Facelift and facial rejuvenation
#facelift and #facialrejuvenation
there are three areas that we look at:
- skin surface
- laxity of skin an muscle
These can all be addressed for you to get some rejuvenation. What procedure to perform is assessed on an individual basis. It sounds like you are looking for subtle results which may be achieved with non-surgical methods such as botox, fillers.
Rejuvenating the upper face is always an individualized process. Most of the time this can be accomplished in an outpatient setting in just a couple hours time. Adding volume to the upper face and cheek with fat from the abdomen or flanks in combination with a mini faelift this can safely and effectively change your appearance naturally.
Thank you for your question. Facial fillers designed for deep placement in the cheek area can be a great, non-surgical place to start. Cheek filler can uplift the cheeks/nasolabial folds and are not permanent. Fat grafting to the area is also a possibility and potentially a mid-face lift.
I recommend that you book an in-person consultation with a board certified Plastic Surgeon so that they may examine you and discuss your best options with you.
All the best!
Providing some pictures would have been advantageous in providing a better recommendation. Despite that, I think that you can accomplish what you want with a mini-facelift or facelift, depending on how your neck is aging. Also volume to the cheeks in the form of injectable (Voluma) or fat graft can also achieve a similar result in elevating the cheeks. Seek a consult with a board certified Facial Plastic Surgeon.

The best option to accomplish what you are decribing is a facelift. A "mini" facelift is usually very successful in the right candidate, and over 80% of the facelifts I do are mini (or minimal incision facelift).
What you are describing is an upper or mid-facelift. It can be accomplished surgically or with fillers or with your own fat. Consider a "vampire facelift" where the filler material is mixed with your own stems cells using a blood draw in the office, and centrifuge to harvest them from the blood. This puts your stem cells with the filler material exactly where you want it for volume and collagen building potential.
Fat grafting is also excellent because fat also carries the best stem cells in the body. Overlying skin quality improves as volume is restored underneath where you need it in the cheeks, nasolabial folds and sometimes lips.
Is there no surgery that can pull up and back across the cheek and nasolabial fold area..like a slight facelift?
Hi, there is but it entails shaping the cheek and face. This could mean removing excess facial fat and reshaping the cheeks with a dermal filler (I prefer Perlane now called Restylane Lyft) or using cheek implants for a permanent enhancement. Hope this helps.
Thank you for the question. Soft tissue fillers and mid-face lift can likely give results that you are suggesting. Fat grafting is also an option. Photos would be necessary to provide more definitive answers to your question. But, yes... there IS a surgery that can lift the cheeks and nasolabial folds.
Photos or an in person consultation would be required to know exactly what could provide you with the result you are looking for. If your concern is loss of volume, structural fat grafting could restore a youthful fullness. If your concern is lax skin, perhaps a mid facelift, or perhaps a combination of both. View many before and after photos photos to check the quality of a plastic surgeon's work and attention to detail in their results. Facial rejuvenation surgery should leave people looking younger, refreshed and natural.

a number of surgical and non-surgical options that can improve one's cosmetic
appearance: fillers, skin-tightening procedures, lasers, fat contouring, mini-lifts, mid-face lifts, neck
and face lifts. Each has benefits and drawbacks. Mini procedures, while beneficial in the appropriate patient, do not produce
the long lasting maximum improvement that is achieved with a natural appearing artistically
performed lift performed by an expert experienced plastic surgeon. The best
result is often achieved by a combination of elevating the sagging tissues, removing
the excess skin, contouring the fat, and adding micro-fat grafts or fillers
where there is a deficiency.
mind, that following the exact advice from a surgeon on this or any other
website who proposes to tell you what to do based without examining you,
physically feeling the tissue, assessing your desired outcome, taking a full
medical history, and discussing the pros and cons of the proposed operative
procedure may not be in your best interest. I would suggest you find a plastic
surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and ideally a member
of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) that you trust
and are comfortable with. You should discuss your concerns with that surgeon in
