Why This Woman Got a Facelift—And Couldn't Be Happier

Original Article by Elise Minton

Bothered by loose, saggy skin and moderate wrinkles on her face, this woman explains why she opted to have a facelift and get rid of what she didn’t like once and for all.

“I had a mini-facelift with fat transfer as well as a necklift, lip enhancement, injections of Restylane and Juvederm, microdermabrasion and Fraxel (done by Houston plastic surgeon Henry Mentz, MD) and am so glad I did. I started to feel like I looked aged, and I knew I had to do something about it.

During my consultation with my doctor, we discussed options for surgery as well as post-surgery procedures. We decided that a facelift would be the best procedure to address my concerns.

The Best Lip Enhancement Treatment for Every Age

Original Article by Tatiana Bido

There is an art to lip enhancement. Who you select to do your injections can mean the difference between getting a fuller, natural-looking pout or the dreaded over-filled “duck look.” The key to a natural, beautiful lip enhancement is in the injector’s approach. Patients at every age have different goals and motivations. For patients in their 20s, it can be the desire for fuller lips and better facial balance. For an older patient, an enhancement can address volume loss, a blurry lip line and wrinkles around the mouth. We reached out to New York dermatologist Marina Peredo, MD, to find out which issues patients are facing in each decade and how she approaches lip enhancement at every age.

For Patients in Their 20s:
According to Dr. Peredo, patients in their 20s most often have issues of genetic lip imperfections like asymmetry, thin lips, a gummy smile or their expression might appear sad or angry. “It’s really about enhancement,” says Dr. Peredo. “Patients this age tend to love the look of fuller lips. My job is to make sure they look proportionate to the face. I look at the whole person sitting in front of me to bring balance to the entire face. Sometimes the most important decision I make is what NOT to do. I always seek a natural look that will be barely noticeable to all but the patient.”
