How is a facelift performed?
The purpose of a facelift in Manhattan NY is meant to correct loose skin, jowls, and folds on the neck and face. After the surgery, your face will start to look fresher, firmer and smoother. Most of the time, a facelift will focus on the lower facial areas like the cheeks, jowls, and jawline. However, a facelift may also focus on the forehead and midface. With specific techniques, deeper facial tissue can be tightened and repositioned for restoring a youthful contour. With other techniques, there is an addition or removal of fat and other soft tissue fillers when needed to achieve the desired results. Today, there are many durable, safe, and reliable techniques that will aid in getting the desired outcome. Still, just like with any other procedure it is important to select certified surgeon with years of experience in rhytidectomy in nyc.
The incision during your facelift depends on the area targeted and the level of changes that are required. When an incision is made, there are levels of undermining on the skin that will be done and deeper layer of the face will be lifted. Undermining is used to separate overlying skin of the neck and face from the tissues and muscles found deeper in your skin. This will loosen up neck and facial skin to help in redraping them when the procedure is finished making the skin look smoother.
The surgeon will raise the skin from the neck, cheeks, and temples while repositioning and lifting underlying connective tissues and removing extra skin and fat. This procedure is performed in conjunction with neck lift when the surgeon draws the neck muscle with the face muscle and then stitches them together at the midline; making a strong sling for the muscle to support an entire jaw and neck. Sometimes a liposuction of the jowls or the neck may be included. Also, facial implants can be added to improve the chin and cheek volume.
You are the right candidate for a facelift if you have:
Sagging skin on the jawline and midface
Deep creases that extend to the nose and corners of your mouth
Lines that extend from the corner of your mouth to the chin
Facial fat or volume that had been displaced or fallen
Lost muscle tone in the lower face
Sagging face which leads to jowls
