36 year old female, 5’7″ She was seen in both the Scottsdale and Mesa plastic surgery offices for evaluation of her face, neck and brow. She had liposuction to the her neck prior to seeing Dr. Wilson. The neck skin was loose and she had a small chin which made the neck and jawline indistinct and full. Her brow was heavy and low creating hooding to her eyes and making them look small. Although she was only 36 years old she required a full facelift (rhytidectomy) to remove the loose skin in the neck and jowl area. A small chin implant was used to shape the jawline. An endoscopic brow lift was done to remove the tired look, open the eyes and raise the brow to a more aesthetic position. No surgery was performed on the eyelids themselves just brow. After surgery she made and interesting observation. She said that she felt more confident and people listened to her ideas more than prior to her plastic surgery. That is quite a positive comment on facial plastic surgery.
