Case 136

Facelift, Neck Lift, Surgical

Performed By: Dr. Susan M. Hughes

A vibrant 68 year old woman who was unhappy with her droopy upper lids, and facial and neck sagging and her sun damaged skin over the last 3 years. It was disappointing to see herself in recent photographs, and that was what inspired her to come in for a consultation.While she knew she needed a facelift, she was afraid of a pulled unnatural look.Her distress over her appearance won out over her fears, especially when she was told about our full facelift performed through a small s shaped incision with a 7-10 day downtime. The neck lift would be done with the facelift, and both would be supplemented with yag laser tightening done under the skin for a firmer result.The pigmented skin of her face, neck and chest really made her feel old.Since facial wrinkles were not the target, intense pulsed light treatments were superboosted with and aminolevulinic acid peel done at the same time as her facial surgery. This was also done on her face, neck and chest. Because her eyebrows were in good position, especially for her age, only an upper lid blepharoplasty was done at the same time.She is shown before and 3 weeks after her surgery.
