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.
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.
