I'm 38 and unhappy with laxity/sagging in my lower face, flatness in my mid-face and lack of
Chin implant
Jul 9, 2020
I would agree with a chin implant and you might consider fat injection for volume correction since you have already tried an HA filler.  Its best to go for a personal consultation.
Platysmaplasty at 37 for jaw definition?
What are your goals
Jul 7, 2020
I look at your pictures and it looks like nothing is needed. So I can’t determine your desired outcome without your assistance. It doesn’t look like platysmaplasty is needed. But I also don’t see the need for fillers based on the pictures. It’s probably best to post more pictures or you could even inquire with different plastic surgeons offices and send them pictures for an opinion or do a virtual consult, which is a service offered by many plastic surgeons.
How soon after a lower face and neck lift can I start doing other treatments like Botox, las
One month
Jul 5, 2020
The soonest you can proceed with any of these modalities is one month. However it is always wise to consult with your surgeon first.

Needs examination
Jul 3, 2020
At this point, you should go for a personal consultation to see what your options are.  Fillers are usually a great start to help with your appearance, but an examination is required.

Claustrophobia
Jul 2, 2020
I assume the reason for this question is your claustrophobia.  Its best to work with your surgeon on how to make the entire process more comfortable for you.  If the surgeon decides that a particular type of platysmaplasty is needed for your case, the recommendation is based on obtaining optimal results, which I think is also your goal in the long run.  If this is your actual concern, you might want to ask your doctor about Exparel to help with your post op discomfort.
What procedure would help me with sagging, sad-looking cheeks and chin? Looking for the most
Lower facelift
Jul 1, 2020
It looks as if you might benefit from a lower face lift and submental liposuction.  But its best to get a personal examination.
I'm 26, would I benefit from liposuction or should I get a neck lift?
Consider neck lift
Jul 1, 2020
If there's any chance that the fat is submuscular or that you have a strong platysma muscle, liposuction will not be enough.  But this can't be determined by pictures alone.  However, the picture looks like liposuction may not be enough.  Its best to get a personal examination.
Is a neck lift my only option?
Full range of options
Jun 24, 2020
Under non invasive approaches, botox is an option.  Aside from that, it looks like a muscle problem and not a skin problem.  The other option is a necklift.
38 jowling and platysmal bands. What procedures do I need?
Necklift
Jun 18, 2020
It looks as if you would benefit from at least a necklift.  A personal consultation would be needed to determine if you needed a facelift as well.
What's the best treatment for aging jaw and jowls of a 50 y.o. female?
Face and neck lift
Jun 17, 2020
I do see some irregularity along the jaw line, potentially loose skin and fat under the chin and a longer marionette line on the right side.  In order to completely address all of these observations, laser liposuction will not do it and a non surgical solution will not be long lasting.  A neck lift would address the neck; however, if you want the marionette line addresses, the complete solution would be a face and neck lift.
Best non-surgical fat removal option for me?
Both solutions
Jun 17, 2020
Because you have isolated areas for desired fat reduction, both modalities, warmsculpting and coolscuplting, should work.  Warm sculpting does tighten the skin slightly, whereas cool sculpting does not.
Sagging and crepey neck issues - not sure exact cause or condition, but wondering about trea
Neck lift
Jun 11, 2020
You appear to have vertical platysmal bands so a neck lift is the best option.  Its best to go for a personal consultation.
I am 19 years old and I am concerned about my face looking droopy. Is a facelift an alternat
Volume loss
Jun 8, 2020
It seems as if you have a problem with volume loss.  It looks as if it will require a fair amount of volume replacement in certain areas, and fillers may require a fair volume and will be needed repetitively as is their nature.  You might consider fat grafting, and I would recommend BeautiFILL as an alternative which is a fat grafting technique.
What are the best interventions for improving the appearance of my neck?
Lower face and neck lift
Jun 7, 2020
It looks like you would benefit from a lower face and neck lift. It’s best to get a personal evaluation.
What exact procedure do I need? Neck lift, facelift etc.
Face and neck lift
Jun 7, 2020
As far as I can tell, it looks like a lower face and neck lift would accomplish your needs. You probably don’t need a deep plane and need more than a mini.   At this point, you can probably be more efficient by doing remote evaluations because your evaluation seems straightforward.
