A facelift can turn back the clock on your appearance by as much as ten or 15 years. Over time our skin loses its elasticity and the effects of sun exposure, gravity, and stress on the face show up in the form of wrinkles, sagging, deep folds, and fat deposits. Dr. Gawley offers traditional facelifts and is an expert in the endoscopic facelift.
The traditional facelift addresses the lower two-thirds of your face and neck, removing excess skin and fat and tightening the muscles. The result is a smoother, firmer, more youthful appearance. A traditional facelift can correct:
- Loose skin
- Fat deposits
- Creases below the lower eyelids
- Mid-face sagging
- Creases around the mouth
- Double chin
The endoscopic facelift is minimally invasive and virtually scar less. This method uses tiny incisions and a miniature camera in lifting the cheeks and upper face. The endoscopic facelift can correct:
- Sagging brow
- Frown lines
- Sagging mid-face
- Sagging cheeks
- Cheek folds
- Lines around the mouth
Choosing Your Procedure
During your initial consultation, Dr. Gawley will evaluate the condition of your skin and your overall health. After listening to your goals and concerns, he will recommend the combination of procedures that will best achieve the results you desire.
In most cases, Dr. Gawley does not recommend the mini-lift, also known as the lunch-time lift. It is a quick procedure, but the results are not long-lasting. He will sometimes make exceptions for patients who understand the limitations of the mini-lift but want a fresher look for a special occasion, such as a wedding. However, he warns that patients should beware of surgeons who advertise the lunch-time lift as having comparable results to more extensive facelift techniques.
