If you have had a facelift and are pleased with the results, wonderful! But if you have had a facelift and are disappointed with the final result, know that you are not alone, and that something can be done. If you are considering a facelift, but wonder what went wrong after seeing friends and celebrities who have gone through the surgery, you've come to the right place for answers. I have spent most of my professional life developing the Composite Facelift, a facial rejuvenation operation to produce youthful anatomical changes without creating a facelifted look - the stigma of surgery. What came as a pleasant surprise was that, for patients having a second or even third facelift, this same procedure can erase the unwanted signs of prior surgery. The Composite Facelift is a next-generation alternative to standard procedures. It takes longer to perform and longer to heal, but yields longer-lasting, more natural-looking results. The Composite Facelift is based on the concept that the face ages as one dynamic, cohesive unit, rather than as a series of static, independent parts.
