A facelift removes excess skin and while tightening facial muscles for a more youthful, firm appearance. Advanced facelift techniques utilized by Dr. Marchant can create a lifted, yet natural look. Dr. Marchant will make incisions at the temple, continuing around the front of the patient’s ear and just under the earlobe. By manipulating the facial muscles and tissue through these incisions, Dr. Marchant can improve the contour of the lower jaw.
If a neck lift is performed as well, the incision will extend behind the ear and back down into the hairline for maximal pull of the neck muscle and excess skin. An incision is also made under the chin to tighten the two bands that become lax as we age.
Bruising and swelling may be visible for two to three weeks after surgery; however, patients usually begin to feel well several days after receiving their facelift. Facelift patients do not leave our office with harsh or surprised expressions. A qualified facelift surgeon such as Dr. Marchant can achieve results, which will leave you looking naturally rejuvenated. The deep lines, which form between the nose and the corners of the mouth, will be softened. Sagging facial skin forming jowls and other wrinkles will cease to be a problem, and a naturally youthful look will remain.
