Dear Dr. Jacobs,
Thank you for your skillful work!
There is now congruency between the strength of my vitality and how I look. Over the last 2 years I've become more aware that my rapidly aging face was impacting some of my decisions. The scope of those self imposed limitations didn't reveal itself until a few weeks after surgery when I began to look more like the person I felt, and that I now had choices about how outwardly engaged I wanted to be and what I wanted to do. While "some" in this culture may be of the opinion that this is a superficial concern and one ought to age "gracefully" I believe that if how we look undermines ones confidence especially in a culture of ageism, it's not to be ignored. Life is short and can be ever so full.... While looking and feeling good!! So, once again I'm very grateful for your "artistry" and helping me to age "gracefully" my way.... May you and yours have a bountiful new year.
