Facelift & Necklift

Goal

Reposition the sagging, fallen structures of the face, jowls, and neck to recreate a natural and more youthful appearance. This is a vertical vector, anti-gravity facelift and it provides dramatic and long lasting appearance results.

Procedure

After pain and relaxation medications are given (no general or I.V. anesthesia are required), tumescent anesthesia is provided to numb the lower face and neck. After neck liposuction and submentoplasty, the SMAS (Superficial Musculo Aponeurotic System) layers of tissue beneath the skin are lifted and securely stitched in a vertical (anti-gravity) position. The skin is re-draped and trimmed.  Two layers of skin stitches are placed for a beautiful and natural result.

Healing

Recovery is approximately 7-10 days. Patients are up and moving the night of the procedure. Bandage is worn for 3 days. Moderate swelling and bruising may occur. Stitches are removed at 7 and 10 days. The skin of the neck will feel tight for a few weeks.
