This lovely 63-year-old was seen by Dr. Brace to address her concerns of both neck and nose. Having undergone a previous facelift by another surgeon, she had persistent bilateral submental fullness and a central submental depression. In terms of her nose, she felt it was just overall too big and she had occasional right obstruction.
Dr. Brace performed a deep plane facelift with submentoplasty to address the platysma and digastric muscles with an open approach septorhinoplasty to narrow her midvault & refine her nasal tip. This patient also underwent CO2RE resurfacing which is an incredibly powerful addition to anyone considering a full face rejuvenation.
While a facelift tightens and lifts sagging facial skin and muscles to rejuvenate your face, it does not address age-related damage to your face and neck as it is not confined to sagging skin. It also shows up as age spots, rough skin texture, hyperpigmentation, and wrinkles. For these signs of aging, you’ll need laser skin resurfacing to achieve the rejuvenation you want. Combining a facelift with CO2 laser skin resurfacing is a popular option for many people wanting the full gamut of facial aging.
