I am an active 49 year-old who wants to look like I feel. My face, especially the lower area seemed to be getting lines and looking heavier than it should. I also realized that this problem meant surgery if I wanted to look how I always did; hence I consulted with Dr. Jon Mendelsohn. I have been a patient of Dr. Mendelsohn's for 8 yrs for routine things like filler and botox. I had done my research on him and knew he was a top doc! And for 8 years he artfully applied small amounts of filler and then later botox to certain areas of my face and I was able to keep my appearance the same without people noticing that I had something done. It was because of this experience with him that I knew he would be able to provide a natural effect for me when the time came for surgery. The surgery (The Advanced Lift) was painless and quick and I remain ecstatic over my result!! Not one of my friends noticed I had anything done-which is exactly what I had hoped for. The reason for this is because Dr. Mendelsohn took just the right amount of skin away and of course deftly tightened my jaw line-my husband and I are thrilled that I can look years longer from such a procedure. My skin is so smooth and my neck looks like it did when I was 35!! I love wearing pony tails again because my profile is back in shape-I look like me still, just smoother and younger. I have no tightness or pulling but a totally natural effect. I was down for about 7 days with this surgery (I also had an upper eye lid left at the same time), and on the 8th day went out to the store. I was still a bit bruised (very minor) which is easily concealed by make-up and no one seemed to notice! This surgery was life-changing for me-it renewed my appreciation for myself and that is priceless!! I would do this again and truly wish that every woman could experience it. I would not allow anyone but Dr. Mendelsohn to touch my face; he is a good physician, caring person, and an artist!

Hi ! The Advanced lift by Dr. Mendelsohn is basically a lower face lift. Lines under the cheek area and the entire jawline is lifted (the muscle underneath is lifted too to make it last). Still can't believe how much better I look................................there are 3-D videos of these procedures on his website too
