Question : I had a mid-face lift and was delighted with my results. Now I want a necklift. Would I have been wiser to have had the full facelift rather than undergo these two separate procedures? I know I can’t turn back the clock but I am curious.
Answer : This is a question I quite often have with my patients. Sometimes they want to have a lesser procedure and are not quite comfortable doing a full procedure. Once they see that the lesser procedure has gone well, they then want to have another procedure. I give them the option at the time that they may want to have the full procedures. They have one procedure then they are finished. However, many patients are more comfortable doing some lesser procedure and being comfortable with the process and then going back for another procedure. So, I think both approaches are satisfactory.
