Not every aging face needs a facelift - Fat Transfer + Laser Resurfacing

Procedure Details

This procedure on this 80 year old patient dramatically demonstrates that not everyone benefits from a facelift or other nip or tuck. We want to provide the procedure that makes the most sense to the patient. This patient, who came in with general complaints of facial aging came in thinking she wanted a facelift. She wasn't particularly concerned about the neck. Her before image shows that she did not have a lot of facial droop or extra skin. Her issues were more related to severe wrinkling of her skin as well as volume loss in her cheeks and around her mouth. I felt that she would be able to get some skin elevation simply by adding back volume in her face. She underwent a fat transfer and a laser resurfacing + PRP procedure only. This was performed with awake anesthesia with fat taken from her abdomen. PRP growth factors were processed from her blood and mixed with the fat and injected into the cheeks, around her mouth and lips, and in her temples. Laser Resurfacing using a Sciton Laser Platform in our Lansdowne, Virginia office in Loudoun County. The laser was able to shrink the skin and rejuvenate her skin cells. She asked for the procedure as a Christmas Gift.
