Facelift in Baltimore, MD
The aging process can leave you with wrinkles and loose skin around the face and neck. The facelift procedure is a way to rejuvenate and restore a youthful appearance by tightening and contouring the loose skin. Facial plastic surgeon Dr. Samuel Hahn of the Maryland Center for Facial Plastic Surgery performs facelifts for patients throughout the Baltimore, Towson, Columbia, and surrounding communities looking for natural, long-lasting results.
What is a Facelift?
A facelift procedure aims to restore the youthfulness of the face and neck. The facelift targets areas around the lower cheek and jawline as well as the upper neck. The procedure is performed by tightening the underlying soft tissue, which smoothens the overlying skin. The excess skin is then carefully contoured to provide the most natural-looking results. Each patient receives a personalized treatment plan that will be tailored to their goals.
Many patients also choose to have other procedures performed in combination with the facelift, such as blepharoplasty to simultaneously address signs of aging in the upper portion of the face, or fat transfer to volumize and lift the midface. Depending on the patient’s needs, injectables such as Botox® or dermal fillers, may be used after a facelift in order to smoothen residual fine lines and wrinkles.
What is a Mini-Facelift?
A mini-facelift is a limited incision facelift, that may be an option for you if there is only a limited area of concern such as early jowling or cheek laxity. This procedure is ideal for younger patients with good skin elasticity and mild facial aging. The mini-facelift procedure can be performed in the office with gentle sedation or local anesthesia. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Hahn to see if you are a good candidate for a mini-facelift.
What are the Benefits of a Facelift?
A facelift is a common procedure performed to rejuvenate the face and neck. The benefits of a facelift include:
- Restore smoother jaw and neck lines
- Smoothen skin and reduce wrinkles along the cheek and neck
- Provide youthful, natural-looking results that boosts self confidence
How is a Facelift Performed?
The exact technique used in performing a facelift depends on the surgeon, the patient’s facial structures, and the extent of correction desired. A mini-facelift procedure can be performed under local or sedation anesthesia, while a full facelift procedure is generally performed under sedation or general anesthesia. A facelift incision is placed in natural crease and hair lines around the ear and are difficult to see once healed. Through this incision, the skin and underlying connective tissue can be lifted and tightened to restore the youthful jaw and neck lines. Once the lift has been performed, the skin is carefully contoured to minimize tension and scarring. Depending on the extent of redundant tissue around the neck, a neck lift procedure may need to be performed in combination with the facelift to provide the desired results.
