Facelift and Neck Lift Case 19



This patient in her early 50s was bothered by lower face and neck as well as her lower eyelids. We first performed a lower eyelid surgery. She loved the results and wanted to proceed with the next treatment. Therefore, we performed a lower facelift involving a cheek and neck lift as well as trimming of the platysma muscle (platysmal myectomy) with liposuction4 months later. You can see in the after photo how much better her neck and jawline are. Although she was never heavy or overweight, the after photo shows a slimmer face as a result of liposuction and resuspending the sagging tissues to their more youthful appearance. The after photo was taken four months postoperatively.
