Facelift surgery to tighten the jaw line
May 6, 2020
Thanks for sending in our photos.Yes a mini facelift would sharpen your jawline but probably have little effect on you neck.Many patients at your age are opting for strengthening the jawline with fillers to achieve a very similar effect.As a surgeon of course I am happy to offer surgical options for patients, but I have been seeing such nice results with fillers in our younger patients that I would likely recomend fillers at your stage.I recommend you consult a practice that does both.Good luck
Should I get chin implant to bring out the area between my lips and chin that dips in a little to
Perfect chin
May 6, 2020
You have a perfect chin! The depression half way between the chin and lips is called the "Mento-Labial sulcus" Directly behind the sulcus are the roots of your lower teeth. Because of this it's not possible to secure implants into this area. Chin implants are placed at the lower edge of the chin along the jaw bone. If you were to place a chin implant this would bring the chin more forward and make the sulcus look even deeper. Be carefull trying to fill the very small dimple as it might pro...

Reduction Rhinoplasty
Jan 15, 2020
Thanks for your question and for sending in your photos.You do have a unique nose but there are some changes you could make with Rhinoplasty that could improve how it fits in with your other facial features.Your nasal tip is over projected and perhaps slightly downturned .  Bringing this closer to the face would be helpful but be careful how much you do this. Bringing any facial feature inward on your side view will  make it look rounder on the front view. You also have thick skin and likely...

Treating surgical scars after a facelift
Oct 28, 2019
Thanks for sending your photosYour scars are quite normal. We often treat the facelift scars with BBL(Broad Band Light) as soon as the sutures are out. This helps a lot with the redness. Fractionated laser treatments can help flatten the scars as well as using Silicone gels. These treatments often result in the scar looking better sooner. In the end your scars will heal nicely without treatment as well.It just takes a little longerGood luck!
Does the lip lift procedure leave a scar?
Minimal scar after lip lift
Oct 28, 2019
A surgical lip lift requires skin to be removed in order to shorten the length of the upper lip. As with any surgical procedure where the skin is cut there will be a scar. The question really is, will it be noticeable?Skin type and propensity to scar are certainly factors that affect the final scar. Where the incisions are placed in order to camouflage their visibility is what we as surgeons can control.With a bullhorn lip lift the incisions are placed precisely at the junction of the nasal ...
