Face Lift – Full
Improves sagging facial skin, jowls and loose neck skin.
A full or complete facelift improves the skin and tissues of the lower two-thirds of the face, from the ears, across to the cheeks, and down to the jaw line, by removing excess fat, tightening muscles and re-draping skin.
Approximately four hours.
Usually general anesthesia is used or the patient may elect to have sedation and local anesthesia.
Usually this is an outpatient procedure, although some patients may require a short hospital stay.
Possible Side Effects
Temporary bruising, swelling, numbness and tenderness of the skin, as well as a tight feeling and dry skin. For men, permanent need to shave behind ears, where beard-growing skin is repositioned.
