Mini Facelift, Eyelid Surgery and, Fat Transfer in 71 Year Old Woman
71 year old female who came in for facial rejuvenation. In consultation, her main concerns were her lower face and jowls as well as the appearance of her eyes. We discussed improving her neck but she wasn’t particularly interested.
We developed a plan to perform
1. mini-facelift ( aka lower facelift ) which would elevate the tissue around the lower face and cheeks and have about a 60% improvement of the neck
2. Fat transfer to provide more volume to her face particularly in her cheeks, lower eyelid area, lips, and around her mouth
3. Upper and lower eyelid to remove extra skin but did not need to remove any fat.
The procedure was performed at the Loudoun Ambulatory Surgery Center under IV sedation anesthesia.
