Question : There are so many different types of facelifts available. What different facelift procedures do you perform?
Answer : There are many different types of facelift procedures I perform. I perform the procedure that will give you the best result based on what you desire. Facelift techniques can be defined most simply with two broad categories. One category defines the length of the incision starting with a very small incision around the ear often referred to as a mini lift, to a more extensive incision around the ear leading toward the traditional facelift. The other category of facelift is based on the level upon which the facelifting technique occurs. This can be just above the bone or subperiosteal, or it can be at the level of the muscle or at the level of the aponeurotic facial tissues. The facelift longevity really derives from patching the fascia in the deep underlying tissues and re-draping the skin. The common misconception is that the skin of the face is actually pulled tightly. This really is not the case as it is gently re-draped.
