Faces age in many different ways and at different rates. Today, there are a myriad of facial rejuvenation paths available to you, both surgical and non-surgical. Sometimes a combination of procedures is necessary to achieve the results you desire. A pure facelift (beneath the eyes to the neck) is indicated if you are noticing sagging, hollowing, or sinking of your face.
Beautiful, natural looking results have replaced the tight, expressionless, “overhaul” looks of years past. Patients from mid forties well into their seventies can benefit from new facelift techniques.
You may consider facelift surgery if any of the following conditions apply:
- Excess sagging facial skin
- Loose skin around the jaw
How is a facelift performed?
It is a very detailed operation and specifically tailored to your face. The most successful facelifts involves more than what many visualize as pulling and tightening. Techniques in suspending, plumping, resurfacing and sculpting are artfully applied. It addresses layers beneath the skin. Achieving the best overall look sometimes dictates a combination of procedures to be performed.
Incisions are carefully made inside the hairline and around the curve of the ear. These incisions are precisely placed to allow the surgeon to visualize your underlying facial structure and fat deposits. Repositioning, redistributing and reshaping are the three key elements of returning you to a more rested, youthful appearance. The final step is to drape the skin over the newly sculpted foundation and reducing just the right amount of excess skin—a critical part of the surgery in avoiding the “tight” look. Incisions are closed using a combination of stitches, staples or skin adhesives.
