A Facelift helps a Person look Younger

A variety of reasons affect how a person looks – aging, genetics, a stressful lifestyle, and environmental factors all play a role. A facelift by Dr. Kelly can help a person revert back to the rejuvenated, younger, look they remember. They still look like themselves, just refreshed!

As a person ages, we lose the deep facial fat we associate with a youthful look. As a result of this facial fat loss, the skin and muscles of the face begin to sag. To make matters worse, the fat in the jowls and under the chin may increase as we age. With time, our faces go from being “heart-shaped” to “square”. In addition, skin loses elasticity as we age and is prone to showing signs of sun damage. Facial muscles sag and bone loss occurs. Without surgical correction, the passage of time gives us all an “aged” look.

Dr. Kelly tailors the procedure to the needs of each individual patient.
Unlike most surgeons, he doesn’t perform the same “cookie cutter” operation for every face lift.

As needed for each individual,
his facelift procedures may include:

  • Redraping of loose skin and removal of excess skin. Skin tightening alone is never performed as that leads to an “overdone” look.
  • Fat grafting to areas of fat loss is almost always performed. Common areas of fat grafting are the pre-jowl, nasolabial fold, malar area, temples, and upper and lower lids. The return of facial volume to areas where fat has been lost during aging, helps the final result look more natural and the patient to look refreshed.
  • Removal of excess fat in the jowls and under the chin, as needed, can be an important component of surgery.
  • Tightening of lax muscles in the face and neck help to give a lasting result and puts the tension on deeper structures so that the skin and outer appearance is natural and not “tight”
  • Shaving of submandibular glands and digastric muscles can help correct deeper structures that also contribute to an aged appearance of the neck.

While having a face lift procedure, many patients decide to also have additional procedures to improve their overall facial appearance. These procedures can include a lateral brow lift, upper and/or lower eyelid surgery, and laser skin resurfacing to treat areas that are not part of the facelift operation. These other operations can usually be performed at the same time as the facelift.
