Will Facelift Surgery Make My Face Look Symmetrical?

By: Dr. Shoib Myint


As you age, your body starts to make less collagen and elastin, which can lead to sagging of the face, loss of volume, and the development of fine lines and wrinkles. Gravity also starts to pull your face downward. As a result, your face can look less symmetrical. It’s not uncommon to notice that one eye droops more than the other, or you have various degrees of sag on either side of your face. A facelift can dramatically improve your facial symmetry by effectively lifting each side of your face, so it's all at the same level. With a surgical facelift, excess skin is removed to help create a younger, smoother, tighter appearance.

All about facelifts in Las Vegas and Beverly Hills

If you are interested in undergoing a facelift, contact Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery in Las Vegas or Beverly Hills. During a consultation, Dr. Myint will discuss your goals to determine which facelift procedure can best fit your needs. It is not uncommon for patients to opt to bundle procedures such as a brow lift with BOTOX for further enhancement.

Dr. Myint carries out the following procedures:

  • Full facelift: A full facelift is ideal for older individuals. With a full facelift, an incision is made near the hairline that will span from the temples down to the base of the ears. The patient’s deep layer of tissue and facial muscles are then stretched to lift and smooth the skin. This form of a facelift is ideal for creating a symmetrical outcome because it lifts away droopiness.

  • Mid-facelift: With a mid-facelift, small incisions are made next to the ears to remove any sagging around the upper jaw and cheekbones. This form of a facelift can remove unwanted jowls.

  • Lower facelift: The lower facelift helps to lift the neck and chin area to provide a younger-appearing neck.

  • Mini facelift: With a mini facelift, a small incision is made next to the ears so that the skin can be repositioned higher to help improve the jawline and around the mouth.

  • Revision facelift: With a revision facelift, Dr. Myint will refresh a past facelift procedure to help maintain your appearance.

Following a facelift, patients experience slight to moderate pain. You’ll also notice swelling and puffiness of the face. Over the course of the next few weeks, symptoms will ease, and you will notice a more symmetrical and younger-looking face. Your skin can appear slightly lifted and smoother.
