A Face Lift procedure is the one complete, permanent way to counteract the effects of aging on facial skin, notably in the form of wrinkles, sagging skin, dark under eye circles, large pores, and age spots. A plastic surgeon is able to customize a surgical plan to tighten loose skin and bring a sculptured, more youthful appearance to the face.

Face-Lift surgery is as popular as it's ever been, and anyone who's ever undergone the procedure has an opinion on the results they experienced. We're constantly gathering new, insightful Face Lift reviews and ratings from real customers, with the intention of helping you get a sense for what the procedure entails.

"I had a face life and it was really a walk in the park. I had had work done years ago at a now defunct place and thought I'd go through the roof with the numbing shots. This procedure was nothing like that. Recovery for me was painless, very, very little bruising because of starting with Arnicare Montana 4 days before instead of 2 and using the Arnicare gel daily.

"I am 60 and have had two facelifts and a chin implant. It’s been 3 weeks since my second facelift and when I look in the mirro now I feel like I’m looking at myself 15 years ago.

"There were some drawbacks, but despite that I look quite good. To anyone thinking about getting a facelift, be prepared for some changes that you might not be expecting. One year after my facelift, one side of my face feels a little tighter than the other, the scars are visible (though concealer helps), and due to the nature of my face my already unsymmetrical cheekbones are even more pronounced.

"I had a couple of procedures done when I was 45 - facelift, browlift, and a little lipo. Now I’m in my 50’s, but look like I’m in my 40’s, even without makeup. I feel like I’m young again, and I love it. If I ever feel like I need to do it again, I won’t hesitate. BUT – don’t think that this isn’t a serious procedure. They put me under general anesthesia for five hours, and it was almost a month before I felt comfortable going out. My skin is pretty sensitive, but even so, the side effects … Read More" - Submitted by Julie B.
