Facelift Procedure

A facelift is a surgical procedure to improve visible signs of aging in the face and neck.

facelift2If you are bothered by the following signs of aging in your face, facelift surgery may be right for you.

  • Deep creases along the nose extending to the corner of the mouth
  • Sagging in the mid-face that creates jowls
  • Deep creases below the lower eyelids
  • Fat that has fallen or has atrophied
  • Loose skin and excess fatty deposits under the chin and jawline
  • Sagging neck muscles

A facelift usually involves an incision in front of the ear. When properly done, the scar is partially hidden inside the ear. The scar also can go up into the hair, but more commonly is placed right in the front of the hairline of the temple area to avoid changing the hairline level when the excess skin is excised. Many facelifts also include a short incision in neck just under the chin in order to work on tightening the muscles in the neck.

Short Scar facelifts end at the bottom of the ear, but a standard facelift incision goes all the way around the ear into the skin and hairline behind the ear. The decision between these two options depends on the amount of skin and muscle laxity of each patient.

Other facial procedures sometimes performed in conjunction with a facelift include liposuction of the neck and Upper and Lower Blepharoplasty Surgery. If any of these procedures interest you, please call today for an appointment for a consultation.
