I Was Realistic in my Expectations and Am Very Pleased

The pros: I got an estimate from a plastic surgeon for a regular face lift. It was over $20,000.

Cons: it was scary at the time.

I had the procedure done about 6 months ago. The swelling and hardness are gone, but it took about 3-4 months. My neck is not as good as I hoped it would be. But I have been studying my family and see that we all have a sloped neckline, even my thin 19 year old daughter. So my neck is as good as it gets for my genetics. I also had my lower eyelids done. That was the most dramtic difference. I think, overall, it was excellent. It may have been better if I had done the traditional surgery.

But I never would have for $20,000. I am very happy. My surgeon was in Clayton, MO. I recommend him. But I cannot speak to the other surgeons there. The pain I had the first night was horrible. But my husband, being worried about overdosing on pain pills, was not giving me the full dose. Once I took the full dose, it was no problem. You just have to take the next pill before the first one wears off.
