Plastic Surgeon Dr. Dean Kane of Baltimore Answers Question Regarding Quick Lift, Thread Lift and Other Options for Facial Asymmetry

Q. I need a subtle Quick Lift on only one side of my face. I’m a 46-year-old man who looks much younger in person? FYI: I understand that perfect symmetry between my Left and Right side isn’t possible, BUT my pictures clearly show that the effect of pulling and removing that “excess skin” on my Left-lower side__ even though its Subtle. would make a very noticeable GOOD Difference!! I can provide pictures by Email to any Professional willing to analyze them? (I tried loading them here, but it isn’t allowing me to for some reason) I will appreciate your responses, thank You!

A. No human is perfectly symmetrical but even subtle changes can provide better balance, harmony and satisfaction of our features. Without photos, there is no chance to provide a directed answer.

My recommendations are:

  • Consult with a talented Board Certified Plastic Surgeon with experience in the minimally invasive options of facial enhancements. Consider:
  • Silhouette InstaLift suspension sutures for non-surgical lifting and collagen tightening
  • Sculptra, a series of injections to develop firmness, natural fullness and wrinkle reduction using a bio-active collagen stimulating filler
  • Fillers and fat grafting
  • Retinoids and chemical peels maybe helpful; use Zein Obagi’s, ZO Skin Health
  • ThermiTIGHT for subdermal skin tightening.
  • “Quick Lift” a marketed name for a surgical, short-scar, 2 layer facelift is another possibility.
