Facial Plastic Surgery

A face lift is performed in order to restore a person’s appearance to give a natural and rested look to your face. We use a multi-layer approach to reshape the muscles, skin and connective tissue. Our rejuvenating technique allows the muscles to heal better and more rapidly.

A face lift, also known as rhytidectomy, is the removal of facial wrinkles that result from aging, gravity, exposure to the sun, and the daily stresses of life. This procedure can help make you look younger and fresher, thereby enhancing your self- confidence. It is commonly performed after the age of 40, when skin starts to sag and deep creases may start to appear on cheeks and between the nose and mouth. At this time, you might also notice some folds and fat deposits around the neck, or a double chin forming.

Facelift Procedure

A facelift is generally a fairly lengthy surgical procedure normally performed with a combination of local anesthesia and sedation that takes up to 2 to 5 hours. It typically begins at the temples right above the hairline, following a natural line in front of the ear, and continuing behind the earlobe to the lower scalp. If the neck requires some correction, a small incision may also be made under the chin. To improve the contour, fat may be trimmed from around the neck and chin.

Next is the tightening of the underlying muscle and membrane, and then the skin is pulled up and excess skin removed. After closing the incision, cotton dressing is used to bandage the face and head. This helps to prevent swelling and also to provide good support for 2 to 3 days. Bruising and swelling normally decrease to “socially acceptable levels” within 10 to 20 days. But remember, we all heal differently. Any significant discomfort can be reduced with some pain medication. You can expect some numbness, which normally disappears within a few weeks or months.

Recovery and Final Result

Although a face lift cannot stop the clock of aging, most patients feel that their faces look up to 10 years younger. We use only the most advanced, cutting-edge techniques and technology. These advanced techniques ensure the highest possible quality for all our clients
