How a Full Facelift Can Turn Back the Hands of Time

Aging is a natural process that affects everyone, but its visible signs can sometimes leave individuals feeling less confident about their appearance. Fortunately, modern cosmetic surgery offers a way to turn back the hands of time and restore a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance. One such transformative procedure is the full facelift, which addresses multiple facial aging concerns simultaneously. At Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC, under the expert care of Dr. Ben Stong, patients can undergo a comprehensive full facelift tailored to their unique needs and desired outcomes.

Understanding the Full Facelift Procedure

A facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure designed to address various signs of facial aging, including sagging skin, deep wrinkles and loss of facial volume. However, a traditional facelift only addresses the lower portion of the face around the jowls, jawline and the transition into the neck area.

Dr. Ben Stong takes a personalized approach to each full facelift procedure, carefully assessing the patient’s facial anatomy, aesthetic goals and unique concerns. Based on this evaluation, he develops a customized treatment plan that may include a combination of surgical techniques to achieve optimal results. Common components of a full facelift may include:

  • Facelift: The facelift component of the procedure focuses on lifting and tightening the underlying facial muscles and tissues to restore a smoother, more youthful contour to the lower face and jawline. Excess skin is also removed to eliminate sagging and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
  • Neck Lift: A neck lift targets loose, sagging skin and excess fat deposits in the neck area to create a more defined jawline and neckline. This component of the procedure can address concerns such as neck bands, jowls and a “turkey neck” appearance.
  • Brow Lift: Brow lift surgery, also known as a forehead lift, is often included in a full facelift to address sagging eyebrows, forehead wrinkles and horizontal forehead lines. Lifting and repositioning the brow can open up the eyes and create a more youthful, refreshed appearance.
  • Eyelid Lift: Also known as blepharoplasty, eyelid lift surgery focuses on rejuvenating the appearance of the upper and lower eyelids by removing excess skin, fat, and muscle tissue. This component of the procedure can help eliminate under-eye bags, puffiness and drooping eyelids for a more alert and youthful look.

Full facelifts are always customized to the patient. While some individuals may need several procedures to obtain the desired appearance, others may only need one or two added to the traditional facelift.

Benefits of a Full Facelift Procedure

Undergoing a full facelift can offer numerous benefits for patients seeking comprehensive facial rejuvenation, including:

  • Dramatic improvement in facial contours and definition
  • Smoothing of deep wrinkles and fine lines
  • Tightening of sagging skin and underlying facial tissues
  • Restored volume and youthful fullness to the cheeks and midface
  • Enhanced confidence and self-esteem in one’s appearance
  • Less recovery and downtime compared to completing various procedures separately

Following a full facelift, patients can expect some swelling, bruising and discomfort in the treated areas, which typically subside within a few weeks. Dr. Stong provides detailed post-operative instructions and personalized care to help patients navigate the recovery process smoothly and achieve optimal results. While individual experiences may vary, most patients enjoy long-lasting improvements in their facial appearance, with results that can last for years with proper care and maintenance.

A full facelift performed by an experienced facial plastic surgeon like Dr. Ben Stong at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC offers a transformative solution for individuals seeking to reverse the visible signs of facial aging and restore a more youthful, refreshed appearance. By combining advanced surgical techniques with personalized treatment planning, Dr. Stong helps patients achieve natural-looking results that enhance their overall facial harmony and confidence.
