<p><em>4 Minute Read:&nbsp;</em></p>
<p><span>A neck lift can be one of the most transformative </span><span>plastic surgery procedures</span><span>.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>With this procedure, the tissues in your neck are tightened, excess and </span><span>sagging skin</span><span> is removed, and the remaining skin is tightened to give you a more </span><span>contoured neck</span><span> and </span><span>jawline</span><span>.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>All of these corrections can have a significant impact on a person’s confidence and comfort. However, with all of these advantages that come from a neck lift, many people often wonder when the right time to undergo surgery might be.&nbsp;</span></p>

<p><span>Below, you’ll find some information to help you better understand when you might want to consider having your neck lift.</span></p>
<h2><span>Why Should I Get a Neck Lift?</span></h2>
<p><a href=”https://www.beverlyhillsplasticsurgeryinc.com/neck-lift/”><span>Neck lift surgery</span></a><span> helps to correct loose and sagging skin on the neck.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>During your procedure, pockets of stubborn, subcutaneous fat can be removed from your neck along with excess skin to give you the defined neck and facial aesthetic that you desire.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>While age tends to be the primary reason why the skin on our necks becomes loose and begins to sag (this is due to a loss of </span><span>collagen</span><span> and </span><span>elastin</span><span> in the skin, which are responsible for our skin’s health, strength, and elasticity), there are other factors that contribute to why you have neck skin that needs to be addressed.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>Some of these factors include:</span></p>
<ul>
<li aria-level=”1″><span>Genetics</span></li>
<li aria-level=”1″><span>Sun exposure</span></li>
<li aria-level=”1″><span>Pollution exposure</span></li>
<li aria-level=”1″><span>Lifestyle (diet and exercise)&nbsp;</span></li>
</ul>
<h2><span>When Will I Know I Need a Neck Lift?</span></h2>
<p><span>Ultimately, when you get a neck lift is completely your choice. Some patients choose to correct their neck appearance as early as they can to preemptively limit the amount of sagging they may experience, while other men and women choose to wait until their neck issues have settled in a bit more.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>Neither choice is better than the other.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>However, if you are upset with the loose skin on your neck and want to regain a more contoured appearance, then it might be the right time to contact Dr. Chiu for </span><a href=”https://www.beverlyhillsplasticsurgeryinc.com/contact-us/”><span>a consultation</span></a><span>.</span></p>
<h2><span>When Is the Right Time for My Neck Lift?</span></h2>
<p><span>Most patients tend to get their neck lift when they are between the ages of 35 and 65. It is during these years that a neck lift will have the maximum effect. And while this seems like a large age gap, it is only because every person is different and unique.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>Our skin starts to sag during the late part of our 20s and early part of our 30s. By the age of 35, some patients are already experiencing frustrating loose and sagging skin on their neck. And, unfortunately, outside of </span><span>plastic surgery</span><span> and cosmetic treatments, there is really no way to correct this sagging skin.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>Once you feel you are ready to regain control of your neck and facial appearance, it is important that you contact Dr. Chiu to schedule your consultation.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>At your consultation, Dr. Chiu will answer any questions you may have, develop a surgical plan that is right for you, and discuss when the right time in your life might be to schedule your surgery. This last point is important since </span><span>neck lift recovery</span><span> generally takes four to six weeks.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>You want to make sure that you are able to have that amount of time free from distractions so that your </span><span>neck lift results</span><span> are as dramatic as you expect.&nbsp;</span></p>
<h2><span>How Can I Have an Even More Transformed Appearance?</span></h2>
<p><span>While many patients choose to simply have their neck lift surgery as a standalone procedure, other men and women combine their neck lift with other procedures to create an even more complete and balanced appearance to their face and neck.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>Some of the procedures that are often combined with neck lift surgery include:</span></p>

<p><span>Whether you choose to combine your neck lift with other procedures or not, make sure that you contact Dr. Chiu to schedule your consultation appointment so that you are able to look and feel as good as you deserve.</span></p>

5 Reasons to Get Liposuction in Spring https://www.beverlyhillsplasticsurgeryinc.com/5-reasons-to-get-liposuction-in-spring/
https://www.beverlyhillsplasticsurgeryinc.com/?p=11428

</p>

<p><em>4 Minute Read:</em></p>
<p><span>As we approach early spring, that means one thing: Summer is coming quickly!&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>And with summer comes hot days and fun gatherings at the beach and pool. That also means showing parts of your body that you may feel self-conscious about.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>Many men and women have extra </span><span>subcutaneous body fat</span><span> that they carry around in various areas of their bodies. While this </span><span>excess fat</span><span> can cause many people to stay indoors, away from the fun and the sun, this is no way to enjoy the perfect summer months.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>Instead, you can get closer to that perfect summer </span><span>beach bod</span><span> with the help of one of the most trusted </span><span>plastic surgery procedures</span><span> available: </span><b>Liposuction</b><span>!</span></p>
<p><img class=”size-full wp-image-11429 aligncenter” src=”https://www.beverlyhillsplasticsurgeryinc.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/04/happy-couple-in-pool.jpg” alt=”ttractive couple smiling at each other while they stand in a pool” width=”800″ height=”533″ data-id=”11429″ srcset=”https://www.beverlyhillsplasticsurgeryinc.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/04/happy-couple-in-pool.jpg 800w, https://www.beverlyhillsplasticsurgeryinc.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/04/happy-couple-in-pool-300×200.jpg 300w, https://www.beverlyhillsplasticsurgeryinc.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/04/happy-couple-in-pool-768×512.jpg 768w” sizes=”(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px”></p>
<p><a href=”https://www.plasticsurgery.org/documents/News/Statistics/2020/plastic-surgery-statistics-full-report-2020.pdf” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener”><span>Liposuction was one of the top five most performed </span><span>cosmetic surgical procedures</span><span> in 2020</span></a><span>, and when you see how transformative liposuction can be, there’s no wonder why!&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><a href=”https://www.beverlyhillsplasticsurgeryinc.com/liposuction/”><span>Liposuction surgery</span></a><span> is the removal of </span><span>stubborn fat</span><span>. Essentially, the fat is vacuumed out of your body, and once the fat is gone, it’s gone permanently.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>However, there is a catch. Because the recovery period for liposuction can be two to six weeks, if you’re wanting to have your </span><span>liposuction results</span><span> (or any </span><span>body contouring</span><span> procedure results) ready for summer, you need to act quickly and </span><a href=”https://www.beverlyhillsplasticsurgeryinc.com/contact-us/”><span>schedule your consultation</span></a><span> for your procedure soon!&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>Below are five reasons to have your liposuction procedure performed this spring.&nbsp;&nbsp;</span></p>
<h2><span>1. Wear the Clothes You Want</span></h2>
<p><span>You may have had that sleeveless tee or cute dress in your closet for years, waiting until the summer when you have the figure to show it off, or maybe you want to go shopping for that perfect bikini or bathing suit that you feel comfortable wearing.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>Well, after your </span><span>liposuction procedure</span><span>, you’ll be able to dust off those outfits or go shopping for the perfect clothing to wear this summer. Hopefully, you will feel less insecure about exposing the fatty areas of your body since the fat will be lessened or gone!&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>Now, you can enjoy wearing what you want, when you want!</span></p>
<h2><span>2. Enjoy Summer Activities</span></h2>
<p><span>It can be so frustrating watching from the sidelines as your family and friends have fun playing on the beach or at the pool. You may not want to go out there and play because you feel too embarrassed by your body flab. Maybe you want to join in that game of Marco Polo or the volleyball match.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>After your liposuction surgery, you may feel more inclined to join in with your favorite summer activities and make memories as you laugh and smile!</span></p>
<h2><span>3. Recover When It’s Not Too Hot</span></h2>
<p><span>Nothing is more annoying than having to stay inside on the bed or couch while the rest of the world is outside enjoying the summer. The only thing worse than missing out on enjoying the sun is recovering when it’s hot outside and inside (even with the air conditioner on).&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>After your plastic surgery procedure, you may have to wear a </span><span>compression garment</span><span>, and no one wants to wear extra clothing when it’s already hot.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>So, why not have your </span><span>cosmetic surgery</span><span> in the spring so that you are able to recover before it gets too hot?</span></p>

<h2><span>4. Combine Liposuction With Other Procedures</span></h2>
<p><span>One of the best parts about liposuction is that you can have the procedure as a standalone surgery, where you simply remove fat from a specific location on your body, or you can combine it with other cosmetic procedures to give you an even more dynamic and total transformation.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>Some of these procedures include:&nbsp;</span></p>

<p><span>Since these other procedures carry different recovery times (some longer than liposuction), it is even more important that you </span><a href=”https://www.beverlyhillsplasticsurgeryinc.com/contact-us/”><span>schedule your consultation</span></a><span> as soon as you can to make sure that you are ready to show off your stunning results for the summer!</span></p>
<h2><span>5. Look and Feel Your Best</span></h2>
<p><span>Besides looking your absolute best, you’ll be able to feel confident in your appearance. You will be able to walk in the summer sun, wearing what you want and knowing that you are turning heads for all the right reasons! No longer will you feel self-conscious about the extra fat you’re carrying around.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>After your liposuction surgery, the fat will be lessened, and, likely, so will the worry about how you look!</span></p>
<h2><span>Want to Learn More About Liposuction Surgery?</span></h2>
<p><span>Liposuction is one of the most transformative cosmetic procedures available. To see if you are the right candidate for liposuction or ask any questions you have, </span><span>schedule a consultation with Dr. Chiu at Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery, Inc., by calling </span><a href=”tel:+13107366810″><b>(310) 736-6810</b></a><span> or filling out </span><a href=”https://www.beverlyhillsplasticsurgeryinc.com/contact-us/”><span>our online form here</span></a><span>.&nbsp;&nbsp;</span></p>

Will Natural Breast Augmentation Give Me the Breast Contours I Want? https://www.beverlyhillsplasticsurgeryinc.com/will-natural-breast-augmentation-give-me-the-breast-contours-i-want/

<p><em>4 Minute Read:&nbsp;</em></p>
<p><span>It is common for women to desire bigger, fuller breasts. We see women improving their bust size all the time, from our neighbors to </span><a href=”https://www.sofeminine.co.uk/beauty/album920886/celeb-boob-jobs-a-listers-with-breast-augmentation-0.html#p1″ target=”_blank” rel=”noopener”><span>the celebrities we watch on the screen</span></a><span>.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>And while </span><span>breast augmentation surgery</span><span> with implants is the most common procedure used to give women the busty and beautiful chest contours they want, it is not the only way to achieve a more shapely bust. Natural breast augmentation with </span><span>fat grafting</span><span> is a minimally invasive procedure that can give you the curvy and fuller breasts that you’re after.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><img class=”size-full wp-image-11423 aligncenter” src=”https://www.beverlyhillsplasticsurgeryinc.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/03/woman-with-cleavage-showing-through-open-shirt.png” alt=”Close-up of woman wearing an opened button-down shirt and showing her cleavage” width=”800″ height=”533″ data-id=”11423″ srcset=”https://www.beverlyhillsplasticsurgeryinc.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/03/woman-with-cleavage-showing-through-open-shirt.png 800w, https://www.beverlyhillsplasticsurgeryinc.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/03/woman-with-cleavage-showing-through-open-shirt-300×200.png 300w, https://www.beverlyhillsplasticsurgeryinc.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/03/woman-with-cleavage-showing-through-open-shirt-768×512.png 768w” sizes=”(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px”></p>
<p><span>With a natural breast augmentation, you will have improved confidence in how you look, and you won’t have to worry about adding synthetic implants into your body.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>But before you make any decisions, it’s important to take a look at both natural and traditional breast augmentation to know which one is the best for you and your goals.</span></p>
<h2><span>What Is Natural Breast Augmentation?</span></h2>
<p><a href=”https://www.beverlyhillsplasticsurgeryinc.com/natural-breast-augmentation/”><span>Natural breast augmentation is a procedure that uses fat grafting</span></a><span> to give you improved breast volume and size.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>This procedure is ideal for women looking to augment their breast size but do not want to have foreign objects (</span><span>silicone implants</span><span> or </span><span>saline implants</span><span>) inserted into their bodies.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>Dr. Chiu will </span><a href=”https://www.beverlyhillsplasticsurgeryinc.com/liposuction/”><span>use </span><span>liposuction</span><span> to remove unwanted fat</span></a><span> from a part of your body (either from the waist, abdomen, thighs, back, arms, or buttocks). This fat is then purified and strategically injected into the breast tissue.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>The fat will attach itself to the tissue to give you natural-looking results that you can be proud of.</span></p>
<h3><span>The Benefits of Natural Breast Augmentation</span></h3>
<p><span>In addition to added volume and size of your breasts, natural breast augmentation has numerous benefits, including:</span></p>
<h4><span>No Need for Explant Surgery&nbsp;</span></h4>
<p><span>Breast implants generally last 10 to 20 years before needing to be replaced. However, since you are not having </span><span>breast implants</span><span> placed, you do not need to worry about changing them out.</span></p>
<h4><span>No Risk of Implant Rupture&nbsp;</span></h4>
<p><span>Because you do not have implants in your chest, you do not need to worry about any implant issues, such as rupturing or </span><span>capsular contracture</span><span>.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>Additionally, because the fat being transferred is coming from your body, there is no need to worry about your body rejecting it.</span></p>
<h4><span>Smaller Incisions Than Traditional Breast Augmentation</span></h4>
<p><span>Traditional breast augmentation surgery requires incisions to place the implants. These incisions lead to </span><span>breast augmentation scars</span><span>, and while these scars will fade over time (and can be concealed with bras and bathing suits), they will still be present.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>However, natural breast augmentation only requires incisions for the liposuction portion, and these incisions are very small. The fat is injected into the breast tissue through a needle, which will not create any noticeable scarring.</span></p>
<h4><span>Enhanced Cleavage</span></h4>
<p><span>Because of the increased fat on the breast tissue, the size and volume of your breasts will be increased. This leads to improved cleavage that you will be able to show off in low-cut shirts and bikinis.</span></p>
<p><i><span>It is important to note that natural breast augmentation cannot increase breast size the way that implants can.</span></i></p>
<h4><span>Natural-Feeling Results</span></h4>
<p><span>Breast implants have come a long way, and many silicone implants are able to replicate the look and feel of natural breast tissue. However, even the best implant cannot rival the feel of natural tissue, which is what you get with natural breast augmentation.</span></p>
<h4><span>Contoured Body</span></h4>
<p><span>Because liposuction is used, you will have additional contouring to a portion of your body. So, in essence, you are having two procedures done: an increase in breast size and shape and a more trimmed and toned area of your body (waist, abdomen, thighs, back, arms, or buttocks).</span></p>
<h2><span>What About Traditional Breast Augmentation Surgery?</span></h2>
<p><span>When deciding between natural breast augmentation and traditional breast augmentation surgery, you need to ask yourself what it is you’re really looking for. While </span><a href=”https://www.beverlyhillsplasticsurgeryinc.com/breast-augmentation/”><span>breast augmentation surgery</span></a><span> is a more invasive procedure that includes incisions, scars, and a longer recovery time, the results are definitely more dramatic.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>If you are looking for subtle, natural-looking results, then natural breast augmentation with fat grafting is the ideal choice. However, if you want to turn heads with dynamic results or you have a specific breast contour in mind, then breast implants may be best for you.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>At your consultation, Dr. Chiu will help you decide which choice will best fit your desires.&nbsp;&nbsp;</span></p>

I Want Dermal Fillers. How Should I Choose Between Restylane® and JUVÉDERM®? https://www.beverlyhillsplasticsurgeryinc.com/i-want-dermal-fillers-how-should-i-choose-between-restylane-and-juvederm/

<small>February 14th, 2022 | Posted in: <a href=”https://www.beverlyhillsplasticsurgeryinc.com/category/injectables/” rel=”category tag”>Injectables</a> | </small>
</p>

<p><em>3 Minute Read:&nbsp;</em></p>
<p><span>So, you’ve decided that you want to plump your facial contours and minimize the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines using dermal fillers.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><b>This is a great first step!&nbsp;</b></p>
<p><span>But it is only the first step. The next one is to decide which dermal filler is right for you. A simple Google search will yield millions of results, which can prove more confusing than informative.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>Two of the most common and effective dermal fillers on the market are Restylane® and JUVÉDERM®. And this is where things get a little tricky since, on paper, both of these dermal fillers seem to do the exact same thing: help fill blemishes on the face (like wrinkles, nasolabial folds, smile lines, and volume loss). That is why knowing the subtle differences between these injectable treatments is vital to a successful outcome for you.</span></p>
<p><img class=”size-full wp-image-11412 aligncenter” src=”https://www.beverlyhillsplasticsurgeryinc.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/02/middle-aged-woman-against-gray.jpg” alt=”Middle-age woman with clear and smooth facial skin looks directly at the camera” width=”800″ height=”533″ data-id=”11412″ srcset=”https://www.beverlyhillsplasticsurgeryinc.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/02/middle-aged-woman-against-gray.jpg 800w, https://www.beverlyhillsplasticsurgeryinc.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/02/middle-aged-woman-against-gray-300×200.jpg 300w, https://www.beverlyhillsplasticsurgeryinc.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/02/middle-aged-woman-against-gray-768×512.jpg 768w” sizes=”(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px”></p>
<h2><span>Dermal Fillers: Restylane® vs. JUVÉDERM®</span></h2>
<p><span>Dermal fillers are injectable cosmetic treatments that help your face become fuller, smoother, tighter, and healthier. These two fillers, composed of hyaluronic acid, are injected directly beneath the skin of the troublesome areas to restore and revitalize.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>These treatments are some of the most popular in the aesthetics industry. </span><i><span>In fact, </span></i><a href=”https://www.plasticsurgery.org/documents/News/Statistics/2020/plastic-surgery-statistics-full-report-2020.pdf” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener”><i><span>in 2019 and 2020 combined, almost 5,500,000 hyaluronic acid treatments were performed</span></i></a><i><span>. </span></i><span>And of these treatments, many of them were either Restylane® or JUVÉDERM®.&nbsp;</span></p>
<h3><span>RESTYLANE®</span></h3>
<p><span>A </span><a href=”https://www.beverlyhillsplasticsurgeryinc.com/restylane/”><span>Restylane® filler</span></a><span> is made of hyaluronic acid and is injected directly into the facial tissues to help alleviate wrinkles and counteract volume loss.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>This FDA-approved dermal filler is a bit more granular in composition than other fillers (including JUVÉDERM®). Because of this grainy composition, Restylane® works best when applied to a more singular, local area. It will increase volume in this area to smooth out the skin and give clear results; however, because of the composition of this dermal filler, manual smoothening may be needed after the injection to make sure that there are no lumps created in the skin.&nbsp;</span></p>
<h3><span>JUVÉDERM®</span></h3>
<p><span>A </span><a href=”https://www.beverlyhillsplasticsurgeryinc.com/juvederm/”><span>JUVÉDERM filler</span></a><span>, similar to Restylane®, corrects wrinkles and volume loss brought on by age or lifestyle. It, too, is FDA approved to correct issues like fine lines and wrinkles on the face.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>However, one of the important traits of JUVÉDERM® is its smooth composition, which allows it to spread out over a large treatment area. This spreading helps to give a natural and consistent appearance. However, due to the fact that this </span><span>hyaluronic acid dermal filler</span><span> spreads, it is sometimes challenging to predict the specific results to a concentrated area (like Restylane® does).</span></p>
<h2><span>Which Dermal Filler Is Right for Me, Then?</span></h2>
<p><span>The choice between Restylane® and JUVÉDERM® depends on the specific correction you are looking for. For optimal results, you want to make sure that you pick the right one for you and your skin issues. Because of this, at Beverly Hills Cosmetic Surgery, Inc., we make it our mission to help you choose the right treatment for you.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>However, to give you a clearer idea, think of it this way: If you are struggling with a specific and concentrated issue with your facial skin, then Restylane® is probably the treatment you are looking for. And if you want a broader, more evenly spread correction to the lines and wrinkles on your face (a larger treatment area), then JUVÉDERM® would be your best bet.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>With either dermal filler, you can rest easy knowing that you will have noticeable and dynamic results that will make you look and feel younger than you have in years. The question just comes down to which one will best help you.</span></p>

<p><span><em>4 Minute Read:&nbsp;</em></span></p>
<p><span>January is the perfect month to get a facelift if you want to look your best by spring. In a world where timing is everything, planning ahead can help you to kick the year off right with smoother skin and that extra boost of confidence.</span></p>

<h2><span>How to Prepare for a Facelift</span></h2>
<p><span>Preparing carefully for a </span><a href=”https://www.beverlyhillsplasticsurgeryinc.com/facelift/”><span>facelift (rhytidectomy)</span></a><span> can help ensure a complete and speedy recovery.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>Part of that prep should be planning the timing of your procedure. January, when holidays and social gatherings are mostly finished, is typically a quiet time for activities that will take you away from home.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>If you are traveling for your procedure, even better. By booking your facelift in January, you’ll be able to return home and lie low while you heal.</span></p>
<p><span>Once you have your facelift booked, you can start preparing your schedule and recovery space. Most patients require around a week off from work (depending on your type of job) and normal day-to-day activities.</span></p>
<p><span>Additionally, you will want to prepare your home for your recovery. Many patients find it helpful to establish a “recovery space” with easy access to anything you might need. This includes healthy snacks, entertainment options, and pain medications. You should also plan to have some extra pillows to keep you upright while relaxing (this helps your facelift recovery).&nbsp;&nbsp;</span></p>
<h2><span>What to Expect While Recovering From a Facelift</span></h2>
<p><span>The recovery period for a facelift can range from two to six weeks, depending on the extent of the surgery and whether complications develop.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>You can reasonably expect to be out and about after three weeks, at which point any swelling and bruising should have subsided and stitches removed.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>There are several ways to increase the chances of a quick and easy recovery, including the following:</span></p>
<h3><span>Eat Well&nbsp;</span></h3>
<p><span>Foods that fight inflammation — such as field berries, fatty fish (such as salmon), and avocados — can help. Don’t forget to drink lots of fluids — they can also help your body regroup after trauma.</span></p>
<h3><span>Get Your Zzz’s</span></h3>
<p><span>Sleep and rest as much as possible. This gives your incisions the best chance of healing.</span></p>
<p><span>Follow your surgical team’s post-op instructions to the letter. If you’re in doubt, always double-check with your surgical team.&nbsp;</span></p>
<h2><span>Do I Have Time for a Facelift Before Valentine’s Day?</span></h2>
<p><span>While many patients undergoing a January facelift are likely eager to look their best by Valentine’s Day, this may or may not be possible. You should expect to be swollen and sore for a few weeks after your facelift, which may overlap with the holiday depending on when in January you undergo surgery.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span>The good news is that you will be well on your way to a more youthful-looking facial appearance.</span></p>
<h2><span>Interested in Facelift Surgery Before Spring?</span></h2>
