I had a drainless tummy tuck w/ muscle repair, 360 lipo, fat transfer to my hips to create some curves to my round shape!! and mini arm lift. (I will post more vulnerable pictures on real self if you’d like to check them out.) I am still swollen, and I cannot wait until my final results!
Picture are with the same jeans (lighting makes jeans look darker). I am loving my new curves and this confidence!!
Dr. G is very knowledgeable and he cared about my condition.I felt completely understood. Everyone in his office treated me with genuine care, and a special thank you to Ellen for help with my paperwork.
I decided to visit a local plastic surgeon to see what my options were. After spending a great deal of time scanning reviews, I finally chose to make an appointment with Dr. Gutowski at aFresh Med Spa.
I had a lot of reservations about going to a plastic surgeon’s office. I envisioned a staff of snooty people with fake faces and lots of attitude. I was so wrong about this! The doctor and everyone on staff is friendly, welcoming, and have natural, yet refreshed faces. It feels comfortable and relaxing to visit their spa.
Dr. Gutowski took great care to ask me what my goals were, and talked about options within my budget.
First we discussed my drooping upper eye lids (ptosis). Dr. Gutowski referred me to an opthalmologist who, after identifying how the ptosis affected my vision, was able to perform a procedure to lift the upper eyelids, and it was completely covered by Medicare.
To deal with the broken blood vessels on my nose, Dr. G’s nurse performed a series of laser treatments to remove the redness.
Next the Dr and his nurse added filler to my face that not only filled the deepening lines, but also raised the skin and reduced the laxity. I should mention that I had previously assumed fillers leave people with puffed-up alien faces, like you see on C-list actors on TV. This was not the case for me. My face isn’t puffy, nor do I look “done.” I just look younger and refreshed. In fact my wife was amazed at the results, saying that I look 15 years younger. I see it myself, but I am too humble to say so.
I have learned that with filler, the person performing the injections is critical to the results. Dr. G’s nurse, Sydney, is not only well trained, but is also quite skilled at injecting filler, where it reduces the look of aging, and no more.
Finally, Dr G recommended topical products I can use on my face each night, that have greatly improved the appearance of my skin, and reduced the dark circles under my eyes.
I am so glad I chose Dr Gutowski and aFresh Med Spa. I am very pleased with the results, and how everything was completed within a minimal budget. I highly recommend Dr G and his staff! They converted me to someone that now knows you can leave their office looking refreshed and younger, and nothing like like a C-list alien.
