47-Year-Old Euless Female Desired Sculpted Neck Without a Face or Neck Lift
This patient had sagging cheeks, prominent marionette lines, jowls of the midface. Additionally, she had a moderate thickness fat pad of the neck, mild to moderate laxity of the skin, and visible platysma muscle bands. In short, she was an ideal candidate for a lower facelift (cheek and neck) but did not want a facelift. She understood that the skin laxity and appearance of the platysma muscle bands could be made worse after removal of the bulk of fat. The lax skin and the platysma at a minimum limited the effectiveness of liposuction. Procedure Details: The patient underwent Power Assisted LIposuction under general anesthesia at Baylor Medical Center at Trophy Club. All surgery was performed through three very small incisions (~1/4 inch each)- one at the angle of the jaw, and one under the chin in the natural crease. 350 cc's of tumescent fluid was infiltrated into the neck to reduce bruising and potential blood loss. The volume removed was 175 cc's using a 3 mm followed by a 1.2 mm cannula. This procedure was performed without complication and the recovery was unremarkable. After about 10 to 15 days the patient was able to be in the public eye (with makeup of course). The patient was very happy with her results, and the results exceeded her expectations based on my explanation of the limitations. The patient was particularly thrilled with the definition of her jawline with improvement in her jowls. She loved her profile!More
