This man in his 60s had found he was looking increasingly tired and was looking to freshen up his appearance, particularly his eyelids, sagging jowl and neckline. He had never undergone previous cosmetic surgery and was concerned about looking too different or ‘plastic’.
He looked for a surgeon specialising in facial cosmetic and plastic surgery. At his consultation, Dr De Silva discussed with him the benefits and downsides of surgery, the recovery period and expectations from surgery.
The skin along his jaw had begun to sag with time, leaving his jaw looking uneven and giving him a web of excess skin below his chin.
In men, the neck and jawline are often more important than the lower part of the face as it gives to a natural result, and for this patient, he and his surgeon decided that a combination with eyelid surgery would give the best result.
During the surgery, Dr De Silva made carefully make incisions and then lifted the tissue and muscles under the skin.
The after photographs show a more rejuvenated appearance with fresher-looking eyes, face and neck. His recovery was relatively quick, with minimal discomfort. The patient was very pleased with the results of his surgery.
