I am Glad I treated Myself to Face and Neck lift Surgery
Procedure specific satisfaction rating
I am getting old and frankly it showed. I was long overdue for face and neck lift surgery when I got it done. I had been searching for the previous 8 years before my surgery for a plastic surgeon who could give me what I wanted. I started aging prematurely with sagging skin, which runs in my family. I wanted to do something and become proactive about it. I had lived in LA for a while and I didn't like any of the surgeons there. I then went to the Bay Area and couldn't find any plastic surgeons in San Francisco. All of the surgeons I met with told me they would make me look like I was back in high-school. I didn't want that. I wanted to look more rested and more age appropriate. I wanted to look 10-15 years younger than my age, not like I was a teenager.
My recovery went very well. I had a week of downtime and each week after that I got progressively better. Shockingly, I had very little bruising after the procedure. I attribute this to Dr. Ronan's technique of using your own blood as glue to put your skin back on. I believe it's called TISSEEL. My neck didn't bruise either and the only issue I had was a small reaction to the bandage I was wearing. That's really all I went through during my recovery.
Eight weeks after my surgery I was able to return to the gym and all of my normal activities. I just feel terrific now. I am so thankful I waited to find the right surgeon. Dr. Ronan is so progressive in his thinking and I am very happy with my final results. His staff was wonderful and answered any questions I had. I am glad I treated myself to this surgery and it was so worth it.
