A facelift reduces wrinkles and sagging skin on the face and neck caused by aging or weight loss. The procedure removes excess skin, tightens the underlying muscles, and redrapes the skin in a higher position. The results go beyond what can be expected from wrinkle-fighting injections like Botox. Different types of lifts, such as cheek lifts or mini lifts, address specific concerns.

51 Year Old Executive with Damaged Neck

Great results, no pain, minor yellow bruising only on neck that lasted a few days. Back to work in 2 weeks. Look refreshed and younger but still look like me. Outstanding surgeon I would highly recommend. Originally thought I only wanted a necklift due to bad damage from a neck injury and a... READ MORE

55 y.o - searching for the fountain of youth!!

So- I've been trolling around RealSelf for a month or so. I came upon this site when googling for a plastic surgeon to see if I could afford a facelift. I've wanted this for at least two years. But, no way to justify spending that kind of money. However now it's changed- I work in my husbands... READ MORE

Good Bye Jowls, Saggy Neck and (Hopefully) 20 Years! Hello Lift & Fat Insertion.

Since I'm 3 days out from surgery, outcome is yet to be determined. I am still swollen and sore/stiff. My doctor was voted the best in my city for the third year running and studied under one of the best doctors in the world - period, so I have every confidence that once the swelling is gone,...

An Affordable ($3500 total + $200 consultation) Exceptional Facelift - Mount Sinai Hospital, NYC

I knew I couldn't afford $30,000-$40,000 for a facelift and my surgeon who had done liposuction and upper lid blepharoplasty retired. So when I read an article in passing that you could have the Chief Resident (with a LOT of experience doing them-- maybe more than most doctors around) at Mt.... READ MORE

57 Years Old. Two Grown Up Children.Fitness Addicted ☺.. Had a necklift and SMAS facelift

I had noticed sign of aging for a few years, especially on my neck and some lines from my mouth and down to my jaw. My jawline was straight and no bags or obvious laxity, but in unflattering light I noticed the first signs of bags in development. I live in Norway and our plastic surgeons I... READ MORE

Surgery at Mt. Sinai's resident clinic

I have been reading reviews and researching many procedures. A lot of courageous women on here. I have had one consult so far. It was at Pittsburgh's Upmc clinic. Their hospital fees were very high as they don't have a clinic. I have been considering having my facelift done at New York's Mt.... READ MORE

Happy Camper

When I turned 50, my jowls went south, and my neck looked like a turkey. That year I got so much pre-jowl filler, I was beginning to get a Quentin Tarantino chin. The next year, I decided it was time to quit wasting money on short-term fixes and get a facelift for the long-term results. For me,... READ MORE

The only reason I’m giving Dr Bitner 5 stars is because they don’t allow 10! And that goes for his staff as well. I swore I would NEVER get plastic surgery on my face, but here I am looking & FEELING 20 years younger at almost 70 yrs old! I was extremely nervous having seen nightmare res... READ MORE
