Facelift (Upper Facial Rejuvenation)
The upper 1/3 of the face consists primarily of the forehead, the upper eyelids, and the lower eyelids. Signs of aging can occur individually in any one of these components or in any combination. Goals of surgical rejuvenation are to restore a youthful appearance and balance without surgical stigmata (i.e., present a natural appearance).
Mid Facelift (Mid Facial Rejuvenation)
For a mid facelift, via a small incision in the upper Buccal recess (within the mouth between the upper lip and teeth) and a small incision in the front scalp, the entire cheek tissue is re-positioned to its natural youthful higher position.
Full Facelift (Full Facial Rejuvenation)
Full Face and Neck Lifts give all of the benefit of lower facelifts and additionally elevate the cheek to a more youthful position as well as lessen the Nasolabial folds (NLF- the sometimes deep groove between the lower nose and corner of the mouth). Similar to incision of Lower Facelift, however the incision also extends around the sideburn and rarely into the scalp behind the ear.
Extended Facelift (Full Facial Rejuvenation)
An Extended Facelift is the combination of a Full Facelift and a Mid Facelift. For persons with marked facial aging, extended facelifts produce the most dramatic natural result.
