What Is a Facelift?
Dr. Chet Mays performs a full range of facial surgical treatments at Mays Plastic Surgery & Med Spa in Louisville, KY where our most popular procedure is a facelift. This surgery concentrates on precise areas of the face to treat lax dermal tissue and lines to produce a rejuvenated, firmer appearance. Based upon your concerns and goals for surgery, a facelift can focus on the eyes, the cheeks and mid-face, the bottom two-thirds including the mouth, jowls, neck, and more for an all-over youthful look. The facelift method used depends on your goals, the condition of your skin, the degree of skin laxity, lifestyle, age, and other factors. Some individuals may be candidates for a full facelift while some may only be ready for a mid-facelift. Dr. Mays is an experienced surgeon who completely understands the anatomy and complex intricacies of facelift surgery. The goal is to create a natural look that's gorgeous, subtle, and still striking.
How is a Facelift Performed?
No matter the issue you wish to enhance, there are various levels of facelifts available. Some facelifts address the upper portion of the face, and others focus on the middle and lower. Furthermore, some techniques are slightly more invasive than others. It is also common for some men and women to have an eyelid lift, brow lift, or BOTOX® and fillers to complement and enhance their final results. Some of the more common facelift techniques include:
- Full Facelift: Considered the gold standard, the full or "traditional" facelift most often makes an incision near the hairline, then extends down to the temples, reaching the base of the ears. The deeper layer of facial muscles is delicately stretched and securely tightened to create a lifted look, which reduces excessive lines and wrinkles. This facelift is used for individuals who have signs of aggressive aging. During a full facelift, various procedures may be combined, including an eyelid lift to enhance the eyes or neck reduction for the lower region.
- Mid-Facelift: With a similar approach to the mini facelift, the mid-facelift (cheeks) addresses the droopy features close to the cheekbones and the upper jaw. This lift works great for those who seek improvement in the middle to lower region of the face, which also improves the look of the jowls.
- Lower Facelift: This lift works on the neck region, chin, and jowls in many cases. Nonsurgical methods, such as laser skin tightening or KYBELLA®, can also be used for chin reduction to attain a softer, tighter neck.
- Mini Facelift: When undergoing a mini facelift, a thin, small incision is made around the ears to lift the skin, which enhances the mouth, jawline, and jowls. This process creates nice and subtle enhancements that look beautiful and natural.
Love Dr. Mays! He is an amazing surgeon!! - Dr. Mays is a true blessing! Before my facelift procedure I had a great deal of loose skin on my neck due to weight loss. It was affecting my self confidence; there was no way to hide it. I came to see Dr. Mays because he came highly recommended. Dr. Mays along with his staff went out of their way to make me feel comfortable! I knew instantly that he was the doctor that I would have surgery with.He suggested that I have a lower facelift with fat transfer to the face to fix my excess skin in my neck and jowls and loss of collagen. My results were beyond my expectations! My loose skin on my neck is gone! My face is no longer saggy. Best of all I am happy with my reflection in the mirror. I have more self confidence now as a woman in her 60's then I've had in a long time! I would truly recommend him for any cosmetic procedure!!
