44 years old Beverly Hills facelift patient complaining of looking older that her age and not happy with her heavy cheek area.
Mini face lift – short scar
The patient looks like she has lost some weight and more rested. The volume has been shifted from the lower part of the face to the upper third creating a more triangular shape which is synonym of youth.
Again fillers are out of the question because of her already round face. Other non invasive modalities like thermage, fraxel or other laser procedures would have not been effective in shifting volume but only for tighten the skin. The short scar allows for a quick recovery and less visible option ideal for a younger patient.
