What is the best facelift procedure?
A facelift procedure can improve many different aging concerns, from jowls to sunken cheeks, and wrinkles to sagging skin. Whatever your concern, there is a facelift procedure that is right for you.
In the last ten or more years, there have been breakthroughs in the aesthetic field, advancing cosmetic techniques with more cutting-edge techniques and technology. Today, a range of facelift procedures are available to address your individual needs. Depending on your specific concerns and aesthetic goals, the best facelift procedure could be any of the following types of facelifts:
This facelift is designed for individuals experiencing moderate to significant facial aging. Incisions are made at the hairline around the ears. The underlying facial and neck muscles are tightened. Fat tissues are repositioned to restore lost volume and sculpt and refine the features.
This procedure is ideal for patients who would like to sculpt and define the jawline to eliminate jowls and sagging skin in the mid-face area.
A mini facelift is a less invasive surgical technique that uses smaller incisions made near the hairline. The skin is tightened, and excess tissue is removed to contour the jawline and neck.
This procedure is ideal for patients who are experiencing earlier signs of aging rather than more severe sagging and creasing.
A mid-facelift effectively resolves volume loss in the cheeks, the mid-face. Small incisions are made at the temples near the hairline and inside the mouth. The soft tissues are repositioned to restore fullness to the cheeks, lift the cheekbones and reduce sagging.
The mid-facelift procedure is ideal for patients who are experiencing volume loss, heaviness or sagging below the cheeks, and hollows under the eyes.
Deep Plane Facelift
A deep plane facelift is a more advanced technique that lifts the SMAS (the layer of muscle and tissue under the skin) and the skin and fat together. During this procedure, the ligaments that anchor the facial muscles downward are released to achieve a more youthful, lifted effect.
This type of facelift is ideal for individuals who would like to achieve a dramatic but natural-looking rejuvenation, addressing several areas of the face.
The SMAS Facelift lifts and tightens the SMAS tissue layer (the connective layer of muscle and tissue under the skin), then lifts the skin separately. Incisions are placed along your temple and above the hairline.
This type of facelift is ideal for individuals with wrinkles, sagging cheeks, jowls, and other signs of aging.
