Don't freak out. - Addicted - Seattle, WA

Don't freak out.  The $4500 wasn't one treament.  At first we used Perlane, but it kinda hurt whenever there was pressure on it, and I can't imagine enjoying kissing with that in there.  The last time, I used Restylane.  Much better. The doctor is one of the most caring, nurturing, and accommodating people I've ever known.  She really cares if you're happy with the... READ MORE

The Nymph Returns!

After getting lipo (being 20 lb overweight), I was unhappy with the results -- way too much fat left.  I already knew I'd probably need a tummy tuck (TT) after it, since I was 65, & told the lipo guy that, but he still didn't take enough fat off.  The lipo guy is NOT the same as the TT guy. I found a great plastic surgeon in Federal Way WA.  He shaped me really nicely,... READ MORE

I Love It, I Love It, I Love It!

My lips were flat & looked severe and, from the side, masculine. I saw Dr. Jennifer Henderson in the Larrabee Ctr in Seattle, and asked her to make a new upper lip line about 3 mm (in the ctr, and tapering off) above my real lip line. I had had permanent lip color tattooed in, but you could still see where my real lip began. She did a wonderful job & fluffed up both my upper & lower lip. ... READ MORE

Paid $13,500 for $6000 Worth of Work

This surgeon (in Issaquah) was supposed to be one of the best in Seattle. The prep was annoying: A couple of hours before the surgery, I had to smear lidocaine cream all over my body from groin to just below the breasts, the sides of my hips, my upper sides, and around back including tops of hips & my back up to shoulder blades, then wrap myself in Saran wrap. Yecchhh! Since then... READ MORE

2 1/2 Face Lifts Later ...

I had my first face lift with eyelids & neck in 1990 when I was 48. The doctor is also an artist, and he made my eyes almond-shaped. Really beautiful. I was SO happy with that face lift. I've never regretted it. Also, it was done in office, in a chair. They gave me some valium or something in an IV, and I was in & out of consciousness, but I remember talking to them. This was a 3/4 face... READ MORE

Painful & Completely Useless

The surgeon's brochure said the results would be permanent. AFTER the procedure, he said I'd probably need a "booster" in 6 months. I said the brochure said it was permanent and so did he. He denied it. I showed him the brochure. He said "Oh. Well, I didn't write that, the company did. They probably meant that it's permanent for as long as it lasts." Sounds like the... READ MORE

He's Dr. Richard Clark. Since his 2 face lifts, I've had a 3rd by a doc in Seattle, which was a butcher job. Dr. Clark's work is careful and he's an artist. Also, both my face lifts by Clark were done with twilight sedation, wheras... READ COMMENT

I was going to have fat transfer done, but I had some fat tranferred to the crease between my lower lip (including the regular skin) at the place where the chin begins to stick out. It was great, because that crease is so deep on... READ COMMENT

Awalk -- have you had fat transfer to your lips? I'd like to know how that turned out. Thanks. READ COMMENT

I wrote an answer to this question last week. Did it not post? READ COMMENT

I've called 4 or 5 places to get prices on permanent lip color and gotten prices from $300 to $800. I can't wrap my mind around this. READ COMMENT
