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

Over the years one side of my neck started hanging lower----(turkey neck) and I had large and deep wrinkles in the lower face at age 70 I didnt want to look so wrinkled but on the other hand I didnt want to look 35---so after checking out 4 Doctors ----my husband and I felt very positive with Dr Heisteins plan

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

Everyone said go for it------as my wrinkles were deep and getting heavier------creams just are a waste of money---and the derm doctors all said to have the surgery

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

They came up with Dr Heistein and that was an excellent choice-----He emailed me that the service had contacted him with my name---after 3 emails back and forth I was sure he was my Doctor and we had a meeting

Can you describe your surgery and recovery?

my surgery was done at Harris Methodist hospital in southlake Texas-----it took almost 4 hours---and I was released when I felt it was safe to start home-----Today I went to the Drs office and had the big bandage taken off and everything checked over----I will wear my head band supporting my chin for the next 7 days-when I will see my doctor again

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

Be sure and use Dr Heistein in southlake Texas--- checking out other Drs is good so you know you made the right choice

How do you feel about your result?

too early ---since I have some swelling and will have to wear this neck band for the next week but soon I hope to have a younger looking face with many less wrinkles thanks to a very caring Doctor
