Dramatically Tighter, Younger-Looking Skin
The effects of aging happen to all of us. Deep wrinkles and lines, sagging skin, and the loss of elasticity in our skin all become more noticeable over time. A facelift is a cosmetic surgery procedure that involves removing excess skin and tightening the underlying muscles of the skin. The results are a completely rejuvenated face with tighter skin that looks years younger.
At Kitsap Oral, Maxillofacial & Dental Implant Surgery, we offer facelifts in Silverdale, Poulsbo, and Port Orchard, WA. For younger-looking skin that you can feel confident about, contact our practice to schedule an appointment with our surgeons.
What Can a Facelift Treat?
A facelift is considered a surgical cosmetic procedure. By removing extra skin and tightening facial muscles, your face will look toned and refreshed. A facelift targets the lower two thirds of the face. A procedure that focuses on the forehead or eyebrow area is called a brow lift or forehead lift. This can be performed alongside a standard facelift procedure for a completely refreshed appearance across the entire face.
A facelift is an effective way to treat a variety of cosmetic concerns, such as:
- Sagging facial skin
- Excess skin giving the appearance of a double chin
- Moderate wrinkles
- Skin folds from the nose to the mouth
The Facelift Procedure
During the consultation, we will discuss your goals for treatment and the types of concerns you would like to address with cosmetic surgery. Prior to any type of procedure, we talk about the anesthesia options available to maximize your comfort. If a facelift is right for you, we will schedule an appointment at a future date for the procedure.
Some patients combine a facelift with blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), a forehead or brow lift, chin augmentation, and/or facial liposuction for more dramatic results. Local anesthesia combined with IV sedation is most common for this procedure, which allows you to rest in a semi-conscious state during surgery.
During the procedure, your surgeon will make incisions along the hairline at the temple, around the earlobe, and behind the ear. We will remove excess skin and tighten the facial muscles. Incisions are closed with sutures and because the incisions are made in less noticeable areas, there are no visible scars afterward.
Results are noticeable immediately. There will be some swelling, which can be managed with ice and by following the instructions provided by our office.
