Many people are dismayed by the toll that time can take on the face. As the years pass, the combined effects of lost facial volume, thinning skin, gravity, sun damage, stress, heredity, and smoking can result in a loss of youthful facial contours and a tired, older appearance.
Types Of Facelifts
Dr. Egrari will custom-tailor your facelift in Seattle to suit your specific needs. There are three basic types of facelift surgery, including:
A mini-facelift procedure may be appropriate for patients with mild jowling and skin sagging. This less invasive technique allows the plastic surgeon to use shorter incisions to tighten deep facial tissues. Incisions are typically located along the hairline, above the ear, or in the natural crease around the ear. This surgery may be performed to refine the jawline, correct and tighten jowls, and rejuvenate the appearance of your face.
Traditional facelift surgery is performed to address moderate to severe aging in the mid-face and neck. This procedure requires a more extensive recovery time and produces more dramatic results than a mini-facelift. Incisions are discretely placed behind the hairline and hidden in the natural folds around the ear.
This procedure is the ultimate in facial rejuvenation, as it extends towards the temples and pulls the entire mid-face and corners of the eyes towards a natural but youthful direction.
