Barbara underwent a cheek/neck lift (Facelift) and Eyelid Surgery at our licensed surgery center, serving Scottsdale, Avondale, and communities throughout the greater Phoenix area.
My name is Barbara Magna. I've been coming to Dr. Guyette for about a year
and a half. I started coming to him because I was not happy with the way my
neck looked and I wanted to come in to get a surgical procedure evaluation.
When I got here, and I found out all the things they do, I have ended up
having IPL treatments, laser treatments, genesis treatments, I have some
laser treatments on the veins in my legs. I've done injectables. I've done
Botox, and I have had the surgical procedure on my neck.
I'm 62 years old. I felt that my neck, and especially my neck, just looked
older than what I really felt like. It was my desire that my body would
reflect how my spirit felt inside. That was one of the main reasons why I
took the plunge to have the surgery, too.
When I came to Dr. Guyette, I was just overwhelmed with how much I - I
mean, it was just I knew he was the man that I wanted to have do my
surgery. The staff was wonderful. Dr. Guyette was just incredible. He would
show me, with the tweezers or with a mirror, just what things would look
like and what could be done, what couldn't be done.
I don't think anything was over promised to me. Again, I didn't want to
look like I had anything done, I just wanted to look good and natural and
like myself. I didn't want someone looking at me not even recognizing me,
that type of a situation.
Upon leaving, I really knew that this was where I wanted to have everything
done, everything done and I was very happy that they were so all-inclusive.
It was like one stop, one team working on me, not a bunch of other people
trying to figure out what the other person hasn't done.
I said, "Show me what it would look like." He put a mirror up for me and he
took a tweezers and he showed me what the difference would be. When I got
done with my surgery and I saw that before picture, I almost died because I
would have hated my eyes if I hadn't had them done. That would have been
the next thing I would have been looking at, thinking, "Oh, my goodness.
How could you have missed your eyes?"
When I look at my before pictures, I don't even feel like it's me that I'm
looking at. I now reflect what I feel like inside. But I see pictures, in
fact, one of the things that cracks me up is I have a picture of myself
that was taken with some girlfriends probably about two months before my
surgery. The other day my girlfriend walked through the house and she said,
"You've got to get rid of that picture. It looks like your older sister."
I definitely feel that I represent what I feel like inside, and I'm very,
very pleased with what I see. When I see pictures of myself with my
friends, I'm not nit-picking at the picture saying, "Oh look at this," or,
"Look at that." I'm just pleased. It's not anything that's overly done. I
mean it's just good. It's just good.
