My idea for having a facelift was to do it earlier in life so it wouldn't be so extreme that people would really notice.For years I have noticed the jowels and skin on my neck start to sag. The genetics in my family are not the best. I have always taken care of my skin but eventually your genes will prevail.
I am 3 days post and I will say day 1 was uncomfortable. I do have a lot of swelling in my cheeks and minimal bruising. My gobbler neck is gone! That alone makes me happy.
