We perform facelifts (meloplasty or rhytidectomy) to reposition and remove loose tissue from your cheeks and upper neck and tighten the tissues underlying them. We sometimes use liposuction to improve the contour around your neckline.
Facelifts vary in their extent - they can range from a full facelift to a "short scar" facelift (for your mid face). Your surgeon will fully discuss the different options with you at your consultation. We often combine a facelift with procedures to rejuvenate other parts of your face, such as your forehead and eyelids.
Surgery will not get quite as much tightening on your face as you can, say, using your fingers when you look in a mirror. However, a facelift can make a significant improvement. Your face retains its normal expression.
