What Areas of the Face Does 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, but 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 facelift is actually a combination of a facelift and a neck lift. Unless specifically discussed, this does not include correction of the eyelids or forehead. A traditional facelift will lift and restore the tissues of the mid and lower face, including the cheeks, chin, jawline, and neck. If your concerns are concentrated around the eyes and forehead, there are procedures which can address your specific concerns. A mini facelift is usually a less invasive procedure designed to correct the lower face with less emphasis on the lower neck.
It’s not unusual to have cosmetic goals that go beyond what a single procedure can achieve, which is why we custom-design every treatment plan per the individual’s needs and desired outcome. Aesthetic enhancement is not one-size-fits-all. As a result, 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 results.
