Review: How I fared as a male facelift
Tom’s Face Lift
I was recently divorced and decided to undergo some facial skin tightening to improve my look and hopefully get more looks from the ladies. I did some research on Cosmetic Surgeons in the Vancouver area and booked some consultations. I picked Dr. Benjamin Gelfant to do the work and I am very glad that I did.
Dr. Gelfant explained why I looked tired and aged and what would help; we decided eventually on my having a facelift and forehead lift. I waited a considerable time before going ahead with surgery and never felt pressured to proceed.
The surgery was done on a Thursday and I spent the night in their recovery area. I was under the care of a nurse and doctor through the night and my daughter drove me home in the morning. My daughter spent a couple days with me while the swelling was high and my energy was low. By Saturday I was up and about looking after myself and on Monday I was shopping for groceries. My energy level kept going up and I was becoming more active in a few days. After 2 ½ weeks I was back to work and into my regular schedule. The comments at the office were “You look so relaxed. You look younger”. All I said was “Aren’t vacations great”. No one asked me if I had done work as you couldn’t see any scars. I used a little stick makeup to cover the high forehead scars for a few weeks until the redness was gone.
I highly recommend Dr. Benjamin Gelfant at his Broadway Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Centre. My experience there was better than I thought it would be which I credit to the professionalism of Dr. Gelfant and his team.
Thanks for the great work Dr. Gelfant. It feels good to just have more women take a 2nd look.
