Dr. Dean Kane Q & A  Q. I am 68 yrs old and need a facelift. I’ve received two differing opinions from doctor’s consults. One says Sculptra, the other says there are new methods of fat grafting that are very successful. I have very a thin, sun-wrinkled face and need a face and neck lift. My question is, should I do the fat grafting from belly to face or Sculptra? What if fat grafting takes unevenly. Please help….I have been saving for years so I need to make correct decision. A. ​If you have significant skin laxity where you can “pinch more than and inch” along your jawline in front of your earlobe, your best value will be a face and neck lift.It will last longer than injectables. ​ ​You can use Sculptra or Fat Grafting thereafter to fill or firm the volume deficiency and the residual skin laxity. Yes, fat grafting even with today’s newer techniques still survives unevenly and multiple session will be needed with both. ​ ​For very thin, sun-damaged skin, consider consulting with a ZO Obagi Skin Health Certified team to help you reverse and rejuvenate the sun injured skin. ​ ​I hope this helps! All the best!
