A facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure done to address signs of aging in the face and neck. As we age, facial fat can fall or disappear, lines and folds can deepen, skin can relax and being to sag, and jowls can form. The skin and muscles of the neck also relax and cause bands in the neck. When excess fatty tissue is present, the neck can seem full and patients often express concern over a less defined jaw line and a loose neck. A facelift can correct these issues for a more youthful facial appearance.
If you are experiencing sagging skin on your midface or jaw, have deep creases or lines, or have lost facial volume, you may be able to benefit from a facelift.
Through the incisions hidden in natural skin creases and in the hairline, Dr Mirmanesh sculpts or redistributes fat, modifies the muscles and repositions the deeper layers of the face. Jowling, excess skin and fat under the chin and on the neck are corrected. Dr. Mirmanesh re-drapes the skin smoothly over the improved facial contours and removes excess skin. If needed, he can make an additional incision under the chin to target the neck.
Facelift surgery results are long-lasting. A face lift turns back the clock about ten years depending on the degree of rejuvenation necessary.
Facelift can be combined with another surgical or non-surgical procedure, such as fat transfer, the placement of facial implants, laser resurfacing or filler injections, to enhance the aesthetic outcomes.
A consultation with Dr. Mirmanesh can help to determine if this procedure is right for you.
