Once a woman realizes she is visibly aging, she often begins to look for ways to delay, prevent, or repair the damage, whether it is caused by smoking, sun exposure, genetics, or age.

The women who come to Dr. Joshua Halpern for a facelift—usually in their forties and older—have their reasons for wanting the procedure. Some feel they look like their mothers; others simply look older than they want to. Some dislike the wrinkling on their face or don’t like how their neck is aging. Others want their jowls diminished, or the appearance of their nasal labial folds to improve.

The bottom line is that they want their face to reflect how they truly and deeply feel inside—youthful and vibrant.
