What Other Procedures Would Make My Facelift Look Better?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I am interested in a facelift to get rid of my neck sagging and jowls. Is there anything else you see in my pictures that you think would be helpful to create a more refreshed and younger facial look? 

A: Thank you for your inquiry and sending your pictures. You would do really well with a lower facelift which will redefine your jawline and reshape the neck. You do have a bit of chin ptosis (roll of tissue on the underside of the chin and a small chin implant would be helpful to eliminate that and add to improvement in the entire jawline appearance. You do have a little extra skin on both eyelids (and just a bit of puffiness of the lower eyelid as well due to fat herniation so doing blepharoplasties at the same time (which is very common) would add to the overall facial rejuvenative effect. Your thinner skin and tissues also makes for a good outcome as these tissues show the effects of facial skin redraping the best as opposed to thicker heavier tissues. It is more common to do additional procedures with a facelift than to do a facelift alone.
