Kole Plastic Surgery Center performs facelifts for residents of Huntingdon Valley, PA, and surrounding areas.

What Is a Facelift?

A facelift is a very popular plastic surgery procedure that involves the tightening and smoothing of the face. It is also referred to as a rhytidectomy and can reduce or eliminate the visible effects of aging to both the face and neck. Generally, the skin is pulled tighter and excess skin is eliminated, thus resulting in a more youthful appearance. It is most commonly performed on patients who are 40 years of age or older and is done on both women and men.

How Is a Facelift Performed?

Three types of facelifts in Huntingdon Valley PA can be performed. These are the traditional facelift, the mid-facelift, and the short-scar. Traditional ones involve an incision extending from the patient’s hairline down to the base of the ear and being well hidden within the hairline and the skin’s natural folds. A mid-facelift is done to rejuvenate certain parts of the face and generally concentrates on the patient’s upper lip to the eyelid area. One of the most common aspects of this type of face lift involves repositioning the fat in the cheeks or in the lower eyelids. Finally, a short-scar facelift is also referred to as a “mini-facelift” and repositions the skin, facial tissues, and fat after the effects of aging have resulted in a loss of elasticity. It uses fewer and smaller incisions, making it one of the more desired face lift procedures.

No matter which type of facelift you choose, each procedure is performed under general anesthesia.
