Lower Face/Neck Lift
Natural aging, weight loss, and genetics create the little lines, sags, and bags that make you look older than you are. A neck lift (platysmaplasty) is often done as part of a face-lift to reduce fat deposits and sagging skin on the neck.
If you want to appear more well rested, an eyelid lift might be just what you’re looking for. It tightens skin and redistributes the fatty tissues around your eyes. Excess skin on the upper eyelids is easily removed under local anesthesia in the office.
Fat Grafting to Face
Fat grafting, also known as a fat transfer, is the most natural way to add volume and contour to your body, in the most minimally invasive way possible.
Frequently asked questions
An upper eyelid operation removes extra skin so that the eyelashes and upper-lid have a pleasing contour. A lower eyelid operation smoothes out the skin and fat so that there is a pleasing curve from the cheek to the lower eyelashes, improving the baggy contour that was there previously. Consult with Dr. Jones to discuss procedures that would complement your eyelid lift.
Anyone who is able to describe the problem with their eyelids is a good candidate for this surgery. A full consultation with Dr. Jones will help frame your expectations for the surgery.
This is not a generally a painful procedure. The upper eyelids can be easily done under local anesthesia in office. The lower eyelids may require general anesthesia to do the surgery properly. The sutures are invisible. Minor swelling and bruising will be gone in 10-14 days.
A face and neck lift can help you if you’re self-conscious about the way you’re aging. You may also consider a facelift if you look older than you feel or an aged appearance is negatively affecting self-esteem. An ongoing smoking habit will disqualify a patient for a facelift.
Depending on the extent of the work done on your face or neck, expect to recover in about 2 weeks. Heavy exercise may need to be put on hold for a month or longer.
Any bruising and swelling resulting from the surgery should resolve considerably in 10-14 days. You’ll need to carefully protect your face from the sun post surgery. Dr. Jones will let you know when it’s acceptable to wear makeup again.
You can’t stop aging, but a face and neck lift can set back the clock. You will look far younger than you would if you didn’t have the surgery. To preserve your results for longer, maintain a healthy weight and keep up a regular skin care regimen that fights aging. Continued vigilance about sun exposure is a great way to keep your skin looking healthy.
