My Neck/cheek Lift 12/9/15 - Rockville Centre, NY

Right now I am uncomfortable and in pain. I was...

Right now I am uncomfortable and in pain. I was on the table for about 7 hours. Dr. H seems very confident in himself. I was very frightened about being awake during my neck and cheek lift. But to my surprise once I lied down on the procedure table the doctor, his assistant and another doctor who was
there to observe I became relaxed. They do give you medication to relax and for the pain. But, you are
awake and pretty aware. Anyway, I came to Dr. H through my dearest friend. She used him and she
knows a few other people that did as well. She is very happy with her results and I believe I will be too.
Right now iI am only 3 days after my surgery. I am quite swollen and in pain. This gives - its hurts to be beautiful a whole new level. I underwent a tummy tuck years ago and that was the worst pain. I would give that one on a scale of 1 to 10 a 12. Not funny. My face work's level of pain goes from a 4 to a 10. I am hopeful that it will be worth it. I read an article that explained that it is like 3 separate canvases. Your neck - then one side of face - then the other. They all look different and keep changes as the healing process occurs. I also have black and blue markings on my neck and a little on my face. I was
advised to take Arnika which I did. It is supposed to cut down on bruising. Also Pineapple has.
something in it that cuts down inflammation. I followed it all. This is not a walk in the park. I hope my swelling, healing and final result is worth it. Lie I said its only been 3 days.

Had a Neck and Cheek Lift

OK, so now it was 6 months later and I had two areas right under my chin that looked like bumps. On
drs. advise I waited these months hoping they would go away from the healing process. Everyone thought I was crazy, but, after the 6 mos. I went back to Dr. H and he totally agreed with me. I was very
relieved. We scheduled a revision quickly. Dr. H could not have been any nicer. He totally cared and
spent a lot of time looking at my original pics and looking at my neck area from every angle. I went in for my revision neck lift about 2 weeks later. He did not charge me one cent. He felt responsible and wanted me to get the result I longed for and understood my frustration.

He went in thru the same line under my chin as originally used. He cleaned out fat deposits and tightened my neck muscle. I was sent home with a band to wear around my neck at home and when
going to bed. When I returned a week later there was what appeared to be swelling mostly on one
side of my neck. Turned out to be fluid that he carefully drained. Had to go back about a week later to have it drained again. Through it all Rebecca ( Dr. H's secretary) helped and answered all my questions and helped make my appointments at my convenience. She is an excellent support system and always
returns calls promptly and if she does not know the answer to a question she will immediately go ask the doctor and return to your call. You are never left on hold and forgotten about. At these follow up
appointments Dr. H is extremely caring, and does his utmost to show his concern for you and your end result. My neck revision was done on 6/24/16. It is now almost two weeks later and I can see that my bumps are gone. Other than the swelling and draining of fluid - it looks good. Of course, I am experiencing discomfort. I did have a surgical procedure repeated on this fragile area. Dr. H told me that he is always there for me and not to hesitate to call or come back to see him anytime. His warmth
and friendliness put me at total ease. There is no charge for follow up appointments at any time - ever. He truly cares. He phoned me a couple of times that first week to see how I was feeling. He showed great concern. He called himself on his own time.

If anyone considering using this doctor or has questions about his staff or anything at all - please feel free to call me

I am in no way related to Dr. H or any of his staff. I was recommended to them by a very dear close
friend that has used him and she know others that have used his services. I have heard and seen
nothing but good from his doctor. My name is Janet - and I welcome your call with any question at all.

Thank you to Dr. H for your wonderful manner- your friendly personality - your caring and most of
all your experienced hands

Please forgive me for referring to you as Dr. H - you have a hard to remember how to spell last name.

P.S - my procedures were done at his office while I was medicated to relax and given numbing shots
so I would not feel the pain. This saves money and is medically safer for you - the patient. I do
have pics that I would be happy to text anyone.

Friendly. nice guy. He makes you feel like he is your friend. I think he takes his time and is good at what he does. He returns phone calls quickly . He ordered more meds as I requested. His staff is friendly and helpful. When I went for the initial appointment it was just a consult. It was the confidence and ease in him that put me over the edge and I scheduled my face/neck lift right then. I can't wait till I am all healed and see how a new younger me looks like.
