At David Shifrin MD in Chicago, facelift and necklift are the terms often used to describe techniques that can help restore the youthful volume, contour, and shape of the face and neck. Facelift procedures are designed to turn the clock back ten to fifteen years. These procedures are performed to achieve natural results, which allow our patients to appear refreshed, energized, and rejuvenated but not operated on. Depending on the type of facelift procedure, the recovery time may vary from one to four weeks. There are numerous procedures available to rejuvenate the face, cheeks, jowls, and neck. Despite the name used, the goal remains the same: to restore the youthful appearance of the face and neck by:
- Lifting skin and deeper tissue that has begun to sag
- Smoothing wrinkles, lines, and bands
- Restoring volume, tone and contour
The face and neck undergo many changes with time, weight fluctuations, and with exposure to the environment. The skin becomes thinner and less elastic, the volume of soft-tissue decreases, the attachments of the soft-tissue to the facial bones loosen, and even the facial bones change in volume and shape. The many cosmetic procedures that exist to rejuvenate the appearance of the face and neck should be tailored to your individual needs and goals. Whether you are a candidate for a minimal scar face lift (MACS lift or S-lift), a full face lift/neck lift procedure, fat grafting, liposculpture, or facial implants, Dr. Shifrin has the experience and skills to help you regain your youthful appearance.
