Don’t settle for a “windswept” look from traditional face lifts.
In addition to having shorter scars and a more natural look, you also will experience shorter recovery times.
A Patient’s Video Journey for a Short Scar Facelift
As I was perusing a building and rehab magazine and at the same time trying to think of what my surgery meant to me so I could write a testimonial. I happened to glance at a before and after photo of a house. The before picture was of a home whose appearance was of a much weathered exterior, it was sagging and in a neglected state. A sad appearance all in all. Then the after photo. “Wow,” I gleefully exclaimed. “That is me.” What marvelous change. The roof had been raised, windows replaced and the shrubbery clipped and trimmed. As Dr. Huang (retired) so kindly said to me. “All I did was refresh your looks.” No Dr. Huang (retired), you renovated my face. You have out done yourself with the short-scar facelift. Thank you so very much and also thank you to your knowledgeable and cheerful staff.
Over the years I know there were solutions to the negative visual aging parts of my face and body. On an irregular basis I would read up on the latest and least invasive plastic surgeries, laser treatments, skin care miracles and etc. Most seemed out of reach or not worth the time and money. Also what I found personally annoying or downright disgusting about my physical aging would change and multiply going from eye lift to tummy tuck to the “whole enchilada.” Not being fond of pain, discomfort, lost time on living or possible visible scars, I stayed away from plastic surgery. I did what I could as far as exercise and nutrition.
Finally I assessed what was bothering me most and would make me feel the best. It was the wrinkled front of my neck and my increasingly uneven jaw line. When a friend of mine went to Dr. Huang (retired) to have a procedure to remedy these same issues I questioned her mercilessly. She was very happy to share with me the details, results and the speedy recovery which is called Short Scar Surgery. She looked great! After looking at more information on line, I scheduled a consultation with Dr. Huang (retired). She was very encouraging telling me I was a good candidate for the procedure. We made a plan for skin care leading up to a personalized surgery, which seemed least invasive and would heal rapidly with minimal scarring. I got all I wanted and more. My skin looked more youthful (less dry and wrinkly) especially the neck! My jaw had a smoother line. I thought of it as if you have an article of ill fitting clothing, you take it to a seamstress and have it tailored to fit. The unexpected bonus was Dr. Huang (retired) monitoring my progress over the last year very carefully. She was happy to answer my questions and offer advice.
Almost a year later, I have forgotten that this isn’t the “old me”, because there is no drastic change, just a calm and perky rather than drawn and tired looking me. People have told me I look 10 to 15 years younger!
Chris said the reason she had the procedure is that she wanted to look as young as she felt. She is so happy with her overall result and the fact that she doesn’t look like a different person, just refreshed and younger. She is most pleased with her eyes, when she gets up in the morning, she doesn’t have any bags under her eyes.
The reason Mary had her procedure at SCPS, is because of the positive atmosphere at our clinic. Mary and her husband Bill were impressed that Dr. Huang (retired) put her safety and health first, and that she listened to the patients concerns and didn’t push her to have the procedure. They were also impressed with the nursing staff at the ASC, and how they kept Bill updated during the course of Mary’s surgery. Overall their experience was great and they would highly recommend Dr. Huang (retired), and SCPS to anyone interested in having a cosmetic procedure.
