Facelift Q & A
What happens during facelifts?
A facelift, which is also called a rhytidectomy, is a type of cosmetic surgery procedure performed to give a more youthful facial appearance. Your provider may use various surgical techniques and routines.
Facelifts involve tightening the tissues and muscles and elevating the skin. Fat in the face and neck can be sculpted, moved, or removed, and facial skin can be re-draped over the newly repositioned contours of the face. Then, excess skin is removed, and the wound is taped or stitched closed.
What facial treatments are available in addition to facelifts?
The Center for Plastic Surgery provides a range of personalized and effective facial restoration treatments:
With a surgical facelift, Dr. Bouzaglou smooths out fine lines and wrinkles, lifts sagging skin, and restores a more youthful look. You can choose from many types of surgical facelifts.
A neck lift is a surgical procedure that involves removing skin and excess fat around your jawline, resulting in a more youthful-looking and defined neck. Dr. Bouzaglou may perform a neck lift along with a facelift procedure.
A forehead lift, sometimes called a brow lift, is a cosmetic procedure to treat creases in the forehead skin, sagging eyebrows, and hooded upper eyelids. With a forehead lift, Dr. Bouzaglou maneuvers tissues and extracts segments of muscles and skin that can cause deep frown lines or wrinkles.
How do you decide if you need a facelift?
You may choose a facelift or neck lift to reduce signs of aging in the lower part of your face and neck. You may be interested in a blepharoplasty to diminish fine lines and wrinkles around your eyelids or to address tired-looking, puffy eyelids caused by excess fatty deposits. You might choose a chemical peel to lessen facial scarring, such as acne scars.
Facial restoration treatments can target problems like sagging skin, loss of elasticity, and fine lines and wrinkles.
Some facial restoration treatments also offer functional benefits. For instance, a blepharoplasty can treat overhanging eyelids impairing your vision.
The best way to decide if you need a facelift is to come into The Center for Plastic Surgery for a consultation. You can ask questions, and your provider can go more in-depth with you.
