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.

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

55 Years, Looking Tired and Old !!! Hated Mirrors and Photos - London GB

I have always looked younger than my age up until the last couple of years. I have good genes to thank for that but recovering from a serious illness, divorce and being a single mum to a 14yr old has taken its toll on my face. Days that start at 500am and working full time again hasn't helped... READ MORE

It's time for my face to match how I feel! Like so many of you, I spent a long time trolling RealSelf's website, reading your reviews, good and bad.

Turning 47, Looked Tired and Older Than I Felt. Full Face Lift - Chin, Brow, Temple Plus Fat Injection to Lips and Cheeks

I was feeling depressed about the way I looked. For many years, I held my age very well but in the past 24 months noticed that I was aging much faster.

I decided to write my review on Thanksgiving Day because I am so very thankful this year that I am finally embarking on this long planned for journey.

40 Year Old Unwanted Baggage - Salisbury, MD

At 40, I changed careers and realized that I had really neglected myself. Years of caring for others and not sleeping well had taken their toll on my eyes. I decided to have juvederm injections in the tear trough. I should've asked more recovery questions because I wasn't prepared for the amount... READ MORE

Tomorrow is my procedure and I can't wait!!! I have been disliking my neck for a few years now. Also, my lower face is bothersomely saggy with lack of tone.

Facelift - Good Experience and Great Results (2.5 Weeks Post Op)

There's only that much creams and a healthy lifestyle can do. I'm now 2.5 weeks post having this operation and so far very happy with the results.

Face Lift, Neck Lift, Endoscopic Brow Lift and Fat Transfers - 60 yr. Old

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

Neck and Facelift. Upper and Lower Eyes - Houston, TX

Highly recommend and can honestly say this was pretty pain free. Dr. Patronella and office Staff were so wonderful and professional. He also did breast implants 9 years ago. I did not have a brow lift. I'm 6 months out now and can still tell when I've had too much salt. It's a good reminder... READ MORE

Facelift by Dr. Robert Freund in Manhattan- Scared and Excited. Manhattan, NY

Had my eyes done (upper and lower) in 2007 and now I decided to do my face. My husband claims I don't need it along with many others. I'm told I'm aging well for the ripe young age of 68.
