For individuals who have lost volume of the face and neck tissue, fat transfer and fillers can be included to improve the aesthetic appearance. Other treatments such as skin resurfacing, chemical peels and laser therapy help improve the smoothness and texture of the face and neck skin.

Facelift procedure

The aesthetic surgeon initiates the facelift surgery procedure by administering a dose of anesthetic to reduce the pain and discomfort during the procedure. The incision type depends on the degree of changes the patient requires during the treatment. The incisions are classified as traditional facelift, limited incision facelift or a neck lift.

During a traditional facelift, the incision begins from the hairline at the temples continuing around the ear up to the lower scalp. Fat deposits are repositioned or removed from deeper layers and the muscles are lifted. Later the excess skin is trimmed and the incisions are stitched closed using skin adhesives or sutures.

Another method is the limited incision facelift during which smaller incisions are made from the temples and continuing around the ear. These mini-lifts aid skin relaxation and helps rejuvenate the skin.

A neck lift incision is made in the neck and chin area to remove the sagging tissues, the loose skin below the chin and neck and to remove the fat accumulation under the chin. The incision begins from the front of the earlobe and ends behind the ear.
