I am an American born Korean, 40 years old F. I travelled to Korea with my mom to get a "mini" facelift and thread lift combo while my mom got a full facelift and fat grafting with Dr. Park at FacePlus Plastic Surgery. I've had a lot of procedures done in the past at other clinics (some in Korea, some in the US), including an endotine forehead lift, upper bleph, rhinoplasty, and thread lifting and my experience with Dr. Park is BY FAR the smoothest and easiest process I've been through. The procedure was completely painless and though I had mentally prepared for a lot of bruising and swelling based on previous work, I experienced NONE with this mini lift (very minimal swelling with my mom). I was shocked at how easy the recovery was!! Honestly, I believe it was due to Dr. Park's careful and gentle treatment. The clinic staff was very helpful and thorough in taking care of us. We even had an English/Korean translator but we didn't need her services since we understand and speak Korean fluently but it was appreciated. As you can see from the photos (first being literally hours after the procedure) to Day 14 (today) post op, there is minimal scarring which is carefully placed within the hairline and almost undetectable once the hair grows out. The subtle lifting of the jowls and tightening of the jawline is exactly what I was going for so I am very pleased with the outcome and the 5-7 years this lift has bought me. I would highly recommend FacePlus and Dr. Park to anyone considering a facelift of any kind.
