MINI & FULL FACELIFT
Stress, gravity, sun damage, and natural changes of the skin eventually take their toll on your most visual aspect – your face. As you age, certain parts of your face tend to droop, sag, and develop wrinkles. The loss of youthfulness is most pronounced on the neck, the jaw line, and sides of the face.
Facelift / Rhytidectomy
A facelift provides an opportunity to rejuvenate the lower part of the face and restore its smooth and younger appearance. Technically known as a rhytidectomy, a facelift removes excess fat, tightens underlying muscles, and re-drapes the skin of your face and neck to improve:
- Deep lines, or folds, running from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth
- Jowls, or loss of a well-defined jaw line associated with youthfulness
- Deep wrinkles in the cheeks and sagging of the "highlight" areas of the cheekbones
- Loose skin, wrinkles, and vertical "cords," or excess fatty tissue in the neck
Your facelift must be designed to fit your unique bone structure, skin texture, and muscle tone. Many MAXiM-affiliated surgeons also offer a mini facelift or a brow lift for those looking for a touch up that is less invasive and more affordable than a full facelift.
Stem Cell Facelift
Some MAXiM-affiliated surgeons also offer a stem cell facelift that combines the latest in stem cell technologies and facial rejuvenation. Others also offer Ultherapy®, which is a skin-tightening technology that can be combined with a mini facelift.
For some patients, a CO2 laser that performs laser resurfacing is a less invasive way to attain facial rejuvenation, particularly when combined with other minimally invasive and non-invasive techniques such as Ultherapy®, injectables, fillers, etc.
State-of-the-art facelift techniques provide dramatic yet natural results and are customized to your needs. MAXiM-affiliated surgeons throughout the U.S. and abroad perform mini and full facelifts regularly and will provide all pre- and post-op instructions prior to your procedure.
