The facelift procedure is commonly utilized on patients over age 40 to refine overall appearance and create a youthful, rested, attractive look. Many patients elect to undergo facelift surgery to reduce loose, sagging skin, as well as to address jowling and neck banding. Dr. Glazer will customize your facelift procedure to achieve an appearance that is noticeably toned and youthful. And because the facelift is tailored to your specific needs, it is possible to attain natural-looking results. The proper facelift procedure should address both the skin and muscle layers of the face as well as those in the neck to provide a long lasting and natural result. Dr. Glazer also believes in volume restoration as part of this procedure. In the past, pulling everything tight on the face was the goal. Today, however, unless the volume loss is replaced, it is very difficult to achieve the anticipated natural and balanced result. This volume restoration can be done with collagen stimulating fillers or with a person’s own adipose tissue taken from the stomach or inner thigh. Autologous fat augmentation will often be offered to patients at the time of a facelift/necklift procedure in order to provide the maximum benefit and optimal result.
