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.

New Life at 69!!!!! - Rockville, MD

My motivations to choose facial plastic surgery was the failure of creams, lotions, and gels, over the years, to repair and dissipate signs of aging. I never thought, for me, surgery was an option due to, what I thought, was cost prohibitive. However, not only was my outcome truly amazing, but... READ MORE

61 Year Old Say Bye to Turkey Neck and Jowls - Bethesda, MD

I chose Dr. Jabs based on experience, honors, and reviews. I originally made an appointment to talk about the Quick Lift that he advertises.

Wow!!! - Bethesda, MD

I sorely needed a face lift, but was scared. Scared of having elective surgery that as my internist said, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” But, my face - in its sagging neck and lined lower face - impeded my ability to work - whether in fact, or my own projection. Dr. Richards team brought... READ MORE

60th Birthday Gift to Me! Thank You Dr. Shah - Chicago, IL

I don't like getting older, and I certainly didn't like looking older. For me, 60 sounds old, but I love it now when people are stunned by my age. After I retired, the only thing I wanted was a facelift--no parties, no presents just a turning back of the clock. I do spend a lot of time and cash... READ MORE

Happy at 71! - Puerto Vallarta, MX

At age 71 I was spending the winter in Puerto Vallarta and, after four wonderful tours to places in Mexico and Cuba, I thought, why not try to research plastic surgeons? My "marionette lines" and a sagging chin were looking at me in the mirror every morning and I found that I was smiling... READ MORE

After having read and benefitted from dozens and DOZENS of reviews on this site, writing my own review seems like the least I can do in return.

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.
