A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic surgery in Atlanta that improves the appearance of your face to result in a younger-looking face with tighter, less saggy skin. Numerous types of facelifts are available and include the following:
During a facelift, the cosmetic surgeon makes an incision that extends from the front, top of the ear in the hairline area, and runs along the front of the ear, as well as behind the ear into the hairline there.
The surgeon then releases the skin from the facial muscles and fat and gently pulls the skin tight. Once the desired appearance is seen, the surgeon will remove the excess skin and close the incision with sutures or staples.
Deep Plane Facelift
The deep plane facelift is considered the gold standard in facelifts and only a few number of surgeons including Dr. Stong often this treatment.
The deep plane facelift focuses more on muscles, ligaments, and fat layers rather than the skin. The results allow for tension-free movement without excessive tightness of the facial skin which gives a “worked on” appearance.
After having many facelifts under his belt Dr. Stong created his own technique for facelift procedures. The Kalos Lift focuses more on the SMAS (superficial musculoaponeurotic system) than the deep plane facelift. This treatment not only lifts the neck, lower cheek, and jawline but also the upper cheek or midface region.
The Kalos Lift allows for smaller incisions which reduces scarring, a smoother and tighter neck as well as a more natural appearance.
