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.

Love the Results and Highly Recommend my Doctor! - Baltimore, MD

At 53, my face was looking a little too much like a basset hound's and my neck had developed the turkey look.

55 Years Old and Tired of Looking Like I'm Frowning - Asheville, NC

I am 55 years old and tired of having loose skin around my mouth and jowls. When I have a neutral face, I look like I'm frowning. Over the past couple of years I have lost 55 pounds.

Breaks My Heart to Have This Poor, Muddled Review- I Wanted a Different Story - Mexico

I spent over 4 years researching options for my face. I tried many non-surgical approaches. Although relatively young (currently 47), I went into menopause at 41 years old and feel that my face took a pretty rough hit. Starting in 2012 I spoke with a variety of doctors at home and abroad.... READ MORE

Brow, Face and Neck Lift - Dallas, TX

I had a brow, face and neck lift Jan 2011. I went to 5 surgeons before choosing one. After this experience I realize NOT ONE of the surgeons told me or prepared me for the REAL experience.

After 12 years of Infertility, including 6 miscarriages and 7 IVF transfers...I was lucky to finally give birth to beautiful twins.

51 Yr Old Face, Brow, Neck, Lift and Undereye Bag Removal - Vineland, NJ

I wanted to turn back the clock and look younger. But, this surgery came out poorly. First, my lower lids had too much tissue removed.

Initially, I wasn't going to write a review because I am a very private person, but I decided that I was doing the RealSelf community a disservice by not participating.
