The Facelift Procedure
Depending on the amount of change that you would like to see, you can choose from a traditional facelift or a limited incision facelift.
A traditional facelift incision begins in the hairline near the temples, continues around the ear, and ends in the lower scalp. Fat is sculpted and redistributed from the face, neck, and jowls, and underlying tissue is repositioned. Skin is redraped over the new contours and excess skin is trimmed away, revealing a more youthful facial appearance.
A limited incision facelift uses shorter incisions at the temples that continue around the ear. This procedure is reserved for individuals with less sagging skin, as the results are less dramatic than a traditional facelift.
