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

I am 72 years old and in excellent condition and health. I must say I have a body of a much younger person. My face started to sag a few years ago and I had an old face on a younger body so my husband suggested that I have a face lift and I agreed. The result was remarkable and Dr. Sutkin did an outstanding job. It still looks like me and people can't quite figure out why I look so much better. Is it the new hair-do or.....?

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

My daughter has not seen me yet and my son has not even noticed. I think with my son it is that he probably thinks that I look better, but he can't figure out why.

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

I asked 1800mySurgeon for a local surgeon and checked out Dr. Sutkin's qualifications on the Internet. I was impressed about what I found and was totally convinced that he was the right surgeon after I met with him. Thank you 1800mySurgeon.

Can you describe your surgery and recovery?

This was a 3 -hour surgery so the first few days I took it easy. The surgery was on a Friday and on the following Wednesday I was directing my choir and on Sunday we had a performance. So I think I did pretty well. Now a month later I'm almost totally healed.

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

Call 1800mySurgeon. Then do some research on the Internet about the surgeons that they have suggested. The next thing is to meet with the surgeon and ask a lot of questions. My husband came with me to the meeting.

How do you feel about your result?

I'm so happy I had this done. In my business I have to meet with a lot of people and as a director of a choir we do a lot performances. It is important to feel good about yourself and the surgery really made a difference for me.
