Skin Care Review: Lower Face Lift

by Senia Fix


The face lift took 20 years off my appearance after the swelling subsided.

The recovery was horrible due to the bruising and excessive swelling as well as pain.

The lower face lift I had is something that I will never regret. I had it done when I was 53 and now that I'm 64 I still look 10 years younger than my true age. However, that is easy to say now that it is past me. If I had to do it a second time, would I do it? No way! The pain, swelling, bruising and depression that ensued right after the surgery was beyond my imagining. When I was taken into the bathroom and they let me look at my face in the mirror, I fainted. I looked like a truck had run over my face, and I felt like it too. It took two months before I looked normal and the embarassment of having people see me for two months looking like a monster was more than I could bare to experience ever again. Over 10 years later I still have horrible scars in front of and behind my ears. I cannot push my hair back or cut it short ever. As I said, in retrospect I don't regret it, but I do not want to do it a second time. There are less invasive and noninvasive procedures that, while they do not yield as much of a positive result as surgery, produce enough of an improvement that I am happy with the change.

Try less invasive procedures first.
