Whether you have deep creases or simply need a light touchup, facelift and neck lift surgery can rejuvenate your facial features, making you look bright and youthful for your age. There are five basic components of an aging face:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Skin pigment changes
- Loss of volume
- Loss of skin elasticity
While small wrinkles and age spots can be improved with BOTOX® injections or laser skin resurfacing, the effects of gravity and loss of elasticity can only be improved with a traditional facelift or neck lift.
At the start of your facelift surgery, New York City plastic surgeon Dr. Scott E. Newmanwill make an incision near the temple that extends around the ear lobe into the hairline. He will then tighten the facial muscles and sagging tissue, remove excess skin, and reposition the remaining skin to create a more youthful look. A facelift can improve your appearance in many ways, including:
- Sagging in the midface
- Creases below the lower eyelids
- Creases along the nose extending to the corner of the mouth
- Fallen or displaced fat
Depending on the needs of the individual, neck lift plastic surgery can be performed in a variety of ways including:
- Liposuction– to remove fat
- Cervicoplasty – to remove excess skin
- Platysmaplasty – to remove or tighten neck muscles
