30 Year Old, Eyebrow Tattoo Permanent Makeup

My brows have always been "off" and not quite symmetrical. I have patches where hair hasn't grown in and it's always bothered me. So, I've been researching permanent eyebrow tattooing and have been stalking Heidi Carney's work for about 2 years. Then I realized she does her work at Dr. Connors office, where I've had work done in the past and knew she'd be the best person to do this. She uses... READ MORE

30 Year Old Restalyne Under Eye Circles and Bags - Atlanta, GA

The past year, I've aged a lot. Mostly under my eyes. After a bad breakup & turning 30, I just looked tired and sad all the time. I've been nervous to get injectables under my eyes, but after extensive research I decided to go back to Dr. John Connors office to have the procedure done. Maggie, the Nurse practitioner, did the procedure. And she did an excellent job explaining the options,... READ MORE

30 Year Old Juvederm 1/2 Syringe Lip Injection. Roswell, GA

Wanted more fullness, but not fake duck lips. I went to a nurse practitioner in Roswell. She numbed me with lidocaine injections first. That's the worst part pain wise. About 30 min later, it hurts and you feel like you got punched in the face. I had no bruising. Very pleased. She said it would last about 6 months. I may get a little more. READ MORE

Breast Implant Revision & Axilla lipo

I got implants (Mentor HP round saline 325 cc filled to 360 & 370 ccs) 5 1/2 years ago in March 2008. They are sub-glandular (over the muscle) and the incision was aerolar. Most of my problems started about 2 years ago. 1. I have been having sharp, needle-like stabbing pain in my cleveage area 2. The center of my clevage has shifted to the right (the middle of my breasts no longer align with... READ MORE

Botox First-timer - Atlanta, GA

I had Botox on Saturday for the first time. I didn't know what to expect, but I have been thinking about it for about a year now. I am 27 years old and my forehead horizontal lines are becoming more permanent fixtures on my face, likely from sun damage and staring at a computer all day. I had a very strong "1" and a slight "11" according to the doctor, and she said that since I am younger,... READ MORE

I poted not to take too much Valium...

Yes, should last 9-12 months! Very much worth it. READ COMMENT

It was an additional $900, pretty good price because I was essentially having surgery on the same area & didn't have to pay for additional anesthesia. He did not have to make any additional incisions, which was a pleasant surprise. It... READ COMMENT

I don't think that is normal. I could feel a "pulling" sensation up until about a month or so ago, but never constant burning. It is probably your body telling you to rest. it's amazing how much we use out pectoralis major muscle in... READ COMMENT
