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

I saved thousands of dollars by getting injectable fillers in my cheeks. It lifted my face up by filling in the loss of fat I have at 53 years of age. A facelift alone would not fill up the loss of fat in my face. Fillers are best for me since I don't have wrinkles yet. My face looks real good now, I have fullness all the way to my mouth, just like when I was in my 20's. I put off a facelift that would have costed around $8,000. The injectable filler was $1,000-- big difference.

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

My boyfriend was worried at first, but was amazed by the lack of scars and recovery time. We went to Las Vegas 5 days later.

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

1800mySurgeon was very dedicated to finding me a doctor. They didn’t give up until I was completely satisfied. The plastic surgeon 1800mySurgeon found for me was very honest about my request. He told me I didn't need a facelift. This referral service found me an honest Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who is not just in the field for the money. I highly recommend 1800mySurgeon.

Can you describe your surgery and recovery?

Dr. Kapoor gave me a sedative before he injected my filler. He also gave me valium for anxiety after I was done. My face was swollen and sore for a few days but it looked so good I didn't care.

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

It looks good right after you are done. You don't have to wait. The results show immediately, which I like.

How do you feel about your result?

When I get up in the morning and look in the mirror, I love my face. I look a lot younger. My face is full, not pulled back. It is perfect for what I needed.
