Last May I had to have a tumor removed from my foot. It left me bedridden for 3 months. In that 3 months I put on about 50lbs. When it healed and I returned to running, the 50lbs came off. The one thing about being over 45 is that your skin doesn’t snap back like it did when you are 20. My face at this point seemed to sag because of all the weight loss. I needed a face lift. A very good friend of mine recommended Dr Cary Canoun, a very well know plastic surgeon.

My first visit with Dr Canoun went well. He was very personable and was kind and understanding of my situation. He showed me many before and after pictures of his work. I can honestly say he is a artist at what he does. I set up the date and had the face lift, eyebrow lift and he added in some awesome cheek bones. My recovery was around 14 days. During that time he had given me his cell number just in case I had a problem or other questions.

It has now been about 6 weeks post surgery and I look like I did when I was 30. All my friends think my face looks great because of the weight loss not because I had work done on it. It is amazing to see that you can have plastic surgery and look natural after and not all stretched out and funny looking. I would recommend Dr Canoun to anyone looking for a natural look after plastic surgery. Because honestly do you really want your friends to know you had work done? Or do you want to have them tell you that you look amazing and not know why?

I saw Dr Canoun in June for breast augmentation and chose Walnut Creek quite honestly because the hospital fees are much lower than SF and that savings gets passed on to me.  I have found him to be personable and a professional at what he does.  I am very happy with the results and all of the staff in his office and at the surgery center.  It was a smooth and easy process and I would recommend him to anyone else looking for cosmetic surgery.  After discussing the options, pros and cons of each type of implant, I chose to have saline implants under the muscle and everything worked out great.

I am a pretty active person and so it has taken me the full 6 weeks to be back to all of the things I like to do but I knew that beforehand and it was expected.  I am back to being a massage therapist, riding horses and keeping up a regular yoga practice.
