Peachtree City Facelift Surgery
Do you wish you could turn back time and see a more youthful face looking back at you in the mirror? Facelift surgery, when performed by the right plastic surgeon, can help you look more youthful and feel more confident. If you live in Peachtree City, you have local access to one of the most experienced and talented facelift surgeons in the country. Dr. Benjamin C. Stong at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC can help you achieve the youthful appearance you desire.
Facelifts, or rhytidectomies, vary in type and technique. A typical facelift involves adjusting the midface region around the nose, mouth, jaw and cheeks to combat sagging or drooping skin. A full or complete facelift uses additional procedures to lift the brows and eyelids for a balanced renewal. The techniques can vary from a traditional lifting of just the skin to more advanced deep plane methods that move both the skin and connected tissue underneath.
Dr. Stong is experienced and accomplished in performing the many different types of facelifts using the most reliable techniques for the best results. The deep plane method is the preferred method since it creates a more natural appearance and results that last much longer than only shifting the skin. However, few plastic surgeons have the expertise and training that Dr. Stong has in this advanced technique. His skill, along with his artistic abilities, are the perfect combination to give our patients exceptional results when they come to us for their facelift surgery.
What Is a Deep Plane Facelift?
As the face ages, the skin and tissue to which it is connected, the Subcutaneous Musculo-Aponeurotic System (SMAS), can begin to sag. The skin loses elasticity as collagen production wanes and gravity pulls the tissues down. Traditional facelifts only pull the skin upward, leaving the sagging tissue underneath in place. Deep plane facelifts, or composite rhytidectomies, leave the skin and SMAS connected and shift both into a higher position on the face.
The differences between the traditional and deep plane techniques are extensive when it comes to the results. The deep plane technique allows for a more natural, softer appearance, while just moving the skin can look artificial. Also, smaller incisions in the deep plane procedure allow for less scarring and quicker recovery. Less downtime is needed for the advanced deep plane procedure that Dr. Stong uses, with less pain and discomfort for our patients. Deep plane facelifts also can offer results that last for many years, while some other types of procedures can begin to fade in a matter of months.
Dr. Stong meets with each patient to discuss their expectations and desired results when they are considering facelift surgery. Using his expertise, he can recommend the type of facelift and other cosmetic procedures that can accomplish the results they are looking to achieve. Each patient receives a customized treatment plan that will work with their features to give them a youthful, natural appearance.
