When Becky first started considering facial plastic surgery several years ago, she conducted thorough research about prospective procedures and scheduled consultations with various plastic surgeons to find the right fit for her. Since Becky had never undergone general anesthesia or a surgical procedure beforehand, finding an experienced and trustworthy physician was imperative to her. After visiting several surgeons, Becky chose Dr. Fernando Burstein upon first meeting him, “I was immediately drawn to his personality,” she says about Dr. Burstein. “I loved that he specialized in head and neck surgery as well as pediatric [surgery], since that takes a special person.”
Originally from Calhoun, Georgia, Becky worked alongside her husband of 38 years, assisting him with his two carpet businesses. As a mother of two daughters and grandmother to two grandchildren, Becky decided on her procedure since gravity and age began showing its physical effects. After discussing her options with Dr. Burstein, Becky knew exactly which procedures she needed and chose neck lift surgery, blepharoplasty, and a temporal lift (brow lift). Dr. Burstein also performed a TCA chemical peel after her surgical procedures to improve results.
Neck lift surgery removes sagging skin and tightens neck muscles for a slimmer, more youthful appearance of the neck and jaw line. Dr. Burstein also used liposuction to remove small areas of excess fat along the neck and chin for a more contoured result. To address the signs of aging near her eyes, Becky had a temporal lift to smooth furrows and remove excess skin near her brows and eyes. Dr. Burstein also performed lower blepharoplasty and removed under-eye bags causing a tired appearance. Using a technique called transconjunctival blepharoplasty, Dr. Burstein made an incision within the interior of the lower eyelid so there would be no external scarring. After her procedure, Becky received a 30% TCA chemical peel to help eliminate additional fine lines and wrinkles.
Overall, Becky was highly satisfied with her results and her experience with Dr. Burstein and Northside Hospital. She noted that Dr. Burstein’s medical team was very attentive and she experienced almost no pain at all during recovery. She says she would definitely recommend Dr. Burstein and encourages patients to stay overnight at the hospital for exceptional patient care.
