When you are dissatisfied about your facial appearance and structure, you may wan to to tighten the skin around your face then a face lift surgery could be for you. This may be a full facelift, a partial facelift, or other surgery that will correct your nose, your drooping or baggy eyelids, or a too-weak or too-strong jaw.
There are 4 main areas of the face where the sagging effects of aging are most apparent, in the forehead, in the temporal and cheek area, in the lower jaw, and in the neck. With aging, facial fat either descends or goes away, or a combination of both, and muscle tissue may lose mass and laxity.
Depending on the extent of this movement or reduction of fat and tissue and the sagging of your skin, Our surgeon Dr. Chartchai will consider what will give you the best and most natural looking outcome. He will determine during the consultation whether a full facelift is best, or whether the results you want can be achieved by doing a partial facelift.
- Mid-face Lift – (Also called a temporal lift or cheek lift) In the temple region, droopy skin particularly of the upper eyelids can be so significant it can interfere with a person’s vision. Most people accept the crow’s feet that appear when they smile as long as they are minimal. A mid-face lift will elevate some of this descended temple fat as well as smooth out your wrinkles. Wrinkles that appear with smiling will not be eliminated but will be less severe. A combination of forehead lift and/or lower blepharoplasty may be necessary to treat significant crow’s feet. In the cheeks, as facial fat and muscle tissue disappears or decreases, it bunches up just above the nasal-labial crease giving the typical appearance of a fallen face. During a facelift, or the mid-face lift, Dr. Chartchai will choose the best of several techniques to reposition the underlying tissue upward.
- Lower Face Lift – A fleshy, sagging neckline may be due to jowling and fatty deposits below the chin or excess drooping of skin. Dr. Chartchai may determine that simply removing the excess, or a bit of liposuction may be all that’s necessary. Or he may advise that a neck lift is the procedure best able to fix your problems. In order to tighten prominent bands or cords in the neck and restore a younger, chiseled look to your neck and chin line, surgery will be required.
