In April of this year, I had a lower face and neck lift, as well as a C02 laser on my face performed by Dr. Torgerson. Making the decision to go ahead with surgery took several months, but ultimately it was Dr. Torgerson's relaxed and clearly knowledgeable manner that gave me the confidence to do so. He had shown me results from previous clients - which were great; natural and really improved.
I followed pre-surgery instructions to the letter to help insure the best possible outcome. Dr. Torgerson explained both the benefits and potential complications to me so I had a good understanding of the benefit and risk. Post surgery my face was really swollen, as i also had a C02 laser, but I actually felt pretty good, and had a minimal amount of pain! The swelling and bruising took several days to get to a place where I started to look like 'me' again and felt comfortable venturing out of the house for a walk, but I could start to see that the results were terrific - my neck was just lovely, my skin was glowing and I could see with time my jawline and lower face were going to be great. All through the 10 days I was off work I took supreme care, and followed post-surgery guidelines strictly. Sleeping at a 45 degree angle, to help reduce swelling was hard to get used to, but I learned how to prop myself up comfortably. Follow up visits to have sutures removed, and regular check ins included feedback and encouragement, and reassurance that what I was experiencing was normal. It was still a shock to see the incisions post surgery and even now, 7 weeks later I realize that they will take a year to truly fade. Am I glad I did it and that Dr. Torgerson was my surgeon? ABSOLUTELY. I LOVE my results and have received great feedback from my husband and friends. Dr. Torgerson was simply amazing - a genuinely talented and caring individual.. His staff is great too - from Breann at the front desk to Michelle, the surgical nurse. I feel confident recommending Dr. Torgerson
