At 57 yrs. old, this patient was looking to appear just a bit younger so we did a Full SMAS Facelift, sanding around the mouth and a lift of all four eyelids.

A 64 yr. old gentleman who wintered here in AZ and came in complaining that he hated his neck for a long time and as we talked we discovered he wasn’t too crazy about his jowls either! We did a full Facelift with tightening of the under layer (SMAS) and at 13 months post op he looks much more refreshed and not over done. As is with the case with most men, less can be more. Doing too much with a male face can actually make them look worse!
52 yr. old who came in reporting that it was time to think about having some work done. She was looking just to be a bit more refreshed. She had lost some cheek volume and did not like the wrinkles around her mouth. She also had lost a nice clean jaw line. In surgery, we did a Facelift with tightening of the under structures as well (SMAS lift). We did a tuck on all four eyelids (Quad Blepharoplasty) and some sanding (dermabrasion) around the mouth, which really has helped with the wrinkles. She says that people started telling her they had not noticed how blue her eyes were before!
This 64 year old woman came to me with a very common complaint...she hated her neck. She was fine with everything else but that. A neck lift is really a lower 1/3 of a face lift and neck lifts are one of the few times when you can be very aggressive because a tight neck doesn't change your face! With this patient, she still looks like herself, but with a much more youthful jawline and her incisions are the ear lobe and behind are well hidden. It was just what she wanted!
