Post-Weight Loss Facial Enhancement
When you think about weight loss, you tend to focus on the changes that will take place in your body. But many massive weight loss patients are surprised to see how their faces change as the pounds come off. According to Dr. Cash "Many of my patients tell me that, when they were heavier, people often commented on 'what a pretty face' they had. But upon losing a great deal of weight, their once full, smooth facial contours begin to sag, often resulting in jowls or a turkey neck."
Facial plastic surgery in Houston with Dr. Cash can correct the sagging, lax face and neck skin that is left after major weight loss. As a board-certified plastic surgeon, she specializes in procedures to help those who have lost a significant amount of weight to look as good as they feel.

Post-Weight Loss Facial Procedures with Dr. Cash
The face and neck may look somewhat "deflated" after significant weight loss. The full cheeks and firm skin may now appear drawn and wrinkles may be more apparent. "Some of my patients feel that the weight loss has made them look older and they are interested in a face and/or neck lift," says Dr. Cash. "Other patients tell me that they wanted an eyelid lift or other procedure even before weight loss, and consider it the 'finishing touch' on their transformation."
Face and neck lift surgery is an excellent option for women or men who have lost a significant amount of weight, and are left with sagging jowls and wrinkled, hanging neck skin. This procedure restores fullness to the cheeks and lifts and removes excess skin from the lower face and neck. Both skin and muscles are tightened, and liposuction may be used to remove excess fatty tissue. The result is a more contoured, youthful looking lower face with smoother, firmer skin.
For concerns in the upper face, Dr. Cash offers eyelid surgery and brow lift to correct wrinkling and sagging in these areas. Results appear very natural, leaving you looking refreshed and alert, but not "worked on."
