How happy are people with their mini facelift results?
I've never had any cosmetic procedures because I was against it my entire life. I had many preconceptions and thought everyone having plastic surgery would end up looking very fake. Lately, I met a few people who had cosmetic surgery done, and I didn't even notice before they told me. This made me reconsider everything, and I even thought about looking into a procedure myself. That's why I'm writing this thread, I want to know if people who have had a mini facelift would recommend this surgery? I appreciate your input!
I know how you feel. Contrary to all the facts, a small part of me always felt like plastic surgery was somehow wrong. Even though I had never shown any real interest in it, I got talked into the procedure by my kids as a Mother's Day present one year. I had some excess skin in my neck and just looked worn out all the time. I am very glad I decided to go along with it. I really do feel much more comfortable in my own skin now. I think you just have to look at the facts. There are no significant risks associated with the procedure, and the end result will be beneficial for you, physically and mentally. Just be aware, though, it is not as much of a "weekend" procedure as they would like you to think. There will be at least a couple weeks of downtime. Your face will have bruising and you do experience some pain post procedure, but you are given pain medication.
I had a mini facelift done, and I'm one of those people that you're describing with natural looking results. The treatment gave me a complete facial rejuvenation by lifting my jowls and reducing the appearance of wrinkles around my lower face. I look years younger, which was my goal. It's important to choose an experienced surgeon who will take their time and use their expertise to conceal the incisions. My incisions are hidden in discrete areas, and I'm thrilled with the results!
Ask your doctor to show you before and after photos from previous patients. You may even be able to get financing options and make payments on the procedure. That's what I chose to do, and I couldn't be happier making the monthly payments because it made the treatment affordable for me. I feel better about myself, and I highly recommend the mini facelift to friends who ask me what I do to stay looking so young.
It's been 2 months since my mini facelift, and I am very pleased with the results. This lift focuses on the lower face, which is where I had the most sagging. I had jowls instead of jaws, and the turkey neck was becoming more prominent by the day. Now I don't hide from the mirror or fear venturing outside without makeup or topical skin tightening potions, which I spend thousands on before the surgery. I went back to work within a week of having the facelift surgery with just a little bit of swelling. So, unless you have severe problems with upper part of your face, the mini lift is an excellent way to get your confidence back.
Many people fear the mini facelift procedure because what could go wrong sticks out in their minds rather than the vast majority of successful cases. I strongly recommend doing research to weigh the positive outcomes against the negative ones.
I spent some time online doing a lot of research online before making the decision to have a mini facelift. I found an experienced, reputable plastic surgeon and read a lot of reviews from past patients about their mini facelifts. Part of the reason I choose my doctor is because everyone raved about their results. Having had the surgical procedure done myself, I thoroughly understood why they are pleased. I had my mini facelift three months ago and love the results. The procedure lifted my sagging skin and eliminated a lot of my wrinkles. I was also happy with my recovery time. Would I recommend having a mini facelift? I definitely would. However, I will say that results may vary.
I was unhappy with the wrinkles and sagging skin that I was beginning to see. I wanted to try to do something about signs of aging before they got worse. I was considering getting a neck lift and/or a mini facelift but ended up deciding on the latter. Because I understood the impact of this decision, I did a lot of research on the procedure. I looked online at a lot of before and afters of facelift patients. I also made sure that I went to a reputable surgeon that had experience performing this procedure.
I knew what I wanted from the procedure and had realistic expectations. I wanted tighter skin along my jawline, the elimination of my jowls, and a more refreshed look. That is exactly what I got. It did take a while, almost a year, to see the final results from the cosmetic surgery, but I already knew that. I look years younger and couldn't be happier.
