    I have ten days off work and am nervous about going back and looking weird. I will be having a brow lift, face lift, and upper eyelids done. Anyone with experience with down time?

    I had a neck lift, eyelid lift and laser work under my eyes to tighten the skin there. My doc was very hesitant to do full face lifts as he said most will do well with what I had. I think a second opinion for such a serious surgery is warranted. Of course, each of us is different and we have different issues.

    My healing was quite fast, about a week. Now, there is the lifestyle facelift but I think the results often leave women looking too gaunt in the face. Also, most women require a neck lift with the lifestyle lift for good results.

    Good luck.

    Love, Mikie
