Face and Neck Lift

Facial rejuvenation is about maintaining your youthful look. It is not about changing who you are or making you look different. When you look in the mirror, you want to look as good as you feel. Age, stress, heredity can leave our faces looking more tired and older than we actually feel. A facelift can remove the signs of aging and rejuvenate our look. The wrinkles of the face are smoothened, the sagging skin along the jawline (jowls) is tightened, the fat that has displaced in our face and neck is lifted and the excess skin is removed and redraped softly and smoothly. In the neck, the muscles can be tightened and the skin redraped for a smooth, naturally younger look. The signs of aging no longer detract from the beauty of one's facial features. Your face looks brighter and younger.

The face and neck lift procedure

Facelifts are done as an outpatient in our surgicenter. The incisions are carfeully hidden in the hairline and behind the ears. Once mature, the incisions are minimally visible. The skin is redraped under gentle stretch, removing the wrinkled appearance of the skin and the excess skin is trimmed away and repositioned. The goal is to create a smooth soft contour to the face. The goal is not a windblown or pulled back look that is the telltale sign of a technically incorrect facelift. A well done facelift should look natural and leave you looking refreshed.
