Ricky Slate's three grown kids noticed their 62-year-old dad had a "turkey gobbler" of sagging skin under his chin, so they treated him to a little lift last Father's Day.

The different faces of a face-lift
HealthNewsDigest.com
There is one thing that wrinkles, drooping jowls and sagging facial skin does for a person's appearance: makes her look older than she actually is. Although scientists are still looking for ways to put time in reverse, many individuals tend not to wait for some miracle cream to make them look as young as they feel. Instead, they seek a rhytidectomy, commonly called a face-lift. A face-lift not only reverses the signs of aging, it also dramatically improves the appearance of a person's face and jaw.
