Do you want to turn back the clock? Do you wish to look like a younger version of yourself?
Jowls on the lower face are a result of the loss of facial tissue volume and lost elasticity. This also causes wrinkles and loose skin on the neck.
If these signs of facial aging make you feel self-conscious about yourself then maybe Facelift Surgery is the right answer for you. By lifting and tightening the deep facial tissues and removing the excess sagging skin we can help you do so!
Patients usually experience an increase in self-confidence and energy levels after facelift surgery.
Types of Facelifts
When jowling and skin sagging are of a mild degree, the patient is a good candidate for a mini-facelift.
A mini facelift is a less invasive technique that uses shorter and smaller incisions to tighten deep facial tissues. These incisions are located in the natural creases surrounding the ear along the hairline. It is through these incisions that the tightening is performed thereafter removing the jowls and enhancing the jawline.
Standard Facelift (Traditional Facelift)
When jowling and skin sagging are of a moderate to advanced degree, the patient is a good candidate for a standard Facelift.
Incisions are also hidden in the natural creases behind the hairline, infront of the ear and near the temples. Through these incisions the magic is done and elimination of jowling and sagging skin under the chin with restoration of a naturally youthful contour to the face and neck is done. The end result is a dramatic change in appearance and an amazing “youthful energetic look” addressing the lower two thirds of the face – the cheeks and jawline.
Recovering from a facelift
The recovery process is amazingly quick for most patients. Within Two weeks the patients typically return to normal daily activities (strenuous exercise will need to wait about 4 weeks) following a standard facelift. Shorter time periods are needed for a mini-face lift.
How long do the results last? Can I have a second facelift?
The facelift lasts in most cases seven to ten years. Time and gravity still exist and the clock of biological aging still continues. In time, as aging continues some individuals believe it’s time for a second face lift.
