The mini lift goes by many names — think of the Lifestyle Lift, for example — but the goal is the same: get the results of a traditional facelift in less time for less money. LEARN MORE â€º

Pre surgery visit was to the point, with all questions answered. Dr John Tate reported he averages one lift a week. This week he has three. He did is fellowship in plastics. His primary practice is ENT in Lebanon Tennessee (approx 30 mins from downtown Nashville).Pre surgery visit was to the... READ MORE

Though I have been able to delay aging the last 8 years with the use of botox, fillers and various laser treatments my cheeks and jawline continued to sag and show my age. I was told that since I had minimal aging in my neck, and not much loose skin I was not really a good candidate for a... READ MORE

I had been looking to smooth out my neck and jowls 5 years ago but a Baltimore plastic surgeon said there was little that could be done for a saggy neck! Boy, was he wrong!! I was lucky to find Dr Pontell online near Philadelphia and he performed a "Mini Facelift". This was the best 53rd... READ MORE

I can honestly say, I've lived a blessed life and I’m even excited about the prospect of turning 50 years old later this year. While I don't need a major overhaul, I’ve always known, the time for me to address facial/neck sagging would be before it garnered enough momentum to drastically cha... READ MORE

Since menopause my face changed quickly with jowls and loose skin on my neck giving me a little "waddle". I've had a few people recently think my (younger) husband is my son. That didn't used to happen. So, I'm having a mini face lift to look more like "me"...a younger me! Thank you to those... READ MORE

I just want to start off by saying teens, 20's I never thought at 28 I'd be seeing changes with my face, aging signs this early. I've been a long distance runner my whole life, lean and less then a hundred pounds. Burned through most of my subcutaneous fat layer. Going through pregnancy and it... READ MORE

Dr. Lee did my first "lifestyle lift" in 2009 and I was very pleased with the results. So, as a present to myself on my 67th birthday, I went back to him for a "touch-up". He actually did 4 procedures - a mini-face lift, some tightening at the temples, removal of the buccal fat pads to give my... READ MORE

Today is 2nd after surgery. I would say the pain get's to a 6 at times but with pain meds its like a 2. I can't see my results yet. My face/neck area is wrapped tightly. I have 2 drains on each side. They will come out today. I had this surgery to improve serious acne scars On my cheeks that had... READ MORE

Anyone who needs advice on out of the country can ask me and i hope to get a lot of feedback too! I am having a lot of success with at home peels... READ MORE

I started using fillers around 35 and botox around 33. At first i was addicted! I thought this is great im never going to look old and then 39 hit and my entire face just seemed to fall off. It seemed like it happened overnight. I woke up one morning and didnt recognize the old saggy neck lady... READ MORE

I need a highly-skilled doctor to do this job as I do a lot of public speaking. I wanted to get rid of jowls, help some facial scaring and lift my heavy face. I was very picky about my surgeon and came to the USA because of the lack of regulation in Europe as many general doctors are performing... READ MORE

I am biting the bullet and having a mini-facelift. I have been one of those people who has always had the genetic luck of looking younger than my age, but I have noticed in the last few years that my jowls have really become unattractive. I have tried the liquid face lift using Juvederm, but... READ MORE

Like most others, It took a couple of years of filler injections to realize that I just needed to go ahead and get a more permanent surgical solution. After weight loss and general aging, I needed a lift. Consulted with 2 surgeons who felt I didn't need a lift "yet". If it bothers me ...I need... READ MORE

I had been contemplating doing something about looking tired for a while....then I participated in a video conference for work and this really old/tired lady was looking back at me...and it was me! The same day I saw my face on a video screen while going through TSA. That was enough for me to... READ MORE

Hello all you RealSelf ladies out there! After much debating, arguing with myself back and forth, I decided it was time to deal withy hereditary saggy jowls, lax neck, and deep lip wrinkles. One day I looked in the mirror and said OMG - who is that person! An epiphany I know many of you have... READ MORE

I live in Key West and we didn't have any options for cosmetic surgeries. So when I heard about Dr Loessin's arrival in our community, I was very excited. I did my research and then I went in for my consultation. He was amazing, he was so attentive and patient. He answered all of my... READ MORE

I've been lurking for months, learning so much that I felt compelled to write my own story. Why facial work? A bad picture. It happened at X-mas time; my sisters met me at the airport; one dressed as Santa Claus and the other holding a camera. I laughed uproariously at my sister's 'Ho Ho'... READ MORE

I really wasn't as nervous as I think many people are going into this surgery. I had my eyes done by Dr. Nayak 6 years ago and I was 100percent satisfied with the results. So with just a tiny but of trepidation, I went in on Dec. 4th. First of all, everything about Dr. Nayak's office is clean... READ MORE

I reviewed Dr. Rotitori last year when he did my eyelid/bag surgery....and after such great results I totally trusted him to "repair my face"! I cannot begin to express how awesome this man and his entire staff has been throughout my entire ordeal. It's only been a week, stitches come out... READ MORE

Looking in the mirror, I didn't like at all what I saw. Following surgery, a week had past, the results came out better than I had even dreamed. I did have a neck lift too, that was not counted in the total. Dr. Nayak and staff are fantastic, his quality of work surpasses everyone in his... READ MORE
