A primary facelift, also known as rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure to rejuvenate the face and neck by reducing signs of aging. It typically involves tightening facial skin, removing excess fat, and repositioning underlying tissues. Dr. Guida offers a comprehensive, deep plane facelift that combines neck lift techniques and laser skin resurfacing for complete transformation, helping you reclaim your youthful facial skin and contours.
The Facial Aging
Facial aging is a natural process in both men and women, typically becoming noticeable in the mid to late 40s and advancing over the following decades. It leads to distinct changes in the face and neck, often resulting in an older, more tired appearance. While many people remain physically and mentally active, this aging appearance can conflict with how they feel internally, prompting a desire for rejuvenation while maintaining a natural look.
Double Chin & Neck Contour Issues
One of the earliest signs of aging in the face is the development of fullness and excess fat in the neck area, often described as a “double chin” or, as it progresses, a “turkey gobbler neck.” This is characterized by increased neck fat and a loosening of the skin and neck muscles. This results in a less defined jawline and a fuller neck appearance.
Primary Facelift Treats:
- Sagging in the midface
- Deep creases below the lower eyelids
- Deep creases along the nose extending to the corner of the mouth
- Facial fat that has fallen or is displaced
- Loss of muscle tone in the lower face, creating jowls
- Loose skin and excess fatty deposits under the chin and jaw
- Wrinkled or sun-damaged facial skin
- Uneven skin tone or texture
- Slackened skin and decreased elasticity
- Overall tired or aged facial appearance
Advantages of 3-in-1 Facelift:
- Addresses multiple aging signs: sagging skin, loss of volume, and skin texture
- Provides a more natural, youthful appearance
- Targets deeper structural layers for longer-lasting results
- Combines surgical lifting, liposuction, and lasers for comprehensive rejuvenation
- Minimizes scarring and achieves a more subtle look
- Effective for significant sagging and extensive aging signs
- Reduces tension on the skin, leading to natural-looking outcomes
- Suitable for a wide range of ages and skin types
- Reduces recovery time compared to multiple separate procedures
