Facelift / Necklift
A facelift/necklift rejuvenates the face and neck by reducing sagging skin, lifting and tightening weakened muscles of the face and neck.
Why Do People Get Facelifts/Necklifts?
The natural aging process causes loss of elasticity of the skin. As we are exposed to the sun and pollutants, deeper wrinkles start to form. The effects of gravity cause underlying facial muscles in the cheeks and neck to become loose. Skin folds appear on the cheeks, and fatty tissue can appear around the neck and jowls, causing the jawline to lose its definition.
Weakened platysma muscles of the neck separate and form a “turkey wattle.” We accumulate sagging and wrinkled skin on our necks. We may also be struggling with the appearance of an unwanted double chin. A facelift (rhytidectomy) and neck lift can reduce these signs of aging.
What Can a Facelift/Necklift Do?
A facelift/necklift can rejuvenate the face and neck by reducing sagging skin, lifting and tightening weakened muscles of the face and neck and removing excess fat underneath the skin, which smoothens out and improves wrinkles. This combination procedure can reduce the look of jowls and can address persistent muscle banding in the neck.
The only way to learn if you are the right candidate for a facelift/necklift is to have a thorough discussion with Dr. Sultan during a consultation. Dr. Sultan will go over the facelift and necklift in greater detail, including information regarding the recovery process.
Dr. Sultan will ask you questions about your complete medical history, including any medications you are taking and any allergies you have. He will also discuss your expectations for the procedure with you.
Dr. Sultan will perform a physical examination and may take pictures of your neck to study your features in detail. If he believes that you are a good candidate for surgery after this, he will provide you with instructions on how to prepare for the procedure and a date will be set.
A rhytidectomy paired with a necklift surgery may be performed on an outpatient basis. It can take up to several hours to complete. First, anesthesia is administered in order to ensure patient comfort for the duration of surgery.
Small incisions will be made around your ears and might also be made under your chin; this give Dr. Sultan access to the underlying tissues.
