The patient is a 51 year old female who consulted with Dr. Daniel concerning primarily her jaw and neck. She also had some questions about laser hair removal and our vascular lasers, so our full service SpaSide was important for her as well. She did have well-treated high blood pressure, but was otherwise very healthy.
An exam at her consultation showed her concerns about fullness in her neck and blunting of the neck contours. It also showed that she had some redundancies in the upper eyelids and some herniated fat pads in both the upper and lower eyelids. In addition, she had some settling in the mid cheeks with some blunting of the jaw line.
After a full discussion, Dr. Daniel and the patient felt that upper and lower eyelid surgery would be a nice adjunct to suspension facelift. Her pre and postop pictures (at four months) show dramatic improvement. Her eyes are much more open and attractive. The transition from eyelid to cheek is improved and the flattening to the mid cheek has been corrected with highlighting of the entire jaw line and a much better chin/neck angle. The patient quite enjoys her natural look and improvement.
