Receiving a modified facelift can help you to look more youthful, giving subtle results that will help you to look more refreshed. Each procedure is individualized and based on your particular anatomy. We always take our time with each patient so that they are happy with the results.
This procedure is performed through an incision in the temporal hairline which extends inside the ear and occasionally extends for a short distance behind the ear in the natural crease. The SMAS layer is elevated and tightened as is the loose platysma muscle of the neck. These tissues are then placed in an elevated position. This will help to produce a more longstanding result than simply tightening the skin. It will also contribute to improving the appearance of the scar by minimizing the tension placed on the skin closure. The skin will then be re-draped, and the excess portion removed. Sometimes a small drain is placed behind the ear, and a compression dressing is applied.
Our patients have been thrilled with the results that receive from modified facelifts. We always make sure that our patients are in good health before surgery; we will look at your complete medical history and ask you some additional questions to be certain. Your health is our top priority. During your initial consultation, we will be happy to answer any questions that you may have about the process. We will go over what types of foods and medications you need to avoid before and after surgery. Understanding and following our instructions will ensure that you receive the best possible results.
