Patient Transformation - Marla
Marla decided it was time for a change. She worked in field with younger people and she wanted her features to match how young she felt inside. She said, “I was feeling like I was looking older and tired but that just wasn’t the case. I had seen changes coming to how I looked and I just wanted something different. I wanted to look like a refreshed and more youthful me!” So, Marla decided it was time for a facelift.
Marla began researching cosmetic and plastic surgeons in Tulsa and Oklahoma City online and talking to friends. She learned about the highest standards of care and she knew she wanted the safety and personal attention that came with an ambulatory surgical facility like the one at Tulsa Surgical Arts. As she began to check out Dr. Cuzalina online, she knew she wanted a consultation with him for her procedure.
“My decision was made after having an informed consultation with Dr. Cuzalina and seeing the before and after photos I was shown. Dr. Cuzalina was able to show me a computer imaging program that was visually helpful in showing me what my end results would be like.” And, that was how Marla chose to do a facelift and eyelid lift. “Dr. Cuzalina was very easy to talk with and he was a good listener, asking me what changes I was looking for. He gave me direction on how things would look and I didn’t feel rushed."
So Marla informed Tulsa Surgical Arts that she was ready to have her facelift and eyelid lift with Dr. Cuzalina.
Marla had complete confidence in Dr. Cuzalina and the team at Tulsa Surgical Arts as she proceeded to her surgery. She also felt like the setting put her at ease. “My first impression of Tulsa Surgical Arts was that I felt very comfortable there. I was greeted by beautiful, professional women that made me feel at home. It was not a sterile-feeling environment like most doctors’ offices. Going into surgery, this just felt right for me!”
Marla had her facelift and eyelid lift from Dr. Cuzalina that day. Following the surgery, she stayed in one of the guest suites at Tulsa Surgical Arts, with a nurse caring for her in the early hours of recovery after her surgery.
“There wasn’t any nervousness and there was no anxiety,” Marla said. “I’d never done anything like that before but they took great care of me. Overall, my experience would be absolutely rated a 10 on all levels!”
A few years following her surgery, Marla moved to San Antonio but her story with Tulsa Surgical Arts didn‘t end there or with her facelift and eyelid lift.
Following my facelift, I got so many compliments,” Marla said. “People said it took twenty years off my face.” She told many friends over the years about the excellent treatment she had received at Tulsa Surgical Arts and Dr. Cuzalina‘s work showed in the results for Marla.
Most before and after stories end there. But, after five years, Marla was living in San Antonio when she was motivated to make one last change in her appearance: a rhinoplasty or cosmetic surgery on the nose. Instead of seeking out a cosmetic surgeon in San Antonio or going to nearby medical powerhouse city, Houston, Marla chose to return to Tulsa Surgical Arts. “Because of my prior results,” Marla said, “I wouldn’t consider another surgeon other than Dr. Cuzalina.”
Marla had another successful procedure with her rhinoplasty and a mini-facelift to touch up her previous facelift from five years earlier. “These procedures have literally changed my life in a very positive way,” Marla said, happily. “if you want to look and feel younger,” she advises others, “do this for you!”
