I’m a 66 years mature man. My generation never gave facial plastic surgery a thought until the last few years. That’s right, things have changed and as a result these types of procedures are more readily accepted by all men. Dr. Buckingham runs a very professional and streamlined administrative operation. That’s one thing that many Docs suck at. But more importantly, he is the penultimate sculptor of the face. When one finds a consummate professional such as Dr.B who immerses himself in the study of the art of the face and becomes the most accomplished and masterful surgeon on the planet, you just hire him. He far exceeded my expectations.
An RN friend who's worked with plastic surgeons and has years of experience in skin reconstruction recommended Dr. Buckingham. From my very first appointment, Dr Buckingham and his staff were fantastic. My neck lift went very well. I'm still in recovery phase but feel great. Tightness, swelling and bruising as expected, nothing sunglasses a scarf can't deal with though. An amazing part of my experience was a beautiful bouquet of flowers with well wishes from Dr Buckingham and his staff was delivered to my home the day after my surgery, thank you! I really couldn't be happier with my decision to have Dr. Buckingham perform my neck lift.
I have to say I was very nervous about having the procedures that Dr. Buckingham had recommended in my initial consultation, but after looking at many of the before and after photos from other patients online, I decided to go forward and have them done. It has been a little over three months, and I have to say the results have been pretty amazing. My biggest concern was that the procedures I had done would be natural looking and they are!
When looking for a doctor to do these procedures. I wanted somebody who was board certified and who had a good reputation. I had been to Dr. Buckingham's office before for Botox. Having had that experience I inquired to see if I could have a consultation with him. It was very thorough and I felt, very much at ease. I had already done my own homework and I pretty much have decided that I was going to do it, but initially when we set it up, I was going to do it in January. I was so sure that he was going to just do a great job that I changed it to October. I actually did it three months earlier than I planned. It was a lot bigger deal than I thought it was going to be. I had quite a bit of swelling and it wasn't pain necessarily from the incisions but the swelling was what caused my pain. I think that I had the swelling more severe than most people do, or I'm just a baby. It was a lot bigger deal in the recovery end than I had expected. When I got online I found out that everything I was going through was normal. The office was really nice and they gave me some good direction about how to keep the swelling down. I took three weeks off. When I came back nobody said, "Oh, did you have a face lift?" Everyone who said anything at all said, "Oh, do you have a new hairdo?" I love my results, he’s definitely the best!
Dr. Buckingham provides plenty of information in his website. I like the fact that he specializes on the neck and above. I had a Laser Treatment for broken capillaries and veins on my face, on July 3rd. I also had a Chin Augmentation on the same day. He was all very up front as far as what the procedures or what the prices were. This is my third follow-up visit since the procedures. It is just going according to plan. I'm very satisfied.
On February 13th I had a Revision Rhinoplasty. I wasn't happy with my result the first time. I'm a lot older now but I just felt more confident so I wasn't nervous, and then, of course, there was better staff now too, like the facility, the nurses were a lot more competent, and I liked the facility better. The recovery was less. I'd say about three weeks less. The nose now is proportionate to my face and it's not too drastic of a change. It was a great job.
I had a septoplasty and a rhinoplasty done with Dr. Buckingham about three months ago. I initially had the intention to interview several surgeons before settling with one, but after visiting Dr. Buckingham’s office first and meeting him personally and his staff, I was convinced right off the bat. He has a special software system that can show me a computer-generated image of what my results would look like after my surgery. I would describe Dr. Buckingham as a very thorough and well informed doctor. He goes the distance when it comes to ensuring patient comfort. He even sent flowers to my house after my surgery, which is something totally unexpected from a doctor. He even personally called me the day after my surgery to see how I was feeling. He is an overall, well-rounded doctor. I am able to breathe better now. I know that my breathing has yet to improve more, but it’s still only three months since the surgery. After the surgery, I feel more confident now; I can pull back my hair from my face because I have nothing to hide now. I feel like I look good and it’s all thanks to Dr. Buckingham.
I saw Dr. Buckingham for a lower facelift and Necklift on May 11th. I found his office online. Dr.
Buckingham is an excellent surgeon. Originally, I came to his office because I didn’t like the way
my neck looked. So far, I’m really happy with my results. I got exactly what I asked for. There
was some pain during the recovery, but nothing Dr. Buckingham didn’t warn me about. The
facelift and Necklift was totally worth it, though. The office is so helpful, I will be recommending Dr. Buckingham to others.
I had a forehead lift and facelift with Dr. Buckingham. He did my procedure on November 19th. I really thought that when I looked in the mirror in the mornings, I had such a sad looking face. I was inspired by the before/after photos on Dr. Buckingham’s website. I had been thinking about these procedures for over 10 years, but finally I went ahead and did it. I am now thrilled to be able to wake up in the morning and see myself be a happy person again. I don’t have the droopy neck anymore and look much younger. My procedures were also affordable.
The bottom line is that I wanted to look more youthful, but was unsure what else to do on my own. Word of mouth sent me to Dr. Buckingham’s office. Everyone made me feel comfortable from the start, and Dr. Buckingham was a gracious doctor. He explained my options and we decided a facelift was right for me. My surgery was on February 2nd. My facelift went so smooth and my recovery was great. I could not have done it without the support of Dr. Buckingham and his staff. Even in the hospital, I felt like I was really in good hands. I know that anyone who goes to Dr. Buckingham will be satisfied with the treatment they receive, and I will certainly go back in the future.
