“I am thrilled with my lower face lift and buccal fat removal with Mr Waterhouse, the results look natural and the whole experience has been a very positive and rewarding one. Over the last 10 years I had the occasional treatment with hyaluronic filler to add volume around the cheek area and try and lift the face and was happy that it was keeping age at bay. However, my aging accelerated when I hit my early 50’s and I noticed my jawline was becoming loose and jowly. I booked a consultation to have some cheek filler with Mr Waterhouse, but he explained more filler would just make my face look rounder and wouldn’t do anything to lift the face in particular the jowls. I’ve been a patient of Mr Waterhouse’s for 10 years and have only ever known him to err on the side of caution. He has a very measured and careful approach and has never encouraged a surgical solution over a more non-invasive one, if it would produce the desired result. So when he explained that a mini lower facelift would restore youth and balance back to my face I didn’t hesitate as I could see my jowls were really aging me. He also explained that I had some herniated buccal fat in my cheeks which when removed would give a much better facelift result. I had my surgery two months later and I am thrilled with the results. The operation took three hours and I experienced minimal bruising and swelling. I experienced some pain around my ears at night where the incisions were made, and my cheeks felt quite numb. My face and neck felt quite tight, but after about 2 weeks the tightness began to ease. The overall experience was much better than I’d imagined, I thought I would look very bruised and beaten-up post-surgery, but it was quite the opposite. I am now 10 weeks post-surgery, and my face looks great, at least 10 years younger and most importantly natural and not in any way “done”. I no longer have a square heavy jawline and the natural oval face of my youth has been restored and my cheekbones look amazing. My skin is prone to scarring but I’m delighted that Mr Waterhouse was so meticulous with the stitches and placed the incisions carefully in the ear folds so that the scars are now virtually invisible and easily covered up with a tiny amount of makeup. I didn’t tell any family or friends (apart from my partner who’s also thrilled) about my surgery and have only had positive comments like “you look great”, “have you lost weight?” I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Mr Waterhouse, he and his team are the epitome of excellence, if you want a beautiful natural and balanced result, then he is the right surgeon.“
