Case #2.

This lovely patient wanted to address her sagging jowls while restoring volume loss throughout the central face. Dr. Kolstad, a facial plastic surgeon in San Diego, performed a lower face and neck tightening procedure with large volume fat transfer. This is an ultimate anti-aging procedure as it lifts the eyes, cheeks, jowls and neck. Her cheek and jawline hollows are filled using her own fat, in this case >24 mLs added. A vertical facelift in combination with a fat transfer is a great way of restoring volume due to the natural aging process. Full face lifting is our most transformative procedure and comes with our signature natural result. This patient has also had an eyebrow lift with upper and lower eyelid surgery to complement the lower face and sagging jowls.

A vertical facelift, also known as a mid-face lift or jowl lift, focuses on lifting and tightening the skin and muscles around the cheeks and mouth. This procedure can improve the appearance of marionette lines, jowls, and nasolabial folds, restoring a more youthful contour to the face.
