A lower facelift addresses wrinkles and sagging skin on the bottom third of the face. The procedure removes excess skin, tightens the underlying muscles, and improves the contour of the jawline. While the procedure won't deliver the effects of a full facelift, benefits included a shorter scar and a quicker recovery time. This procedure can also be called a mini facelift.

Three of the five were good, but I had to make the decision to go with the physician that seemed to... READ MORE

63 Years Old, Just Retired, and I Cannot Stand Looking in the Mirror. - Bethesda, MD

I had a lap band placed in 2013 and lost 30 pounds, which was not enough - I was supposed to lose 70 pounds - but it was enough to cause an awful "turkey neck."

My pics

On a tight budget, I saved up to get rid of my sagging jowls by age 60. (Who knew I would also be facing divorce, hopefully by age 60 as well). If I could afford it I'd do a few more procedures, such as a BA and temporal eyebrow lift, but at least this will do for now. I want a very natural... READ MORE
