A Facelift is a surgical procedure designed to smooth, tighten and firm the skin, providing a fresh, youthful appearance. Throughout one’s life, the sun, stress, gravity, and other factors cause the face to sag and fit loosely.
Surgery for a facelift involves the contraction, realignment and removal of excess facial and neck skin. A facelift is often performed in combination with other facial cosmetic procedures such as fat transfer, fillers, Botox, liposuction of double chin and blepharoplasty.
Reasons for Considering a Facelift:
Sagging skin in the face and neck
Sagging jaw line
Crease lines along the nose, mouth, chin and neck
The standard procedure for a facelift commonly involves making small incisions just inside the hairline following the contour in front of the ear and continuing under the earlobe to the backside of the ear and to the lower scalp. Tissue is separated, skin is stretched, tightened, and any excess skin is removed. Minuscule stitches are used to close the incisions and to reduce any chance of scarring.
