Aging skin develops fine lines and wrinkles, sun spots along with changes toward a more sallow complexion. While facelift and eyelid surgery can lift and reposition drooping facial skin the improvement of fine lines, wrinkles and dark spots can be best achieved through Fractional Laser Resurfacing.
I am not new to plastic surgery so I knew exactly what I was looking for in a facial plastic surgeon. After recommendations, research and consultations, I chose Dr. Weber for my face and neck lift. I must say, Dr. Weber is one amazing facial plastic surgeon.
Back in 1997 I had a facelift, brow-lift and upper and lower eyes. I was not impressed with the way I healed (basically horrible scarring). After visiting other plastic surgeons to get their opinion on what may have went wrong, I learned that the doctor pulled everything too tight and caused undo tension which ultimately left very wide scars in both my temple area and on top of my head. I can't begin to tell you how much time it took to correct the scarring.
Lucky for me, with time, 3 scar revisions and hair transplant, the outcome was ok and all in all, the lift has lasted for 14 years which is not bad when you think of it.
Needless to say, he ordeal left me very skiddish about getting another lift but I see the hands of time are at it again. While the PS still practices, I will use a different PS this time.
Thanks to RealSelf, I have picked out 2 surgeons and will have consultations with both in May as I hope to have the surgery performed in August.
I will keep you posted.
