Facelifts involve moving the skin and tissue on the facial structure to reverse the effects of aging. As skin loses its elasticity, it can begin to sag and droop. Deep lines can appear around the nose and mouth while bags appear under the eyes as cheeks droop. A basic facelift elevates the midface tissue to a more youthful position. However, not all facelift procedures are the same, nor is the expertise of the surgeon performing them.
Dr. Ben Stong is a dual board certified facial plastic surgeon with Fellowship training that has earned a stellar reputation as a top surgeon in the field of facelift surgery. His credentials and experience in the latest techniques of modern facelifts are combined with a natural artistic talent to get the best results for our patients. Not all surgeons are capable of performing the specialized techniques that Dr. Stong uses to give his facelift patients natural, lasting results with less scarring and a quicker recovery time.
Advanced Deep Plane Facelift
The traditional facelift is performed by shifting the skin to a higher position. This method can leave the patient looking like their skin was tightened or stretched; it can also fail quickly. Deep plane techniques are more advanced, involving the Subcutaneous Musculo-Aponeurotic System, or SMAS. This tissue underneath the skin also sags with time. Repositioning both the SMAS and the skin offers better results that can last for many years.
The composite rhytidectomy, or deep plane facelift, that Dr. Stong performs uses smaller incisions that leave smaller scars. The technique he uses also allows for less downtime after the procedure for a faster recovery. The composite procedure gives a more complete facelift, including moving the upper cheeks into a higher position to restore a youthful, energetic appearance.
Dr. Stong takes the time to discuss expectations and desired results with every patient to ensure that a facelift is the right procedure for them. While a facelift can erase years from the appearance of your face, it may not address all issues. Often a rhytidectomy is combined with other cosmetic procedures like a brow or eyelid lift to create a full facelift. Each procedure is tailored to the patient’s unique circumstances and desired results to meet their expectations.
Natural, Beautiful Facelift Results
One of the biggest fears of our patients when they consider a facelift procedure is looking “overdone” after the surgery. Most patients want to look more youthful without the tell-tale signs that they had plastic surgery. The advanced techniques that Dr. Stong uses help maintain a natural, soft appearance while still addressing the effects of aging. Our patients look years younger, and those who meet them for the first time would never guess they had “work done”; they just look more like they did a decade or more before.
