Facelift testimonial for Dr. Scott Thompson of Utah Facial Plastics.
“I could not be more pleased with my experience at Utah Facial Plastics and with Dr. Scott Thompson!
I did a lot of research to find the right doctor to perform my facelift surgery, with the MOST important criteria being a doctor that specializes in the face and neck (not tummy tucks & boobs). After doing plenty of research on-line, reading reviews, and watching TV interviews with Dr. Thompson (which made me feel like I already knew him when I met him for the first time), I was pretty sure he was the man for the job.
After going in for my consultation, I had no doubt that I was making the right decision – Dr. Thompson had such a lovely demeaner and he made me feel very comfortable about moving ahead with my surgery. I could tell by the way he studied and looked at my face that he had an “eye” for what would provide the most pleasing results. Jen R was fabulous and took away any doubts I had and assured me I would be very pleased with my results….and boy was she right!! My main goal from surgery was to get rid of my turkey-neck, but I thought while I was “going under” I would also do my upper eyelids and a lip lift, and Dr. Thompson recommended fat grafting on my checks…..and the results are amazing!
The recovery was a little uncomfortable (mainly the drains!), but never painful. I did not take any pain medication after the first night in the hospital, (I would highly recommend spending that first night in the hospital just for peace of mind and it’s nice to have someone take care of you (I was also very impressed with Lakeview Hospital!)) and then just some Tylenol PM the first few nights at home. Dr. Thompson even came by to check on me later that night in the hospital after he’d been in surgeries all day long! My mom and husband were very helpful with the dressing and caring of my incisions, and I would suggest having someone to help you the first few days – get pampered and enjoy the down time! My swelling and bruising were not bad and I went back to work 2 weeks after surgery (of course, I was still a little bruised and swollen, but everyone knew I was having the procedure so I wasn’t trying to hide anything).
It’s been 4 months now and everyday I’m more and more pleased (just when I think I couldn’t be any more pleased – I am)! Before surgery I was worried about scaring, but my incisions are fading beautifully. Sometime I look in the mirror and I almost forget what I used to look like, but then I look at my before photos and think, “holy smokes, I’m so glad I had my face/neck lift” and with the expertise of Dr. Thompson I still look like me, just me 10-15 years ago!
Thank you, Dr. Thompson, and everyone at UFP in Layton!”
