Facelift Patient 37**
About This Patient
This 47 year old had chosen to have a lower lid blepharoplasty with Dr. Parker 8 years earlier and was very happy with her results. She recently returned to Dr. Parker asking if he could also help her treat laxity she was seeing in her mid and lower face. She felt her face was dropping and that her jowls had become more prominent. Dr. Parker discussed options with the patient, then subsequently performed a mini short scar face lift along with fat injections to the face. The patient sailed through her procedure and recovery very well. She is extremely happy with the natural but more youthful look she has obtained. Note how her cheek bones are fuller and higher, her jowls are gone, and her jawline and neck have cleaner lines. In addition, her skin looks much healthier. We believe this is due to the injections of fat and stem cells which has been shown to improve the health and appearance of the skin.
