Facelift surgery, or rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic surgery procedure used to restore a more youthful facial appearance. Facelift surgery can reduce the appearance of: wrinkles on the face, sagging skin in the cheek and jaw area, and excess fat on the neck among other things. To perform the surgery, a facial plastic surgeon will make incisions in necessary areas on the face; lift and tighten underlying muscles; then remove, redistribute, and/or sculpt the fat in your face to create a more aesthetically pleasing facial structure. A facelift surgery will not stop lip the aging process completely but it can slow it down.
Mini facelifts can be done in our operating room under local anesthetic with oral sedation. To determine if you are a candidate for a mini facelift or traditional facelift will depend on your individual factors such as skin laxity, age, and sun damage. Call our office to come in for a free consult with Dr. Laughlin to discuss which type of procedure fits your needs!
