As men and women age, the tissues that give the face its physical structure and support, begin to take a toll. Performing a face lift can dramatically help these structures acquire a more youthful appearance.
Face lifts can be performed in the entire face, in what is called a complete face lift. For patient’s that want a more conservative approach, we offer targeted face lifts. To understand this, visualize the face divided into three regions horizontally. The first area is the upper third, followed by the middle third, and finally the lower third of the face. These procedures are recommended for people that have mild to moderate skin sagging. What is convenient about this procedure is that the scars are well hidden within the patient’s hair.
We also offer the minimally invasive endoscopic face lift for those worried about excessive scarring.
