From Dr. Lampert:
This patient is now 3 months post-operative after a high SMAS face and neck lift with upper and lower cosmetic eyelid surgery (or blepharoplasty) and facial fat grafting. Her priority was a refreshed and natural look. Her dermatochalsis (or excess eyelid skin and eyelid fat bags) was treated with minimal fat and skin excision. Greater focus on fat and skin re-draping helps preserve a more natural correction. A more athletic and defined jaw line was naturally achieved after removal of deep neck fat. Shaving of the submandibular glands was also performed prior to tightening of the neck platysma muscle. Facial fat grafting was performed to the lips, tear troughs, temples, naso-labial folds, and alar regions to highlight the "high cheek bone" region. Well hidden scars within the hairline and behind the ear continue to soften and fade over the course of the year. Face and neck lift patients are allowed to return to more strenuous exercise between 4-8 weeks.X
