What is the Best Facelift Procedure?
When it comes to cosmetic surgery, there’s no one-size-fits-all prescription. At Accents Cosmetic Surgery, we understand that each person who seeks our assistance fighting the visible signs of aging has unique needs and desires in seeking a facelift. There are many options to consider when you’re thinking of a facelift. No matter which procedure you choose, you can achieve a more youthful appearance while reducing:
- Deep facial lines and creases
- Loose, hanging skin
- Aging neck
- Excess fat on chin and neck
How do you know which option is best for you? We’re here to explain so you can make the most informed decision possible.
A traditional facelift is a surgical procedure designed to smooth sagging facial skin, reposition fat and facial muscles that have lost youthful firmness, and produce a more lifted, refreshed appearance. Each facelift that Dr. Berkowitz performs is carefully planned, performed with the advanced surgical techniques to create a very natural look.
The Accents Facelift is a specialized non-surgical procedure designed by Dr. Berkowitz to produce dramatic results without the need for invasive surgery. This procedure will tighten the skin of the neck, jaw, and face while resurfacing the facial skin to restore that coveted youthful radiance. Using a combination of SmartLipo Triplex and Mixto fractional laser technology, the entire procedure will leave your skin rejuvenated, without incisions or stitches.
As you begin to age, the underlying structure of your facial skin and muscles lose youthful firmness, leading to deep facial creases and areas of skin laxity. The Precision Lift laser facelift from Accents Cosmetic Surgery stimulates natural skin regeneration and rejuvenation of the facial skin and muscles with advanced laser technology, tightening the skin and facial muscles in one simple procedure.
In recent years, advancements in cosmetic surgery have led to smaller incisions and shorter recovery times, and results that appear far more natural, never pulled or odd. The MACS facelift, also referred to as a “short scar facelift,” is performed by lifting the skin vertically rather than stretching it horizontally, in an older surgical technique that produced a less natural-looking result. This produces elegant, youthful results that are exceptionally natural in appearance.
The first signs of aging traditionally appear on the mid- to lower-face, manifesting in jowls, a double chin, and less defined jawline. A Quick Lift is a minimally-invasive procedure which is performed using a small S-shaped incision which curves over the ear. The facial skin is pulled taut, smoothing lines and creases and restoring a more youthful facial contour, which is then closed with sutures.
