Face Lift: What Is It?
The term "face lift" suggests a lifting of the entire face. Actually, a facelift is really a lower face lift in that it makes dramatic improvements in the neck and jaw line. There are very few procedures that produce as dramatic and reliable results as face lift.
Newer techniques have emerged that have improved the longevity of the procedure while minimizing the downtime. The key to long-lasting face lift results is the tightening of the dense covering of the underlying muscles, known as the SMAS (Superficial Musculo Apineurotic System). The majority of the face lifting procedures that are performed by non-plastic surgeons only tighten the skin or use barbed sutures. These types of face lifts go by the name of "J" lifts or "S" lifts, and their results do not last.
Face Lift in Del Mar
Face lift surgery is an art form that should only be performed by board-certified plastic surgeons. The artistry of the face lift begins with the design of the incisions relative to the individual's face, a complete knowledge of the anatomy, and the insetting of the skin. Dr. Chasan prefers to place incisions behind the tragus, the bump in front of the ear, so that they are inconspicuous. It is very important to inset the earlobes so that they hang naturally. The sideburn should not be elevated; a key tip-off to a poorly performed face lift. Lastly, the posterior hairline should not be jagged or have a step off so face lift patients can wear their hair up without any visible scars.
Although face lift is a surgical procedure, the incisions are well hidden and become very inconspicuous. A face lift can be performed alone. However, Dr. Chasan often recommends that his patients undergo a face lift in conjunction with other procedures to enhance the results. He often performs eyelid surgery and/or brow lift in conjunction with face lift. Dr. Chasan performs fac elift surgery on an outpatient basis, typically in about three hours. Most face lift patients are back to their normal routine in approximately ten days.
