Q: Will I look plastic after a facelift?
A: That, in part, depends on who performs your facelift. Most people don’t want a
“pulled” or “overdone” look and they are scared to death that this will be the ultimate
result. Contrary to popular opinion, this rarely is the result and in fact, most surgeons
are determined to avoid this look. Most facelifts you see on the street are unnoticeable
and even hair stylists can have difficulty recognizing them. Hollywood starlets are the
minority of patients who have facelifts but their overzealous lifts often give facelifts
a bad name.
