After serving over 30 years as a lead teacher at a juvenile disciplinary school, Gwendolyn retired and decided on plastic surgery to regain a refreshed, youthful appearance. With concerns over her nose and a sagging jawline, Gwendolyn conducted extensive research on facial plastic surgeons and procedures to find the right doctor for her. Before choosing Dr. Fernando Burstein, she had consulted with two other Atlanta facial plastic surgeons but decided to continue researching doctors for her specific needs. After visiting Dr. Burstein’s website and viewing his credentials and before and after galleries, Gwendolyn scheduled her consultation and chose him as her surgeon. “His specialties in facial surgery gave him a spark,” she recalls from her consultation. “He was so knowledgeable about his work, more so than the other surgeons I met with and he knew exactly what I was looking for.”
Originally from Albany, Georgia, Gwendolyn was concerned about her family history of noses that expand and appear larger with age. She was also looking to treat a drooping jaw line that caused an aged appearance. After her consultation, Gwendolyn decided on a rhinoplasty, neck liposuction, and Ultherapy® skin tightening. Dr. Burstein performed rhinoplasty by reshaping and narrowing the base of Gwendolyn’s nose for a result more proportionate with the rest of her facial features. To address her chin and jaw area, Dr. Burstein used liposuction to remove a pocket of excess fat on her neck. Dr. Burstein’s nurse practitioner, used Ultherapy® non-surgical skin tightening to firm areas of loose skin on Gwendolyn’s neck.
Even though her procedures were performed a few months ago, she has already seen noticeable results and has had a pleasant recovery. She says, “My overall experience with Northside Hospital and Dr. Burstein and his medical team was excellent. They were helpful and supportive and provided great aftercare instruction.” After her surgery, Gwendolyn was pleased that nobody, not even her close friends and family, suspected she had plastic surgery even though they noticed she looked different and well-rested.
Now that Gwendolyn has achieved her aesthetic goals, she is looking to pursue a second career working with younger children. She has also joined a gym and is continuously working on improving her health. She feels refreshed and ready for her future endeavors.
