This patient is a 62 year old healthy female who wished some improvement in her facial aesthetics, primarily her jaw line and her neck.

This is a 60-year-old lady who saw me concerning some rejuvenation of her face and removal of excessive fat in the neck.

This is a 55-year-old lady who is seeing some of the classic signs of aging when people get in their 50s. She is noticing some looseness in the neck. She has loss of volume in the face, especially around the lower cheek area. She has loose skin along the jawline and loose skin in the face just lateral to the mouth.
Just simply a face and neck lift will not rejuvenate her face as much as we were able to do by tightening the skin as well as adding fat to the face area. Fat was added under the eyelid. Also, it was added to the lateral face area and the area just under the corners of the mouth. As you can see, the face is much more youthful now because the volume has been restored in the face. As people age, not only does the skin get loose and sag but also they lose volume in certain places of the face. The volume is restored with fat grafting. The fat grafting is a long lasting procedure unlike fillers like Juvéderm and Restylane. Once the fat is injected into the deficient areas and the blood supply is reestablished to the fat, the fat will remain in the face and can be very long lasting.
These procedures are usually done in the office.

Facelifts are designed to rejuvenate people's faces. They often make patients look younger but the main thing is they look much better and much more rejuvenated. These procedures are done in the office.
