What can fix my face? Slightly loose tissue/skin; upper lip turned inward from droopy cheeks and looks short. Hollow lower face?

Plastic Surgeon Dr. Dean Kane of Baltimore Answers Question Regarding Lift Options

Q. So I fell 30ft from a tree and fractured my skull and lost vision to my left eye lost my hearing in both ears TBI and now 19 months later my left side of my face is still paralyzed and I’ve had an upper eyelift and weights inserted in my eyelid but I want to do a facelift to look somewhat normal again. Is there something I can do?

A. Thanks for your question. Unfortunately, without photos and / or a in-person consultation making recommendations is difficult. If and when you should seek a second opinion from a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, please bring in your pre-op photos as well.

Sub-periosteal lifts are performed at the deepest layer of tissue, just over the bone. They generally cause more swelling for a longer period of time and provide minimal skin lift. They are usually combined with a skin lift or skin tightening procedure.

Options to consider once the swelling has subsided include:

  • Obagi ZO Skin Health, Chemical Peels and Lasers
  • ThermiTIGHT
  • Silhouette InstaLift

I hope this is a helpful step. I wish you the best!
