Considering a facelift

Considering a facelift

Postby meow23 » Mon Oct 17, 2016 10:44 am


I am considering having a facelift and I would love to hear anyone's story! How long were you considering surgery before you got it? I've been thinking about it for a few years now. Did you have any concerns about recovery and how long did it take for you to recover? I think that's my main worry. And lastly, were you happy with the results, would you say it is worth the money/ pain?

Thank you :D

Also if you have any before and after photos or just any photos you would like to share, that would be great!

Hi Meow!
I got a mini-lift about 2 years ago. Different doctors call it different, cutesy names. But it's all the same.
Like you, I had thought about it for several years and gotten consults along the way. I finally decided to get the mini. I'm regretting that decision. I'm not regretting the facelift. I just wish I would have spent more money on a full face-lift. The mini doesn't address the neck. I didn't think I had a problem, and maybe I didn't before, but it's pretty obvious to me now. I still got the same scars as a full lift, the same downtime, give or take a few days and the same discomfort. And I got a pixie ear. :cry:
So, don't be tempted by doctors who offer gimmicky procedures that save money and are supposed to be more minimal. Get a reputable doctor and make sure you're addressing all your concerns.
Also - beware of before and after photos. Everyone looks fantastic the first 6 months out because they're swollen and therefore tighter. You'll see a picture with a tag that exclaims how wonderful the person looks after just one week or 3 weeks, or whatever. It's more useful to see a picture of someone a year or two out, after the swelling is down and when you'd expect scars to fade.
