What is a facelift?
A facelift is an aesthetic procedure that lifts the midface and neck to a more youthful position, thereby eliminating, wrinkles, sagging skin, and jowls. With Dr. Hiatt's advanced surgical technique, patients achieve a natural-looking result that refreshes their entire facial appearance, making them appear several years younger.
The Benefits of Facelift Surgery
- Sculpted jawline and neck
- Firmer, smoother skin
- Increased confidence
The Facelift Procedure
- Incisions begin on either side of the face near the hairline at the temples and extend around each ear, ending in the lower scalp.
- Dr. Hiatt uses the deep plane facelift technique, which tightens not only the skin but also the deeper layers of facial tissue to provide the most natural-looking result.
- Men and women alike who have sagging jowls, marionette lines, neck bands, deep folds between their nose and lips, and sagging skin on the face and neck benefit most from a facelift. This procedure can also improve a double chin and bands on the neck.
Many patients choose to combine a facelift with another procedure, such as a brow lift and upper and lower eyelid surgery to shorten the overall recovery time and reduce the cost of two separate procedures. Many facelifts are also combined with fat grafting to fill “hollowed” cheeks to achieve more complete facial rejuvenation.
