A face lift is a surgical procedure that is known to produce dramatic effects. It reverses signs of aging by smoothing and tightening skin on the face and underlying muscles. If you are interested in a face lift, an experienced surgeon at our Newark, Delaware practice will discuss any expectations and concerns you may have about the procedure during your initial consultation. Your surgeon will also educate you on various treatment options and help you formulate reasonable expectations for surgery. Together, you and your surgeon will devise the right treatment plan for you.
Face Lift Procedure
During the face lift procedure, incisions are made in areas beside the hairline and ears so that scars are barely visible. Next, excess fat and skin are removed from the face to tighten and improve the patient's facial contours and reduce sagging and bag lines. Then the skin is repositioned and closed up before being wrapped in bandages. Healing takes several weeks.
Face Lift Results
Patients look younger and more refreshed after face lift surgery. Your surgeon may suggest other procedures in combination with a face lift in order to attain your desired cosmetic goals. A neck lift is often performed with face lift surgery; eyelid surgery, rhinoplasty, or a variety of non-surgical procedures can be performed in combination as well.
