I had jaw surgery (lefort osteotomy and bsso) and ever since the skin on the left side of my face sags a little bit. It isn’t too noticeable until I smile. When I smile my skin bunches up on the left side of my face. I have tried laser and radio frequency treatments to no avail. Is there anything I can do besides a facelift and anything I can do at home to help improve it until I can afford a procedure? Please help.
Ask a Surgeon
Can a mini facelift be done under local anesthesia?
Am I a candidate for a second mini-lift, the first one being nine years ago. I'm also looking into a first time neck lift. I am a 65 year old female in good health, nonsmoker, etc. Could the results be compromised or less than optimal because of the previous surgery? My friend had ripples on her cheeks after the above. She also had a previous facelift. She is one month out. Is that to be expected?
