I said if at age 60 I had jowels, saggy neck and mudflaps for eyelids I would get work done. Guess what. On March 14,2012 1 month before my 60th I had a facelift done. In Canada the cost would have been $25,00.00. I did research in depth and found an international clinic in Cancun Mexico that is highly recommended. I talked with ladies who had my procedure done and had high recommendations. So in 1 week I flew to cancun. My Doctor did a lot more. A brow lift, muscle released between the brows so the crease is not visible, upper lower eyelids, fat grafting under the eyes and in the nasal folds, lower face and neck lift. I am only 2.5 weeks and the results are amazing. In 6 months it will be better.
Now it is 7 weeks after surgery. Each day the...

Wonderful results. No complications at all. My greatest advice for anyone is be patient. The first few weeks can be very scary depending on bruising and healing. We all heal different. But some of the things I did and used greatly helped. If anyone wants more in depth discussion please Private Message me. I love to talk about it.
This has changed my life from looking in the mirror and thinking what happened it all fell down. Now I am young outside as on my very passionate inside young self. It is so worth it and so safe. Going to Cancun was a wonderful sunny warm vacation in a exceptional private hospital with all English speaking staff and Doctor. I did a lot of research before going and the price was beyond what I could afford in Canada and that is why I chose this. All around it was a fantastic journey and more to come as I heal more in the next 3-12 months.

Am I happy? Yes yes yes. Would I do it again . Yes yes yes
International Patient Facilitators are going to add more suites on the beach for recovery soon. Perhaps August . Sheri Burke CEO did an excellent job and everything went smoothly with no surprises. Highly recommended by many patients.

Things have really settled quite nicely. I still have a bit of numbness on the sides of my cheeks and in the right side of my scalp where the incision was. With the lipo under my chin I had some swelling which is gone and the skin has tightened up. My turkey neck is gone and eyelids are tight. I look in the mirror and am so happy. I would do this again in a heart beat.
Fat grafting or not ! From my experience now I...

From my experience now I see one of the main things in an ageing face is loss of volume. If I just had the deep plane lift, yes all the muscle would be lifted, but I would still have the deep lines beside my mouth and my cheek bones would be more hollow. With the complete picture you need volume added. Now my nasal labial folds are gone and my cheeks are lifted and higher. Now over 4months everything is where it should be. No lumps or bumps . My face is smooth. I think a lot of this is due to the experienced surgeon. Dr Velasco does continuing research into his procedures and believe me I was nervous about having it done. But I did my research and it proved successful. I read a lot about fat transfers gone wrong.
6 month Update This has changed my life. Turning...

This has changed my life. Turning 60 is a milestone. Many friends have passed and good health is my prime goal. Feeling good about ourselves is now or never. There is no tomorrow. As Eckhart Tolle says live in the moment. I now feel like the young inner self that I have. More refreshed, turkey neck gone and cheeks uplifted. The outcome has been total success.
My only word of advice is please wait for healing. All the lumps and bumps and swelling takes time to go down. Now 6 months later
I have some numbness on my face closer to my ears and the incision line in my head on the right side. But gradually week by week it comes back slowly. Like tingles and icheyness. The swelling under my chin took about 4 months to release.
It has been so worth it.
My rating is 5 stars as all care was excellent, My facilitator Sheri Burke provided a professional service from beginning to end. From arriving at the condo, to surgery, to all doctor appointments, everything went so smoothly. I had a direct line to Sheri with any concerns during recovery.Dr Velasco speaks fluent English and now you have your own private English speaking nurse.The cost included 12 days in a condo with all medications, compression garment , doctor appointments and all transfers. Dr Velasco has methods that are very advanced. He did fat transfers from my eyelids to under the orbital face bone and my nasal folds. Amazing natural results.
