Some women proudly reveal their age just to see jaws drop and hear amazement. I always wondered how these women did it. I bet there was someone else involved and that someone is a board-certified surgeon. Unfortunately, fear of looking fake and being stigmatized stops many women from having a chance to reverse the effects of aging. Environmental factors, yo-yo dieting and hormone imbalance take their toll on our bodies, but with a help of the right cosmetic surgeon it can be reversed. As the common saying goes, “a good cosmetic surgeon is a girl’s best friend.” Indeed, we notice only plastic surgery gone wrong, but when someone looks good beyond his or her age we “blame” the genes. When a friend looks rested and revived after an alleged vacation, know, that they finally found the above mentioned best friend.
I have always liked the way I looked never wanting to change my appearance (despite all that had been said about my proud Romanesque nose). So when I noticed early signs of aging I decided to take action. After all, my alpha type personality and exceptional ability to multitask didn’t have to appear on my face as frown lines! I met the wizard of eternal youth, Dr. Konstantin Vasyukevich, who chose this specialty as the “most demanding, the most challenging, and the most rewarding plastic surgery specialty.” A Doctor of Medicine with advanced studies degrees from Mount Sinai and Montefiore Medical Centers in Head and Neck Surgery and Facial Plastic Surgery, double board-certified specialist, Dr. Konstantin is highly qualified to provide the latest in cosmetic treatment to achieve the best results. With over 1000 successful face-lifts performed, Dr. Konstantin has demonstrated his artistry and expertise, and it hasn’t gone unnoticed. Good credentials are very important because you trust your face to him! Located in the heart of the Upper East Side, with the help of the most helpful and welcoming staff he carefully evaluates each and every patient, taking time to give detailed explanations. His office is very chic and at the same time cozy. I didn’t even feel nervous, as I usually do before seeing a doctor. Every detail is thought through.
Radiant Life magazine named him The Best Up & Coming New York Facial Plastic Surgeon, he has earned several Best Doctor and Patient’s Choice accolades, as well as many other honors and awards. In his own words, facial cosmetic surgery has changed people’s lives by erasing 10-15 years and giving back their confidence. A good specialist is trustworthy and there is a special doctor-patient bond that is as important as a surgeon’s professional expertise. His patients call him Dr. Konstantin. I instinctively resisted all the comments about how “the longer you wait, the better it is” and “you are way too young to see a cosmetic surgeon.” It turns out that there is such thing as “point of no return.” Dr. Konstantin explained that if patients wait too long to see a specialist some signs of aging could be irreversible. There is just too much damage. In my case there were good options like injectable and fillers, but down the road I may be eligible for more surgical procedures. It’s important to know that fillers don’t substitute a facelift and vice versa. Depending on the stage of aging and individual complexion, the doctor will decide what is more appropriate. So there goes another myth.
Boy, did people think I had a great vacation! Or was it the perfect new hairdo that made me look so refreshed? I had to lie that I found a new colorist to keep my little secret.
