This patient has a very youthful self-image which was, however, not being portrayed. Genetic aging was making her look tired and had taken away the sparkle she had when younger. She was referred to Toronto Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Marc DuPéré, by her doctor, for an assessment and treatment options that would give her back a youthful but natural appearance.
At her consultation with cosmetic plastic surgeon Dr. Marc DuPéré, it was suggested that the optimal procedure would be a facelift or rhytidectomy, including upper eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty); the goals being to remove the excess skin that gave her the heavy jowls, the ‘crepey’ wrinkled neck along with the heavy eyelids. Dr. DuPéré also suggested a fat transfer (aka fat grafting) to replace lost volume but also to replenish and stimulate her facial stem cells; fat was harvested from areas with unwanted fatty deposits and transfer delicately, in several layers, to her face, cheeks, jawline, lips, laugh lines, peri-ocular regions, temples, etc., all to softly sculpt her face and to enhance her lips.
The patient with her husband decided that the facelift, eyelid or blepharoplasty surgery with the fat transfer would give her the results she wanted. The surgical date was booked.
The after-pictures are 5 weeks post surgery and show a wonderful transformation that is both youthful and natural. The muscles in the neck have been tightened, the excess skin lifted and removed, the excess skin and fat removed from her upper eyelids. To complete the rejuvenation, Dr. Marc DuPéré liposuctioned fat from her middle area and outer thighs (aka saddle deformities) and transferred the fat to re-shape and restore volume to her cheeks, under eye hollows, temples, jaw line and lips. The results are fantastic and the patient is ecstatic and extremely happy!
