Face & Neck
This very busy 51 year old professional woman was looking for a more symmetric and rejuvenated look. She asked for upper and lower eyelid surgery and also wanted a Weekend Lift at the same time. These pictures are taken just one week after her surgery and you can notice a small bruise which remains below her left eye which disappeared over the next few days. To best assess the results of the Weekend Lift, it is important to view her from the side. But to best assess the results of her eyelid surgery, it is best to view her straight ahead. Please check the photos of this patient in both places. As you can clearly see, her results at one week are amazing! She is one of the sweetest patients we have had at the Kass Center, and each year when she returns for a filler injection, it makes us smile to see how wonderful the surgery Dr. Kass did is still holding, now more than ten years later.
Hetter Chemical Peel with Facial Resurfacing, Fat Transfer to the Upper and Lower Lips, and Necklift with Platysmaplasty
This 56-year-old woman was unhappy with the lines on her cheek and above her upper lip, the thinness of her upper lip, her under-eye bags, droopy eyebrows, lines on her forehead and the bands in her neck. She underwent laser treatments to her upper lip and Thermage by another doctor and was disappointed that she saw no improvement with either treatment.
She was ecstatic with her results from Dr.Kass. Every single one of her concerns was addressed, improved, and corrected. What do you think about the results?
Weekend Lift, Neck Lift with Suture Platysmaplasty and a Blue Peel (with TCA)
This 53-year-old woman hated the sad face which greeted her in the mirror each morning. She was most unhappy with her jowls, the loss of her jaw line, the down turning of the corner of her mouth, the bands in her neck, and the appearance of her skin. She also wasn’t happy about her eyelids but, like many patients, did not want to do everything at the same time.
This patient was thrilled with her results. It took years off of her appearance. Don’t you agree? She is so happy she can’t wait to go ahead with eyelid surgery and is planning for it now.
This very sweet 54 year old Professor of Nursing (and a doctor’s wife) came to see Dr. Kass. She was particularly unhappy with eyelid scarring which developed after her dermatologist removed a benign skin lesion near her eye. After seeing examples of Dr. Kass’ work, she decided that she also wanted to fix her droopy eyelids and sagging face. She wanted to feel as young as she felt, and also wanted back the confidence she had when she first started teaching. She elected to have scar revision of her right upper and lower eyelids, bilateral upper and lower eyelid blepharoplasties, with a Weekend Lift. This patient has healed wonderfully and stated at her last visit that she only wished she had made this decision sooner.
A newly retired Postal Worker came to see me. She was very kind, soon to be 60 years old, complaining of sagging, tired eyes, and jowls. She also noted concerns about her skins texture and tone. The patient elected to have both upper and lower eyelid surgery with a weekend lift, which includes the face and neck, as well as a croton oil hetter peel. At her 3 months post op, the patient stated she was elated with the results of her procedures, and would only be coming to me for any further cosmetic needs.
This lovely patient is a 70 year old armature actress. After healing from her facial rejuvenation procedure which included the Weekend Lift and a peri-oral Hetter Peel, she was tickled pink when she recently auditioned for the role of an “older lady” and to her surprise was cast by the director as a “middle aged lady”. She played opposite a 20 year old who played their “son” in the production. Dr. Kass was delighted to hear about her role in the production and his role in helping our patient look and feel her best! She estimates that her procedure turned back the hands of time a couple decades or more!
This gentleman wanted his appearance to reflect how young and active he felt physically. He wanted a natural result that would leave his appearance enhanced, not different. After consulting with Dr. Kass about which procedures would be best for him and his active lifestyle, he proceeded with The Weekend Lift (but only after seeing how thrilled his wife was her results from Dr. Kass with the same procedure)! He is so excited with how natural and rejuvenated he looks!
Upper and Lower Eyelid Surgery, Face Lift, Neck lift (with liposuction and tightening of the neck muscles with suture suspension)
This is a 71-year-old man who is working as a business consultant. He believes that his “tired” appearance may be hurting him as he loses clients to more youthful-looking competitors. He does not mind looking his age and he is not trying to look like a movie star. He wants to look more vigorous and less tired.
He was so grateful that the first person he referred to Dr. Kass after his recovery was his wife!
This 65 year old woman, about to retire, wanted to look her very best as she began the new activities of her retirement. Initially, she presented for just upper eyelid surgery. But she was so delighted with her results that, after just one week, she decided that she also wanted lower eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), festoon treatment with localized Hetter Facial Resurfacing, and bilateral midface lifts. Here she is at just a couple of months after surgery. And there will be even greater improvement as she continues to heal!
She says she is constantly getting complimented about her eyes, and that now she faces her retirement activities with renewed vigor and self-confidence. In fact, she is even thinking about what she wants Dr. Kass to do next for her!
This 43-year-old woman was concerned about the drooping of her upper lids, loss of definition of her cheeks, and she “hated” the bags under her eyes. But even more than these, she hated the bags of her cheeks, called festoons, or cheek bags or malar mounds. For her, Dr. Kass performed his unique bilateral resurfacing of the festoons, mid face lifts, bilateral upper and lower eyelid lifts, bilateral eyelid ptosis repairs, and a full-face Hetter resurfacing chemical peel procedure.
She was amazed that the surgery successfully restored the youthful fullness to her cheeks, that the upper lids were symmetric and natural appearing, that the bags beneath her eyes were all gone, and that all of these problems could be addressed at the same time. Her husband volunteered that when he looked at her now, “it was almost like being married to a different (younger) woman.”
Facial Fat Transfer
It may be hard to believe but this delightful 50 year old woman was reluctant to go outside because she “hated” the way that she looked. She recently inherited money and there was nothing she wanted more than to rejuvenate her aging face. She was fully aware that her face looked aged because it had deflated and lost its youthful volume. She requested a Facial Fat Transfer procedure and was so happy to learn that this could be combined with other procedures such as a facelift and upper eyelid surgery. This was the gift she most wanted to give herself for her 50th birthday. We have never met a more eager and excited patient when it came to the big reveal at the first post-operative appointment. Even though she had a little swelling and a little bruising, she began to cry with tears of joy and excitement and said, “I knew I made the right decision by choosing Dr. Kass! This may only be day one after surgery, but I can already see my results are AMAZING!”
This 63-year-old woman was referred to Dr. Kass by her husband. She had previously had surgery on her upper eyelids by another surgeon and was requesting only surgery on her lower eyelids.
Needless to say, she was ecstatic with her results!
This patient recently divorced, beautiful, 44 year old lady came to Dr. Kass because she was horrified about how her neck looked. She claimed that her neck looked like a gobbler neck on a turkey! She could not see how beautiful her face was because all she saw was her neck. She quickly booked a neck lift procedure and has never looked back. She had minimal bruising and swelling, and healed spectacularly. Many times she told Dr. Kass that having surgery with him was the best decision she ever made!
A very jovial 55 year old woman came to see Dr. Kass with concerns of her jowls and neck. She felt that it aged her greatly, and didn’t portray her beaming personality. Within minutes of meeting Dr. Kass she booked her procedure. At her most recent post op, she was elated that everyone commented how refreshed she looked, and that she personally felt like her lift had taken 10 years off of her!
