Imagine a woman who has had a plastic surgery on her face and has lifted her face. How a native speaker should say it in everyday speech?

For me, the following examples which are direct translations from my language, work, but I have no idea if they are natural or not:

She looks younger than her age. --- Yea, but I think sh’s gotten a face-lift.

She looks younger than her age. --- Yea, but I think she has done a face-lift.

She looks younger than her age. --- Yea, but I think she has lifted her face.

If they are not natural, please tell me how shall I say it in the most common way?

    The first phrase came to my mind, for a colloquial setting, was she got her face done. – Damkerng T. Jan 22 '17 at 11:13

    @Mari-LouA I certainly read my own thread. :) Please let me know which one works better here. – A-friend Jan 22 '17 at 20:53

    "He/she has had work done" – Mari-Lou A Jan 22 '17 at 21:08
  • Lots of usable suggestions here, but to address the question as stated, the first one is definitely the most correct. The others aren't phrases in English, at least not that I've heard. – the-baby-is-you Apr 12 at 3:40

As a native English speaker:

She looks younger than her age. Yeah, but I think she's had a face-lift.

Will this work for you:

— She looks younger than she really is.
— Yeah, but I think that she's just got one of those facelift surgeries.
