Dr. Suarez gave me a thread lift with only a local anesthetic and anti-anxiety medication. During the consultation I told her that I had cheek implants and asked if that would be a problem. She assured my that it wouldn't.
Dr. Suarez had GREAT difficulty inserting the threads. They use a crochet hook-type of tool and she attempted numerous time to place the hooks down my face to implant the threads. She couldn't figure out what the problem was. As it turned out, she had no memory of my having told her that I had cheek implants. They obviously were obstructing the pathway.
After much shoving and jabbing which caused me extreme pain, Dr. Suarez finally inserted the threads. My entire face blew up like a basketball in the following days. It took an entire 6 weeks before all the swelling and bruising went down and this was supposed to be a no downtime procedure.
Once the swelling was gone, the jowls were back. At that time, Dr. Suarez said that she would do a touch-up procedure gratis. A week later, when I attempted to make an appointment, Dr. Suarez would not return my calls or answer my emails.
