As we age our skin loses its elasticity and firmness, causing it to droop or sag. This 66-year-old woman was unhappy with the loose skin along her jaw and neck line and decided to research plastic surgery in San Diego. She came across Dr. Richard Chaffoo and was impressed with his triple board certification so she decided to make an appointment.
At the consultation, she explained to Dr. Chaffoo her concerns about her "jowls" and desire for an overall facial rejuvenation. Dr. Chaffoo listened to her surgical goals and recommended both a face lift as well as liposuction of the neck and jowls. The face lift, he explained, would help to correct loose, sagging skin, while the liposuction would produce defined facial contours. She felt that she would benefit from the procedure and scheduled a face lift in San Diego.
Dr. Chaffoo made incisions along the natural creases of her face and tightened the muscles of the neck and cheeks. Excess fat and skin were removed in order to produce a beautifully sculpted facial shape. She and Dr. Chaffoo are very happy with the results.
