What are the different types of facelifts offered?
Dr. Michael Eisemann and Dr. Bradley Eisemann perform several different types of facelifts in Houston at our state-of-the-art, private, accredited plastic surgery center:
A full facelift is ideal for patients with loose or sagging skin in the face and neck and wrinkles from the midface down through the jaw. This procedure requires an incision from the sideburn area, down the front of the ear, around the earlobe, and up behind the ear. The incision gives the surgeon the ability to lift and re-suspend underlying fat and muscle. The tissue is tightened and repositioned into a more appealing position, mitigating the effects of gravity and aging.
This technique is perfect for patients with only mild skin laxity and initial signs of aging. The mini-facelift reduces sagging in the cheeks, along the jawline, and throughout the neck. The incision for a mini-facelift is typically shorter, and the downtime is usually reduced.
In situations where a previous surgeon delivered subpar results, Drs. Michael and Bradley Eisemann can perform a revision procedure to correct errors and ensure you once again feel confident and secure in your appearance.
A liquid facelift is a non-surgical procedure performed using a combination of dermal fillers and injectables. It can be useful in temporarily reversing volume loss, smoothing lines, creases, and wrinkles, and establishing improved definition in the lower face. When there is moderate to severe skin laxity, however, a surgical facelift may be the best option.
