Mini Facelift and fat grafting to face
This 58 year old woman had a facelift procedure 8 years prior to being seen in our office. (She has a very important event coming up, and wants to look as great as she feels!) She came to us requesting another facelift to improve her loose skin and wrinkles. We suggested a combination of a mini-facelift, fat grafting to the face, and botox to the forehead. Here she is 2 months after those procedures, with improved skin contours throughout, looking refreshed.
San Jose-Facelift, Necklift, Eyelid Lift
This is a patient, in her 60s, who wants to refresh her look, by getting rid of some wrinkles and sagging skin. Her concerns were wrinkling over the face and neck, sagging in the neck and mid-face areas, and drooping of the eyelids.
In addition, to further refine her skin, and address wrinkles around the mouth, she underwent a peri-oral chemical peel. The procedures were performed during the same session in our AAAASF-accredited surgery center.
The After photos were taken 8 weeks following surgery. Our patient is very pleased with her results,
Face Lift and Neck Lift –San Jose
Men and women in Silicon Valley are interested in Face Lift and Neck Lift surgery. This patient came to our San Jose Plastic Surgery office, concerned about some of the changes that naturally come with aging. They include changes in the skin’s elasticity, and the way fat is distributed. These changes are different for all of us.
In his case, the concerns centered on loosening skin in the mid and lower face, and the fat distribution in the central neck area. Both of these are very common changes. He discussed the various options for facial rejuvenation with Dr. Lepore, and decided to have a mid-face lift procedure, and a neck lift with Vaser-assisted tumescent liposuction of the neck. Less than two weeks after the surgery, the sutures were removed, and even the initial results were obvious. The ‘After’ photos, taken several weeks later, show the improvement in the contour of the lower face area, and the significant definition achieved in the neck, chin, and jaw area. The patient continues his post-surgical care program, and is very pleased with his results.
This patient, in her 40s, is bothered by the changes to her appearance being caused by loosening facial and neck skin.
She is experiencing some early formation of jowls (loosening skin along the jawline), and has some excess fat beneath the chin, adding to the appearance of sagging in the neck.
She underwent Facelift surgery to restore the appearance of the mid and lower face, as well as a Neck Lift. During the Neck Lift procedure, Vaser ultrasound-assisted Liposuction was performed, for removal of the excess fat, and additional tightening of the skin. Both procedures were performed in the same session.
Our patient is pictured 8 weeks following her surgery, and is very pleased with her restored and rejuvenated facial and neck contour.
A patient in her mid-50s, came to see Dr. Maser for facial rejuvenation. She was unhappy with the look of extra skin on her neck, as well as sagging of the face and jowls. She hoped to reverse what she felt was a tired look to her eyes, and overall appearance.
Sometimes, pictures do tell the story. This woman, in her early 60s, had severely drooping and hanging eyelids, and a dramatic surgical result. Her upper lids were draping over her eyes, affecting her vision. It was so severe, that she had developed headaches from constantly lifting her brows to see. Dr. Bates performed an upper eyelid blepharoplasty to remove the excess skin and improve her visual fields. For the lower eyelids, he performed an extended blepharoplasty with cheek soft tissue release, and redraping of her eyelid fat into the cheek. She is very happy with her natural, refreshed result, and her headaches are gone.
This patient has decided that she would like her facial features to reflect her energy and spirit. She is in her early 60s, and felt that the effects of gravity and some excess tissue, were bringing her look down, and making her appear older than she felt.
After exploring the various options for facial rejuvenation with Dr. Lepore, she decided to undergo multiple procedures, including Face lift, Neck lift, Brow Lift, and upper and lower lid Blepharoplasty(eyelid surgery).
The procedures were performed during a single surgical session in our fully-accredited surgical suite. Excess skin and fat were removed from multiple areas, the skin and underlying tissue were resected,tailored,.and tightened. The result is a natural, refreshed appearance, with resolution of the sagging that bothered our patient most. She is very pleased with the results of her rejuvenation.
A patient in her upper 50s, who felt it was time for some facial rejuvenation.. She was unhappy in particular, with changes to her upper face. She felt the heaviness of her brow, was bringing down her entire expression. She opted for a brow lift, to relieve that heavy look. And she also underwent eyelid surgery. Dr. Maser performed upper and lower lid blepharoplasty. She looks natural and refreshed, and is very pleased with her results.
This patient, in her mid-60s, was interested in facial and neck rejuvenation in San Jose. After discussing her goals, and the options for achieving them, we decided that her best result would include a facelift, with a peri oral chemical peel, to smooth and tighten the skin around her nose and mouth.
In San Jose, facelift surgery can take from 2 to 4 hours to perform, and can be done under local anesthesia with I.V. sedation, or general anesthesia. Most patients having these procedures can return to regular activities in one to two weeks.
After her facelift and neck rejuvenation, this patient was very happy with her refreshed facial and neck contours, and overall more youthful appearance.
