I'm a Beauty Enhancement Awards Contestant!

 

This album is an official submission to the Beauty Enhancement Awards. (Read more about it.)

 

I'm competing in the following categories:
Best Makeover - 50s, Best Female Face Lift

 

My Personal Statement:
I was so tired of hearing people ask me if I was upset or tired. I re-married and was so happy but my face never looked it.
Working in a hospital I knew that any thing could happen when you had surgery but was willing to take the chance to show every one that yes I was happy again in my life.
When I went to see Dr Jacobs I just was interested in my eyes. Since I have green eyes I wanted everyone to see them. When he did the before and after photos of me I was shocked at the change. So I brought them home and my wonderful husband was all for going for the whole package.
The package I am talking about is a deep plane face lift, blepharoplasty, and a TCA chemical peel. I went online to find pictures to show my children what their mother would look like after surgery. There are before and after pictures, but not to many pictures showing the swelling and brusing. So my husband and I wanted to make sure others and an idea what they would be going though. So we took pictures everyday.
I went back to work at the hospital on day 18, yes I was still swollen but not to much on brusing.
I love my results and I feel so much better about myself, and now I look the way I feel ........HAPPY!

    Actually your before photo wasn't that bad. Most people in there 40's didn't even look as good as your before picture.

    You look really pretty. Of all the procedures, which part was the most painful or scary? I am considering a lower face lift and neck lift but am so nervous that I keep putting it off. BTW your eyes are amazing!

    Wow! I hope you win your competition, even if you don't, I'm sure you feel great. Thank you for taking the time and energy to document this process, even though I'm sure taking pictures of yourself wasn't the first thing you felt like doing. I'm planning on having a mid-face lift, eyelids and chem peel done soon and boy, what a wake up call. Thank you for giving me a shot of reality... that looked like living hell! Thank you, and congratulations on your new HAPPYNESS:)

    Hollybee,

    Thank you so much for posting all of the after photos. I think many people don't really know what to expect for recovery, and this really helps others decide if it's right for them.

    You look fantastic!

    You look great! You know that little line of puffy fat in the crease of your left eye (if you are facing me). . . that puffy thingie was left like that. I think he was careless. If you look closely at the picture where it shows all the stiching, you can see what I mean. Would you recommend the peel?
