Minimally Invasive Deep Plane Facelift (Total Face And Neck Rejuvenation)
This patient underwent a minimally invasive deep plane facelift for total face and neck rejuvenation. Notice that even though she has a dramatic improvement after surgery, she still looks extremely natural, and like herself.
This patient underwent a neck lift with Dr. Bryant. At her request, her face was not treated during this procedure. A small incision was made in a crease below her chin, and another around her earlobe. Once healed, the incisions are nearly invisible.
This patient was seen by Dr. Bryant after she had a facelift several years before from a different surgeon. She underwent a revision neck lift and a lower face lift.
About Facial Rejuvenation
As a patient, researching facial rejuvenation treatments can be overwhelming. There are many different methods and “brand names” for both surgical and non-surgical facial rejuvenation. Our promise to you is that we will strive to be as transparent as possible during the consultation process.
Dr. Bryant is skilled in both non-surgical and the most advanced minimally invasive surgical techniques for facial rejuvenation. Some of his patients choose to have their procedure using only local (injection) anesthesia. This means they are awake but comfortable during the process. The benefit of this method is that it allows for a faster recovery since no additional anesthesia medications are used. Other patients opt for “twilight” intravenous anesthesia. This is similar to what someone would experience when undergoing a colonoscopy or other small office procedure. An anesthesiologist helps optimize your comfort at every moment throughout the case. Twilight anesthesia takes a few extra hours for recovery, but can be more comfortable for select patients.
How Long Does a Deep Plane Facelift Last?
A deep plane facelift is one of the single most powerful, rejuvenating procedures available for the face. Because this method of facelift works by restoring the youthful positions of both skin and deeper facial soft tissues, the changes made are essentially permanent. While the results of the lift are long-lasting, your face does continue to undergo the stresses of aging throughout your life, even after a facelift. This means that even though your facial features will evolve over time, you can expect to consistently look many years younger than you would otherwise.
What is a mini face lift?
A mini face lift is specifically devised to reduce aging across prominent facial features such as the cheeks, jawline, and lower eyelids. The ultimate goal of this procedure is to promote facial harmony while lifting the skin across numerous regions of the face to create a youthful aesthetic.
What can I expect from a mini face lift?
A mini face lift is best for those experiencing a more mild to moderate extent of sagging skin or wrinkling. This procedure utilizes less invasive techniques than a traditional face lift, allowing your cosmetic surgeon to tighten the skin through smaller incisions. Through these incisions, structural tissues that surround the midface are carefully elevated and tightened to remedy jowling while refining the jawline and creating a youthful aesthetic.
Your procedure can be performed through either one of two distinctive methods or combined:
- Anterior mini face lift is for those looking to rejuvenate the lower face
- Posterior mini face lift, sometimes referred to as a mini neck lift, is for those looking to renew the appearance of the jowl and neck areas
What are the advantages of a mini face lift?
- Procedure only takes around 2-3 hours
- Very minimal downtime of around 1 week
- Anesthetic is implemented to enhance patient comfortability
- Instantaneous, long-lasting results
Who is an ideal candidate for a mini face lift?
Ideal candidates for a mini face lift are those looking for a less invasive means of correcting mild to moderate sagging and age lines. However, women who are pregnant as well as those who have been diagnosed with a condition that impairs their body’s healing capabilities may be referred to an alternative option. Dr. Tate can help you decide if a mini face lift is the right choice for you following a review of your medical history.
