What Parts of Your Face Can a Facelift Correct?

Posted on December 17, 2021 under Plastic Surgery

As we age, our skin slowly loses collagen and elastin stores, which are vital for youthful, healthy skin. This can lead to unwanted lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity that can make us look much older than we feel. Dr. Basile can help you turn back the hands of time with a facelift procedure, which is an effective treatment option for those looking for a permanent improvement to their moderate to severe signs of facial aging.

Areas of Correction

A facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic procedure performed to improve noticeable signs of facial aging. Generally, the facelift procedure can improve lax skin under the chin (also called turkey neck), sagging skin in the lower part of the face that results in jowls, lost volume in the mid-face area, and lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth.

Types of Facelift Procedures

In order to correct sagging facial and neck skin, your facelift procedure can be personalized to your individual needs. At our office, we provide the following facelift procedures to help make your anti-aging goals a reality:

  • Mini Facelift: For individuals who are bothered by their jowls and lax skin on their neck, a mini facelift may be a great option. A small incision is created in front of the ear in order to tighten the neck and lower face.
  • Full Facelift: A full facelift is meant to target the face and neck area for full facial rejuvenation. An incision will be created behind your ear and into your hairline for amazing and long-lasting results.
  • Neck Lift: A neck lift is done to focus mainly on sagging skin in the neck area. An incision for a neck lift is similar to a facelift, though the face is not the main point of focus for this procedure.

Regardless of the procedure that is right for you, Dr. Basile will work to provide inconspicuous incisions for natural-looking results.

Facelift Results

Your recovery time may differ depending on which form of facelift surgery was performed. However, most people can expect 4-10 days of downtime for the best results. Your incisions will continue to fade with time until they are practically invisible. Our team will provide you with specific instructions regarding recovery to ensure that your results are top-notch!
