Your facial appearance is the first impression you give when presenting yourself to the world. As people grow older, their skin loses its laxity, resulting in deep wrinkles, fine lines, and loose, sagging skin. Because of the natural aging process, some undesirable facial changes such as excess skin and saggy facial features cannot be avoided.
Our team at Cosmetica Plastic Surgery & Anti-Aging offers patients Face and Neck Lift procedures to remove excess skin, providing both a natural and refreshed result that cannot be achieved with creams and facial products alone. The Face and Neck Lift is a procedure that rejuvenates the skin by smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines, while tightening loose, sagging skin that adds to jowls or loss of definition of the jawline.
This surgery can range from being small, minimally invasive procedures, to a more extensive surgical procedure. At Cosmetica Plastic Surgery & Anti-Aging, we offer different options to address your individual concerns.
Traditional Face/Neck Lift with Platysmaplasty:
This Face Lift addresses the mid and lower areas of the face and the neck. Incisions will be made in the hairline, at the temples, and continuing down the front of the ears, which will then be hidden behind the ears. A small incision is also made under the chin.
Small incisions will be made in the hairline just above the ear, in the natural creases inside the tragus of the ear, and then continuing around the ears.
Small incisions will be made in front of the earlobes and continuing behind the ears. A small incision will be made under the chin as well.
This procedure benefits many people of varying ages and skin types. The best candidates for this procedure are of good health with excess sagging skin around the face and neck as well as severe wrinkles or fine lines. To know if this procedure is the best option for you, our team at Cosmetica Plastic Surgery & Anti-Aging will examine your skin thoroughly as well as your medical history. It is important to convey your goals and expectations as well to gain the best results from this procedure.
The removal of excess skin and the tightening of the supporting structures of the lower face & neck will give you a more youthful, refreshed look, often times taking 10 years off your appearance with this very popular outpatient procedure!
The cost depends on how extensive your procedure will be. Some patients will be a candidate for a mini-lift while others will need more extensive surgery.
