What is the Facelift World?

The Facelift (w/ Neck Lift) World is a patient preparation and recovery guide that informs and gives you answers and solutions to all the issues (symptoms, complications, risks), concerns, problems, and questions that can arise before and after your procedure. Told from a patient’s point of view, the Facelift (w/ Neck Lift) World also equips you with all the healing solutions, insider tips, and product recommendations that are most helpful to patients. The facelift guide also educates you about everything that you need to know about, do, or change in every area of your life from the moment you are preparing for your procedure until full healing is achieved (which can take months to resolve). The Facelift (w/Neck Lift) World also includes all the preparation and recovery information needed by a patient only having a neck lift. This guide is relevant for all face lift procedure types, from mid face lift, mini face lift, and endoscopic face lift, to lower face lift, SMAS face lift, and other face lift types. The Facelift (w/Neck Lift) world is a product of an ongoing research effort that has never been done before in the plastic surgery industry involving many sources including the analysis of thousands upon thousands of facelift patient experiences. Learn more about the research.

Among the topics that are in the Facelift (w/Neck Lift) guide include: informing patients about what specific personal care guidelines to follow for your face/neck and the surgical regions, how to safely conduct your hygiene (hair, face, body, and wound/scar care) and beauty routines (skincare, makeup, hair care) during pre-op and recovery (and what to avoid doing), which everyday activities you can do (and how to perform them without disturbing the healing) and which activities you need to avoid at different stages of the recovery, how to best care for your incision areas, what solutions can improve scar healing and minimize scar appearance, what shopping and home-related preparations need to be made, how to reorganize areas/rooms of your home to make them healing-proof, how to use camouflage makeup products and techniques to hide bruising, swelling, and scars, what are all the symptoms, problems, risks, and complications that may occur (including how a symptom/complication changes day-to-day in look and feel, is it noticeable/painful, etc.) and what solutions can treat them at different time periods, what foods and supplements will strengthen your body before surgery and maximize your post-operative healing potential, what homeopathic remedies and vitamins can be taken to minimize your symptoms, and many other topics that a patient needs to know about.

The guide is for anyone having a face lift (with or without a neck lift) or neck lift, or someone who is considering a facelift and wants to be informed about the pre- and post-op phases of a facelift experience, or anyone who recently had the procedure and needs recovery information. You can read and use a World on the site and print out any page. The Facelift World is constantly updated with new information that we find and answers to new questions that patients ask us to investigate. See Facelift World sample.

Time & money savings, never-done-before research, objective information

The Facelift (w/Neck Lift) guide has been created and is continuously updated by a caring team whose full-time focus is on developing patient education and whose strengths are its research capability and understanding of patient needs and concerns. The facelift guide can save you countless months of research time, hassle, and money that you would otherwise need to invest. The range of patient issues, recovery scenarios that may happen, and potential healing solutions that can be undertaken is simply too huge of a responsibility to research, cover, and understand for one person within a limited amount of time. Even if you’re willing to make this investment, a lot of critical information is likely not to be found because it does not exist in any mainstream sources that simply do not have enough of a specialization in the field of patient education. Trying to research recovery issues and their solutions before the procedure is very difficult because it’s nearly impossible to anticipate a lot of the issues – let alone think of investigating them - unless you’re already going through the recovery itself.

The Facelift (w/Neck Lift) world is a product of an ongoing research effort that has never been done before in the plastic surgery industry and which involves a whole team. We go straight to the source and analyze the real-life experiences, testimonials, and insider advice of thousands of patients who had facelifts and neck lifts. We objectively use these primary sources and balances them with many others, including the healing philosophies and guidelines of many doctors and experts, medical journals, electronic/Internet sources, books, and all other available resources. The outcome is the most complete, objective, and accurate view of all the information a patient needs. To enhance quality, the Facelift (w/Necklift) guide is regularly updated with new information that is found and answers to new questions that patients ask.

How does a subscription work?

Before buying this patient education guide (World), you will need to select the amount of time that you want to have access to reading and using the information contained in the World. You can choose a subscription for either 1 month, 2 months, 3, 6 or 12 months. For example, if you get a 2-month subscription that means that you have access to your guide for 2 months. You can read the guide online and print out any page (each page has a printer-friendly version). You can also renew a subscription for a much smaller price than the original subscription price.

Whether you get a 1-month, 2, 3-month, 6, or 12-month subscription, the amount of information that you will get to read will be exactly the same in all subscription levels. However, because we continuously update each World regularly to reflect new information and answers to new questions that patients ask us to investigate, you will have the benefit of seeing updates only during the period of time when you are subscribed to the World.

How Do I Access My Subscription?

To access your subscription, go to http://www.makemeheal.com/mmh/member/mysubscriptions.do.

Can I access all the topic areas when I buy a subscription?

Yes. When you purchase a subscription to the guide (1 month, 2 months, 3, 6 or 12 months), you have access to all of the topic areas (which we call "rooms") and all the information (and updates) to the guide.

When is the best time to start the subscription?

It is recommended to give yourself a good amount of time before the date of your surgery to start reading the guide so that you are able to prepare well for your procedure and have less worries as you head towards surgery day. For this reason, it is recommended to start the subscription some time before your surgery (which can be weeks, a month, 2 months, or longer before your scheduled surgery). The more time you have to read and know about the issues and healing solutions before your procedure, the more you will feel prepared and the more peace of mind you may have going into surgery. After your surgery, the guide is very useful because it will help you get through the period of healing which can last for weeks and months. For this reason, you will want to give yourself an adequate amount of time following your procedure to read and use relevant recovery information.

Can I renew a subscription?

Yes. When you renew, you get a big discount off the subscription price. Here is the renewal schedule:

To get around the Facelift World most easily, we have organized the many issues involved in preparing and recovering from a facelift into major topic areas (which we refer to as “Rooms”). The following are detailed descriptions for each room that appears in the Facelift World:

Become enlightened with the deepest, clearest, most accurate and honest understanding of the symptoms, issues, problems, complications, risks, and everything else that may occur during your healing journey. Each symptom/issue is treated to a day-by-day analysis of how it evolves, how its look and feel change over time, whether the symptom/issue is noticeable to the eye, does it hurt, what facial areas may be affected, what the scientific causes of the symptom/issue may be, and how the symptom/issue may emotionally impact patients who experience it. With this understanding in place, this room then offers you a wide array of tried-and-tested solutions, tips and guidelines for addressing and treating the symptom/issue at different timeframes in the journey. The discussion for each symptom/issue is divided into timeframes (i.e. day 0 post-op, day 1, days 2-3, days 4-7, days 8-14, etc.), so that you may easily find what the symptom/issue may be like at any given period in your journey and know what you can do to treat it at that point in time.

As road bumps may occur along the healing journey, this room will also make you aware of rare but potential complications and risks that may happen during or after your surgery. Our comprehensive discussion on every complication/risk focuses on explaining what it is, why it may occur, why it may be dangerous or harmful, what are the chances of experiencing the complication/risk, when and where it is most likely to occur, what the warning signs may look and feel like, how the complication may evolve, and how it has affected fellow facelifters emotionally. Then the discussion goes on to explain what preventive steps can be taken to avoid or lessen one's chances of having the complication, as well as the treatments (first-aid, non-surgical, and surgical) that may be undertaken to treat a complication in the event it occurs.

Fly down to this room for a beauty make-over and make-smarter about the many changes and adjustments you will need to make to your facial beauty routines (skincare, makeup, hair care, facial hair care, and more) before and after your facelift, how to conduct these routines in the most healing-friendly ways during post-op, what beauty product brands are recommended to use before and after your procedure, and what beauty-related preparations should be done in advance of surgery.

As symptoms (bruising discolorations, swelling, scars, and lumps and bumps) may continue to linger on your face/neck after you need to go back out to the real world, you will also be able to learn about various tried tried-and-tested camouflage makeup techniques that are effective in hiding them, as well as walk through all the steps involved in each method, and specific makeup brands that may be used. This room also discusses numerous beauty practices, appliances, and accessories that should be avoided during your journey and provides you with suggested timeframes for when you may safely return to them again.

Shampoo your way over to this room and gain an insider's understanding of the numerous changes you will need to make to your hygiene and personal care routines (showering, face/neck care, hair care, oral care, and bathroom hygiene), the best and safest ways to do these rituals, what product brands are recommended, how to reorganize your bathroom and make it healing-proof, and other hygiene-related preparations that should be made before the surgery. This room provides a deep focus on how to care for your incisions and wounds, and provides a comprehensive discussion on specialized techniques and products that may be used to improve scar healing and minimize scar appearance. This room will also educate you about all the things you should do and what you should avoid doing when it comes to performing your hygiene and personal care rituals.

Take a voyage to this room and check up on what you need to do and what you should avoid doing as far as activities, movements, behaviors and any other ritual or habit that is part of a patient’s normal daily life. This room is divided by timeframes (i.e. day 0 post-op, day 1, days 2-3, days 4-7, days 8-14, etc.), so that you may easily find what the "DOs" and "DON’Ts" are at any given period in your journey.

Go for a picnic in this room and learn about how to best nourish yourself in the weeks before surgery to build up your body's defenses and maximize its healing potential. You will also find appetizing ideas for post-op meals you can prepare and get practical tips on how to reorganize your kitchen, refrigerator, and cabinets to make your life as simple and pleasant as possible during recovery. Once you get through these first few courses, you can then get your fill with an understanding of how your condition and certain symptoms and issues associated with your recovery will impact what and how you eat, what particular foods, drinks, and meals are best to nourish yourself with during different time periods in your post-op journey, and what are the best ways to eat and drink without disturbing the healing process. And for desert, you can learn about the many foods, beverages, and food supplements that should be avoided before and after your surgery.

Get your home into the spirit of change by picking up sage advice on practical preparations, changes, and any reorganizing that you may need to do prior to your procedure in every area of your home (healing room, bathroom, kitchen, living room, car, etc.) so that you can have the most comfortable, hassle-free, and safest recovery. In this room, you can also learn about what items, amenities, and other vitals you may need to stock each area of your home with and where to place these items. This is the spot to drive to if you want to get wiser about the steps that should be taken to make your home healing-proof and to morph it into the perfect recovery nest.

Take the alternative route to healing by learning about effective natural and homeopathic remedies that journeywomen and men have used to reduce, minimize, and in some cases even avoid symptoms and issues that can occur during recovery (swelling, bruising, nausea, constipation, sleeplessness, etc.). In this room, you will also be able to empower yourself with knowledge about natural products that may be used to promote tissue repair, improve scar healing, and help minimize scar appearance. In this room, you will also learn about which vitamins, minerals and supplements can be taken during pre-op and post-op to strengthen your body, improve your ability to heal, and potentially enable you to have a better and faster recovery. For a final bit of enlightenment, you will also be able to find out about the many natural products that you need to avoid before and after surgery.

Get a healthy dose about the various categories of prescribed and over-the-counter medications (antibiotics, pain, anti-nausea, constipation, and anti-anxiety meds, etc.) that may possibly accompany your journey and help make it more comfortable, safe, and happy. Our discussion on each type of medication will educate you about the drug's healing benefits, how you should administer your medication, typical start and stop dates for taking the medication, ranges on recommended dosages, activities that should be avoided while taking the drug, potential side effects and drug interactions, and other relevant issues. As a final part of your checkup, you can also learn about the various medications and products that you may need to avoid taking before and after your surgery.
