Face lifts can help correct deep lines, wrinkles, and creases; facial sagging; lost muscle tone; and loose skin and excess fat. And unlike injections, face lifts can also tighten the skin on the neck, creating an even more youthful overall appearance.
A face lift, or rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that is performed under either intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. In Lansing, a traditional facelift, an incision is made along the hairline and down below the ears. A limited incision facelift uses smaller incisions that follow the same line as a traditional face lift and may be done under local anesthesia. In a neck lift, small incisions are made just along the ear. Regardless of which procedure is chosen, after the incision is made, fat and tissue are sculpted and repositioned creating tighter, younger looking skin. Recovery times can vary from patient to patient, and it is important to follow all post-operative instructions carefully.
