An aging face can be given a more youthful look by correcting sagging jowls, neck and mid-face. Several facelift techniques are available:
The Abbreviated Technique uses shorter incisions and is ideal for people whose skin tone is good, only have mid-face aging, and who want the excess fat in their neck removed.
The Typical Incision begins along the hairline and may continue along or just inside the ear, and ends behind it. In this technique, underlying tissue is tightened, excess fat removed, and sagging skin reduced. Sometimes, a second incision under the chin is done.
Liposuction helps remove fat deposits.
