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

I always knew I would have a facelift one day. I exercise alot and am thin, but the face does not keep it's youth. I also teach young children and want them to think I am also young and I want to keep working atleast ten more years. I am 60 years old now. Also when the face looks younger one feels younger.

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

My husband was slightly worried about the procedure. He was an ex- marine and does not believe about all this plastic surgery. My friends were all for it. I never told my family so they would not worry.

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

They were friendly and answered my questions. They always answered immediately and were very nice and helpful.

Can you describe your surgery and recovery?

My surgery lasted about 2 hours and I was treated like a queen. No one was rude or rushed, everyone kept me warm and asked if I understood everything. When I wokeup in recovery they immediately asked if I was in pain and gave me medicine. Everyone was so attentive and nice.

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

To go see Dr. Tattlebaum. He was great, my facelift came out exactly as I wanted it. I did not have the windblown look and everything is natural looking. Friends say I look rested.

How do you feel about your result?

So happy, perfect, recovery was very fast, back to work in two weeks. I love my neck area, feel atleast ten years younger. A very natural look and I still look like me.
