In March, Palm Beach Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery ran a promotion for International Women's Day - a contest in which the prize was a mini RHA® makeover for a lucky lady. To qualify, someone else had to nominate the woman and tell Palm Beach Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery why she deserved to win. Lidia A’s dear friend Joy T. nominated her, submitting a compelling letter about her life story. After we read it, we realized Lidia was the perfect choice to be our contest winner.
About Lidia A., Winner of Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery’s International Women’s Day Contest
Lidia was born and raised in Poland and moved with her family to Canada when she was in her early teen years to flee the communist regime. Although it was a big adjustment, she grew up as a regular teenager in her adopted country of Canada, feeling fortunate to live there and be part of a wonderful family. When Lidia was in her late-20s, she married her husband, and the two of them moved from Montreal to the United States. The couple traveled all over the country, living in places like Chicago and Minneapolis before relocating back to Montreal, where they had two beautiful children.
Throughout her career, Lidia worked as a corporate and commercial flight attendant, which allowed her to travel in what she describes as a “beautiful, exciting job.” However, seven years ago, she decided to move the family to Florida, take some time off, and let her children adjust and thrive in The Sunshine State.
Why RHA® at Palm Beach Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery?
In December 2020, Lidia turned fifty. “I just kind of stopped, looked at myself in the mirror, and asked, ‘Oh my goodness, what is happening here?’” she explains. “It was a huge blessing when my friend nominated me for Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery’s International Women’s Day promotion. The next thing I knew, I found myself in Dr. Barr’s office for an amazing, exciting opportunity.”
She met with Carla Pisani, Patient Counselor, and Candy Cane, RNSA, who, according to Lidia, “created a masterpiece.” “First, Carla and Candy listened to my concerns about droopiness on my cheeks and my lips. Gravity kind of takes over, and you find yourself very dull and uneven. I wasn’t liking what I was seeing and was experiencing a kind of midlife crisis,” Lidia notes. “I explained it all to Carla and Candy, and they just took over and made suggestions, while I let them make me look more youthful. Because at the end of the day, that’s what we were looking for - a more youthful and refreshed appearance. At Palm Beach Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery, they don’t try to make you look like something you’re not. It was just to emphasize and bring back a bit of that plumpness and youthfulness. We achieved that goal one-hundred percent.”
What Makes RHA® Different at Palm Beach Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery?
RHA® is a relatively new product that employs the most recent advancements in hyaluronic acid fillers. Our skin produces hyaluronic acid on its own, but our skin tends to make less and less of it as we age. RHA® was tailored to mimic the function of your natural hyaluronic acid as closely as possible by providing dynamic lift, fill, and smoothness to your skin.
What sets RHA® apart from other hyaluronic acid fillers is its mobile nature. It shifts with your skin as you speak, move, and express emotion. Its goal? To provide the results you want in the most natural-looking way possible.
Notably, RHA® is the first hyaluronic acid procedure to receive full FDA approval to treat dynamic wrinkles. If you’re looking for a final result that restores youth to your face without making it known that you’ve had work done, RHA® could likely be the treatment for you, as it was for Lidia.
She describes the RHA® process as taking about three hours. “Carla, Candy, and I spent a little bit of time talking because these are injectables. You have to get a little bit numb, too, just to ease the discomfort a little bit, but it's not extraordinarily painful. It's nothing different from getting BOTOX®. And I'm sure a lot of people have done that. I would say that the whole process maybe took about three hours. It was quick but not rushed in any way, shape, or form. Once it was done, I went home. There was a little bit of swelling, which is normal. However, within a day, everything started to settle. It took about a good week-and-a-half for the swelling to dissipate, but I had no issues whatsoever. I looked great. When I went back for a follow-up appointment, everything looked fantastic. No touches needed to be done. I’m extremely pleased with my RHA® procedure and the entire staff at Palm Beach Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery.”
