"Thank you so much, Dr. Mandal, for your perfectionism and aesthetic vision. I’m most impressed with all you’ve done for me."
In spring, I received the “WhisperLift” facial rejuvenation procedure, performed by Dr. Mandal. It has been three months, and I am extremely pleased with the outcome. I realized I will never be 23 or 35 again, but how I look now compared to how I looked previous to the procedure is a vast improvement. Before the WhisperLift, I dreaded looking at the tired looking woman in the mirror; it was depressing. I no longer dread the mirror because I see a brighter spirit looking back. Thank you so much, Dr. Mandal, for your perfectionism and aesthetic vision. I’m most impressed with all you’ve done for me.

"I had to take a moment to let you know how happy I am with my WhisperLift. I had a date with a man considerably younger than me. He couldn’t believe how young I looked."
Dear Dr. Mandal, I had to take a moment to let you know how happy I am with my WhisperLift. I had a date with a man considerably younger than me. He couldn’t believe how young I looked. I just smiled, but, on the inside, I was doing cart wheels. If anyone out there is thinking about having a WhisperLift, make an appointment for a consultation. Dr. Mandal, while most professional, treated me as if I were her only patient. She answered all of my questions and was so very patient with all of my concerns. I also want to compliment her staff. They are very friendly, always cheerful and very accommodating.

"So I thank you for exercising your magic and your expertise on me. Please know that I would highly recommend you to anyone, gal or guy, who would like to push back at the aging process."
It is not in my nature to write testimonials. This is, in fact, my first. The situation, however, dictates that I put some thoughts to paper. The incredible and wonderful results of your surgery on my upper and lower eyelids is deserving of the highest praise. I, being the first judge of your handiwork, am pleased beyond belief. The kicker, though, is a comment from a close relative who is not aware that I had the procedures done. Upon seeing me just 3 1/2 weeks after the second procedure, she said “your weight loss program is doing wonders cause it’s taking years off your appearance.” Nuff said! So I thank you for exercising your magic and your expertise on me. Please know that I would highly recommend you to anyone, gal or guy, who would like to push back at the aging process.

"I went back to work after 10 days. All I heard from my fellow co-workers were ‘You look so rested and your skin looks so great!’ No one ever mentioned that I must have had surgery. They just kept looking at me and saying ‘you look great!"
I am a middle-aged woman entering into a new career that is very youth-oriented. Though my body was still in great shape, what I saw in the mirror did not fit my image of myself. I am trained in the medical field, and have worked for one of the most well known plastic surgeons in Palm Beach County, as well as in a practice of 6 other plastic surgeons. I was never impressed by the outcomes of the facelifts that I had seen. To me it was too obvious that the person had had surgery on their face. Though I craved for my former youthful face, I thought that I would rather stay with what nature gave me rather than end up with that “face-lift” stretched look. I saw Dr. Anita Mandal’s ad in a magazine one evening and was immediately taken with the fact that (a) she concentrated her practice on the head and neck, (b) she was a woman and (c) she could perform a surgical procedure under local anesthesia. My consultation with Dr. Mandal was truly an exceptional experience. She spent over an hour with me, answering every question I had, informing me of every aspect of the WhisperLift which was the procedure that I was interested in. I was so impressed by her as well as the untouched photos, that I booked the procedure that same day for the following week (I also booked the procedure to remove the hooding around my eyes). To give you an idea of the outcome: I went back to work after 10 days. All I heard from my fellow co-workers were “You look so rested and your skin looks so great!” No one ever mentioned that I must have had surgery. They just kept looking at me and saying “you look great!” When I recently attended a party with numerous women in my age group, I could literally pick out each and every one that had work on their face. I smiled when they asked me how I kept my skin in such great shape and what did I use to keep it this way! I can honestly say that I now look in the mirror and see the person that I saw myself as in my mind. I look about 10 years younger. I no longer have the wobbly neck and the sagging jowls. My skin even looks smoother. I was so thrilled with the outcome, that I even had Dr. Mandal do some fillers and Botox. Dr. Mandal was amazingly accessible throughout the recovery period and beyond. She never hesitated to answer any of my questions honestly and straight forward. I have recommended her to numerous clients and will continue to do so.

"Dr. Mandal’s attention to detail is outstanding as are her surgical skills. She is very articulate and exact in her practice. She is very personable which allows one to develop a comfort zone, fully confident that any and all services she implements will be successful."
For years I have searching for the right plastic surgeon to help me address the issues of aging. A consultation with Dr. Mandal translated to a WhisperLift and upper and lower eyelid surgery whereas the other plastic surgeons recommended a full face lift and some an eyebrow lift. I was very intrigued with this as we spent the next two hours discussing my needs – jowls, neck, eyes, downtime and cost. Another plus, her office offers several affordable financing programs. All other plastic surgeons would leave the room after their recommendations and I would have to discuss my needs and concerns with the consultant. After a week, I was able to return to work followed with regular visits as she watched the healing process. For the first time in my life, I do not have bags under my eyes. I am thrilled with the results – she has removed at least 10 years from my face and I do not look like I have had a facelift. I look completely natural only 10 years younger! Dr. Mandal’s attention to detail is outstanding as are her surgical skills. She is very articulate and exact in her practice. She is very personable which allows one to develop a comfort zone, fully confident that any and all services she implements will be successful.

"I immediately liked the idea of consulting with a woman surgeon who specialized in the face and neck and was not doing breast augmentations and tummy tucks most of the time."
I am a 68 year old woman and ten years ago, had a complete face lift including blepharoplasty for the second time. Recently, I began to notice some sagging under my chin, lower face and neck. I inquired from a few friends that had recently had lower face and neck lifts about their various procedures and experiences. All of them had gone to what I call “plastic surgery factories” with many doctors and claims of very low fees. For me, this kind of set up would not work. If someone was going to do surgery on my face, I did not care about the money as much as I cared about the skill and artistry of the surgeon. While waiting in a doctor’s office, I picked up an upscale magazine and a lovely ad caught my eye. It was for Dr. Anita Mandal and I immediately liked the idea of consulting with a woman surgeon who specialized in the face and neck and was not doing breast augmentations and tummy tucks most of the time. Upon arriving home that day, I called for a consultation. My first impression upon walking into Dr. Mandal’s office was that it was a peaceful and very beautiful environment. It indicated to me that she gave much thought and attention to creating such a lovely place. It also indicated to me that Dr. Mandal had an artistic soul and that was very important to me. When I met Dr. Mandal for the consultation I knew I had hit the jackpot. She is a lovely woman who listened intently to my many concerns. As a woman, I felt comfortable talking to her and she was very knowledgeable about answering all my questions. She was genuinely interested in me and showed me how I would look and explained exactly what she would be doing. I decided to have the lower face and neck mini-lift as well as redoing my upper eyelids. I was so impressed by what I heard and saw from Dr. Mandal that, even though I didn’t know anyone who had used her as a surgeon, I took a leap of faith and booked my WhisperLift that day. Everything went very well and needless to say I am delighted that I did it. At the risk of sounding immodest, I will say that I’m thrilled with the results and I look great! The downtime after surgery was brief and there was minimal pain. Also, the aftercare I received from Dr. Mandal was outstanding and I felt comfortable calling and speaking to her about any questions I had.
"I am very happy with the outcome. I look younger and very natural. A good friend of mine is an esthetician who sees a lot of women after their surgery. Her comment was that ‘Dr. Mandal did a beautiful job."
I had both the WhisperLift and the upper eyelid lift. The xanax helped me feel calm. I was probably more nervous thinking about it the day before than I was on the day of surgery. During surgery, I felt mostly calm. The first night mostly I was uncomfortable because your head is wrapped up and it's hard to rest. Fortunately, Dr. Mandal will give you pain medication for the pain which took care of it for me. I had some bruising in the chin area but not bad. It was barely noticeable after 2 weeks. The swelling was much better after 1 week, then much much better at 2 weeks. By 3 weeks I couldn't notice any swelling except for in the eyelids, but very minor. There is still some swelling that lasts over a month or two, but very slight. I flew home 12 days after my surgery, then sat across the room from clients on day 13! I was nervous that someone would notice, but NO ONE said anything other than ‘you look so rested from your vacation!’ I felt really comfortable being out in public after 3 weeks. I am very happy with the outcome. I look younger, and very natural. A good friend of mine is an esthetician who sees a lot of women after their surgery. Her comment was that Dr. Mandal did a beautiful job. I agree. The incisions around the ears have been barely noticeable from the first week. Very tiny on the front of the ear. The incisions behind the ear take the longest to heal but of course those aren't seen because of my hair. The eye incisions took longer to disappear - probably about 6-8 weeks, but they are very easy to cover with make up. I would go through it again. If I feel I'm starting to sag again - I will do it again and I will have Dr. Mandal do it. By the way, Dr. Mandal did the same WhisperLift procedure on my sister 3 years ago. She still looks great! I hope these answers help you. I highly recommend Dr. Mandal for this procedure.
