To combat the signs of aging, a neck lift procedure removes excess fat and skin from the jaw line and is often times done during a face lift surgery. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, over 26,000 surgeries were performed in 2014.
From the initial consultation to 3 months to date, the Dr. and his staff has been nothing but Wonderful! Every time I had a concern they treated me like I was the ONLY patient they had!!! Just extraordinary people with a lot of Love and Support for not only the office but for me as a patient! I will return one day for another procedure and this Dr. And his staff will most definitely be the place for me! THANK YOU Dr. Cuzalina for the Great experience and for being such an Awesome role model too your employees...it truely shows!!!! God Bless you for giving me the neck I've always wanted! Hehe Dr. Cuzalina has given me Higher self esteem than I had before! I'm so happy with the results! Thank you!!!!
Generally very kind team of professionals, with great expertise on the field. Surgical outcome was as hoped, and as expected. Overall, a very positive experience that I would recommend to others. Having this procedure has changed the appearance of my facial contours and neck, so that I feel better about how I look for my age. This gives me more positive energy and vitality every day!
Dr. Hanna explained what to expect during the surgery and explained the results I should expect. I was awake during the procedure and so I found Dr. Hanna and the medical staff to be professional, respectful and calming during the procedure. It was a positive experience. The procedure makes me feel years younger. Once again I like the way I look in pictures and I like how my neck/chin looks when I wear my hair up.
I liked the time they took to explain the procedure.The whole staff was very friendly both before and after the surgery.They made me feel comfortable about the procedure.
Dr. West was totally honest about what to expect and answered all questions. The nurses were friendly and knowledgeable. IIr really hasn't changed my everyday life, it I do feel more confident about my appearance,
The staff is wonderful....very caring, great demeanor and just all around pleasant. Dr. Biel and Kim make the office visits very easy.
The Dr and Staff was extremely knowledgeable and accommodating.
Made to feel very comfortable. Staff friendly. Onlything more helpful would be t advise patients to have a magnifying glass available the first night if you use glasses for reading (so you can see your phone etc) and to buy this pillow from Amazon. : Side Sleeper Pro Air Pillow Price:$30.35 + $6.35 shipping. It made the whole process not comfortable, but way more bearable. Has a hollow for your ear, and molds to the back of your head.
I was very satisfied with my surgery and a year later I still am. Everyone tells me I look 20 years younger. My lower face is still a little numb but I will take that any day to how I looked before. If I was to do it over I would have liked to have spent the night in a facility. After midnight I was in tremendous pain and nothing I did relieved it. I think I took 10 Hydro/codeines in 8 hours. I was able to reach the surgeon easily and he told me to use Tramadol in-addition to what I was doing. This worked. I didn't realize how long it would take for the swelling to go down. It was at least 6 weeks before I began to look like myself. I have recommended several friends to go there for surgery and 2 have had surgery that I know of. I really like my surgeon and the staff. They were all friendly and very informed. I had restalyne injections and May for some lines around my mouth. I really don't see that they did anything but maybe nothing can be done for them. Thank you for making my surgery a success.
During my appointments, every time, I felt like i had everyone's attention. I had a few procedures done at once...eyes, lower lift, neck lift, injections...I followed post-op instructions and the results were just as they said. No real bruising, and I was at walmart shopping 10 days after my surgery! I was still swollen, but certainly presentable to go out. I had a great experience! Definitely more confident. And i am much better about taking care of my skin as I'm aging.
,Just like the way it turned out still looking good can see the difference right away and made me feel better about myself
Dr. O'Daniel and his staff are knowledgeable, accessible, experienced and well qualified. Dr. O is an artist. As is his practice, prior to my surgery he made specific measurements and outlined exact modifications by referring to photographs of me in my 20s and 30s. The result is that I still look like me, only better! No one has guessed that I had cosmetic surgery; they just marvel about how healthy and well rested I look. Best investment I ever made! Best doctor ever! Dr's reference to actual photographs of me in my youth assured the best possible outcome.
Dr Chen is an artist and a technical master.I could not be more pleased. My confidence is increased.
Everything was professional yet caring. I was given all the information I need and the result is very pleasing. I just feel more confident in my appearance.
I felt like the office, the doctor, and his assistant were very attentive to my concerns, listening to my fears, and giving me valuable and honest answers to my questions. They were very reassuring! Their explanations, the surgery itself, and the follow up were all done in a highly professional manner. I had heard that the La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre was very good and they truly were! I had been very anxious about even inquiring about any cosmetic surgery, but I am so pleased that I had the procedure done. Now I look years younger than most of my high school classmates. I am very happy with how I look! Being in the dental profession for forty years, I have had very close-up"relationships with my patients, many of whom had had past cosmetic surgeries. Many of the "outcomes" didn't look good...they looked pulled, stretched, and almost looked like burn victims (those with multiple surgeries). I had earlier thought that I would never go through such a procedure! But when I had concerns about my own looks, I very anxiously scheduled a consultation. The rest is history! I feel much younger and confident in my looks! "
The doctor and staff were courteous and helpful and the outcome was good. I'm happier with my appearance.
Both surgical and office staff were highly informative, respectful and friendly!!!! Everyone went over and beyond to make it a pleasant experience. How everyone seemed to really care about me as a person & patient. Also I look as good as I feel!!
I love the way I look! My face/neck lift looks very natural and youthful , Dr Maxwell does a great job!
Dr Kelly is the best doctor I can find , ethic , sweet knowing the best look for me and the results are better than I ever expected . Adriana knows her job so well that you are so confident with the procedure and with the recovery , thanks both for all your care The look is amazing and so natural than nobody can tell that you had a surgery
