This patient kept her weight down as she aged but unfortunately she was more prone to facial sagging because of loss of the soft tissue fullness that helps to maintain a youthful appearance. Her main concerns were sagging around the jowels and corners of her mouth, and loose, sagging skin in her neck. She underwent a standard facelift to correct these problems and photos are shown before and 6 months after surgery. Note the improvement in jaw and neck line contour seen in the side views.

This patient came to Dr. Fata because of the appearance of his neck. The pre-operative photo shows a very wide angle between the jaw line, which should be horizontal, and the edge of the neck skin. His jaw line was also poorly defined so that you could not see the transition between the face and the neck. He underwent a face and neck lift with most of the work concentrated on the neck, including a limited muscle release to improve the angle between the chin and lowest point on the neck. Pictures were taken before and 6 months after surgery. Note the improved definition of the jaw line and improved angle between the face and neck.
