As we age, our facial bone density and fat pads decrease, in combination with a loss of collagen and skin elasticity, which leaves many men and women unhappy with the overall appearance of their face. A facelift (rhyidectomy) is one of the best and only options to address medium to significant overall facial aging and to address the appearance of jowls and deep smile lines. However, not only does Dr. Khanna tighten the skin, she also deals with the underlying structural concerns, which ensures an extremely positive, natural and more long-lasting result.
Face lift – neck lift surgery is performed in our fully accredited clinic under a local anesthetic with sedation, or under general anesthesia. Dr. Khanna makes a series of incisions to help eliminate loose skin and re–drapes the remaining tissue into a more youthful position. It is a misconception that the hairline will have to be moved farther back, as incisions are made deeper behind the natural hairline. Loose skin and muscle in the neck can also be addressed and would be performed at the same time as the facelift surgery. To minimize any visible scarring, incisions usually begin above the hairline at the temple and follow the natural line in front of the ear and curve behind the earlobe into the crease behind the hair and further into the scalp. A facelift and/or necklift takes only a few hours to perform, and leaves patient feeling and looking their very best.
