the first days post op, were a challenge to say the least... I had to use lots and lots of Aquaphor... do water with vinegar soaks regularly.... I have been telling everyone that I am in cosmetic jail.... be housebound for 2 full weeks... but come Monday, July 27th, I will get to apply lots and lots of sunscreen along with makeup and let the world see the new me!

here I am 2 days shy of 2 weeks past surgery...

I still have a good bit more healing to do... but at least I am presentable to the world at large!


17 days exactly post surgery.... my cheeks are so very, very smooth.... I have been using a very heavy foundation, but today I went back to Hensel's office to consult with a nurse about the obagi skin product and I left with a much, much lighter foundation that will do the coverage over the redness just as well, if not better.. I also had to go and pick up a powder so that I can have a more matte finish.. I am looking forward to see how this comes together tomorrow morning when I apply the new skin care cosmetics... Also, have the obagi moisturizer which is very rich in shea butter... again, looking forward to see a more natural camouflage of the redness .... here is the next before and after picture...


still very red underneath the camoflaging make up.... but smooth is smooth!


another before and after... I am finally free of the chin strap that I had to wear for the lipo part of what I did on July 13th... so my face will start healing even better since there is no strap to cause the slightest irritation.... THANK YOU DR. HENSEL FOR THE TREATMENT THAT HAS RESTORED AND REGENERATED MY FACE!!


it is still work getting the make up on... hard won results... and very happy!


the picture of me with my son was taken the day before surgery... I have had a few people ask me to add some more "before" pictures...


yes I have eye makeup on, yes I have lip color on, but I have very little make up on my face... a wee bit of strategic foundation... and a wee bit if cheek color...
