53 Years Old, Sagging Jowls, and Too Many Laugh Lines! - Highland Park, NJ

My motivation was not to correct my face, but to look like myself, 10 years ago. I wanted to have more youthful and firmer skin. I did a lot of research and knew that a 'mini' lift would not do the trick. I also researched board certified surgeons, asked a lot of questions, until I decided on Dr. Mark Glasgold.

Chin swelling and slight bruising 8 days post-surgery

Highland Park Facial Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Mark Glasgold wanted to know exactly what my expectations were, and we had many conversations so that we were both comfortable with the desired outcome. He was warm, friendly and extremely knowledgeable. He provided a detailed explanation of the procedure, and what I could expect post surgery from day one to 6 months out. He clearly loves his job, and his enthusiasm inspired my confidence in him. He put me at ease every step of the way, from our first appointment to the most recent appointment. During my first post-surgery appointment with him, he answered all my questions and concerns with patience and detail. He reassured me that the slight bruising, swelling and discomfort were all normal, then took it a step further by explaining exactly why my tissues were swelling, or my neck felt tender. I was more educated and informed by the end of the appointment, and completely at ease with the results. One week out, and I can already see that the outcome is exactly what I wanted. I highly recommend Dr. Mark Glasgold. I am thrilled with my facelift.

Looking good --- I know from the neck we always have swelling under the chin -- mine is finally getting better with massages --- but still a bulge - but at least not hanging! :)

I'm glad you're happy with your experience so far. What supplies have you been using to stay comfortable as you heal?

Right now, at 10 days out, just Motrin. Although I used cold packs frequently the first week, not for the swelling, but because it felt so good on my face. My face often feels warm post-surgery, and the cold packs are a relief.

How are you doing at 10 days? Sounds like maybe not too much swelling?

Very small amount of swelling on my face and under my chin. Nothing that a scarf can't conceal. The chin will take a little more time, since everything settles at the bottom of the face. However, I've observed that what seems obvious to me, other people don't notice at all!

I swelled under my chin a bit, but it resolved within two to three weeks. Do you like your facelift so far in general? I am very pleased with mine and I'm about four and half weeks out.
