Facelift / Neck lift Surgery
A facelift-neck lift, also sometimes known as a rhytidectomy, helps improve the most visible signs of aging through removal and redistributing excess fatty deposits, tightening underlying muscles, and removing sagging skin. The standard facelift addresses the lower 2/3 of the face and the neck. Muscle tightening in the neck (the platysma) improves the effects of facelift surgery. Anything above the eyes is treated with a brow-lift.
There are three components to the aging face, all of which should be addressed during rejuvenation surgery: The first component is the underlying structures that support the face. The second component of aging is the skin; different types of skin will be treated differently during the rejuvenation process. Volume is the third component to restoration of the aging face; temporal areas hollow out, while jowls, often have more than a desired amount of fat. By performing liposcupture, liposuction, and fat grafting a more natural, pleasing lift can be accomplished.
