Case-6643

Details:

Procedure:

Facial Rejuvenation, Fat Transfer, Blepharoplasty

Procedure Notes:

This is a 47-year-old professional woman who is concerned about her appearance, which she feels makes her look “stern” or “unhappy” when she in fact is not. Although she is very bright, energetic and happy on the inside, she feels that this “unhappy” appearance is having a negative effect on how she is interpreted socially and professionally. As we got to know this patient, we began to see how incredibly talented, positive and enthusiastic she truly is. However, she said she feels that her “stern” and “unhappy” appearance is causing people to “misread” how she feels about them.

After discussing her concerns and goals in detail, we designed a treatment plan that included endoscopic upper facial rejuvenation with a temporal and brow lift. She opted to have a simultaneous eyelid blepharoplasty, with the lower eyelid blepharoplasty performed via an internal approach (i.e., no external scars). This was designed to take away her eyelid bags and circles. She also opted for lower face and neck lifting, which were particularly helpful in lifting the areas that had become lax over time. Fat injections placed in the deep creases of her face and lips were important additions to her treatment plan, as these injections helped restore the areas that had become deflated with aging. To help in the planning stages, this patient brought in pictures of how she looked in her early 20’s. This helped give us a better idea of the ideal position of her eyebrows and other key artistic facial features and proportions including her lips that were restored with fat injections. The photos helped guide us on how to appropriately restore the areas of her face that had become deflated, to ensure a very natural appearance. This patient’s incisions were carefully hidden around her ears and in her scalp. An endoscope was used in order to limit the incision size and to provide a magnified visualization on a high resolution monitor of her important anatomy so we could perform this sophisticated rejuvenation.

We are also now seeing patients in the office again following all guidelines and taking every precaution possible to provide an incredibly safe environment for all patients and staff.

Further, if you are seeking any services or surgery in 2020, we are anticipating an increase in price soon to deal with operating room fee increases.

We will continue to be here virtually for all those who prefer to have consultations in the comfort of their home.

Our online virtual consultations have been a very popular option for patients from as far away as Asia as well as usual coast to coast patients from New York to California, Oregon to Florida and many in New England.

Our virtual web consultations can be done right in the comfort of your own home, all you need is a secure internet connection and a computer, tablet or smartphone! We have 5 main steps we aim to accomplish with the virtual consultation:

  1. We listen to each patient carefully to establish exactly what it is they are looking for.
  2. We will give instructions to each patient on the specific pictures we will need from them as part of the virtual consultation. We send out sample pictures of just what we need, and the patient can send back their pictures that replicate this.
  3. We have chosen specific before and after photos of Dr Sullivan’s patients in order to show the patients what a prospective patient can expect (note, individual results will vary).
  4. We plan out and together come up with what we think is going to be a superb treatment plan for them.
  5. Finally, we find a time that is best for them that we can get this done.

We welcome you. Please come - we are open & here for you. If you would like to have a VIRTUAL CONSULTATION or an IN PERSON CONSULTATION or have any questions at all, please give us a call at 401-214-5121 or contact us via the website to set up your virtual consultation today!
