Why a Face Lift

How to avoid the over done look of the stars.

While a face lift is intended to address loose and sagging skin by drawing it in for a more firm and youthful appearance it can resulting in that obviously shocking appearance.  The method of tightening the sagging muscle tissue is done by tightening the attached muscles of the skin by surgically moving and rearranging this tissue.  Optimally patients want to get their faces back to the way they once were.

What is Quick Lift Facelift?

What exactly is a quick lift?

A quick lift is a face lift of a gentler nature.  An s shape incision is made at the beginning of the side burn moving along the earlobe up into the hairline in the direction of the nape.  This procedure is very carefully done to achieve inconspicuous evidence of the surgical procedure by a minimal scar line.

The muscle tissue or connective tissue of the face is lifted and tightened by way of a technique referred to as a double purse-string suture giving instant lift to the jaw line and upper neck.  This procedure makes for  long lasting results more so than facial dermal procedures.  

There is redundant skin that is in need of being removed, the incision is then closed having eliminated the sagging skin.  A magnification process is used to produce the most optimal closure, reducing any visible scarring.

In more intense cases a tuck procedure is performed called a submental tuck which also addresses advanced sagging of the upper neck.  Liposuction is performed on the neck and jowl area to finish out the quick lift procedure.

Exactly, They never wondered or asked about my age till my recently car accident, going to the pharmacy to get medications they ask your birth date to verify the correct person gets the correct prescription one day my youngest daughter was with me, quickly did the math, once we walked away from the counter she said Mom. " what the heck, you've got the wrong date on your medical records" I said, "what do you mean" she replied, " you're not +&" to that I said, "yes I am" the argument continued till we got home and she enlisted her older sister who sided with her, there's no way. Their complete shock went on for days as they listed the parents, "you mean your the same age as... or older than... and on and on lol this convinced me they truly believed me to be 10 years younger than I was. We joke about it today and they insist I keep my age to myself because they think it's cool having a hot young Mom, lol too funny! DO THE EXERCISES! it works.

The only draw back is I would have had to be a very young teen Mom...YIKES!

Believe your daughters. Yes, daughters are brutally honest. When you ask do I look fat in this dress, they'll tell the truth! They're probably the only people in the world who will.

lol I guess we are our own worse critics. I have a theory. I think people lie about how old they say you are and how old they think you are right? I never guess a persons age because I don't lie. But those who do I assume like are people pleasers and probably lie by oh I don't know 5 years or so, what do you think? People often guess me to be 10 to 15 years younger than I am, so I'm thinking maybe I look 5 years younger than I am. But my kids tell me I look 10 years younger than I am and they are brutally honest so maybe I do... Anyway I'm thinking we can figure we can assume we do look at least five years younger than we are...maybe 9

I'm starting my exercises today. I look younger than my age too. Someone guessed my age to be 15 years younger yesterday, but when I look in the mirror I see my grandma staring back at me. Hey! Maybe it is my grandma.

I think I would have no problems whats so every having the quick lift. Its a kinder more gentler procedure. Besides I look pretty good for my age now so I'm thinking they may not need to do to much extensive work. I def will have a quick lift. Probably by the time I'm fifty or so depending how I hold up, why not right?

Angel on 03/06/2012

Wow... this seems scary. I might have to think twice before doing it. BUT... you know how I am.... I tend to do crazy things and I would not put this past me as I get older! LOL..
