- Dr. Inessa Fishman
This 54-year-old woman was bothered by a lack of definition at her jawline and unwanted fulness under her chin. Facial plastic surgeon Dr. Inessa Fishman treated her with an isolated deep plane neck lift, which is a surgical procedure to contour the jawline and neck and remove too-low and too-large parts of fat pads, muscles and salivary glands under the jawline. Dr. Fishman also placed a small chin implant to give the patient’s chin more definition and projection. The entire surgery was done in our office, with the patient awake and relaxed with by-mouth medications and laughing gas. The patient’s only scar is hidden in the natural crease under her chin. She is shown 1.5 months out from treatment.
About Face Lift Procedure
A surgical facelift is the most powerful facial rejuvenating procedure to treat deepened smile lines, jowls, and excess tissue along the jawline. With advancing years, stress, weight fluctuations, and hormonal changes, we develop signs of aging, and patients note that these changes often make them feel look older, more tired, or less capable than they actually feel. It is common for our patients to undergo surgical face and neck rejuvenation to help match their inner vibrant sense of self with their external appearance; and with demanding and challenging careers, enticing hobbies and travel plans, and fulfilling family obligations, it’s no wonder that men and women in Atlanta and around the country undergo facelifting and necklifting to put their best face forward! Our facial plastic surgeon Dr. Inessa Fishman commonly performs facelift surgery in combination with a neck lift and blepharoplasty (or eyelid surgery).
