Dr Lam, I will be having a consult with you on Feb 19, at 6am for me! So I wanted to throw these questions at you first, so I don't forget anything. I will be very tired when we speak
I would like to know exactly what muscles are treated during the neck/face lift, and how does this differ from a traditional neck lift? How are the platysimus muscles treated? How is that different from the traditional neck lift?
I like your aesthetic with the fat transfer. I will be having full face fat transfer. I have had my anterior cheeks, eyelids, temples and lips done 8 years ago. I need a touch up on anterior cheeks. I do not like the look of the buccal and medial buccal fill on me, it makes me not look like 'me'. I think there is some residual still there from last time. I tried to fill it more with synthetic filler, didn't like it at all, took it out immediately. I do however like the lateral buccal area filled. Is it ok with you that I skip some of the buccal area?
I need the U in the chin! I am worried about the Jay Leno look in the pre jowl. I would like to go conservative with this, which is why I am considering the neck lift with it, so I can pull up more so than fill in, or balance that out more. I do however want to fill in the lateral mandibular jaw area, into the lateral buccal area. Just not too much into the anterior area. I want the slight hollow there, so I still look like myself.
I have had my eye lids done previously. I have trouble looking up, always lifting my eyebrows. Will some more grafting in the temples pull these up laterally? Maybe a bleph, just some skin would help? I want to keep the fat.
I also want a very round look from temple to brow line. Right now I am too skeletonized in the brow for my taste. Will that make more heaviness in the brow?
I know you don't do much in lips with fat. I have had very successful fat transfer in lip area including the middle of the bottom lip itself. I would like to repeat that. also lift the top lip by filling in the 2 ridges above the mid top lip, under the nose, not sure what they are called. The corners of my lips point down. I am hoping to plump the lateral part, without changing them too much. I have thin lips and want them to look healthier not different too much. My lateral teeth area on the bottom lip has some atrophy, gets sucked under my eye teeth now. causes little creases. I hope to address that. In addition, my left lower lip is atrophied more than my right. I want to even that out. I want to use fat for it, because other fillers look horrible on me. Are you willing to try that on me?
Is it possible to do any laser resurfacing of forehead, chin or cheeks during this procedure? Or does it interfere with this procedure and should be done later? Should I have botox first to prevent fat shift while healing?
Do you do fat transfer to any other areas of the body? thank you!!
