My review of Dr. Randal Haworth is unsolicited. As a patient and a biomedical scientist, my opinion is that Dr. Haworth’s pre-op, surgery, follow up as well as outcome of the upper and medial (corner) lip lifts are of the highest quality. What caused me to get this surgery? The region of my nose to upper lip midface area was flat and had an extreme distance between the nose and upper lip. I looked angry or sad all the time when I wasn’t smiling. The reasons for my highest regard for Dr. Haworth’s work are the following.
First, it was a revision of a lip lift I had 20 years prior. Ten years after my first lip lift the distance had returned so I went to another plastic surgeon that refused to perform lip lifts and he talked me into having autologous fat implant into my lips to balance the distance. Since that fat implant, a further increased distance developed between my nose and upper lip and the area was very flat with no definition/philtrum. Previous scar tissue is just one reason revision surgery can be more difficult. After several consultations with other plastic surgeons to correct these issues, I researched how Dr. Haworth did his lip lifts and found that he was the only plastic surgeon who secured the lip lift in such as way that it tends to last longer. Therefore, I chose Dr. Haworth.
Second, Dr. Haworth provides such a wonderful outcome that people are really confused when I say that I am 68 years old because most people think I am much younger. After Dr. Haworth’s surgery, my lips and the balance of my midface region to the rest of my face is even better than when I was much younger! He even gave my upper lip a philtrum again which takes away the flat appearance.
Third, Dr. Haworth, the anesthesiologist and their staff provide spectacular pre- and post-op preparation and follow-up care. I never felt rushed when I had questions or during an appointment. I have had numerous surgeries for other reasons and I know this type of care is outstanding. I did complete all of Dr. Haworth’s suggested follow up visits, home care, and upper lip exercises which I am sure helped with healing and the outcome as well. I highly recommend Dr. Haworth’s advice as well as attention to details, artistry, and technical skills that provide me with a natural, beautiful outcome. One year post surgery, I look pleasant, not angry.
Thank you Dr. Haworth and staff!
