Incisions are then placed in well-hidden areas such as behind the hairline or near the ear. Skin tissue is pulled, fat deposits are readjusted higher on the face, and excess skin is tightened. Our experts in cosmetic facial procedures will apply different surgical methods depending on the specific area of concern.
If your main facial concerns are primarily between the eyes and mouth, we have a mid-facelift option that may be right for you. This procedure focuses on the midsection of the face which is ideal if you don’t need to have full facial surgery.
Both procedures run the risk for facial numbness, muscle weakness, and infection. These risks can be discussed further at your individual consultation.
