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 think I always knew that one day I would probably need a facelift. I was a sun worshiper from an early age and even at age 10, remember slathering on the oil and lemon juice and frying myself in the midday sun, all in the name of 'beauty'! In my 20’s I lived in France and Africa, and when I o... READ MORE

This has been a long journey for me, at times an arduous process. Dealing with this thing called growing old. For me it began in my late thirties. I started to notice the jowls forming, the same genetics as my dear mom. I was married to a man 10 years younger so the negative feelings of... READ MORE

I work full time, and have a farm, horses, and a grandchild living with me. I 'live' much younger than I looked. When I my skin started aging, it hit hard and fast, and I was not ready to accept that. I work in the high tech world and do not want to appear 'old' and perceived as irrelevant... READ MORE

So. I have by nature a very heavy forehead. over the years, from about 30, my eyelids started to droop to the point where I gave up on makeup. The area under my eyes were sunken and dark. and on top of that, the last few years, I started getting jowls. Not a lot, but enough. My face looked like... READ MORE

Tried to do a review 3 times but lost them each time I tried to upload photos. So I'll be brief in case this also doesn't post. Gets disheartening when you do a long blog and lose it. Have made contact with my potential surgeon and am waiting for a consultation date. Now that I've done... READ MORE

I started noticing at the beginning of last year that the skin on my neck was getting loose and I tried to ignore it at first then tried unsuccessfully to cover it with scarves etc, and then decided to just accept it. I then lost some weight during that summer ( about a stone) and it took its... READ MORE

Have no idea why my photos are sideways. Sorry. After 2 yrs researching and reviewing positive feedback on this website I have finally selected my surgeon !!! Dr Sameer. Yes I have compared him to plastic surgeons in Malaysia, Thailand, Mexico, Brazil, Costa Rica and yes even Australia. For... READ MORE

I am extremely happy with my facelift which was performed by Dr. Ronald Edelson. My procedure consisted of chin and neck lift. When I was searching for a plastic surgeon, I started my search on the Internet. I came across Dr Edelson's name. I was very impressed with his qualifications, and his... READ MORE

I've been wanting to have a facelift for several years and I've finally decided to just bite the bullet and go for it!! I've fine a lot of research and I'm going with Dr. Alejandro Lev in Costa Rica. He does amazing facelifts and has a lot of good reviews. I've been reading some of the reviews... READ MORE

When I turned 40, I decided I wanted to "get in shape". A friend challenged me to sign up for a 1/2 marathon and I signed up!!!! Mind you, I was a previous smoker, ate unhealthy and drank Mountain Dew on a daily basis. I ran my 1st 1/2 marathon and thought to myself "wow, I really did that"! For... READ MORE

I'm 24 days out from my face and neck lift, string removal and fat injections to add the volume back to my face. I made the mistake a few years back to go have a procedure done called the string lift. What a waste of money. Now two short years later the strings are not only painful but coming... READ MORE

I can't thank Dr. Parker Velargo enough for giving me my confidence back. He is very professional, honest, kind and truly cares about his patients. The after care was wonderful. He even gave us his personal number to contact him if we had any concerns-how many doctors do that?! I am very happy... READ MORE

Hello all. I've been thinking about a facelift for a couple years now. The appearance of light jowls several years ago combined with a lifelong loose skin under my chin started me thinking about it. This year I selected a surgeon who works only on the head (face and ears). He has a great... READ MORE

I remember knowing that I would have a facelift one day when I was a teenager.. I just thought I would need it in my 30's, since that was old ;). Now I'm 53 and it really is time. Natural aging plus a 22 pound weight loss over the last 18 months has really taken a toll on my face and neck. ... READ MORE

I am a realtor, so looking my best is extremely important to me, however I did not want to look as if I had work done if that makes sense. My Results are fantastic and I could not have asked for a better outcome! By using local anesthesia, the procedure and experience was much easier than I... READ MORE

The moment I met Dr. Lanfranchi, I knew he was the doctor for me. He is meticulous, patient, vibrant and so gentle. He talked me out of things I DIDN'T need which showed me trust. Honestly, I have had teeth cleanings that hurst more than this face, neck, eye brow and eyelid surgery. No pain and... READ MORE

I always was blessed to look younger than my age, but at 52, I started to notice sagging and loss of volume in my face and the signs of aging began. I no longer looked younger than my age. So I went to Life Style Lift (2009), in Reston VA, and had the mini-lift procedure. The procedure was... READ MORE

For a few years now I noticed my face falling and my turkey neck. It adds years and I noticed people treating me differently. Maybe I look more tired than I feel? As many women have written on this site, it sneaks up on you and one day you look in the mirror and can't believe the reflection. I... READ MORE

Like so many women here have said before me, I always knew that I would someday have a face lift. Thankfully, my face has held up well until just the last 4 years or so. My sisters have even asked me several times over the years if I had already had work done. (no) I've thought about surgery... READ MORE
