Patient Stories

Patient Story: Yvonne

Yvonne is 60 years old. She was concerned with her facial age spots and the deep wrinkles in her lip area. She had a lot of sun exposure over the course of many years and felt she was now wearing more “cover-up” products than make-up to camouflage her age spots. She wanted a refreshed, natural look that would take a few years off. 
 
Dr. Perkins performed Resurfacing on her face to reduce the photo-aging that had taken place on her skin. He included the neck and chest so that the entire area from her face downward looked like a natural, smooth canvas. Dr. Perkins also performed Dermabrasion around the lip area to remove the deep wrinkles Yvonne had acquired. 

Patient Story: Diana

Diana was self-conscious because she had developed "jowling" and sagging under her chin already at a relatively young age. Her face was also beginning to show signs of further aging with deepening smile grooves and cheek folds around her nose-lip area known as "smile lines". This was giving her a "harsher" look as well as a bit of a sad look around the mouth. Dr. Perkins performed a cheek-neck lift, known as a "lower facelift" including liposuction under the chin and neck-jowl areas. This gave her neck and jawline a more defined look and "sharpened" her neckline considerably, which gives her face a more youthful appearance; and she looks as though she lost weight.

Diana was a great candidate for a facelift. Even in her mid-forties, she had the hereditary condition of sagging jowls and skin, yet she still has some elasticity to her skin. Having rejuvenating facial plastic surgery in somewhat younger years to address the initial signs of aging enables patients to enjoy a refreshed, more youthful look now and for many years, rather than waiting until an arbitrary older chronological age. 

Patient Story: Nathalie

Nathalie had an overall tired look and appeared to be frowning even though she was not. She also had wrinkles around her eyes, on her cheeks and in the neck area. She had “jowling” under her chin – which often occurs as we age.

Dr. Perkins performed a facelift, upper and lower blepharoplasty and a forehead lift to give her a fresher more energetic, but natural look. He also added a chin implant to balance and bring overall harmony to the proportions of her face.

Patient Story: Christine

When Christine was younger, she was teased by other people about the shape of her nose. She was especially self conscious when she looked at candid photos of herself. Dr. Perkins was able to bring symmetry to Christine's face giving her a nose that fits her face and looks natural. Christine is very happy with her new look.

Dr. Perkins performed a rhinoplasty on Christine.

 

 

 

Patient Story: Michelle

Michelle

Michelle was very self-conscious about the size and shape of her nose since she was a little girl. She had always wanted Rhinoplasty but was concerned because she did not want to lose the look of her Latino heritage. Dr. Perkins utlilizes computerized imaging with his patients, so Michelle was able to see what her projected surgical outcome would look like before she had her surgery -- which put her at ease.
