Looking good babe! You will have about 3-5 more days of looking bashed up but it's going to be SOOO worth it. One hint that will help: AVOID SALT!!! Eating salty food will make you swell up like a balloon and it HURTS!!

Today is the ninth days since surgery everything is good. Im still a bit swollen but I can tell I'm going to love the results. Nothing to complain about. O my ears hurt a little an my neck is still tight .


I'd like to see a before photo. You look amazingly good for 4 days post surgery.

Thinking of having a LSL for sometime now. I went for a consultation last week I am so nervous and want to make the right decision A little skeptical especially after seeing so many negative reviews If you recently had a LSL please share your experience and results to help me make a decision

I had it done in January. Doesn't matter what you will do - lower face lift, neck lift or so-called LSL - it's all the same procedures, LSL gives general guidelines but every doctor is using their own techniques. Do a diligent work and research your doctor. You need to make sure that your doctor is skilled in lower face lift and in generally face lift procedures. This will ensure that all the stitching and tacking and nipping will be done the right way. He should be not the cosmetic surgeon but rather certified plastic surgeon - those two are different certifications. Mine was triple certified - ENT surgery, cosmetic and plastic surgery. So if you will feel comfortable with your doctor and have realistic expectations - it will be all good. Good luck!

so far so good

@LimoBarbie Thanks
I had teen LSL 10 months ago and am happy. As long as you go into it with realistic outcomes. I still do filler for area between mouth and nose plus frown lines on outer lip by overly very pleased.
