Facelift and Neck Lift Case 18



This patient in her 50’s is 11 weeks out following a full facelift including the forehead, temple, cheek, and neck areas. In addition, she had an upper and lower blepharoplasty plus upper and lower lip augmentation and advancement. She notes that she looked at a picture from her 30’s and following her surgery she looks the same. Dr. Guy frequently says the goal of surgery is to restore you to how you looked 12-15 years ago, and this patient did that and more. Yet, nothing about her looks “done,” which is the natural look that Dr. Guy looks to create for you. You can see how the hollowness in her cheeks seen in the picture above has been replaced with the soft tissue that had sunken down to create her jowls. The sagging skin of her neck is now rejuvenated all the way down to her collarbone. In the picture below and to the left you can see the overall improvement in her appearance from her eyebrows down to her neck. What you don’t are her incisions as Dr. Guy planned them to be in natural transitions of her face. As you can expect, this patient was ecstatic with her result.
