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.
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.
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.

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 55-year old woman was interested in eyelid rejuvenation in San Jose. She was disturbed by what she felt were the aging effects of loosening skin on her eyelids.
After discussions with Dr. Lepore, this patient decided to undergo blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, on both her upper and lower lids. In addition, she chose to have BOTOX® Cosmetic injections in the "frown line" and "crow's feet" areas, feeling the combination of procedures has given her entire face a lift. She is very pleased with her refreshed appearance.

Facelift, Eyelid Lift, Neck Liposuction-San Jose
This woman, in her 50s, wished for some subtle, natural facial and neck rejuvenation. She was disturbed by what she felt were heavy-appearing eyelids, and drooping and excess tissue in areas of her face and neck.
All of these concerns are natural results of aging. After discussing her goals with Dr. Lepore, she decided to proceed with a MACS Facelift (Minimal access cranial suspension), which involves a shorter incision and scar. She also chose to have Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Lift), of the upper and lower eyelids, and Vaser Liposuction of the neck.
In this case, the patient chose to see whether Liposuction alone, rather than a surgical neck lift, could produce the result she wanted. A small amount of fat was removed through Vaser Liposuction. She is very pleased with those results, as well as the outcome of her MACS facelift, and Blepharoplasty.
She is seen approximately 2 months after her procedures.
An example of a procedure in demand by many men seeking plastic surgery in San Jose. This patient, a 43-year old man, felt that his eyelids and eyebrows were making him look older than he actually is, and somewhat tired. He proceeded in steps. First, he had upper and lower eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, to remove excess skin and fat from the eyelids. The March 5th photo shows him after the blepharoplasty but before his next surgery, a lateral browlift. The photos from June show the patient after eyelid and browlift surgeries. As with most men investigating male blepharoplasty and browlift in San Jose, he wanted improvement, but wanted it to be natural and subtle. He was very pleased with the outcome, and what he feels is a much more refreshed look.
