Case Studies
Face Lift Surgery (Rhytidectomy)

This patient's main concern was regarding the lower portion of her face and neck. Initially, we discussed performing a mini-facelift in order to keep the procedure more minimally invasive. I explained to her that the mini-facelift would tighten the jowls; however, it would not address the neck muscle bands (platysmal bands) and only a platysmaplasty would address them ["plast"-ic surgery of the platysmal muscles] in other words a "necklift". If the mini-facelift was performed, her neck profile would essentially be unchanged. By adding the necklift, this would create an angle between her chin and neck. She was an ideal candidate for a lower face and necklift, because she had good bone structure, reasonable facial volume, and very little fat in her neck.

What should I expect with the Threadlift procedure and the cost?

Dr. Yang performed a neck lift, lower face lift and fat graft (upper eye lids). The results have given me a new feeling about myself and countless compliments. It is not a 'look at her facelift' compliment. People just can't figure out why I look so good. Dr. Yang is truly an artist and future star (if not already) in his field. I highly recommend him for any facial procedure. P.S. I was awake throughout, and we talked through it all.
