“Dr. Scheiner is wonderful, like an artist creating a painting.”
Cindy is a patient who has traveled from Ohio to see Dr. Scheiner three times, and she’s already planning another trip back for next year! The first time she visited was back in 2013. She’d previously had a face lift but was unhappy with the festoons that had appeared under her eyes, and had discussed the idea of having a second surgery with her physician husband. She remembers that one day he was watching television and called for her to come see what he was watching. It was the episode of The Doctors in which Dr. Scheiner talked about his festoon procedure. Within weeks she had made reservations to fly to Tampa.
Dr. Scheiner recommended that Cindy have a procedure that would address issues with her eyelids and festoons. She remembers the procedures as having been painless, but also recalls the shock she felt when she first looked in the mirror. “Not much can prepare you for that sight,” she said, “but I followed my instructions and it got a little better every day.” Cindy doesn’t remember exactly how long it took for her to feel that she had completely recovered, but says that it was probably a few months. What she clearly remembers is that her skin felt like a newborn baby’s, with no sun spots. Most importantly, her festoons were completely gone. She calls the results “amazing,” and remembers that the compliments started rolling in — and still are.
Asked about why she was willing to travel so far, Cindy says it is all about the care she received and Dr. Scheiner’s skill.
“Dr. Scheiner is wonderful, like an artist creating a painting. His attention to detail is impressive and his staff is very professional, kind and thoughtful. It feels like visiting family whenever I walk in. My second visit was in December, 2015, when I scheduled a full face Reset® procedure to tighten my face and remove sun damage. I was prepared for the recovery and again followed the instructions and returned home two weeks later. I think it takes a few months to see the full effects, but it’s worth it.”
Cindy’s most recent visit to Dr. Scheiner was just a few weeks ago, when she returned to Tampa to have Dr. Scheiner administer some Botox® and fillers. She says, “I’ve had Botox before so I knew what to expect, but the filler was a whole new thing. Dr. Scheiner administered a dental block and the rest was painless. I did have a little bruising and swelling, but nothing significant — all I needed were some ice packs. I also had my hands, neck, and chest treated with BroadBand Light treatments to get rid of sun damage. It’s been seven days, and although I still have a little bruising from the injections, the overall effect is amazing. It’s like having a liquid face lift!”
Cindy says that anybody considering a face lift should investigate Botox® and fillers. “I had a surgical face lift around 12 years ago, and it was both painful and expensive. If I had to do it over again, hands down I would choose the filler and Botox. I’ll be visiting Dr. Scheiner next year for a few touch ups.”
One of the reasons that Cindy says it is worth it for her to make the trip to Tampa is the support provided by Dr. Scheiner’s office staff. “Toni helped me with all my hotel reservations, drivers, cabs and more. She gave me a comprehensive list of the supplies that I would need for each recovery, and arranged for after-surgery nursing care. She answered all of my questions and made my travels seamless. It is truly a pleasure visiting their office. I thank them every time I look in the mirror, and so does my husband!
