Facelift Surgery
A facelift can improve your appearance and give you a look that can be dramatic or simply refreshed and well rested. It is about rejuvenation and improving your appearance.  

Having a facelift won't change who you are, but it can return a youthful appearance to an otherwise tired-looking face.

A facelift is the most comprehensive approach to treating the wrinkles and sagging of the face caused by age. This procedure makes it possible to correct facial flaws brought on with aging.

Your choice of a qualified facial plastic surgeon is of paramount importance when undertaking this type of change in your appearance.

Because every face is unique, there are various factors to consider before a surgeon can select the facelift technique that will work best for you and provide the best results.

A surgeon's expertise allows him or her to evaluate the correct approach and determine whether a mini facelift or another type of cosmetic surgery might be a better option for you.

During a preliminary consultation, our cosmetic surgeons will examine the structure of your face, skin color and elasticity. Other factors that will be evaluated and discussed before considering surgery include your skin type, ethnic background and individual healing.

You will discuss your goal with Dr. Branham or Dr. Chi and together you will develop an individualized plan for facial rejuvenation that is just right for you. There are various techniques that are used in facelifts and you will need to talk about which approach is right for your particular facial features and areas of concern.

Although a facelift can be done alone, it may be used in conjunction with other facial enhancements such as a neck lift, forehead lift, eyelid surgery or a reshaping of the nose to obtain the most outstanding and natural results possible.

The surgery involves the removal of excess skin from the face and the tightening of deeper tissues beneath to provide longer lasting support. Fat may be repositioned and the jaw line smoothed for a more contoured appearance.

There is a wide-range of ages for individuals who choose facelift procedures. It is sometimes performed on patients in their thirties and has also been successfully performed on patients in their eighties. The aging process cannot be reversed, but a facelift can give back a more youthful, firm facial look.
