I am 60 years young and somewhere between the ages of 52-59 my neck started looking like a turkey neck. The Crip Keeper! I had lost some weight but gravity was really doing a number on my face and neck (so much crapey skin!). I had met Dr. Richard Montilla when he did an eyebrow lift as part of a “drooping eyelid” situation that my eye doctor prescribed and my insurance covered it because it effects your vision. My eyebrows were the problem however; my eyes almost looked closed. So both surgeons worked together (I cannot remember the eye surgeons name sorry) and my eyes/brows came out great. My eyebrows were back on the bone where they were supposed to be. I remember thinking if ever I was going to have any surgery done on my body I would call Dr. Montilla. His bedside manner is great. He is intelligent, honest and extremely patient with us nervous types! So last March – in the middle of the longest nurses strike in history, at St Vincent’s Hospital, I went to consult with Dr Montilla and decided I wanted only a neck lift – no face lift – no nose job, just get rid of this turkey neck! He charged me a very reasonable price and we scheduled surgery. Of course I was a wreck and he and his office staff had to console me on several occasions (always returned my calls) – they are fabulous and so caring – And then the surgery. The man is a perfectionist so if he tells you four hours expect six hours of surgery…and for myself, he not only did a fabulous job on my neck he ended up giving me a half of face lift to get those jowls back up, and he tightened my earlobes all at no extra charge. He did it because to him, you are like a piece of artwork he is working on, it has to be perfect! His surgical team at St Vincent’s is outstanding (sorry I cannot say same about St. Vincent hospital staff). I cannot express with words the phenomenal job he did on my face and neck. The stitches are undetectable, and I look fifteen years younger! I feel great. I have made some wonderful friends during this process and I would recommend him to ANYONE who is considering cosmetic surgery. He is a miracle worker! Look at my pictures and see for yourself!
