I want a face lift without the pulled look
I've been thinking about a face lift for quite some time but am anxious about getting bad results so I'm hoping someone here can point me in the right direction. I really don't want to look like I've had a face lift I just want my skin a little bit less loose. I see to many celebrities on TV who would look good but have taken the plastic surgery too far. I want my face to look the same I don't want to look another race like he does.

The other thing is too I don't think many people realize how fake their plastic surgery looks. I'm in the midwest and whenever we watch those Holywood shows to u many of them look fake. Is it possible for me to get a natural looking facelift without the fake look? Is it hard to find a doctor that will do a facelift like this?

Everyone wants a face lift without the pulled look dear. It's a matter of finding a plastic surgeon that is conservative and knows how to be conservative What kind of you thinking of anyway a full facelift or a mini or... another kind? Really the key to facelifts is that less is always more.

I take it you don't know exactly what the surgery involves. Well I can tell you.
In the area along the temple hair the surgeon will make an incision in front of the ear and just above it. This goes around the earlobe and all the way around the ear and back to where it started. Then the doctor pulls the skin out and replaces it. All the muscle and connective tissues will be spruced up too. Usually a little fat is take out along the jaw so you have a jawline again. With men the incision are made along where the beard line would naturally be. Whatever the case the cuts are always or at least should be where the natural creases in the skin are to help cover it up. A good surgeon won't do all of this as much as he can but just go in and fix it half way instead of all the way. That's what makes the difference between a natural looking face lift or a plastic pulled look.

The Queen nailed it on the head. The secret to successful face lifts is not so much the technique used but rather the surgeon's skill.

Thanks for help both of you. Is there a certain type of facelift I should ask for? I don't know the different kinds and what all they do. I know there's the mini face lift, thread face lift, eye lift, and more but that's about it.
