Refresh Your Face From The Affects Of Aging
A Facelift addresses the lower 2/3 of the face beginning at the cheekbone and extending to the lower neck. This reduces soft tissue descent in the midface, nasolabial folds, marionette frown lines, jowling, and revitalizes the appearance of the neck.
Dr. Scott utilizes the Sub SMAS technique (Superficial muscular aponeurotic system) to provide 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 to restore volume. Common areas for Fat Transfers 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) and Laser Therapy.
Considering a Facelift?
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? As we age, our soft facial tissues begin to relax, lose volume, and descend, resulting in sagging skin and wrinkles. This is related to a variety of factors, including genetics, weight fluctuations, and lifestyle choices like smoking and sun exposure.
Facelift Surgery and Recovery
Surgery is performed in a JCAH 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 sun protection, a medical grade skin care regimen and a healthy lifestyle.
