Early 50s, Sagging of Lower Face - Richmond, VA

One year ago, I had Ultherapy instead of what I really needed - a mini lift. For me, Ultherapy was a waste of time and money which yielded zero results.
I just had my lift (lower face and neck tuck and a little lipo under chip) four days ago so still swollen (more on one side than the other) and bruised but I expect to be very pleased with the results. No real pain, just can't lay down so sleep has been only in short naps. Hubby is taking good care of me but we are both plain bored. I'm not a TV-watcher and have now watched anything I may have had a remote interest in and plenty of crap I wasn't interested in out of boredom. I'm starting to see improvement and can't wait for swelling to diminish.

One week Post Op - mini lift and neck lift

Well, I'm one week PO and feel my bruising isn't too bad. Much of it is already fading. The bruise on chin is from a little lipo the doctor did there. At my first post op dr appt, he took out 1/2 the stitches and replaced with skin-colored tape and skin glue (?). I'll go back in four days to have the remaining stitches checked and, hopefully, removed. There wasn't any real pain and feel the outcome will be everything I had imagined. I never really experienced any weepiness or second thoughts as some patients mentioned, just anxious to be back to a normal routine. I feel okay, just trouble sleeping since they still want me to sleep upright for another week or two. Ugh. Sleeping upright is not fun or easy but it supposed to help with swelling and bruising. Perhaps I was a bit 'out of it' for the first few days, probably due to lack of sleep but never had trouble walking around the house, dressing, etc. Recovery has been easy but boring, which isn't really a complaint.
