I decided to treat myself to a facelift as a personal gift to myself. I wanted to look the way I feel, vibrant and young at heart, so I had a lower face lift with fat injections around my cheeks and under my eyes. Long story short, it has been just under a year, and it is remarkable how great I look and, surprisingly, I look even better from one week to the next! The swell of compliments started at around 3-4 weeks, and they just keep coming from family, friends and strangers alike. I even had a registered nurse comment that she has seen a lot of work in her profession, and rarely has she seen work as great and as natural looking as mine. I should point out that while I have had great results, I did (and still do) contend with itching behind my ears, but the compliments I regularly receive trump the discomfort. I remind myself that complete healing takes time, and if I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't hesitate.
