This lovely 58 year old patient was in my office today only 13 days after I performed her #PlasticSurgery and I am just thrilled by her transformation!! Of course, this is very soon after the surgery, but many patients are curious about the early stages of recovery. I will be sure to post further pictures and videos as she fully recovers, but she already feels great and has resumed most of her normal activities days ago.
She was bothered by her sinking jawline, #jowls, sunken cheeks, marionette lines, sagging neck, and #platysmalbands. I performed two procedures that addressed these concerns. Firstly, I did an extended #deepplanefacelift. This state-of-the-art procedure involves dissecting under the #SMAS and the platysma muscle all the way from the upper cheek bones to five inches below the jawline. With this dissection, all the connective tissue attachments that are pinning down the face are released so the facial tissues can be repositioned rather than just pulled on, as is the case in so many facelifts – that’s why they look pulled! This operative approach permits a long-lasting (12-15 years) result that looks natural and totally refreshed. Just as important, I also performed a deep #necklift. This approach to the neck is performed by only a tiny percentage of plastic surgeons in the US and involves removing excess deep neck fat, muscle, and sometimes protruding saliva glands. This more complete neck surgery permits the full rejuvenation of the neck – a key goal for many patients. I’m so happy for this kind and accomplished woman and look forward to all the stages of her healing. Be sure to follow for further videos and pictures to track her progress. Tell us how you feel she’s doing for 13 days out from her surgery!
