Short scar facelift or S lift NJ
In the last blog I wrote about how important was the harmony and balance in facial rejuvenation in the older patient. By older patient I usually refer to patients in their late sixties or seventies. Here I would like to write about younger patients who are coming with early signs of aging in whom there are several options. If the main problem is active lines, lines caused by a muscle action, the initial treatment is Botox or Dysport. Early nasolabial folds can be treated with fillers like Restylane, Juvederm or Radiesse.
I also see patients who are in their mid thirties and start showing laxity around the sides of their chin and early jowl formation. In these patients we have an interesting choice. Filling in the pre-jowl area is a way to camouflage the jowls. A short scar face lift or an S lift with just the pre-auricular scar and tightening of the deep layers will accomplish a more lasting results that could also be more economical in the long run. Again the natural look is a matter of balance and harmony. An artistic evaluation of the facial features will allow us to do the right amount of fillers, fat grafting and skin tightening to create rejuvenation as well as beautification. Results that would look natural because the surgery is imperceptible.
