At Maryland Center for Facial Plastic Surgery, we understand that you want to look and feel like the best version of yourself at every age. As a result, when lines, wrinkles and sagging skin begin to erode your appearance, it may be time to consider a facelift. Of course, every face is different, and, as a result, every facelift is different as well. So if you are wondering about your options for a facelift, you have come to the right place. Here are the procedures you should keep in mind:
A Full Facelift
Designed to address the lower regions of the face, a full facelift targets the lower cheeks, jawline and upper neck. This procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia or sedation. Incisions are placed in the hairline and natural creases, so they will be mostly imperceptible post-procedure. Once the incision is made, Dr. Samuel Hahn will lift and tighten the connective tissue, contouring the skin to create a more vibrant and youthful appearance. Many patients opt to include other procedures, such as blepharoplasty or dermal fillers, for a comprehensive update to their look.
A full facelift may not be the right choice for every person. If you happen to have a limited area of concern and are a younger patient with good skin elasticity and mild facial aging, a mini-facelift may be more appropriate. During this procedure, Dr. Hahn will address the specific area of concern with a limited incision. Mini-facelifts are typically performed with gentle sedation or local anesthesia.
Which One is Better for Me?
Both of these procedures are highly effective at delivering impressive, first-rate results. However, the best way to determine which procedure is most relevant to your needs is to schedule a consultation. This will provide the proper time for you to share your concerns with Dr. Hahn, so that he can recommend a plan of action uniquely tailored to your needs.
