CAN YOU IMAGINE!! This is a 52 year old lady who presented with a request for improving her facial appearance. During the consultation we discussed the issues of the aging process that are bothersome to the patient and this included the loose skin of the neck and face along with the tired appearance of her eyes. I usually ask the patients what bothers them the most and then ask if I can be outwardly critical of anything that I feel can be improved with the patient. This is a very constructive way of doing the interview in that it gives us the ability to be totally open about any features that the patient may or may not see. In this case, we totally agreed that the improvements to her face would involve tightening her facial skin, taking away the excess skin from the eyelids and also removing some of the fatty pads of the upper and lower lids. In this way we will make the patient's face fresher and allow her to avoid any further comments about "gee, did you get enough sleep last night" etc. The eyelids are more puffy in the morning because the fatty pads that you see are swollen during the night like a sponge soaking up water but during the day some of the fluid that accumulated is drained by gravity. However, in this patient there is still a very striking "tired' look of her eyes even to the point that you cannot see the brightness of her eyes. This is important in that if there is a distraction of someone looking at you talking or even watching you, the "crowded" appearance of the eyes overwhelms the beautiful features of the eyes. Our objective is not to give the "Joan Rivers" look or overdo the facelift and eyelid surgery. It is to make a fresher look. The best facelift is the one that you do not really know was done but comments such as "you look very rested today" or "gee, did you change your lipstick" are good indications that your objectives have been met. In the post op pictures, you are seeing the patient at 2 months. She will go on to improve even more but are you not now completely drawn to her eyes and nice skin of her face and saying "wow, beautiful eyes" or "nice skin". If you did not see the pre op pictures, would you really know that this lady had a facelift and eyelid surgery? If not, then the approach and result demonstrate the wonderful effects of a facelift and eyelid surgery. Of course, the surgery is done as a combination procedure and is done as an outpatient. Post operatively, there is usually very little discomfort and it is easily treated by medications. Pretty girl eh? Confidence is Beautiful.
