Well here I sit, 24 hours after my facelift. I am swollen beyond belief, lots of stitches. I can't eat, my face muscles make it hard to chew. Sucking through a straw is eaier I got my bandages off this morning and took a glorious shower!

No exercise or food to speak of right now, although I find myself walking around the house a lot just because I like to keep moving.

Right now I think I'd like a nap.

    Nell, I didn't know you were planning this. I've heard it's very painful. I wish you a fast and less painful healing process.

    I can't see where you needed it!
I would just like to have my upper lip ironed out but that's not going to happen. I like the look of eye lines or smile lines.

    What did you have done? Did you get eyes done, too? Considering going this route, especially the eyes, which really betray my age. Please do share before/after.

    Did it hurt? I don't think you needed one from your pictures.
I know I do, but I don't think my insurance will help at all.
I would like a consultation.

    Facelift?? I had no idea you were planning one. Please let us see before and after--once the swelling is down, of course!
