Mini Face/neck Lift with Fat Transfer to Temples..... - Saint Louis, MO

After several years of using Botox and various...

After several years of using Botox and various facial fillers, I decided to look into the prospect of having a facelift and have been researching plastic surgeons in the St. Louis area. Dr. Mark Boschert at Renaissance Plastic Surgery in St. Peter’s, Missouri came highly recommended. After talking to several practices I have decided that I trust Dr. Boschert with my mini facelift/necklift and fat transfer to my temples. He is exceptionally easy to talk to - clearly and completely answers all questions that I have had. His staff is caring and welcoming each time I have been in the office. I will have my pre op appointment at the end of October with surgery scheduled for the middle of November. I will keep you up to date!

Preparing for my procedure....

In preparation for my procedure and included in the price of the surgery, Renaissance schedules a microdermabrasion treatment and the use of ZO Skin Health/Obagi products including Retin a. They want to prepare your skin and make sure it is in great condition prior to the surgery. I have been using them for a week now - although my skin is getting a bit flaky from the Retin a - and I love them. A sunscreen is included - which I have always neglected to put on daily. I will also have an additional microdermabrasion treatment six weeks after my surgery and the day after my surgery I will have an Obagi Blue Peel.

Gathering my supplies that I will need post op....

I have been reading and reading about what I need to have post op - especially those foods to avoid and those to eat to help with bruising and swelling. Any good advice out there about things I should really make sure to have? And what about a wedge pillow? Do I need one? Where is the best place to purchase? Thanks for your advice!

Dr. Boschert is very knowledgeable about the procedure - he took time in two consultation sessions to explain and answer all of my questions.
