Facelift After Weight Loss
- Posted on: Oct 2 2014
It is not uncommon to experience loose skin following dramatic weight loss. This patient of Dr. Thompson’s was already concerned about her neck area and only felt worse after working hard and losing a lot of weight. She decided to get a facelift after weight loss by Dr. Thompson at Utah Facial Plastics. Dr. Thompson lifted and tightened the skin and underlying muscle (SMAS layer) to restore her jawline, neck and lower face. Plastic surgery changed her life and she couldn’t be happier. She sent her facelift before and after pictures to Dr. Thompson with this sweet testimonial below:
I just wanted to say thank you so much for helping me feel better about myself. I have had loose skin and a thicker neck for so long and was so self conscious about it. After losing some weight I thought it would help. I only felt worse about it. Even the day after surgery when the bandages came off and I saw a picture, I just cried. I was so happy. I hadn’t had a jaw and cheekbones for years. I just wanted to thank you and your staff for making me feel so comfortable about doing the surgery and being there to help me through it. You are a very caring Dr. and an awesome surgeon. Thank you……”
We love hearing plastic surgeon reviews about Dr. Thompson from our patients and have many in our testimonials section.
Dr. Thompson’s facelift technique differs from a typical facelift technique in that it is more comprehensive. A traditional facelift works well for lifting loose jowls but is inadequate for treating significant neck laxity and completely overlooks the mid-face. Dr. Thompson’s preferred facelift is extensive in lifting and tightening the neck, jowls, and mid-face area for long-lasting results.
Dr. Thompson specializes in facelift surgery and performs 3 times the amount of facelifts per year than the average plastic surgeon in the United States. With extensive training as a facial plastic surgeon and 10 plus years of experience performing numerous facelift surgeries, one can be confident they’ll receive the best results possible.
