Facelift, Browlift and Lip Enhancement*

before

after

63-year-old  lady who underwent  a moderately extensive rejuvenation process for her face and neck. As can be seen in the preoperative pictures, the patient was suffering from  significant brow ptosis, periorbital wrinkles, underdevelopment and atrophy of her upper and lower lips and face and neck skin laxity. The patient underwent a coronal browlift to tighten her forehead and correct her sagging brows. The facelift included a skin and SMAS dissection and platysmal tightening of her neck. As can be seen on the lateral postop pictures, her excess jowl, neck and midface skin are now repositioned to a more youthful appearance. In addition, upper and lower lip advancement was done to enhance the shape and volume of her lips. It shortens the distance of skin between her nose and upper lip and also adds to her youthful appearance.
This is a relatively early three month postoperative picture and although the incision lines are barely noticeable, they will continue to improve with time. Finally, corner of the lip lifts were done to help improve the downturned outer edges of her lip. Her lips could not have been enhanced by any other procedure except for this skin cutting lip lift advancement. Purely utilizing a volume or graft injection to her lips would not have been beneficial since the patient had virtually no red lip show to begin with. It is still obvious on the patient of the somewhat aging appearance of her skin, especially in the perioral/upper and lower lip area where she has deep vertical creases. Facelifting cannot improve this. These areas will be approached with a chemical or laser peel at a later date. However, this cannot be safely done until six months of healing has occurred from the time of the facelifting procedure.

Facelift, Eyelid and Chin Implantation*

before

after

Four month postop result of cheek and neck lift, chin augmentation, and upper and lower eyelid tightening. All incisional scars well hidden in natural skin creases. The patient now appears more youthful and balanced. Note that fat bulge under the chin is now corrected with better neck contour. Additional refinements are possible, if the patient desires, with attention to skin care utilizing either chemical peels, laser abrasions and/or Gentlewave LED Photomodulation.

Facelift, Neurotoxin of Eyebrows and Lips*

before

after

Cheek and neck lift performed on 55-year-old female who now appears more refreshed with diminished hollowness to lower cheeks and increased tightness of laxed skin. Neurotoxin was injected three weeks after the face lift to the forehead region allowing for more sculptured and elegantly peaked eyebrows. A small amount of neurotoxin was also placed around lips to allow for more vibrant and youthful appearance. Postoperative appearance further enhanced with proper make-up application and hair styling. Side profile and oblique views again demonstrate her now lifted cheeks and smoother jaw and neckline.
