As the skin ages, it is common to experience drooping, sagging, and wrinkled skin around the upper, mid, and lower face. At Carolina Plastic Surgery, Dr. Saira Saini can help smooth and tighten your appearance with facelift surgery to help you look as young as you feel.
What are Facelifts?
Also known as a rhytidectomy, a facelift is one of the best solutions for the long-term correction of visible signs of aging.
This procedure can help men and women correct multiple aesthetic concerns, including:
- Sagging skin in the midface
- Deep creases below the eyes or along the nose extending to the corners of the mouth
- Fallen fat deposits and loss of shape or volume in the face
- Loss of skin tone or the appearance of excess fat in the jaw and lower face, leading to the appearance of jowls or a double chin
Facelifts are designed to target visible signs of aging in all areas of the face, whereas other procedures such as eyebrow lifts focus on one specific area. In some cases, facelifts can be combined with other procedures to create maximum results.
These surgical options can be discussed with Dr. Saini during your consultation at our Fayetteville office.
The duration and extent of your facelift can depend on your personal preferences and if other procedures are being performed in addition to the surgery. All procedures at Carolina Plastic Surgery begin by making the patient completely comfortable, and incisions will be placed carefully around the ears, hairline and scalp to minimize visible scarring. Traditional facelifts involve lifting and redraping the skin in order to smooth signs of aging around the forehead, eyes, mouth, and chin, but there are other techniques that may be used depending on your level of correction.
Mild bruising, swelling, and some discomfort can be expected as the new facial contours heal. The healing process may be different for everyone, but Dr. Saini will advise you on how much time to safely take off from work and normal activities. Your progress and healing will be monitored with follow-up appointments, and most patients are able to see full results after all swelling and bruising has subsided.
