My droopy neck was driving me nuts. It was very annoying not to look as young as I felt.
—Facelift Patient of Dr. Fleury

Only you can decide. But it's interesting to note that over 450,000 American men and women answered with a resounding "yes" last year. The reasons are many. Some patients tell us they were concerned about one or two specific signs of aging. Others were concerned that others saw them as tired or angry when they were not. While no facelift surgery can solve life's problems, many people say that they feel better after facelift surgery and love the positive response they encounter from others around them.
