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 ›

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

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

Getting a face and Neck lift with Obagi Blue Peel. I am 58 and ready to do this. Nervous, which is normal but try to focus on the beautiful outcomes on this website. 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

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

There are many fine plastic surgeons in San Diego, and I have been to a few. For at least 10 years, I have been considering having a few procedures. However, I found that I could not commit to a surgeon. Each time I would get close to going through with a facelift, I would re-examine the... READ MORE

I never really was someone who desired plastic surgery. I had horrible cystic acne as a teenager, which left me with deep acne scars that I was content living with for the rest of my life. I heard about Dr. Velargo through a family member and saw him over a year ago to talk about my eyelids --... READ MORE

I'd been thinking of doing this for years...Because it was elective no insurance coverage was available. I worked hard saved my money and made my appointment never looking back ( they also finance) so don't let money stop you because Cash or Finance it's worth every single dime. However, while...

I had my facelift in 2012. I had lots of wrinkles that come with age and sun exposure. I knew a facelift was the solution to my problem. The scar hidden behind my hair is barely visible and people who don´t know me can´t tell I had plastic surgery. Because of the swelling, it took a few weeks... READ MORE

Very excited and nervous to be getting my face done this summer. I hate my neck, which has aged a lot in the last couple years and how the corners of my mouth are going down, early jowling blech! One side of my face looks older than the other side, too. No review yet, as I'm going in at the... READ MORE

My motivations to choose facial plastic surgery was the failure of creams, lotions, and gels, over the years, to repair and dissipate signs of aging. I never thought, for me, surgery was an option due to, what I thought, was cost prohibitive. However, not only was my outcome truly amazing, but... 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
