I’m 54 years of age and a widower since June 2008. After the death of my husband I didn’t like what I saw in the mirror anymore – his passing had taken years off my face. I’ve always tried to live by the motive “when one thing ends something else begins,” and so I chose to begin my life again with a brand new face, hence the beginning of my journey through plastic surgery.
My research stopped with Dr. Ross Clevens – I was unable to find any negative remarks about the doctor or his staff. My initial consultation with Tammy was a refreshing surprise. I’ll admit I was a bit nervous, but Tammy comforted me when necessary and explained the procedures I was interested in simply and understandably. I knew from my first visit with Dr. Clevens and his staff that I was in good hands. And as time went on, Dr. Clevens’ knowledge and warm, sincere personality convinced me I was doing the right thing.
Beginning with the greeting from the front desk staff, the before and after pictures with Janny, Nurse Lisa’s positive and encouraging words throughout my recovery, to Christina’s gentle, pampering touch, I was treated like family. Dr. Clevens’ entire staff has made me feel special – from their warm hugs hello to their warm hugs goodbye. You just don’t expect this kind of experience or feeling from a doctor visit.
I was surprised I had hardly any post-operative pain and minimal scarring, considering I just had a face lift, upper and lower eyelid blepharoplasty, CO2 laser, transbleph browplasty and live fill to my upper lip. Only a true experienced doctor with a very steady hand could give these results. It is amazing what a remarkable talent God has blessed Dr. Clevens with.
I’m truly grateful I stopped worrying about what I didn’t like and chose to have the surgery. Otherwise I would have missed out on the opportunity to get to know some wonderful people who have been important to me throughout this journey. Life changes when it wants to, and often in the most unexpected ways.
A sincere thank you to Dr. Ross Clevens and his staff for making my plastic surgery experience a success.
