DROOPING DOWN FACE

TREATMENT OPTIONS AND COMMON QUESTIONS TO DOCTOR

PDO thread lift?

 

 

  BEST FOR: excess of skin hanging, minimal fat

  COST: from $1200

  DOWNTIME: 2-5 days or none

Aging bone loss, gravity and lack of elasticity may cause skin and fat pads drooping down to nasolabial folds, marionette lines and down the jaw lines. If excess fat is also an issue, fat dissolving injections remove fat, and then skin is being strengthen by threads.  Under local anesthetic, the  procedure is usually well tolerated. Swelling and bruising possible.

French subcision – all lines are smoothed from inside the skin?

 

 

BEST FOR: wrinkles and folds in mimic areas (most common – around mouth)

COST: from $500

DOWNTIME:3 days – 1 week

Wrinkles can be separated with a special canula from tethering inside. Mimic wrinkles and folds are hard to treat with other procedures. The result is immediate, but much better in 2 months, when collagen builds in. Bruising and swelling are most common side effects. Make sure you massage it, as directed. This is 1 of the best procedures for face lift without surgery.

Anti-wrinkle injections?

 

 

  BEST FOR: overactive depressing muscles of the face and neck – by relaxing them, we lift the balance up

Muscles on face and neck can be pulling down (which we relax with injections) and lifting (which we enhance by compensatory mechanisms). Effects lasts from 3 to 8 months.

Fat dissolving injections?

 

 

  BEST FOR: if excess of fat (over 3 cm)

  COST: from $600

  DOWNTIME: 2-4 days

Fat dissolving injection is considered to be a lunch time procedure, although swelling is the most common side effect. Swelling is worse later the treatment day, then improve in a couple of days usually. More swelling post injection – better will be effect and skin tightening.
The medication used is similar to naturally occurring in the body  and has been in medicine for a long time.
Fat dissolving injections require few procedures – in clinical research it has been done from 4 to 6 injections to achieve significant results (Ref: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27340142 ), however, at VISTA Clinic Australia Melbourne we can see significant results after 1st injections, most commonly after 2 or 3.

Liposuction?

 

 

  BEST FOR: excess fat

  COST: from $2500

  DOWNTIME: 1-2 weeks

 Liposuction is a mechanical suction off the fat cells from double chin and jawline areas with contouring of lower face. Liposuction is a golden standard in treatment of excess fat in the local area, helping to sculpture desirable shape. Like any other surgical procedure, this is effective, but more recovery procedure.

Chin Augmentation?

 

 

  BEST FOR: deficient or weak chin

  COST: from $250

  DOWNTIME: none, lunchtime procedure, but bruising possible

 

Bone of the chin provides support for soft tissues of jawline and fat under chin. When chin’ bone is too small in proportion to the face, double chin can appear even in young and not overweight people. Dermal filler restoration of the chin bone will provide tension, strengthening the jawline and lifting up excess skin under chin. Result lasts approximately 1 year. In case of severe chin bone deficiency, surgery of chin implant can be considered for longer lasting results.
