Facelift

A facelift or rhytidectomy is an operation to tighten the sagging skin of the lower face and neck. A more descriptive term would be jowl-neck lift. The nasolabial folds are not affected. Liposuction is usually done of the neck on the same day as the facelift. Local anesthesia is used with IV sedation and monitoring.

The incisions are made around the ears, as inconspicuously as possible, with the excess skin removed and the SMAS (Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System) is “cinched up” with strong absorbable sutures beneath the skin which is what gives longevity to the lift. Skin sutures are removed in 6 days and make-up can be applied that day. Swelling generally resides in 1-2 weeks.

Upper Blepharoplasty

The removal of excess skin and medial fat bulges is termed a blepharoplasty. Elevation of the eyebrows is called a browlift. Upper lid blepharoplasty is relatively a straightforward procedure where the incision is placed in the eyelid crease so it is inconspicuous after healing. The incision is carried slightly beyond the crease laterally to correct “hooding” of the lid skin. The surgery can be completed under local anesthesia with IV sedation (or not) and monitoring. Sutures are removed in 5 days and make-up can be applied resuming normal activities.

Thermitight skin tightening uses radio frequency generated heat to tighten the skin by stimulating the collagen in the deeper part of your skin and reduce fat beneath the skin of the neck, abdomen, thighs and upper arms. Small heated probes are placed under the skin to heat the collagen from beneath and takes about an hour.
