Actress Frances Barber said in a Radio Times interview, "I don't care about getting older. I really don't. I'm 54, I feel 26 and I act 12. I'd be a hypocrite if I said I'd never get a facelift - I'm saving up for one - but it'll be tiny adjustments. The kind of thing that just makes you look less tired."

Plastic surgeon Dr Kremer comments:

Frances is one of an increasing number of women who, as they enter their late 40's / early 50's, decide they want to look as fresh as they feel! The modern facelift and in particular, my Turn-Back-Time (TBT) facelift, sees the face returned to it's former shape and fullness, without the risk of the 'wind tunnel' effect seen in facelifts & necklifts of yesteryear.

As we age, natural fat pads in the cheeks slip, giving the face a gaunt, tired appearance with associated sagging of the jowls and deepening facial lines.  Looking 10 years younger is easily achieved using techniques that restore the fat pads to their original place, tightening of drooping facial muscles and removal of excess skin.  

I'm certain Frances will receive negative comments from some women who view plastic surgery with distain - for whatever reason.  This is such a shame - even in this relatively liberal age, many of my facelift and necklift patients still find their nearest and dearest are not wholly supportive of their decision to 'go under the knife' and many actually receive comments bordering on snide from female 'friends'.

Technological advances have made their mark in healthcare and especially in my chosen field of plastic surgery and these, combined with ever improving anaesthetic techniques, means that predictable, minimal scarring procedures can now be offered - safely.
