i had a neck/face lift two years ago.

i'm very pleased/happy with my neck. Not so happy about my face.☹️

left side is nice and firm/toned - right side has excess skin, not firm/toned

doc said i look eight years younger - that response to me is terrible

couldn't even say 10 yrs younger because he knew it wasn't true - thus saying

eight years he felt "safer" anyway you look at it, i don't think facelift was successful

i still feel/look as cute as a button!!😉


You are as cute as a button. The neck is the age definer on women. That's the thing that kills us!

I think you look great but it's about what makes you happy.

My face has softened up some because of weight loss and will continue to soften up as the swelling goes down. We've already identified areas that need tweaking. However, I choose not to. This is fine. It was about all of the extra skin on my neck in the beginning. Tat is gone!!!! It evolved into a bit more than I'd initially thought about. To me, everything above the neck was just icing on the cake! I just wanted to look good for my age. I got the bonus of looking a few years younger. This won't last forever. In another decade, I'll be at the "good" end of looking exactly my age, I suspect. That will be just fine.

We all have to look at ourselves every day. We don't do this for the world, we do it for us.

What can you live with? What can't you? Right? :)

Oh Goody, I am old but since weight losing it is looking GOOD, IDK why this is, but I shall accept it for all it is worth!

I think you look fabulous. I'm going to be blunt and ask about cost. How much did the blerpharoplasy and lift cost?

I don’t know why I can’t see my answer to your question about cost but I’ll answer again.

With the lower blepharoplasty the total was somewhere between $17k. My memory is fuzzy. I seem to recall I could have gotten away with $15k for just neck/face lift or paid $19 for lift with upper and lower blepharoplasty.

      Getting a little nervous about post surgery life adaptation. I really want to succeed, but habits are so hard to break.

      Good news and Meh news...
      Meh: so I think I experienced/am experiencing my first stall-ish since surgery and now I get how frustrating it can be!  So annoying to wake up every morning to watch the scale report a gain or loss of the same 1.5 pounds for over 2 weeks.  *sigh*.  Some say put the scale away, but I log my weight every morning to get a daily moving average of my weight.  So long as this moving average is not heading upwards (which it isn’t and hasn’t since post-op) then I am good with my curent “minimalist” weekly weight loss rate, however small I think it is 🙄.
      The Good news:
      To allow for some self back patting, and to remind myself of the bigger picture, I set a bunch of interim goals/milestones... a few of which are 10lbs increment weight loss goals:
      So this morning, after hovering within 1.5 pounds of an interim goal for over 2 weeks, I weighed in at 164.8, and officially lost 70 lbs!  In 4 months.  That is 30% of my starting body weight.  Or the equivalent of my 10 year old neice. How crazy is that.
      Next Goal: weigh in at 162lbs to be merely overweight (and not obese!)

      I am in the Pre-Op stage.  I have 4 more nutrition classes to go to.  I've had my endoscopy with favorable results although I was told I had an abnormal z-line.  Everything looks good so far.  Had my team appointment with the psychologist and have my pulmonologist  this week.  I chose the sleeve
