I agonized over the decision to have a facelift here in Georgia. I am originally from Connecticut not far from NYC and had my choice of high profile doctors. In the end I trusted my gut that my PS here was well trained and skilled. He turned out to be great and I love the results. It is not the easiest surgery in the world to endure so I don't want to make it sound like it is. It is painful and the real recovery can be long, you may look better relatively soon, but the numbness and discomfort can be much longer. The thing that makes it all worth it is the mirror ! I look at myself and am so pleased that I look like me but younger and refreshed. I still need a little restalyne around my eyes, we tried to use some fat from my neck but it wasn't enough to fill the lines. That is fine with me, I am willing to do a little more tweaking but not much. Overall I am 100% happy with my PS and my face !

I just want to clear up that my Doctor is not Douglas but Donald or DJ Campbell MD. He is at Northeast Georgia Plastic Surgery Associates .

its been about 3 months and I am really happy with my lack of jowels ! I started using the Obagi skin care system routinely and it is making a nice difference in my skin texture and brown spots. I am committed to taking good care of my skin and making the most of this surgery ! I am going to have some filler in my tear troughs as my face is smallish and all the fat seems to leave there first, so wish me luck that the grand finale will be some under eye filler !
no jowls no more

9 months post surgery. I feel great, no numbness or tingling, my ears are not pink anymore, no swelling and my jowls are gone. I am a bit hollow under my eyes but am having gradual filler added to the orbital area above cheekbones and maybe that will eventually fill it in a bit. Overall I am 100% happy with my results !
1 year anniversary
Its been one year since my facelift and I am truly happy I did it. The results settled in nicely and I look at myself in the mirror and like what I see. Am I perfect, nope, not at all but I look rested, my skin is smooth (with the help of photofacial every so often) and I drink copious amounts of water and eat right. So all in all I say if you are doing your part and nature is not co-operating, do it !
