HOW TO DETERMINE THE APPROPRIATE FACELIFT PROCEDURE
Today more women and men are considering a facelift or mini facelift to help restore their face to a more youthful appearance. No longer do you have to worry about a facelift giving you a “plastic” or pulled look. Dr. Kundaria’s facelift patients tell us that their family and friends say that they look just like themselves, just more youthful, refreshed, and vibrant. Facelift surgery restores a more pleasing contour to your face and neck. A facelift can be done alone, or in conjunction with other procedures such as a forehead lift, eyelid surgery, or nose reshaping. Ask Dr. Kundaria and the specialists at Nuance Facial Plastics about the facelift procedure that is right for you.
ARE YOU A FACELIFT SURGERY CANDIDATE?
Facelifts have been successfully performed on patients as young as 40 years old and as old as 80. If your face and neck have started to sag, you may be a good candidate. Dr. Kundaria can assess your skin’s elasticity and help you determine the appropriate procedure for you.
Options for Your Facelift in Charlotte
The operation can be designed to correct problems in the neck, under the jaw and chin, and in the cheeks. The operation can be designed to correct problems in the neck, under the jaw and/or chin and in the cheeks. The mid-facelift, which addresses sagging in the cheek or middle third of the face, tends to be more common with younger patients, while patients with more facial aging often require a full facelift to address aging in the lower two-thirds of the face. Some patients may be best served by repositioning of the deeper facial tissues independently of the skin, and are candidates for a deep plane facelift. We tailor every facelift to the patient’s particular goals, and utilize a wide array of techniques to meet these goals.
Fatty tissue tends to decrease in volume and density, causing the skin to sag and loosely descend toward the ground (inferiorly) and midline (medially). There are also changes in the bony facial structure that, when combined in changes in muscular action and the effects of gravity, lead to more prominent skin folds. These changes are greatest under the chin and in the upper neck and jowls.
