Like a facelift, a mini lift addresses wrinkles and sagging skin on the face. The primary difference is that it's intended to address the cheeks and jowls specifically, and not the upper face. While the procedure won't deliver the effects of a full facelift, benefits included a shorter scar and a quicker recovery time. LEARN MORE ›

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 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

Overall, I'm not worried about how I am aging...I almost always am told I look younger than my age, but my neck in the last few years is telling a different story, and it has bothered me. I'm getting remarried in October of this year, to a man I have known since I was 14 years old and there is... READ MORE

After many months of debating, attempting a poor interim thread facelift and removal after a couple of weeks, I've booked a mini lift! Early days for me in sharing but on the back of a painfully brutal thread lift, I have investigated 3 cosmetic surgeons to help me correct my lower face lines.... READ MORE

I am 71 and had facial surgery 15 years ago. Never eyes . I decided I wanted to not look tired, get rid of bags and jowls, and make neck look better. I wanted to be a cleaned up me. I didn't want my lips spread over my face and made it clear to Dr. Lickstein I wanted to look like me only better! READ MORE

I have always had a fat face even though I am thin. As I have gotten older, I am 52, I started looking like a bulldog - uuuggg. So I went to see Dr. Bernard Shuster about a mini-lift. I also had breast augmentation (review in another post). He suggested some lipo along my jaw and juvederm... READ MORE

. . .but you could. I was referred to Dr. Rotatori in 2008 when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Although my cancer was in only one breast, I opted to have a bilateral mastectomy in order to avoid the risk of a recurrence in my other breast and to achieve symmetry after reconstruction. Yes,...

I was tired of looking in the mirror and seeing someone I know longer recognized so I contacted the Center for Cosmetic Surgery. I had excess skin on my neck (turkey neck) and had tried expensive creams and exercises but to no avail so I resolved to have it fixed. I was intimidated about the... READ MORE

I saw Dr. Andrew Campbell for a mini-face lift procedure. I found his staff to be personable and his office processes efficient. The procedure was done under local anesthesia which saved me in cost substantially. Numbing procedure was with MINIMAL discomfort. I looked great right after the... READ MORE

My motivation was simple; I wanted to look like I felt inside, very youthful and full of life! I am very active. I teach middle school. My face reflected a person that was much older. I also looked very tired. I knew that the only way to fix this problem was to find a competent surgeon. I... READ MORE
