While many patients believe that “facelift” refers to one specific procedure, the truth is that this term is often used to encompass several approaches of treatment, as well as their supplementary procedures. By calling Florentia Clinic to schedule a consultation with Dr. Maen Al Khateeb, you will be able to discover the facelift approach that is best for you.
Mini Lifts vs. Standard Lifts
Mini lifts reduce minor sagging near the cheeks, jawline, and neck. While not as comprehensive as standard lifts, they produce effective results with significantly shorter recovery time. Not everyone is a mini lift candidate; by consulting with your doctor, you can find out if a mini-lift will provide you with the results you are searching for.
Deep Plane Face Lift
Considered the gold standard for a surgical facelift, this procedure involves going in under the superficial musculoaponeurotic system and tightening it up with sutures or partial removal. Various versions or techniques are available, and the treatment produces long-lasting rejuvenation along the jawline and neck.
Facelifts can tighten the skin and tissue to create a younger appearance, but can only do so much regarding blemishes, acne scars, and other skin conditions that result from aging. Certain age-related wrinkles are also difficult to effectively treat with facelifts alone. In these cases, a dermal laser can be used to remove skin irregularities with precision. When combined with a facelift, laser resurfacing enhances the youthful appearance of the face.
Cheek augmentation is the placement of an implant onto the cheekbone. This procedure is specifically meant to make your cheeks more prominent within your facial frame, helping overcome a narrow facial appearance. Clients who are mostly concerned with changing a sunken look may benefit from this procedure alone. However, it can also be paired with a complete facelift procedure to create a more dramatic effect.
