Hi Shiela, thanks for being frank about your reasons for wanting cosmetic surgery. Many patients experience a psychological improvement from a face lift. They believe that the surgery will have a positive effect on their quality of life. And more often than not, it does make a difference in their lives. Improving your facial appearance through a face lift is just as valid as someone having their home repainted, or trading in their old car for a newer model. Improving your facial appearance can be a big psychological boost to improve your appearance. With new confidence in your appearance, it will be easier to make a new start. Sags, bags, jowls, a sagging neck, even what they call a turkey neck – these can be addressed by a face lift. But fine lines won’t be improved by a face lift – the quality of the skin is not expected to be changed by a facelift.
