Though her brow looked as if it were untouched by time, this 72 -year-old patient struggled with the way the skin was maturing on the lower half of her face. Thin skin created deep lines on the soft surface of her neck, causing light permanent banding down her neck. Jowls formed on either side of her chin, as the skin under neck began to sag. She also noticed smile lines striping down her cheeks and puffiness under her eyes. She decided to speak with Dr. Kassir about a facelift, but after the consultation decided that a lower blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) and fractional laser resurfacing paired with the facelift would give her the ideal result. A facelift is often paired with a blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) in order to give the face a completely lifted, yet natural, appearance. Our patient had bags under her eye that were caused by fat deposits accumulating underneath the surface. These were removed during the eyelid lift and the skin was pulled back to smooth the surface of the skin, giving her eyes a more alert, youthful look. Our patient also had Fractional Laser Resurfacing done to her face and neck. The fractional laser improves skin tone and pigmentation, smoothes lines and wrinkles, and erases signs of sun damage and acne scarring. Because it is “wounding” the skin in order to generate collagen buildup, scabbing and redness most likely will occur. Most patients normally need 5-7 days to heal before returning to work, so it pairs perfectly with the recovery time for a facelift and/or eyelid lift.

When I visit Dr. Kassir's office I feel like I am with family. His staff is professional and knowledgeable and Dr. Kassir's results are so natural. He does excellent face work-he truly has an eye for creating masterpieces and I trust him with my face without a doubt.
