Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary.
This 52-year-old woman complained that she looked older than she really was. After a consultation with Dr. Sterry in New York, he performed upper and lower eyelid surgery before a full facelift, which was done 2 weeks later. Note the shortened distance from the lower eyelashes to the top of the cheek in the postop picture.
Skin, muscle, and fat removal with incision along lash line
Local anesthetic only
Her recovery was hampered by the fact that we went back to the operating room for the facelift 2 weeks later. However, she would have been ready for the gym by 2 weeks.
