De-aging through facelift made easy

Berlet Plastic Surgery NJ brings you Facelift also known as Rhytidectomy (ie removal of wrinkles). Facelifts are procedures undertaken to neutralize signs of aging such as slackening of jaw lines and fat deposits or loose folds on the neck that may be caused due to prolonged sun exposures and stress of daily life. These signs of aging are countered by tightening muscles, removing fat, and trimming excess skin which will give your face a fresher, youthful look.

Facelifts can effectively correct problems like:  

Jowls caused by lack of muscle tone Sagging areas of fat

  

Loose skin and fat below the chin area and jaw Deep creases below the eyes Midface sagging

How are Facelifts performed? Facelifts are usually outpatient procedures and can be practiced in an office-based facility, surgery center or hospital. Patients may have a choice of IV sedation or general anesthesia. The process takes about two hours. The way a facelift is carried out varies based on the surgeon, a person's facial structure, as well as the degree of modification desired. The 3 most common incision procedures are: 

Traditional facelift: The "full" facelift for reviving the face area, jowls and neck, including fat toning, raising and repositioning of muscle and deeper tissues, and skin trimming and redraping. The incision begins at the temples and moves right down to the front of the ear, around the earlobe, and behind the ear to the lower scalp at the hairline. Sometimes, another incision is made under the chin. Limited-incision facelift: For limited rejuvenation around the eyes and mouth, including nasolabial folds along with other deep creases. Short incisions are made at the temples and round the ear, and possibly in the lower eyelids and/or under the upper lip as well. Neck lift: A neck lift concentrates on jowls, loose skin on the neck, and fat underneath the chin. The incision is done around the ear lobe and behind the ear to the lower scalp.

In all three procedures, incisions are closed with stitches or tissue glue. Scarring is hidden in the hairline and natural contours of the face. Dr. Anthony C.
