Neck Lift Surgery in Gainesville, Florida
Aging of the face is inevitable. Over time, the supporting structures of the face loosen resulting in the redistribution of not only the skin of the face and neck but also of the deeper structures of the face. Some of the signs and stigmata of facial aging are the development of jowls, flattening of the cheek prominences, deepening of the nasolabial folds, loss of jawline definition and the accumulation of excess skin and fat in the neck. People age differently and for this reason, any operation which attempts to restore a more youthful facial appearance must be customized to each patient.
A face lfit or rhtyidectomy rejuvenates the face and neck by lifting wrinkled and sagging skin, sculpting drooping fat deposits and tightening deeper tissues (“SMAS”) which are loose. A facelift focuses on three primary areas: the jowls, the jawline and central neck. Incisions are placed in natural creases to conceal scars. In Dr. Tyrone ’s hands, no two facelift surgeries are the same. Each operation is customized to the needs and desires of the patient. For example, some patients may require a small incision under the chin to reapproximate the muscle cords in the neck. Other patients may simply require recontouring the fat in the neck without manipulating the superficial muscles in the neck (ie platysmaplasty). For patients whose main concern is there neck, a neck lift can be performed as an isolated procedure. Through a small incision under the chin, the soft tissues of the neck can be recontoured and the muscles reapproximated in the midline. During a neck lift, small incisions are made around the ear lobe and behind the ear to allow for redraping of the neck skin. This operation is wqell suited and quite popular for male patients seeking facial rejuvenation.
Dr. Tyrone offers a full range of face and neck lifts with attention made to restoring both the facial skin and the deeper soft tissues of the face to achieve a long lasting result. A facelift may be done in conjunction with other procedures to help you achieve a balanced, rejuvenated appearance and maximize the results of your surgery.
