I'd also say the cutaneous adjustement was not brilliant, all that needs revision.
Regarding fat grafting I think this is not the cause of your deformities, since they normally disappear in the vast majority of cases and in 80% of its amount around 1 year after being inserted, therefore I'd blame the technique and the design of the skin undermining/resection.

I am sorry you are so disappointed with your result.

- I do see a disappointing result.
- I have seen a number of very thin women who have been unhappy with the result of fat grafts - even if it softens the face, it can make the face not look like oneself.
- A face lift revision is likely to give you a lot of improvement in both the scar and the loose neck muscle.
- If there is fat under the chin from fat grafts, this can be removed or reduced at the time of surgery.
- The fat may not be the cause of the tightness you feel - it would need an examination to suggest whether the tightness is from the scars in the skin or possibly deeper.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon
