I'm a 55-year-old man and have always hated my jaw & neckline but did not want to have an invasive surgical procedure. I was in the Winter Park location about 9 months ago to get some Botox and while I was waiting I began reading up on the Ultherapy procedure. The procedure was definitely something that interested me being it was non-invasive. I inquired about the procedure through Christopher J Thornburgh, Managing Director, and he walked me through the basics and cost of the procedure before handing over to the expert that would do the procedure. She explained all the details from recovery time, comfort level, results and approximately time before you see results. They were running a special on the procedure that was about to end and I decided that this was the best opportunity. Due to my work schedule, I wasn't able to have the procedure for about 2 months but I finally freed up some time and came back in late Summer. I arrived at about 10:00 and went right into the procedure room. I felt very comfortable from the beginning because each portion of the procedure was explained so I knew what was coming next. I have to be honest that I was nervous because I had read a lot of information on the procedure and the mixed reviews on the pain. I'm not going to lie and say it doesn't come with some discomfort but once you begin and know what to expect, then it's more tolerable. The actual procedure took about an hour and overall my face just felt like I had been out in the sun all day. There isn't really a recovery period so you can go back to your normal routine. I did have a heavy acne breakout the week after the procedure but I think that was from a combination of sources not related to the procedure. Now for the results........You need to understand that this isn't a procedure that gives you instant gratification but happens over a slow timeframe because of the new collagen growth. It's been about 6 months since my procedure and I really began noticing the changes at about 3 months. I knew that the changes were dramatic when I was on a business trip and going through TSA and the agent saying "This doesn't even look like you" referencing my driver's license. I never look at my DL because I hate that photo but when I looked at it again, I realized that this procedure was worth all the money and minor discomfort!!
I've been using filler for the past 10 years and typically have used Juvederm to fill my deep laugh lines and cheeks. I came into the office about a year ago and inquired about other options. I had my initial consultation with Christopher Thornburgh and we discussed Radiesse / Botox as an alternative to Juvederm. I really liked the idea that the Radiesse had a track record of lasting longer than some of the other fillers. I then meet with Dr. Thomas and we agreed that this was the best procedure for my needs. Overall I was in the chair for about 30 minutes and other than a little discomfort, it was painless. I had some slight bruising over the next few days but that went away quickly and within less than a week there was no trace of the procedure. I knew this was the right procedure about a month later when one of my friends just kept staring at me and finally ask me if I had some work done. That's what I love about this procedure. It looks natural without looking like you've had work done!! Dr.Thomas is very approachable and makes you feel comfortable and at ease during the procedure. I'm coming back at the end of the month for a yearly refresh!!
At the beginning I thought it was pricey; I had my doubts , the results were amazing. Dr. Thomas skills and caring made her very special. She is a beautiful person to deal with and her nurse Maite is wonderful. Mister Chirs showed me all the options , I had to pay for the lipo , I was getting done. Thank you all , for a great job and final result. I will recommend this team to everyone.
Dr Thomas is the best. Her bedside manner is awesome her staff if understanding . I had my procedure done and couldn't be more happier. As soon as I get the strength will be sharing my experience and journey online with before and after pics. They are caring even called me hours after surgery just to make sure I was comfortable. . Will def be returning to get other things done. Dr Thomas and her staff are A+ with their patients
I couldn't be happier.
After 2 weeks of surgery I am feeling great about my new body. I had abdomen, back lipo and a scar revision results are amazing.
Dr Thomas was very professional, caring, attentive and sweet at every single visit/appointment she made herself available to me 24/7 after surgery for any concern or emergency.
I didn't have to call but it gave me peace of mind that she was available.
Maite (nurse) is friendly, knowledgeable and very quick to answer any question or concerns, a pleasure to be around.
Tiffany and Jazmine (front office staff) make you feel welcome they were both sweet, attentive, professionals and quick to reply back when I left messages about prescriptions or questions for the nurse.
Last but not least I want to thanks Chris for taking his time patiently with me answering all my financial questions.
I highly recommend New Image

Thanks Dr Thomas and her amazing Staff
