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.

57 and Feel Ancient. Penrith, AU

Extremely unhappy with 'at rest' face and looking tired and angry all the time. Booked in for SMAS lower face and neck lift which surgeon assures will give a very good result. I'm hopeful, excited and a little nervous. Four hours is a long time to be under anaesthetic. Really can't wait to have... READ MORE

Mini Facelift for 41 year old female

For the past couple of years I've noticed my face becoming more squarish and less heart shaped. I don't have a lot of sagging or loose skin yet, but I'm not happy with the more masculine shape my face is morphing into. I'm scheduled for a mini facelift on December 1st. I will also have lipo...

70 1/2 Year Old Face Lift, Eye Lift, Laser, and Temple Lift

It took me 20 years to convince my husband that I was serious about wanting plastic surgery. In earlier years, I was a model, and as I saw the demons of age creeping in, it got to the point that I hated having to look in the mirror to put make up on each day. In my world, where I have become the... READ MORE

Unfortunate Facelift. now fixed. Wish the old doctor well and hope he is doing better in his life.

I knew this doctor from social circles between Munich and Salzburg. HIs father is a very well known plastic surgeon who is a kind man and aided his son in a previous liposuction surgery on me that did turn out well (no noticeable scarring, indentations, etc ) - so after that experience, I...

45 That Had Bag Acne Sacrs

Been very self conscious for over 15 years with acne scars , when looking in the mirror and I am so very glad that I decided to have this and able to have this done. They did laser and put fat under my eyes and in my lips now that I am 45. Over it was worth it and I'd tell anyone to go here to... READ MORE

worst results

The pictures included are a final product of Dr. McHugh’s facelift surgery. I was left with these very disappointing and uncomfortable results after an expensive procedure. After having more than 7 minor procedures in the office, Dr. McHugh told me he would correct his errors but I would h... READ MORE

8/17 Facelift, Upper/Lower Bleph, Laser around mouth and maybe Fat Transfer, not sure on that yet....

I can't look anymore, I can look straight ahead and talk myself into something, but that mirror or reflection continues to baffle me, who is that woman? It is not me, its not how I feel, it doesn't portray who I am inside. I live in a very secluded area on an island. I need to travel to the... READ MORE

I Am 68 Years Old and Received a Face Lift, Upper and Lower Eye Lift, and Cheek Fat Injection - Newport News, VA

I decided to have a face lift because I really became tired of looking at my wrinkles and my sagging neck. I was very critical of pictures of myself and depending on how the lighting was in a room sometimes looking in the mirror was unpleasant. I had my eyes done because I always had dark... READ MORE

Facelift Failure

I had a lower face lift 5 years ago in Portland. I am very unhappy with the results. I was really looking forward to having a better looking jaw line and neck but the results look more like puckering of the skin under my chin. It is so obvious that I had work done and it looks horrible. My... READ MORE

60 (Now 61) & Looking Very Tired - Minneapolis, MN

I had been thinking about a facelift for several years, but at 60 yrs old, I decided it was now or never. I work out, hike, & am very active. But my face & neck screamed "old". I was self concious anytime my neck was exposed, and I live in AZ....so that was basically every day. I... READ MORE

Wanted the Face of the Person I Felt Like... Not the one for my Age (61) - Tonbridge, Kent

I have been looking at different procedures and surgeons to perform that on me. It has taken a few years to come to the point of having it done. When I saw Amir's pioneering 'Concept' Face lift it was the one for me!!! along with the neck lift too. Without any doubt what so ever. The procedure... READ MORE

Nov 14 coming up so soon! Always hated to have my picture taken so have to have my roomie (a photographer like myself) take some for the site.

Worst Decision I've Ever Made

All I wanted out of this was a neckline again. I knew liposuction would not be enough for me. My local doctor charges $9,000 for a neck lift, so $6,900 for a full face lift sounded pretty good to me! I paid an extra $3500 for a breast lift, and I was told I needed to stay at Pat's recovery... READ MORE

Just Turning 64 and Ready to Take the Plunge.

After I have been reading reviews on Real Self for approximately 1 1/2 years I decided to get some consults from 3 different Doc's. I decided on the Doc that did facial work only. After discussion with all 3 Doc's I decided to do brow lift, face lift and fat transfer. The browlift was an... READ MORE

52, Face Looks So Miserable and Tired Reflecting Tough Times, Maybe Facelift/lower Lid Lift/botox the Answer? - Belgium

I have a facelift etc booked with the straight-talking Dr Oelbrandt at the Singelberg Clinic, Belgium. I've had one consultation with him (after reading positive reviews of his work on various sites) - I liked him because he wasn't pushy at all, seemed (brutally) honest and suggested... READ MORE
