As an avid runner and lover of hot yoga, it’s safe to say North Georgia resident Louise leads an active lifestyle. Despite feeling physically vibrant, Louise began to notice the aged appearance on the face gazing back through the computer screen and desired a reflection that matched the vitality she felt on a daily basis. Initially cosmetic facial procedures seemed daunting, but after three years of consideration, Louise no longer wanted an appearance that made her look older than she was and took the first steps to looking as young as she felt.
“At first I wasn’t sure about facial plastic surgery because I didn’t want to be vain and spend money on my face,” Louise recalled, “but when you consider the costs we spend on makeup and hair annually, it didn’t really seem that bad. My family was my biggest supporter and encouraged me to pursue my procedure without making me feel guilty.” After extensive online research of combing through online reviews, Louise decided to set up a consultation with Dr. Burstein to discuss her facial rejuvenation options. “The supporting comments from previous patients combined with the fact that he is a face specialist who also performs pediatric surgery made Dr. Burstein very appealing,” Louise shared. “During my consultation, Dr. Burstein was so friendly and confident in his expertise. He explained the process very clearly and sharing his portfolio of before and after pictures made the overall experience much better.”
In December 2013, Dr. Burstein performed neck lift surgery, lower blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) and a temporal lift (brow lift). Neck lift surgery removes excess, sagging skin and tightens neck muscles for a youthfully-contoured neck and jaw line. To address deep wrinkles, furrows and sagging eyebrows, Dr. Burstein performed a brow lift on the upper third of Louise’s face using the endoscopic technique. Additionally, lower transconjunctival blepharoplasty, which removes fat pockets and excessive skin that contributes to under-eye bags, was performed to revive the tired appearance that was the motivation for Louise’s combination procedure. Finally, Louise received a 30% TCA peel to address hyperpigmentation concerns by improving her overall skin tone and texture.
Today Louise’s reflection mirrors her youthful vigor. “I am very pleased with my results and I have begun taking better care of my skin just as I have taken care of my body in terms of exercising. Maintaining my plastic surgery results has become a new motivation. I am much more cautious of things, like damage caused by the sun and the importance of regular, on-going maintenance. My surgery has provided me a new perspective on taking better care of my skin,” Louise expressed. “Dr. Burstein and his staff were amazing and overall I couldn’t be happier.”
