Facelift - Fat Transfer
Lena is an aesthetician / skin care specialist and has a great appreciation for beauty. In her youth, Lena was a national fashion model in her native country of Sweden. Lena wanted a more refreshed look to her face and neck as she did not like the looseness of her skin, especially in the jawline and neck. She also noticed that her face was becoming thinner in the last few years and wanted some more fullness.
Lena underwent a mini lower face and necklift surgery with fat grafting to her cheeks and temples. There are variations of facelift surgery and her preference was to undergo the procedure under local anesthesia. The skin and muscle layer of her face was elevated to a more youthful and natural position without giving her the look of someone that has undergone surgery. A small amount of her own fat taken from her stomach area was placed in her mid and upper face to create a softer look. The fat injected is living, viable cells and has the ability to last for several years.
Her result is subtle yet significant. She looks younger but it is almost impossible to notice that she has undergone cosmetic surgery. Her surgical incisions are also very difficult to notice. She is extremely happy with her result and feels the she looks several years younger.
Procedures performed: Mini face and neck lift, minimal lipografting (fat transfer) to face.
