Facelift


 

This is a 58YO lady who desires some improvement of her face.  She has some of the early signs of aging that most women get.  She has some excessive fat in the neck.  She has lost the distinct mandibular border.  Also, she has some jowling and hollowness between the jowl area and her chin.  There is generalized looseness of the midface.  I will need to remove some excessive fat of the neck and tighten the loose muscles of the neck.  I will remove fat along the mandibular border and give it a more distinct appearance as well as remove some fat in the jowl area.  Then in front of the jowl area between the jowl and the chin, she has an indentation and I will do some fat grafts in that area. 

I did a high SMAS facelift on her which tightens the deep tissue of the face.  By tightening the deep tissue of the face and not relying on just pulling the skin tight, it will give a more natural looking facelift and a longer lasting facelift. 

These procedures can usually be done in the office with IV sedation.  The cost of this procedure is around $7,000.00.

 

 

This is a 67YO lady that desired some cosmetic improvement of her face.  She noticed that she was getting a lot of looseness in the neck with extra fat in the neck.  She had generalized looseness of her midface and her brow. 

She underwent a face, neck, and browlift.  You can now see the lower border of her mandible.  There is a definition between the mandible and the neck now which is a sign of youth.  Also, her eyes appear much brighter since she had the browlift and fat grafting underneath the lower lids.  She has much more youthful appearance and is very happy with her results.

 

 

This is a 70YO lady from Bainbridge, Ga.  She desired some cosmetic improvement of her face.  She is very active and healthy lady that stated she felt much better than she looked.  Pre-operatively, she has a lot of looseness in the neck as well as extra fat in the neck.  There is generalized looseness of the face.  The brows were low and prevent people from being able to see her bright blue eyes.  She underwent a face, neck, and browlift.  This greatly improved the appearance of her neck and generalized looseness of her face.  Her eyes now appear much more open and you see the brightness of her blue eyes.  This procedure was done as an outpatient procedure in the office with IV sedation.

 

 


This is a 47YO lady that desires some cosmetic improvement of her face.  When I examined her face, she appeared to have extra fat in the neck with a weak chin.  Also, you do not see her jaw line.  There is not much distinction between the face and the neck area. 

She underwent a face and neck lift with a chin implant.  Also, I did some fat grafting in the cheeks to give her some more prominence there.  This was done in the office under twilight anesthesia. 

 

 

This is a 64YO lady that desires some cosmetic improvement of her face.  When I examine her, she has some extra fat in the neck and has lost the border of the mandible.  She had also lost the fullness in her face around the mouth area and has deep creases around the lower part of the lower eyelid.  Her brows were just a little low.  She underwent a face, neck, and browlift with some fat grafting.  She now looks much more youthful.  The fat grafts have helped fill in some of the areas around the mouth that had lost fullness.  One of the signs of aging in the face is the loss of fat in certain areas of the face and gain fat in other areas.  She had gained fat in the neck and lost fat in the lower eyelid area and around the mouth. 

This procedure is done in the office with IV sedation.

 

 


This is a 70YO lady who noticed increased fat in her neck and in the mandibular border.  She had some generalized looseness of the face.  She was starting to jowl and get looseness around the lateral mouth area.

She underwent a face and necklift with fat grafting around the eyes and around the mouth.  As you can see, she now has a distinct mandibular border.  I eliminated the extra fat in the neck as well as the loose hanging skin of the neck.  Fat grafts fill in areas where there is deficiency of fat that occurs with natural aging.  This usually occurs at the junction between the eyelid and the cheek as well as in front of the jowl and the chin. 

This procedure is done in the office with IV sedation.  Patients can go home about an hour after surgery.  They can shower and wash their hair the next day.

This is a 71YO lady that desired some cosmetic improvement of her face.  She had gone to a non-plastic surgeon for some surgical improvement of her face a d neck a few years prior.  As you can see in the pre-op pictures she had marked deformities of the neck.  She had a significant amount of jowling and no definition between the jawline and the neck area.  Also, there was generalized looseness of her face.  She had a very indented area on the right temporal area where she had a previous surgery. 

She underwent a face, neck, and browlift.  I was able to fat graft around the temporal area and inferior lateral mouth.  I was able to remove fat under the chin and re-sculpt her jaw line.  I added fat in areas that needed it and removed fat from areas where it needed to be removed.  She had a lot of scarring in her neck area from her previous surgery.  I was fortunate that I could remove most of this scarring. 

Post operative photos show a much more defined jawline with a much smoother transition between the jawline and the chin area.  Also the temporal area that was quite hollow has been filled in by the fat grafting.

This procedure was performed in my office with IV sedation.
