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.

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

OK. Here we go! I've been thinking about this for a couple of years and after months of research decided on Costa Rica and Dr. Arguello. His impeccable qualifications and excellent reviews on RS paved the way. I chose Verdeza for my recovery and traveled alone to CR. Traveling alone was no new... READ MORE

56 year old white male, 5'10", 175 lbs. Surgery is tomorrow morning under IV sedation. I'm a bit nervous, but ready to do this. I've posted front view and profile view before photos. I'll post progress updates throughout the recovery process. My main area of concern is my droopy cheeks, which... READ MORE

My facial skin was injured several years ago due to treatment that did not fit my skin at all. Facial skin started sagging before its time. I decided to look for a very good surgeon that would fix it. I thought I found one very good one. He teaches his techniques frequently and seems like to be... READ MORE

Well, I am now booked for a lower face and neck lift in 7 weeks time. If anyone has any tips for me, or a list of things to buy to make life easier after the surgery, or expereinbce of a facelift themselves, please let me know :) I will post pictures on here for before and after with any...

*Please see my separate review for breast Explant* I've never been able to roll out of bed and look great, but with a little bit of mascara & lip color, I could go anywhere. That is, until this last year. Brought out the pro makeup and brushes and spent at least 20 mins carefully applying... READ MORE

All I wanted out of this was a neckline again. I knew liposuction would not be enough for me. My local doctor charges $9,000 for a neck lift, so $6,900 for a full face lift sounded pretty good to me! I paid an extra $3500 for a breast lift, and I was told I needed to stay at Pat's recovery... READ MORE

After losing 100lbs I decided that saggy was NOT a look that I could live with! I am 57, but don't need to look 57. I hated seeing that lose skin on my neck and the drapey crap at my mouth. My upper eyelids were sliding south at an alarming speed. Enough was enough. Off to the plastic surgeon I... READ MORE

I have like most other thought about having this procedure done for several years. I was half joking, half serious when I would say I am going to wait until I am 60 and then I am going to have a facelift thinking that by waiting until then I will only need to do it once. Well here I am 60 and... READ MORE

I am expecting to not look like I have had a face lift. I don't want people asking me who my PS is. I expect to just look refreshed and well rested. I have reached the point to where I hate pictures of myself. My fiance has learned that I like pictures better when he holds the camera higher and... READ MORE

My husband asked me what I wanted for my 35th anniversary present and I said (half jokingly and half dead serious) plastic surgery. To my surprise and delight he said "you got it". I am 63, active and fit, but for the last year I've really noticed the aging process progressing and making me... READ MORE

Stayed in clinic overnight woth 1 to 1 care. Excellent. Had facelit upper and lower eyelids on day 1. Feel no pain. Have tummy tuck... READ MORE

I've had Botox and fillers to my lower face in the past. These treatments didn't help at all. I've been told by both the dermatologist and a another prominent PS (advertises HEAVILY on this site) that because I have such a heavy face and prominent malar mounds (I had to look up the meaning of...

I have already shared in part my breast augmentation issues on my profile. I also wanted to share how I'm doing with the rest I have not yet shared. On 10/6 I also had a facelift, and fat transfer. Yes at 40. I am 5 days post op. I was in surgery for 6+ hours and recovery for 3. I was put on... READ MORE

Well I have been on RealSelf for about a year now. I started checking it out when I got a gastric bypass because I knew I would need some plastics done. Iv lost about 100 lbs and still have another 30 or so to go, hence the Nov date. I have chosen Dr Arguello in Costa Rica. He has fantasic... READ MORE

I was dismayed to see how much my skin started sagging after menopause. I retired from my long term job young, at 52, and as happy as I was to retire, it was hard to take the physical changes. I tried ulthera, which appeared to help a little for a few months, but I looked the same after a year.... READ MORE

I am 50 yrs old, 5 ft tall and 110 pds. I am having a facelift, including neck Lift & upper bleph. I have been having face filler and botox for the past 8 years. Why I am Having This Done Now - I have come to the point where I don't want to invest any more $$ for filler, time to get to... READ MORE

I have always looked young for my age, that is until about 3 years ago when life, stress and gravity took it's toll. I had my upper eyelids done at that time to repair my droopy eyelids that I felt were a contributing factor to my aging face. It worked but in the fall of 2015 I started to... READ MORE

Am waiting to see Dr. Arguello for final consult before surgery tomorrow. Cost includes facelift necklift, upper & lower blephoplasty. If we agree on a short scar armlift procedure, that adds $3,000. Hospital costs will be $4000 approx. Misc tests and meds total approx $400. I will stay 7... READ MORE
