The Added Fat to My Face Looked So Good That I Went Back for More - Newport Beach

At age 46 I didn't like the sagging crepe like skin that was appearing on my cheeks so I had a fat transfer along with a facelift and brow lift in November 2009. I really loved the results. I didn't look pulled or altered just younger and refreshed. I have had many compliments.

A few months ago I decided I wanted to add more fullness to my face since many people tell me I am skinny. I had a second stage fat transfer and upper eyelid surgery just 10 days ago on November 11. I am still healing, but I am very happy with the results so far. I am liking the fullness the additional fat has added to my face. I know I will still lose about 10-15 percent of the volume as I heal, but things are looking good and I am healing nicely.

I am now 3 weeks post surgery. I like the fullness the additional fat has added to my face. The only swelling I have notice now is on my left side under my eye. I think this might be due to the fact that I sleep on my left side.

No more bruises, but only 2 red marks are left. One under my left eyebrow and 1 on my left cheek. These aren't doing much. But I know I bruise easily. My bruises from my facelift last year took 7 weeks to go away. I know I am still healing.

It is just after 6 weeks after surgery. The swelling under my left eye is gone. I have noticed that the extra fat in my upper cheeks has really helped reduce the appearance dark circles under my eyes. I no longer need to put concealer on to hide them.

Dr. Joseph Cruise

This is my 3rd surgery with Dr. C and I couldn't be happier with my experience each time. I have loved the results of my previous 2 surgeries (fat transfer/facelift then breast augmentation)so I am sure the results from this last surgery will be just as great. Not only is Dr. C an extremely skilled surgeon, he is also very personable and caring. His staff is wonderful and supportive as well. I felt just as important during my final post-op follow-up appointments as I did during my first consultation.
