Facelift
Drooping of the facial skin resulting in creases around the mouth , loose neck skin and jowl formation is treated with a facelift. This procedure can be a “limited” or “full” depending on the amount of droopiness. The excess neck and face skin is removed along with a tightening of the muscle/fascia layer right under the skin. The incisions are made around the ear with a second small incision sometimes used under the chin. This operation is often coupled with blepharoplasty surgery and brow lift.  Local with sedation( “twilight anesthesia”) or general anesthesia is used and surgical time varies between two and four hours. No overnight hospital stay is required.
