... husband last year and felt much aged by the process. Like you, not looking to recapture youth, however, just to look better. I think if I had just done the lower facelift and maybe laser resurfacing I would have been feeling better much more quickly. ... (13 replies)
... It's a strange journey, isn't it? I'm feeling better at 5-1/2 weeks and felt like I turned a corner in how I looked at about 4 weeks. You're so right about wait and see game. That's a great way to put it. Honestly, I can't believe how weird my face still feels and it sounds like that's gonna last a long, long time. I do a lot of meditation which is probably the only time I... (6 replies)

... Thank you SO much for taking the time to respond. I can't tell you how helpful it is to read other people's experiences; thank you for adding your thoughts. My main takeaway from all this is that the surgeons don't prepare you for the realities of recovery. They probably wouldn't "sell" as many procedures if they did! AAR, I'm about 5-1/2 weeks out and definitely much... (6 replies)

There is significant scarring and hair loss as well. I am just glad it is in the past. Wouldn't do it again. ... (19 replies)
... all. I will call the nurse and inform her of this, and they will prescribe more of the Vicodin. I didn't want to become addicted to this drug, and before this facelift surgery was down to only 1 pill for back pain. So it's been frustrating. ... (19 replies)
... The stitches I have are not dissolving. I have very hard knots the size of bb's along the suture lines. I also have pain when I touch various areas and the numbness continues, though one ear seems to be gradually coming to.

Either it really did the... (5 replies)
