As modern medicine has evolved, facelift procedures have become quicker, more comfortable, and more effective. Additionally, facial rejuvenation is now offered through both surgical and non-surgical techniques. It’s now easier than ever to find a face tightening procedure that fits your lifestyle and desired results. Read on to learn some of the most popular methods.
The traditional facelift is the classic surgical procedure used to tighten, re-contour, and significantly freshen your look. Dr. Saltz makes incisions in targeted areas of the face and neck and draws the skin and muscle into position. The results are impressive, all-encompassing, and long-lasting.
A mini-lift is a less invasive version of the traditional facelift because it uses smaller incisions around your hairline to lift the skin of your face. This method is preferred for patients who show early signs of aging or patients who want a surgical facelift with less recovery time.
Sagging cheeks are a typical sign of aging caused by the fat pads over the cheekbones drooping down. A mid-facelift will:
- Lift sagging cheeks
- Make you look less tired
- Give you a more rested appearance
Deep Plane Facelift
This is an invasive but highly effective surgical procedure that lifts both the skin and the facial muscles. A deep plane lift will also correct and lift the neck and jawline.
The deep plane method does not require skin to be pulled as tightly as other methods. Additionally, it allows Dr. Saltz to reposition the fat pads of your cheeks. Thereby, your results will look more natural and will last for an extended period.
Non-surgical facelifts allow you to achieve a lifted, sculpted result using targeted injections of fillers. Other non-surgical approaches include a type of ultrasound therapy called Ultherapy.
While the results of non-surgical facelifts last a relatively short time, they can be a good choice for those who only have minor signs of aging or aren’t ready for surgery.
