Benefits of a Facelift

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. Gawley Plastic Surgery offers traditional facelifts and is an expert in the endoscopic facelift.

Traditional 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
  • Jowls
  • Double chin

Endoscopic Facelift

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
  • Jowls

Choosing Your Procedure

Both the traditional and endoscopic lifts can be performed alone or in combination with other procedures, such as the brow lift or eyelid surgery.
During your initial consultation, one of our surgeons will evaluate the condition of your skin and your overall health. After listening to your goals and concerns, they will recommend the combination of procedures that will best achieve the results you desire.

Mini-Lift

In most cases, Gawley Plastic Surgery 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. We 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, our surgeons warn that patients should beware of surgeons who advertise the lunch-time lift as having comparable results to more extensive facelift techniques.
If you are interested in a facelift in the Scottsdale and Phoenix, Arizona area, one of our surgeons can help you decide which type of procedure is right for you. Please read our Frequently Asked Facelift Questions and call or email us today to schedule your initial consultation.

The Future of Facelifts

One of the main limiting factors for facial rejuvenation remains the quality of the skin.  Years of sun damage, weight changes, and second-hand smoke have a large impact on our ability to control the shape and longevity of results. The […]
