One of the most complex and unforgiving procedures in the world of plastic surgery is the Facelift. You literally get one shot at doing it right the first time around. Following any operation, the normal atatomical planes become scarred and distorted, and the tissue does not stretch and move as easily as it should. This makes it very dangerous and difficult for less experienced or less talented surgeons. Given that this is your FACE...there is no room to hide the results...it is on display, there for all the world to see. Performing a facelift is a tour-de-force of technical precision at its best...UNDOING a botched facelift/necklift and getting great results is quite challenging. Doing this on a fellow medical professional...you guessed it...the stakes are sky high. I was able to deliver above and beyond the patient's considerable and educated expectations.
