Facelift An Overview
Aging of the face is inevitable. As the years go by, the skin begins to loosen on the face and neck. Crow’s Feet appear at the corners of the eyes. The jaw line softens into jowls. Heredity, personal habits, the pull of gravity and sun exposure contributes to the aging of the face.
We Offer Several Facelift Options
The most commonly requested facelift is a surgical facelift. These procedures are performed by Dr. Aaron Shapiro, a board certified facial plastic surgeon. We also offer:
Silhouette™ Facelift – Nonsurgical procedure using Silhouette™ Sutures
Combination Facelift – Surgical facelift with Silhouette™ Lift
Viora Reaction – Nonsurgical skin tightening procedure
About the Facelift Procedure
Facelift surgery is performed in an outpatient, private cosmetic surgery center under light general anesthesia.
Dr. Shapiro will make an incision around the ear and below the chin. The skin will be gently raised to reposition and tighten the underlying muscle and connective tissue. In some cases, liposuction may be used in combination with the facelift to remove excess fat and thin the skin to perform a natural contour and lift.
While we can’t stop the aging process completely, we can slow it down. A facelift will last 10 years or more. You can increase the longevity of the facelift and maintain the youthful effects by having a healthy skin routine that includes sunscreen and professional skin care products.
