The ProceduresThe patient underwent a vertical facelift, cell-enhanced ( stem cell) facial rejuvenation, endoscopic minimally invasive brow lift, V.I.P. tension-free skin closure.

The History76 years old palm spring facelift patient with obvious signs of facial aging and sun damage.
The ProcedureVertical facelift and neck lift, endoscopic brow lift, lower blepharoplasty.
CommentThe results are drastic but natural. I older patients it is important to address all the aging structures of the face. Leaving out the neck, for example, would have created a mismatch between the upper and lower part of the face and a unnatural look.
OptionsJust volume enhancement with fat grafting would have not address the laxity of the skin.

The History44 years old Beverly Hills facelift patient complaining of looking older that her age and not happy with her heavy cheek area.
The ProcedureMini face lift – short scar
CommentThe patient looks like she has lost some weight and more rested. The volume has been shifted from the lower part of the face to the upper third creating a more triangular shape which is synonym of youth.
AlternativesAgain fillers are out of the question because of her already round face. Other non invasive modalities like thermage, fraxel or other laser procedures would have not been effective in shifting volume but only for tighten the skin. The short scar allows for a quick recovery and less visible option ideal for a younger patient.
