What is a Facelift?
As the skin ages, repeated facial expressions such as smiling and laughing can result in the development of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, nose and mouth. Although there are several skin rejuvenation treatments on the cosmetic market, facelift surgery, or rhytidectomy, tightens and smooths the skin for natural, long-lasting results.
Facelift surgery is typically performed to correct several signs of aging, including:
- Sagging in the mid-face
- Deep creases below the eyelids and along the nose extending to the corners of the mouth
- Areas of fat that have fallen or have disappeared, resulting in a loss of shape
- Loss of volume and shape in the lower face, resulting in jowls
- Loose skin and excess fat under the chin that create a “double chin” appearance
What is a Neck Lift?
In some cases, the visible signs of aging may primarily be in the neck area. In these instances, a neck lift rather than a full facelift may be a better solution. A neck lift, or lower rhytidectomy, can accomplish several cosmetic goals along chin and jawline, such as:
- Tightening loose neck skin
- Removing pockets of excess fat under the chin
- Muscle banding in the neck
Which Procedure is Right for Me?
During your consultation with Dr. Stephens, factors such as your overall health, medical history, cosmetic goals and expectations will be discussed in order to determine whether a full facelift or a neck lift would be most beneficial to you. Certain contraindicating medical conditions may apply.
The extent of your procedure depends on the type and technique of surgery that best fits your cosmetic needs and preferences. Doctor Stephens will tailor your procedure to your unique appearance and create a look that is always natural, never fake or exaggerated.
