Peggy’s Blog: Facelift Recovery Conclusion

June 30th, 2010

I decided to share my experience on the blog because I think anyone considering a facelift  can benefit from the experience of others who have had the procedure.   Maybe the most important word to remember throughout your recovery process is “patience.”  A facelift is not a quick fix, but major surgery and it takes time to lose the swelling, fluid build-up and it takes awhile for everything to get back to normal.  I can’t wait to really see my own final result.

I also suggest that you shouldn’t go into it thinking it will make you look like a movie star when it is done.

Having realistic expectations is a topic that Dr. Bashioum discusses during an office consultation.   I feel comfortable with the way I look now.   My son was actually concerned I would look like some of the older women on TV that have had excessive cosmetic surgery, but he had no need to worry because that is not what I was seeking.   A quick look through Dr. Bashioum’s Before/After photos shows his more natural approach for facelifts and my result is predictably in line with them.

In closing, I am pleased with my facelift results.   Life is short, so I hope to live the rest of mine looking good!

Thank you for sharing this incredible experience with me.


Peggy’s Blog: Facelift Recovery Continues

June 29th, 2010

Would I  have facelift surgery  again if given the choice?  I would have the surgery again, in a heartbeat.   I also had Botox ® and Restalyne ® at the time of my surgery and I was happy with the results.   I plan on continuing with both injections as needed.  I opted for a natural facelift and I am happy with my rested, more youthful appearance now.  I don’t look 30, but I look a whole lot better.  I earned the title “Nana New Face” from my grandchildren.  Recently the group I was working with at their school said, “You must be Chelsie’s Mom, you can’t be her Grandma!”  I told them I was 65 and they were shocked, so I think Dr. Bashioum did a great job, with what he had to work with.

My friends and family have been very supportive.  I told everyone I know, including my friends on facebook, that I was having the surgery.  No point in hiding it and besides, I wanted all the sympathy I could get, ha.     I  recently saw  a group of my friends who I had not seen for the past 2 weeks and upon seeing me they remarked, “Wow!  You are looking great and we can see a huge change.”  Right now I can even see a big change just from a week ago, as my recovery continues.   My husband loves the change.

Share this journey of renewal with me and check back to read part 2 of my final thoughts about this experience.
