Facelifts are frequently combined with other facial plastic surgery techniques and certain non-surgical cosmetic procedures. Many surgical methods can even be performed simultaneously, so the patient only needs one operation and one recovery period.
Facial Plastic Surgery by Dr. Nagy
Providing multiple face and body procedures, including the facelift, for Monmouth County residents for over a decade, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Nagy has the wealth of experience needed to transform his patients’ appearance. During your initial consultation, you’ll both discuss your aesthetic goals. After thoroughly studying your medical history and allergies, Dr. Nagy will examine the degree of facial skin laxity and other concerns you may have.
All these considerations will give him a better understanding of which procedures would be most appropriate for your treatment plan. If a combination approach is in your best interest, Dr. Nagy might suggest one or more of the options below in addition to your facelift.
When patients are experiencing extensive wrinkles and loose skin on the face, these symptoms frequently continue down to the neck as well. For more uniform results above the neckline, Dr. Nagy often suggests merging the facelift and neck lift into one procedure, typically using some of the same incisions.
Also known as a forehead lift, a brow lift is used to raise saggy eyebrows, reduce the vertical lines between them, and reduce forehead lines, allowing for a more alert and youthful look. If you are also thinking of getting a facelift, it may make sense to do this at the same time.
Eyelid surgery, also known as a blepharoplasty, is designed to reduce puffiness or droopiness of the upper or lower eyelids. These conditions can not only cause a patient to look more “tired,” but sometimes also contribute to functional concerns with their field of vision.
A facelift can be an excellent opportunity for subtle alterations to your face’s proportions, especially with facial implants. For example, men might be interested in a chin implant in order to have a more masculine, “chiseled” look.
Depending on your skin’s aging process, it might be possible to couple dermal filler injectable therapy with a facelift to limit the latter’s intensity. Deciding which injectables should be used, where they can be administered, and when is the right time to use them relative to your facelift surgery are best determined by Dr. Nagy during your consultation.
While the effects of a facelift on wrinkles and sagging skin can be dramatic, laser treatments can be more well-suited to surface-level concerns such as:
- Acne scars
- Injury or surgical scars
- Liver spots
