I just thought I'd share an experience that I haven't seen posted on realself. I had disappointing news today after a consult with a very good facial plastic surgeon. He told me I was not a good candidate for a face lift because my skin lacked elasticity, and the lift would only last a few months. That and some medical history made it risky for me. It was a little less than devastating but still shattered my hopes for a better appearance. A consult with a different surgeon a few weeks prior was very different. He was ready to proceed and did not give me honest information about the possible outcome. I was not comfortable with him, so I wasn't going to go back to him anyway. Quite a difference to have a doctor give me very honest, though painful, feedback. I'll take the good doctor's advice and get chemical peels and take it from there.
