Dr. S has a very helpful staff who also go out of their way to answer all your questions and concerns. I was even given the Dr's personal cell number if I had any further questions.
On the day of my surgery I was taken early, and met with the very friendly anesthesiologist beforehand. She also was very kind, and answered all of my questions. I felt safe and secure in the hands of Dr. S and his whole medical team that day.
The procedure went perfectly, I woke up feeling a bit groggy, but had barely any pain, and didn't feel sick, which was one of my main concerns with anesthesia. Everything went smoothly.
I was VERY swollen and a bit sore for the first 5 days. I would compare it to having your wisdom teeth removed. Nothing I couldn't handle though. I was prescribed pain meds, but only needed them the first few days, and then switched to extra strength tylenol.
By day 6 I could already tell I was going to LOVE my new high cheeks! He gave me the size that I asked for (XL) and placed them exactly where I wanted them. The swelling in my lower face was probably the worst part, but right now I am at day 12, and it has completely gone down and is back to normal. I still have a slight bruise and some yellowing of the skin under my right eye, but nothing that can't be covered with makeup.
I feel badly that so many people have had such negative experiences with cheek implants on this website. It really did scare me at first, but I am SO glad I went through with it.
More updates soon!
