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

DR.BLAKE IS AWESOME. HE IS AN EXCELLENT DR. AND SO HAPPY YOU SUGGESTED HIM. I WOULD RECOMMEND HIM TO ANYBODY. MY FACE IS STILL SWOLLEN,BUT IT HAS GONE ALOT. I WILL HAVE STITCHES FROM EYE LIDS TAKN OUT ON 21ST. MY NECK LOOKS REALLY GOOD AND I A HAPPY.

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

MY HUSBAND TOLD ME BEFORE SURGERY I DID NOT HAVE TO DO THIS FOR HIM HE WAS HAPPY WITH THE WAY I WAS, BUT IF I WANTED IT TO GO FOR IT. MY 2 DAUGHTERS AND 4 FRIENDS THAT I TOLD SAID THE SAME THING. THEY LOVED ME THE WAY I WAS, BUT IF THIS IS WHAT I WANTED TO GO FOR IT.

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

1800MYSURGEON HELPED ME BY GIVING ME THE NAMES OF DRS IN MY INSURANCE PLAN AND TELLING ALL ABOUT THEM.WHERE THEY WERE LOCATED, WHAT THEY ALL DID. HOW TO PROCEED FORWARD WITH FINDING THE RIGHT DOCTOR FOR ME

Can you describe your surgery and recovery?

I TALKED TO THE CLINIC SEVERAL TIMES BEFORE HE ACTUAL OPERATION. I KNEW WHAT WOULD BE HAPPENING AND HOW LONG I WOULD BE THERE THE DAY OF SURGERY AND HOW TO TAKE CARE OF MYSELF AND WHAT TO EXPECT.MY HUSBAND WAS ALSO TOLD EVERYTHING. M1ST NIGHT WE BOTH WERE UP ALMOST EVERY ONE. I SLEPT AFTER THY REMOVED MY HUGH HEAD BANDAGE. 2ND NIGHT SLEPT A LITTLE BETTER. EACH NIGHT AFTER I SLEPT ALMOST THOUGH NIGHT. I AM TAKING THE DAILY VITAMINS THAT I BOUGHT THRU THE CLINIC. THINK THEY HELP A LOT

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

MAKE SURE YOU ASK ALL THE QUESTIONS YOU HAVE NO MATTER WHAT THEY ARE. TALK TO PEOPLE YOUR AGE WHO HAD SIMILAR SURGERY THROUGH THE DOCTOR. AT LEAST TWO. IF THIS WHAT YOU WANT DO IT - NOT WHAT SOME ELSE WHATS

How do you feel about your result?

SO FAR I AM HAPPY BUT I KNOW I HAVE MORE RECOVERY TO GO. TODAY IS THE 5TH DAY SINCE SURGERY AND I FEEL WONDERFUL. I AM BRUSIED YET, SO DO NOT PLAN ON GOING OUT IN PUBLIC YET. HOPE NEXT WEEK.
