Pros/cons of Lower Face Lift and Neck Tightening

I had a lower face lift as I wanted to feel better about myself. I didn't like the wrinkles in my neck and the jowls I had developed over my life. I am 75 years old and have a past with the sun due to swimming and golf.

I now have a "pointed chin" like I used to and my neck looks tight. I very much like the shape of my face BUT need to do something to the "now horizontal" wrinkles which were once vertical due to gravity. My plastic surgeon says to wait 2 months post surgery to review what do ie fillers/laser treatment or what.

The person who said to wait a while is quite right. It can take a few months for the swelling to go down depending upon the person and her/his age.
Hang in there when face continues to swell and then subside. It takes 3-4 months for everything to go back to normal. My face felt very vulnerable with the feeling that it was going to split open too but that has totally gone and , as I said before, all is well!!
