Like a facelift, a mini lift addresses wrinkles and sagging skin on the face. The primary difference is that a mini lift targets the cheeks and jowls, 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 ›

My husband called Dr. lane at 4am because we had to cut the wrap near my throat so I could breathe. ... READ MORE

Mini Facelift and Fat Transfer

About a year or so ago I noticed that people started asking me what was wrong. I looked disgruntled and tired when actually I felt fine and happy. If I'm not smiling I look so crabby. Last August I had a ruptured implant so I had my 30 year old boobs lifted and replaced my 36G to a 36D. I chose... READ MORE

I Really Did This!!! -Pittsburgh, PA

Forever, I have tried to compensate for the fat pad under my chin. In high school I recall stretching my neck as if I was intent in conversation, lol.

Too Soon to Tell...I guess

Went in for a upper and lower bleph and neck lift. Came out without the lower bleph as the DR stated that I was bleeding too much too risk it. And I appreciate that, of course!

Great for 3 Years then Starts to Fall -Munster, IN

It was very much worth it, but I suggest a S lift maybe every 5 years as after 3 years it starts to slowly fall back to where it originally was. I paid 2500 cash in Chicago area. The place is no longer in business or I would go back and ask for some kind of touch up now looking to do it again :) READ MORE
