Recently I have been pleasantly surprised on a number of occasions by the nursing staff at different facilities who acknowledged their surprise at the ages of my patients. The common thread among these patients is that they all had facelift and eyelid surgeries with me in the past. They were returning for unrelated procedures. Their aesthetic procedures were performed on the average 15 years earlier.
The nursing staff was unaware of the patients’ previous procedures. I realized that this was a compliment to me and my patients. It dawned on me that the best facelift is the one that leaves a person youthful but not exaggerated to the point of recognition! The secret of a good face lift is that it is a secret.
