Share your story about why you considered and ultimately had cosmetic surgery.

At the young age of 66 I found myself with what I called turkey neck. i felt that everyone looking at me thought the same thing. It was taking away my self confidence so I decided to do something about it. I went to the 1800mySurgeon and they recommended my plastic surgeon.

How did your friends and family feel about your decision to have a procedure?

My family thought I was crazy as they did not see what I saw. I guess this is something only you really see. I have a sister that was my best cheerleader. She is in Florida and all she could do was tell me how great I would feel and how it would give me more confidence. I believe she really gave me the push that I needed.

How did 1800MySurgeon help you through the process of finding a qualified plastic surgeon?

The night I called 1800mySurgeon, it was Melissa that received my call and said she had only heard good things about Dr. Gartner and said she would definitely recommend him. She then helped me make an appointment. i was very excited after our talk.

Can you describe your surgery and recovery?

The day of surgery I was treated so special and everyone was wonderful in his office. I went to sleep and when i woke up I was not in pain. I was given something for pain but really did not need it.

What advice would you give to another person considering your same procedure?

When you do not feel right about yourself, it is important to take care of that feeling. Being uncomfortable and self-conscious only gets worse and affects your personality. Save your money and make a difference to yourself as you age gracefully.

How do you feel about your result?

Okay so the truth is that I can't stop looking at myself in the mirror. That is the truth. I absolutely feel wonderful inside and out.
