THE FACE-LIFT SOURCEBOOK
This easy read shares extremely intimate experiences where everyday people, not just Hollywood types, confront an aging appearance. People in their thirties to eighties often have to deal with emotional issues first. Consulting patients during the first phase of the face-lift process is a very interesting study.
Patients ask, “Should I or shouldn’t I?” Does “should” mean ‘is it safe’ or ‘can I afford it’? Or, is it questioning whether it is morally or socially okay to have cosmetic surgery. Feelings of guilt and self-conflicting agendas often lurk behind these questions. “Enhancing our own appearance is partially about a woman’s power – a tremendous power to increase the options in her life,” says Dr. Henry. “Expectations must be reasonable – a face-lift will not bring back your boyfriend, it won’t keep a wandering spouse close to home.”
With a knack for explaining emotional issues and technical procedures, Dr. Henry takes you on a journey through the face-lift process. With helpful illustrations and photographs, she supplies all the vital information a person needs to research a face-lift. Henry specifies how the procedures are performed, how many hours each procedure entails, which anesthesia is used, what to expect during recovery and how much each procedure costs.
