I was 56, and had decided years ago to have a facelift when I need it. I had some slight jowls, and my face had "fallen" although not dramatically. Still, when I looked in the mirror I felt I didn't know that "older woman" looking back at me. I wanted to get it done because I still feel years and years younger, and wanted to look more like I feel. I wanted to get rid of that aging woman... more
I am very pleased with the results, recovery, care & concern from the staff. The facelift & fat transfer to the areas around my mouth and nasal area using my own tissues gave me a smooth and natural look.

I am a very healthy 41 year old woman.

I am 51yrs old and a Mother of 3 children ages 25,22 and 10. I feel like I am a Mother of a 10yr old.
