Face/Neck LiftFace/Neck Lift

If you are bothered by the signs of aging in and around your face, a face/neck lift may be right for you.

Technically known as rhytidectomy, a face/neck lift is a surgical procedure to improve visible signs of aging, such as:

  • Sagging in the midface
  • Deep creases below the lower eyelids
  • Deep creases between the nose and mouth
  • Fat that has fallen or is displaced
  • Loss of muscle tone in the lower face that may create jowls
  • Loose skin and excess fatty deposits under the chin and jaw

A face/neck lift is designed to correct all of these aging features, restoring a more youthful, rested appearance with uplifted contours and improved tone in facial skin and underlying muscle.

Procedure

Typical incisions begin within the hairline, above the temple and continue along or just inside the ear, ending behind the ear. This allows access to tighten underlying tissue, remove excess fat and reduce sagging skin.

A second incision under the chin is sometimes necessary. If skin tone is good and only mid-face aging or excess fat in the neck will be corrected, abbreviated techniques with shorter incisions may be used. Liposuction techniques may assist with removal of fat deposits.

Recovery

When your procedure is completed, a bandage could gently be placed around your face to minimize swelling and bruising. It may take several months for swelling to fully dissipate and up to 6 months for incision lines to mature.

Results

Long-lasting. However, the effect of aging and gravity will continue to take their toll.

Maintenance

Life-long sun protection will help to maintain your rejuvenated appearance by minimizing photo-aging or sun damage. In addition, a healthy lifestyle will also help extend the results of your rejuvenated, more youthful appearance.
