Procedure Details

40 year old woman before and after a mini facelift and upper eyelid blepharoplasty. Her complaints included the decent of the cheeks and jowls and deepening of the nasolabial fold. There were no real problems with the brow position or the neck. She also was unhappy with the extra skin seen on her upper eyelids.
