Facelift Q & A

Feagin and Owen Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Center

What is a facelift?

A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that makes you look younger by:

  • Eliminating sagging and loose skin on your face and neck
  • Folds between your nose and the ear
  • Removing or reshaping fat that has fallen
  • Tightening or removing jowls over your jawline

Facelifts don’t take care of every potential problem, however, so you may choose to combine it with other surgical procedures that target specific problem areas, such as your eyebrows or eyelids.

Some patients also enhance their facelift with:

  • Facial implants: an implant can improve the appearance of a small chin, weak jaw, or lack of facial contour
  • Laser skin resurfacing: improves tone and texture
  • Injectable wrinkle reduction: dermal fillers, Botox®, or a fat transfer can be injected to diminish wrinkles

What changes are made during a brow lift?

A brow lift targets your forehead, so it reduces deep horizontal wrinkles, softens frown lines between your eyebrows, and raises sagging eyebrows. During a brow lift, the doctors at Feagin and Owen Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Center may also tighten loose tissue in your upper eye.

What is blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, can be performed on your upper lids, lower lids, or both. Some patients need a blepharoplasty to relieve eyelid problems that interfere with their vision, while others choose the procedure to rejuvenate the area around their eyes.

Eyelid surgery treats:

  • Loose or sagging skin with folds that extend to the upper lid lash line
  • Drooping lower eyelids
  • Bags under your eyes
  • Excess skin in the lower eyelid
  • Fatty deposits under your eye

What problems are corrected with a neck lift?

Many patients discover that their age begins to show in their neck before it appears on their face. If that’s the challenge you face, then you may only need a neck lift to restore your youthful appearance.

A neck lift, or lower rhytidectomy, surgically improves signs of aging in your jawline and neck. This includes removing excess fat and skin in your lower face, including jowls, fat under your chin, and loose neck skin. When the doctors at Feagin and Owen Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Center perform a neck lift, they can also minimize muscle banding in your neck
