Face & Neck Lift improves visible signs of aging in the face, jawline, and neck, such as excess fat and loose skin in the face that creates saddened look, sagging of skin and jowls. Excess fatty deposits under the chin and loose neck skin are also corrected at the same time.The best candidate for a classical facelift is the one with a well-defined bone structure but whose face & skin are slack and sagging due to age or extreme weight loss.
A classical facelift is a surgical technique that restores the beautiful bone structure to the aging jaw, cheeks, and neck. DrRajat Gupta focuses on resuspending the muscular substructure of the face and neck (the SMAS and platysma) to achieve long lasting, natural results.
The modern era of plastic surgery allows scars to be hidden extremely well, so that they are nearly imperceptible, even from a distance of 1-2 inches. Dr. Gupta hides his incisions in the crease in front of the ear or tragus.
Can this procedure be combined with any other procedure?
Absolutely. Many patients undergoing a facelift/neck lift are also candidates for other procedures along with. The most common add-on procedures are eyelifts (upper and lower eyelid blepharoplasty), chin implants, fat grafting, and laser treatment to improve fine lines around the eyes and mouth.
