Most people are familiar with facelift surgery. This procedure allows people with sagging skin and other signs of aging to enjoy a refreshed appearance.

About signs of aging

Natural aging and environmental factors, like sun exposure and smoking, can add years to our appearance. While we can slow some signs of aging with over-the-counter products and cosmetic injectables, they cannot always treat excess sagging skin or loss of definition in the face. At Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery, we can address problems, like fine lines and wrinkles, as well as loose skin through different types of facelift surgery.

Types of facelift surgery

So, what happens during a facelift in Beverly Hills, CA and Las Vegas, NV? In general, a facelift requires making small incisions around the hairline. We then remove excess skin while tightening the underlying tissues. Many are surprised to learn that not all facelift surgeries are created equal. Each of our procedures is designed to accomplish separate goals. We recommend studying the following options before moving forward:

  • Full facelift: reserved for advanced loose skin and signs of aging

  • Mid-facelift: treats the lower two-thirds of the face and the jowls

  • Lower facelift: addresses the chin and neck area as well as the jowls

  • Mini facelift: includes less invasive techniques for small enhancements around the mouth and jawline

  • Revision facelift: refreshes the results of a previous facelift or corrects the results of a poorly executed surgery

Choosing the right plastic surgeon

Before you decide which facelift is right for you, it is important to choose an experienced and reputable plastic surgeon. While some facelift procedures are minimally invasive, performing a facelift still requires plenty of technical knowledge and a refined technique. Your doctor should also have an intimate understanding of facial anatomy. A consultation is the best time to bring up any questions or concerns you have about the process.

During your visit to Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery, Dr. Myint can perform a skin examination and discuss your goals. We then make facelift recommendations based on the results of this assessment. Our facial rejuvenation team is dedicated to setting the right expectations and making sure you have safe and successful results.
