The Continuum of Beauty: After Nonsurgical Procedures, It Was Time for Me to Consider a Facelift
Sarah maintained an active lifestyle through sports, fitness classes and keeping up with her grandchildren. Her reflection in the mirror told a different story –she felt younger than she looked, and wasn’t happy with what she saw in the mirror.
She consulted with her plastic surgeon who’d performed nonsurgical procedures on her in the past. “My doctor handed me a mirror and asked me to point out what areas were bothering me. This included my neck, jowls, the corner of my eyes, and even my nose was looking bigger,” explains Sarah.
After consulting with her board-certified plastic surgeon, she decided to undergo a facelift. This is a comprehensive approach to treating facial wrinkles and sagging by removing excess skin and tightening the underlying tissue and muscles.
“We decided to accomplish the entire procedure in one seating. This took about six hours; however, prior to surgery my doctor reassured me that I would be fine being under anesthesia for that long,” explained Sarah.
Immediately after the surgery, she had drains coming out of her face.
“Five days later I was out with a big hat having lunch with a friend and then two weeks later, I was out at dancing at a party, even with stitches in and no one asked what I had done. I’m thrilled with my results!” she exclaimed.
