Shape over Size! Anchor lift with Implant downsize.

My surgery is scheduled for Aug 25, 2016. The reason I'm traveling is because I want the best... READ MORE

Good for some issues - Orlando, FL

Completed my first of 4 treatments about 11 days ago on Sept 16. My skin does feels tighter and softer. My husband and one close friend notice a difference after only one treatment. It's a slight difference, but given I've only had one treatment so far, I'm very pleased. I look forward to the next 3 treatments and will post my results here. Thought I come back and do an update. ... READ MORE

Hi, I agree most of your scars look really good and they should continue to fade. Since you're having a revision next week have you considered asking a PS to revise the darker vertical incision? As you know I just had a revision. ... READ COMMENT
