A facelift is a surgical procedure that tightens wrinkles and sagging skin on the face and neck caused by aging or weight loss. The results go beyond what can be expected from common injections like Botox and Juvederm. Many different types of facelifts exist, including cheek lifts and mini-liftsLEARN MORE ›

My journey started long before I made my plans to visit Costa Rica. 22 days away from surgery & having all the same feelings many of you have already had & many of you are still to experience. My advice for what it's worth... Have faith in your decision, stick to your guns & breathe, just... READ MORE

So much information has really helped me in my decision. I thank all of you. I met with all his office staff and found them to be... READ MORE

Later, haven't had surgery yet......2/9 @ 8 AM. I have been wanting to have work done for over a decade. Seems lately I've been looking so tired though I am not...it was my eyes, the baggy eyes took a toll on me as well as the wrinkles on my cheeks when I smiled. OH and my 'lovely' marionette...

Day was was tough, not a lot of pain just the wrapping is tight and uncomfortable along with the drains. That is taken out the next day. My bruising has been an issue it's been 2 weeks and I am finally starting to see the bruises go away. Numbness comes with it and from what I understand will... READ MORE

I have wanted to have a facelift for years and I'm so glad that I chose Dr. Smith to perform the procedure for me. I have to say that he and his staff have been so caring and helpful during this entire journey which at this time is still on going. I'm a day 10 after my procedure and I'm well... READ MORE

Tried to do a review 3 times but lost them each time I tried to upload photos. So I'll be brief in case this also doesn't post. Gets disheartening when you do a long blog and lose it. Have made contact with my potential surgeon and am waiting for a consultation date. Now that I've done... READ MORE

I'm at the very nervous stage. I think I am most concerned with the bruising after and that I may be cooped up for weeks. Whenever I have gotten fillers there has been a lot of swelling and bruising. I can't even imagine what this may be like. I can't wait for the final results , however. Any... READ MORE

My procedure is to take place at Jinemed Hospital in Istanbul, but other than taking my deposit I've heard nothing from the hospital, other than I am a good can't date and they will be happy to perform lower facelift and neck lift on me. I have had no medical questions asked and no follow up on... READ MORE

Dr Jesse Smith is amazing. Truly has a gift given to him by Our God. Just returned from Des Moines, Washington for my 50th high school class reunion. Would like to send some of my old girl friends here for Dr Smiths magic. Please see photo of picture having steamer clams with grandson. ... READ MORE

I'm so grateful to all the ladies who have shared their experiences here. It helps so much to see what it's really like from the point of decision through to healing and final results. So, I want to add to the collective experience, and given I've only told one person about this (a male friend... READ MORE

I’m 58 years old and have always taken good care of myself with supplements, exercise and bio-identical hormones, which I started about 3 years after menopause. I feel like I’m in my twenties most of the time. The bod is 103 pounds of toned muscle. When your mind tells you that you are... READ MORE

The procedure looked simple, felts simple, I knew what I was going in for, simple, quick. as if I was in the dentist office. The issue seems to be mainly with the left side of my face, completely bumpy, deep dips for each exit hole, bumps near the top of the ear, I look worse then Frankenstein.... READ MORE

I felt that after weight loss I even looked older , which made for an ambivalent outcome. So, after letting the idea of a facelift bounce around in my brain, I decided that my 65th birthday was time enough! Did all my research into physician education, experience, reviews and any legal issues.... READ MORE

I've already written my original story and reasons for this procedure, so this is an update with pics. 5 weeks post op and I'm absolutely thrilled with my results. My hubby says he has a 'twenty something wife'...I wish, but he's very pleased considering he was against this surgery in the... READ MORE

I have my FL scheduled with Dr Bruneteau at Surgical Images for December 9th. He did my BR almost 2 years ago and was very pleased with his work. Will post before pictures as soon as I get some taken and uploaded. Don't take to many of myself....my selfies are just awful now, but will be... READ MORE

I'm ready! Tuesday marks the day I find myself again! I want to thank everyone here on Real Self for being so brave and kind in sharing your journeys and pics. If thats not the portrait of strong, courageous women, then I don't know what one is! You have all answered my endless questions and... READ MORE

I remember knowing that I would have a facelift one day when I was a teenager.. I just thought I would need it in my 30's, since that was old ;). Now I'm 53 and it really is time. Natural aging plus a 22 pound weight loss over the last 18 months has really taken a toll on my face and neck. ... READ MORE

I am about a month away from my scheduled surgery. I will be having a facelift, lateral temporal brow lift, lower eyelid blepharoplasty, fat injections to peri-orbital cheekbones, mid face and jawline. I am so incredibly nervous about the upcoming procedures but I can barely stand to look at... READ MORE

Hi my name is Valentina and I'm a 60 year old female, I would like to say the whole experience was very disappointing leaving me stressed, depressed, affected my health, unhappy with my results and a waste of money. Be careful selecting your plastic surgeon, I made a mistake by selecting Dr.... READ MORE
