Case of the Month – August 2017 – Facelift with Chin Implant

The patient is a woman in her early 50’s who has facial aging made more apparent by large weight loss and a small chin.  She had a facelift  with chin augmentation.  Patients with large weight loss suffer from particularly poor skin elasticity.  Patients more frequently seek treatment for breast and body, but for face as well.  Minimal approaches to facial aging are not effective in the setting of poor skin elasticity.  A chin implant is especially helpful to redistribute extra neck skin.
