There really has been no study to answer this question until some researchers in New York surveyed 105 facelift patients. 53 patients completed the questionares. Patients were highly satisfied with their facial appearance (80.7%) – over 90% were satisfied with their decision to undergo a facelift.
The patients said on average they were 6.9% years younger. The areas patients were most satisfied with were the nasolabial folds followed by the lower jawline.
