Why This Woman Got a Facelift—And Couldn't Be Happier
By Elise Minton Tabin , Executive Beauty Editor |
“I had a mini-facelift with fat transfer as well as a necklift, lip enhancement, injections of Restylane and Juvderm, microdermabrasion and Fraxel (done by Houston plastic surgeon Henry Mentz, MD) and am so glad I did. I started to feel like I looked aged, and I knew I had to do something about it.

During my consultation with my doctor, we discussed options for surgery as well as post-surgery procedures. We decided that a facelift would be the best procedure to address my concerns.
I wasn’t really nervous in the days leading up to my surgery. But when surgery day rolled around, I started to get nervous. The recovery period lasted about 10 days, and I was pretty swollen, but I used a specialized face mask to help with the swelling and pain. It wasn’t until about week there that I could wear makeup again.
Since having my facelift, I look about 10 to 15 years younger. I love the result and would definitely do it again.”
