Facial aging results in increased laxity of the facial skin and descent of the tissues from the mid-face causing sagging of the lower face, jowls and “turkey neck” deformity. A facelift lifts and tightens the facial skin, accentuates the jawline and tightens the neckline eliminating the bottom-heavy appearance of advanced facial age.
A facelift involves repositioning the skin of the lower face and neck into a more youthful position. Surgery is performed in the surgical suite at Lone Tree Facial Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Center under “twilight” anesthesia. Surgery requires about two hours but can be longer when combined with other procedures. Incisions are hidden in the “sideburn” area, within the ear canal and along the back of the ear. Both surgical clips and delicate, dissolving sutures are used to close the incisions. A dressing will be placed at the time of surgery to minimize swelling and support your face and neck tissue.
If you have additional questions, we are always available at Lone Tree Facial Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Center.
