I thought this would be a way to buy more time before having a full facelift in a few years. I'm only 50 but was very unhappy with the skin tone and developing jowls. The procedure took 2.5 hours and even with medication was very, very painful. The results took time to develop and after 4 months I really can't see any change at all. Even looking at the before pictures there is little to report other than a lighter wallet.
