It seems I started aging overnight, last 3 yrs(?); having a long illness took a toll. But I want to have my outside match my younger inside self :) My eyes look tired and the jowls and neck area really age me. And so I've been roaming this site forever. I've read many reviews and stories,... READ MORE

I'm generally a very positive, energetic person. I'm a retired makeup artist (head of training for a luxe cosmetic company), so I've personally seen thousands of women's faces and many of them shared their experiences of plastic surgery with me. I've never been opposed to that kind of thing. I... READ MORE

I am scheduled for a SMAS (mini) facelift in two days. I am a little nervous for the general anesthesia and the aftermath surgery pain. However, I am excited, too. My goal is to lift the lower and mid face. I am starting to look like my mother! I don't care about looking 25 again. I just want a... READ MORE

At 66 years of age, I decided it was the right time for a facelift. I had the upper/lower blepharoplasty (eyelid) in December 2013, and was pleased with the results. My PS followed up with me from that surgery for a full year, and I began discussing the possibility of a facelift at some point.... READ MORE

I was 52 years old looking for a refreshed appearance to keep me in the work force longer, and to have the redundant skin and dark circles around my eyes improved. Was not all that interested in having the facelift, but my sister suggested that my neck could be greatly improved upon. A SMAS,... READ MORE

I never considered ever having a facelift before I started reading all the reviews on Real Self. So, let me thank all of you now for giving me the courage to go through with this. I've scheduled my SMAS ON 9-10-15. Thats all I'm having done, no laser, no eye lift…(not that i don't need all of t... READ MORE

I had a complete face lift done by Doctor Koelliker in March of this year 2012. It is now November of 2012 and I get nothing but compliments on the way I look by people who know me and people who do not know me at all. My reason for going through this surgery was very simply that I wanted to... READ MORE

I set up my facelift, neck lift and blepharoplasty in November 2014 with Dr. Fernando Guerrerosantos to be done on Jan 13, 2014. I found Dr. Guerrerosantos by doing my research here on I was happy with the other reviews I found here and my other research on him. I sent him current... READ MORE

I have been reading reviews on this site for well over a year. After chickening out several times I decided to just go for it. I had only been reviewing MACS lifts so I don't quite know how I agreed to having a full face and neck lift performed. I'm in my mid forties and it was my double chin... READ MORE

I'm set for thee 25th of Sept. I'm nervous, never had surgery and not a big fan of IVs or needles. That said, I lost a ton of weight about 9 years ago and have a somewhat droopy face. I'm getting a face lift. The basic smas, incisions around and within the ears. No neck lift or forehead lift. My... READ MORE

I always joked I would have a facelift and hoped someone in my family would become a plastic surgeon! No such luck : ) Anyway at 58 I decided this was something I really wanted to do (just for me). My face seemed to be sliding to the south pole. In fact I hold my head up to compensate for the... READ MORE

Today is the day. I go in at 10 am for my procedures. I have been researching, reading, and researching so more for about 2 years now. I consulted with 6 top OC plastic surgeons and have decided to go with Dr Timothy Miller of Aliso Viejo, Ca. Double board certified in plastics, and he ONLY... READ MORE

I am at a very good place in my life and decided that this was the year I wanted to undergo some major cosmetic procedures to help me feel as good on the outside as I do on the inside and help keep my aging skin in good condition. I elected to do my face first, so this review is of my 360... READ MORE

After 2 years of research I was very fortunate to have found Dominic Bray, who performed my SMAS facelift, lower & upper Bleph , lipo under my chin and Brow lift. My journey with Dominic started in May 2014 and almost one year later thought I would share my final before & after photos with you.... READ MORE

At my age it was getting to be time to do something about the jowls and hollowness in my face. I chose a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. I did not want to take any chances with my face.I had a SMAS facelift about 1 1/2 week ago and I have 2 deep indentations on each side of my face. I've never... READ MORE

I am 53 years old and it's been about 10 years since I've had a neck. No amount of working out on the treadmill, bicycle and weight machines improved the appearance of my flabby gullet. My age never bothered me, crows feet never caused concern but my droopy neck and jowls made me cringe. I... READ MORE

I've had lots of work done in my life...nose, eyes, breasts (twice)...but this face lift (SMAS) and neck lift at age 58 (Feb. 20th, 2013) has been the hardest yet.
