Will A Lower Facelift Make Me Look Years Younger?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I’m not familiar with much of plastic surgery vocabulary but what I’d like is for my face to look years younger.
From what I can see, there is volume loss, and loose skin (including double chin, there is barely any fat under the chin but still looks like double chin).
I am scared of fillers because they need to be refreshed every few months and overtime give you a puffy look. I’m also scared of RF Microneedling or Ultrasounds because they have melted face-fat for many people based on pictures I’ve seen.
A mini facelift (for MEN) before/after picture seems like it can reverse aging significantly and does not require repeat visits every few months.
But please analyze my pictures and let me know what you think is the safest and best procedure and cost.
I’ve attached a picture from low-angle too.
A: If the goal is to improve the double chin and lax skin along the jawline, and that is what you feel will make you look year younger, then you are correct in that only a lower facelift will most effectively create that change. This is not what fillers are used for anyway and any non-surgical treatments (like RF) pale in comparison to their results of that of a surgical lower facelift.
