Face & Neck Lift

Face Lift

Facial aging results in a loss of skin elasticity and firmness, sagging tissue and wrinkles. These signs of aging can impact how we feel about ourselves. If you wish to look as good as you feel a facelift may be the answer for you. A facelift (or rhytidecotmy) is a surgical procedure to improve the visible signs of aging in the face and neck. A facelift smoothes the loose skin on your face and neck, tightens underlying tissues, and removes excess fat. The end result is a smoother, firmer and fresher look. Mid-face sagging can create a deep crease below the lower eyelid (called a tear trough) and between the nose and mouth (nasolabial fold) that can make you appear tired and sad. You may consider a facelift if you have some of the following concerns:

  • Wrinkles, excess fatty tissues or loose skin in the neck
  • A deep line runs between the corners of your nose and mouth
  • Loss of well-defined jaw line
  • Wrinkles in the cheeks and sagging skin near the cheekbones

Face lift types:

  • Minimal invasive: also called as thread lifts; this is the latest type of face lift procedure which is offered to the patients who have less laxity and who do not want an extensive surgery. In this procedure US FDA certified threads are placed in your check area or wherever there is laxity of skin. Its an OPD procedure without any down time with instant results, but obviously the results are less pronounced then the surgical face lift
  • HIFU: this machine is used to treat fine wrinkles and laxity by using energy based devices. This can be combined with other non-surgical procedures like chemical peels or lasers.
  • Surgical face lift: in this procedure your face is tightened using an incision near the ear which is not visible in long term. This gives the best results of all types of face lift but it requires hospitalization and general anesthesia. It certainly has a long down time as compared to minimally invasive facelift but certainly gives the best results.

Neck Lift

The approach in the female for neck lift is tailored to highlight and enhance the feminine structures of the jaw, neck, and chin. The appearance of fresh and uplifted contours leads to a well-rested and relaxed appearance, and translates to the perception of a more youthful appearance.

You may consider a neck lift if you find these to be trouble areas:

  • Turkey gobbler neck
  • Excess fat (double chin)
  • Loose skin
  • Presence of vertical muscle bands

During your neck lift doctor will carefully discuss your concerns and your goals with you. A neck lift can be performed in conjunction with a face lift if there are mid face and lower face aging concerns.
