I would like to tell you my story…
2 years ago I opted to have a face and neck lift done by a renowned Plastic Surgeon in Nashville. He however, was not a facial Plastic Surgeon. The recovery from this was difficult with scaring left behind my ears that stayed red for months and months.I was bruised on my face and neck in a array of colors. I could not put my hair up, but had to leave it down even in the hot humid summer.
This doctor did a neck lift at the same time. My neck looked wonderful, but under the chin it was not very tight. Within a year, the folds around my mouth were just as severe as they had been before my surgery. I was so disappointed as this surgery took months to recover from, and in the end I looked almost the same age as when I had done the surgery, and I was out $12,000.
I was still determined to make the change in my appearance that I wanted to make. So, I did my research this time, much more extensively…and I decided to not look for a Plastic Surgeon, but for a specialist. And this is what I got when I met Dr. Clymer. Upon our first meeting , I took my daughter with me as we interviewed 3 other surgeons, all Facial Surgeons in the area. Dr. Clymer was the last one we met with. I had read his reviews about the staff and himself, and looked at all the pictures on line.
They were impressive. But what I was looking for was confidence. I was looking this time for someone that listened to me, looked at me, and could see what I use to be, how that slipped away, and how he could turn back the hand of time. Not someone who said what they thought I wanted to hear. I wanted a Master. When he came into the room, the first thing he said to me was about the scarring behind my ears.
He was actually irritated. He said that he doesn’t understand why they still teach Surgeons to operate this way today, and how it doesn’t need to be done like that. The scarring was very, very obvious…anyone standing next to me would know I had a facelift. Embarrassing…. he said he could ‘lift’ those scars and put them right into the hairline with no hair being shaved even.He said he could make them disappear. He felt my neck needed to be tightened more, which I wasn’t even that worried about as I was much more focused on my droopy looking mouth and jawline which looked as if I had never had a previous surgery even done. He took his time with me and really looked at me. I felt that I had lost my beauty, and now just looked old, and tired.
I am 57 years old by the way. His whole countenance radiated success….as was his office, staff, right down to the car he drove ( which I saw because he pulled up next to me). I wasn’t looking for a up and coming, or a struggling surgeon, or one that does more breasts then faces…I wanted a Master that had been doing women’s faces, turning back the clock, and re-creating their natural beauty of what they once were…all the while having no one even remotely suspect they had done so.
I had paid the price once, and was not about to make that error again.I booked the surgery. When it came time for the operation, the nurse who was prepping me, looked into my eyes and said, “I am going to tell you….this is the best man you could have ever chosen. He is a genius at what he does. And when I can do this, I will be using him".
Dr. Clymer made sure I slept well, which I wasn’t at first, and he took care of that the first week. I had a bit of pain recovering, but nothing like my previous experience. He took care of that as well. I had very little bruising and swelling. Each week I waiting with bated breath to see what the results would be. I am now 6 months after my operation.
In all honestly I can now look in the mirror, and not think…Ugh….you look tired, old and worn out. I like how I look. I feel attractive and pretty again. And in all honesty, I have to say Dr. Clymer wiped away between 10-15 years off of my face. My neck is flawless, tight and firm. I have no lines around my mouth at all.
And the ‘ jowl droop’ has completely disappeared all together. My hair is continually up and I have perfect skin behind my ears without a single scar in sight. The people I associate with tell me now how I glow, and I look so good. And not one has made any comment as to if I have had anything done.
I do not look like I have had a face lift… but I look like one day I woke up and decided to be 43 again. This is what I can say to you that are contemplating this type of surgery... there are many, many Plastic Surgeons. But there are very few Masters of their trade. This man works in sheer excellence. He exceeds his peers. I am a Doctor's wife…I have not only heard the stories, but I have lived the story.
If you are ready to bring the balance and harmony between what you feel inside to how you look on the outside…then I can now tell you… Dr. Clymer will make that happen for you, just as he did for me. May you be blessed upon your journey.
