I'm 52 and I had a lifestyle lift along with face and neck lyposculpture 18 days ago. I had a very heavy neck and jowls.
I'm very happy with the results. I was back to work on the 4th day after surgery, although I still had to wear a bandage. The procedure itself was not painfull and not uncomfortable for me. I needed pain meds the first day and then just at night for the next four days. One week after surgery I went out and about. Still some bruising but was able to cover it with makeup.
After reading the reviews on this site I was concerned and almost cancelled. I'm very glad I didn't. I look years younger.
