I recently read an article in the white journal that was a review of 27 articles on what factor affects a patients satisfaction with their facelift.  There were several factors identified that led to a patients increased likelihhood of disatisfaction.

What do you think they are?  Male sex, young age, unrealistic expectations, minimal deformities, demanding patients, surgiholics, relational or familial disturbances, obessive personality and narcissiim.

In my 35 years of practicing Plastic Surgery I found that many of these same characteristics can lead to an unhappy patient regardless of the cosmetic procedure being done.
