Neck Lift

The neck lift, or lower platysmaplasty, focuses on the neck and jawline to create a more youthful appearance. This procedure removes excess fat and loose or sagging skin in the lower face as well as under the chin.

It is sometimes performed together with a brow lift or eyelid surgery. It may also be combined with a transfer of fat to the cheeks or to plump up lips that often become thinner with age.

Facelift

As we age, gravity takes its toll. The process of aging causes us to lose some of the fat in the hollow below the cheek bones. In addition, age relaxes both muscles and skin in the facial area. Our lifestyle, unprotected exposure to the sun, and stress can have an impact. Even our genetic makeup plays a part in how we age.

There are several common results. The fold lines running from the nose to the corners of the mouth deepen. Sagging jowls may form along the jawline. And the tissue around the eyes begins to droop, resulting in a sad and tired look.

Known as a rhytidectomy, the facelift can make notable improvements in our appearance. Tissues are lifted and tightened, just as the name implies, and excess skin is removed. This results in a more youthful look and people often say that, after a face lift, the patient looks “rested and refreshed.” And, while surgery cannot stop the natural process of aging, it can set the clock back.

The facelift may be performed in conjunction with eyelid surgery and the brow lift.

Eyelid Surgery

This surgical procedure removes fatty tissue on the upper or lower eyelids, or both. Known as blepharoplasty, it can also include the “bags” that form under the eye, all in one single operation. The result is a more youthful, “awake” look.

Bucal Fat

Everyone has a pad of buccal fat beneath the cheek bones. Its size will vary from person to person, and aging affects both size and placement. For those who feel their cheeks are too chubby, there is the option of buccal fat removal in which excess fat is removed surgically.

Brow Lift

Our eyebrows may move closer to the eyelashes as we age, and we usually develop lines across the forehead and frown lines between the brows. This is where a brow lift can help. The procedure is also known as a forehead lift and “lifts” brow while reducing frown lines and furrows.

It may done alone or combined with a eyelid surgery, skin resurfacing or a face lift.
