This patient came to me on a "mission", which was to fight the aging process. Although noninvasive and minimally invasive procedures are appropriate in this situation, she made it clear that she was not looking for fillers or botox. She wanted her face back to where it was a few years ago. I created a treatment plan which involved performing a lower facelift under local anesthesia. Although she had some mild-moderate swelling after the procedure, she was out in public within 3 days. Her bruising was almost nonexistent. Her after picture is about 12 months from the time of her procedure.
