How is a facelift done these days?
- Posted on: Oct 8 2012
A facelift is real plastic surgery. The patient receives twilight or general anesthetic as determined by his or her plastic surgeon. Each patient has an individual treatment plan as to 1) the forehead (brow) 2) the eyelids 3) the mid-face and 4) the lower face or neck.
We use endoscopic technique in the brow and face to reduce postoperative swelling, shorten incisions in the hairline and around the ears. Many different names are given to the facelift, i.e. deep plane, multiplanar, vertical mid-face lift, S lift and endo-facelift. All techniques may involve an endoscope, and all remove skin and tighten the underlying fascia, repositioning the fat and removing the square jowls. Today’s facelift is a natural look, and not the swept over pulled look.
