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 in my mirror. I also had my upper and lower eyelids done at the same time. I had quite of bit of swelling in the first several days after the procedure. But by week two I was out of the house and able to go out to eat with my family. I simply worse some cover make-up over the still healing bruises. By six weeks most of the swelling was gone, and the remainder of the swelling was so slight it was neglible. I have no regrets and would do it again.
Just curious what actual procedures were done, did you have stitches all around the ears? I am 57 and considering some work however do not know how much I want to have done. For sure upper and lower blephs.

Birmingham Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Cohn was one of several plastic surgeons from whom I sought a consultation. In contrast to other Dr. Cohn was obviously very passionate about his chosen profession. He spent as much time with me as I needed, and answered all of my questions. I am an RN, and thoroughly research before choosing any healthcare provider. It was a great experience to sit with a plastic surgeon who really listened to my concerns, and took whatever time needed to provide me with all of the information I needed to make my decision. Dr. Cohn was available to me preoperatively, and post-operatively when needed. The line of communication was excellent, both with Dr. Cohn and his staff. I would highly recommend Dr. Cohn. My only complaint is actually also a positive point about him, and that is the wait time to see him. During initial consultation appointment I waited over 45 minutes past my appointment time to see him. However, when I did see him I was not rushed at all, and he took all of the time needed to do my consultation. I quickly realized that my initial consultation was late because he was giving another patient the time that patient needed. So, the wait time didn't bother me at all. Again, I highly recommend Dr. Cohn.
