After visiting Dr. Burstein’s website to learn more about his credentials and the procedures he performs, Audwin felt like it was a good fit and was certain of this after his consultation. He especially appreciated the fact that Dr. Burstein specializes in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery.
Similar to our August Spotlight Patient, Audwin had a few procedures to target multiple cosmetic issues. He had a facelift, upper eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), nose surgery (rhinoplasty), neck liposuction, horizontal osteotomy of the mandible (HOM), and a TCA peel last June. While facelift surgery focuses on comprehensive sagging of the entire face, Audwin received an upper eyelid lift to eliminate the hooded appearance of his eyelid s and neck liposuction to add definition to his jaw line. Although not always considered an anti-aging procedure, studies have shown rhinoplasty can make patients look younger and can add balance to the face. The HOM procedure is intended to add facial balance for those with a receding mandible (lower jaw) and gives an angular structure, strengthens the neck and jaw line, and adds balance to the side profile. Audwin’s new look was completed with a 30% TCA peel to improve uneven skin texture, hyperpigmentation, scars, fine lines, and wrinkles.
Audwin is very pleased with his plastic surgery results and says he feels more confident. He did not want to come out of surgery looking like he had plastic surgery. He wanted to look good—like a better version of himself rather than coming out looking windblown or like someone else. He believes Dr. Burstein did a great job of accomplishing this result. Although people can’t put their finger on what has changed, Audwin says he receives positive comments more frequently about his appearance.Overall, Audwin was very impressed with Dr. Burstein and his medical team as well as the Northside Hospital staff. He said he “couldn’t have asked for better care.” Not only was everyone friendly and professional, they were genuinely concerned and wanted to help in every way possible to achieve the results he was after. He was grateful that Dr. Burstein took the time to answer questions and explain the ins and outs of his procedures.
