Is a Facelift Right for Me?
Modern aesthetic technology offers many non-surgical treatments for facial rejuvenation, and we offer the best of the treatments now available in the USA. In cases of more extreme facial sagging, wrinkling, or jowls, a surgical procedure will be needed to restore facial skin, tissue, and muscle structure. Every facelift is a custom surgery.
The condition of your skin, the extent of skin laxity, and the degree of sagging or drooping is all taken into account when planning surgery. If your facial skin cannot be rejuvenated through non-surgical means, and you are in good general health, you are a candidate for facelift surgery.
Why Should You Get a Facelift?
A facelift can fully rejuvenate your appearance. It is the advised procedure for you if you live with any of the following problems:
- You have sagging skin and tissue on face, under chin, and upper neck.
- You have developed deep lines, wrinkles and creases.
- When you look in the mirror, you feel you look old and tired.
- Your facial appearance makes you less confident, affecting all areas of your life, from social to business.
- You want to look as young as you feel.
What Does Facelift Surgery Entail?
There are several types of facelift procedures:
This surgical procedure lifts and restores the facial skin and tissue in cases of moderate to advanced signs of aging at mid-face and neck. The incisions are placed within the hairline and hidden. The deeper skin tissues can be repositioned to a more youthful area, excess sagging skin removed to create a smoother, more youthful look, with jowls and sagging skin removed to restore definition.
For a mild level of sagging, wrinkling, creases, and jowls, a mini-facelift is a less-invasive procedure with shorter incisions and a faster recovery time. The shorter incisions are placed along the hairline above each ear or around the ear in the natural creases, so they are hidden once healed. The sagging facial structure is repaired by lifting and tightening to resolve the appearance of jowls, restore jawline definition, and create a refreshed, rejuvenated look.
Deep Plane Facelift
This procedure addresses the underlying facial issues that have affected the appearance of the mid-face region. This modern surgical technique produces a remarkable result, as the result is extremely natural – never pulled or tight in appearance. This advanced surgical procedure addresses the underlying muscles structure, rather than just tightening the skin. The deep facial tissues are surgically released from the muscles and reattached for a subtle but significant rejuvenation. As there is less damage to the facial skin, there is less swelling and a shorter downtime after surgery.
Neck Liposuction: Removing Excess Fat in a Facelift
It may be necessary to remove excess fat lodged beneath your chin and on the neck to create the fresh, youthful look you envision. If you have a double chin or have fatty deposits drifting downward on your upper neck, a gentle, custom liposuction treatment may be employed to remove the fat as part of your procedure, or as a single procedure for patients with a high level of skin flexibility.
