Do you look in the mirror and find that your face appears more tired and older on the outside than you feel on the inside? There are many factors that contribute to the aging process, resulting in sagging skin and wrinkles. As we age, the facial soft tissues begin to relax, lose volume, and descend. This is related to a variety of factors including genetics, weight fluctuations, and lifestyle choices (smoking and sun exposure).
A Facelift addresses the lower 2/3 of the face beginning at the cheekbone and extending to the lower neck. This improves the midface soft tissue descent, nasolabial folds, marionette frown lines, jowl and revitalizes the appearance of the neck.
Dr. Scott utilizes the SMAS technique (superficial muscular aponeurotic system) in order to achieve a natural appearance with long-lasting results. The longevity of the facial rejuvenation is typically 7-10 years depending upon the individual and their lifestyle.
Autologous Fat Transfer is now commonly performed simultaneously with a Facelift in order to restore volume. Common areas include the malar area, nasolabial folds, marionette frown lines and lips. This procedure has gained popularity in recent years due to improved techniques and the permanence of the fat compared to injectables.
Additional procedures commonly performed with a Facelift include Browlift and Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty).
YOUR FACELIFT CONSULTATION
During your consultation, you will have the opportunity to address your concerns to Dr. Scott. At that time, he will discuss with you the best treatment plan to discuss the methods of Facial Rejuvenation that best suit your individual goals.
Surgery is performed in an accredited outpatient surgical center and takes approximately 4-6 hours unless additional procedures are added.
Some swelling and mild bruising is normal after a Facelift and usually subsides within 7 to 10 days.
Most patients experience very little pain following a Facelift procedure. You can further extend your long-lasting results with life-long sun protection, a medical grade skin care regimen and a healthy lifestyle.
