“The family that plays together stays together.” It’s a beautiful concept isn’t it? How about this: “The family that has plastic surgery together stays together.” It doesn’t have quite the same ring, but some people are taking the idea out for a trial run.
One couple’s story of husband and wife facelifts
A late fifty-something husband and wife turn up for a plastic surgery consultation. The wife – let’s call her Suzanne – had asked for plastic surgeon referral from a trusted confidante. She made an appointment and brought along her husband to ensure she asked all her questions. There is nothing quite like a romantic date to the plastic surgeon’s office! Well, not only did the husband ask questions and take notes, but he scheduled a facelift for himself as well.

So how did this plastic surgery date come about for this couple? Why in the world did they have plastic surgery together? Suzanne explains that their story begins with a a caricature by a street artist. On vacation one summer afternoon, the couple commissioned their portrait. The caricaturist depicted Suzanne as an old lady with a double chin.
It was at that moment that she knew she had to do something about it. Once she had made her own decision, she confronted her husband – let’s call him Barry. He agreed to go along to the appointment. Suzanne suggested to him that perhaps he might consider the procedure for himself as well. He initially balked at the idea, but left the appointment with a “sure, why not?” kind of attitude.
Barry too had started to look in the mirror and see an older man looking back at him. He points out that his appearance did not reflect the way he felt. He looked old and saggy on the outside, but on the inside he still felt young and vibrant. After hearing the ins and outs of the procedure, he decided that a facelift would provide him with a little “age-lift” as well.
A facelift can be done in a variety of ways and they are done to suit the patient’s needs. It can help those who have facial creases: creases around the eyes, creases alongside the nose, and creases anywhere in the lower face. A facelift is also good for those who have lost muscle tone in the neck or jaw area or who have fatty deposits in the neck or jaw area. A facelift is a fabulous solution to a double chin.
It is important to keep in mind that the aging process will continue. Plastic surgery can do a lot, but it cannot freeze time. Be prepared to have touch-up plastic surgery treatments as you continue to age, if you want to maintain the fresh look.
When Barry is asked about the effects of the surgery on their private life, he says, “I got a new woman!”.
Drastic or subtle, a facelift can greatly improve your appearance, and make you feel like a whole new person.
