The question is, what did you look like before? Do you have preoperative photos to show us?
Good luck from NYC.

  Does not look like you had a face lift at all

If the 3rd photo is the 'after' then no--it does not look like you had any face lift at all. So, I don't think your face lift was done right unless you had a massive seroma or something where the tissue planes did not adhere to each other when healing. How does your doctor (was he even a board certified PS?) explain your results?

2 photos don't show in the thumbnails but if you click on the blank thumbnails, it does show the photos. Thing is all the photos look like you did not have any face lift at all. Double check the photos to make sure they are not all befores because that's what they look like.
