Hi! If you're still around Tina, I'd be curious to know if you ended up finding a doctor here in Los Angeles. I am beginning the search...again, as it has turned out. I'm the cautionary tale that had too subtle a correction, and now they've come out again. They aren't nearly as bad as they originally were (I was a severe case), but I'm still not happy with them. I honestly wish they were overcorrected instead of facing doing it again. I really regret not putting more effort into the research & consult stage, but I was 18 and from a fairly rural area the first time around. I think the difficulty involved in getting a great result with this surgery is really underestimated because there's such a visible "improvement".
If anyone is still around here and interested, I'll be meeting with 3 surgeons in Los Angeles and 1 more (+1 already done) in Phoenix in the next few weeks. I've been looking at tons of pictures online prior to setting up the consults, and it amazes me how many hack jobs there are, especially from docs who specialize in body (not facial) procedures. Remember this is often what they consider their best work being showcased online, so if it's at all mediocre, don't bother!
