Here we see two contrasting images. The one on the right is our managing Director Libby Babbage. Libby was age 62 (now 66). We guess the lady on the left isn’t much older-if at all. The lady on the left is a good case of a contented elderly lady who accepted the process of growing old. She looks comfortable enough and that’s fine.
On the other side of the coin we have Libby who refuses until the (inevitable prevails) of what she perceives of looking old. A lady who will resist it kicking and screaming..all the way. If she had not resisted it through the various cosmetic surgery procedures she opted for then she would have looked not dissimilar to the lady on the left.
Shown here below is Libby’s pre facelift surgery image:
See, there is a stigma in our society surrounding the facelift, and people fear that they will be seen as self obsessed and extreme if they start re-modelling their faces.
We shall not comment – you be the judge!
Are you of the age where you’re feeling like you wouldn’t mind a little nip and tuck to let yourself grow older gracefully? Well, we suggest you read through this article carefully in order to make sure that you are choosing the right approach to help you feel young again, and in the most effective and affordable way possible.
Many of our clients come to us with an inaccurate perception of what a facelift actually is; what it involves and how effective it really is. Instead, many come to us determined that they do not want a full facelift, and they want to opt for a little tweaking ‘here and there’ to transform the mid face. See, there is a stigma in our society surrounding the facelift, and people fear that they will be seen as self obsessed and extreme if they start re-modelling their faces. It makes many feel more comfortable to opt for the mid facelift, as this seems much less severe, less painful and less obvious.
However, having a mid facelift is basically the same procedure as the full facelift in terms of the procedure itself. In both operations the surgeon makes incisions either behind or at the front of the ears. The only difference is that after the healing process has taken its course, the mid facelift leaves the person with a younger looking face, but a neck that would appear to be 10 years older.
In actual fact, you will be saving money in the long run by going for the full facelift, as if and when you decide you are unhappy with your neck and want to even things out, this will cost excessively more. This can all be avoided if you have the job done well the first time around.
You see, if you opt for the facelift, after the surgery your face and neck will appear around 10 years younger (on average). This will make you feel beautiful again and as the neck and face will be even, there will be nothing that looks strange or uneven. Opt for the mid facelift, however, and the results will be quite the opposite. Many who go for this procedure come out feeling that their face looks much younger, but the reverse effect is evident; the neck of the client is left 10 years ahead of time and is scarily obvious to see. The mid facelift emphasises the fact that you have had surgery, as well as heightens new insecurities regarding your neck area.
As we all know, many Hollywood stars opt for a facelift, as they want to feel young again and wish to be taken back to their prime time. However, here is an example of Oliver Newton John (if she has indeed undergone a facelift) whether or not she opted for the mid facelift and left the neck. To us it certainly looks as if the neck doesn’t quite fit in contrast to the mid face….
Many also have the perception that company’s such as ours are out to get as much money as possible from our clients. This is simply not the case. Here at ‘Europa’ we pride ourselves in achieving the best possible results that will guarantee you look and feel a million dollars.
In actual fact, you will be saving money in the long run by going for the full facelift, as if and when you decide you are unhappy with your neck and want to even things out, this will cost excessively more. Additionally, not only will you be paying more for 2 operations all in all, but you will once more have to endure another operation, another number of hours under the knife and another recovery period. This can all be avoided if you have the job done well the first time around.
