Looking the Way You Feel – Plastic Surgery Patient Success Story

plastic surgery success storyDid you see COSMED’s patient featured in the Spring 2012 issue of New You magazine? She was featured as one of this month’s top 5 Inspired Patient success stories!

Here’s an except from the article. To see the original printed version, click here.

Roberta did her research, but the determining factor actually came from seeing results. “I went to a wedding of one of my former students. She, her mother and her grandmother had had the same doctor, Dr. Alejandro Quiroz, over a period of 20 years. They were thrilled with the results, and they all looked great. I was convinced and made the call”.

The results couldn’t have made her happier. “Every day someone tells me how good I look, or that I look younger by the day, or that I’m gorgeous. Now who wouldn’t want to hear that? That is so affirming,” she says. But even more important is that I feel good about myself.”

Roberta  had a Face lift, Neck lift, Brow lift, Dermal Abrasion, Fat Injection to Lips and Laser Resurfacing at COSMED Plastic Surgery Center in Mexico.

Cosmetic Surgery Patient Testimonial

This Mother / Daughter team from Southern California  has been coming to CosMed Clinic for 20+ years

This Mother / Daughter team from Southern California has been coming to CosMed Clinic for 20+ years

The following story was sent to CosMed Clinic by actual patients: a beautiful mother / daughter team who have enhanced their appearances with the help of Dr. Quiroz and Dr. Fuentes for more than 20 years.

About Kris and Kierstin

We hear testimonials all the time about what a great experience a patient has had. However its not often that we hear where the experience exceeded above and beyond consistently for over 20 years for not only a mother and daughter but also the 25+ friends and family they’ve referred along the way.

You may feel this is a bit lengthly but in the 10 minutes it takes you to read this, you’ll not only will be saving yourself days of research and hours of consultations  but  I hope it inspires you to put your trust into one the most respected and talented plastic surgeon teams around.

I easily could start this story with how amazing Dr.Qurioz & Dr. Fuentes are but let’s face it, when it comes to cosmetic surgery in Mexico, safety is a big concern for most –even if the cosmetic surgeons are known to be the best in the world. So let’s get the safety issues out of the way first…

I want you to picture this. You drive (or rent, caravan, etc..) across the border, over a freeway, past three stops, take a right, park in a guarded parking lot, walk across the street and next thing you’re opening the doors into a Beverly Hills experience with a warm receptionist to greet you. Total time from border to door is about 18 minutes. Okay, feeling comfortable so far? As you sit down in this spa like atmosphere start talking to the few others in the waiting room and what you find just may surprise you.

Patients aren’t there because it’s affordable but rather by choice. I met a woman from Bel Air, owned clothing company and said she can afford anyone and Dr. Q is the ONLY one she’ll see.

The facility is impeccable and the personal care is beyond anything I’ve seen in the states (if you’ve noticed the downward spiral in our health care system you’d agree).  After surgery, you’re awaken by only the finest staff pampering you with attention to detail and devoted attentiveness. When ready, you’re transferred into a premium hotel conveniently located near the facility for follow up visits. The entire process seems effortless.

Now let’s have a quick chat on malpractice (as we know how sue obsessed the states are). My advice is to invest more time in finding the right doctor rather than the right attorney. If you’re concerned the moment you walk into a doctor office, you’re choosing the wrong one. Negligent doctors practice in your city, your state and around the world so don’t discriminate solely to when you cross the border.

With 20 years of personal experience and 25 referrals it’s difficult to sum up a few stories but I will do my best. I had a friend, vibrant and stunning but with tired eyes even the best MAC makeup artist couldn’t overcome. She consulted with the top Los Angeles and Newport surgeons that all concurred she needed a blow lift. One night, I introduced her to my mom’s friend (very respected woman in OC) who had a facelift with Dr. Q. Not only did she praise him as if he was her own son but finished with a story in which Dr. Q had surprised her by correcting an imperfection she mentioned that bothered her prior to surgery. Did I mention he did it free of charge? That was all my friend needed to hear to make a consultation with CosMed Clinic in Meixco.

Dr. Qurioz & Dr. Fuentes told her she didn’t need a brow lift, but $100 worth of botox injections around her eyes. No other doctor had said that.

Interesting don’t you think? The results were remarkable. How about another quick example to takeaway? I was dating a very successful plastic surgeon in the states (no name to protect the innocent) and I told him not to take it personally but I would still use my own doctor and to my surprise his reply, “I would to, he does an excellent job”.

I don’t go into detail about the procedures that my mom and I have had. Although we are extremely open and are thrilled to talk about it (feel free to contact CosMed Clinic and request our phone numbers), we have to say (without bragging too much) we don’t look like we’ve had anything done and we like it that way. Trust me, living in Newport Beach, I see the work of bad plastic surgeons everyday but sadly, the patients have no idea. They just keep going in for more because their doctors won’t tell them no either. Speaking of bad jobs, a longtime friend of my mom’s had a $40,000 facelift by one of the best doctors in Arizona that turned out to be a disaster (and no, I didn’t make a mistake on the price tag).  After meeting with the team, she left with tears of joy and relief (we celebrated with cadillac margaritas!) Dr. Quiroz is fixing the doctor’s mistake giving her the beautiful glow she was intended to have (for under $5,500!). Every doctor will have their best work in their portfolio so how do you find their typical results?

You read testimonials like mine that have known their doctor over 20 years and have referred countless satisfied people, one who doesn’t get rewarded in turn for testimonials (put my hand on the bible) but is writing this because she believes in his craft and his passion.

What else can I say but that Dr. Quiroz are Dr. Fuentes are masters in their field, they are true artists. Yes it’s an overused word in the world of plastic surgery but there’s no other way to describe them. While others claim to be, they are the real deal and within five minutes upon introduction, you will agree. Trust in them to change your life and you won’t be disappointed, but rather kicking yourself wondering why it took you so long.

How the Signs of Aging and Weight Gain are affecting your Career

First Impressions Make a Difference. The job applicants who look young, fit and confident have an advantage in today's competitive job market.

First Impressions Make a Difference. The job applicants who look young, fit and confident have an advantage in today’s competitive job market.

It’s unfair. It’s illegal. But the fact is, your looks can play a critical factor in your ability to get hired or get promoted– especially in today’s job market where the competition is tougher than ever.

Whether you are looking for a raise, promotion or a new job, employers are looking for motivated leaders and staff with energy, confidence and drive. And physically, these important traits can translate into the person who looks younger, healthier and fitter.

According to a recent American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) survey, 1 out of 10 working-age women are considering cosmetic surgery because they consider it a factor in helping them reach their career goals. 3.5 million (3% of those surveyed) admitted to already having cosmetic surgery specifically  for this reason. Finally, 80% of the group surveyed (approximately 92 million working women) agreed that having cosmetic surgery would increase their overall confidence, and thereby help them gain new clients or the job they want.

But cosmetic surgery in the workplace is not just for women. More and more men are choosing plastic surgery procedures to look and feel better and to have a healthier and younger look. Increasing self-esteem and aiding greatly in their careers to climb the ladder in today’s competitive business world. In business today, men wear their resumes on their faces. It is not enough to be qualified for a job you have to look qualified too.

Stubborn areas that are more resistant to improvement by diet and exercise are the main reasons men are enjoying the benefits of plastic surgery.

Men are often more pleased with subtle changes giving them a more balanced rejuvenated face and a trimmer and younger more refined image, enhancing them with a more chiseled and angular masculine overall appearance.

Some top cosmetic procedures for working men and women include:

before and after male facelift

Brow Lift (Forehead)
A brow lift helps to remove the tired angry look and restore a youthful, refreshed look that your face once had. Medical doctors use a technique that can improve the horizontal lines and furrows in your forehead. By removing these forehead muscles, a brow lift can raise the eyebrows and remove frown lines. CosMed‘s medical doctors use a conventional surgical method that hides the incision behind the hairline, resulting in smoother forehead skin and a refreshed more youthful appearance.

Eyelids (Blepharoplasty)
Eyelid surgery is one of the most common procedures that is performed to instantly restore your face’s youthful appearance. By removing fat, excess skin and muscle from the eyelid area, blepharoplasty can correct dropping upper eyelids and puffy bags below the eyes. You’ll look refreshed, energized, and may even experience better vision after your eyelid surgery. Receive this procedure alone or in conjunction with other facial enhancements to complete your new look.

Chin Augmentation (Mentoplasty)
Chin augmentation strengthens the appearance of a receding chin by increasing its projection and contour. Patients who wish to receive surgery of the chin either desire an enhancement (implant) or reduction (bone surgery). The goal of this surgery is to improve your profile by creating a balance between your chin and other facial features, increasing your self-esteem.

A facelift (rhytidectomy) can turn back time and improve/reduce the effects of aging. By tightening underlying facial muscles and removing areas of excess fat, medical doctors can help you achieve a more youthful and naturally refreshed look. A facelift will smooth and lift. CosMed Clinic’s medical team can perform your facelift alone or in conjunction with other procedures like a forehead lift, eyelid surgery, or nose reshaping.

Not quite ready for cosmetic surgery? Today, there are plenty of non surgical facial rejuvenation treatments. One of the most popular is called the Soft Lift.

The combination of BOTOX and Juvederm helps not only relax and smooth crow’s feet, forehead and frown lines, but fills out the volume in your face giving you a younger, natural look.

One of the first places to notice effects of aging is the face and neck. The effects of gravity, sun exposure, free radicals, weight loss and daily stress can become visible in the form of deep creases between the nose and mouth, slack jaw line, and fat deposits in the neck. Cosmetic facial surgery can take years off by lifting sagging tired skin, reducing fine lines, enhancing and creating a balance to your facial features.
