Sue’s Facelift – 3 Months and What a Change (Video)

Updated: Jan 23, 2023

Ya know, it’s so hard to believe that it has been 3 months since my facelift. And, what’s funny is that sometimes I think to myself, “Has it ONLY been 3 months?” On the other hand, there are other times when I think to myself, “Wow, I can’t believe it’s been 3 months ALREADY!” I suppose it’s all in my point of view at that moment. So, what changes have taken place so far? Check out my latest video.

I went to the surgeon for my 3-month follow-up last week. We did 3-month pictures and looked at the before and after and I must say that it’s a HUGE difference. We both agreed that the side view is where the biggest change can be seen. I used to have basically no chin because my neck was hanging down so much. Now, I have a nicely defined chin line. We also agreed that my overall appearance is one that is simply more fresh than before. I don’t look as tired or unhappy. My personal opinion was that the way my cheeks hung down really brought down the sides of my mouth, giving me an appearance of being unhappy. So, I had to be mindful of that at all times. My cheekbones are also much nicer than before.

Since I previously would shy away from the camera, I will have to do some real digging to see if I can find some good “before” pictures that can really show the changes. However, what I also think is fun to see is the recovery that I’ve gone through since the surgery. So, just as a reminder, here is a quick video from the night that the bandages were first removed on February 9th.

Big difference IMHO. What has helped me to recover? Clean living, good protein, and genetics. I’ve tried to stay out of situations where I might be exposed to any unhealthy environmental elements. I’ve also tried to make sure to get good protein in because protein does help with healing. I actually get protein drink mix from my diet center and it has been invaluable, especially in the beginning when I could barely open my mouth.

And, while there are a couple of areas (slight tightness and numbness at my ears and a little persistent swelling under my chin) that still need to recover, I think that I’ve really come far. And, in answer to the question of whether or not I would do it again. I can give a resounding YES!
