The rhytidectomie or facelift is the surgical procedure of choice to address some the signs of face and neck aging that cannot be corrected by non-surgical injectables. The various facelift procedures rejuvenate the face, chin fat, and neck creating a natural and long-lasting youthful appearance.
The aging process of the face and neck has an effect on the deep facial tissues as well as the skin. Wrinkles and deeper skin folds increase and muscle and fatty tissue descend and sag. With the medical advancements in injectables, some signs of ageing can be treated in a non-surgical manner. Still, there are many signs of an ageing face and neck that can only be treated via surgical means.
Some people might consider a face left if you have experienced sagginess in the cheek area, deep creases between the base of the nose and the corners of the mouth, facial and neck wrinkles, and diminished chin and neck contours
The facelift procedures rejuvenate the face and neck by pulling out the wrinkles and folds, lifting sagging muscles and deep tissue to a higher and more youthful position, and removing extra skin. The patient’s own fat can also be re injected to plump up areas of the face in a more permanent and natural manner than with medical injectables. Most face lifts last 7-15 years and can be repeated. Other procedures such as brow lifts, chin augmentation, eyelid lift, nose reshaping, and lip enhancement can be performed.
Individual patient’s needs
The scars are placed in areas that are well hidden and out of site such as the hairline and outer ear. It varies depending on gender and other features. There are various different subtypes to face and neck lifts, and the treatment of each patient has to be tailored to individual patient’s needs. These options will be explained to you during your consultation with Dr. Mok.
