It has been almost 2 1/2 years since I took the plunge and finally had the shape of my nose changed. Every day I look in the mirror and just cannot believe it- It seems to look even better as the time goes on! Friends still tell me "It's so amazing what they did for you!" I've been meaning to write a testimonial now for about a year. Since my surgery in March 2010, I have never been more happy with the way my face has looked...


A rhytidectomy, more commonly known as a facelift, is simply a surgical procedure designed to minimize signs of aging visible on the face and neck. Sagging cheeks, neck and jowls make a person appear older than he or she is or feels. Loose skin under the chin, displaced pockets of fat, and loss of muscle tone betray one’s age. Facelift surgery can turn back the clock.

Many different techniques are used by surgeons to smooth skin, lift features and tighten underlying tissues. Any non-smoker in good general health who desires to look younger and has realistic goals and expectations regarding the results can gain from a facelift procedure. Some patients choose to undergo a full lower facelift or a triplane lift, targeting multiple areas all at once, while others prefer a mini facelift to treat the cheeks, neck or midface separately.

In comparison to non-surgical procedures, a facelift generally lasts considerably longer, up to 8-12 years.  As an added benefit, a facelift can be performed in conjunction with other restorative surgery, such as a brow lift, blepharoplasty (cosmetic eyelid surgery) or skin resurfacing. But the best part of a facelift is how the person feels after its successful completion.

Recovery From Endoscopic Surgery

Recovery From Endoscopic Surgery

Recovering From an Endoscopic Brow LiftPlastic surgery has become significantly safer, gentler, and more effective for patients in the last few decades, allowing more people to fit rejuvenation procedures into their busy schedules.  While all plastic surgery involves some type of downtime, recovery periods have gotten shorter and less intense, thanks to improvements in technique and technology. One surgical innovation that has made its way to plastic surgery is the endoscope, a device that helps make brow lift surgery less invasive than it once was.
