A facelift is a surgical procedure that tightens wrinkles and sagging skin on the face and neck caused by aging or weight loss. The results go beyond what can be expected from common injections like Botox and Juvederm. Many different types of facelifts exist, including cheek lifts and mini-liftsLEARN MORE ›

I loved the outcome, but it was so much more painful than I imagined. There was also a lot of fear about finding the right surgeon. I found a doctor who was highly rated in U.S. News and World Report and he referred me to Dr. Morales. He thought my expectations were too high. Facelifts were... READ MORE

I have "interviewed" four doctors. Two of them were recommendations from friends and two were chosen based on reviews on this site. It was an interesting, albeit slightly confusing process, to get input from 4 experts. There was general agreement on my lower face - face and neck lift. ... READ MORE

Dr. Ben Talei has pioneered and mastered "Deep Plane Facelift Technology". He is one of a select few virtuosos capable of performing and instructing other doctors this brand new approach to an antiquated area of plastic surgery. Traditional facelift surgery involves permanent scarring. The... READ MORE

Dr. Krein , at my first consult , confirmed what I knew - I needed a full facelift. Additionally, I needed a brow lift, neck lipo, etc. I have the utmost confidence in Dr. Krein. I knew I wanted him to be my surgeon five minutes into our conversation. He explained, fully, everything that would... READ MORE

Later, haven't had surgery yet......2/9 @ 8 AM. I have been wanting to have work done for over a decade. Seems lately I've been looking so tired though I am not...it was my eyes, the baggy eyes took a toll on me as well as the wrinkles on my cheeks when I smiled. OH and my 'lovely' marionette...

I have wanted to have a facelift for years and I'm so glad that I chose Dr. Smith to perform the procedure for me. I have to say that he and his staff have been so caring and helpful during this entire journey which at this time is still on going. I'm a day 10 after my procedure and I'm well... READ MORE

Dr Jesse Smith is amazing. Truly has a gift given to him by Our God. Just returned from Des Moines, Washington for my 50th high school class reunion. Would like to send some of my old girl friends here for Dr Smiths magic. Please see photo of picture having steamer clams with grandson. ... READ MORE

I felt that after weight loss I even looked older , which made for an ambivalent outcome. So, after letting the idea of a facelift bounce around in my brain, I decided that my 65th birthday was time enough! Did all my research into physician education, experience, reviews and any legal issues.... READ MORE

I've already written my original story and reasons for this procedure, so this is an update with pics. 5 weeks post op and I'm absolutely thrilled with my results. My hubby says he has a 'twenty something wife'...I wish, but he's very pleased considering he was against this surgery in the... READ MORE

I am about a month away from my scheduled surgery. I will be having a facelift, lateral temporal brow lift, lower eyelid blepharoplasty, fat injections to peri-orbital cheekbones, mid face and jawline. I am so incredibly nervous about the upcoming procedures but I can barely stand to look at... READ MORE

Hi my name is Valentina and I'm a 60 year old female, I would like to say the whole experience was very disappointing leaving me stressed, depressed, affected my health, unhappy with my results and a waste of money. Be careful selecting your plastic surgeon, I made a mistake by selecting Dr.... READ MORE

I never really was someone who desired plastic surgery. I had horrible cystic acne as a teenager, which left me with deep acne scars that I was content living with for the rest of my life. I heard about Dr. Velargo through a family member and saw him over a year ago to talk about my eyelids --... READ MORE

I had my facelift in 2012. I had lots of wrinkles that come with age and sun exposure. I knew a facelift was the solution to my problem. The scar hidden behind my hair is barely visible and people who don´t know me can´t tell I had plastic surgery. Because of the swelling, it took a few weeks f... READ MORE

I looked at photos of me and decided that my face did not reflect who I was inside. Inside I felt young and energetic. My face looked unhappy, old and sad. I met with Dr. Weston. He looked at my face, gave me recommendations on what should be done. I agreed and have been thrilled with the... READ MORE

I am 55 years old, and prior to my facelift I felt much younger however looked older. I had jowls, a turkey neck and a puppet mouth. I absolutely hated looking in a mirror. It’s been 5 years since I have felt this way, however with my son getting married this summer (2015) I decided this was t... READ MORE

I started looking tired and the nose to mouth lines were gettng deep!LOL I had a mini face lift 3 yrs ago and this time I had vertical lift...this pulls more upward and the first was more straight back toward my ears. I also did a upper and... READ MORE

After 6 years of actively considering having a necklift, facelift and liposuction, I finally plucked up the courage to have the procedures done. I can honest say that Dominic is fabulous and he and his staff are there for you every step of the way. They put you at ease. My results so far are... READ MORE

Dr. Durkin is AMAZING. HIs friendly personality and warm heart are so refreshing. He is genuine-- inside and out. I trust his judgement more than my primary care doctor because it is so incredibly obvious how much he cares. I saw two other plastic surgeons before deciding on Dr. Durkin. Some... READ MORE

I wanted to look "rejuvenated, rested" like who somebody who just returned from a week long spa but I was absolutely paranoid of being a statistic of bad plastic surgery nightmare... So a year ago I started to go to Dr Andrew Choi's office in Los Angeles for Botox and fillers... I was amazed by... READ MORE

I went in to get a facelift because I could see my fave begin to sag. I went with Dr. Fuentes because of his amazing reputation and let me say he exceeded my expectations! His work is so natural yet so amazing! My friends all tell me how rested and relaxed I look as opposed to making comments on... READ MORE
