What Areas of the Face Can a Facelift Improve?

Judging by the name alone, a patient might assume a facelift is designed to lift and rejuvenate the entire face, from forehead to chin; however, that’s not entirely accurate. Though the name can be a touch misleading, the benefits of this popular facial cosmetic enhancement are numerous. Dr. Richard Zeff, a top plastic surgeon in New Hampshire, reveals what you can expect from this procedure.

A traditional facelift is actually a combination of a facelift and a neck lift, aiming to lift and restore the tissues of the mid and lower face (e.g., the cheeks, chin, jawline, and neck). Unless specifically discussed, this does not include correction of the eyelids or forehead – although there are procedures that can target concerns localized to these areas. For instance, a mini facelift is usually a less invasive procedure that can address the lower face with less emphasis on the lower neck.

Aesthetic enhancement is not one-size-fits-all, and it’s not unusual to have cosmetic goals that go beyond what a single procedure can achieve. For this reason, we custom-design every treatment plan per the individual’s needs and desired outcome. Dr. Zeff offers traditional facelift, mini facelift, brow lift, eyelid surgery, and non-surgical treatments that can be applied and modified as needed to optimize your result.

Facelift surgery can provide dramatic yet natural-looking rejuvenation of the mid and lower face, and Dr. Zeff’s patient-centered approach emphasizes safety and natural-looking results. Talk to us about what you hope to achieve, and we will help you determine if a facelift and/or another method can give you the outcome you’ve always wanted.
