Improve Visible Signs of Aging
A facelift is a common cosmetic surgery procedure that can improve visible signs of aging on particular areas of the face and neck. This operation is designed to tighten and reposition the sagging tissues of the cheeks, jaw line, jowls, and neck.* This procedure is often combined with other cosmetic procedures to rejuvenate or enhance the appearance of the eye, forehead, chin, or cheekbone areas.*
In-Office Facelift in Delaware
An in-office facelift is performed with local anesthesia and light sedation, right here in our beautiful Wilmington, DE office.
• Incisions are made within the hairline above and behind the ear, and in the natural creases area just in front of the ear. The incisions are carefully placed to minimize noticeable scarring.
• The loose and wrinkled skin and deeper muscles of the face and neck are then redraped and tightened.
• Excess skin is removed, and if required, excess fat can be suctioned at the same time (often from the neck area).
