I was tired of getting mad with my neck. I just turned 66, and over the years, I’d accepted the change that comes with simply surviving: losing skin elasticity and hormones. I’d lost my jawline, my eyes had craters under them, and I looked tired all the time. I’d tried electro stem facials and all the tiny fixes – the injections and fillers, but nothing seemed to help for long. Because I grew up in LA, I’ve been surrounded by face lifts all my life. And that’s why I was terrified at the prospect of surgery; I’d seen far too many “plastic surgery victims.” So when I met with Richard Zoumalan, I gave him a picture of me when I was 42, and I said, “That’s what I want. Is that possible?” And he said, “Yes!” He explained what he’d do, and how he would do it. I had surgery less than a month ago, and amazingly, I look almost exactly like me, only about 25 years younger. I got what I wanted. I cannot recommend Richard highly enough. Besides being a kind, compassionate person, an amazing surgeon, he’s also an artist. His office is filed with his art work. His darling brother Christopher Zoumalan did my eyes, and they look great! Between the two of them, you can’t ask for a better team – they’re young, energetic and trained to do the newest procedures. My sister calls them the “Hot Docs.” Oh, the only downside to this? My baby sister, who is 14 years younger than I am, said, “I don’t think I like your looking younger than I do!” Oh, well… ;^))
