This time last year, all I heard from friends and family was "You look so tired and run down". Now all I hear is "you look A-MAY-ZING" or "You look so refreshed". At age 55, all I wanted was to look as young as I felt. I was scared to death of getting a face lift and looking as though I had just emerged from a wind tunnel. I can't say enough about Dr. Kauffman and his great staff. The results of my surgery were beyond what I ever hoped for or expected. My huband, who was adamantly against this from the get go, now says I look like a younger version of myself, very relaxed and natural. Believe it or not, it was virtually a painless recovery and 12 days post surgery I went to a party. My only regret? Should of done it when I was 50!
