This section of the forum is dedicated to discussions on various surgical techniques for facial rejuvenation, including fat transfer/fat grafting, browlift, blepharoplasty (cosmetic eyelid surgery), facelift, etc. Also, this category includes questions on hand rejuvenation via fat grafting. (Of note, Dr. Lam does not perform body rejuvenation except for hand fat grafting)
I am 59 and considering having ultherapy on my lower face and neck instead of a neck lift because I have moderate jowls and turkey neck. Eventually I would like to have facial fat grafting because of fat loss due to being thin and aging. Do you think having ultherapy now would interfere or pose problems in future fat grafting procedures? Are you seeing any downsides to ultherapy treatments in these lower facial areas?
