 Q: Lower Facelift and Other Options for a 66-year-old?

A: Lower facelift in 66-year-old

While it is said that the full impact of a facelift in general, is in the neck and jaw line, the added benefit of restoration of cheek fullness using newer suspension and fat filling techniques, makes a full face lift more satisfying for someone over 60.

The limited scar methods, thread lifts, quick lifts, lifestyle enhancement lifts all attempt to provide a nice smoothing with suspension alone, but most of these cases that are presented have suspension with other treatments including muscle tightening, cheek restoration, eyelid and brow procedures, and skin resurfacing.

A classic neck lift called a Cervicoplasty is a good operation which addresses everything you could possibly do for a sagging aging neck. For those patients opting just for this, they often return pleased but say, oh I wish we did more in the cheeks as you mentioned in the consultation. Some patients have nice cheek fullness and good skin, so that other things like laser, chemical peels, cheek implants, etc can be done at the same time or if further enhancements are desired later, after a well done neck lift.
