These pictures are shared with you in confidence and should not be shown to or shared with anyone else This is important, please.
These two pictures show the before on the left and the upper lids and neck being done in a relaxed non-smiling view in the one on the right.
Though the neck looks nice and smooth and the upper lids are done, we must ask just how much improvement there is by doing those two things.
Many doctors would say these eyelids were very well done and that the result is as good as possible.
If the eyes are less done, the look in these pictures could be the result .
There are many variations of possible results. And that is a good reason to do drawings. The drawings show some of the possibilities.
Occasionally we do dozens of drawings both for the benfit of the patient and also to find what is best to do.
If there are no drawings, which is almost equal to no planning, neither the patient or doctor really know what the result will be.
With drawings, the patient chooses the goal. The drawing chosen should be the most beautiful.
These two are the same as those above but smiling.
In the picture on the right the same surgery as above is done with the neck and upper lids, without the lower lids.
It is best if we can, to do a litle at a time rather than committing to something like the whole face. It may require many more visits, but still could be the best choice.
It is also good to make it as convenient as possible.
|Here is a profile with neck and upper lids.|
"What can you do for me?" is a common question we are asked and the pictures and drawings show better than any words can describe.
There are many more reasons we do drawings as is explained in pictures and text on the web site at these links -
These two pictures show the before on the left and much more being done to the face in a relaxed view with a pleasant expression.
Everyone looks better with a smile. So here is before and after smiling.
This is the look I would choose. And as can be seen, there is very little change in the upper lids.
This result is inspired by the picture below in black and white taken some years ago.
|Profile with face, neck and everything, including ear lobes.|
This picture of her in the early twenties was an inspiration and should be our goal.
Most of us want to look the best we can.
This page and pictures are only for you to see.
They are to help us understand how many procedures are required with at least two surgeries requiring all day each day and probably another day of surgery to do the finest work.
Since the face in this picture could not be more attractive, it might not be wise to have any other goal. To move in this direction would look better but not different,
The pictures on our web site show that this pretty much can all be done.
Thank you very much for sending this very nice lady to me . We enjoyed meeting her and Mr. Keenan. It takes a long time and lots of experience and knowledge to understand all this. It can be very important.
My favorite place to shop is the 99cent store. And I would not be in any hurry to jump into something so involved and expensive as this.
We should always do what is best for the patient, and only that: no more and no less.
It is good to see all the doctors we can and especially compare their results The internet is helpful for that.
Speaking with the other patients one encounters and seeing their results can be much better than just seeing the doctor or the doctor's staff. There should be honesty and humility in communication and no salesmanship, with showing and telling only the unvarnished truth.
Important considerations are Safety, Health, Comfort, a Painless Rapid Recovery, and a Permanent, Unsurpassably Beautiful Result with No Scars or Signs of surgery such a Pulled or Unnatural Look.
