Yes, there is a lot to do and can be done to enhance the appearance for the positive. The jowls, the wrinkles, the hooding of the eyes, the sunken cheeks and other age related changes can be improved with surgery and other modalities.
However, I highly recommend that it be done when a patient is in a good place emotionally, socially, financially and of course in good physical health.
Doing such surgery in a depressed state of mind is not going to make one feel better.
I wish you well in your life.
Stop smoking then address concerns
Nonsurgical treatments such as fillers can help address your concerns, along with a brow or eyelid lift to address sagging lids. Regardless what you do, however, please try to stop smoking as the habit will only make your appearance worse.
Turning back time after tragedy
- I am sorry life has been so hard,
- I hope you have stopped smoking - important for a good surgical result,
- Your description suggests that blepharoplasty, fat transfers, a mid-face lift and face/neck lift
- Combined with skin care and at a later time, a resurfacing peel or laser might restore your looks.
- Best wishes.
A customized approach will work best.
sorry to hear about the past troubles you’ve had, and agree that the right
combination of procedures can likely address many of your concerns. The first
step is to find a board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in facial
rejuvenation, and work closely with him or her to determine the best approach
for you. From your description, you may be able to see very positive results
from a facelift for fallen jowls along with BOTOX® for crow’s feet and eyelid
surgery for your hooded lids. Deep wrinkles around the mouth can be improved
with dermal fillers and resurfacing, while fat transfer can restore some volume
to the mid face. Of course, an in-person consultation will give you a far
better idea of your options.
Correction of jowls, eyelid hooding and sunken cheeks
A combination of facelift, upper blepharoplasty and possible filler or fat injection to restore volume in your cheeks may be your best option.
However you need to consult a plastic surgeon for an in person examination and consultation.
It is essential that you refrain from smoking or taking nicotine and any form for at least 5-8 weeks before facelift surgery.
Facial Rejuvenation Procedures
Without photos it is hard to mention specific surgical procedures. However from your description you should ask your plastic surgeon about a face lift, fat transfer or fillers to your cheeks, and eyelid surgery. Peels, Dermabrasion or Laser treatment might be beneficial for your lines about your lips.
I Am Feeling and Looking Aged? What Surgery Do You Recommend?
In the first place, you need a caring plastic surgeon who can help you sort out what is bothering you most, taking into account your psychological and physical health. There is no formula for facial rejuvenation and no one approach is suitable for all. Surgery may be the best way to restore a youthful, more refreshed look, but there adjuncts, like lipo-filling, laser resurfacing, medical skin care, that can go a long way to making you look and feel better. While re-suspension of the fallen facial tissues with a facelifting procedure is the most powerful way to obtain facial rejuvenation, there are many adjuncts that are used with and without a facelift that can helpful.
It is good to quit smoking since smokers age about ten years faster than their twins, studies have shown, and smoking makes facelift surgery more prone to skin necrosis.
All of these issues would be addressed when you have an in person consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon
58 yr old female with fallen jowls, hooded eyes, sunken cheeks, and wrinkles.
Hello and thank you for your question.
You give a lot of information about both your physical state and emotional contributing history. All these things will help you and your Plastic Surgeon put together options of what is best for you physically and fits your state emotionally.
It would appear from your information that you will benefit enormously from a facelift with eyelid tuck(blepharoplasty). However, that's just based on the little information I have at hand.
I recommend you sit face-to-face with a Plastic Surgeon. Let him accurately assess your face and neck, and listen to your concerns and who you are. That way he can discuss with you, and arrive at options for your treatment. Even with the best of intentions, an online forum cannot give you appropriate and accurate assessment.
As Specialist Surgeons, we have a whole repertoire of surgical and non-surgical options available. You may be best treated with some combination of these.
I hope I have been of some help. Good luck in your search to find the best alternatives for you.
Facial changes of aging, wrinkles jowls and hooded eyelids
The hooded upper eyelids are best treated with an upper blepharoplasty to remove excess skin and a small amount of fat in the upper lids.
A comprehensive lower face neck lift can address tightening up the jowls, removal of neck fatty deposits, tightening the facial and neck muscles and tightening up loose facial and neck skin.
For many examples, please see the link below
Facial rejuvenation surgery generally well received and a 58-year-old.
Without a photograph it is impossible to comment specifically. However most patients age synchronously so a full facelift often times combines eyelid surgery would yield an excellent result.
